About Lance Scally

The above picture is of the family enjoying a Carribbean evening at the Gladstone last summer.

Plas Arfon Cottage is a family owned rental and part of our family business. The other parts are The Gladstone, our AA 4 star bar/restaurant/boutique hotel with 6 letting rooms, next door to the cottage and The Castle View in Deganwy. This is an award winning bar/restaurant serving traditional & modern food. We have lived in and around North Wales all our lives and have been in the hospitality industry for as long as we can remember. All the children grew up in the industry and as yet can't see that would change. (until the old man retires that is!)

Lance Scally purchased this house in 2000

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all really enjoyed our stay in the cottage. The views were the best we have probably had when we have been on holiday anywhere in the UK. It was a pleasure to eat at the dining table and to look out to the sea.

We ate at The Gladstone on Steak night and the food was excellent, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to people in the area.

As far as the cottage goes, there was everything in there that you could need and more than enough space to accommodate four adults and two young children. The fact that the rear garden was enclosed and secure meant that the children could go outside and we had peace of mind.

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great base for exploring North Wales

  • 4 of 5

We found the cottage very easily, the directions given by Lance were excellent.

The cottage was comfortable, very spacious, clean and well equipped. We thought that the pub car park and the closeness of the A55 may have disturbed us but we need not have worried about it, although we were a little surprised that the cottage didn't have a hairdryer. The staff at the Gladstone did look for a spare but unfortunately we ended up having to buy one.

The location of the cottage is excellent. We visited Conwy and Caernarfon castles, Llandudno, Anglesey, Llanberis ( for Snowdonia ) and Bodnant Gardens all within easy reach. We went to the summit of Snowdonia by train and would recommend using the Heritage Train rather than the other train - much more comfortable.

We ate in the Gladstone once and the food and service were very good. The staff at the Gladstone who are the first stop if you have a problem were friendly and very helpful.

We ate at the Village Bistro one evening which is a pleasant 20 min walk into Penmaenmawr. The food and service again were very good.

A very memorable holiday altogether.

Spent a fabulous long weekend break at Plas Arfon. The house is beautiful, amazing views, and great facilities. Really child friendly with a secure garden, high chair, travel cot and stair gate all provided. Fantastic pub with great ale and good food next door. Close to all local attractions, couldn't have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5

Ths is our second visit to this lovley holiday home, which has most home comforts anyone could ask for on a holiday. The view of the sunset from the upstairs balcony is gorgeous . There are loads of places to visit locally. We enjoyed our trips to Comwy Castle, Llandudno, The mountain zoo & Penrhyn Castle which are all within a 20 minute drive. We have booked to return again next year and we are

looking forward to our stay in Plas Arfon & fininding other intesrering place to visit.
