    • “A well equipped cosy cottage in a gorgeous location. I went with my partner and our dog. Perfectly situated for day trips around Snowdonia National Park. The cottage was clean and the owners met us on arrival, were very welcoming and there were fresh flowers in every room :) Meg the dog settled in happily.. easy walks from the cottage on to the nearby local hills and waterfalls and flower meadows. Garden was well kept, lovely flowers and mountain views! Perfect place for a romantic week - rural setting but with everything you need - local pub in the village but be sure to pick up your groceries on your way as no supermarkets nearby. Lovely wood burning stove with a fire laid ready to light on arrival. We would definitely recommend this to friends.”

    • “Well presented, comfortable cottage. The owners went out of their way to make our stay comfortable! Modern bathroom, kitchen, WIFI etc in an old miners cottage. Ideal base for touring Snowdonia and the rest of North Wales. There are several planned walking routes that pass through the village. Dog friendly! 600 yds to two pubs - a lot quicker going down thehill than back up but still easily manageable for even the two 70 year olds we had with us!”

    Mrs Bade, Romford, May 2015

    • “Beautiful location and a cottage with real character. There are great walks straight from the front door and 2 pubs within 5 minutes walking distance which both serve food. We loved sitting outside having our breakfast in front of the cottage looking at the beautiful scenery, so much so that we often lingered far longer than we intended. Owners were really helpful and friendly and made us very welcome. Free WiFi was a nice touch for the children.”

    Mr Andrew, Bristol, April 2015

    Mrs Hilton, Liverpool, March 2015

    • “The cottage was delightful, cosy and in a lovely setting. We loved the peace and quiet and the freedom from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It was a real treat to wake up each morning to a view of the Welsh hills. It was evident that the owners did everything to create a welcoming atmosphere with fresh flowers and little treats in the kitchen.”
