  • "Beautiful cottage aga was a lot easier to use than we thought ."

    Local s really friendly. Cottage perfectly located to explore

  • "We had a very enjoyable holiday at the cottage very clean and comfortable the only thing we would criticise is the Aga in the kitchen there’s a lot of Rigmarole to light it ."

    It would be far more convenient to have a conventional cooker.

    What you see in pictures you will find excatly same. No stress for big family as Big size 3bedrooms with three shower/bathrooms make you life easy. All amenities are close by. I am happy as my kids and my wife was very happy staying over there.

  • "One of the best places that we have stayed."

    The cottage was comfortable, extremely clean and the attention to detail really made our stay feel that extra special - fresh chicken eggs, fresh fruit, milk in the fridge and a warm welcome where the owners made the effort to learn our names before we arrived, addressing our children with a friendly and warm hello. A great location for visiting the local area. During our weekend we had a Fantastic bike ride along the mawddach trail and a climb to rodneys pillar. We shall definitely visit again.

  • "Hosts of this cottage were great and helped cook our dinner one night but."

    ........ We feel AGA cooking is difficult in the summer, when you are out most of the day and the AGA takes hours to be ready for cooking. The same at breakfast, not ideal getting up at 7am to 'fire up the AGA'. I'm sure it's great for cosy autumn/winter breaks, better to install a small electric oven for convenience, a microwave doesn't suffice.

  • "The cottage is lovely and the owners very welcoming."

    The town is close and the locals are very friendly. The area is beautiful lots to see and walking in the area is rewarding but map skills are required as way markers are not always in evidence. But having said that one can’t get too lost and the views are spectacular. The facilities in the cottage are excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "On arrival at the cottage we were met by the owners who kindly explained about the cottage and facilities within."

    We and 2 other couples enjoyed a fabulous weekend taking in the local surroundings on short walks with shops and restaurants no more than five minutes away. The cottage had all the facilities you need for a cosy relaxing weekend however cold it was outside. It is located in a very quaint little village with lovely views when out walking and areas of natural beauty on it's doorstep. We drove home via Lake Vyrnwy which is only 10 mile from the village. This is one cottage we will return to with family and friends. Thank you Keith & Decia
