The cottage is absolutely beautiful. It’s in a peaceful area surrounded by lush woodland and fields. The cottage is decorated in an elegant and simple way and you feel at home as soon as you walk through the door. The welcome pack of bread, milk, butter, local cakes, is a very thoughtful addition as well as the fresh flowers on the dining table. We will definitely be back as it’s the perfect place to unwind and explore the local area.

We have just returned from a week at Gwens cottage , what a fabulous week we’ve had ! The cottage is lovely , the garden areas are wonderful & the views are amazing ! The location of the cottage is perfect for visiting Conway / Llandudno / Betws y coed & Anglesey , it really is a perfect spot !
We made the most of the garden each evening when we got back from our days out, we enjoyed the evening sun looking across at the beautiful beach & sea with a nice glass of wine , it was so peaceful ..
The Co-op in the village is very well stocked & we made a few trips here to get fresh Welsh bread & fresh meat for the many bbqs we did !
We also ate at The Gladstone in Penmenmawr ( 5 mins in a car ) it has a great beer garden & is dog friendly ! Food was really good / great prices & very friendly smiley staff .
We also ate at The Seagrass down by the beach , amazing breakfast, lots specials on the board ! We also visited the cafe right next to the beach & enjoyed delicious cake& coffee.

Outstanding! Beautiful, comfortable cottage, so well equipped. Rainfall shower was brilliant, and the second loo upstairs so handy. Easy access by car to Conwy, Betws-y-Coed and Caernarfon. Can’t recommend this gorgeous cottage enough!

Sandra 2023

We had a truly memorable holiday, everything we were imagining it to be and more. The cottage was lovely, well equipped and with a cupboard full of basic cooking ingredients so for those who want to cook, there’s a variety of spices condiments etc. The welcome pack was much appreciated especially for the fact that we arrived in the early hours of the morning. Gwen provided us with loads of information and was very responsive. Everything is well explained, how appliances work etc. There are some lovely walks from the cottage and a Coop is about 15 minute walk away. We rented a car and there’s ample space for parking. My favourite part was watching the view from the porch while sipping tea and waving to the friendly neighbour walking his dogs. I had a good feeling about this cottage right from the first time it came up on my search and I’m so glad that it was the one we chose. We were a family of 5 and my children loved it too. I would love to return and would definitely stay there again.

We had a wonderful holiday with superb weather. The cottage was cosy with a lovely garden.

Linda, Graham and Charlotte 2022

We had an amazing holiday, the cottage was everything we could have wished for!
It has a lovely cosy homely feel to it which makes you start your holiday from the moment you step through the door.
Spotlessly clean and very well equipped.
The weather was superb and so we made good use of the garden either in the morning or after a day out.
Gwen asked if we had any dietary requirements and when she found out we had people on a Gluten Free diet the welcome pack was beyond expectations, something I have never experienced before!
Gwen was also very helpful before our visit with information on places to visit and local walks.
We had our 3year old grandson with us and the cottage had lots of toys both inside and outside in the shed to keep him happy. The kite was a big hit with him to take to the beach. All in all we had a fabulous holiday and look forward to returning soon.

Amatt and Attlee Family 2022

We loved your quirky cottage. It is full of character and wonderful little items dotted around the place. The cottage is located in a lovely location with great views of the coast and great for dog walks around the village. We were lucky enough to meet both sets of neighbours for our short stay and both families were very friendly and stopped to have a good natter.
While we were here we managed to visit Penrhyn Castle, Penmon lighthouse (which was great to see close up and also from the cottage) Llanberis Slate Museum and train ride with the dog and even a lovely ice cream, Traeth Mawr beach (which was lovely and quieter than Newborough beach). On a number of occasions we headed down to the promenade , we were even lucky enough to see a beautiful sunset. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the future . Thank you.

Johnson Family 2022

My wife and I visited Uwch y Mor for the first time in May. The first thing we noticed was its idyllic location, with stunning views from this beautiful cottage and its garden of fabulous scenery including the mountains and sea. On entry we found the cottage spotlessly clean throughout and well stocked. A few local treats were included in the kitchen.
The village is easily accessible by vehicle, or on foot and has all the necessary pubs, shops and take aways to ensure we enjoyed our stay.
The cottage provided a good base for our walks and excursions, which included Bangor, Llandudno, Portmeirion, Conwy, Betws y Coed and the local nature reserve alongside the seafront of LLanfairfechan.
We had a lovely, relaxing holiday and look forward to returning next year. My wife called the cottage her dream house.

