Our stay at Castelview cottage in Conwy was great! We so very much enjoyed the town of Conwy with its gorgeous castle and town walls as well as it beautiful view of North Wales! The cottage was very comfortable and cosy and the two balconies made it perfect! Finally, Jackie was very welcoming and very easy to communicate with! (we also recommend the Albion which is a great pub!) — Laura via Airbnb, 13 Jun 2017
Jackie, thank you for the wonderful opportunity of staying in your wonderful, and very comfy, Castleview Cottage. It gave us the chance to be close to family and in walking distance of everything in the town of Conwy. Not to mention the stairs to access the town walls was just across the street. Again thank you. I may be back.

My husband and I spent 5 nights at Castleview Cottage. Perfect location for all we wanted to see in Northern Wales. Conwy is a beautiful little town with lots to see and do. The cottage itself was a wonderful treat and beautifully decorated. The only problem I had with the cottage was watching tv in the corner. Just glad we weren't shut in all day so we didn't have the tv on too much. Thank you for all the nice touches and all the easy directions for entering the house and turning on appliances. — Bonnie, 12 May 2017
Stayed over Easter Weekend in the lovely Castleview Cottage - what a gem. So inviting and welcoming from the tea tray left with biscuits for our arrival to the beautiful views from the balcony while having breakfast and the open fire to keep cosy of an evening. We love Conwy and have been staying for the last three years and now we have found Castleview Cottage we will be booking again. We have a teenage girl who was thrilled with the great broadband as well as the dog who enjoys visits to the local watering holes which are most welcoming to four legged friends. Thanks Jackie for your attention to detail and making our stay so enjoyable! — Jo Wiggins, 20 Apr 2017
Had a great time in Conwy, great location and lovely house! Jackie was wonderful and extremely helpful in recommending things to do and see. — Nelly , 17 Mar 2017
We had a wonderful break in Conwy. The cottage was spotlessly clean and was as lovely as the pictures suggest. Jackie was extremely helpful and gave lots of suggestions of things to do. We would like to visit again soon. — Jane, 19 Feb 2017
Superb cottage in a great location close to town. Cottage has everything you need! We enjoyed a 2 night break which was easily organised by Jackie.
Very quaint, extremely comfortable and reasonably priced!! Thanks!!

We have just spent a lovely weekend at Castleview Cottage and could not fault it.

The cottage is cosy and has everything needed for a relaxing break. The location is excellent, with great pubs (The Albion was our favourite)and places to eat just minutes away.

Jackie is a pleasure to deal with and made sure that we had everything we needed for a great weekend.

Hope to be back very soon - thank you!

We spent 3 lovely days in Jackie's home and it was an amazing experience. The house was exactly as how it looked liked in the pictures -- very tidy, spacious yet still very cozy. The village ambiance provided just the right relaxing feeling one needs for a quick getaway break. It had nice pubs and restaurants just walking distance from the house that served the best meals, at an affordable price. Jackie was very accessible and highly responsive from pre-booking and made sure everything was set for our visit. Will definitely come back and highly recommend this place for others to visit. Thank you Jackie! — Veronica , 07 Dec 2016
We spent three nights at Castleview over half term (18-21 October 16), and had a truly wonderful time. We are a family of four, including a six year old and a rather scruffy terrier, and we're looking for somewhere in Conwy that was close to the town and dog friendly. We couldn't have found a better spot. The cottage was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and in the most fantastic location, within the town walls and really close to shops, pubs and the harbour.
The owners Jackie and Jackie, were very helpful from the outset, sending friendly, informative emails regarding our booking, and giving us tips on how best to enjoy the area. As fellow dog owners, they understood how important our furry family member is and told us how dog friendly Conwy can be, giving us a long list of establishments happy to accept her, which saved a lot of time when we visited.
As we were arriving on Tuesday, and they had no booking for Monday night, they even arranged for the cottage to ready early, so we could settle in as soon as we arrived. The cottage had everything you could need for a short break, including all those little things I usually forget, ( condiments, washing up liquid etc...) we had milk and biscuits waiting for our first cuppa, and logs to get the fire going, bliss!
Conwy is a super little town, very friendly and full of interesting shops, nice places to eat and all very accessible. We walked the castle walls, visited nearby Llandudno and walked our poor dog for miles around the beautiful countryside. The trip was just not long enough though, so we will need to return soon, and very much hope to use Castleview as our base when we return.

