“Needs some superficial DIY”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014
2
people found this review helpful

Cottage looks pleasant from the outside, was warm and inviting inside. On closer inspection parts were slightly grubby with spiders webs hanging in and around some lights and light shades and empty boxes stacked behind the TV. The cooker was also difficult to figure out due to the markings on the controls being worn out and sticky. The door on the oven was also worn and difficult to close properly. In the bathroom (which is downstairs) the extractor was hanging loose from the ceiling and the main light was not working so the only light in the bathroom was from the light over the mirror. The outside back garden is unkept and to get access to the patio set or BBQ takes some fine manipulation of the broken shed lock.

Upstairs the decor is dated and lacks a cottage feel. My impression was that the owners dumped what they no longer needed/used into the cottage. The best part was the fireplace and wood burner which was the most characteristic part of the cottage and a warm and snuggly heat when lit. One slightly puzzling feature is that the cottage has beds for six people but only two/two seater sofa's in the lounge.

If you need mobile phone access during your stay then forget as in the village there was no service on any network. The cottage also has no WiFi.

Many thanks for taking the time to feed back on your stay. We are glad that you felt the cottage was warm and cosy. We were disappointed to hear that you felt that the cottage needed some superficial DIY. We have arranged to inspect immediately. We have deliberately avoided wifi to ensure that it is a "get away from it all" place, but in light of your comments will survey past guests for their views.
Kindest regards,

This was our second visit in 4 months and did not disappoint. We took the road left out of the village this time for some wonderful views which we didn't see first time round. Good location, clean and well priced.

“Absolutely stunning and perfect!”
Reviewed May 31, 2014 for a stay in May 2014
1
person found this review helpful

This was our first visit to Bryn Conwy Cottage and we certainly hope to return again. A beautiful and quiet location with lovely views. The Cottage itself had a very lovely feel to it - plenty of room for myself, my husband and three children (aged 11, 6 and 2). It had everything we could possibly need and more. The children loved the small play park in the field behind the Cottage - there was an air of "feeling safe" in the little Hamlet. The added bonus was that the Cottage was so remote that there was no mobile signal (unless we stood in the middle of the field at the back of the Cottage) and no wifi. It was the perfect getaway. Betws-y-Coed was beautiful and we did some lovely walks up in the mountains/hills as well as shopping. My husband and my eldest (11) conquered Mount Snowdon and we hope to all go one day. The Cottage's location meant that we felt everything was in reach, but at a non imposing distance. We could not praise it highly enough. Thank you so much :) xx

I liked the trust Carol had with guests staying there - no asking for refundable deposits, post a book back later if you haven't finished it, lots of toys, plenty of crockery, no coin in the slot meters, leave the key under the rock when you go.
Thanks for a good holiday.
Dave.

“Perfect family break”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This was our first trip with a newborn and toddler and this cottage ticked every box. The quality of properties which we stayed at pre children, the character that we look for and the conveniences necessary when travelling with children were all evident in this gem of a property. It was immaculately clean and feature full. We will be looking to book again later in the year. The booking process was seamless and Carols communication was prompt and helpful. Really great place.

“Looking to escape?”
Reviewed April 23, 2013 for a stay in May 2012

I would go back here tomorrow. If you want to escape the chaos of daily life (which we all need to do at times) I would definitely recommend you go and spend some time here. It's like home from home.

The cottage is located in a beautiful area of Betws-y-Coed. It's location is what makes it, in my opinion. I wanted to be able to relax and have peace and quiet. That is exactly what I got. I only heard the sounds of nature - it was perfect.

If you do want to get out and about there is plenty to do for adults, children, or all the family. We didn't have time to do all we wanted to!

I did communicate quite a bit with the owners ahead of our stay there. They were fantastic - an added bonus.
