Holiday Cottage in the Conwy Valley | Llwyn-Y-Coed-Isaf

Dog FriendlyNear Pub

Llwyn-Y-Coed-Isaf is a 3 bedroom bungalow in Dolgarrog, 10 minutes outside Conwy, on the northern border of the Snowdonia National Park. I’ll have to mention the view first. It’s just fantastic. An uninterrupted panorama across the valley. The Conwy River slowly winds its way to the sea flanked by beds of golden reeds as shadows dance across the rolling hills on the banks beyond.

Naturally the house has been arranged so that guests can enjoy the view from almost every room in the house. But the lounge does it best perhaps. Large comfortable sofas, a nice telly and fire are all included. But best of all are the large patio doors that overlook the valley below.

The dining area is the other end of the room and sits 6 quite comfortable. This open plan arrangement is perfect for younger families giving the children the opportunity to escape towards the telly when they get bored of the grown ups conversation.

Great view from the kitchen too. And a nice modern fitted kitchen complete with large fridge and dishwasher. The freezer and washing machine are in the adjoining utility room.

Three bedrooms in total. All well proportioned and nicely laid out. One bedroom has a king sized bed, the next has a double bed and the third has twin beds. All of them have plenty of wardrobe space, bed side lamps etc and the linen has been carefully chosen and go well with this light and cheerful property. Two bathrooms with wc’s. One has a spacious shower the other has a shower over bath arrangement. The heating and hot water run off a oil fired combi boiler so an unlimited supply of hot water is assured.

Floor Plans




Like me, you may not be as familiar with this northern part of The Snowdonia National Park. But the rolling hills and wide valleys are a pleasing contrast to the more rugged peaks and troughs in other parts of the Park. And Llwyn Y Coed Isaf is a great base from which to explore.

Conwy town centre and it’s famous medieval castle is only 10 minutes away. And Conwy’s sandy beach and golf course are another 5 minutes further on. The RSPB nature reserve is also worth a visit. Llandudno, a popular shopping town for locals and tourists, is 20 minutes away to the north. Betws Y Coed is a quieter more picturesque town to the south. This town of course, is very popular with adventure sports enthusiasts. Speaking of which the celebrated Marin Mountain Bike Trail sets off from Llanrwst, just 10 minutes down the road. The trail is 25km long and includes some big climbs and steep single track descents so not for the faint hearted.

Other, gentler attractions you should visit includes the wonderful Bodnant Gardens, the National Food Centre also on the Bodnant Estate, the roman spa and woollen mill at Trefriw and the Welsh Mountain Zoo at Colwyn Bay. Ramblers will revel in the fact that the Carneddau Mountains are right on your doorstep.

There are two pubs in the village, both serving food. These are within easy walking distance as is the village shop, the post office and the butchers.

We chose this property for our annual family get together and considered it a lucky find. We agree with all the reviews and have nothing new to add. It’s a delightfully comfortable, well equipped and spacious property. The views are outstanding and it’s a great base to explore this beautiful valley. Katie and Emma are very efficient and helpful hosts too. We highly recommend a stay here.

Stunning views! Well appointed and comfortable cottage. Welcome pack of milk, bread and biscuits a lovely touch.

A lovely cottage, perfect location for visiting family in North Wales. Everything we needed was in the property. Peaceful location. Beautiful views. WiFi was good which always helps for planning the following day’s activities. Welcome gift was very thoughtful and appreciated. Contacted Katie beforehand and once during our stay and she always replied promptly with the information required. Stayed with adult children and after getting home in the evening we would take turns pick our favourite dvds from the extensive collection then the rest of the group would choose from those which one to watch, silly thing to do but we enjoyed it after being out all day. Netflix and prime on the tv too if dvds are too retro. Zephyrs restaurant at Hilton hotel is a 10-15 minute walk away if you’re looking for a nice meal is worth booking. Would definitely recommend Llwyn-Y-Coed Isaf and would stay again without hesitation.

The view from the cottage along the Conwy valley is just breathtaking and so peaceful! We saw a variety of wildlife during our visit including Housemartins, Woodpeckers, Wild Rabbits, Buzzards and Bats! The bungalow had everything we needed with such comfy beds. A good location also to get to Conwy, Llandudno, Bodnant and Betwys Y Coed. We enoyed the tree top nets at Zip World and enjoyed strolling down to Surf Snowdonia to use the bar and its games. We can’t wait to come back. Thank you for such a great holiday Dioni.

Emma Menzies

We absolutely loved our stay here. Everything we could possibly have needed was provided and more. It was so peaceful we could have enjoyed bird watching the entire stay sitting on the elevated patio. Loved it.

Katherine Lonie

Really enjoyed our stay. Spacious and comfortable cottage in a peaceful location with lovely views. Great walks nearby, also handy for the lively welcoming towns of Llandudno, Conwy and Betws Y Coed.

We spent a week at the holiday cottage at the end of September 2021, the cottage was extremely well equipped with everything there that you could need for a wonderful break. We had fresh bread,scones, biscuits & milk on arrival which was a really nice touch. The owners were available when we needed them during our break and extremely helpful! We had a fab week and will definitely return.

We’ve had a lovely week’s stay Llwyn-Y-Coed Isaf. It’s a quiet, comfortable, well equipped and homely cottage.
The views from windows and patio are lovely, across the Conwy Valley.
For dog owners, it’s worth scanning the perimeter if you have a four legged escapologist. The boundaries lead on to livestock fields and the fences, in places, could be easily hopped over/around. Luckily our girl respects boundaries, but she loved watching the sheep, horses and squirrels (who adore the birds feeders).
The Cottage provides a good hub for exploring the area from. We did several walks from the cottage itself, including to Tal-Y-cafyn pub (dog friendly) for a great Sunday lunch. A good base for walks from Rowen (visit Ty Gwyn pub), Trefriw and Betws-y-Coed, into the Carneddau and around Gwydir Forest and lakes.
Conwy just up the road, and Bodnant very close by in the car.
Comfy bed, lots of hot water for much needed baths after hikes and everything you need if cooking at the cottage.
Board games and jigsaws aplenty, if you tear yourself away from the view (or escape the occasional midges!) and want something other than TV to occupy your evenings.
All in all a lovely cottage in a good spot for exploring the area, with a lovely view. We’d happily return. Thanks Katie and Emma (who were really helpful with tips too!).

Absolutely fantastic cottage excellent holiday would recommend it to anyone


The bungalow was as near to perfect as we could have wished. The size of the rooms, very comfortable beds and a view that I would never tire of. We enjoyed walking locally, including dog accessible beaches and woods and discovered the Tal y Cafn pub for a good evening meal and our ‘end of holiday treat’ which is breakfast out on our last day, making the packing up and leaving so much easier!
Perfect weather, location and accommodation, well done to all at Dioni for arranging!
