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 Rowen

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!

Sycamore Cottage is a very homely & lovely cottage .

  • 4 of 5

We had a great holiday the cottage was very clean and had everything you could want,. The ground floor bedroom en-suite was perfect for my husband who is disabled. Only problem was that the water for the bath upstairs went cold before the bath was full. The view from the conservatory was fantastic and the wild birds were great to watch. Conwy and all the other places of interest were so easy to get to. Hope to return perhaps when the weather will be kinder to us. We appreciated the wine and chocs left by Mike & Tina. The Pancake House was an added attraction. Thanks Mike for your lovely cottage.

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
