Great accommodations for the whole family
The property was very good, everything we needed for 6 was there. Len was very helpful for our arrival since we were late. Nearby attractions ( castles) , kept us busy and we had a very relaxing place at the end of the day. Recommend this place to anyone's looking for a relaxing and spacious home.
Thank you for your kind comments. Regards Len.
6 people, 3 generations and a little dog
First time in Wales and really enjoyed our stay. Close to all North Wales has to offer, including the lovely town of Llanrwst with local shops restaurants and welcoming public houses. The booking process was easy and Len most helpful, and we hope to come to Wales again in the near future.
Thank you for the review and leaving the house so clean and tidy, hope to see you again. Regards Len .
Pet Friendly Snowdonia Getaway
Great place close to lots of amazing outdoor adventures. Cute town.
House is as advertised. Great spot for 7 of us (4 adults, 3 kids) plus two dogs to use for all Snowdonia has to offer.
Len (the owner) is very receptive and helpful. He even had a great recommendation for us when our tyre was flat after a long road trip to Wales.
We would definitely stay there again.
Thanks for the review, I thought me waiting up to see you in at 11.45 p.m. and seeing you off at 7.30 a.m. might have got a mention, but the tyre garage is very good. Hope to see you again if you visit the area again. Regards Len and Jan.
Central location in Northern Wales
The location of this house is great. It is within walking distance to the town and driving distance to many attractions in northern Wales. The host, Len, was very responsive and gave great recommendations and directions.
We were a large group and managed with the one shower (but 3 bathrooms); Len is planning to put in another shower this fall which will be helpful for other larger groups in the future.
We are grateful the carpets had been cleaned but as a result there was a strong residual odor. We would have preferred other flooring than carpet in the bathrooms and kitchen. The living room furniture is tired but the beds are comfy.
There is not any carpet in the kitchen, it is a Rhino Kitchen Floor covering, two out of three bathrooms have a carpet tile flooring, and whats wrong with nice warm carpet in the master bathroom ? How can a £3000 oak framed "Erco" three piece suite be "tired" it must be you are not used to a tapestry type cover and it may have looked faded, it is not that is how it is new ! The odor from the washed carpets did clear in a day or two, I will change the type of carpet cleaner used from "Summer Fresh" to another brand, I clearly state there is one shower, and one bath, how can you comment about something which is clearly not supplied. As you are from Texas you have clearly never walked on a freezing tiled floor in a kitchen or bathroom in the winter, if you had you would know why we in the U.K.often use a floor covering. Regards Len and Jan Lloyd.
Comfortable home in a lovely little village
We stayed at Len and Jan's home in Llanrwst for two months starting in November 2014 and had an absolutely brilliant time. The house had everything we needed and plenty of space for our family with three kids. We were even able to receive some family visitors with space to spare—the house really opened up nicely and we were comfortable throughout.
The property is impossible to describe with the Gwydir forest, Conwy River, and the Snowdonia mountains, all looming just outside the backyard. Closer to the back fence, the daily meandering of sheep, bleating and munching grass (rain or shine), was incredibly peaceful. The grey weather outside never affected us indoors, as the central heat and little fireplace in the living room were more than enough to keep the cold away.
Day trips to Llandudno, Conwy, Betws-y-Coed, Porthmadog, Bangor, and Caernarfon are all extremely easy from the property. Even a nice walk to Betws-y-Coed (about 4 miles) or Trefriw (about 2 miles) is easy from this well-positioned property. And even in two months without a car, we barely scratched the surface of the amazing, gorgeous walks in the North Wales area.
As for Len and Jan, they were incredibly accommodating for our family. From bringing their welsh spaniel to come play with my young children to finding a coffee pot for us Americans accustomed to morning coffee to giving us a ride to the train station when it was time for us to leave, they met every need and then some. We couldn't have asked for better hosts.
It's off the beaten path, but you couldn't do better than spending some time in this peaceful, lovely area. And this is the house in which to do it—you just might love it as much as we did!
Lovely, Quiet, Spacious Home in a Great Location
This large home in Llanrwst was perfect for our visit to Snowdonia and
Northern Wales. Our hosts Jan and Len were friendly, helpful, and easy
to work with. Emailing information was simple and much appreciated.
The home has a lovely large kitchen and a spacious living area. Nice
bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs. Plenty of closet space. Big back yard. Great location for exploring the area and Snowdonia National Park. Easy walk into Llanrwst and pubs, restaurants, and the computers to check email at the library. The nearby Trefriw Woolen Mills with its lovely large shop, museum, and inexpensive café is a real treat. Castles at Conwy and Caernarfon are amazing, as is the drive from Betws-y-Coed
to Llanberis - beautiful scenery! The Honey Shop at Llanberis is delightful. From Llanberis we drove on to Caernarfon, Criccieth, Porthmadog, Blaenau Ffestiniog, and back to Betws-y-Coed, and back home to llanwrst - a wonderful drive. Friendly people everywhere. This home is a bargain! Thanks Jan and Len! Andy and Ann from San Antonio, Texas, USA

DOG OWNERS / WALKERS- There are miles and miles of well marked paths in the Gwydir Forest which is a matter of a few minutes drive from the house, you can park your car in a well designed and safe car park and 'get lost' for hours, see if you can get as far as the lakes ! There are also many other areas inland, and beaches to explore with your canine friend and a very nice river side walk in Llanrwst .Or you can give them a good run in the local Gwydir park, five minutes walk from the house towards the town left over the bridge then on the left hand side. It might be wise to invest in an O S. map as there are footpaths everywhere and most are well marked, plan a day before you arrive. There is also a very nice stone 'beach' just up - river from the Gwydir Park, great for dog swimming, and some fields further on to dry it out. The rental rate includes one well behaved dog, most dogs are accepted if you have any further questions, please ask.- SNOWDON- The ultimate walk ! Park the car in the car park at the foot of Snowdon and off you go, you will be best to reserch your route 'on line' before you go, but please no flip - flops, shorts and tee shirts. It can be summer in the car park and winter at the summit ! Do not forget if you get a bit tired you can always come down on the train (check to make sure it is running, it is tourist related).
