Holiday home This lovely 18th Century property is a stone built cottage occupying a quiet position in the pretty village of Gwaenysgor, just two miles of Prestatyn. This semi-detached property has been well furnished and tastefully decorated to incorporate the exposed stone walls and beams of the original building. The beautifully established garden is ideal for dining out doors or relaxing with an evening drink. The property is able to sleep four people and offers easy access to many lovely walking and cycling trails, wide sandy beaches, and fascinating towns including Prestatyn and the Victorian resort of Llandudno.
Area Set on the side of a hill in the quiet North Wales countryside, the tiny village of Gwaenysgor is situated within the Clwydian Hill Range, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The summit is a mere quarter of a mile away and provides a wonderful panoramic view over the countryside and coast.

A lovely peaceful place to stay with beautiful views and an excellent garden, our children had a great time.
The owner was wonderful - very friendly and helpful. The property was perfect for our needs with an excellent pub serving great food directly opposite. Cannot fault anything. Will definitely stay again if in the area.
The cottage is a typical old Welsh cottage and was everything we hoped it would be. Very clean and tidy, the conservatory was especially good as was the garden. Cannot fault it, and it was reasonably priced.
This is the second time we have visited this property and we love the quiet location. It is close to friends that we visit and is a good base from which to visit North Wales. The property is easy to find, clean and tidy and we found the conservatory and garden were a very pleasant sun trap. The owner was also there to greet us and gave some helpful recommendations of places to visit. We will definitely use this cottage again.
The cottage is in a beautiful village. Easy access from the cottage to other locations. The cottage is lovely and the owner friendly and helpful.
The cottage was amazing and the location was ideal. It was quiet and away from everything. The owner couldn't do enough for us and I would recommend this cottage to anybody - brilliant!
Could not fault cottage - a home from home. Owner really helpful. Near loads of interesting places to visit. The garden was superb to come home to. Would definitely like to return and certainly will recommend to friends.
Cottage was very comfortable, immaculately clean with a super shower. Lovely conservatory and garden in an area of outstanding natural beauty, was all fabulous! The pictures on the website did not do it justice, we were delighted.
The fact that this was our seventh visit to Pen y Parc really says it all. It has everything you need in a top quality cottage.
Lovely location in a quiet village.
Everything was perfect! It could not have been improved upon. Our home away from home was the best ever, and the owner was fantastic.
The location was very quiet, the village pub which was just across the road was not noisy and we had a very pleasant meal there. The cottage was very comfortable, with plenty of cutlery and crockery. Extra blankets and pillows were available and plenty of clean towels are provided. A very pleasant cottage that we would recommend. We look forward to returning to this cottage in the future.
The peaceful location and the cottage itself is beautiful. The owner was very welcoming and was there to greet us at the door. This cottage is gorgeous and a great centre for getting to local places of interest. Would definitely recommend to friends and family and may visit again ourselves.
The cottage was beautiful and in an idyllic location, being in a very quiet village. The standard of the cottage was excellent with a lovely garden and conservatory. Everything you could need was inside the cottage and the owner was very welcoming.
This was our 6th visit to Pen Y Parc. We continue to be impressed by the welcome we receive, the high quality and comfort of the cottage and the splendid location. What more can you ask.
Location is excellent!
Stunning location, quiet but convenient to the town. The warm welcome of the owner and the feeling of cleanliness and airiness when we first arrived at the property was much appreciated after a long journey. A very comfortable cottage - the conservatory was a fantastic bonus and a great place to relax.
This was our second stay at the cottage and we enjoyed it even more than the last time! It's in a fantastic location and great for exploring the North Wales coast. We were also really pleased with the owners attentive nature.
Although we have visited Pen y Parc on several occasions we continue to be impressed by the excellent and comfortable facilities.
Although only a short stay it was a real pleasure to be able to return to such a cosy and welcoming cottage from the typical November weather.
Excellent cottage, good location for touring the area. I can highly recommend.
Some lovely walks around the village and great location for North Wales attractions. South facing enclosed garden. Good food at Eagle and Child pub opposite. Owner has thought of everything to make this cottage a delightful home from home - even candles and tealight holders.
Cottage was very comfortable and in a beautiful and quiet location. Conservatory was well used, very light and airy and warm.
Lovely location, close to Prestatyn and Rhyl but away from noise, bustle etc. Great holiday. Cottage was amazing and owner very helpful.
A very nice place to stay. Excellent service from Sykes.
Loved the conservatory and the lovely countryside. The pub opposite does super meals and is very handy. The people are all very friendly and the farm down the hill makes lovely jam and marmalade and had fresh tomatoes.
The house was lovely and I wouldn't hesitate in staying there again, it was spacious and comfortable and only a couple of miles to the town of Prestatyn. The lady who owns the cottage is very friendly and helpful.
The cottage was beautiful, very comfortable and well located - near a pub in a scenic village. There was a friendly welcome from the owner and everything was very clean and in excellent order.

