Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 11 from age 11months to 70 years. This house really is something special. Secluded from the road in its own beautiful surroundings. The garden is huge and beautiful and the trip over to the beach takes less than 10 mins. The hot tub was a wonderful addition and was enjoyed by all of us. The house is so spacious and beautifully decorated so much so that I don't think the photos do it full justice. Also lovely helpful owner. Would love to return one day.

Fantastic characterful property

  • 5 of 5

As a group of three families it was just perfect. It had a lovely homely feel and we had a brilliant time over the New Year weekend.

The property is well maintained and very clean. We would happily recommend to others.

Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and went on and on as did the grounds. Beautifully maintained and really lovely place for us to stay for a few nights. We were a group of 30+ yr olds in couples and loved the hot tub and fire. The owner was very friendly and nothing was too much. We really appreciated that we could leave on check out day later than the other cottages we have stayed at. It made all the difference. The highlights of the house were definitely the service bells and the tiny wild rabbits in the gardens. Thank you for a wonderful relaxing stay. Would definitely return.

Wonderful house for a family get together.

  • 5 of 5

We were a family party of 13 people aged from 12 to nearly 60. The house was perfect for a get together and we have just returned from a 3 night's stay. The house is huge and interesting with extensive gardens. The kitchen was well equipped so we cooked all our meals in the house. The kitchen was big enough for us to congregate for coffee and chats and the hot tub was a bit of a treat. No wi fi available, which initially panicked some of the young people but they were happy to play board games, pool, talk and watch TV instead. There are beautiful views everywhere and the nearby beach was virtually deserted the days we were there. Bit of a scramble on the last part of the access to the beach due to the what seem to be newly built storm barriers. We have thoroughly enjoyed staying at Glan Afon and would not hesitate to recommend a stay there.

Lovely old house in beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed here for Easter week. We were a party of 8 adults, 3 children (aged 5, 7 and 10 ) and a baby. The large Georgian house was comfortable, with plenty of room for everyone. There were games, a pool table, DVDs and books. The setting of the house , just off the main road in lovely grounds was ideal. In summer it would be a really great place to enjoy. The hot tub was well worth the additional charge. We would recommend this property.

Enjoyed a great New Year Stay

  • 4 of 5

4 night stay for party of 8 adults, 6 children (aged 7 to 12) plus a young toddler. Comfortable, spacious period property which more than met our needs. I could imagine the house working even better in the summer months where the outdoor space could be used more. Children had loads of space to play and a snug little TV room with 100's of DVDs was a neat idea. There's a large formal dining room, but the heart of the house for us was the kitchen / diner. Double oven and large fridge / freezer and utility room for all the food and drink you could need. Might be a squeeze to sit every one at the same time, but we fed the children first and then didn't really move from here. Weather was a bit rough but we managed to do some walking and there's a 10-pin bowling, go carting centre not far. Good communication from the owner throughout and no hesitation on recommending the property - would happily visit again.

As the team cook I would ask for a larger oven dish or heavy dutch oven / stock pot, but we managed fine.

Heating, hot water, dishwasher and bathrooms all good and clean etc
