Region: 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.
Town: Located in North Wales in the Conwy Valley within the Snowdonia National Park, Rowen is a tiny hamlet comprising of pretty whitewashed cottages and stunning views. Rowen is a favourite with walkers and ramblers who explore the surrounding moorland and countryside. The Roman Road, which passes above Rowen, leads past many sites of historical interest including the Maen-y-Bardd, a megalithic burial chamber that dates back to 3,500BC. Set high on a hill, it offers some spectacular views along the valley as well as giving evidence of some of the earliest settlements in the area. A little further along you will find the standing stones of Bwlch y Ddeufaen, which carry an estimated date of around 2,000BC. Conwy, a World Heritage Site, is only a short drive away. Conwy has its own castle and Roman walls that almost completely encircle the town. Here you will find Plas Mawr, one of the best preserved medieval townhouses in the UK. As well as numerous National Trust properties, there are also stunning beaches on which to enjoy a variety of water sports, the famous Bodnant Gardens, Victorian Llandudno and the village of Betws-y-Coed, also known as the Gateway to Snowdonia'.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

Very warm, comfortable, well equipped cottage in stunning rural

The cottage was exactly as described, spacious, warm, comfortable and well equipped. It was in a beautiful scenic and rural situation, down narrow lanes, some way from shops etc. and so peaceful. Surrounded by fields of sheep and horses. The only issue was the description of a pub only a short walk away - it was more than a short walk to the little village. We would repeat the holiday and hope for better weather - it was autumn and very wet for our visit.

This is a great place for walkers, cyclists and lovers of wild Wales. The mountains are literally minutes away and well off the beaten track. Conwy, Llanwrst and Rowen are a short drive away. The cottage is spacious, well prepared, clean and relaxing. The best thing is the view from the kitchen window, or the walk up to Drum.
A dream cottage in a beautiful part of Wales

From the minute we walked into the cottage and my daughter said "Oh, this is nice" we knew we were going to love Ty John. We were 4 adults and twin babies and there was plenty of room. All of the rooms were comfortable and the lounge and dining room in particular were full of character. The cottage is set in beautiful countryside, with horses and sheep in the adjoining field and is ideally situated for visiting the nearby tourist spots. The owners were very friendly and available if needed. The only faults are the difficulty in finding the cottage in the first place; better directions are definitely needed and the cleaners were rather pushy and not overly friendly on the day we left.
We had a great stay in a wonderful place!

The house welcomed us, and so did the owners. Very warm welcome, and happy to help us out with our questions.
It was great to sit outside and view the hills, the green trees and meadows and hear the silence. It's a good location for seeing North-Wales. Walks can be made from the doorstep. The Dutch Pancakehouse in Rowen and the pub were great extra's to our stay.
We loved Conwy as our nearest city - for shops, food and drinks, and the castle, music and more. Llandudno was a treat in itself, so was Great Orme.
The cottage was spacious and all necessities were there. There was a great high table to work on, but also a relaxing couch ... so watching television or a DVD was good.
Several books and Dvd's were there to use.
Again - owners were very very helpful and friendly. We hope to be back soon ...

The cottage was big enough to accomodate six of us comfortably, was well equipped, and was beautifully situated for exploring the area around the Snowden Valley. We felt we were visiting friends as we were made so welcome. Our grandchildren loved being able to stroke the horses, the cats and the dogs. Hopefully we shall return for a further visit some time.
Our one criticism was that we had geat difficulty finding the cottage in Rowen as there was nothing to indicate where it actually was and we had to ask directions a couple of times but otherwise it was a wonderful holiday.
