  • "Excellent property."

    The owner was great, very welcoming, provided a feast of baked goods, and was there to answer my questions. The cottage is lovely, very comfortable and had everything we could need. The location is fantastic, easy access to all of Snowdonia. It was very nice going to sleep to the sound of sheep and cows in the surrounding fields.

  • "The cottage was absolutely beautiful."

    It was clean and tidy throughout. The decor was amazing and the attention to detail was second to none. Everything was thought of. Jane even made us a huge selection of cakes for our arrival which were absolutely delicious and she greeted us which was a lovely gesture. 10/10. Couldn’t have asked for better. We will be back next year.

  • "We would stay at Hendre again in a heartbeat."

    Jane left out various pastries on our arrival which was lovely. The place was spotless and incredibly homely. I could have stayed forever. The working farm it’s on was a joy. The country smells and the glimpses into the farms life, cows being moved around sheep and lambs in the fields was just a delight. It was very well placed for everything. Llanberis just around the corner. Plenty of shops in the vicinity. The surrounds and the views in the area were simply stunning. We will hopefully be back and staying at TY MAWR farm in the future. Thanks Jane and family for giving us a great week on your farm.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Hendre."

    The tea and baking upon arrival was lovely and very welcome after a long journey! The cottage is spacious, comfortable, well appointed with everything you need and in the perfect location for exploring both Snowdonia and the coast. We've stayed in many places over the years and this is one of the best. Thank you Jane for a lovely holiday.

    The lovely Jane upgraded us FOC to Beudy Bach which was totally faultless. Best property we've ever stayed in for welcome.comfort, amenities and location. Will definitely stay again.

  • "What a beautiful gem of a cottage."

    I really couldn't find fault in any area. Warm , peaceful, well stocked, well maintained. Set in a peaceful farm , just a 5 min drive to all major routes. Jane was very welcoming and supplied us with some scrumptious home made baking on our arrival and for our journey home. The property is set in a small area on the farm with 3 other holiday accomodations and would be absolutely perfect for a group of friends wishing to holiday together. I look forward to returning and to say the beds were luxurious would be a understatement, and the shower, how I missed that shower last night. Thankyou Jane.

    Only problem was height of doorways but that is my husband’s fault for being 6ft 4ins tall.

  • "The cottage was really lovely - full of mod cons such as dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, etc."

    The beds were extremely comfortable, so much so, that my friend has now gone home to buy herself a new mattress! The shower was fab - hot power shower. Apart from an issue on the very first night with WiFi, which the owner quickly rectified, we had no concerns at all. My only one small issue was that I thought the garden with this cottage was enclosed, as I have 2x Spaniels, but it was just an open patch of grass for generic use for all 4x cottages. I just ensured they were always on their leads when we used it. The owner was so welcoming, banana loaf, Welsh cakes all left freshly baked for us on arrival, which bearing in mind we'd driven all the way up from Cornwall, was a very welcome sight! Would 100% recommend this cottage, and would happily stay again. Really good location for travelling around North Wales.

    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.

  • "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!

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.

    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!

    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
