The cottage is in a fabulous setting. It is well equipped and comfortably furnished. The owners are lovely and went over and above to make us feel welcome and ensure we had everything we needed, including checking we were warm enough.
Just amazing, perfectly clean and very spacious. Perfect for 6 of us and a dog.
Cottage beautifully appointed although road up a little challenging for some may be. Layout and functionality brilliant although being a coffee lover .. did hope for a coffee machine in kitchen :) Hubby adored the log burner, panoramic views stunning, look forward to revisiting again.
Reply from: Quality Cottages Team
Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy to hear that you had such a fantastic stay The Farmhouse at Gelli Newydd - the owner has done such a fantastic job to make the cottage so welcoming and cosy, especially with the fireplace, and always goes above and beyond with lovely welcome gifts, as well. We very much look forward to welcoming you back to the property again soon!
The Farmhouse is stunning from the moment of pulling into the drive, the owners have created a magical space with high-quality finishes and thoughtful touches, we switched off and settled very quickly, it was sad leaving. It is in a wonderful spot with easy access to pretty much all of North Wales by car. The only downside to the property is the amazing garden only had lighting at the back door, which makes picking up after your dog very hard in the dark - make sure you have a very good torch. The rest of the grounds and outbuildings are very well lit. Additionally, it needs to be made clearer before booking that dogs are not allowed on furniture or upstairs, we have a dog with (vocal) separation anxiety so this was hard at night. We had a fabulous stay and would definitely book again.
If you've ever visited a holiday cottage before, you most likely have seen a guestbook in the property for guests to leave a review for others when they arrive. Each of the following comments was lovingly left by people just like you in the guestbook left at The Farmhouse at Gelli Newydd.
Such a wonderful property in a stunning location. We've had lots of adventures exploring locally - we all loved the abandoned mine! The kids of course loved zip world but their favourite was kayaking lake Geirionydd down the road. So much to do - we'll definitely be back! x
Thank you Lisa & Martin for a great base for our holiday. Came up to family in Llanwrst. we'll be back! A lovely conversion of the farm buildings - finished to a high standard. The barn was very private with a lovely sitting area outside and stunning views down the valley to Crimpiau (& a bit of Moel Siabod!) Great walks from the door - we walked to view Trifan and the worsehae behind.
We had a wonderful time at Gelli Newydd. The house and setting are beautiful. Lots to do in the area for all the family and we have been so lucky with the weather! A real home from home. We hope to return. Best wishes x.

There is something for everyone right here in the immediate area, with activities to exhilarate and quench the thirst of every thrill-seeker. Take to the trees with friends and family at Zip World Forest to tackle ropes, nets and swings strung through the canopies, or the Fforest Coaster toboggan run and the new Plummet 2, a pulse-pounding 100ft/30m drop through a trapdoor that's the closest things to free fall this side of an aeroplane.

Lakes & Mountains from the door
Trefriw is blessed with two of the most spectacular lakes (Geirionydd and Crafnant). Both lakes lie in the most stunning surroundings and offer different facilities. Geirionydd offers watersports for everyone (paddle and powerboating) whilst Crafnant is a much more peaceful environment. The community lead project Trefriw Trails has 8 waymarked trails which are suited to all ages and abilities for walking and cycling.
The Fairy Falls - Trefriw
Take a look at these beautiful waterfalls, a hidden gem in Trefriw, just a very short uphill walk up the path opposite the Fairy Falls Inn.
The River Crafnant, tumbles down from mountain lakes, provides the power to run the machines at Trefriw Woollen Mill, which have been producing traditional Welsh bedspreads for over 150 years. You can take a tour of the mill and watch its clattering, impossibly complicated machinery blending, straightening, spinning, winding and weaving the wool, and then pop into the mill shop to peruse the highly desirable produce.
With so many MTB centres on our doorstep, mountain bikers are spoilt for choice. From tranquil forest trails to serious downhill, there is a route for everyone. Two miles from the Marin Trail, Trefriw lies at the very heart of the mountain biking community and offers MTB visitors to the area the chance to refuel and relax.
In a nutshell, this handsome, historic town, is capital of the verdant Vale of Conwy. Llanrwst's famous three-arched bridge across the Conwy, Tu Hwnt i'r Bont is one of the most photographed spots in Wales. It leads across the clear-flowing waters to a beautifully restored 15th-century house now owned by the National Trust. History is thick on the ground wherever you look.
The town has an attractive range of independent shops selling everything from books to artisan and specialist foods.
Snowdon Mountain Railway
If you don´t feel like hiking, you can catch the train to the peak of Wales´ highest mountain. A brilliant way to experience the jaw-dropping landscapes, it is an unforgettable journey.
Beaches and Coastal Paths
With miles of seashore wishing easy reach, you can enjoy wooded estuary walks, large sandy beaches, dramatic cliff paths, secluded bays and traditional Welsh harbour towns and villages. Between the Conwy and Dyfi estuaries, discover the wide and fast waters of the Menai Strait on a speed boat, the spectacular Llyn Peninsula and the alluring mountain-backed areas of Cardigan Bay around Harlech. The possibilities for quiet days without seeing a soul or family days out are endless.
Food & Drink
The pristine countryside, rivers and seas are the source of fine, fresh food and drink and part of your Welsh experience is to discover the wide variety of quality food and drink producers in North Wales. Locally there are a host of restaurants, Cafe's and pubs, takeaways and fast food outlets. Llandudno and other destinations in Conwy County have a wide variety of food types on offer, including European, Indian, Chinese and Thai, as well as more traditional Welsh and British menus.
