  • "Lovely cottage in a beautiful location."

    Everything was fantastic.

  • "The cottage is great!"

    Stylish, comfortable, well equipped. Draft proofing around the period front door could be improved - the kitchen floor gets very cold overnight, though the house is warm enough. We rigged something after that using the doormat and some weights. A minor niggle is that the main bedroom could accommodate a larger bed - If you are both tall a queen size is a bit cozy. The pub across the road has a good pint, but I would not eat there more than a few times. The scenery in the area is fantastic, but unfortunately many of the lower level footpaths marked on the OS map are overgrown or blocked. A good example is the loop to the south of the valley marked on the map by St Mellangel's Church - This was blocked by uncleared timber after logging where it crosses the creek. The local lanes / small roads are a pleasure to walk. Do not drive to the Pistyll Rhaeadr valley on a sunny Sunday afternoon - the single track road with passing places gets jammed up and the car park full (£5).

  • "Cottage was lovely and very clean with everything you need."

    Garden was much smaller than it looked on the website but was okay and safe for the dogs. On the information given for the cottage it should be noted that the butchers, grocery shop and post office etc. mentioned are a 15 minute drive away and all you have in the area of the cottage is one pub! There are no cafes either. Beautiful countryside and surrounding mountains and not far to civilisation :-) We loved it and had a very nice time :-)

  • "During our stay there was live music in the village."

    It was great and we enjoyed it however the stage was in the area right outside our cottage and the music was loud until quite late in the evening (revelers continued signing until 2am). No problem at all for us but if you had young children sleeping in the front bedroom or don't enjoy live music, it would probably be an issue. Might be worth warning potential renters that this could occur?

  • "Not as clean as you would expect."

    There is no water pressure in the shower and it is hard to shower properly. Local pub, the food is not good. So you need to cook most nights.

About the location


Bala 13.2 miles; Shrewsbury 32.4 miles

The pleasant village of Llangynog lies in breathtaking countryside amidst the beautiful Berwyn Mountains and surrounding wooded hills and valleys. The area has a history of lead, silver and slate mining dating back to the 17th Century but today it is a renowned location for climbing, birdwatching, walking and cycling, with famous mountain bike trails near Dolgellau, and a mountain bike centre at Llandegla. Llangynog boasts two pubs, both of which serve good food and are perfect to relax in after an exciting day out, plus on the outskirts of the village is a down hill mountain bike centre. There is also an off road motorbike experience, which is set on a 1500 acre site further up the valley which needs to be booked in advance. Enjoy Lake Bala, a wonderful beauty spot, with excellent fishing, a variety of water sports including white water rafting and a lakeside steam railway, or visit Lake Vyrnwy, which has an RSPB centre, bike hire and a sculpture park. Also within easy reach is Llanrhaeadr Waterfall, the tallest single drop waterfall in England and Wales. This is a beautiful part of the country and is perfect for touring the rest of North and Mid Wales and even Shropshire.
