“Fab cottage”
Reviewed 25 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

I visit snowdonia often and I would recommend this cottage to everyone. . It's a fab cottage. .. in a fab location. .. with a fab host... it has everything you need it's like a home away from home.. and the little touches that anne does are just what you need after a hard day hiking or shopping or sight seeing. It's perfect for all. I wI'll be staying there again and I would recommend to all to stay. The log burners are fantastic to come back to and relax in front of. Beautiful cottage in a stunning location in the best place I Wales.

“Fantastic cosey cottage”
Reviewed 23 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Had another amazing stay here again. Nice and warm despite very cold weather outside. We had the log burner going on the evening just for that extra bit of heat and it the cottage feel that extra bit special.
Booked again for the summer. Would have no hesitation recommending this cottage any time of the year.
Thanks again to Anne and Colin for a fantastic week away.

“Perfect Location”
Reviewed 27 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

person found this review helpful

We have just come back from our extended weekend in North Wales and our stay at Bryn Awel Penmachno, Conwy. We had a lovely time and it was especially nice as this is the first time since we were children that my sister and i went away on a break together. Bryn Awel is a lovely cottage with everything you could possibly need provided by the owner, who very kindly left us a bottle of wine, biscuits and Welsh teacakes on our arrival. The cottage is clean and tidy, lovely bedlinen and towels provided. The location is ideal for visiting Betws y Coed where there are numerous places to dine or heading further afield like llangollen and the Ponctysylite Aqueduct and Canal. Beddgelert is also well worth a visit and if you fancy a cream tea then do head for the Tearooms in Llanrwst. We would certainly make a return visit to Bryn Awel where at night time you will clearly hear the owls calling to each other. We would also recommend the cottage and area to our friends.

“Wonderful base for exploring”
Reviewed 10 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Not our first visit to 'the cottage', and definitely won't be our last!
In the past we've visited Portmeirion and Betws y Coed, but this time we ventured north to Llandudno. It's surprisingly close and well worth the trip.
The welcome gift of milk, butter, welsh cakes and Bara Brith was a wonderful sight.
Roll on next time.

“Lovely little cottage”
Reviewed 8 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

ME and my sister's had a lovely time staying in the cottage, the views where amazing, thanks for letting us stay, the town was beautiful, the only downfall was no WiFi but we bought some for our stay so it wasn't to much of a problem thanks again for letting us stay.

Thanks so much for your review, we are pleased that you had a good time.
We are sorry that you found not having WiFi in the cottage a short-coming, however, it does state in our property details which can be seen prior to booking that there is no WiFi.
For reference for future guests: the local pub and cafes in Penmachno and most of the pubs, hotels and restaurants in Betws y Coed offer free Wifi access so this can be used when out and about.
There is apatchy mobile phone signal in the village and none in the cottage itself, due to the 18" thick stone walls.
Various phone providers are looking at placing a mobile phone mast to cover Penmachno but this is a remote upland village in the depths of Snowdonia and for many it is the escape from the hustle and bustle that appeals.
There is a public phone box for emergency calls located opposite the cottage.
Kind regards.
Anne and Colin.
