Just perfect


By Gillian E. on 15-Oct-2019

We were a party of six adults and two young children celebrating a 70th birthday at Y Gorlan. It was just perfect. The house was very clean, extremely well equipped with a wide range of good quality pots, pans and crockery as well as toiletries and larder items. It is situated in a lovely village close to Conwy and the railway station at Llandudno Junction. The extras like tea bags and dishwasher tablets were much appreciated and we certainly enjoyed the prosecco!

We got the impression that the owners really wanted us to be comfortable and enjoy ourselves. Communication was faultless and the Handbook has to be one of the most comprehensive I have ever seen. Thank you very much Annette and Peter.

Snowdon trip


By Chandrahas B. on 08-Jul-2019

Y Gorlan is a beautiful property in a small and friendly town of Rowen in the Snowdon National Park area. The house is self contained and we got a magnificent host in Annette. If we get a chance we will definitely come back again and highly recommend this for friends or families looking for a nice quiet trip to Northern Wales with beautiful views and walking paths all around you and a cute Pub right next door!

Snowden weekend.


By Joanne B. on 30-May-2019

All 4 couple enjoyed our stay here greatly and will return.
Beautiful location and great to have lovely gardens too. Pub at the end was a great addition.
Perfect for us to have 4 double bedrooms although the triple bedroom is a little on the snug side!
Everything you need for a perfect weekend away.

Home away from home


By Kylie R. on 06-Jan-2019

The advice and guidance given to us by Annette before hand was incredibly useful. We explored places we would never have found without this. Aber Falls, the local walks through fields, Conwy Castle, and climbed Snowdon on the miners' track. Such an incredible week - we have truly started the year in the very best way.

a great house for a few days in the hills


By Nancy C. on 07-Jul-2018

we stayed at y gorlan for 3 nights with a few family members there were 10 of us and the house was ample in size and in accesories. There were ensuites to every room which was a big plus and the location is perfect just 10 mins to conwy and great for walks of all levels around the house. The 2 bikes that were provided by the host was also great and had some lovely bbq is the huge rear garden . Would definitely come back again!!

Perfect for a family get together


By Suzie W. on 26-Jun-2018

The house was set in a lovely rural village with wrap around gardens that both dogs absolutely loved! It was tastefully furnished and very clean with a generous yummy welcome pack. Annette and Peter were extremely helpful and clearly love being hosts.

Beautiful well equipped house.


By Anne G. on 03-Nov-2017

Absolutely wonderful for family gatherings with 4 ensuite doubles and a double sofa bed. Everything you could want is there including a kennel for dogs - which we didnt have but if we had then it was there.
A lovely welcome from Annette with flowers, wine and a few basic food essentials.
