Stabal-Y-Gwedd Coastal Cottage description

Holiday home
Stabal-y-Gwedd is an end-terrace cottage on a working farm, in Dolwen 3 miles from Abergele. There is a double room with and en-suite shower, a further double and a twin room. There is also a family bathroom. Downstairs is an open plan living area with fitted kitchen, dining area and sitting area. Outside is a communal courtyard as well as a private patio area and off road parking for each cottage. Stabal-y-Gwedd is in an ideal location for touring this lovely part of Wales.

The lovely seaside resort of Abergele stands on the beautiful North Wales coastline and is uniquely positioned between the impressive Vale of Clwyd and the lovely Conwy Valley. Well known for the imposing Gwych Castle, which dominates the town, and its vast sandy beach, the whole area offers safe and secure bathing along with excellent water sport facilities. There is a coastal cycle path which runs alongside the Abergele seafront, whilst walking enthusiasts are amply catered for with the famous Offa's Dyke pathway. The Clwydian Hill Range and stunning Betws-y-Coed, which is known as the "gateway to Snowdonia" are all just a stone's throw away. The three historic castles of Rhuddlan, Conwy and Caernarvon are sights not to be missed and the quaint Victorian town of Llandudno offers quality shops, fabulous restaurants and a dry ski slope. Not to be missed is the exciting cable car rides over the Great Orme. This area offers plenty to do at any time of year making it a great place for short breaks as well as longer holidays.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

Most superb, met by our lovely hostess and shown round. In the kitchen we were met by by a lovely welcome basket of lovely Welsh foods. Can't fault this holiday property at all.

The owners were tremendous, helpful and friendly. They took the time and trouble to explain about the farm to us. I have never met nicer or more accommodating owners. The location is perfect, near everything and far enough to be in the country. I cannot recommend this place enough.

The cottage is a lovely barn conversion with a well laid out and comfortable interior. The location is nice and rural but only a few minutes drive to local amenities.The owners had provided a nice welcome pack including wine, bara-brith and some lovely home made chutney.

Great setting, well placed to explore the area, well equipped. Very friendly and helpful owners, welcome basket was a lovely addition. The weather was kind to us and we had a lovely time.

Fantastic location, away from the hustle and bustle, it enables you to experience Welsh farm living. My daughters loved seeing the horses, Shetland pony, the calves and Snowy the farm cat. All this helped to make the stay more memorable. The cottage is lovely, just as it looks in the pictures; we all relaxed easily and it felt like home from home. The owners were really helpful and left a welcome basket of goodies which was well received. The cottage is a great base to explore the North of Wales and is handy for the A55 which takes you to the coastal resorts. I am already recommending this to friends.

Cottage was great, more than expected. Lovely setting, a very comfortable homely place. Lovely welcome basket too.

We had a fantastic holiday. The cottage is beautiful and is surrounded by lovely countryside. It is situated in a remote area away from the towns and villages, but only 10 minutes to the nearest town for Tesco's.

The accommodation was excellent.
Mrs Krause

We loved the location and ambience. Our hosts were lovely and very helpful. The cottage was cosy, very clean and comfortable, and it suited our needs perfectly. Our daughter loved the farm animals, especially watching the calves being fed.

The cottage was in a peaceful location. Llandudno, Conwy, Snowdonia were relatively close by so we didn't have to spend too much time travelling by car. This is the third time we have used Sykes Cottages and have always been impressed by the high standard of the properties.
Mrs Dickinson

The owners have converted this property to a very high standard. It was beautifully furnished and decorated, luxury accommodation. The farm is in a peaceful location but only a few miles from lovely beaches and the coastline of Colwyn Bay and Llandudno. There was a lovely welcome basket left as well full of local food. All in all a fantastic holiday and we will definitely return.

Excellent hospitality. Peace and quiet. Plenty of space. Very accessible to places of interest in North Wales. One of the best places we have stayed in and owners are to be congratulated.

