  • "Beautiful cottage in a lovely setting."

    The only down sides are a very uncomfortable mattress, in the master bedroom you can feel all the springs. We had to pad it out with towels and throws. Pillows very hard and uncomfortable. Hot tub very dated. All 3 head rest broken off and missing, not all the Jet's working. Other than that. A great place

  • "We really loved the barn!"

    We were 5 ladies that came to Wales to climb snowdon! Snowdon is abit of a drive away from the accommodation, but we felt like we had a little holiday too! The barn is beautiful, clean and spacious and is surrounded by rolling fields, full of sheep and tiny lambs! We LOVED the big hot tub and it was much needed after the climb! It is a self catering holiday so people should be prepared for that (we were) but we had milk left for us and toilet rolls and afew basic bits which was nice! We would have loved a frying pan but if thats literally the only thing we could have asked for! We enjoyed two nice meals in Yr Eagles near by and played darts in there and the lake at Bala is gorgeous and we went canoeing there! Honestly we had a lovely time and the accommodation was spot on! Really great!

    Well presented and comfortable inside. Reasonably well equipped kitchen. We had an issue with one of the showers but this was resolved quickly. Remember to take your own toilet rolls as very little provided.

    Kind regards James and Laura

    It's very clean and comfortable and the scenery is breathtaking. If We were to suggest anything it would be to put the name sign at the top of the driveway as it's tucked away so we'll and easily driven past.

    We particularly enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub following a day's sightseeing in and around the spectacular countryside of Snowdonia National Park. We would not hesitate to stay in this beautiful location again. Thank you very much.

  • "Our 3rd holiday to Wales this year and we were looking forward to staying in the barn."

    A lovely quiet location, stunning views over the beautiful countryside and room sizes are generous. However, we felt a little disappointed with the barn and overall felt it was tired and needed some attention and this holiday had cost significantly higher than the previous ones. The rusty old bbq looks so sad and neglected. The sofas had stains on them. Lots of cobwebs on the beams in the lounge/kitchen and bedrooms and by the doors. Not had a full dusting in a while. Place mats had seen better days. A toilet roll provided in each bathroom, thereafter buy your own. Mattresses were soft and you could feel the springs in your back. An issue with the upstairs towel rail which only had two bars working, the owner attended, then none came on and we requested further attention which did not materialise. The point of a towel rail is to dry towels, but they became damp and musty. Before leaving guest are to put the bins out, strip beds, gather up the towels, empty the woodburner of ashes. Really? this detracts from the holiday and enjoyment as a guest and the price paid should cover this service. We have had many holidays over many years and never once been asked to strip the bed. The timings on the information sheet just crossed out rather than a new sheet put in and this looked poor. Attention to detail is important.

    Than you for your comments, we have taken them all on baord Property Owner

  • "We loved the beautiful holiday home, loads of space, hot tub, log burner."

    ... Few down points for a uncleaned BBQ that we couldn't use even after trying to scrub clean. There isn't a washer dryer as advertised, only a washer. Hoover,sweeping brush and dust pan and brush, dirty, we had to empty Hoover, as it hadn't been emptied in a while. We like to keep clean found it a little difficult, could do with new cleaning products. Upper bedroom has a small door that opens out, like a little balcony. MIND YOUR HEAD, as the door is small you need go duck down, you can bang your head, as we did on a few occasions. Before leaving you are asked to put bins out and strip all beds ! For the price paid this is not something you should ask your guests to do. Family's take note that days out will mean a 30- 60 min drive as there are only a few tourist attractions near by. Bala is nice and can be done in an afternoon.

    The river running at the bottom of the field was a real bonus and so beautiful. The listing for the property could do with updating as there was no football table which the children were disappointed about. There was also no washer dryer, just a washing machine, the dryer would have been so useful as with the damp Wales weather as very hard to dry towels and clothes.

    Our stay was pleasant and enjoyable. We visited as two couples and the space this cottage offers meant you could all be together or enjoy times on your own. An incredible price for what you get it really is homely and peaceful. Highly recommend to any of my friends or family. Although remote, there was plenty to do. most activities are between 40 mins to an hour away. There is however, a lovely lake near by that offers many water activities which we took advantage and won't forget in a hurry either.
