  • "Beautiful property"

  • "Fantastic property."

    Well equipped. Garden was lovely and a real sun trap when the sun shined! Good position - short walk to Bala where lots of lovely shops and pubs/ restaurants.

  • "Lovely cottage - has everything you need and more."

    Beautiful views over the mountains and very peaceful.

  • "Beautiful cottage, fully furnished with anything you could want."

    Bedding, towels, toiletries, fully equipped kitchen; it truly felt like walking into a home rather than a rented space. Owner was lovely, welcoming and friendly (with two adorable dogs) and helped us to feel right at home. Views from the cottage are spectacular, overlooking Bala itself and the lake. Plenty of shops and amenities within a short walk so if you plan on an extended stay it is easy to keep the fridge/freezer stocked. 10/10 would recommend to anybody looking for a quiet, cosy retreat away in Wales and will hopefully be able to return again ourselves for another stay in the future.

    Really well equipped and some lovely, thoughtful additions for the festive period such as the extra fridge and freezer. The cottage was also beautifully decorated for Christmas. The welcome hamper was also such a lovely touch. It is only a short walk from town but a bit of a steep climb home. Alwenna was there with a lovely friendly greeting to talk us through the details such as heating / parking etc.

    All things we needed and more. My only thing I would like to mention is it would be great if there was a light strip or something on that small step from living area onto hall to bedrooms. (Similar to the small light on step into bedroom). Otherwise it was brilliant. Cosy, comfortable and an ideal place to stay. Lovely owners. Only had small chats, but very pleasant and welcoming. Thanks for a great stay.

    A comfortable and welcoming 'home from home' after a day walking the mountains. The only suggestion we would make is a safety handle in the wet room. The little garden with decking overlooking the lake is lovely.

  • "When we arrived the owner let us in and there was strong smell,that smelt like fresh varnish."

    I didnt mention it as I thought it would improve. It turned out that the smell did not disappear and affected my daughter and gave her head ache. I complained and was told the smell was from the boiler which had been serviced a week ago. They told me it should go away. It did not go away and they called out a plumber to look at it. The plumber agreed it was probably to do with it being serviced. I mentioned that they should have informed us of the strong smell from the boiler, owner was adamant he could not smell anything. I was disappointed with his attitude and response. The cottage itself was well equipped however it was dusty in places and there was evidence of woodworm in the beams. The upstairs toilet door and door leading into the kitchen kept jamming, which is a hazard.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are disappointed to read your comments as we worked hard to try and rectify all of these issues for you during your stay. We have not received comments of this nature from previous guests and so we are surprised at this. We thank you again for leaving your comments. Property Owner

After we have settled in our new home we would certainly consider the cottage for a holiday in 2021 if conditions allow as Snowdonia lends itself to a lot more exploration. And we would look forward to shopping again at Mr Roberts the butcher to sample more of his excellent products and ready made meals. (faggots and pork pies deff. at top of list)
