Superb property in a very attractive location.
Excellent in all respects. We were a family of 7 adults, 2 children 2 teenagers and a dog, enjoyed by all. Very well equipped, lovely large garden.
Y Gorlan is a beautiful property in a small and friendly town of Rowen in the Snowdon National Park area. The house is self contained and we got a magnificent host in Annette. If we get a chance we will definitely come back again and highly recommend this for friends or families looking for a nice quiet trip to Northern Wales with beautiful views and walking paths all around you and a cute Pub right next door!
All 4 couple enjoyed our stay here greatly and will return.
Beautiful location and great to have lovely gardens too. Pub at the end was a great addition.
Perfect for us to have 4 double bedrooms although the triple bedroom is a little on the snug side!
Everything you need for a perfect weekend away.
Home away from home
The advice and guidance given to us by Annette before hand was incredibly useful. We explored places we would never have found without this. Aber Falls, the local walks through fields, Conwy Castle, and climbed Snowdon on the miners' track. Such an incredible week - we have truly started the year in the very best way.
a great house for a few days in the hills
we stayed at y gorlan for 3 nights with a few family members there were 10 of us and the house was ample in size and in accesories. There were ensuites to every room which was a big plus and the location is perfect just 10 mins to conwy and great for walks of all levels around the house. The 2 bikes that were provided by the host was also great and had some lovely bbq is the huge rear garden . Would definitely come back again!!
Perfect for a family get together
The house was set in a lovely rural village with wrap around gardens that both dogs absolutely loved! It was tastefully furnished and very clean with a generous yummy welcome pack. Annette and Peter were extremely helpful and clearly love being hosts.
