About the property

Cottage in Rowen, Conwy, Wales - Peaceful Location, 5 Minutes Walk To The Pub. No pets.

Pen-y-Bont is a tastefully restored, central heated, c16 Welsh cottage set in the picturesque village of Rowen at the heart of the Conwy Valley, in the Snowdonia National Park. Situated in a secluded location but also within a 5-minute walk of a lively, traditional pub, featuring Welsh singing every Friday night and serving the best pint of Guinness outside of Dublin (probably)...not to be missed!

If you're feeling more energetic the area is a walker's paradise with all the majestic peaks of North Wales within close proximity & ancient Roman paths and the multi-award winning Bodnant Garden (Owned by the National Trust and one of the most spectacular and admired gardens in Britain) right on your doorstep.

Check-in is Friday - lie in on departure day...check out at 12 pm :)

Little piece of paradise.

  • 5 of 5

I had read wonderful reviews about the cottage and was not left disappointed. Stunning, more spacious than i thought. Extremely comfortable bed so much so we meant to check the make of the mattress before we left but unfortunately forgot! Good powerful shower and fantastic kitchen and most importantly to ourselves it was so peaceful. Fantastic friendly pub across the road, what more can you ask for. A great place to recharge your batteries. Can't wait to return.

Absolutely loved this cottage. Feel like we found a real gem. Beautiful surroundings, beautiful cottage, fixtures and fittings, they have thought of everything. The village was so pretty, everyone we spoke to was friendly and the pub was a real heart of the village local. We were made to feel vey welcome. Can honestly say i didnt want to leave.

Great little cottage in a quiet location.

  • 4 of 5

Great cottage and well situated next to a river with a nice local pub across the the foot bridge. There is no allocated parking for the property, this was only an issue on arrival having to park next to the pub and having to walk a few trips to unload. Inside the cottage is spacious and very comfortable, the decor is of a high standard with all the mod cons you need. Yes the pub across the bridge does serve a great pint of Guiness as mentioned by previous guests. There are lots of great places to visit and plenty of great walks on the doorstep. Lots of info on days out and walks within the cottage. Also there is a red phone box next to the pub which has more touristy stuff in......

Beautiful cottage, isolated by a small bridge with a babbling brook soundtracking your arrival

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful stay in the property, which is stunning from the outside and inside. Wonderful kitchen to spend your time cooking in, and a living space which is very relaxing.

Paul was on hand for anything we may have needed, but everything was perfectly set out for us his assistance was never required! He did recommend the Guinness in the local pub, which was gratefully received and enjoyed!

Thanks for everything Paul, we very much look forward to staying again!