Steve 2022

Our stay at Uwch-y-mor was great. The cottage is lovely, the surrounding areas are stunning and we will definitely be back. It’s so nice to find a holiday cottage that is so homely and well looked after. Gwen was a great host, really helpful – even made some tailored suggestions for things to do during get changeable April weather with 2 young kids.
The cottage is roomy, cosy, well equipped and to a high standard. Lots of nice personal touches and those little things that make a difference. My sons eyes lit up when seeing the box of retro Lego. It seems like Gwen has thought of everything and we cannot fault our stay at Uwch-y-mor.
There’s so much to do, so close by that we will have to return and we’re already looking forward to.
Thank you Dioni and Gwen for a our great holiday and memories .

Lefeuvre Family 2022

I can’t praise Uwch Y Mor highly enough! Our group of four had the most wonderful stay here. We felt completely at home and didn’t want to leave. The cottage is beautiful, incredibly comfortable and well equipped. Spoilt for choice with things to do nearby – lots of footpaths on the hills and mountains behind the cottage and lots to see and do within a 30 minute drive or less. Highly recommend and would love to return! 

Briony 2022

Had a fantastic time in this beautiful cottage, our 21 month granddaughter loved the surprises in the shed, and the box of toys in the house. The view from the garden was lovely and we sat relax and played ever evening. Anglesey was great loved the beach’s had great fun, thank you for everything, made our holiday perfect just what we needed.

Tina 2022

We enjoyed a fabulous short break in this superb cottage in July. One of the best cottages we’ve ever rented, it felt instantly comfortable and welcoming. Brilliant decor, facilities and features, and a view of the Straits and Anglesey that you could never tire of. Ground floor bedroom and bathroom ideal for our older guest, and sitting out on the raised patio watching sunset form over Penmon is unforgettable. We look forward to staying here again, thank you. 

Saunders family 2022

It has been a joy to get away from home for a week, in such a beautiful part of the world.

The cottage was spotless, had everything we could need and was very comfortable, we slept very well! I loved the shower, and the log burner was very easy to use and made us toasty warm on the evening we lit it.
We had mixed weather which made for some dramatic views over the Menai Strait and up the mountains. The nature reserves along the coast from Llanfairfechan were an unexpected pleasure – we have done lots of walks – would recommend Newborough beach and Llanddwyn, so beautiful, take a picnic!!
Aber Falls was a lovely walk, the oak woodland is full of birds.
If you enjoy visiting gardens, Bodnant is on another level! Highly recommend.
We had a full and relaxing week, the goodies left were delicious and well appreciated. THANK YOU! 

Logan Family 2021

A much needed relaxing break. Felt at home the moment we walked in – the cottage is beautiful, warm and cosy. Thank you Gwen for the goodies and the walk suggestions prior to our visit, so we could plan. I love a plan and a list!! Many thanks 

Jane & John  2021

Fab stay! Cottage is wonderful and very cosy.
Aberfalls is beautiful as is stack lighthouse.
Thank you so much.

Evans Family 2019

A socially distanced perfect holiday!
Wow! We have had the ‘BEST’ time in this wonderful cottage. As a family of 5 with 3 young children we have found everything we need and really enjoyed time on a great Llanfairfechan beach – what a hidden gem it is here! The boys enjoyed using the kite and our little one enjoyed feeding the ducks too. As farmers we of course visited the local butcher and enjoyed lots of home cooked meals! My parents joined us for 3 nights and were also VERY impressed!
The food in the cupboards, flowers and Welsh food is a lovely touch. We have enjoyed visiting Aber Falls, Stack lighthouse and Zip World Forest for some high ropes and rollercoaster fun. They also enjoyed the lego!
The views have been spectacular, particularly the sunsets in between the thunderstorms. The weather has been soooo hot! (unusual for this country).
We will certainly be back in the future and a huge thank you Gwen for all your help leading up to our stay.
Diolch yn fawr iawn!

Watkins Family 2020

We all had a lovely stay, the cottage and surrounding areas were stunning. We went to Anglesey. Jenny and Marnie went into the smallest house, and we all had fish & chips and sat on the front to eat them. We also went to Colwyn Bay, which was really nice for Marnie to stretch her little legs on the beach. Last night (Wed) me and Jen went to the pub for a couple of hours and had a nice time talking to a few locals, although the walk back (stagger) was a bit scary Ha Ha.Thanks again for letting us stay Gwen, it was brill. We will def try to book again.
Best wishes, Martin, Jen, Sarah Marnie X
P.S. Thank you so much for the welcome basket, it was much appreciated.

