From the moment we arrived we were greeted with a very warm welcome from Iwan and Es. They had warm scones with Jam and some milk waiting for us which we thought was a lovely touch. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this to others if they are looking for a quiet and peaceful getaway. Just what we needed, thank you so much!

T W,

Wow! This is a slice of heaven. Peace and quiet, beautiful scenery and gorgeous accommodation. I usually have to bring so much from home as self catering is normally lacking but on this occasion I left everything packed. The hot tub over looking the views is superb and enjoyed the company of the 'ladies' in the filed near by. The owners were amazing hosts and we are already planning our next holiday! Thank you

Past Customer,

Thank you for a lovely stay. The Cwt is so cosy and modern. It had everything we needed, as well as some amazing views. We had a beautiful trip up Snowdon and a lovely day out at Gwrych Castle. The hosts were fantastic, would definitely recommend coming here to family and friends in the future! Thanks x

Past Customer,

Thank you for a lovely stay - the cottage really is wonderful and the hot tub was an absolute treat after long days of exploring the beautiful area. We also loved seeing the cows grazing in the field whilst sat in the hot tub. Thanks again! x x

Past Customer,

5 star plus cottage! We have had a wonderful week, just what we needed after lockdown. The peace and quiet here is amazing. Cwt bach has been decorated to the highest speck with everything you could wish for. Then there is the hot tub, so welcome after a day out. We have loved to sit and watch the swallows flying in and out of the barn, the buzzard on the fence post and the daily parade of the girls (dairy cows). I felt I was back home on the farm. The peace of Cwt Bach will forever be in our hearts. We wish you well with all of your future endeavours. Zip wire a must. Tea in the old court house in Llanrwst (the ugly house). A trip to Anglesey to visit LlanfairPG and Beaumaris.

Past Customer,

What an amazing little hideaway Cwt Bach is! Just the perfect place to spend a week relaxing in nature. Couldn't have asked for more. Amazing place and the hot tub was just like the icing on the cake. Thanks to the owners x x

Past Customer,

Beautifully furnished, cosy hide away. An absolute gem of a find.

Dr Charlotte N,

Thank you Es and Iwan for the most wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage. We have had a fantastic time exploring the area and it had been such a cosy place to return to each day. The hot tub was great with absolutely stunning views. A huge thank you again. We will definitely recommend Cwt Bach!

Bethan & T,

Thank you Es & Iwan for a lovely stay in your cottage. We have had a great time exploring the local area and Snowdonia. The cottage has been a perfect hideaway to come back to after a long day walking – watching the stars at night was special from the hot tub. A special mention to the local ‘Black Lion’ the best chocolate brownies, Thanks again.

Eleanor & C,

A beautiful, relaxing stay. Stunning views and the cosiest, cute cottage we could have asked for. Hot tub under the stars at night with a glass of bubbly is a dream every night and so warm even in the winter. Lovely local town with easy access to the shops and beach! Have absolutely loved our stay. Thanks, so much Es & Iwan

Kate & A,

Had a great Christmas here in your beautiful renovation, what a place! Warm, comfortable, relaxing – it was lovely watching the evening stars appear from the hot tub. We will definitely recommend to friends and family. Lots to see and do, historic, adventurous, natural beauty, the area has it all (but maybe not Rhyl!) Thank you Es & Iwan.

Fred & J,


This detached studio, a beautiful barn conversion, enjoys a peaceful setting in stunning North Wales countryside. Access the property by following a country lane from the owners' working dairy farm, crossing a small bridge over the river Elwy as you follow the same route as the dairy cows (separated by a fence). The gradual climb provides picturesque views of the river weaving its way through the valley and the dairy cows grazing in the fields. From its elevated, tranquil position, Cwt Bach is also a great spot for some wildlife spotting, from wild deer, foxes and pheasant to birds such as woodpeckers, eagles and kites.

A village pub / restaurant and Siop y Llan shop with Post Office & groceries can be found in the nearby village of Llanfair Talhaiarn (2.5 miles). The nearest supermarket (Tesco) is just 5 miles, in the coastal town of Abergele. The village pub offers a lovely setting for a relaxing drink and good food. Some of the other recommended places to eat locally includes The Kinmel Arms in St George (5 miles) and Porth Eirias in Colwyn Bay (8 miles) where you will find Bryn Williams' restaurant. Cliffs in Rhyd y Foel (5.5 miles) is another recommendation, as well as The Stag in Llangernyw (7 miles), Manor Conwy, Castle Conwy and Signatures (17 miles), to name only a few.

The cottage is also a great base to enjoy a wide range of activities and attractions, including Pensarn Beach (5 miles), where you can also access the Wales Coast Path and follow the coastline by foot or bike (bike hire available locally). With the A55 within 5 miles, you can also enjoy easy access to the entire North Wales coast, including gems such as the walled castle town of Conwy (17 miles) and Llandudno (19 miles).

Visit Snowdonia National Park and all its attractions, from Zip World (16 miles) to Surf Snowdonia (17 miles) and mountain railways. Discover market towns such as Ruthin, border towns and even the Roman city of Caer (Chester), home to Chester Zoo, 34 miles east. For families, SC2 Rhyl Waterpark (9 miles) also offers a fun day out, as does the Adventure Trail in St George (4 miles) and Locked in North Wales, in Abergele. Betws y Coed, the main hub of Snowdonia (18 miles) and Llyn Brenig Reservoir and Visitor Centre (15 miles) are also highly recommended.
