About Lance Scally

The above picture is of the family enjoying a Caribbean evening at the Gladstone.

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.Also the Liverpool Arms, directly on the waterfront in Conwy old town is a recent addition to the portfolio. This traditional old world tavern is the oldest and smallest pub in Conwy. Well worth a visit, after an enjoyable day's sightseeing or shopping, relax whilst taking in the river views from the outside seating area.

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 2007

Why Lance Scally chose Dwygyfylchi

We purchased this property some 10 years ago to compliment our bar restaurant business next door and to take advantage of the amazing location. We spent the next 2 years converting it into a stylish 3 bedroom house with every modern convenience for visitors to enjoy.

We have found that our cottage guests enjoy having a bar and restaurant near to site and they take advantage of the facilities of the Gladstone.

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.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 3 nights over new year.

Lovely cottage. Spacious. Nice little garden.

Obviously cold when we were there but it would be lovely in the summertime. Next to the Gladstone pub - staff friendly and the food good.

Ideally situated for Conway and surrounding area.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The property is very well equipped and the beds are very comfortable. The property is clean and perfect for a family and anyone with dogs as the garden is secure. The Gladstone is a lovely pub very welcoming and the food was excellent. It would be nice to see some vegan choices on the menu please in the future.

Beautiful modern home in a lovely location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a short break at this home in North Wales. It is a lovely place to stay where you can either drive to the beautiful locations of North Wales or take a lovely long walk directly from the home. It is in a beautiful area. The owners also have the pub next door to the house and Adele is lovely and makes you feel quite a home, including our dog. I can't fault anything, from the booking to the holiday itself, to the venue. Thanks for everything.

Great location and exactly as described.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a 4 night break in November, plenty of space for 5 adults and pet dog. Downstairs open plan mainly and plenty of seating areas in kitchen, dining & living rooms. Kitchen is fully stocked and has all mod cons including wine coolers which we made use of! The two main bedrooms are lovely and have great sea views, the upstairs bathroom is small with a slanted roof so a little tricky in the shower but overall adequate for us. The garden area is enclosed and has plenty of seating as well so in the warmer months would be ideal for families. Overall we could not fault this property nor the staff at the Gladstone, thanks everybody for all your help and service, hoping to return in 2018.
