  • "Lovely cottage in beautiful location."

    We had a great holiday. Cottage needs a little love, however. There were several minor issues that we could overlook, but not the fact that the washer/drier didn't work. We arrived on the Friday and reported this Saturday morning, but we weren't told until Thursday, the day before we left, that the engineer was coming the following Monday. Felt the owner could have been more helpful. I would also recommend an information book / visitor book.

  • "The description said a shop was nearby (which was a factor in our decision) but it's closed some years ago."

    Very farm housey (sic) decorations. Location was wonderful. Owners friendly and approachable to questions. Great WIFI which was very handy for planning the next days adventures. Lots of utensils and nice to load up a dishwasher at the end of the day. Would recommend.

  • "Very tired in need of decorating, shower in en-suite needs resealing and descaling, lots of mould on shower hose and plug was loose."

    WiFi was non existent, wood for wood burner but nothing to light it with. Lots of cobwebs up corners. Would of been nice for it to be decorated for Christmas. Curtains in bathroom hanging off rail.

  • "This is a fabulous cottage in a wonderful location with fantastic views of the Conwy Valley."

    The cottage itself was spotlessly clean and very well equipped with everything you could possibly need for a very comfortable stay. The owners were lovely and on hand should you need anything. We couldn’t have wished for more. We will certainly be booking it again.

  • "Great location and pleasant hosts but disappointed by the poor condition of the cottage."

    Doors didn't fit frames, and main door had to be lifted bodily to close it (heavy door). One en suite shower is not enough for 6 adults, additional bath is not as useful. Scruffy state of repair, varnish rubbed off doors, holes in wall, needs an overhaul top to bottom, the poorest condition cottage we have stayed in,.

  • "Cottage was nicely situated,hosts were friendly,the house was dated and needed a complete makeover."

    No wi-fi access and tv far too small for size of room.

  • "Ty John is a beautiful cottage in stunning grounds and surrounded by breath-taking views."

    Its owners, Pete & Jacquie Marshall gave us an extremely warm welcome and were helpful with facilities, advice & information throughout our stay. The whole stay with friends and dogs was very easy and comfortable....I think the only comment, is that the garden area around the cottage would benefit from low-level gates to contain the dogs safely. We would highly recommend Ty John and sincerely hope it isn't too long before we return.

    Everything was there which was required but all had seen better days. With a bit of maintainance and updating the cottage could be lovely but work needs doing.

  • "Really nice and comfortable house in a beautiful location ."

    A little difficult to find on the last mile or so . Owners very friendly. Had a lovely long weekend exploring the beautiful surroundings The only thing was that the garden isnt enclosed so made it a little awkward with our dog , especially if your dog isn't good with livestock .

About the location


Conwy 4 miles; Llandudno 7 miles; Betws-y-Coed 12 miles.

Situated within the Snowdonia National Park, this beautiful village stands amidst the tranquil countryside of the lovely Conwy Valley. Steeped in history, the village is well known amongst walkers and ramblers for its charming white washed stone cottages and pretty gardens and for its renowned mountain trail, which climbs to 1400ft following the old Roman road across scenic mountains and moorland, ending at the stunning Aber Falls. Only 4 miles away is delightful Conwy, a World Heritage Site dominated by its splendid castle and completely enclosed in its well-preserved town walls. There's plenty to enjoy in Conwy - the picturesque fishing harbour, Plas Mawr, one of the best preserved medieval town houses in the country, the National Trust's Aberconwy House, Britain's "smallest house" (worth an interesting, if quick, visit!) as well as the town's shops, pubs and restaurants nestling along the narrow and winding streets. Close by are excellent beaches, world famous Bodnant Gardens, Victorian Llandudno and stunning Betws-y-Coed.
