The cottage of Bryn Awel is in the very center of Penmachno. The valley is surrounded by sheep covered hills. Across from the cottage is an old and historic church that is a UNESCO site. It was a cozy, well appointed place to land for the start of our Welsh tour. A cute kitchen with everything we needed, including a view out across the valley. Very comfortable beds with warm duvets. We had everything we needed right at our fingertips. Anne and Colin were wonderful hosts, helping with luggage and suggestions for places to eat and visit.
Stayed for a long weekend with my partner in July 2016... We both loved the cottage: traditional, clean and cosy (with a log burner!!), and the immediate surroundings: a small, quiet and picturesque village with plenty of places to walk and explore. We found plenty to keep us occupied: driving around the local areas, shopping in the nearby towns, visiting local attractions, climbing Snowdonia (the log fire was greatly appreciated following this!!) and simply relaxing in the cottage (a lovely place to be with all of the necessary facilities!). The owners were very welcoming and helpful too; providing plenty of information about the local area and replying to queries. Overall, a relaxing, scenic and enjoyable break from daily life!!!
We had a marvelous weeks break here the cottage is very tastefully decorated throughout ,roomy, clean ,quiet, very little traffic, Very near to the larger town of Betwsycoed ( about 4 miles) but you wouldn't know it you feel delightfully cut of from the hustle and bustle of the modern world.Penmachno has just the one pub,thats all you need.
Great walks and fabulous scenery ,we had the bonus of sunny weather too.
If you choose to stay here you will be very blessed to stay in such a cosy cottage in a beautiful part of the country.
We have stayed here several times over the past few years and always look forward to returning.It is truly therapeutic.
It is a charming cottage with all amenities. A real get away from it all place.
Anne and Colin live nearby and are always around if you need anything.
Thank you Anne and Colin for making our stay so enjoyable.
We look forward to returning soon,
Bernadette Christopher and Sutton xx
What a lovely cottage and such lovely owners !
The location is great within walking distance to the local pub which serves food at the weekends and also only a short drive away to the silver fountain which serves the best food ( vegan and vegetarian options available ) ! Also great if your planning Snowdon or the local bike tracks !
The cottage has everything that you need and more ! Lovely log burner and bath and shower !
I can't wait to book my next visit xxxx
What a great place. Came here to bring in the new year nice and relaxed and was no better place to do this. Amazing scenery and cosy cottage. Will absolutely be back in the near future
The cottage is in the small village of Penmachno about 5 minutes from the A5 just south of Betsy-y-Coed. We have spent a few weekends at the cottage. It is always very clean, tidy and warm. The log burner just adds to the atmosphere. There is good walking opportunities directly from the cottage and it is a short drive to the Snowdonia hills and mountains. The owners are friendly, helpful and welcoming.
