About Michael Clair

We moved to North Wales in 2007 with my wife, three children and our pet Labrador, Max. We live in Llandudno in a beautiful family home which has taken six years to renovate. Before we moved here we spent a lot of time either holidaying in the area and eventually purchased the Cottage in 2004. We used it as a family holiday home until we moved here permanently.

Michael Clair purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Michael Clair chose Wales

We bought this property for its location. After having static caravans for a number of years in North Wales, we fell in love with the area and we decided a permanent base was necessary. The cottage location allowed us to relax and wind down after a long week at work, the scenery and clean air was ideal for us as we used to live in a large town. We could finally escape the rat race.

What makes this cottage unique

The main benefit for us was it's rural location, we found that we could enjoy the tranquillity of the countryside whilst being in the vicinity of the local towns which was ideal as we had three young children. Close by is Conwy Water Gardens offering fishing lakes, pancake house / restaurant, reptile house, ottos and abundance of wild life. In the village of Rowen is the Tygwyn Pub, perfect now our kids are older!

Lovely homely clean cottage with an amazing view from a lovely conservatory

  • 5 of 5

2nd stay at the cottage and discovered many new walks. The conservatory and the view are my favourite things but love the cottage with the lovely flowers and wild birds that visit the bird table . It's just a perfect escape from the rat race . Pancake house next door is also delicious and the staff are lovely .

Nice holiday cottage with lovely views and in a superb quiet location.

  • 4 of 5

Nice holiday cottage with lovely views and in a superb quiet location. Ideally situated to enjoy all that North Wales has to offer; Conwy, Snowdonia, Llandudno, Betws y Coed and Cwm Idwal National Nature Reserve. Fantastic scenery and walks. Dutch Pancake House, 1 minute walk from the cottage, is worth a visit.

Owners kindly welcomed us with a bottle of wine and chocolates, which was well received after a long drive. Cottage is well equipped for a pleasant stay.

Thank you

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in October 2016, loved the cottage it is in a lovely peaceful area hidden behind the Conwy Water Gardens and Dutch Pancake House. Amazing views from the Conservatory/Back Garden. Loved the open coal fire my husband felt at home as we have a log burning stove at home. The cottage was lovely and clean and the kitchen very well equipped, I actually brought a few of my kitchen pans and cooking utensils as wasn't sure what would be there but didn't have to take them out of the car. Loved the short walk to the Water gardens and the little Nature Trail. We also loved the Dutch Pancake house well worth a visit. We hope to book the cottage again next year or 2018. Owners easily contactable for any queries too. Thanks for letting us use your cottage we loved our stay. Julie, Peter, Maddison and Little Gizmo the dog.

Fantastic weeks break definitely rebooking!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was cosy and homely. The views from the conservatory are breath taking even our 6 and 4 year olds commented ! They kids really appreciated the hospitality of chocolates ( we enjoyed the wine) lovely touch Mike and Tina.

We loved the water park the otters and capybara were the kids favourites (free entertainment) . There are so many species of wild birds that come to feed from the feeding table in the decked area and also the local chickens too.

The cottage is so quiet and suited us down to the ground, our young cocker spaniel is only just recovering after all the walking lol.

We loved the Castle town of Conwy and Llandudno's pier and beach. The locals are very friendly and there are some places to eat out that are dog friendly .

We will be rebooking for next year

We can highly recommend this cottage holiday.
