Glan-y-Porth was very cosy, well furnished and very well equipped.
Mr Collinson

I loved the cottage, it had a cosy feel. It was well heated and furnished. I would certainly come back and recommend to others.
Miss Hobson

We liked coming home to the cottage after a long day - it was so lovely, warm and cosy.
Mrs Arnott

The cottage was very cosy and well equipped with added extras that were not expected. In a very pretty little village. The bed linen and towels were spotlessly clean as was the whole cottage upon arrival.
Mr Warren

Traditional cottage in a picturesque North Wales village
We stayed in this cottage for a week as a family of 3. The cottage is very cosy and extremely well equipped. There were added extras that were very welcome and very unexpected. It is decorated to a very pleasant style. There are limited amenities in the village of Ystbty Ifan with a village store that is only open on a Thursday, but 6 miles down the road is the very vibrant village of Betws-y-Coed with plenty of pubs, restaurants, 2 small supermarkets and plenty of gift shops. The cottage is a fantastic base for exploring the beautiful countryside of Snowdonia and is 30 minutes away from Llandudno and the coast of North Wales. We explored many places like Crafnant Lake, Swallow Falls, Conwy Falls, The Fairy Glen all of which offer walking and beautiful scenery. There is plenty of activity in North Wales and even with a teenager (that fully appreciated the wifi within the cottage) there is plenty to keep them amused. We can also definitely recommend an evening curry at the award winning Ty Asha Balti House in the nearby village of Llanwrst about a 20 minute drive from the cottage. If there was a tiny little niggle the property description states use of a BBQ but we couldn't fine one and with the lovely weather it would have been a nice option to cook on.