We were given Easter eggs when we arrived - thank you! The 'Eagle Child' across the road serves great food.
Great location to tour the North Wales coast, good local pub. Our host was particularly helpful and informative; we will be recommending the cottage to friends and family.

Lovely cottage - one of the best we've ever stayed in.
Mr Mrs Gregory
A beautiful cottage. A stones throw away from the pub, which serves food, so if you do not want to cook anytime there are facilities close by.
Excellent walks from and around the village and fabulous views. Quiet but very pretty, friendly pub opposite. Very quiet spot in a lovely little village.
Cannot fault anything. Excellent place to stay.
Nice quiet location, close to good village pub/restaurant. A good base for all types of interests.
Quiet comfortable home for a week, we especially liked the light conservatory.
Absolutely idyllic - the perfect home from home in the perfect location for exploring that part of Wales
An excellent cottage in a very beautiful location. Really friendly village. The kids didn't want to come home!
It is an excellent location in beautiful hillside surroundings. We particularly enjoyed the varied local walks from the village despite the variable March weather. The cottage was really delightful, in a quiet location yet with the village pub a few steps away across the road.
A fantastic little cottage, central for sights to visit in North Wales. Lovely walks and a haven for peace and quiet. You want for nothing as it is excellently equipped. Will definitely be returning to this cottage. Thanks to the owners for enabling us to have such a perfect few days.
My family and i had great holiday.It`s a beautiful cottage in a beautiful village which is an ideal and convenient location for visiting North Wales.
The owner was so helpful and welcoming when we first arrived. The house was clean and well kept. We had everything we needed for our stay. The conservatory at the rear was a real bonus space. The kids loved the cottage and didn't want to go home at the end of the week. There is however a steep staircase that may not be ideal for people with mobility problems or families with very young children; but our 4 year old coped very well.
The location was ideal. There is a quiet pub opposite that serves fantastic down to earth food at a great price. You can leave the front door of the cottage and do a wonderful circular route across the fields that gives you an amazing view of Prestatyn and the coast.
It is also well placed to explore everything that this part of Wales has to offer. I didn't realise that there was so much to do! We would love to go back.
A beautiful well equipped cottage, ideal for relaxing and good base for visiting local attractions.
Spent week staying in cottage and visiting family over Christmas. A lovely, clean, quiet cottage in a beautiful and ancient North Walian village. Fantastic walks and views on your doorstep. Great pub grub 50m away. Well appointed cottage with modern tasteful decor. Marks and Spencer food hall 15 minutes drive.
It is a traditionally built 18th Century limestone cottage and despite very thick walls, double glazing and modern radiators it was at times a little slow to warm up. So bring slippers and dressing gowns in winter.
This is a fantastic place to stay. The welcome we received from the owner was lovely. The cottage itself is gorgeous, comfortable rooms with everything that you might need. We especially enjoyed sitting in the conservatory overlooking the pretty back garden. There are some great walks in the countryside around the cottage and its easy to get to places of interest. The village pub is just across the road, with a very nice garden too. Highly recommend this place.
We had a lovely week in the cottage which had everything we required for a comfortable stay.
The cottage is within easy reach of the coast and has a lovely walk straight from the front door. Highly recommended
Cottage was in good location with plenty of things to do. The property was clean and in a quiet spot with nice walks.Good golf courses within easy reach.
This was a well equipped cottage full of character we really appreciated the spacious conservatory for meals and playing games etc. I loved the remoteness of the property and the local people were very friendly. The garden was large enough for my children to play in which was important to us.
Pretatyn has a very friendly church called Calvary and the people were welcoming and very friendly this made our stay even more special
cosy cottage in a beautiful location . great for touring north wales.
Very comfortable accomodation which was warm and cosy in the snow! Lovely local pub and friendly church. A great place to take walks from the door and enjoy the Welsh countryside.
This cottage is ideally located, as long as you have a vehicle to get around. The countryside is beautiful and the townspeople are friendly. The cottage itself is beautiful - the owner has thought of all the small details and it is truly home away from home. The conservatory is wonder ful place to enjoy a meal, watching birds on the back lawn, or read a book. Stairway is quite steep but perfectly manageable.
The cottage was great for a family holiday - the cottage was compact but had everything you needed and was very conmfortable. It was in a nice quiet location with a superb pub across the road with great take away food. There was plenty to do around the area - our children loved Chester Zoo and the Welsh Mountain Zoo. It was all great apart from the weather. Can't fault the service from Sykes cottages - very good value for money Thank you

The cottage itself was of a very high standard.clean well equipped and laid out. The location in the village was idyllic.plenty of peace & quiet and the neighbors couldn't have been more friendly. added to that the great pub across the road with good food at reasonable prices. would definitely recommend and hope to stay there again.
