  • "A lovely base for exploring Snowdonia!"

    A little distant from amenities (local shop, pub etc), but the property owner had thought of virtually everything (loo roll, tea towels - basically any of those household items that you’re likely to forget). The festive welcome pack was a really nice touch too (Xmas ale and mince pies)! Very clean and child friendly (snug, but definitely adequate for a family of four for a few days). The lounge fire makes the place so cosy! Would 100% recommend, and would happily return!

  • "Great little cottage and perfect for autumn break with our teenagers."

    Perfect location for accessing activities in the Dee Valley and Snowdonia. Would benefit from an extra seat / bean bag in the front room - teenage boys don't like sitting so close to their parents on the sofa. Also needs a welcome book about how to work appliances and advice about bins /recycling. Thanks for accomdating us at very late notice, we had a fabulous break!

  • "Nice cottage but quite dark inside, living room not comfortable only seating for 3 people, well equipped kitchen,beds comfortable."

    , if you have a dog there’s nowhere to go for walks there it’s a bit way out.

  • "Everything was perfect - exactly what we were looking for."

    The owner dropped round fresh towels halfway through our stay and was very pleasant and extremely helpful. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend.

  • "Ivy house is a nice place, very clean, modern kitchen diner, lovely bedroom with really comfy bed and a great bathroom."

    It’s let down by the sofa being small and not very comfortable and the chair which is also really uncomfortable. There were no instruction leaflets for any of the appliances or the tv. And no information booklet with doctor, chemist, pubs, restaurants etc. would definitely return if the living room furniture was upgraded.
