  • "Oh my goodness, this cottage is amazing, we absolutely loved our stay, it is situated perfectly between our much loved destinations."

    Our 5 year old granddaughter did not want to leave! Neither did we actually! The owner was kind and helpful in the lead up to our holiday for any questions we had. Perfect!!

  • "The cottage was absolutely beautiful."

    Mrs Evans was very helpful and the cottage was comfy, warm and cosy. The scenery is absolutely glorious, lots of beautiful attractions such as castles, places to eat and beaches to visit and friendly locals. I have never visited Wales before and look forward to returning.

  • "Good points - constant hot water, heated kitchen floor, good sized accommodation with good sized bedrooms and lounge."

    Plenty of saucepans, baking trays, casserole dishes etc albeit a bit on the old side. bad points - house needed a good clean - lots of cobwebs in every room, utensils in kitchen drawers need updating - some were broken or just old. Plates and glasses were chipped. Pet hair on kitchen door mat. Patchy wifi connection. We did contact the owner about a couple of issues - broken toilet seat, TV not working and a smell coming from the outside drains and he did spend a day fixing them which we were grateful for. Y Giler pub was nice - good pub food but you need to book a table and order food 24 hours in advance. We visited Bala lake, Conwy falls. Llandudno and Betws y Coed - walked to Swallow Falls. This was the most expensive property we have ever stayed in and it wasn't as nice as I was expecting compared to other holiday properties we have stayed in previously.

  • "Such a fabulous farmhouse which we really enjoyed and wouldn’t hesitate booking again."

    Loved it being on the a5 for great access to interesting places. Only slight criticism is the was grouting that needed re doing in the one en-suite shower and another big pot / casserole dish or two would've been great but we would still stay again and loved every minute. The house was super warm and the owner was lovely. Thank you!

  • "The house is spacious, well equipped and comfortable There was 1 minor snag on day 1 and the owner was there in a heartbeat to sort it out."

    Although a little remote, it was ideally situated as central to so many locations we wanted to visit. Parking for numerous cars and a great little pub (restaurant) a mere 5 min walk away. Will definitely return to stay here.

  • "Glan Nug is a nice house, less than a 5 min walk to nearest pub, which serves nice food."

    The location is quiet and remote except for the A5 which runs in front of the house, this does however give good access routes to a lot of locations. We found the nearest large supermarket (tesco) to be about 30mins drive away.

  • "Glan Nug is a lovely cottage situated in a small hamlet about 8 miles from Betws-y-coed."

    Although the cottage is on the main A5 this was not an issue as we hardly noticed traffic noise. There is a very nice pub just a 5 minute walk across the road. There was ample room inside the house for our large family and outside space with decking beside a babbling stream. There was plenty of room for parking, we had five cars between us. Key collection and return was easy and we all had a very enjoyable stay. If we were to have one small criticism it would be that the dishwasher needed salt and rinse aid to be able to use it. Overall, we would definitely stay again and recommend to others with large families. Mike & Madeline Dixon 28th May 2018

  • "We chose this accommodation for a family group as we were booked on the nearby Zipwire and this was the perfect location."

    It was good having two sitting rooms so that those who wanted to watch TV could do so and others could read or play games in the second room. The kitchen was very well equipped and it was refreshing to have supplies such as cleaning materials (washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, cleaning cloths and tea towels etc) available as many properties fail to provide these and it is then difficult to clear up properly following meals etc. The bedrooms all seemed freshly decorated and were of a good size and the ratio of en-suites/bathrooms was perfect. There was plenty of hot water too which was great. It was nice to have the outside seating area, particularly as we were lucky enough to have good weather and the bonus of a pub within walking distance. Parking was very good too - plenty of room for our vehicles. The only small recommendation I would make is that the two front bedrooms would benefit from black out blinds/curtains to help block out the headlights of passing cars on the main road.

    We had members at different times during the week including a dog. Plenty of room, ample numbers of dishes etc and the two rooms with tvs,games etc was really good. Scenery is lovely , easy to find and not long to get to places like Betws-y-Coed. Highly recommend.

  • "We had an absolutely wonderful time at Glan Nug."

    The location was ideal for us to travel in all directions and visit tourist attractions in North Wales. The downsides were a) the cleanliness e.g. some of the saucepans and frying pans had dried up food on them, the washing up brush should have been put in the bin, the bath mat was covered with a lump of dark hair ......... it generally just wasn't very clean and b) things were very tired and could have done with replacing. Having said that we did have a lovely time and everyone we met was very friendly.

  • "The cottage as lovely and very spacious, my partner loved the log burner and was keen to get a fire going as soon as we stepped foot into the cottage."

    It was well equipped with plates, cutlery etc as we spent 3 nights here and decided to cook on a couple of occasions. Myself, partner, friends and family who stayed with us were very pleased with the cottage too. Even though the cottage was on the main A5 road we had no problems with noise just the occasional car going past which didn't bother us at all. We would all definitely return to the cottage for a weekend getaway maybe even next year :D Thank you to the owners of the cottage who put some birthday balloons and banners up for my partner as this was a nice surprise for him :)