Great cottage, very well presented and in a great location. Very peaceful and beautiful surroundings. Perfect place for couples and families alike to use as a base to relax or tour the many attractions all within an hour of here.
May 2013
Great cottage well positioned for visits to most attractions in Snowdonia.
Mrs Shuler

The property owners, who lived in the farm next door, could not have been more helpful. We were invited to help feed the baby lambs and calves one evening. The property itself was one of the best we've stayed at - we would highly recommend it and will probably go back again.
Mr O'Neill
July 2012
We had a fantastic stay here, it was very quiet considering we were right next to the working farm. The family kindly left us drinks and food on our arrival which is always a nice touch. The overall appearance of the cottage was great and had a warm, homely feeling to the place. Would highly recommend. Having a car is recommended as you're in the middle of the country! I would go back in a heartbeat!

The accommodation was clean and very modern and the welcome pack of goodies and essentials was a lovely surprise. We were welcomed and shown round the property and told if there was anything we needed just to give the owners a shout. Highly recommended

Stunning location, really felt like we got away from it all. Farm based cottage which enabled our daughters (aged 6 & 8) to see the horses, Shetland pony, calves, sheep and Snowy the farm cat which added to the memories. The owners were really helpful and left a welcome basket of welsh goodies which was well received. When the weather was sunny we were able to sit out in the front garden (individual patio with picnic table and shared grass area with other cottages) and play ball games on the grassed area. The local beach is a 2 mile drive away and the cottage is an ideal base for exploring North Wales as it is close to the A55. The cottage was like home from home and was really comfortable and finished to a high standard. Three bedrooms, two with double beds (one ensuite) and a single room, plenty of space for us all. Kitchen is well equipped with dish washer and washing machine, dining area and comfortable sitting area. This was our first visit to Wales and we loved it. Much quieter than the Lake District and stunning scenery. We would love to return as there is much more we want to see and I am already recommending it to friends.

We hired the two adjacent properties for a week at the end of July. The cottages were just right for our family of eleven. The children's ages were between one year and fourteen. The open plan design was perfect for group dining and the barbecue facility was handy too. We were made very welcome on arrival with a delicious basket of local goodies. The cottages were well appointed, tastefully furnished and very clean with comfortable bedrooms If there is a downside it is the fact that there is only a tiny patch of grass outside the cottages and a rather bleak looking patch of concrete.

One of the loveliest holiday's we have ever had. The Family who run the cottages and adjoining farm were very helpful. Our daughter loved the Farm Cat "Snowy" and also seeing all the other animals. It is slightly off the beaten track as regards to location, and the phone signal for us wasn't too great (Orange network), but to be honest we booked a holiday to get away from it all and having no signal most of the time and being a 10 minute drive from local amenities meant we had some peace and quiet. The Cottage itself is beautiful, and very well equipped. We also had a lovely welcome basket on arrival with lots of little welsh luxuries. We will be returning.
May 2013
This is a great family cottage with everything you need. A fantastic welcome basket waiting for us, with local produce, as well as a warm welcome from the owners. Everything about the cottage was to a very high standard - the shower in the ensuite was particularly good. We stayed in March so saw lots of lambs, and even got to help bottle feed a couple. The location is very convenient - just 5min from the coast, but with a remote feeling. We visited The Welsh Mountain Zoo in Conwy, Bodnant Gardens and on a wet day found a great playbarn in Old Colwyn. March is not the best time for the beach but there are lots nearby. The owners live next door in the farm and were very helpful. We'd certainly think about going back again.
September 2012
Very clean and well appointed cottage. Beautiful and very useful welcome pack. Very comfortable and spacious. Will definitely be going back again.

If you are looking for a well appointed cottage in north Wales in a relaxing setting, look no further! This is a comfortable cottage with everything you could need. The welcome pack is a lovely touch from the very friendly owners. Children will love being close to the animals.
