  • "Lovely cottage."

    Perfect location. Had the warmest of welcomes, even got some fresh eggs for the next morning! Delyth was on hand if we needed anything and was just a text away. If we visit Wales again, we will definitely be returning to Hendre Cottage.

    Hi Sarah Thank you for your kind words and excellent feedback much appreciated. It was a pleasure to meet you all and would love to welcome you back in the future. Thank you/Diolch Property Owner

  • "Absolutely wonderful stay."

    Delightful hosts, the cottage is immaculate, and there are three very friendly cats on the farm! The surrounding scenery is stunning, and the cottage is perfectly situated for a walking holiday. We will definitely be staying again.

  • "A lovely cottage in a perfect location for cycling and walking, and also for being able to reach either the coast or the beautiful Snowdonian mountains within a 30 minute drive; there are some challenging mountain passes to drive or bike along, rewarding those brave enough to take on the challenge with breathtaking scenery!"

    The great location even allowed us to spend a day in Anglesey after having visited Caernarfon, and the dark sky around the cottage was great for stargazing through the velux windows, in the comfort of being indoors with wine in hand! The owner was warm and welcoming without being intrusive and was very quick to respond to questions prior to and during our visit. We found everything we needed in the cottage and the welcome hamper of eggs, milk, tea and treats was a lovely touch. We will definitely be returning to Hendre Cottage again soon!

  • "Good comfortable cottage."

    Right next to a A Road but hardly heard any noice, can get used to it. Owners live right next door, very helpful. Not much to do around the area, there's the Forest park about 5 minutes away but everything else is around 50 minutes drive. Around 35 miles like the main areas, Bala, Betsy Cwoyd, Cricceth, etc.

  • "It was a beautiful property with lovely views of the mountains."

    The house was so clean and we had everything we needed. The showers were excellent and beds very comfortable with cosy duvets. The lady who owned the property was so welcoming and helpful and my children loved the farm cat who would rush to come and get some fuss from us all. We got to see a little bit of farm life with the sheepdog rounding up the sheep and the calves coming to be fed their grain in the field. All in all it was a wonderful stay at Hendre Fawr.

    The cottage was clean and beautifully presented with everything needed to make your home away from home. The position of the cottage in relation to the A470 meant that the whole of Wales was easily accessible, it's a great base surrounded by breath taking scenery. If you want to be able to see and visit forests, mountains and the beach it's the perfect place to stay.

  • "Hendre Cottage is a lovely small barn conversion with great facilities, extremely well presented and is perfect for a family of four, two couples, or three people if two are willing to share a room."

    The cottage is situated next to the owners house on her delightful smallholding. My friend and I found the location, which is literally 4 minutes from Coed Y Brenin Trail Centre, to be ideal as we were riding bikes the entire weekend. It would be ideal for anyone wanting to enjoy the spectacular scenery of North Wales. The owner is a charming and helpful woman that went so far as to loan us her slow cooker so that we could leave a meal cooking whilst we went riding. There are a couple of points to make that I feel people should be aware of. Firstly the cottage is next to the A470 which is in regular use, even during the night. I am a light sleeper and wish I had bought my ear plugs, if you are a light sleeper I suggest you do the same. Secondly, there are a few very curious cats in the area, if you have any allergies to cats then I suggest having a discussion before booking.

  • "Our stay was excellent!"

    The cottage is so easy to find due to a great location, easily accessible and about 30min away from bigger towns/shops/some places to visit. Our cottage was modern, very tidy, cosy and warm. We felt welcome from the very first minute as the owner met us on our arrival. The owner is extremely polite, friendly and will take care of you well. She checked out if we had everything we needed, but was not interfering with the rest of the stay, which I think was great as we could relax and enjoy our holidays! The view through the window was breathtaking: we had a barbecue outside while enjoying the view of the mountains! I would highly recommend this holiday place.
