Gwynfryn is a 3- storey self catering cottage full of character set within the walls of the medieval town of Conwy, sleeps 4 – 6 and has fantastic views across the town of Conwy to the castle and also to the Snowdonian mountain range. The cottage is set in a great location, within minutes walk of the town, and set back from the main roads. The cottage has a private garden laid to patio which catches the sun most of the day.

The accommodation comprises a large open plan kitchen, dining area and sitting room with log burning stove, TV/DVD, radio & CD. There is a downstairs toilet & utility area, where the heating boiler is situated. On the first floor there is a double bedroom, a twin bedroom with bunk beds and a bathroom. Leading from this hallway is a staircase up to the top room which has fantastic views across Conwy. This room has a double futon so it can be used as a sitting room or bedroom. Historic harbour, golf, beaches, tennis, fishing, hill & coastal walks within easy reach.

Local attractions: There is plenty to do and see in Conwy itself and due to its central position a car is not essential when staying in Gwynfryn. The Royal Cambrian art gallery is seconds from the cottage, as is Plas Mawr, the “Great Hall”, which is the finest surviving town house of the Elizabethan era to be found anywhere in Britain. There is Conwy Castle constructed by Edward 1 between 1283 and 1289 with 8 huge round towers and soaring curtain walls. The town is guarded by the town walls which stretch over three quarters of a mile and have 22 towers. Also within the town is the National Trust's ancient Aberconwy House, Britain’s smallest house and the newly refurbished quay side.For those who enjoy walking there is the Marine walk, which can take you round to the marina and beaches, Bodlondeb woods, Conwy Mountain where you can walk as far as you want, enjoy spectacular coastal views and see Welsh wild ponies, or a shoreline path walk to Deganwy, Llandudno and the Great Orme.

Other activities & places of interest: Also close by are Conwy golf Club, Llandudno Golf Club & North Wales Golf Club, public tennis courts 5 minutes walk away, Aberconwy beach and The Langley Spa where spa treatments and hair dressing is available to non – members. Within walking distance is a 24 hour Tesco supermarket, Cineworld, MacDonalds, Pizzaland and KFC.There is a regular bus service to the picturesque Victorian seaside resort town of Llandudno (5 mins drive), which hosts North Wales' top theatre 'Venue Cymru', has wonderful wide ornate canopied shopping streets and modern shopping mals, boutiques, restaurants, beautiful promenade and beaches, a brand new swimming pool complex, a dry ski slope, toboggan run, Bronze-age copper mines,historic tramway, Victorian pier and cable-car lift on the Great Orme headland .The National Trust's Bodnant Gardens is about 15mins drive and there is a train station in Conwy and Llandudno Junction from where you can easily travel to Chester, Manchester, London or Dublin in Ireland.

The property: Gwynfryn is approached through a private courtyard, set back from the main road. The patio catches the sun for most of the day. The cottage is not accessible for wheel chairs and due to the two flights of stairs would not be suitable for those unable to use them. The patio is a great sun trap for most of the day and there is a large table and parasol with 6 chairs.

Perfect holiday cottage for the area

  • 4 of 5

The photo's dont do it justice, its a lovely little place in the heart of Conway town. We really enjoyed our stay here despite the weather being a bit rainy. The cottage is warm and cosy with a very well stocked kitchen. Lots of games for the kids, sun chairs and table for outside and logs for the fire. The restaurants in the area are lovely, especially Watsons Bistro round the corner and The Raj on the high street. We used the bus service to get to LLandudno to save losing the car parking space and also to have a beer ! Great time had by all, Thanks Claire and Rob.

Fabulous fabulous fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Just returned after a 4 day break & I want to go straight back.

fabulous cottage in a great location, great views, everything you need is in this cottage. The photos don't do it justice it was much much nicer when I walked in. Very reasonably priced too. Exceptionally clean. We stayed in the top room over looking Conwy castle & mountains to the left, what more do you need. Futon bed wasn't expecting too much but was very comfy. & it's so lovely & bright up there.

Know Conwy very well, was really disappointed to see The Liverpool Arms on the Quay had closed down however we heard it's been bought again & will soon re open phew! Also George & Dragon closed for refurbishment! But opening tomorrow Friday 24th July, so just have to go back.

pubs were dog friendly too. The Albion actually having a dogs menu!

Can recommend the Alfredos Italian Restaurant very nice meal. PLas Mawr is also very good. & The castle worth going too, get a joint ticket & Save money.

Just a little pointer in case someone makes the same mistake I did when following the instructions for cottage the white gates with nos 19 private on are wooden & WALK thru! Not to drive thru! So park up in Chapel Street if you can, we managed to get very nearby & left it there.

The only thing I would have like is wifi! But it definately didn't spoil our holiday! Can't wait to book here again. Claire the owner great communication & very accommodating, lovely Flowers & wine on arrival just great.

Comfortable and Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Claire for being so accommodating with the dates we required as we arrived on the Sunday and left Tuesday. We stayed as a surprise to other family members staying down the road.

The cottage is very well positioned in the town and hidden of any roads. The cottage was very clean, tidy and very well equipt with everything you could possible require for your stay. Comprises of 3 bedrooms with the best room of the cottage being on the top floor with fantastic views of the castle and harbour.

There was only myself, husband and dog and we would definitely stay here again. I would also recommend it to others.

Thank you again Claire for a lovely stay.
