  • "Had a great stay at this beautiful cottage and will definitely return again."

    Only thing I could fault was that the kitchen could’ve been more equipped. Ie oven trays, washing up liquid, tea and coffee. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

  • "This was our third year in a row at this lovely cottage."

    It is very well equipped, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Everyone on the farm is very friendly too. It’s an excellent base for exploring North Wales with easy access to the A55 Expressway and there is plenty to do in the area. We will definitely return sometime, we really love our holidays here.

  • "Lovely stay!"

    We left having had a brilliant week in a fantastic rural property. A few small bits of feedback. (1) Wi-Fi was very intermittent with none of the smart TV services connecting (2) The showers were incredibly noisy downstairs (3) Not enough glasses (4) Very blunt knives in the kitchen - an accident waiting to happen (5) No instructions for the appliances - we worked them out through trial and error but instructions would have been easier. None of the above affected our stay very much at all.

  • "Cottage was in a nice location but lacked general items."

    No trays or oven proof dishes to use the oven kettle burnt your hand as it leaked steam. Through the handle. Some doors had warped so didn’t close. One bedroom had a skylight with no shade so room was full of light at 5 in the morning Had leak on first morning reported this but next they I’m mopping this up before breakfast Final straw was ants all over the living room With a small baby this is not acceptable when I informed the landlord we were leaving there was no sorry just I will have to have a look at it.

  • "The cottage was in a perfect spot to explore the North Wales coast."

    We enjoyed walks up Great & Little Orme, Aber Falls, around Betws-y-coed, Conwy Castle & of course Llandudno prom. The cottage itself was ‘home from home’, perfect for 2 friends to enjoy peace & quiet, each with our own personal space of double bedroom with en-suite, a well equipped kitchen & dining area and a cosy sitting room with a large TV (for the football!). The supermarket in Abergele was perfect to stock the week’s supply. A surprise basket of goodies was so appreciated on arrival. We would certainly recommend these cottages for families, two couples or like us two friends wanting to visit the area. Thankyou for our ‘chilled out’ stay in your lovely home.

    It is finished to a very high standard, well equipped and spotlessly clean. We love staying on a family run working farm. We enjoyed our welcome pack of local produce once again. There is plenty to do in the area and there are books, games etc to borrow too. We’ve already booked for next year!

    I contacted Catrin later than I should have done (day before arrival) to confirm on arrival time etc and she was very understanding and helpful. The rate was extremely competitive, the rooms/bathrooms were very clean and all of the required amenities were in place. I would certainly use Bwthyn Y Wennol again, highly recommended!

  • "General cleanliness excellent and good showers."

    Decent t.v. Cooker etc very good. Lacks a little in pots and pans but we coped ok. After we bought a chopping board and a baking tray. So the cottage has those now. Could do with a frying pan as the existing one is small and for some reason I never fathomed doesn’t conduct heat on the electric hob . All in all a lovely place to stay. The flying displays from the swallows was delightful and so nice to see the calf’s in the paddock.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here."

    The location itself is beautiful, set on the farm and being able to walk around with the children to see the animals in the fields was just lovely. The views for miles were gorgeous. Thankfully we had some lovely warm evenings and were able to sit outside to eat and enjoy the scenery. The cottage itself was very homely and spacious for a family of 4. Very nicely decorated and the bedrooms were perfect and a good size. The location is perfect distance from beaches, many tourist attractions and lots of countryside walks. The only slight niggles we have are that the sky light in one of the bedrooms did not have a blind which made the room very bright and difficult for the children to sleep and woke very early. The window was far too high to attach a travel blind. The sofas were also quite uncomfortable and the WiFi was very intermittent. Communication with the owners via the mobile number in the welcome book was poor as we texted for a fresh bed sheet due to one of us becoming ill, and had no response. The store room could also do with an update as the Children’s games were incomplete and the tumble dryer hard to get to due to too much in its way. Like I said these were only slight niggles for us as we loved our stay here and will definitely consider returning. It’s an ideal place to rent all 4 cottages for large family gatherings which is what we would consider next. We had a brilliant time, thank you!

  • "Lovely location (enjoyed visiting the ponies) and clean, well equipped property."

    Absolutely loved the shower but not the oven (didn't seem to warm up well). We had a lovely time and found our property very comfortable - the only thing I'd say is that we had a sky light in our bedroom with no blind/curtain (possibly as it was very high) the early morning light streamed into our room at 5am ish and we just didn't sleep well as a result. When I reported it, the owners said they would look into a blind but that no one else had ever complained.