Lovely week in Conwy in the lovely cottage. It was a perfect location for us . The Cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. Thank You — Moira Duffty, 25 Sep 2016
We had a lovely stay in Conwy. The cottage was just what we wanted and had some excellent views across the town. Jackie was very helpful and everything about the trip went extremely smoothly. — Matt, 13 Jul 2016
The castle view cottage is just perfect. The location is amazing. Jackie is so responsive. And Conwy is a gem. By all means: stay here. Don't miss Snowdonia! — Andrew, 01 Jul 2016
Jackie's cottage is in a lovely location and was a pleasure to stay in. The cottage was great, and especially nice to sit out in the sun for breakfast. The views of Conwy and the bay are stunning. Everything was ready for our arrival and the stay was such as ease. — Dominic, 20 May 2016
What a lovely cottage. Beautiful and right in the center of town. A perfect spot to walk the castle walls or take a stroll along the Marine walk. The cottage is cozy and as beautiful as the pictures. A real home away from home where you can relax and enjoy the views from the back patio! Highly recommended. — Amber, 19 Apr 2016
A lovely house in an extremely convenient location. Lots to see and do in Conwy and the surrounding areas, and Jackie was so helpful with her hints and tips. She made the stay very easy! — Lucy, 28 Mar 2016
Perfect accommodation in a perfect location. Jackie was a great host and communication was always quick and helpful. Would certainly recommend for anyone thinking of visiting Conwy. — Phil G, 06 Mar 2016
Had a fantastic time at Castleview Cottage. All was as described and the views are just amazing. The weather was turned on for us so we made use of the balcony too. Thanks Jackie, highly recommended. — Anna Smith, 02 Mar 2016
The cottage was exactly as shown on this site - it was quite delightful with the most beautiful setting and views especially from the upstairs bedroom! The balconies looked lovely but sadly it was rainy when we visited so we did not make use of them but maybe next time? Very comfortable and what a great location for walking all over the beautiful village of Conwy. The residents of the village were some of the most friendly people I've ever come across so we had a wonderful time. Thank you! — Carol, 23 Nov 2015
Lovely cottage, wonderful town
We found castle view cottage to be very comfortable and homely. The views are amazing, the kitchen and bathroom are a great size, clean, modern and fully equipped. Being so close to the historic walls was a unique experience. Conwy is a delightful town with plenty of interesting shops and places to eat and drink. We visited the harbour every day as it was only a five minute walk away and a great place to watch the world go by. We had never been to Wales before but we couldn't have made a better choice and will certainly be back. Our dog had a brilliant time too. The owners were very good with very clear communication and they made us feel very welcome.

— Carol, 01 Nov 2015
The cottage was fantastic, very clean and spacious, enjoyed the gift pack! the location was amazing, Conwy is a beautiful town with amazing castle. Would definitely stay there again — Mark, 11 Oct 2015
Jackie was an excellent host and proactively gave us all the information we needed about the cottage and the surroundings. The cottage was beautiful, peaceful and quiet. We were there with two kids (1 and 3 years old) and the sit out was a place we could enjoy our evenings after the kids were down. I would recommend this to people who are looking at exploring the area and people like us who used this as a base to explore Snowdonia. If you are only going to visit Conwy - then this place is bang in the middle and you really dont need a car! We hope to be back here someday. — Mathew Joseph, 02 Oct 2015
Eine ganz besondere Unterkunft zwischen Bergen und Meer

Wir hatten das Vergnügen, eine Woche in dem Ferienäuschen in Conwy zu verbringen und haben diese Zeit sehr genossen. Die Ausstattung lässt keine Wünsche offen, doch der besondere Charme des Hauses liegt in seiner Lage gleich neben der Stadtmauer mit Blick über Conwy bis zur Burg. Auch die Lage des Ortes selbst ist sehr günstig. Die Vielfalt der gut zu erreichenden Ausflugsziele ist sehr hoch, die Anbindung an das öffentliche Verkehrsnetz ist sehr gut und auch zu Fuß kann man viel unternehmen. Darüber hinaus haben wir beste Erfahrungen mit der Organisation gemacht. Jackie kümmert sich schnell, gründlich und effizient um alles, was nötig ist. Wir können das Haus in jeder Hinsicht empfehlen.

“Beautiful Cottage with Everything Included to Completely Enjoy Our Time in North Wales”
We spent part of our honeymoon at the Castleview Cottage and in North Wales. Everything was great - the cottage was beautiful and included everything we needed to completely enjoy our stay and North Wales was absolutely beautiful to visit. We would absolutely love to spend more time in North Wales and would definitely choose to stay again at Castleview Cottage.
— TripAdvisor, 20 Jun 2015
We absolutely loved the cottage! It is cosy and welcoming. The kitchen is well stocked with household essentials and Jackie even left some biscuits and tea for refreshments when we arrived.

