    • “A place with really high standards the furniture and furnishings were superb. The owners could not have been more welcoming and the welcome goodies were a bonus. Ideal for a romantic break or just a few days to re-charge yourself from the outside hustle and bustle of everyday life. A good central location for many of the nearby amenities, good local shops and eating places.Having been in National Trust properties this was as good if not better.”

    • “One of the very nicest dog friendly cottages we've ever stayed in. It has fabulous views and is very well-appointed. It is small but perfect for two people plus a dog. The owner is very friendly and welcoming on arrival and subsequently. It is very conveniently situated for many parts of North Wales and also Chester, Liverpool etc. We enjoyed it immensely and would highly recommend it.”
