    Everything was great and we enjoyed it properly. The cottage was very well equipped, cosy and in the spectacular location. Couldn't wish for better. Thank you.

  • "Amazing view from the property."

    Picture doesn’t do it justice. Had a problem initially with the wfi, but after a reset everything was fine. Property very clean and as described in the description. Owner was helpful and very approachable. Throughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "We had a wonderful time at Hen Blaid, the cottage was really modern and clean and we really can’t fault the facilities."

    The surroundings are breathtaking with incredible views of Lake Vyrnwy, it’s a really calm, quiet place to stay. The facilities in Hen Blaid were perfect for us. The smart tv worked well and that shower is blissful. The bed is really comfy and there is plenty of storage for clothes etc. The one piece of feedback I’d give is the clock in the living room ticks incredibly loudly, you can hear it over the TV and it can also be heard from the bedroom so I did have to remove the batteries from that. Not a major gripe but worth mentioning. Overall my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hen Blaid and would highly recommend it as a lovely place to unwind.

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location overlooking Lake Vyrnwy, ideal for a peaceful relaxing holiday."

    The only issues we experienced are; no telephone signal, internet kept dropping out and television picture kept pixilating. The cottage would benefit having better signage on the main road. The addition of a fire pit outside for those chilly evenings for guests to sit under the stars. Also a BBQ for guests to make the most of the outdoors. However we would recommend the property and would book again.

  • "We were the first people to stay at this renovated cottage and it was absolutely lovely."

    Very well thought through in its design in an amazing position with exceptional views from the cottage windows (especially the framed view from the bedroom). Little extras that have come to mean a great deal over many years of holidaying in self catering accommodation were all provided. In particular - milk in the fridge on arrival, a bottle of wine and some Welsh cakes. A bath sheet (not a skimpy bath towel) and a supply of tea bags, coffee and sugar sachets (we had forgotten our tea bags so these were particularly welcome as the nearest shop is quite a way). I would suggest that supplies are taken with you rather than waiting until you arrive to stock up. The shower room felt luxurious rather than just functional and there were televisions both upstairs and downstairs. In short, exceptional accommodation and we would definitely return.
