  • "Cabin is a caravan, and internal space therefore very tight External area to is shared I."

    E. parking space which we used to exercise our dogs was then unusable when owner turned up for weekend. Very small for anyone wanting a nice break as cooking wasn't easy due to lack of workspace Storage also very tight as expected from a caravan.

    Many thanks for your comments. I am so sorry that you were not happy with the cabin. I took over this property a few months ago and have made a number of changes to the description to reflect the property more accurately. The external area is a driveway – enclosed, lots of space, lovely green areas, and beautiful views but it is not described as anything other than a driveway. I am happy for guests to use the driveway to exercise their dogs whether I am in the cottage next door or not. The cabin is situated in a wonderful remote location with miles of walking on your doorstep. There are numerous beaches within easy drive, and you are only 16 miles from the Snowdonia National Park. It is doggy paradise! Property Owner

  • "We had a great week's holiday and The Cosy Cabin was just right for us particularly in its location as we were central for visiting many tourist attractions and beauty spots in the area."

    The view from the Cabin was wonderful looking out across the countryside and the private parking was a great asset. Everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable was provided. We visited the Llyn Peninsula, Barmouth, Anglesey, Bodnant Gardens and Conwy. We also had dinner on the last night at Ty'n Llan in Llandwrog which was excellent and only ten minutes drive north of Llanaelhaearn with lovely views along the way. We would definitely recommend The Cosy Cabin.

  • "Cabin is clean with a lovely decking area with views to the Irish Sea."

    . It is snug and whereas it will sleep 4 adults, the second bedroom would be more comfy for one adult or two children. Can’t fault the place and some nice touches on arrival. It IS best to use A499 either coming from north or south, our satnav took us along narrow windy lanes for the final 6 miles coming from the south of England with limited passing places. Handy for snowdonia, Caernarfon, Porthmadog, Portmeirion, Harlech, Bangor , Anglesey etc. Very quiet location.
