Guest Reviews


    • “The cottage was everything and more than we expected, everything that we needed was available and that includes for our 3 teenage kids so well done. The views from the back garden are jaw dropping, the trains being so close was a positive advantage and not at all obtrusive as they pass very slowly.”

    Mr Perrins, Boston, July 2014

    • “The property was spacious,the location and views were fantastic and stopping the train right outside the property was a bonus.”

    Mrs Gibson, Swindon, June 2014

    • “The cottage was big enough for 3 generations without being on top of each other all the time. Safe for little ones with plenty to explore close to hand. Perfect area for visitor attractions and things were not too expensive. Train drivers were very friendly and tooted when they saw the children in the garden.”

    Mrs Rayment, Hartlepool, May 2014

    • “The cottages was lovely and comfy. It was extremely spacious and well equipped. The views were fantastic and it was a short drive to Snowdon and Betws Y Coed.”

    Mr Khan, London, March 2014

    • “We loved the location, we could walk up to the valley straight from the house and we loved that it was an old station house on the platform of a working railway. This particularly appealed to the boys - and my dad could get the train from Llandudno and literally step out on our doorstep. The house was very well laid out, comfortable, and well equipped; the fully enclosed garden was brilliant for the dog.”

    Miss Turner, Hook, March 2014

    • “Stunning views from garden room, loved 'quirkiness' of trains passing so close to cottage! Clean, spacious and warm. Excellent enclosed garden. Super location for exploring Snowdonia national park.”

    Mrs Burton, Norwich, December 2013
