We moved to North Wales in 2007 with my wife, three children and our pet Labrador, Max. We live in Llandudno in a beautiful family home which has taken six years to renovate. Before we moved here we spent a lot of time either holidaying in the area and eventually purchased the Cottage in 2004. We used it as a family holiday home until we moved here permanently.
Michael Clair purchased this cottage in 2004
We bought this property for its location. After having static caravans for a number of years in North Wales, we fell in love with the area and we decided a permanent base was necessary. The cottage location allowed us to relax and wind down after a long week at work, the scenery and clean air was ideal for us as we used to live in a large town. We could finally escape the rat race.
The main benefit for us was it's rural location, we found that we could enjoy the tranquillity of the countryside whilst being in the vicinity of the local towns which was ideal as we had three young children. Close by is Conwy Water Gardens offering fishing lakes, pancake house / restaurant, reptile house, ottos and abundance of wild life. In the village of Rowen is the Tygwyn Pub, perfect now our kids are older!
We stayed in October 2016, loved the cottage it is in a lovely peaceful area hidden behind the Conwy Water Gardens and Dutch Pancake House. Amazing views from the Conservatory/Back Garden. Loved the open coal fire my husband felt at home as we have a log burning stove at home. The cottage was lovely and clean and the kitchen very well equipped, I actually brought a few of my kitchen pans and cooking utensils as wasn't sure what would be there but didn't have to take them out of the car. Loved the short walk to the Water gardens and the little Nature Trail. We also loved the Dutch Pancake house well worth a visit. We hope to book the cottage again next year or 2018. Owners easily contactable for any queries too. Thanks for letting us use your cottage we loved our stay. Julie, Peter, Maddison and Little Gizmo the dog.
A lovely homely place with stunning views . A great base to explore Snowdonia national park and surrounding areas .
The cottage was cosy and homely. The views from the conservatory are breath taking even our 6 and 4 year olds commented ! They kids really appreciated the hospitality of chocolates ( we enjoyed the wine) lovely touch Mike and Tina.
We loved the water park the otters and capybara were the kids favourites (free entertainment) . There are so many species of wild birds that come to feed from the feeding table in the decked area and also the local chickens too.
The cottage is so quiet and suited us down to the ground, our young cocker spaniel is only just recovering after all the walking lol.
We loved the Castle town of Conwy and Llandudno's pier and beach. The locals are very friendly and there are some places to eat out that are dog friendly .
We will be rebooking for next year
We can highly recommend this cottage holiday.
Sycamore cottage is a truly lovely base for exploring North Wales. The cottage is clean, well equipped and has a great conservatory with stunning views (the best room in the cottage for me) with plenty of room to dine or relax away from the television. The two main bedrooms are large and the beds very comfortable. The bedroom with the "half door" is OK for children (and dogs!) to access but less so for adults. However, we knew about this smaller door from the cottage details so not a surprise/problem, apart from the occupant having to use one of the two en suite bathrooms at night (which caused some consternation). The welcome pack was much appreciated, and Mike and Tina were great at answering any queries. Parking is also very good, which is a real bonus for those of us who have had problems in other holiday lets! We had two meals in the nearby pub...both excellent and with the added bonus of being dog friendly.Booking in advance is a must. There is a large supermarket in Conway for those nights when you want to eat in. Plenty of lovely walks of differing degrees of difficulty start in the village and there is fishing on site. The menfolk were a bit disappointed that only two out of the three lakes were "fishable", but they kept going back so they clearly coped! I would return to Sycamore Cottage in the future (but probably with no more than 4 adults), and I would heartily recommend it to my friends and family.
Lovely cottage enhanced by the views from the back of the property.
We enjoyed our holiday very much, the wonderful weather had a great influence in this. The cottage has the benefit of being surrounded by views of lovely countryside, especially from the conservatory at the back of the property.
It is situated perfectly for visiting the many areas that make this part of Wales so well worth exploring. The local hostelry in Rowen is highly recommended, both for the welcome given and for the food provided.
The cottage is well furnished and equipped. There are just two small criticisms, firstly the fridge was heavily iced up, which restricted the storage space available. And probably increases the amount of electricity needed to power it. Secondly, the fact that towels are not provided, is, I feel not shown prominently enough on the information given. In fact the word "towels" is not even used.
fishing - 3 well stocked fishing ponds adjacent to cottage (extra charge) Coast/Beach:
Conwy beach & marina 4 miles 10 minutes drive away. Llandudno beaches 8 miles 20 minutes drive away
Liverpool & Manchester are the nearest international airports
Rowen village 0.5 mile. Conwy 4 miles. Llandudno 8 miles. Betws-Y-Coed 16 miles
Rowen is the nearest village and includes a Post Office & country pub which serves traditional ales and great food. Conwy is a small medieval walled town situated on the river Conwy with variety of shops, restaurants, pubs, bakery, small supermarket, 16th century castle & harbour. Llandudno is a very popular Victorian seaside town, with a great pier, theatre, shops and retail park with high street brands. Wales highest mountain, Mount Snowdon, is 26 miles away in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. Here you have a choice on how to reach the summit, either walk or take the splendid mountain railway, well worth a visit.
