  • "A beautiful well equipped cottage and Caroline the owner couldn't have been more attentive, and left us a lovely welcome package ."

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Garreg Ddu in October, despite the torrential rain!"

    The property itself is beautifully clean, well equipped & cosy & the perfect base for so many activities around Snowdonia. The host has thought of everything, particularly if you are taking a dog, with sofa covers, blankets & even dog treats. I would recommend having a look in the book the host has provided with suggested dog walks around Snowdonia, we found some fantastic walks. The welcome pack with milk, eggs, Prosecco & Barra Brith (traditional Welsh cake) was a lovely touch. Cell B cinema across the road in the old police station is brilliant, particularly if you are in the 2nd screen. It’s like a huge living room & you can take your own bottle of wine if you’d like! All & all a fantastic holiday in a beautiful property. Would highly recommend. Linsey

  • "Garreg Ddu is a beautiful, well equipped cottage."

    The only reason I have not rated it as 5 is due to the parking. The cottage is in a narrow cul-de-sac with on street parking and a small lay-by. The spaces fill up very quickly. Caroline the owner was very helpful and friendly during our stay and recommend local places to visit and eat. She also provided a lovely welcome pack which included milk, cake and Prosecco! The local shops, cafes and take aways are less than 5 minutes walk from the cottage but evening dining is very limited. I think this is due to Covid as the local pub/hotel was closed the whole time we were there.
