About the property

The Hughes family from Staffordshire gave us this review after a weeks holiday in April 2017. We thought it a super way to introduce you to the cottage.

" The cottage is a gem of a holiday retreat. It is clean, tidy, well appointed and comfortable. The bedrooms are spacious and cosy and the living area is great to relax in after a days walking. The kitchen is well equipped and the two bathrooms are spacious. There was plenty of hot water and the walk in shower was powerful, clean and left us relaxed and fresh after the day. The washing machine and drying facilities provided for outdoor drying was also appreciated. The cottage is on the lower slopes of the Orme and as we have three young boys it was a safe haven for them to go out on the rocks at sunset climbing in their onesies and playing whilst we watched them with a breathtaking view over the bay and the mountains. We even had the Great Orme goats grazing outside our back door one morning which was a lovely sIght when sitting with a coffee in the back yard!

The Great Orme is on your doorstep - literally - with plenty of beautiful and peaceful walks. The beauty of this cottage is that you are already virtually at the Orme's Summit and the walks are less strenuous than when walking from the town. The Great Orme tram was a short walk across a field and provided a 60p trip to and from Llandudno. On occasions we did walk to and from the town also and although the walk is steep - it is not too much of a challenge and was quite enjoyable. There was also an option of walking into town and taking the £2.50 taxi ride back to the cottage also which was well worth the money later on at night. The cottage was also packed with information about local restaurants, take away's offering free delivery to the cottage and things to do in the area, along with simple instructions on how to use the electrical appliances and the central heating. Everything had been thought of to make our holiday as perfect as it could possibly be. On the whole I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone who wants complete comfort, peace and quiet with fantastic views and many beautiful walks on their doorstep. I would give this cottage a 5* anytime and we will be returning. Thanks so much for a lovely holiday."

A big thank you for the glowing report - we couldn't agree more.

Llandudno is a traditional Victorian seaside resort ideal for families and couples. Local attractions are too numerous to name but range from family beaches with donkey rides and a fun pier to the delightful funicular tramway leading to the summit of the Great Orme. Don't forget the dry ski slope and toboggan ride too if family fun is what you're looking for.

Situated on the Orme the cottage is ideally placed for exploring the country park and is just a five minute walk from the halfway station for Llandudno's famous tramway.

This cosy cottage is centally heated and has two bedrooms plus an attic room sleeping a maximum 5. The master bedroom with a king size bed has glorious coastal views while the double bedroom at the rear affords views to the summit of the Orme and the copper mine.There's a single bed in the attic room with velux roof lights allowing views over the town and the bay. Please note that the attic room is accessed via space saving stairs so may not be suitable for those with mobility problems or very young children. Outdoors there is a small courtyard to both front and rear.

The lounge with colour TV and DVD plus a selection of board games also has a 'log effect' electric fire.

The fully equipped dining kitchen has an electric oven, halogen hob, fridge/freezer and microwave with a breakfast area. Also on the ground floor is a utility room with a really useful extra WC and an automatic washing machine.

Upstairs the large wet room has a walk in shower and heated towel rail plus a WC.

The gated front courtyard has a patio table and chairs - ideal for the morning sun. This area is a real sun trap because of the surrounding wall. At the rear is a small courtyard - also with a small patio table and chairs. The gate leads to a grassed seating area with bench and slate table - perfect for the afternoon sun with views towards the halfway tram station and the Orme summit.

A five minute walk from the cottage is the 9 hole pitch and putt course, while the two local golf courses are a few minutes drive. Maesdu is a part links course while North Wales golf club is a full links course.

Llandudno is an ideal base to explore Snowdownia National Park and the adrenaline junkies will be thrilled by the receently opened zip wire world at Blaneau Ffestiniog as well as Surf Snowdownia; the world's first purpose built surf centre.

Sorry - No dogs.

It's our third year of using the internet to advertise the cottage so I've taken a few comments from the visitors guest book to give you a 'flavour' of it's character;

"Lovely cottage in a truly unique setting" Mr & Mrs E Oldbury

"Cottage is very comfortable and we enjoyed the views" Mr & Mrs F Lichfield

"Superb location" Mr & Mrs W Derby

"Enjoyed a relaxing break in your lovely cottage" Mr & Mrs E Chase Terrace

Very nice and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with the accommodation. The main drawback was the position half way up the great OR ME (sorry, predicted text!). At our age it was rather daunting, to say the least. But we managed!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. It's a shame you didn't enjoy the position of the cottage as most people find it to be the main advantage. Perhaps I need to make it even clearer on the advertising(and will be looking at it), but it does state that it is on the slope of the Great Orme. As such, it is very peaceful with walks on the Orme literally on the doorstep with amazing views thrown in too. I hope you had a good holiday.

Really enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

Is a lovely cottage, lovely view. Steep hill but good excercise. Only one complaint key safe to low down and a little awkward to open. Enjoyed out stay.

Owner's Response: Sorry you found the key safe too low. We thought it an ideal place as it makes use of that area and isn't on view. At least you only had to bend a couple of times. Happy you enjoyed your stay.

A great week in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We'll definitely be returning to this beautiful cottage on our next visit to Llandudno. It was wonderful waking up to the fantastic view from the main bedroom each morning and the great weather we had during our visit helped! Sue, the owner, was lovely to deal with and very helpful. Her cottage is comfortable and homely with everything you could need. The information book Sue has at the cottage is also a great help. Lots to do in the Llandudno area! Looking forward to our next visit!

Very nice cottage, lovely holiday

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time at the cottage and the weather was really hot for the first few days. The goats came by on 3 of the days inc settling down in the back garden and staring at the windows !!

We found the best way down to the town was when you get to the bottom of the first set of steps cross to the bus shelter and down the steps at the side, follow the road down to the traffic lights but don't go down the tram road but across to the road you first drive up when you arrive, some way down there are some steps at the side of a hotel that brings you out nearer to the promenade and pier. It's so much easier to walk back up that way if the trams have stopped.

We can't really fault the cottage although it gave me a problem being rather deaf, the remote for the TV is not the original and you can''t select subtitles and on the TV menu you can select the subtitle language but there is no option to turn them on.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write the review and give us the feedback. The information folder kept in the cottage does have a contact number if there are any issues or concerns, it's a shame you didn't phone when you found the problem as we would have tried to resolve the issue over the phone. So glad that you had a good holiday despite the TV remote being a problem for you. We shall look at the problem of the subtitles the next time we are in the cottage and hopefully sort it out....Unfortunately,the TV doesn't have subtitles we later discovered. We do give potential guests the opportunity to raise queries or particular concerns before booking to ensure suitability and we hope it didn't spoil your holiday too much. Without guest's comments we would not be able to improve.

Lovely cottage halfway up the Great Orme

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage on the Great Orme with great views overlooking Llandudno. An excellent place if you like walking as the countryside is outside the back door. We had great fun trying to find the many ways down to the town and both of the beaches. Use of the tram to the halfway station by the property (for 50p as a resident) helps with the steep climb back up. Given how crowded the town gets, its good to find somewhere just a little bit out of the way where there is no problem parking the car. We found Sue the owner most helpful and the property very clean, modern and welcoming. We would certainly recommend this to others and would visit again if only it was not 4.5 hours drive away.
