    Lovely walks from the cabin. Cosy, warm and clean with a lovely comfortable bed. We sat out on the balcony every morning and evening and watched the birds and squirrels. The grounds are well kept and it’s such a beautiful place to be if you want a break from a busy life

    Stunning views to wake up to. It would have been difficult to find had it not been for Sylvia’s directions. However this is really not a problem. Only about a five minutes drive from the nearest village with all the amenities but still feels like you’re in the middle of nowhere. Overall just perfect

    Spotless interior with everything you need for a relaxing break. When we ate in, the facilities were all we needed. If you want to eat out, the Maenan Abbey restaurant is a short stroll down the drive. We did and had a nice meal there.

    It's compact, well laid out, and has all of the necessities. The area is absolutely stunning and a great base to explore the mountains and the north coast. The hosts are friendly and around to help if anything pops up. The local Fish and Chip shop in Llanrwst is a must.

  • "The blueBells Cottage Oct 2022 A one bedroom chalet/lodge, in pleasant woodland surroundings, overlooking the Conwy valley."

    A step up from the caravan, in most areas, except the kitchen, which although adequate, was small. Worktop space lacking. All the facilities that you could want are there, except for a washing machine. The view from the main window was very good. The cottage is up a long narrow rough drive. A word of warning to anyone trying to find the cottage. The post code on a sat nav or phone will only get you near the main area on the main road. If coming from the North, then you have to go past the drive entrance, do a U-turn, then cut across the road to the start of the drive. then up the single track. It is signposted and has reflextive triangles at the entrance. The cottage is realtively small, but has all that you need. The kitchen is the smallest room, though useable. A decent shower in the bathroom, though more shelves would help. A reasonable amount of storage. Heating in the living room is provided by an electric fire. A bit noisy, but it quickly heats up the room. The bedroom does not have a heater, but there is an electric blanket. Still, adequate on a cold October night. A deck and lounger are provided outside. A lot of handy little stickers are provided by the owners, giving guidance to to such things as switch locations. The cottage was a good base for visiting the North of Wales area. Trains and buses possbile, but the times are infrequent, so driving is a more likely option. Note: the footbridge at Dolgarrog is closed, preventing a walking option to the other side of the valley. The cottage felt clean and I had a pleasant stay.

    Lovely cosy little cottage surrounded of trees and where you can watch the sunset behind the mountains and also see the moon in the evenings from the same spot. The location is good, far away from the towns but with easy and quick access to them all. And the owners were always very welcoming and considerate. If you're looking for a peaceful place to stay, I definitely recommend the bluebell cottage. Thank you Sylvia. Pat

  • "The chalet is in a beautiful spot, lovely views."

    It had everything we needed plus extras and spotlessly clean. A great pity the bathroom and kitchen weren’t just a bit bigger. It would have made all the difference and made it a perfect place to stay. There was some wasted space by an attempt to make a second bedroom which was a complete failure as there was no room with the bed even to stand up in there. It would have made an ideal en suite bathroom and then the existing bathroom could be put into the kitchen which adjoined it.
