  • "It was a lovely welcoming cottage, very comfortable and Ideally situated in the village."

    Would of been useful to have a hairdryer there but that is the only fault if that's what you call it.

  • "Lovely cosy cottage."

    Well maintained. Well located for local facilities and great walks from the cottage. We had a great stay.

  • "The cottage was spotless and beautiful."

    It's in a great location and we had a lovely holiday, thank you. However, the listing mentioned bike storage and this was one of the reasons we chose this cottage. But the shed referred to is now full of logs and so there wasn't anywhere to store bikes. This needs to be amended in the description so others don't have the issue we had. But everything else was perfect!

  • "A well-equipped cottage."

    The turn-out from the drive onto the A5 is a bit hair-raising, but there's nothing that can be done about that.

  • "Fantastic cottage, our third stay, off of the main road so no vehicle noise, close to the town centre so easy access to everything."

    Highly recommended.

  • "Overall a very pleasant stay in a great location!"

    The internet was quite hit and miss and the shower pressure in the bathroom with bath was poor. It would have been nice if we had some washing up liquid/dishwasher tablets provided and also bin bags - had to purchase these cleaning products unfortunately. Equipment, comfort and location were all spot on and I would recommend this cottage for a lovely stay in Betws y coed.

    Apologies if you have and I missed it

  • "Lovely cottage, very comfy and cosy!"

    The only thing I would say is that I think there may be either birds or a mouse or something in the loft as we could hear a lot of movement up there. Apart from that it was a beautiful stay

  • "Lovely little bungalow, clean and well equipped."

    Heating in each room was a little inconsistent so took some getting used to. The bathroom light didn’t work when we arrived but was quickly rectified the next day. Very steep driveway and dangerous bend to pull out on so I wouldn’t recommend if you plan to stay alone. Might be good to mention on description. TV connection was terrible and kept cutting off and not reconnecting. Really beautiful bungalow and really well presented, just a couple of small things that would have made it absolutely perfect.

  • "Amazing location, lovely cottage, clean, homely and has had a kitchen upgrade and new double glazing since the photos were taken."

    Was really warm in a wet New Year and sadly didn't need to use the wood burner. The kitchen was really well stocked, as we did a New Year roast dinner and a great size fridge/freezer. Definitely would like return.

  • "Lovely cottage in a lovely setting, and we had a great time."

    The garden was nice and secluded to sit in (weather permitting) and the apple tree was a nice bonus at this time of year. Our kids now want to live there! Minor issues: The internet connection was rather flaky - intermittently very slow and dropping connections - I suggest you ask Plusnet to do a line test. Also, just personal preference, the memory foam mattress was rather soft and uncomfortable.

    Great base to explore North Wales. Property was tricky to find at first. Some detailed instructions would have helped. Would highly recommend.

  • "Fantastic cottage, was a joy, good off road parking, have rebooked for November."

    Only gripe was that some builders turned up at 8am on our last day to do some work !!! Fortunately we were up and about.. apart from that fantastic.

  • "It would benefit the rental if you could describe the parking area."

    It was in fact up a small slope right opposite The shop Trespass and the parking was at the back door access to the cottage, so it was very easy. The cottage was lovely with everything needed for your stay the kitchen was fully equipped. Betws y coed was a fantastic base to see all round North Wales. A Tip Book lunch at Castell Deudraeth and you get a free voucher to get into Portmeirion. North Wales is absolutely beautiful loved it and everyone was friendly and kind.

  • "Great location in beautiful Betws-y-Coed."

    Perfect base for the mountains. Convenient off-road parking. Attractive, cosy cottage. Well-equipped kitchen. Excellent wifi and central heating. Comfortable beds. Minor faults - sound system not working properly; outside could do with tidying up, especially to rear. Really enjoyed staying and hope to return.

  • "Lovely property, so clean, and nicely furnished."

    Very comfortable beds. Recommended for the easy stroll to a wide variety of places to eat. A nice feeling of isolation even with a 'main' road close to the property. I'd like to return given the opportunity. So happy with the week away in this lovely property

  • "Perfect in town location and quiet due to the cottage being located up a hill in back of stores."

    Cottage parking is in back of the old stone church (also up a bit of a hill) just past St. Mary's church and the Royal Oak Hotel. The lane to get up to parking and the cottage is directly across from a store called Alpkit (post code LL24 0BW) if you can't see the Alpkit store sign look for the Tresspass store sign.
