Y Neuadd Lwyd
About the home
Y Neuadd Lwyd is a family run business and as such our primary concern is to ensure our guests experience a genuinely unique cottage which is cleaned and maintained to the highest of standards by the owners themselves. We pride ourselves on attention to detail and aim to provide our guests with a personal touch looking after their every need from the initial booking enquiry, ensuring the cottage is spotlessly clean, the bed linen is washed and ironed to perfection, to greeting guests with a warm welcome and if required showing our guests how to set and light the wood burning stove. As there is no agent involved no additional booking fee is charged.
This locally historical Grade II Listed cottage is a former 16th Century tavern which has been extensively modernised internally whilst retaining all of its external period character. On the ground floor, the property has spacious, open plan living accommodation with beamed ceilings, inglenook fireplace and woodburning stove, modern fitted kitchen and separate utility room. The Lounge area leads out onto an extensive decked terrace overlooking a private South West facing courtyard garden and the spectacular Snowdonia countryside beyond. Upstairs, the property has 2 stylish double bedrooms both with modern en-suite shower rooms. An additional fold away single bed is also available with bedding and linen for a nominal charge (suitable for a child). The cottage is approached along a private drive and has ample off road parking for 2 cars.
The cottage is within walking distance of the village shop, newly refurbished local pub which serves food and public transport links. Portmerion, Snowdon, Bodnant Gardens, The Welsh Highland Stream Railway, Llandudno, Llechwedd Slate Caverns and Conwy Castle to name just a few are all within no more than a 40 minute drive by car.
