  • "An excellent stay."

    The cottage is lovely and welcoming - we felt at home as soon as we stepped in. Really well equipped with lots of thought gone into its practicality. Definitely one of the best we have stayed in. Good communication with the owner and will definitely plan a return visit. Highly recommended.

    Thank you for taking the time to review. I’m very happy you enjoyed your stay at the cottage, and I would be very pleased to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

    Thanks for taking the time to review. I’m really happy you enjoyed your stay, so much that you have rebooked. Thank you also for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy, makes our job a lot easier. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful peaceful cottage Some work going on at neighbours houses Was a bit noisy , but cannot be helped and not the hosts fault Would be made better with an iron, ironing board and front garden fence That said would book again."

    Hi Mary, I’m happy that you enjoyed enough to want to return at some point. As the cottage is old and small, there is not a lot of storage space, but i will consider how I can incorporate an ironing board. As stated in Sykes cottage information, the front garden is not enclosed to be able to leave a car parking space, but the back garden area is fully enclosed, and has seating areas if wanted. Thank you for taking the time to review. Property Owner

  • "We were extremely pleased with this lovely property."

    Tucked away in a cosy row of cottages with a fantastic view, from front window, of the fells opposite the peaceful front garden. Inside the well appointed cottage was everything we needed for a warm and stress free week with our 2 dogs. All the modern amenities that we all expect these days were there. The front garden was a pretty and peaceful place to relax with very comfortable garden furniture. Our 2 'golden oldy' dogs were quite happy to stay in garden but as there is no fence across bottom of garden there could be the need for a long line tether for some 'inquisitive' dogs!! There are numerous walks straight from the property and access to a beach which was a lovely surprise too. So, peace and quiet, beautiful views, cosy but spacious cottage with all mod.cons, lovely neighbours, lovely walks without having to keep using the car and a grocery shop within easy walking distance. Also just a few minutes drive into lovely Conwy. We will be back in 2024!!

    Thank you for this fantastic review, makes our efforts worthwhile. Will be great to welcome you back again. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is in a rural setting ideal for walkers etc."

    We intended to see the area by car due to limited mobility Access is limited to small cars via a narrow lane and narrow bridge over a stream the only way to it Needs some updating but think the owner is keeping the character of the house instead of using modern basic fittings

    I’m sorry the cottage was not to your liking. All fixtures and fittings are new and modern and installed in last 3 years. The front door is also relatively new, and I am sorry you struggled to unlock it, but glad I was there to help. I did try to advise you on the best way to manage the bridge access, you responded, that you were a competent driver, and perfectly able to manage the bridge, which although narrow, is wide enough for transit vans.

  • "Cae Bach is a beautiful cottage in a stunning location and was exceptionally clean and everything we needed."

    The owner was very accommodating on our arrival day arranging for us to gain access early due to the extreme heat. I would like to say that I don't think the property is for anyone with slight disabilities or requires a walking aid, the garden path was narrow and very over grown which slightly took the charm away. The owner did also apologise in advance for the building work taking place next door which I said I fully understood but when they woke you with drilling, hacking and banging just after 8am two mornings our holiday lie in was not a pleasurable experience.

    I’m really sorry that you found the path too narrow. We do attempt to maintain the foliage to the side of the path, and did cut an obvious bramble back yesterday, but it has been planted to encourage pollinators, birds etc, and therefore we only cut back as much as is necessary, at this time of year, to allow access. If i had known it was causing you problems with access, i would have come and cut it back earlier. I can only apologise again re the building work which started unexpectedly, and am extremely sorry that it caused you disruption. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was in a very pretty and extremely quiet location with several excellent walks from the door, great not to have to use the car everyday."

    The scenery was amazing from the mountains on the walk to Conwy. It was especially well situated to visit many attractions with the A55 nearby . Our only negative would be the parking which is accessed over a very narrow bridge and then the turning into the parking spot was tight certainly not for the faint hearted - maybe some of the brambles opposite the drive could be cut back a little to give a bit more room to manoevure. There was parking in the road adjacent but sometimes quite full. All in all a very relaxing place to stay.

    It is homely and comfortable and provided everything we needed for the week. We really our stay and we were very lucky with the weather, so utilised the out door area on a few days. The conservatory provided a great place for meals when it did rain or was just too chilly to sit outside. It was also a good place for morning yoga. We would come come and stay again.

    Sometimes cottages look nice in the photos but in reality they are a bit tired and need refurbishing. This cottage was clean and modern but retained its character. Also the location was even better than we expected. It had the advantage of appearing remote e.g. sheep, hills, a stream yet it was close to local amenities e.g. a very nice pub and a very nice beach. A good central location for touring north Wales.

  • "We stayed at Cae Back for 5 nights along with our two doggies."

    The cottage was very warm and cosy. There is a log burner as well but we didn't need that. We loved the comfortable bed and the large powerful shower. The kitchen is well equipped and the hosts provide all the basics. The location is rural and there are several walks that you can do with the dogs right from the cottage. The pub at the Fairy Glen is only about 5 minutes walk away and does a good dinner. We have quite a large car and we did struggle getting access to the parking space. You have to manoeuvre over a lovely old bridge but it is very tight. You can park on the road just a minute's walk away. Take a torch as it is dark for a winter stay. We really enjoyed our stray and would recommend the cottage to other guests.

    The only thing I would say, is, the beds in the back bedroom were quite large, very comfy, but not a lot of room in the bedroom. The beds could be a little narrower, leaving a bit more room to move around. This is in no way a criticism, the beds and bedding were really lovely,(the duvet was so cosy). The kitchen and bathroom were very of very high standard, and the whole ambience of the cottage was really welcoming. Log burner was a real bonus, and made us all feel at home when it was a bit stormy. We would definitely book again, and even stay a little longer. Thanks for a lovey stay.

About the location


Penmaenmawr 1.5 miles; Conwy 3.5 miles.

Dwygyfylchi is situated on the stunning North Wales coast between Penmaenmawr and Conwy. It looks out across to the Irish Sea, Conwy Bay, Anglesey and the Great Orme off Llandudno, where dolphins can sometimes be seen swimming in the distance. On a clear day, the Isle of Man can be visible. It is nestled at the foot of Moel Lys mountain, which offers many beautiful walks and vistas. A recently opened cycling track enables you to ride along the coast eastwards towards Conwy and beyond, or westwards towards Llanfairfechan. Located by the beach at Penmaenmawr is a Sailing Club and there is also the Penmaenmawr Golf Club; visitors are welcome at both. On the other end of the beach to the Sailing Club is a promenade area offering skate boarding, a children’s playpark, bowling green, promenade cafe and all-weather tennis courts, as well as some of the safest swimming in the area on a long sandy beach. Alternatively, you can drive (or walk) up the Sychnant Pass, from where there are many walking trails leading off. Further on, you can drive up through the beautiful Conwy Valley alongside the River Conwy. On the way to the Sychnant Pass you go through the charming village of Capelulo, where there are a couple of restaurants. This is a lovely area which provides a fantastic base for your holiday in North Wales
