“A little bit of heaven”
Reviewed 29 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This little cottage is a real gem and is situated in a lovely elevated position with views out to the sea. Inside it feels more like you are being invited to share someone's private home rather than a holiday cottage because it is so well kept and cosy. The whole cottage is very comfortable but the huge bed deserves special mention for comfort. All facilities are provided, the only exception being a hair dryer.
The location is excellent for exploring the whole of northwest Wales. As others have mentioned the access road is rather narrow and steep but there is very little traffic so we had no problem even with a larger car, and on most nights we were able to park at the village hall which is only a few minutes away on foot.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable week here and would recommend Craiglwyd Bach to anyone.

“Lovely, quaint cottage in a quiet location and with great views”
Reviewed 16 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

The cottage is situated in the village of Penrhynside, it is up a steep hill as explained in the cottage description, but the helpful owner Robin met us in the Village Hall car park and showed us the way. The cottage is in an ideal location for local walks and also for visiting other areas of interest in North Wales. Robin advised on local walks and amenities, although the two village pubs do not serve food there are eating places nearby. The kitchen in the cottage is well equipped if cooking your own meals, the lounge is very cosy especially with the fire lit and the bedroom has a large and comfortable bed (best we have ever slept in on a holiday and hard to leave). We found the local people and the landlords of the two village pubs friendly, and the Cross Keys pub especially is very cheap for drinks. We will definitely be visiting again.

“Perfect getaway”
Reviewed 11 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

people found this review helpful

I booked Craiglwyd Bach for a week to do some focused reading and writing. I needed basic comfort, shops within walking distance (the climb back up the hill got the heart going) and most importantly, peace and quiet. This was perfect. Mr Holden even met me at the station and brought me to the cottage, was on call thereafter (not needed) and then respected his guest's need for uninterrupted space. Sitting each morning at the breakfast bar looking out over the coast was a calming start to the day. The decor is a touch on the knick-knack side and there are a few draughts, but those are easily blocked and I was able to get snug in the living room and get my writing done. Modern kitchen and all the amenities needed. Will be returning at least twice again this year, a lovely location and property.

“Smoke gets in your eyes”
Reviewed 29 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The access to this cottage is extremely steep and not for the faint-hearted. The owner came to meet us and tell us where to park and said he would be back to let us know about the local walks, however we didn't see him again, but in the event it turned too wet to go walking any distance. From the outside the cottage is pretty and the views are excellent and inside it is clean and well equipped. The super king-sized bed was clean and warm and the shower very efficient, although the bathroom is quite small and there wasn't much room for anything other than soap and towels. During the week the temperature dropped to single figures and it was cold and wet so it would have been nice to be warm in the little lounge, however the radiator in there was almost cold and the wood burner was very messy and occasionally thick black smoke puthered into the room giving us headache.
The settee and chair whilst looking very nice and matching the curtains proved uncomfortable when sitting for any length of time. The Co-oP store in Penrhyn Bay was invaluable and the Beefeater restaurant on the road to Llandudno was excellent, as was the superb theatre on Llandudno's front.

Management Response
29 Sep 2012
Thank you for your review and we were very sorry that you appeared to have encountered a few problems with your booking. The owners are also extremely upset that you did not contact them during your stay as they would have acted immediately to rectify any problems you were incurring. They inform us that they popped around to see you a couple of times but unfortunately you must have been out at the time.

With regard to the woodburner, there have been no previous problems reported however the owners have had the flue checked and the chimney swept in advance of their annual check to ensure all is in order.

Once again, we are sorry that you were disappointed with Craiglwyd Bach however we continue to receive excellent feedback for this delightful property.
