Make a holiday rental home or holiday cottage in Conwy, Wales your home away from home

Conwy (Conway) is a market town on the north coast of Wales. It faces Deganwy across the River Conwy. In the past the town has been in the council district of Gwynedd and Caernarvonshire. Conwy is famous for its medieval castle and for this reason is a popular tourist destination. Stunning views over Snowdonia and the harbour form the backdrop to this designated World Heritage Site and walled town.

Places to holiday in Conwy

King Edward 1 built the walled town and the adjoining castle in the 13th century at the mouth of the River Conwy. Conwy is in Conwy County Council local government district, which extends from Lanfairfechan and Penmaenmawr in the west to Colwyn Bay, Abergele and Kimnel Bay in the east, Llandudno to Llanrwst, Bodnant, Coed, Betws y Coed, Dolwyddelan and Capel Curig. The Snowdonia National Park extends until it reaches Lanfairfechan between Conwy and Bangor.

For many visitors the deciding factor is that some welsh cottages allow you to bring your pet dog.

                                                            Myself and my partner have just returned from a stay in this lovely little cottage and i have to say, we were very impressed. It was perfect for the two of us and our little dog. It's sweet and cosy. It has all the essentials, the little fire heater is perfect for when it gets a little chilly. The only recommendation i would have to anyone staying at the cottage is make sure you are a pro at hill starts! The cottage is located on quite a steep hill and we had someone park extremely close to us almost every day (we can only assume they were staying next door) so one slight roll backwards and we would have hit them. Not ideal when parking on a hill but that's idiot drivers for you. The cottage is located perfectly, in a place called Conwy, which took our breath away. There is a little town with shops, bakeries, pubs and restaurants and the best part was most of them were dog friendly. There are parks and walks everywhere, including the Conwy harbor. There is also lots to do within a 10-30 minute drive. If you are taking your dog with you, don't worry as everywhere we went was dog friendly. We couldn't have picked a better spot to stay. One place we would highly recommend is Llandudno Pier which is about a 20 minute drive, close by is the Great Orme tramway at LL30 2NB, its a must do! Also, if you want a challenge, make sure you give climbing Snowdon a go, we managed it all the way to the top and back down again, but its certainly not for the faint hearted! Overall, yes we would stay here again and yes we would recommend it!

                                                            Had a fantastic four night stay at Bron y Graig, the house was very clean, tidy and comfortable. There was six adults and two little ones, we all had pleanty of room in the property. It's also in a really great location to Conwy center. We would happily visit and stay at Bron Y Graig again.
