  • "Our family of five have thoroughly enjoyed our week, welcoming the New Year in North Wales."

    The cottage was warm, comfortable and well stocked with everything we needed. The kids enjoyed some of the books and games and it was the perfect spot to spend rainy afternoons watching films and spending time together. Despite the very wet weather we managed to get out and explore the area. Highlights included a walk at Cwm Idwal, the Aber Falls circular route and walking the perimeter of Conwy along the medieval town walls. A visit to Bodnant Gardens, even in winter, is a must. Sunday Roast at Y Bedol was delicious and good value. We had a lovely Welsh rarebit, cakes and tea at the Ugly House and also really enjoyed takeaway pies and cakes from Conwy Bakery. Betws-Y-Coed was a lovely town for a wander and to grab some emergency waterproofs. We look forward to returning to the area in the future to tackle Snowdown Yr Wyddfa and to perhaps experience the area in the spring or summer. A big thank you to Paul for being such a communicative host. When we encountered a small issue with the dishwasher on day one, he drove 90 minutes to get it sorted for us. All information was clear and all our needs were provided for.

    Thanks Ruth glad you had a good time; hope to see you again soon Property Owner

  • "OMG, this cosy cottage was fabulous and had everything we needed for a great stay."

    It was a teensy bit difficult to park our large car on the single lane outside, but didn't seem to pose any problems for users of the road. The hosts were fabulous, gave us great advice after getting a puncture on our way home after getting lost! Highly recommend this wonderful cottage.

    Hi Robyn so glad you enjoyed your stay. Enjoy the rest of your time in the UK. Property Owner
