  • "We were looking for the perfect family holiday with opportunities to explore and be adventurous while also enjoying evening peace and tranquillity and that is exactly what we got."

    The accommodation was perfect with high end finishes and very spacious which is what a family needs. The hospitality was great with such a friendly and inviting host. We enjoyed day trips which were short drives away and included a rip up Snowdon, beach days in Llandudno, castle trip in Conwy and outdoor walks. We have more to see and am sure we will be back as we fell in love with this farm based family orientated setup.

    It was very clean and well stocked with all we needed for our long weekend, we wanted to stay longer it was so nice. Great location to lots around and plenty to do with a short drive in the car or a walk to the village down the hill.

  • "We stayed at Pen Y Bryn cottage as a family to celebrate my in laws ruby wedding anniversary."

    The cottage exceeded our expectations, the views from the cottage was amazing and framed beautifully by the big windows both down stairs and upstairs. The cottage was warm and comfortable and had everything we needed, the kitchen was well equipped with a full size fridge and freezer and everything you needed to cook a meal if you wanted. Plus if you want shopping delivered Tesco deliver here. Or there is a big farm shop 10 minutes away near bodnant gardens. The log burners were excellent and made the evenings so cosy and the owners provided enough wood to keep us going all week. The farm was wonderful with cows, hens and even a couple of donkeys the owners made us feel really welcome including there lovely dogs. They provided a welcome pack of there own eggs and locally sourced goods that we all enjoyed. This cottage is just perfect whether you want to stay in and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the lovely cottage or go out and explore the many things to do in the area. We all loved the cottage so much, we was sad to leave it and miss waking up to those lovely views. Thank you so much for making my in laws ruby anniversary so memorable. We will definitely come and stay again soon.

  • "This cottage is idyllic."

    The views across the valley are breath-taking and absolutely beautiful. The cottage is spacious, well designed and well equipped. It is situated on a working farm and the hosts are welcoming and informative, and they live in the farm house near to the cottage. We were a family of mum, dad, two grandparents and a three-year-old. We all had a brilliant week and would love to come again.

    The countryside views with scenic hill views from lounge and bedroom are stunning. The cottage is very spacious ideal for larger family. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Was hard to leave at the end of the week and will defiantly be booking again. Location, whilst remote was still easily accessible to local shops and pubs a mile away in Llanrwst with great restaurants in Betws-y-coed four miles away or to coast approximately twelve miles. If you are looking for a cottage in North Wales look no further. Thankyou for a lovely week.

  • "The hosts had thought of everything when fitting out the tastefully decorated cottage/providing useful facilities."

    It was also very spacious and comfortable. This is just a tiny point but when your head hit the pillow, the fresh smell was gorgeous every single night and even there when we stripped the beds on the final day. As I said , a tiny detail but it is details like this that make a difference. We loved the welcome pack with the farm fresh eggs etc - a lovely touch. We had a brilliant weather and actually felt slightly disappointed that we couldn’t use the log burner!!! The location is excellent - we loved the views and our grandson enjoyed chatting to the cows/sheep/donkeys that popped by to say hello!! The farm dogs were very friendly especially Nel who got plenty of cuddles. It is also a great location for getting out and about - half an hour drive or less to a range of places and very close to Llanrwst, Betws-y-Coed and Snowdonia. The hosts left a recommended guide folder for things to do and places to eat out - very helpful. I’m not sure we will be able to back next year as we are restricted to certain times and it already seems booked up but we will look to book again. We have already recommended to several people. Oh and we left something when we left - Caryl rang us immediately and posted it out to us . Just another example of great hosts!

  • "The cottage was in a beautiful setting."

    Eventhough is was on a working farm, we had complete privacy. The hosts had arranged for milk, butter, coffee and tea, as well as a local fruit cake, which we thought it was a nice touch. Our 3 year old and myself were in bed or the sofa with a horrible cold and didn't explore the area as much as we would've liked. The only thing I would improve would probably be the TV, only because of our personal experience as we were house bound. If we had a smart TV we could've logged in to streaming services. Would definitely recommend and we are already thinking of the next time we are going back.

    I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to explore all this lovely area has to offer. We have a few future recommendations for consideration. Another comfy chair for the lounge area, there were six adults in our party, we found sitting in the middle of the large sofa on the edge of two cushions was not very comfortable. Having single zip linked bed in all rooms would give maximum flexibility, particularly if more than two of the party are not couples. The sofa bed does give other options but is not ideal as early risers have to pass through this room to reach the kitchen. The fridge was also on the small side for six adults. Not enough cutlery if you want to completely fill the dishwasher Lastly it says three cars on the internet, currently room for four Please note these are only observations, not criticisms as we had a lovely holiday.
