..has everything we needed for our short stay. Good communication with owner, letting us know that we could arrive earlier in the day than planned, and also received a nice text during our stay to ask if everything was going well. Excellent for exploring South Snowdonia. Nice meal in the pub opposite.
"The cottage was absolutely lovely, it was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed."
Although the listing stated that it backed on to the river, which it did, it read as if this was literally at the back of the property, while it was actually along the road and down steps onto a public footpath which was very narrow and rocky in places. The path also only went a very short way along the bank before you were stopped by a fence with no way through, so had to turn back. This is only a very small criticism though as the cottage is in a lovely area and is a great base to explore further afield. I think it is also worth mentioning that the pub opposite is closed Monday and Tuesday, which again is only a small issue, but might be relevant to some. All in all we had a fabulous time.
Thank you for your feedback Diane. Glad you enjoyed your stay in Cemaes it is indeed a lovely area. We will check out the dog walk along the river with our Spaniel, Connie. Last time we did this we could get right along. There's a possibility you went the long way round to get to the Dyfi. The footpath is 20 yards from Tan Y Gerddi. Thanks for the info about the Penrhos Arms and thanks again for booking. Property Owner
"We always enjoy our stays here."
We hope to come back again soon.
Thanks Sarah, always lovely to have your family to stay. Property Owner
"A very clean, comfortable and cosy cottage."
A good base for exploring. The neighbours and village were welcoming and friendly. We'd definitely book again when in the area.
Thank you very much for your feedback. We agree that the people in Cemaes are great. Perhaps it's because they live in such a beautiful part of the world. We would love you to come and stay again. Property Owner
"Cottage first class facilities, clean, well presented and had everything you needed for an enjoyable stay including a comfy bed."
Complimentary Prosecco chocolates milk and biscuits much appreciated. Local shop had everything you needed especially the lovely coffees every morning. Owners kept in contact by text and areas to walk dogs locally easily found. Very quiet at night, pub locally but not open all the time due to time of year. I would not hesitate to stay at this cottage again.
Thank you so much. Glad you enjoyed your break in Cemaes. The complimentary Prosecco was especially for Valentine's week but we aim to give all guests something as a welcome to Tan Y Gerddi. We would love to welcome you back. Kind regards, Kathleen . Property Owner
"This is perfect place for people who would like to get away for a while from the city rush."
Landlord is very thoughtful and was taking good care of us, he is also a pet lover which was a plus. There was no problem with communication. Place is charming and cozy. Almost felt like at home.
"Lovely cottage with lots of little touches that made it feel like a home from home."
Excellent communication from the very friendly owners and very responsive to questions throughout the stay. Very beautiful countryside all around, beach 30 mins away and lovely local grocery shop on the corner that also does coffee and cake. I’d very much recommend a stay here
"A wonderful little cottage in a great location."
Felt at home from the start and plenty of beautiful places to visit in all directions. Thank you.
Thank you. So pleased that you felt at home. That's really important to us. Property Owner
"A really lovely spot, perfect size for me and my partner and a great location to get to the local biking trails from."
Shop at the top of the lane was great too- fantastic coffee!
"A lovely, compact cottage with beautiful access to the river and the surrounding Welsh countryside."
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and appreciated the cleanliness of the cottage, the welcome Welsh cakes and milk, and the communication from the owner who checked in via text during our stay to ensure everything was ok. Would definitely stay again. Parking was absolutely fine, lots of on road parking really close to the cottage.
"Very pleased with this lovely cottage it has been well looked after and had everything we needed."
Village shop just a few yards up the lane and very nice pub across the road what more could you ask for every one in the village very friendly, had a great time big thanks to Kath & Mike the owners of the cottage.
"I loved the little welcome pack for the dog!"
So nice to have a welcoming stay especially that allows the dog. Thank you.
"I would highly recommend booking here, and I have been doing to my friends and family."
Its in a lovely location, with a beautiful river behind for a little dog walk or to sit and relax, I swam in it each morning. It's in the middle of everything, just outside Machynlleth, not too far from Dolgellau, beaches are fairly close and completely surrounded by beautiful walks and mountains. Cadair Idris and the best spot to view the Mach Loop is short drive away. It was spotlessly clean and very cosy. We absolutely loved the layout and design of the place, certainly big enough the 2 and a dog. The place had that homey feel, with lots of nice little touches. The bed was very comfy, we had a great night's sleep, the sofas very comfy too. Though the fire isn't real we still enjoyed putting it on when we came in on the wet days, instantly made us feel warmer. The kitchen seemed well equipped but we didn't use it. Instead we went to a fantastic restaurant up up road, The Brigands. We recommend eating here, delicious food and the best lamb. The pub across the road does standard cheap pub grub, their pub garden is the perfect spot of a pint in the sun. The little shop at the end of the road was great for our morning coffees and we stocked up on some lovely local food stuffs to take home. All in all a great holiday at 1 Tan Y Gerddie, I'm hoping to book again!
