With stay Again
The cottage itself was very nice and relaxing to stay in. Hard to find while walking as the Pen-y-byrn road hasn't got it's own road sign but once we found the cottage it was lovely. The cottage wasn't as clean as expected as the oven had old grease stains which would not come off despite our efforts. There were cobwebs and spiders on the kitchen ceiling and we found this disappointing as the cottage described itself as meticulously clean. We had to pay £20 cleaning fee and were surprised at these findings.
The garden shown is a bit misleading as it's much closer to the owner's house than we thought and with the shared garden, we never found the tennis courts and didn't feel comfortable wondering around.
The bedroom, kitchen and bathroom were comfortable and we were happy with everything inside the cottage. Seunghee even put our asda order away as we couldn't get to the house in time and gave us a lift back to the train station the day we were leaving. She and her family fixed our Wi-Fi when it went down and were very welcoming and friendly.
The points of interest we were hoping to visit didn't work out as they were so far away like the angel bay so this was disappointing when we realised. The mountain zoo was also disappointing as we found it was more of an animal sanctuary lacking in funds so we decided not to go there which was one of our main reasons for booking the cottage local to it.
The cottage was a lovely break however and we had our much needed rest and relaxation and the town was close enough for us to go out and to see the beach a few times over the week. Car is definitely advised, not much to do without one unless you're not planning to go out much.
Seaview/ Strawberry mill cottage lovely welcome.My husband and l used the cottage as an escape to relax and have time to explore the national trust properties in the area.Have already recommend to family and friends.
A beautiful cottage, situated perfectly in lovely Colwyn Bay. Very close to all amenities and only 5 minutes from the zoo which is great fun. Very clean, homely cottage, perfect for families. Excellent host, very welcoming. Recommended for anyone looking for a nice stay in this location.
The location of the cottage is great in that you are in a secluded area but yet only minutes from all the amenities. There is a local convenience store and a nice pub (with good food and real ale) within easy walking distance and the main town is a couple of minutes drive. The cottage sits in the grounds of the owner's home and is on a plot that has a nice garden and sea views to the front, but there is nothing directly at the rear. There is a car parking area which is shared with the owner who exit and enter their own house from the car park. The owner (Seunghee) makes you very welcome and leaves you alone to enjoy your holiday.
On entering the cottage we were presented with a welcome note and a large, scrumptious chocolate cake made by the owner which took the two of us several days to devour. There are also several guest comments books which reveal that those who complete them have had a lovely time.
There is a good sized kitchen (with good utensils/crockery) leading to a large lounge with a settee and a bed/settee and a large screen TV with DVD facilities. This room leads directly to the stairs and the double bedroom above. This is a large room with reasonable storage space and has an en-suite bathroom/shower. The bedroom has a good view of the sea and is large enough to house a camp bed and/or a travel cot and there is also a small TV.
This cottage suited our needs perfectly (a couple) but Seunghee stated that children often stay and there are facilities for them e.g. games, DVD's, play area and even a tennis court. However, one point to bear in mind is that there is no door at the top of the stairs as these lead directly into the bedroom which may be a concern for some in terms of noise from the lounge (e.g. the TV) and/or stair safety for a toddler.
All in all, for us, it was a home from home in a great location and recommended. Enjoy!!
