Sleeping two people in one bedroom, this charming detached single storey cottage overlooks Penrhyn Bay, a few miles from Llandudno.

Craiglwyd Bach is a lovely romantic retreat, on a hillside with views over Penrhyn Bay, 3 miles from Llandudno. The bedroom has a super king-size bed which can also be offered as a twin, making it suitable for friends, walkers and couples alike. There is a shower room, a fitted kitchen with breakfast bar, and a sitting room with dining area and woodburner.

Outside, there is off road parking for 1 car, a private patio and shared use of the owners’ half acre grounds. Ideally placed for the North Wales coast, the Snowdonia National Park and the Isle of Anglesey, Craiglwyd Bach makes a wonderful year-round base.


Beautiful romantic cottage with lodge burner and sea views
Beautiful romantic cottage with lodge burner and sea views, what more could you ask for more! The owners are lovely, and easy to contact. Loved the little touches of milk, tea, coffee, sugar, Welsh cakes and dog biscuits, so it was lovely to have a brew after driving up. Two pubs in walking distant, would really recommend the queens head pub for food which is about 5 mins drive away. I would really recommend this place and will book again in the future! Thank you

Nice views but things you need to know
Positives - The cottages has lovely views, the owner Robin was very friendly and shared lots of information on places to visit around North Wales. Avery nice gesture on arrival - cake and dog biscuits. Kitchen and Bathroom very clean, bedroom spacious. Negatives - Driving to the cottage is not for the faint hearted - its very steep and narrow and not easy to get to. If you didn't want to attempt the single track approach you were told there is plenty of parking in the village including on the village hall - this was not the case the little streets had cars parked all the way up and the village car park was tiny and full Lounge too small for the furniture, tired and outdated the room was cold and not big enough for two medium sized dogs. When we booked the cottage - we searched for a cottage near dog friendly beaches with a local pub within walking distance - our intention to spend the day site seeing, walking the dogs on the beach returning to the cottage around 5ish to get showered to walk to the pub for a few drinks and a meal. All beaches are lovely and within driving distance (not walking) which is not good when you return and there is no where to park, there are two pubs within walking distance neither serve food and both lack atmosphere - if you want an evening meal (other than cook it yourself) you have to drive. No shop or facilities within walking distance. Nothing to do in the evening other than sit in the cottage unless you drive (and then you face the parking issue on return).

excellent little cottage
just returned from a week away, celebrating our wedding anniversary. beautiful cottage tucked away in penrhynside. great facilities, parked in village hall, short walk to cottage no problem. cottage has everything you need, clean, cosy and lovely and warm. lovely little patio garden, safe for dogs. 2 dog friendly pubs close by. beautiful walks on your doorstep which our lurcher thoroughly enjoyed. llandudno was within walking distance. short distance to little orme with chance to see the seals. fantastic time, already booked to come back just need to stay longer as there is so much to see and do. thanks robin and fiona for a great stay.

Peaceful retreat
This was the perfect retreat for my wife and me. Although the cottage is in a tightly packed narrow street, it is peaceful and feels very private, with wonderful views. The little patio at the front is strategically hedged off from others, but with clear views across the countryside and sea as one sits at the garden table. The cottage itself is of genuine historical interest, but is thoroughly modern in its facilities. It is clean, and thoughtfully decorated and equipped, with a very comfortable bed. We were able to truly relax and returned home refreshed.

The cottage is beautiful and so well-equipped with safe and secure parking. The owner was excellent, they were very helpful and welcoming. We will definitely return next year.
