About Driftwood Holiday Cottage

Driftwood Cottage could not be any more "seafront" without actually being on the beach. The charming stone cottage started life a century ago as a simple home for a quarry worker and his family. Today, 100 years after it was built, it is a family-friendly self-catering holiday property in Penmaenmawr, captivating couples with its uninterrupted sea views. The beach, promenade, cafes, shops and the Bron Eryri pub are all conveniently within walking distance.

Penmaenmawr is on the North Wales coast, close to Conwy with fantastic views over Conwy Bay to Puffin Island and Anglesey. Its vast sandy beach makes it a popular summer holiday destination as it has a diverse array of attractions and beauty spots. An excellent way to orientate yourself is with a stroll along the promenade, stopping for a photo by the traditional beach huts before treating yourself to a restorative slice of cake at the Beach Cafe. Visit the Penmaenmawr Museum to find out more about the town's past, stroll through the gardens of the Parc Plas Mawr, and try not to let yourself be too distracted by the sensational views as you play a round of golf.

Conwy is only a 10-minute drive from the cottage. The town is home to a magnificent castle - one of the Iron Ring of castles constructed on the orders of Edward I which is now part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Situated in the shadow of the battlements is the smallest house in Britain, measuring a mere 180 centimetres wide. Conwy also has an impressive suspension bridge, National Trust properties, and a great choice of places to eat, drink and shop. Other local attractions include the Welsh Mountain Zoo, Dolwyddelan Castle, and the Great Orme Tramway.

North Wales is an adventurer's playground with loads of opportunities to walk, mountain bike, sail and windsurf, fish, and go coasteering. The Snowdon Mountain Railway in Llanberris is about half an hour's drive, or you could walk to Wales' highest peak up one of six routes of varying difficulty. Alternatively, take the way-marked Upland Walk above Penmaenmawr where the steep climb is rewarded with unforgettable panoramic views.

Driftwood Cottage is available for short breaks or longer stays all year round. Its seafront location and period charm make it the perfect escape for a romantic holiday.

Accommodation Comprises:

Driftwood Cottage is an end-terrace property with accommodation over two levels.


  • Enter into a light-filled open-plan space which has been opened up to suit modern living and to make the most of the views. The thick stone walls and exposed beams show the age of the cottage, while stylish Jasper Conran furnishings and an electric fire in the fireplace ensure it meets today's standards of comfort.
  • Meals may be later than normal, as you'll struggle to drag your eyes away from the incredible sea views framed by the kitchen window. A compact dining table seating two is tucked to the side of the room but can be moved for mealtime. Clever planning makes the most of the space so that guests can enjoy high-quality appliances and extras like a wine fridge.


  • Double bedroom with a kingsize bed, bedside tables with reading lights, a wardrobe and a dressing table.
  • Contemporary bathroom with a shower over the bath, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: The landscaped garden enjoys the same incredible views as the kitchen. There is a deck area with sun loungers, and a table and chairs with a parasol so you can eat outdoors in sunny weather. The classic nautical theme from the interior decor is reflected in the garden. There is parking on the street outside the cottage.

Additional Information: All utilities, WiFi, sheets and bath towels are included, with guests to bring beach towels if they are required. Short breaks (minimum of two nights from October to March, or three nights from April to September) are possible depending on availability. Smoking and pets are not permitted.
