    • “Fantastic”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This is our second visit and this place is amazing. It is spotlessly clean and has everything to make your stay a fantastic one. The scenery is exactly like the pictures and this cottage is just so well equipped with everything that you would need. If you want to just chill out and relax then this is the place, however there are some beautiful walks and activities nearby. I would highly recommend a stay here and the owners are a delight. This is great for groups and there are 2 lounges, with one at either end so the kids can be in one and the adults in the other !! Will be visiting again.”

    • “We booked Y Sgubor as part of my wifes 40th Birthday celebrations. We were a party of 10 including 4 under 8 children. The location was excellent for a getaway from the hustle of life. What made it especially good was the interaction with the farmer who let the kids feed the sheep. We actually felt like part of the furniture when we left. Already booked for next year.”

    • “We booked this as a base for a 40th birthday celebration, the photo's didn't do it justice. Spotlessly clean, absolutely everything in the kitchen available, very spacious. The hot tub is a major bonus. Although right next door to the owners and very accessible when required they just carried on their working life. Recommend activities white water rafting in Bala and cycling round Lake Vyrnwy. Already planning a return trip, highly recommend .”

    • “This property was just perfect for us and our family. It is fitted out to a very high standard,spotlessly clean and well equipped. The location was beautiful, very remote and there are some lovely walks from the property. My son was able to go mountain biking nearby. It was also not too far from other places of interest. The owners are next door and very helpful and friendly.”

    • “Amazing!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed here last week, nine of us and a dog. It's well off the beaten track and the snowy hills were absolutely beautiful. We were all enthralled by the new born lambs in the fields and the adjacent barn. Mr Jones and his team were generous to a fault in allowing the younger members of the party to hold them. The house is very well furnished and equipped. Minor issues were quickly and effectively dealt with by Mrs Jones. We loved the space available and made full use of it, including the hot tub. The walk up into the hills from the farm is phenomenal and our spaniel was happy to be off his lead on such different territory. It wouldn't though suit a dog who might chase sheep. I'd go back there in a heartbeat.”

    • “We all had such a fantastic time staying with Mr and Mrs Jones in their beautiful house. The extreme snow meant that we had to rely on them to help us get to and from the house and they were so willing to help at every turn, we couldn't have asked for better service! The house and hot tub were superb and we can't wait to come again in better conditions to see more of the beautiful countryside.”
