The cottage is perfectly situated for walking into Conwy town or visiting different places around Wales. Linda and Mark were brilliant and their cottage is a credit to them. The cottage is very clean and comfortable and the decking outside is a lovely place to sit and read or have a meal. Lovely cottage we would highly recommend to family and friends.

Our dog also had her own well stocked basket, and a comfy bed. There was a comprehensive provision of utensils and laundry equipment in the dining kitchen, and plenty of storage space throughout. The upstairs bedroom suite was amazing with an enormous comfortable double bed, and access to a large balcony with splendid views of The Great Orme and the sea. The dressing room led to the en-suite bathroom. The downstairs bedroom with a double bed, en-suite, and its own access to the lower balcony having steps down to the well maintained garden. The living room had freeview television with a recording facility, DVDs, and a large selection of games and books. There is central heating, and additional heating appliances if they were required. Throughout the property, there are fine furnishings, ornaments and wall pictures. There is off street parking for two cars, and a regular bus service to Llandudno, Conway and further afield.

Fantastic views across to Anglesey, Puffin Island and Great Orme. An excellent location with Conwy, Caernarfon, Llanberis, Llandudno, Bangor, Beaumaris and Snowdonia within easy reach. Llanfairfechan itself is small and quiet but has everything you need - a reasonably sized Coop, Indian & Chinese takeaways, fish and chip shop, ice cream parlour, cash machine, small parks and promenade walks. We enjoyed a great holiday; the apartment felt like a home from home.
