    The bungalow was bright, airy and efficiently stocked with everything we needed. It was very comfortable and so my dog and I could really relax. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and hope to return in the Spring.

    Thank you for taking time to give feedback. We would love to see you and your dog back in the Spring. Glad you enjoyed your stay . Ryan Property Owner

  • "We are just home after spending 6 nights at Awel y Berwyn."

    We can not fault this cottage at all, everything that you may need is there. Most importantly the property is spotlessly clean from bedding, towels pots and pans. Nothing is to much trouble for owners Ryan and Lucy and the very generous welcome pack was lovely and a big hit with the children. We will certainly have no hesitation in recommending to friends and family and would return ourselves in the near future.

  • "A lovely and ideal property for exploring Snowonia and surrounding areas."

    Its feels like a home from home with everything you could possibly need supplied. On arrival you are welcomed with a lovely and comprehensive welcome pack and supplies to get you going. The kitchen area is well stocked, as is the rest of cottage if you want to travel light. It has a nice enclosed front garden which is ideal if you have a dog and/or want to sit outside to eat or relax in the sun. This is the ideal place if you want to get away from it all. There are lovely walks right outside the door and a nice little pub 2 mins walk away if you dont fancy cooking. Otherwise its about a 15 min drive to Bala for supermarkets and restaurants. The cottages location is ideal for exploring Snowdonia National Park or other areas like Barmouth to the south. We will definately be back.

  • "A very pleasant property with all the equipment you need."

    Welcome basket was ok, but half opened packs of biscuits and chocolates left by other occupants was not what we expected. There are 2 public houses in the village, with one closed for the foreseeable future, so very restricted if you want to eat out. There are no shops in the village, the nearest, a small corner shop and post office in the next village a few miles drive away. We just used the property as base to visit the surrounding amenities.

    Thank you for your feedback. I was mortified to read about half opened packets of biscuits as I pride myself on providing a well-stocked basket as there is no shop as you say. I haven't ever seen a half eaten packet in my welcome basket! However when you left I found the wine drawer full of what you describe and assumed you had forgotten it. Obviously it wasn't you and I must have missed that particular drawer when I checked the cottage and cleaned it ready for your visit. Please accept my apologies and I do hope you enjoyed your stay in Llangynog. Rena Property Owner

  • "The bungalow is lovely and we are definitely hoping to stay again very soon."

    This was our fifth visit to Llangynog although we stayed elsewhere before as the bungalow wasn't an option then. The village is great. Very quiet and relaxing with riverside walks directly from the bungalow and the pub is good too. We haven't eaten there but the food looks good and the landlord and bar staff are very friendly. The bungalow was very warm, light and comfortable with wonderful views. The starter pack was really useful too, thank you. The bed was very comfortable and the bedroom had lots of storage. We loved the ceiling! We didn't use the second, twin, bedroom but that looked lovely. The living room was large with windows on two sides and very comfy sofas and a good sized television. Wifi was excellent (you need that or you don't have a phone signal) and the kitchen had everything we needed with a huge cooker, large dining table and all the crockery, cooking dishes and utensils that we needed. The bathroom was great, very good powerful shower. We didn't use the dishwasher but the washing machine was good. Having two dogs it was easy to keep the place clean with no carpets to deal with. We would have definitely given it 5 stars other than that the garden, although enclosed, wasn't dog friendly for our little dogs as the fence has big gaps in it, so we had to put them on leads when they were out there. The road through the village isn't that busy but we weren't prepared to take the chance of them escaping. We knew that was going to be the case when we booked it because the photos show that and it wasn't a huge problem but a bit of chicken wire around the perimeter up to the third slat of the fences would sort that out perfectly. Loads of parking too, you could get three double decker buses in there so it was great for unloading when we arrived and loading when we were leaving!

    Thank you for taking time to review the cottage. I have taken on board your comment on chicken wire fence attached to the fence but am still unsure of how it will look. I would point out that the gaps you are referring to are just the horizontal spacing of the fence and not holes in the fence. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Rena Property Owner

  • "This property is incredible!"

    Fantastic bungalow in a wonderful location with friendly, efficient hosts. All the necessities and some nice extras which included the best and most generous ‘welcome pack’ we have ever experienced. To top all this, imagine our surprise when finding the hosts had added some festive cheer, Xmas tree, decorations etc. “wow!” Thank you. This property was a great place for both us and our loving Bearded Collie and felt private enough for all of us. The property was secure, complete with an enclosed garden for our dog, very clean, spacious, cosy, and comfortable with nice linens. Great for taking peaceful walks in the morning (to work off some of that wine coming later in the day). It is peaceful and quiet in the mornings and evenings, so you have nothing but tranquillity. This place will make you will want to come back and cook/eat out because the setting and views are just outstanding. Overall, we had a very relaxing time and have booked for a return visit next March

  • "One of the owners was there to greet us when we turned up, Gave us the keys and told us if there are any problems to just give him a ring."

    On our last night the boiler had a fault (not an issue as we were going to bed at that point) advised when checking out so they could get it fixed and they said they’d have someone out the same day to look at that. Not many places seem to do that anymore. The owners give you your privacy so it really does feel like a much needed break from social media and just to re connect with your family. The places to walk around there are just incredible. The dogs had a blast running up the mountains and having stare off with the sheep.
