A sumptuous 3 bedroom luxury cottage near Bodnant Garden which sleeps 8 guests in style. Set on the side of a hill with amazing views across the Conwy Valley yet within a few miles of the North Wales coast, the historic town of Conwy and Betws y Coed.

This luxury boutique retreat is situated 2 miles from the village of Eglwysbach which has a convenience store and pub. The cottage enjoys panoramic views from a quiet, elevated hillside location, making ideal as a family or couples' hideaway.

The cottage dates back some 400 years and is packed with modern luxuries and high quality fittings. The lounge is beautifully presented with inviting leather sofas, high vaulted ceiling and a wood burning stove. The luxury kitchen is beautifully fitted and the generous island breakfast bar provides a real focal point. There are 3 large and beautifully furnished bedrooms with 3 luxury bath/shower rooms. The main bathroom deserves a special mention; double height ceiling, luxury rolltop bath (with pillow), feature marble tiling and a magnificent chandelier.

This luxury holiday cottage in the Conwy Valley cottage has twice the standard insulation and is uses an eco-friendly heat recovery system to ensure a cosy temperature all year round, this also makes it ideal for allergy sufferers. The property enjoys travertine tiles warmed with underfloor heating on the ground floor and has solid oak flooring throughout the bedrooms.

There are many country walks right from the door, great for exploring, then snuggle up in front of the large Samsung flatscreen TV and enjoy the wood burning stove.

This luxury Eglwysbach cottage is just a couple of miles of the renowned Bodnant Garden and the Bodnant Welsh Food Centre with a reasonably priced farm shop, wine shop, restaurant and tea rooms, definitely worth a visit - their Chelsea Buns are enormous. Slightly further afield is the World Heritage Site of Conwy with its castle and marina and of course the popular coastal town of Colwyn Bay and the Welsh Mountain Zoo. Just one junction along the A55 gives easy access to the Victorian resort Llandudno with the Great Orme, the pier and a wealth of shops.

"Excellent cottage which pictures do not do justice."

Excellent cottage which the brochure pictures don't do justice. Guidance from the owner of how to get there and how to use everything superb. Made to feel totally at home. Stunning views and lots to do in the area. Well exceeded our expectations.
