“A chocolate box cottage in the perfect location”

3 adults and 5 children stayed at the Royal Oak Cottage last week and wow, what a beautiful chocolate box cottage. The owners have tastefully restored this 16th Century cottage giving it a boutique feel yet still retaining its rustic charm. Everything was as Becky had described, from the wonderfully comfy beds and soft towels to the crockery and tableware, we even found champagne flutes which are always welcome once the children were in bed!

My first time in North Wales I really didn't know what to expect, I needn't have worried because the location was simply fantastic. Parking was easy for us to find, to the left of the cottage are 12 spaces for residents and visitors. These are free and therefore very desirable. Despite the fact that we had two 4x4s between us we managed to park here every night. The cottage overlooks the quay and is positioned well so that you are a short stroll into town where you can find a great bakery, the best butcher's shop and a local small supermarket. You also happen to be 50 feet away from the friendliest pub - The Liverpool Arms.

The fish and chip shop nestled in the castle walls a few feet from the pub served the yummiest fish and chips I have ever had. Be careful of the seagulls if you decide to eat on the beach as they will swoop down and pinch your food!

My children usually love watching the telly in the evening, they had so much fun scooting around, playing on the beach and looking for crabs that the telly didn't even get switched on.

While we were there we took the children to the castle, travelled to Llandudno using the open top bus, went on the cable cars whilst there and took the children on the pier. We also drove to Snowdonia, Llanberis, Abersoch and went for dinner and champagne at the Deganwy Quay hotel which has the most stunning views. Luckily enough the Conwy classical music festival was on during our stay so we managed to catch a night at the opera.

I'm definitely going to rebook for next year!