The cottage has the most amazing views of Conwy - feet from the castle walls, down to the castle and across the bay. I think the balcony made our entire stay - having bubbly at night, and breakfast and coffees in the morning sun!

We can't recommend the cottage enough! Enjoy your stay :)
— Asbournes, 20 Feb 2015
Jackies cottage is fantastic. Just a very short walk from the train station and nestled in the corner of the castle wall. Super clean, well stocked kitchen with tons of natural light, nice towels and a comfortable bed. The decorations were spot on and made the cottage super cozy and beachy. Loved it! Nice touches were the fire log and biscuits and milk provided. Lots of books, dvds and information about the area and things to do. If you want to stay in Conwy and explore the coast of Wales I would highly recommend this cottage. On top of that Jackie accommodated our last minute booking and request for late check out. She was very easy to get a hold of. Missing the cute cottage already. — OwnersDirect, 20 Jan 2015
Amazing and characterful cottage
This property is ideally located for exploring Conwy and and lovely area surrounding it in North Wales. Couldn't have wished for a better place to stay.
Thank you!

SUCH CARE AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND COMFORT
Perfectly matched the description. This cottage was most comfortable and easy to live in. Loads of storage and additional extras; the owners obviously care very much about the experience of the "holiday maker". Loved it to bits. The owners should be very proud.

Location absolutely central; much to do and see within either walking distance or a short drive away. Would like to re-visit Conwy during the spring or summer.

Thank you to the owners!

Lovely cottage in a great location. Easy access to all local attractions. Would recommend to any visitors to Conwy. Fantastic base to explore North Wales — Jo & Cath, 24 May 2014
Delightful Cottage
The cottage was lovely, well equipped and just as described. It was clean and well looked after. Communication with Jackie when booking was good and her communication was excellent. We fell in love with Conwy and the surrounding area - there was so much to do. We loved walking Conwy town walls, visiting the castle, suspension bridge and Plas Mawr. We also enjoyed a trip into Snowdonia, visiting aqueducts in the Llangollen/Chirk area, and a trip to Anglesey as well as visiting the Great Orme via cable car. Due to having a dog and two children we didn't eat out much but cooked in the cottage it treated ourselves to local fish and chips.

Fantastic cottage in perfect location
Highly recommend this cottage. Lovely decor, well maintained and spotlessly clean. Comfy beds, open fire and proximity to excellent pubs and restaurants make this the perfect spot for a relaxing break. Nice welcome touches too, with tea, coffee and biscuits waiting for us :-
— Philip H , 03 Dec 2013
We've just got back from a week at Castleview cottage and could easily have stayed another, it's a lovely little cottage with a home from home feeling to it in every room, the view from the roof terrace is amazing & especially at night with the castle all lit up. There's lots to do in and around Conwy with visits to the castle, plas mawr house, aberconwy house and lovely walk to Conwy marine where there's a beach, an hour's drive away is Black rock sands (Porthmadog) where you can drive onto the sands (take a packed lunch or bbq as you can stay on the beach till 8pm). Back in Conwy theres lots of lovely coffee shops and a trip to the Albion pub just round the corner is a must visit, with a week of sunshine this topped off a fantastic week away and would love to come back again, Castleview cottage is a little gem within the walls of a Conwy. — Thomas H, 20 Sep 2013
Super Lage, gute Ausstattung, da würde ich wiedern
Das Cottage liegt wunderbar zentral in Conwy innerhalb der Stadtmauer. Man kann alles zu Fuß erreichen. Der Ort selbst bietet schon viel, in der näheren Umgebung findet man etwas für jeden: Wandern, Reiten, Schwimmen,…
Wir (2 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder) hatten einen wunderbaren Urlaub und werden bestimmt noch einmal kommen.
— Ruth D, 16 Jul 2013
A haven inside the town wall
Castleview cottage has been sympathetically modernised and is furnished attractively. The owner was very helpful and friendly and answered my questions regarding the cottage swiftly and accurately.
The cottage was clean on arrival and it was nice to have useful basics provided such as washing up liquid, dishcloth, tea towels and toilet paper along with tea, coffee, milk and biscuits for refreshments on arrival.
We particularly enjoyed sitting on the roof terrace for breakfast and pre-dinner drinks and nibbles whilst interacting with some of the visitors walking the town walls.
We ate out on one occasion at Amelie's in the High Street and, although there was only one vegetarian dish to choose from, it was the best meal out I have had for some time.
I would recommend Conwy as a great base for visiting scenic Snowdonia and Anglesey and, closer to home, we also had a lovely day at Llandudno using the tram and cable car to visit The Great Orme.