Martin, Jenny Sarah and Marnie 2019

The cottage is absolutely charming combining an old world charm with all the modern amenities you could possibly need! The views are beautiful, quiet surroundings, had all the board games and movies you could want for a rainy day and we were greeted with delicious Welsh products and a homemade cake! Would recommend for anyone that is looking for a charming and authentic place to stay! 

Tudor 2019

The cottage was warm and cosy and perfect for our needs. It was lovely to have a well stocked larder to call on if we had forgotten anything. And the welcome gift of Welsh produce was very thoughtful. The location was perfect for exploring this part of Wales, but the highlight for us was sitting on the terrace and enjoying the sea view with a G&T! 

Phil 2019

We came with our two ageing parents and it was suitable – one in the downstairs bedroom and one in the twin bedroom.
They could not praise you enough for the cleanliness and warmth of the cottage.
All our needs were catered for and thank you for the extra welsh food items – a lovely thought.
Phil and I enjoyed the walks in the morning, Aber Falls, one directly behind the cottage and two larger ones on the North Wales Coastal Path.
In the afternoons there was plenty to see locally, for the older guests:
Penrhyn Castle, Conwy Bay, Anglesey and Llandudno.
A beautiful cottage and fabulous scenery.
Thank you.

Annette, Phil  2019

A wonderful week was had in this fantastic 5* cottage, very homely and comfortable. Wonderful location, sea views from the front and hill views from the back. Ideal location for visiting Anglesey,Conwy,Llandudno and Llanberis. Lots of hillside walks. Kitchen was well equipped with all you would need. Lovely welcome pack which was yummy.
Thank you.

Karen 2019

Such a beautiful cottage with amazing sea views. Everything possible included to make your stay comfortable, with a delightful welcome pack and fully stocked condiments. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay which was really well placed to enjoy the fabulous scenery and places of North Wales. Will definitely be going again! 

Rod and Michelle 2019

Thank you so much for everything, a real home from home! we will be back! My daughters loved it and thank you for introducing them to Welsh cakes. All our love. 

Thomas Family 2019

Gwen your cottage is perfect, we had a lovely stay. Thank you for such a warm welcome .

Helen 2019

What a lovely cottage! Fantastically appointed and very well positioned. Had some traditional Welsh February weather but didn’t stop us visiting Caernarfon Castle (brilliant) and Penrhyn. A fun walk in the general direction of Aber Falls and some car trekking through the Llanberis Pass. Looking forward to our return visit. Thank you so much for your attention to details and esp the Welsh cakes! Yum! 

Pearce Family 2019

We had an amazing time at the cottage. It is homely, has a soul and is warmly decorated. A true gem to spend a week away and relax. For anyone reading this we suggest exploring Anglesey, Snowdonia National Park but also venture further afield to cities such as Chester and Liverpool. Gwen thank you so much for allowing us to get to know Wales through your cottage. We will be back. 

Eugene 2019

We’ve had a most relaxing week with our two boys aged 8 and 10. The cottage was clean, cosy and very well equipped and it was lovely to receive the welcome flowers and treats on arrival – thank you. Lots to do and see, the views are wonderful here and so peaceful and tranquil. We had lovely walks on Anglesey and went to great Orm and castle in Caernarfon. The boys enjoyed our week here with the weather being kind to us. Beds very comfy, which always a bonus! Would definitely recommend. Thanks again.

Hastie Family 2018

We had a lovely two weeks in the cottage. The weather was fantastic and the view from the cottage especially in the evening was amazing. We visited all sorts of places but Llanberis and the lakeside train was lovely. thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Mark 2019

I have had the most delightful week’s holiday here and thank you once again for letting me stay. The cottage was clean, warm, welcoming and I’ve found it all very comfortable. I ate my breakfast every day in the little porch/conservatory. The views are just wonderful. It certainly is a magical place especially when you catch the sunset and the lights fade over the sands. How many 1000s or even millions of people before us have stood on this spot and watched that breathtaking sight.

M Charlesworth 2018

Fabulous holiday in scenic North Wales. Thank you for a very comfortable stay at Uwch-y-Môr. The
cottage was warm, well equipped, comfy beds and cosy fire. Sights we would recommend – South
Stack, Llandudno, Beaumaris and Ocean’s was a great choice of eatery. We hope to return and
thank you so much and make even more special memories in Wales with our family.
