  • "Jane, the owner of the property was very helpful and friendly during our stay."

    She provided a lovely selection of home baked treats on our arrival and three other cake deliveries during our week there. The cottage was very well furnished and the beds very comfortable. The walk in shower was very easy to use as one of our party had mobility issues, we did not use the wood burning stove as it was too warm but there was lots of fuel provided. We visited lots of lovely and varied places within a reasonable journey time. We would definitely recommend these cottages to family and friends.

  • "This was a wonderful property and perfectly suited for our needs."

    It was an ideal location for the places we wanted to visit in North Wales. Jane, the host was wonderful and it was a warm welcome to arrive to some fresh homemade cakes. A beautiful property, well equipped with all your needs and Jane was very accommodating for all our needs and quick to deal with an issue when the toaster stopped working! Highly recommend.

  • "We enjoyed a great week staying at Hendre."

    The host, Jane, was very welcoming, providing us with a tasty home baked tea when we arrived. The cottage was warm and very well equipped with a huge kitchen and comfortable beds. The location is perfect for exploring Snowdonia and the surrounding towns - Llanberis is just minutes away by car, and Bangor, Caernarfon, Plas Newydd are also very close. Highly recommended.

  • "As we where due to arrive Jane txt asking for a 30mim pre arrival notice."

    - this was to allow her to have the scones ready When we entered the kitchen the table was full with a selection of cakes. The lounge seating was comfy and more the adequate for our party of four adults. The bed was so comfy and the shower was fantastic . Jane as a host couldn’t do enough for you would absolutely recommend this property as you won’t be disappointed !!!!

  • "Lovely spacious cottage, fab shower, fabulous hostess who provided cake and milk on arrival and more cake to go home with!"

    The cottage was lovely,clean ,tidy and great for us and 2 large dogs. My only wish was it could have done with a dog walking area (just a bit of land fenced off for dogs to be walked on lead as it’s a working farm) as the grass verge by the main road was too narrow and too busy to walk our dogs but otherwise a fab location with plenty of beaches within easy reach and Anglesey (which we loved) nearby. Would happily book again but maybe with one of the cottages with a bit of a front garden!

  • "I have stayed in many cottages over the years and Hendre is amongst the very best in a great location."

    Spacious cottage with excellent facilities. With two cars off street parking which is important to us was excellent. Jane our host was fantastic. Always available and nothing was too much trouble and to find on arrival no less than three superb home baked cakes on the kitchen table says it all.

  • "The cottage was very good comfortable and homely, Jane the owner was very helpful and there for any inquiry."

    The are was pretty and scenic. The only draw back for us was there was no where near for us to exercise our dog, but this as a small point and did not effect our very enjoyable holiday stay at Hendre.

    Pictures don’t do it justice. It’s been recently redecorated and gives you the real cottage experience. Log burner is amazing. Owner very helpful and friendly. Arrived to lovely home made cakes & tea, coffee & sugar all available. Wished we could have tried the owners cooked breakfast but it wasn’t available during our stay. Would definitely stay again

  • "We completely enjoyed our stay at Hendre cottage."

    Jane met us on arrival to give us the keys and show us around. She also had a lovely tea set out for us. The bedrooms were set up nicely and very comfortable. The bathroom had just been redone with a gorgeous new shower which was very nice though I did miss having a bath to soak in at night. The farm where the cottage is located was great and there was plenty of parking. The location was very close to everything and made it easy to explore Snowdonia.

  • "Amazing cottage so peaceful and exactly what we thought it would be."

    It was made better by the lovely hostess Jane especially the cakes made on our arrival and our departure. Lovely touch! So good to have little things for us like washing up liquid, toiletries etc. Cottage really good. Only criticism is think it would benefit from having a proper shower over the bath with shower curtain put up. It’s hard to not have a shower for a week.

  • "Really nice holiday cottage."

    Great location, very close to Llanberis (for Snowdon), Caernarfon and Bangor. Awesome view from the courtyard every morning! Very helpful landlady. Well equipped kitchen, and cosy living room. Comfortable beds, and provided a baby cot and stair gate for our little one. (There was a review we read before about lack of shower curtain, this is very much still an issue! The shower head has a leak on one side as well, so water gets ALL over the floor! Don't put your clothes or towel anywhere near the bath if you have a shower! But this is a pretty minor issue) Had a lovely time! Thank you!

  • "The wording in the cottage description led you to believe there was a garden with the cottage and that the local pub and shop 2 miles away was walkable."

    Wording needs changing to state communal shared garden and no footpaths led off from the Farm and local pub and shop was by car only. Two kep points when taking dogs with you.

  • "We were very happy with our choice of accommodation - the owner was lovely and very friendly."

    As this is on her land specifically we got to chat when we arrived. The accommodation is not the "Cleanest" with some things being a bit dusty and cobwebbed - but at the end of the day its a farm cottage and was roughly in line with my expectation. Once we got settled we found most of the things that mattered in cleanliness were taken care of - the couch and carpets were all clean and so were the beds. The arrival was lovely with Jane (Owner) having made food for our arrival including baked items on the kitchen table that went above and beyond what she needed to do. As a penny pinching Scotsman i must say i felt we got our money's worth :). The parking outside could get complicated if the housing was all in use and they all had cars / multiples there were three cars at our time of staying and we all managed perfectly fine and could possibly squeeze 1 or 2 (maybe) more without having a tight parking situation! The fire was a delight i had not 100% expected as it was as Jane allowed us access to the firewood stores to collect our own fuel as and when we wished and we made good use of this on chillier nights though often these were far and few between with the cottage being quite warm (probably with the weather). One thing to bear in mind, the ceilings are very high but those doorways ain't ;) and its easy to forget that on the way to the loo at 2am. The only thing i would point out as needs improving would be the show in this cottage, i would add an anti slip mat to the bath for one, as this was noted when all 6ft 6 of me went a bit slidy, and the second thing would be a curtain, i felt terrible with the fantastic water pressure in this shower that the water just sprayed everywhere in the bathroom. That would be the only thing i think. For people looking at booking i recommend you do so its a great place lovely and out of the way, it took 10 minutes to get to walks around the cottage for hills, or to visit the towns (10 min drive to Bangor and supermarkets) and a 20-30 minute outing to Holy Island for a day. This is a perfectly placed cottage that is comfortable and friendly with excellent facilities and a fantastic link to nearby areas - it has to be the best place i have stayed in the last 10 years. Many thanks to the owners for a great stay I hope to be back :) Nik