Jackie...I am sorry that we did not include a note in the book, as our stay was absolutely the best (well except for the weather on several days!). But the apartment is perfect and it could not have been better in any respect. Conwy is well located for forays into all areas of North Wales, and the apartment was perfectly equipped for our needs. The location within this splendid small town, the castle in the distance, one of the best "wall walks" in Europe.... What more could a person want? Thanks so much for contributing to our happy week in Wales! — Madeleine G, 24 May 2013
We really enjoyed our stay in Castleview Cottage. The cottage is very pretty, beautifully decorated and maintained and well equipped - we particularly appreciated the open fire and the lovely hot shower! Jackie was very helpful and prompt in replying to emails and flexible in enabling us to check in early on our arrival day. Castleview Cottage is really well located, very near Conwy Station and a short walk from shops, cafes and restaurants. Being able to walk up Conwy Mountain straight from the cottage was a real treat. Highly recommended. — Ruth W, 26 Mar 2013
Just got back from a fantastic stay. The cottage was brilliant everything you could ask for plus more, lovely and clean well maintained.

The location was brilliant a 2 minute walk into town and to the train station and bus stop. The roof terrace was brilliant at night the view was great seeing the castle all lit up and the castle turret was realy spooky.

Would highly recommended this cottage to everyone.

Thanks for a brilliant stay
hope to stay again soon
Ruth and family.
— Ruth, 10 Nov 2012
Something special

Stylishly decorated, clean, well equipped,warm and comfortable cottage. The three outdoor areas, balcony, terrace and turret all added to the attraction of this idyllic well maintained cottage.

Jackie was very helpful and accommodating in helping us to arrange our last minute booking and we would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the cottage to anyone. Lots of nice little extras.

It was perfectly located just inside the castle walls and we were able to do walks around the town and up the mountains straight from the cottage door without using the car.

We will definately return. Two nights is not enough!
— Keith and Diane Webb and family , 30 Apr 2012
Perfect base to explore the North Wales area
A well located and stylishly decorated cottage within the walls of Conwy town. We stayed here over Easter weekend on a trip to climb Snowdon (30 minutes drive). The cottage is clean, well maintained and is a recommended stay.

Great Cottage, Great Town

Castleview is a great place to stay. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped. It has clearly been furnished by someone who really cares - the decor is tasteful and the equipment is of a really high quality. It also has very comfy beds and a great shower.

We used the roof terrace whenever the Welsh weather allowed with its views over the towns and castle beyond.

The cottage is in a quiet part of Conwy but only a few minutes walk away from the quay and castle. You can get up onto the town wall at the end of the road and if you have a fair head for heights, use the walls to get down town!

Conwy is a great place to stay with everything you are likely to need within a few minutes walk from your front door. The castle is one of the finest in Wales and our kids really enjoyed crabbing on the quayside. A local shop sells everything you need for a few pounds.

Castleview is on a road that is narrow and steep with limited parking; even if you do get a space, you'll struggle to get your car up there unscathed. However, this was not a problem as there is plenty of free, unrestricted parking nearby.

We'd all love to visit again!
— HomeAway , 23 Aug 2011
lovely cottage and great location
Just got back from a 3 night stay at castle view cottage and really didnt want to leave! the cottage is lovely and has everything that you would need, Jackie the owner also leaves lots of information about nice places to visit, walks restaurants etc which was very helpfull. Conwy was gorgeous with its cobbled streets and views of the castle and quay, we will definatly be returning, we went to the groes inn one night which is a little out of the way but well worth a visit, great food, atmosphere and service. would definatly recommend castle view cottage for a great holiday x
— Amy , 05 Feb 2011
An excellent holiday home

Everything about Castle View was excellent. It was a real home from home. The furnishings were all beautiful, the kitchen was great and the terraces and 'hidden garden' were the icing on the cake! The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. It felt comfortable as soon as we got there.
Jacki was very helpful and the booklets in the cottage provided good, up to date information. (Not always the case) We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to any-one and if we return to Conwy we would definately re-book. Castle view is so near to all amenities yet in a quiet cul de sac. The town itself is delightful with many attractions. Plas Mawr is well worth a visit and you must do the wall walk and look down on Castle View. The whole area is full of natural beauty and Castle View makes a brilliant base to which to return at the end of the day!
— Jenny A , 28 Sep 2010
Fabulous location, marvelous views and easy check in
Cottage was idyllic and very clean and comfortable. Owner very efficient with pre-stay organisation and what has to be one of the best showers in the world!!! Roof terrace views stunning and easy access to town centre and transport links. Had a great break - highly recommended!