"Excellent in every way."
There is no garden but we were aware of that when booking. Very helpful owners who responded immediately to one text query.
"Ideal spot to explore the area."
The river behind the property is glorious, particularly when the sun rises. Don't walk along the bank to the right as its a dead end. The cottage is very clean and well set out. The fire is warm and the sofa very comfortable, though the bed was a bit hard for me. The cottage has everything you need for your stay. The pub is about 80 yards away. Food is good and there's a warm welcome from Shirley and Rhys, and dogs are welcome. Don't park in front of the shop, or you'll get a sharp note from the owner asking you to move. We didn't use the shop, but it looks well stocked. Its about 6 miles to Machynlleth. Market day there is Wednesday. Avoid the Chinese takeaway, truly awful food! The beach at nearby Aberdovey is huge, plenty of parking and a good choice of food there. Would come back.
"Thanks so much for the stay, we had everything more and enjoyed the little touches of bottled milk and toffee waffles when we arrived, they gave us the boost we needed for the final stint up snowdon!"
We will be back! Xx
"Great location, beautiful inside, lovely river at the back of the house with a fantastic walk alongside it."
Excellent communication from the owners which made us feel at ease especially during this time, definitely return and highly recommended.
"Wonderful little ‘Home from Home’, clean and comfortable, shop and pub a short walk away, cottage conveniently situated for visiting the area."
A repeat visit for us and such a lovely break during these strange times. Friendly and helpful owners.
"The cottage is very cute and comfortable not far from a shop and pub."
We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it. The owner's were very helpful.
"This is a beautifully created bolt hole for two in a lovely part of Wales."
The property is extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. Communication with the owners was quick and helpful.
"Very impressed with the quality of fittings and furnishings well above the norm ."
Very clean in fact spotless ,and nice to see cleaning products available for our use in the cupboards . A very good selection of pots ,pans ,utensils ect. There was some tea ,coffee, and biscuit's left in containers , soaps and other bathroom products , the towels were top quality , and plenty of bedding . The setting of the house is in a quiet spot ,no night noises from traffic or people . There was even a dogs lead and collar in case you forget to take yours for your pet. I give this place 5* and the area 5* couldn't fault anything.
"Absolutely loved this cottage, beautiful area."
. Peaceful and quiet. Very cute and comfortable cottage. Lovely comfy big bed, nice bathroom, very clean and well equipped. We couldn't park outside so we just parked out on the main road which was a 30 second walk. We received information prior to arrival about parking which was very helpful. Only thing I would say is make sure you take spare toilet roll with you as when we arrived there was only a little bit on a roll left and the nearest shop is 5 miles away. Otherwise faultless cottage :)
Thank you for your lovely comments. We are so glad that you had a good break. It is important to us that our guests enjoy their stay. Thank you also for letting us know about the lack of toilet roll and now we can make sure that this will NOT happen again. Property Owner
A wood burner would top it off nicely as the electric fire was a bit of a fake. Otherwise perfect thanks!
"Parking was a concern."
"Extremely comfortable small cottage."
Very good standard inside. Great spot for exploring. Only issue was the very strong smell of cleaning products used which were a little overwhelming and had to be countered by opening windows for a good few hours. Easily fixed though!
Thank you Christine, for taking the time to give us your feedback on your stay at 1Tan Y Gerddi. We are so pleased that you found the cottage was comfortable and we can only agree that it is a beautiful area to explore around the Dovey valley. Thank you for letting us know that the cleaning products used were a bit overpowering. This is very useful feedback as we can do something about it for future guests, including yourselves should you want to come back and explore this lovely part of Wales again. Property Owner
"Parking is limited but friendly couple who contacted by text and let us know where to park."
Pub very close and very friendly locals. Comfy sofa and the king size bed was comfy.
"It was a lovely cottage, but I must have read it wrong though, because there was ..."
It was a lovely cottage, but I must have read it wrong though, because there was no garden to let the dog out, so had to keep taking her out on a lead
