At Great Escapes Wales, just like you, we love something a little bit different. That’s why each and every one of our holiday cottages are handpicked by our experienced team. We don’t just look for beautiful places to stay we search for homes that offer something more, something that will make your visit to North Wales a truly memorable experience – you could call it the Welsh X Factor! Whether it’s a great location, a quirky layout or an unusual history each of our cottages have been selected with you in mind.
With over thirty self-catering cottages to choose from, we know you’ll be spoilt for choice. That’s why we’ve decided to share a couple of our favourites with you. Whether you yearn for tranquil isolation or prefer to be in the heart of the action these two cottages have something for everyone. Let us tell you about them and, apologies in advance, if we’ve just made your decision making process more difficult!
Do you yearn to ‘escape to the country’? Situated in the picturesque Conwy Valley, The Farmhouse sits in more than thirty acres of private countryside, so there’s plenty to explore right on your doorstep. The Farmhouse forms part of a small, secluded development of three properties sitting high above the sleepy village of Llanbedr-y-Cenin and boasts stunning views across the Conwy Valley. This traditional, three-bedroom Welsh farmhouse is surrounded by private gardens and comes complete with all mod-cons for a comfortable stay, the perfect base whatever the weather.
Whilst The Farmhouse is well-equipped with modern facilities, including a fully-fitted kitchen and entertainment system, it retains a rustic, country atmosphere which is absolutely charming. From the log-burning stove in the sitting room to the exposed beams throughout, this property offers a welcome alternative to the hubbub of modern life. The Farmhouse is slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of daily life but still within easy reach of all the attractions the coast and Snowdonia have to offer. The Farmhouse is an idyllic home away from home.
If The Farmhouse is a bit too quiet for your tastes then why not consider a property closer to the action? Rhos on Sea, while lacking the hustle and bustle of some of the bigger resorts, is a beautiful spot for a memorable holiday. Located in a quiet part of Rhos, our second property, The Base, is a peaceful, contemporary retreat within easy reach of everything the North Wales coasts has to offer.
Furnished to a very high standard, The Base bears all the hallmarks of a boutique getaway at a fraction of the price. The living area and three bedrooms are sumptuously appointed with luxurious fabrics and accessories while the kitchen-diner is fitted out with everything you need to cook up a culinary storm. More ‘urban-chic’ than ‘chocolate box’ this modern cottage is a great choice for families and groups of friends intent on adventure and exploration in North Wales.
If you’re still torn between The Farmhouse and The Base, why not give us a call to discuss your next trip to North Wales? We won’t decide for you but we’ll be delighted to tell you more about these special places to stay and, maybe, even introduce you to a few more!
We look forward to hearing from you.
