This delightful detached holiday property was once the station master’s house at Tal-y-Cafn station, which is still open as a request stop on the branch line to Blaenau Ffestiniog. There are 6 trains each way per day on this line and trains call at the station between 5.30am and 9.15pm. Sleeping four people it makes a great base for exploring the area where you can catch the train to Llandudno, Betws-y-Coed or Blaenau Ffestiniog. There’s a gastro pub just 50 yards away serving delicious Welsh produce, and the Bodnant Welsh Food Centre is within walking distance with a café, restaurant and farm shop which is well worth a visit. The famous Bodnant Garden (National Trust) is just a little further away and has 80 acres of stunning gardens to explore, together with the plant centre and craft units. Guests can watch surfers whilst enjoying a coffee nearby at the incredible Surf Snowdonia at Dolgarrog. The Victorian resort of Llandudno offers a great selection of shops, the Venue Cymru theatre, fantastic beaches, the Great Orme headland with Bronze Age copper mines, the UK’s only cable operated tramway and the UK’s longest cable car ride, together with fantastic views. You can walk the town walls at historic Conwy, imagine yourself capturing Conwy Castle (a World Heritage Site), or stroll along the quay. At Betws-y-Coed adrenaline junkies can try Zip World Fforest with the amazing Fforest Coaster, or you can take a walk in the leafy Gwydir Forest Park. At the end of the line at Blaenau Ffestiniog you can either catch a Ffestiniog Railway steam train on the spectacular journey to the coast at Porthmadog, or visit Bounce Below, where you can bounce away come rain or shine on trampoline nets deep inside an old slate mine. Beach 8 miles. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 40 yards.

    Excellent base for an holiday and connections to North Wales railways and Bodnant Gardens. Everyone we met were helpful and friendly. Ideal restaurant and bar next door. Station House surpassed all our expectations.

    Response on behalf of the owner; I'm delighted to learn that you enjoyed your time at Station House along with the local amenities at Tal-y-Cafn pub/restaurant, the trains running and the beauty of Bodnant in the Autumn. Come back in a different season maybe for a bit of zip line and Surf Snowdonia in the summer.

    A lovely place, we enjoyed its quaintness and the fact it was well located to visit North Wales's many wonderful sights. We were greeted by very helpful people around the house, only good memories for the whole family.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Hello Emma. I'm so happy that you all had such a great holiday @ Station House and that you have lots of wonderful memories. Thanks for taking time to put a positive review on the website now that the railway line is running and Tal-y-Cafn pub has a new tenant who seems to have made a lot of difference in a small time. Hope you'll recommend us to your friends and come again soon. Dee

    We had a great holiday at the Station House it had all that was required a good base to visit the castles, towns and many other interests like railway trips and shopping in quaint villages. Having a diner/pub next door was great to come back to no driving required able to taste a few beers. Never had the TV on just read and enjoyed the quiet. Shall certainly tell our friends about this gem.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Dear Norman - Thanks for a great review and your positivity, which I believe Station House truly deserves. We’ve had several low ratings basing the experience on outside forces which I can’t control, but now that railway running and pub open, I’m hoping that we’ll see fairer reviews. Hope you and your friends will come again. Best wishes, Dee.

    when we booked it the trains were running a service, and it said a pub close by.we found about the trains not running after the last details came to us. then the pub we found was shut a few weeks ago. This was not the rental companys fault. the cottage its self was ok , we may book again one day.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Dear Raymond - I can understand your disappointment that not only was the railway not running, but the pub was still closed when you came to stay - two of the main reasons we bought Station House and why our visitors choose to visit - I really am so sorry. I do hope that you will come back to enjoy the pub which is due to open in the next week or so and the convenience of taking the Conwy Valley Line to enjoy the superb local amenities. With best wishes, Dee.
