This detached 4 bedroomed house was stunning! It had all the modern touches (wifi, wii console, docking station, washing machine etc) but it still kept its character. We stayed with our 2 young children and our dog and every aspect was accommodated for - a stair gate, highchair, baby bath, baby walker and travel cot were provided free of charge for the baby and there was a large and secure spacious kennel for our dog whenever we went out (sheltered and undercover in the outhouse). The owners were lovely and sent us information prior to our arrival with places to eat, visit etc and they met us on arrival to hand over the key etc and were kind enough to have put wine, milk and butter in the fridge and also to leave us some welsh bread (such a thoughtful touch!). The whole house was very homely and we absolutely loved the real fire which we lit each night. There is a gorgeous pub literally at the end of the driveway (20 seconds walk at most!) and they do takeaways which was very handy. We sat in one night and the staff were lovely (child and dog friendly). The house is in a perfect location for exploring North Wales so we will definitely visit again soon!
What an amazing place to stay, attention to detail is superb and the amenities are great. In the heart of a beautiful Welsh village and right next to the pub. Lovely walks on the doorstep and lots to do and see locally. Stunning views of the Welsh hills and countryside and easy to take trips to nearby Conwy castle and Llandudno. Nothing was too much trouble and the owners are very friendly and approachable. The house is beautiful with everything a family or group of friends could need from a short break or longer holiday. Fitted out to the highest standard with 4 gorgeous ensuite bedrooms, we found that as a group the house layout was such that we could all spend time together or take ourselves off for some peace and quiet. The house is a credit to its owners and our every need was taken care of. We will definitely be staying again in the new year.
We stayed in Y Gorlan for a family get-together. Annette & Peter, the hosts, were very friendly and helpful, and communication before the stay and while we were there was very easy. The house has been tastefully furnished with everything we needed for our stay, very good showers throughout, a big garden and plenty of seating and kitchen equipment. Peter & Annette were very accommodating, staying late in the night to meet the first guests, and couldn't have done more to help us enjoy our stay. We enjoyed walking from the village of Rowen and visits to Conwy Castle and Llandudno, as well as an excellent meal in the village pub (just yards from the house). The house is a great base for exploring Snowdonia, and so comfortable that you would be kept entertained even if the weather turned against you, with a wood-burning stove and plenty of books and games. Diolch yn fawr iawn.

House was great. Very clean and spacious. Beer, wine, and fresh flowers waiting for us on our arrival, as well as eggs, locally made bread, sausage, and bacon for breakfast. The layout works very well with each room having its own full bathroom. Fireplace and comfy reclining couches in the family room and very comfortable kitchen and dining arrangements. Annette was flexible about our arrival time and welcomed us to the home. The village is quaint and very quiet---perfect location for relaxing then heading out to Conwy or Betws-y-Coed and neighboring areas. Neighbors were very welcoming and the pub at the end of the driveway was perfect: great food, good prices, and uncrowded. All in all, a spacious, comfortable, clean, and relaxing home in a great location with great hosts! Very much recommended!
Our first family vacation within Wales. The house was in a perfect location to explore Anglesey & Snowdonia. The cleanliness was outstanding & all four rooms were on-suite. The kids had a lovely garden to play in whilst we were able to sit back & unwind after a day of exploring Wales beauty.
We will definitely be booking to go back soon!
