  • "Beautiful cottage and location."

    Absolutely stunning, exceeded our expectations. The cottage is beautiful and isolated but in an amazing location for exploring.

  • "Our family of four (2 adults, 2 teens) loved this cosy cottage in the quiet and beautiful North Wales countryside."

    The beds were very comfortable, the house and garden nicely decorated and well kept and the property had everything we needed for our stay. The welcome tray was a very kind touch and the swing in the garden was fun. The info pack was well laid out and we made use of the tourist leaflets, books and games provided. The cottage was in a great location for our days out in Snowdonia to the south and Anglesey and Colwyn Bay to the north and we also enjoyed the local walks from the doorstep with our dog plus Zip World nearby. A few small pointers for improvement: - Only 2 sets of towels rather than 4 were provided. - Someone's clothes from a previous visit were left in a chest of drawers. - The laundry bag in the under-stairs cupboard was full. - There was no hot water in the taps until we found the immersion heater button in the hall way and turned it on...perhaps this could be mentioned in the visitor info pack. - There were no instructions for the Nespresso machine and we couldn't get it to make coffee properly despite finding instructions online...perhaps the machine needs checking and/or provide instructions. - There were three plugin air fresheners at the property and the smell was very over-powering when we arrived - we are sensitive/affected by that sort of thing. We felt much more comfortable once we had turned them off and opened all the windows and doors. Perhaps these are unnecessary. Thank you again - we had a super stay at your lovely cottage and will recommend it to our friends and family.

  • "Bodfeurig Farm Cottage was an absolutely perfect base for a week in North Wales."

    The cottage was immaculately clean and had everything we needed for a very comfortable week. Decorated beautifully and with thoughtful and tasteful touches the cottage is clearly far more to the owners than simply a holiday let. The beds were comfortable, lovely linens and towels, all of the kitchen equipment is high quality and there is everything you could need. We were fortunate to be able to enjoy the stunning garden as the weather was warm and sunny but the cottage offers a comfortable and cozy sitting room with wood burner for chillier nights. Perfectly located for trips to Anglesey, Bounce Below, Snowdon, Conwy and Portmeirion we had a superb week in this gorgeous cottage - a perfect oasis of luxury for a week in Wales for a family of 5. Thank you and we hope to return!

  • "The electricity kept tripping and this disabled the fridge and all electric appliances in the kitchen."

    One of our guests is a type one diabetic and his insulin became warm whilst we were out for the day which is not ideal so I would recommend this be looked at. The outdoor lights over the table in the garden didn't work either. We suspected the outdoor back light over the door was responsible for tripping the electricity. However an electrician would figure that out for sure. Notwithstanding the above, the cottage is beautiful, with really pleasant views of the countryside and coast. it is also perfectly located so I would definitely go back and recommend the place to others.

    Thank you very much for sending feedback, it is always valued. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and would be very happy to welcome you back again in the future. Thank you for your note regarding the hot water. The immersion can get hot when left on continually, and we have enhanced the instructions left for guests in the welcome book to assist with this. We are sorry you experienced an electrical fault during your stay, please be assured an engineer was called out as soon as we were aware there was on ongoing issue and this has now been rectified.

  • "Beautifully restored cottage, spotlessly clean."

    We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The double room was a little small, but that was described in the listing. I feel that the owners should be aware that the hot water came out at a scalding temperature. This could be cooled by adults, but should a small child wash their hands unaccompanied, a nasty scald could easily be acquired. It was a bit mean to leave 3 dishwasher tablets for a 7 day stay. It may be an idea to list that the bumpy lane to the cottage has protruding rocks that hit the bottom of standard cars. We overcame this by having one person in the car for the drive up and down the lane.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback for Bodfeurig Cottage, your comments have been taken on board. It does state in the property description that the track is rough and should be taken slowly, but it does not usually present a problem for the average car. We hope to be able to welcome you back soon! Property Owner

  • "Really lovey cosy cottage."

    Spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. This was the perfect place for an autumnal getaway. Only downside I would point out is that the bedrooms, in particular the double are very small. It was fine and as expected but meant it was a bit of a squeeze. Lots to see and do in this really beautiful part of Wales.

  • "Absolutely excellent accommodation, might be worth putting a sign up on the other side of the drive as well as the one currently is hidden by the white van parked in front of it, we had to ask the friendly postman."

    .. Everything you would need was available for a comfortable stay, all mod cons in the kitchen, bluetooth speaker in the lounge, excellent heating throughout. Would absolutely recommend.

  • "We absolutely loved the cottage."

    Really high standard of comfort and cleanliness, with CV19 presenting no problems at all. Beautiful location and a great place to relax as a family - loved the open fire and the children adored the swing in the garden. We hope to come back for a week to both explore Snowdonia and enjoy the cottage even more! Thanks

  • "We just returned from a weeks stay at Bodfeurig."

    Had a really lovely stay. We had 5 adults and 2 small dogs. Spotlessly clean, a really cosy little cottage (even more so with the fire on). The garden is much bigger than we were expecting and we were lucky enough to have good weather for most of our stay so enjoyed the tree swing and seating area outside. In a perfect spot, we had a day booked at Zip World which is under 10 minutes away. Useful information for when guests arrive and clear instructions on how to leave the cottage with the new COVID regulations. Would absolutely recommend.

  • "We had such a fantastic holiday at Bodfeurig Farm Cottage."

    So much love and thought has gone into making the cottage a perfect, comfortable and cosy little base for exploring wonderful North Wales. The garden had sun all day, the cottage had everything you would need to be able to relax and the kitchen was small but perfectly formed and equipped. The kids loved saying good morning to the well-behaved cows and sheep in the neighbouring field(!) and views of the surrounding countryside could not be faltered . We’ll be back for sure. It was our first visit to North Wales and Menai Cottages, the host and the housekeepers made it a wonderfully easy process (given the complications of COVID) and I would highly recommend the agent and property. Get booking!

About the location

BETHESDA

Bangor 6 miles; Caernarfon 10 miles.

Bethesda is a small town settled beside the River Ogwen in North Wales. Situated on the A5 between Bangor and the Snowdonia National Park, Bethesda was once a busy slate quarrying town and nowadays offers a good selection of shops and other amenities, in particular a number of chapels and pubs. The beautiful mountainous scenery of Snowdonia borders Bethesda, with the Lôn Las Ogwen cycling and walking paths skirting past. For the more adventurous, why not visit Zip World in Bethesda which is known for having Europe’s fastest and longest zip line. Capel Curig, just ten miles away, is a popular centre for walking, climbing and mountain biking, whilst Llanberis is situated at the foot of Mount Snowdon and is home to the Snowdon Mountain Railway and the National Slate Museum. Cwm Idwal is also a wonderful spot to visit, situated in northern Snowdonia – Darwin came to study the area and found tiny fossils of oceanic plant life and sea creatures in the boulders and rocks. The coastal town of Caernarfon is just a short drive away as is the beautiful Isle of Anglesey and the Anglesey Coastal Path. Visitors to the area can also explore the castles of Caernarfon and Beaumaris and the NT stately homes of Penrhyn Castle and Plas Newydd Country House and Gardens. Spend the day at one of the many traditional seaside resorts, or discover the isolated, hidden beaches on Anglesey, much of which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With spectacular scenery on the doorstep, wonderful wildlife with buzzards soaring overhead and the occasional Peregrine Falcon to be seen, and many exciting outdoor adventures to discover nearby, Bethesda is superbly located for enjoying both the coast and the countryside of stunning North Wales.
