  • "Lots of reviews have already covered the details of this property, but I'd like to share a couple of highlights."

    We stayed as a family of 4 (plus baby) and the property is simply exceptional. The owners haven't spared any cost throughout and have put real emotional effort into the property and it shows. Mari and Rhys (along with the boys and sheep outside!) are wonderful hosts. They were so welcoming and on hand throughout our stay - really friendly without being imposing like some hosts can be. - a big wow moment for us was sliding open the large french patio doors in the living room and bringing North Wales into it (yes the blue sky and mountains you see in the main living room picture). It was so pleasant to have the doors open whilst we lounged or had our dinner. - the games room adds another dimension to the property, and gave us another relaxing space to unwind. - the entire house is finished to a very high standard, is clean and spacious and tastefully decorated. The location is brilliant - it's quiet and away from immediate neighbours, lots of parking, and the main road leads to various attractions. Coed y brenin forest park which is 3 minutes drive is a great family spot. The experience Mari and Rhys have created here is simply one of the best in North Wales.
