  • "Amazing modernised, clean, spacious property right in the middle of the Welsh countryside."

    Views spectacular. It is quite rural, which we love, therefore if visiting tourist areas on coast, will be at least 40 min drive. We did longest Zip line (Zipworld) and Snowdon railway (both 1hr away), another Zipworld location (FForest) high ropes etc (20mins away). Bewys-y-Coed (20 mins away) has good eating out options (reminds me of Aviemore in Scotland). Cottage well worth the money and would have loved to stay longer. I'm sure we will return. Only very slight negative as a little noise transference from neighbouring cottage to connected bedroom that had guests for a few days (Up until 1am).

  • "The house was excellent could not fault it."

    But it was more remote than we thought . Nice pub the crown, only 20 mins away and very friendly. We had a nice relaxing stay.

  • "Our group stay for a week in a very modern, spacious, clean, beautiful home."

    The location is also isolated, we chose this property for those reasons and the views from the patio area are wonderful! The driveway is very spacious. The house has pretty much everything you would need for a stay with family or a group to visit North Wales. Those living in a big busy city will love the peace and quiet this house and the whole of North Wales has to offer. Waking up to nature of birds chirping and lambs/sheep's grazing the grass. Our group hiked Snowdon, visited Portmeirion, Llandudo, Aqueduct canoeing, Stack lighthouse, Bala & Bodnant garden during our stay. Thoroughly recommend this house.

  • "Great house, 7 of us stayed for a weekend to climb Snowdon."

    The house was big, clean and looked exactly like the pictures. The kitchen had everything you need to cook for a large group and the logs provided for the fires was a nice bonus. The host was responsive and helpful. Would happily stay again!

    Lovely views and great location for exploring north Wales. The cottage was immaculate and was well equipped. Brilliant comms from the owner, who sorted electric car charging for us and kindly posted an item we left behind. Highly recommended.

  • "What a wonderful house in gorgeous countryside!"

    Everything is to an extremely high standard and there is pretty much everything there you could want. There were five of us, aged up to 92 and all were so impressed. The beds were extremely comfortable, the bathrooms spotless, with excellent showers and loads of hot water. The kitchen/diner was huge and looked brand new and it was perfect for sitting around and chatting after a long dinner. The second sitting room, with its huge sofa and log burner provided a very comfy spot to doze in front of the after a long day out and about. We really could not have asked for more. Only two things to be aware of - the stairs are quite steep, so keep in mind if any guests are older, or less able to climb. The drive up to the house is on very narrow, fairly steep country lanes and it is quite a trek to get off the hill. Not for the faint hearted. And not easy to pop out for a pint of milk - so just be prepared.

  • "A fantastic holiday house."

    The house was exactly as listed. We loved sitting on the patio watching the panaoramic view. Watching buzzards every day and a red kite fly right across below us were treats for us. The new drive way was appreciated. The extremely comfortable sofas, two lounges and lots of space meant we could be together when we wanted but also had room to spread out.

  • "House was great location with stunning views."

    House size was perfect for us. The only niggles we have were that we had to wash the plates and mugs again as they were dirty, food cupboards had crumbs from the previous people and they left very little handwash. However it was a great stay and had everything that we needed there (drying racks, coat hangers,l large oven,plenty of space to relax. The owner was very fast when the toaster blew a fuse which was very reassuring. The bedrooms are good layout and a spacious family bathroom. We got a Asda delivery on the first night which made it easier and went on plenty of days out which were easy to get to in this location. Also I would say to take a kite, field next to the house was perfect.

    I’m disappointed that you did not inform me of these findings when I spoke to you the following day after your arrival and when I bought the toaster over to you at the end of the week - this would have given us the opportunity to discuss further. Angela Property Owner

    Farm traffic use this road. Sometimes difficult to negotiate past other vehicles. Otherwise the property could not be faulted.

  • "This was the most peaceful holiday we have ever had, even allowing for having three children with us - 7 year old, 6 year old and 2 year old."

    The "cottage" is so far away from any neighbours, main roads and aircraft flight paths that it can be almost silent at night. Having said that, with reasonable transport, one can get to most interesting parts of North Wales within half an hour or so. The "cottage" is actually an extremely well-converted farmhouse of considerable size. As stated, we were a party of four adults and three children and still had a "spare room". The twin living rooms were wonderful when the weather was less than clement and the patio superb in good weather. We found the kitchen to be second-to-none with superb facilities and ample supplies of all necessary items. Our initial "gripe" was the difficulty my car had in getting up the considerable slope to the site, but this wasn't so bad without all our luggage on subsequent days. However, I would not recommend anyone with low profile tyres to attempt it - I have more than six inches ground clearance! Prior to our holiday, we were kept informed at all stages about the precautions to take, what we should be aware of and any further information that we needed, including excellent directions. Altogether, I cannot praise this site enough; we had a wonderful week and all of us, children included, were very sad to have to leave.

We visited Bala, Conway and Betws-y-coed. A hot tub on the patio would make this place even better. We had a barbecue one evening. We found the time went too quickly.

    It’s location was ideal for us to explore every corner of North Wales and after busy days it provided the perfect place to relax - secluded and quiet.

Having returned to reality we certainly miss waking up to the views!
