"homely cottage"

we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this homely cottage, it is quiet and peaceful but not far from all amenities. it was also pet friendly and everything was clean and tidy.

"Watch steam trains from the sofa!"

If you want to travel on the little trains of Wales this cottage is for you. 5 min walk to Minffordd stations, steam trains can be watched at close range from the level crossing on the drive, or from the comfort of the sofa! Great for taking photographs! About half hour walk into pretty Portmeirion. Comfy and unique cottage. The dogs are rather over-friendly at first, but if you ignore them they soon realise you don't want to play.

"Ideal spot for a totally car-free holiday... with a dog!"

Our holiday at Bron Turnor was a bit special because it's the first time (in the UK) that we holidayed without a car. Bron Turnor is ideal for this because it's a five minute walk from Minffordd railway station for main-line and Ffestiniog railway trains and from bus stop and shops in Penrhyn are only about a 15 minute walk away. Bron Turnor was very welcoming, homely and comfortable, and we really enjoyed our stay. Recommend it for anyone interested in seeing steam trains running by the front garden, walking, hiking mountains and generally relaxing, and for 60's cult TV fans, beautiful Portmeirion is also an easy walk away.
