  • "A beautiful cottage situated in an ideal spot for peace quiet and privacy but not far from lovely walks."

    Beach and shops near by, the signal is not very good for the t.v. it was a bit of a hit and miss as to whether you could get it on , the only other thing lacking was information booklets on appliances i.e cooker t.v, heating (if needed) as there was a log burner, on our stay the upstairs bathroom/toilet were closed off which was an inconvenience but understandably things happen and there was one on ground floor so not a major problem we had a great few days and would definatley book again.

  • "Tolles Haus, hochwertige vollständige Ausstattung, schöner Mix zwischen alt und neu."

    Nur die richtige Einfahrt zu finden, hat uns im Dunkeln etwas Mühe gemacht. Der Host war per Telefon aber auch noch Abends erreichbar. Klare Empfehlung!

  • "The cottage is finished off to the highest standard, the owners have not scrimped on anything, the towels and bedding are lovely, beds very comfortable."

    We had such a nice week, the dog has enjoyed it, and didn't want to leave.. there are a lot of little touches, down to dog toys, bowls ect. Great base for kayaking. We love Wales and will be returning soon. The only down side was the Internet was poor, more so for the kids, didn't really bother me too much. Also couldn't find the microwave, which would have been handy for a quick meal upon returning, however I don't mind cooking fresh. 100% recommend this cottage.

  • "We’ve just arrived home from a week in Tyddyn Bach and loved the cottage!"

    It was perfectly equipped with everything we needed, lots of little touches that made it feel very welcoming. Very conveniently located for both the beach and walks in the mountains. The photos can’t do justice to how private the cottage is, it’s situated down a long driveway with no neighbours in sight. The only sounds were distant sheep and the birds overhead. The grounds are lovely, lots of mature trees and all well maintained. The inside of the cottage is very spacious with beautiful original features. We would definitely stay again in future. Thank you for a wonderful week!

    Thank you Carl for coming to stay. I’m so happy you enjoyed it and had a great time. We hope to welcome you back again soon Property Owner

  • "Lovely secluded property in great area of Wales with all necessary equipment."

    Large kitchen table provides lovely focus for the property. Lots of lovely touches by owner by providing things you may forget to bring such as dog bowls, lead and guide books. The cottage has been renovated to high standard. The stone work on the extension and the walls have been done with expertise and perfection. Overall a lovel cottage.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage, which was in an amazing setting, easy to find and with easily enough space for 6 people and 3 cars if needed."

    The pictures provided on the website were very accurate and we found the place was in excellent condition. Thank you to the owner who was also very nice and on hand when we needed them, despite the fact they were abroad at the time of our stay, which was really appreciated. If we are ever over in the Snowdonia area, we will definitely be booking to stay again!

  • "Could not have had a better experience!"

    Super helpful landlord, everything was clean, and the cabin was even prettier and nicer in real life than pictures. Already planning to come back for another trip! 100% recommend :)

    Thank you so much for your feedback. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay and I look forward to welcoming you back soon! Property Owner
