Gwynfryn is a 3- storey self catering cottage full of character set within the walls of the medieval town of Conwy, sleeps 4 – 6 and has fantastic views across the town of Conwy to the castle and also to the Snowdonian mountain range. The cottage is set in a great location, within minutes walk of the town, and set back from the main roads. The cottage has a private garden laid to patio which catches the sun most of the day.

The accommodation comprises a large open plan kitchen, dining area and sitting room with log burning stove, TV/DVD, radio & CD.

Historic harbour, golf, beaches, tennis, fishing, hill & coastal walks within easy reach.

Local attractions: There is plenty to do and see in Conwy itself and due to its central position a car is not essential when staying in Gwynfryn. The Royal Cambrian art gallery is seconds from the cottage, as is Plas Mawr, the “Great Hall”, which is the finest surviving town house of the Elizabethan era to be found anywhere in Britain. There is Conwy Castle constructed by Edward 1 between 1283 and 1289 with 8 huge round towers and soaring curtain walls. The town is guarded by the town walls which stretch over three quarters of a mile and have 22 towers. Also within the town is the National Trust's ancient Aberconwy House, Britain’s smallest house and the newly refurbished quay side.For those who enjoy walking there is the Marine walk, which can take you round to the marina and beaches, Bodlondeb woods, Conwy Mountain where you can walk as far as you want, enjoy spectacular coastal views and see Welsh wild ponies, or a shoreline path walk to Deganwy, Llandudno and the Great Orme.

Other activities & places of interest: Also close by are Conwy golf Club, Llandudno Golf Club & North Wales Golf Club, public tennis courts 5 minutes walk away, Aberconwy beach and The Langley Spa where spa treatments and hair dressing is available to non – members.

The property: Gwynfryn is approached through a private courtyard, set back from the main road. The patio catches the sun for most of the day. The cottage is not accessible for wheel chairs and due to the two flights of stairs would not be suitable for those unable to use them. The patio is a great sun trap for most of the day and there is a large table and parasol with 6 chairs.

Lovely Cottage in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a really lovely stay in this cottage, which was clean, welcoming and had everything we could possibly need, including welcoming bottle of wine and flowers! There were amazing views of the castle from the top floor window. We had some enjoyable days visiting the Swallow Falls in Betswy Coed and climbing up the Great Orme to visit the mines in Llandudno. I would highly recommend this cottage, especially its location in the heart of Conwy with all its character

Perfect holiday cottage for the area

  • 4 of 5

The photo's dont do it justice, its a lovely little place in the heart of Conway town. We really enjoyed our stay here despite the weather being a bit rainy. The cottage is warm and cosy with a very well stocked kitchen. Lots of games for the kids, sun chairs and table for outside and logs for the fire. The restaurants in the area are lovely, especially Watsons Bistro round the corner and The Raj on the high street. We used the bus service to get to LLandudno to save losing the car parking space and also to have a beer ! Great time had by all, Thanks Claire and Rob.
