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.

                                    Lovely flat in an ideal location

                                    5 of 5
                                    Stayed here for a weekend break. The owners Jean and Keith were very friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome when we arrived. Lovely little village to explore with plenty of shops and cafes and the castle all within a few minutes walk from the flat. Close to the station too if you come by train. Would recommend!

                                    Beautiful cottage. Warm clean and comfortable.

                                    The cottage was clean and welcoming when we arrived and scenery amazing. Unfortunately the weather wasn't that kind to us for our week, but it was lovely knowing that we had a beautifully decorated, relaxing, warm, peaceful place to return to each day. And with the Fairy Glen Pub just around the corner we didn't have to go far for a friendly place for a drink and a decent meal (not gourmet, but plenty of it and tasty) We did all the usual visits - Conwy Castle and town, turn right out of the drive and go over Synchant Pass, beautiful, a even on a wet day! LLandundlo - excellent World War 2 Home Front Experience, small but really well done (daughter a War Studies Student so had to go, very impressed) and of course the Tram railway. The cable car wasn't running and when we got to the top of the Great Orme we could tell why. The National Slate Centre at bottom of Snowdon is a must and if feeling energetic the Copper Mine was an experience. We had meals at quite a few of the places recommended by the owners, all very good. The Queens Head really really good, use sat nav to find it, not far away but bit award to locate. Also The Gladstone very good if you want somewhere closer. All in all a really good holiday (despite weather) Thank you to Natalia, Chris and Beatrix and or course Moya the housekeeper.

                                    Perfect cottage in an idyllic location. Excellent facilities and spotlessly clean.

                                    We had a wonderful stay at Plas Arfon cottage and would recommend to anyone. The downstairs bedroom and ensuite were ideal for my elderly mother and the upstairs facilities were excellent with a beautiful view from the verandah. This cottage has a great 'home from home' feel about it, with everything you could possibly need to make an enjoyable stay. If I had one criticism we felt the garden furniture did need replacing as it was well worn and in a fragile state. However this did not in any way spoil our holiday and we could not have hoped for a better place to stay. The staff at The Gladstone pub next door were always friendly and welcoming. Fantastic location for exploring Llandudno, Betws-y-coed and Anglesey. Thank you for all your help and efficiency with our booking. Angela Miller
