  • "Very enjoyable stay at Rivers Nook."

    Pleasant position overlooking the river where we were lucky enough to see an otter. Lots of birds and the sound of the resident owl. Rivers Nook, although small, had everything we needed including lovely neighbours. Good communication with the owner and straightforward instructions regarding the property. We will definitely return and we recommend to others.

  • "Lovely stay, the cottage was comfortable and clean on arrival, I would update the fact of a private garden then access to the river and lawn as we tried to however was told by another person in a different chalet that we are not allowed on there, I feel this affected our stay as part of our payment for this cottage went towards being able to go in the river/sit by the river with the dog etc."

    Other than that, nice holiday.

  • "It's a lovely setting just by the river."

    However the farmers field just outside the patio has his cows crossing to it and is unusable by us and our springer. The bed is very comfortable, insuring a good nights sleep. A tight squeeze as little space at the foot of the bed! Hot water scolding hot, but found the boiler and turned the stat down. Enjoyed our stay, relaxing and peaceful. Whilst it is compact it has everything you need. Patio for dining and relaxing on the warm sunny days. A good base from which to explore the area's villages and lakes. Not as full of tourist as North Wales.

  • "Lovely location - beautiful countryside lots of walking routes about."

    No village shop but not a problem as knew beforehand and went prepared. Riverside location lovely rural views - sheep, pheasants, red kite, squirrels etc. Accomodation is small, but again knew beforehand so not a problem. Well equipped kitchen, cd player, tv, wifi access. Close to Lake Vrynwy and Lake Bala.

  • "Location lovely & accurate description of that."

    Owner done great job of making the garden secure for pets. Plenty of hot water which was good, & everything worked. However that is where the positive ends. The chalet is by no stretch of the imagination stylish & contemporary as you describe. The bedroom & bathroom are so small & cramped that you could not dress/undress in them. Ample crockery / cutlery etc but the kitchen cupboards needed sorting & at least one emptying to allow room to put your own self catering stuff. We had boxes on the floor, which in a small place is not ideal. Lounge area seating not good - one of the 2 chairs looked broken underneath so a good job they were close together so it didn't tip over. Just no degree of comfort at all inside & as the level of cleanliness very mediocre the overall feel was grubby. But all this has been passed on to your Customer Care team & we are awaiting feedback as we returned home after only 1 night. Still waiting for that! The reason we didn't contact either you or the owner before returning is that nothing could have been done to rectify the main problem which was down to lack of space & comfort. We expected small (we are small at home) but that for us was not acceptable. I think your description of the chalet should include dimensions so people are aware of what to expect

    Lovely chalet in beautiful surroundings. The New Inn pub is a 5 minute walk away , serving good ale and tasty food..We had our dog with us and both the chalet and the pub are dog friendly..I have no hesitation in recommending Rivers Nook..

  • "Amazing location!"

    So cozy and has everything you need. The view is magnificent and even better than the pictures. There is an enclosed garden and there is fencing so it was completely safe to let our dog out without worrying (unless your dog is used to jumping high, then you may need a longline as there are lots of birds and sheep with lambs nearby). He settled in straight away and really enjoyed the place too. There are two nice pubs 5 minutes walk away, and the people were so friendly and accommodating, which we appreciate when our cocker spaniel was a little excited by his new surroundings. I recommend the Red Ale in the New Inn! There is a lovely walking trail, through the Berwyn mountains just a little further up from the New Inn if you like, but the place is perfect just to relax as well. A nice drive out to Lake Vrnwy provides more beautiful views and the pheasants pottering about the place were lovely to watch. The local shop was a bit of a drive out through to another village if you are self catering, just as an FYI. We will definitely be back!

    What a lovely place! A warm welcome from Kevin the owner, including a quick phone call beforehand to check we had directions. The facilities of the cabin were fabulous, couldn't have wanted anything more! Little things like free tea and coffee, and even some fresh milk in the fridge for us to set us up for our arrival. We settled in straight away and what a bonus it was to have a little garden at the side of the cabin and all enclosed - perfect for us as we had our dog with us. The setting is bliss - babbling river, private outlook and all sorts of animals in the field across. The accommodation was spotless, had lots of information about the cabin itself and the surrounding areas. We would highly recommend and would love to return in the future!

    Great food in the Tanat valley inn (highly recommended). Could benefit from some new cookware but we ate out so it didn't bother us. Owner Response: thank you for your comments.

The property

A delightfully cosy, detached cedar wood cabin, one of a group of nine, situated at the head of the River Tanat, in the pretty village of Llangynog.

Offering lovely, contemporary and stylish accommodation, surrounded by the Berwyn Mountains, and boasting stunning riverside views, this cabin provides an ideal base for a couple seeking that romantic, get-away-from-it-all break.

It's so tranquil here, you can enjoy the sound of the river running past, and take in the stunning views from the paved patio, while dining alfresco or simply relax with a glass of something on the lawned area which overlooks the River Tanat, after a busy day exploring.

This lovely cottage offers open plan accommodation and boasts a large picture window overlooking the patio and river with a comfortable en-suite double bedroom.

Only an hour from the magnificent beaches of the Cambrian Coast, and a short distance from the start of the Snowdonia National Park, this pretty cottage is an ideal base.

There is plenty of walking, cycling, fishing and watersports in the region to enjoy if you are the more active person, alternatively you can simply unwind by the riverside and potter around the lovely local area.

The cottage is also within easy reach of the fabulous Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall and Lake Vyrnwy.

A lovely cosy romantic cottage for a couple to be enjoyed all year round.

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.
