    Even though we knew from the website photos that this cottage looked nice we didn't realise how beautiful it was when we arrived. The location has lovely views across the Conwy Valley to the mountains of Carnedd Llewelyn and beyond. The location is actually very good as you can get to Conway, Llandudno and the north coast easily, Snowdonia is 20 minutes away, Betws-y-Coed 10 minutes, west coast and Anglesea easily achievable within an hour. Beautiful Bodnant Gardens are within a couple of miles and a lovely farm shop & restaurant is not too far from the cottage either. There are some fantastic places to eat within 10 minutes drive radius. Lllanwrst is also a nice town to visit and for walks along the Conwy river. The quality of the cottage is superb with oak flooring in the kitchen, beautiful soft carpet in the living and bed rooms, a fantastic contemporary bathroom with a quality bath and shower, c/w underfloor heating. There's a log stove for those cosy nights in c/w enough logs to get you going for at least a couple of nights and plenty more logs are available from the owners log store, which they'll ask you to pay a small fee based upon an honesty system. We stayed for 4 nights in February and I used another basket that's all. Even without the stove, you won't be cold as there is a modern central heating system that really warms the place up with easy to use controls. The kitchen is equipped with a full height fridge freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer all integrated. I couldn't find anything lacking in the utensils department, and my wife and I do quite a lot of cooking from scratch. The living room has comfortable clean furniture and a modern large format Netflix enabled TV. The bedroom is spacious and has the most comfortable super king size bed I've ever slept in, there's also another large format TV mounted on the wall here too. The cleanliness of this place is outstanding, and you feel like you're the first people in - it just smells so new, and the towels, bed linen, pillows seem like they've been bought new. The general cleanliness of the building, the carpets, bathroom, kitchen is of the highest standard we've ever come across. It gives you the impression that the owners take their business seriously and want people to enjoy their stay. There are 22 acres of land, with ponds and lakes all of which are available for guests use, which you'll find in the information pack along with a comprehensive list of things to do and places to eat. The owners (Andy & Jo) themselves are a lovely couple, they rang us the night before we set off to ensure that we knew where we were going, how to get there, how to contact them if need be and even sent us a WhatsApp pin on a map to tell us exactly where we were going! Andy popped over once we'd settled in just to run us through the basics of the cottage. They seem to know how to treat their guests because they were so unobtrusive, and yet we had the impression they would be so attentive if anything was needed. On a last note, we have been many places in the UK and the world in private s/c accomodation, and while we've (luckily) never had a bad place I'd put this experience in my top 5, and it would be no.1 in the UK. Thanks to Jo and Andy, for being such excellent hosts - you've nailed it!

    Owners made us very welcome. Gorse Barn was furnished beautifully and spotlessly clean. The views were stunning and being remote gave us the peace and quiet we love.
