                                                                                                      5 of 5

It is modern and has everything one needs for a fulfilling stay in the lovely North Wales village of Conwy. The kitchen is really well done, living room has a nice big tv, music and Blu-ray player and wood burner for those chilly Welsh winters. Parking is for residents only (permit available for those who are staying in the cottage) and we didn’t have any trouble getting a space (although it is tight there shouldn’t be any issues for anyone). The village is a very short walk away and is filled with cafes, restaurants and pubs. Travelling to areas of interest is simple (e.g. Bangor, Llandudno, Anglesey, Snowdonia and Caernarfon) we drove to all these areas however there seems to be regular buses and trains to all. Conwy train station is about 5 mins walk and llandudno junction station about 25-30 mins. In summary I have too many platitudes for Mark and Linda’s cottage, I would happily stay again and have recommended my parents stay here.
