General

  • Adults-only accommodation in the grounds of a quiet north Wales farm
  • A 15-minute drive from Colwyn Bay; 20 minutes from Conwy
  • In a former hayloft with kitchen, woodburner and ensuite bedroom

It's a cosy place to make one's nest is The Nuthatch – this converted hayloft is in peaceful North Wales countryside, close to Colwyn Bay, Conwy and Snowdonia National Park. Sleeping two, it makes a splendid spot for grownup getaways in a secluded farm setting.

The Nuthatch is set over a single spacious floor accessible via six steps. The accommodation's stone walls are exposed both inside and out, and not just for show: those traditional thick walls serve to keep you cool in summer and toasty in winter. There's also a logburning stove on hand to keep you cosy on cooler evenings – the first basket of wood is included, and you can buy others from the site staff as and when you need a top-up.

The layout of the property includes a bright living room and kitchen area, where there's ample room for relaxing on the sofa or cooking up self-catered meals on the handy two-ring hob. The ensuite bedroom comes complete with clean and fresh linen and towels. Wifi is available throughout.

Pentre Du Farm, where The Nuthatch is located, has some pretty special views over the surrounding countryside and is home to a troop of curious cows. It's close to the small village of Llysfaen (a couple of minutes' drive), where there's a local food shop and a takeaway. Mynydd Marian Local Nature Reserve is about 20 minutes away on foot, while the coast is 10 minutes by car.

    Low doorway! It’s not a fault, it’s a warning. There are signs everywhere but I still cracked my head twice! My own stupidity and inattention I suppose.

    Lovely location, quiet. Friendly welcome. Field of cows on the property for nightly fusses was an added bonus.

    The Nuthatch itself was cosy even first thing in the morning. simple kitchen area; sink, hotplate, microwave, fridge. enough plates and cutlery for a few guests.

    Good little shower - is compact but enough room to move around whilst showering.

    Space heater included which was effective.

    Welcome Fudge was amazing but not enough!

    Disliked: 

    Whilst the skylight above the bed was lovely in the morning. Being a light sleeper it was also my downfall. A small blind to pull over the skylight would be an option to suit peoples preferences.

    Unless we missed it; albeit there aren't many places it could have hidden, a small travel iron and board would possibly benefit people if they needed to iron their clothes but for us this wasn't an issue.

    Lovely hayloft, clean, cosy and had everything we needed. Weather was amazing but log burner a bonus after a long day climbing Mount Snowdon in the rain. Views amazing, Steve recommending his highest field to watch the sunset on our 1st night was a treat, perfect view and so relaxing after a long drive. Lovely hayloft, lovely hosts and a perfect holiday 😁

    Steve and sue who own this place are the most nicest people you could come across, they couldn't do enough for us and told us all about the area and how to get to places. The cottage is so clean and the decor is perfect. The views are to die for and the sunsets are amazing. You are even allowed to pet the animals on the farm. We got homemade fudge as a welcome gift and homemade shortbread cookies as we left. I can guarantee you will not be disappointed if you stay here. You certainly get more for what you pay!!. Thank you Steve and sue!!!

    My only problem is I wish there was a normal fridge as there is a camping fridge there but it didn't get cold enough. It does the job but I like my drinks ice cold...I'm fussy like that. Its not a big issue but that is the only thing I can point out cos everything else was perfect

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Avid cyclist? Get set for some time in the saddle along National Cycle Route 5, a long-distance route 15 minutes away from The Nuthatch by bike. The coastal section closest to the property is fully free of cars, but if you don't mind some on-road sections you can pedal all the way down to scenic isle of Anglesey (or drive there in just over half an hour).

Conwy (15 minutes' drive) is perhaps best known for its castle, historic Plas Mawr house and a 16th-century cottage that stakes a credible claim to being the smallest dwelling in all of Great Britain. Following all that sightseeing, head out of town for a spin around Conwy Caernarvonshire Golf Club (20 minutes) or stroll in nearby Snowdonia National Park (from 20 minutes).

After animals? A vast array of marine creatures can be found at SeaQuarium Rhyl (25 minutes), while the Welsh Mountain Zoo (15 minutes) houses a happy collection of land-dwelling beasts. Fond of flora? Bodnant Garden (20 minutes) and the lush grounds of Bodelwyddan Castle (15 minutes) should be your places to go.

Must see

  • Bodelwyddan Castle (10.1 kilometres)
  • Bodnant Garden (10.9 kilometres)
  • Conwy Castle (11.7 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Bodnant Garden (10.9 kilometres)
  • Aberconwy House (11.8 kilometres)
