  • "Had a lovely stay, lovely and peaceful and very comfortable beds, instructions left for everything that you might use in the house."

    Easy driving to various places eg Llanwrst, Llandudno, Conwy, Colwyn bay, house very clean, ate out quite a bit but also cooked some nice meals in the house with a local butchers nearby in Trefriw which we walked to less than a 10min walk and 2 nice pubs serving food

  • "Had a lovely week in a great location for exploring the area."

    Short drive into Betsw y Coed and good pubs and shop in Trefriw village as well. Would recommend Chandlers Bistro in the village too. Loved waking up in the morning to the view and baby lambs playing in the fields opposite. Nice comfy bedrooms both en-suite which is a bonus for us being 2 couples. Kitchen well equipped and we lit the log burner in the mornings and sat round the table having breakfast and enjoying the view. Would have been nice to have a working fire in the living room for the evenings, but probably a reason for this. Nice comfy sofas too. Stairs up to bedrooms steep so probably not good for people with mobility issues especially coming down, we had slippers with us, but the wood could be slippy if just wearing socks. As others have said pulling out of the driveway onto the road can be tricky, but we managed and it wouldn’t stop us staying there again. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

    We didn’t have particularly good weather and property felt quite cold downstairs (even with heating on). China/utensils of lovely quality and certainly had all modcons (with detailed user instructions, which was great) Location fantastic. 100% need mirror at bottom of drive… absolute nightmare getting out as on blind bend - one of us had to get out of car, cross road (on blind bend) and wave car out…. Could easily be remedied with mirror…. Neighbour had one.

    Clean and comfortable and although on somewhat of a busy road at times it did not bother us , getting off the drive is easier if someone goes across the road and watches the traffic and the driver out . A wonderful base for visiting lots of places and it’s in a very beautiful part of the country, we had a fantastic week , and the weather was beautiful , so that really was a bonus too , many thanks

  • "Excellent cottage with amazing views."

    We had a 4 night break here and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The cottage is extremely well equipped with everything we needed, and much more. The cottage was very clean and beds very very comfortable. Nice touch to have milk, tea, coffee and waffles on arrival. The location was ideal for exploring North Wales and plenty of local knowledge at hand with leaflets and information from the owners. The driveway was no issue as you could use the mirror opposite and listen for the traffic and see in the other direction. We would 100% recommend staying here and hoping to return in 2024. Thank you to the owners and the housekeeping team.

    First impression it smelled lovely . It was clean warm and comfortable and well equipped . Location is great and accessible to many attractions . Only difficulty we encountered was the steepness of the entrance drive and closeness to the main road which took a bit of getting used to. Other than that it was a great experience staying there and would highly recommend it .

  • "For us, with our granddaughter it was pretty well perfect."

    We wanted somewhere near the three Zip World venues. Maybe lower tog duvets for the summer. For me as the driver getting out of and turning around in the driveway was a bit of a nuisance. It’s mentioned in the house book to use the mirror on the pole opposite. But it’s there for the neighbour. Anyway, the only safe way to do it is to get a passenger to cross the road, and check it’s clear to pull out.

  • "The drive up to the cottage is very tricky and this should be made clearer in the description."

    You can only go up the drive from one direction, it is on a blind bend therefore reversing into the road is impossible. I had to do a 7 point turn in a Golf so anyone with a bigger car would really struggle to turn their car around. The issues with the drive need to be explained so that people can make an informed choice. Also some extra toilet rolls would have been good. Only two half rolls available in the cottage. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- OWNERS RESPONSE We are sorry that you found the drive difficult during your stay. The drive is already highlighted in our cottage description. There is a mirror available to aid the exit from the drive and also the option to park on the road in front of the cottage.

The property

Trefriw 0.5 miles.

This charming, double-fronted, semi-detached character cottage, with stunning views, is in an elevated position on the edge of the town of Trefriw, in the heart of the Conwy Valley, five miles from Betws-y-Coed, in North Wales.

This delightfully-presented cottage offers a warm and welcoming holiday home for friends and family, and has been stylishly furnished throughout.

Off road parking leads up steps to a delightful cottage garden with far-reaching views over the valley, and when you step inside the property you will appreciate the quality of finish in the modern, fitted kitchen with dining table, warmed by a woodburner, set into a stone chimney breast.

The sitting room with feature fireplace offers a relaxing social space with comfy modern sofas, where you can sit and enjoy the views over the garden and across to the River Conwy.

Upstairs both bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms, and offer a double room and twin room with undisturbed views from the dormer windows.

Enjoy sitting outside this delightful cottage in the sunshine with a good book and morning coffee, with a woodland backdrop, planning which of the many local attractions to visit, such as Trefriw Woollen Mill, the Surf Snowdonia water park or the delights of Betws-y-Coed with its numerous craft and arts shops.

Alternatively, perhaps enjoy an energetic walk up through Trefriw to Llyn Crafnant with its circular lakeside walk.

This is a lovely cottage with stunning views and furnished with everything you require for a memorable family holiday or cosy romantic break.

About the location


Llanrwst 2 miles; Betws-y-Coed 5 miles.

The pretty village of Trefriw is situated in the beautiful Conwy Valley and is within the Snowdonia National Park. Trefriw is ideally placed for all manner of activities and attractions with the splendour of both the National Park and the North Wales Coast on the doorstep. For its size the village offers a good selection of shops, pubs etc. There is also a working woollen mill and craft shop. The Trefriw Wells Spa - discovered by the Romans and still in use today - is worth a visit. Fishing is available on the River Conwy and also in wonderful lakes in the hills above Trefriw, notably Llyn Crafnant. The whole area is a walker’s paradise and there are numerous beautiful routes around and above the village. Other local attractions include Gwydyr Castle which is a fine example of a Tudor courtyard house, and the extensive Gwydyr Forest Park. Llanrwst is a fine old market town with a good range of local shops reached across the River Conwy from Trefriw by a famous bridge. Betws-y-Coed, North Wales' most popular inland resort, is also only a short drive away.
