“Beautiful cottage, a real rare gem.”
Reviewed August 8, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I could not believe how beautiful this cottage is, it is much larger than the pictures hint at, the pictures really do not do it justice. A real rare gem tucked away from the road hidden by the trees. Just a short walk from the Little Orm and Llandudno beach, with many other places to visit within easy reach.

The cottage is tucked away almost invisibly and yet very convenient for Llandudno itself and walking on both Ormes. Hard floors downstairs make for a worry-free stay with dogs, without the need to hover with a towel every time they go outside. The layout worked very well for us, with a lovely bright garden room for meals and a cosy lounge for evenings. French doors in the master bedroom made morning coffee a bit special. It was also nice not to be faced with a barrage of rules from a booking agent and on arrival. To sum it up in a word: relaxed.

Hi Marian, thank you for your comments. I think you pinpointed exactly what I'm
hoping to provide at the cottage, and that is a relaxed atmoshphere. It really is a little haven and I'm glad you appreciated it for what it is. Best wishes

“Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed March 13, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

What a wonderful surprise we had when we arrived at the cottage, the style, location, facilities and character of the place are excellent. It has everything you require for a home from home type stay in terms of equipment and appliances.We particularly liked the underflloor heating and the AGA cooker, which for a complete novice was very easy to use and produced some wonderfuil meals and kept the kitchen warm and cosy.
The gardens are definately worth exploring and are full of a variety of plants and trees and attract many different types of birds and wildlife.
Although secluded and private it is only a little over half a mile to the beach which we enjoyed immensly as did our dogs.
All in all it is a very special place and we would certainly have no hesitation in recommending it very highly

Thank you for your review. I am so pleased you continue to come back and even extended your original stay until the next guests were due to arrive. Thank you for
leaving the cottage as you found it and replacing the wine glasses over and above the "one" that was broken!
Best wishes

“Fantastic cottage”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

person found this review helpful

Have just returned from a lovely New Year break with friends at this cottage. The place is in immaculate condition and retains the rustic feel you'd expect from a cottage such as this.

We were greeted on arrival by the host Tracy, which you receive at very few properties, and she gave us a tour of the property including how to use the AGA cooker which we had not seen before. This was very beneficial and we managed to make the most of it in the 3 days we were there. Amazing piece of kit!

The views are spectacular looking on to the cliff face out the back and the location excellent for exploring the North Coast of Wales. Please ignore the 1 star review below as it is nowhere near this level of class and pay attention to the 4 & 5 star reviews as this is a lot closer to where it should be. Thanks for a beautiful stay Tracy and hope to see you again soon!

“EXCELLENT COTTAGE, QUIET LOCATION YET CLOSE TO THE CENTRE OF LLANDUDNO”
Reviewed November 10, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I normally forget to leave reviews for the holiday lets I rent for my holidays, but as we were planning to rent this cottage again next year I looked on Tripadvisor to remind myself what a fantastic time we had there in September ( call it nostalgia ). Having already stayed there once, I was utterly bemused to read that one person only gave it one star - perhaps it rained all week?. We found the cottage brilliant for all our needs. We were a small group of walkers, so we were close to the mountains and Snowdonia, yet within walking distance of the centre of Llandudno ( one of our favourite destinations ). The cottage is in an ideal, quiet spot, with nice gardens and plenty of character. It was clean and bright and the owner Mrs Newell did all she could to make our stay so memorable, even when one of our party was slightly injured on a walk. We booked this cottage after recommendations from friends who had stayed here previously. We will certainly be contacting her again very soon to arrange another stay, as this year we had difficulty getting the cottage for the week we wanted due to its popularity. M.Mclean

“terrible not as advertised”

This cottage is the worst I have rented. The plates, mugs and cooking dishes were chipped and cracked. The furniture was dirty, and not as advertised. They was no outside games or tramopline as descrided or as pictured. The place was dark and smelled musty, we came home early. They were no cleaning facilites, the bins were full. the beds were obviously old and worn out. Even the light fittings were broken. I have taken pictures and will report this setting to the tourist board. I texted the owner re no trampoline as my two girls were very upset and did not recieve a reply, until I complained on returning home. The reply was it was damaged and we did not replace it. We should have been told before accepting the booking. I was glad to leave.
