  • "We honestly had the most amazing holiday, the cottage was perfect for our needs as a family of 5."

    Our children loved playing outside, with so much to see and do. We hired a canal boat for the day, got the train up snowdon and then walked to the summit and back down again, horse riding, national trusts, visit the local pub, train rides. We had log fires in the evening playing cards with the children. We can't thank Brid & Gareth for making us feel very welcome. We can't wait to come back.

    We had some lovely welsh treats waiting for us and a bottle of wine on arrival. The cottage was very spacious , modern and had everything we needed. We had a great 3 day stay. Even the weather was kind to us. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

  • "Beautifully renovated cottage, everything about it was quality."

    Owners provided everything you needed & more. Was lovely to meet both Gareth & Bridget while we were there, and got to watch Gareth & his daughter working the sheep with their dogs. Had some lovely meals at Country Cooks cafe, watched a great demo at the Glassblobbery, and the cottage was a great base for exploring and doing activities. Can thoroughly recommend the Whitewater rafting with SAS Outdoors

  • "We had a great time in this lovely cottage."

    It was clean, comfortable and very well equipped. It was also nice and spacious. It is situated in a beautiful setting with very green fields with lots of sheep and rabbits that our kids loved watching. We enjoyed some really lovely trips in the area in spite of a very rainy forecast. Mr and Mrs Evans were very easygoing and welcoming. We were recommended this cottage by friends and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

    Could do with a downstairs toilet. The oven was not working, as it had packed up on the previous persons holiday, they had not had time to fix it. Especialy as it was Christmas holidays.

    Thank you for your comments, we have now installed a new oven. Kind regards Property Owner

    Couldn’t have asked for anymore in terms of facilities and comfort of the cottage. Only issue the fan on the oven was broken which meant our food took longer to cook. Other than that a perfect little break. We would definitely stay again and recommend

    Thank you for your comment. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your cottage and would visit again. We ask guests to contact us during their stay if there are any issues so we can look to make the stay as enjoyable as possible. Thanks again and we hope to see you in the future. Property Owner

    Great place to get away from the stress/hussle and bussle of city work. House had lots of space, very clean, with comfy beds, all set in a very quiet location. Hosts were very welcoming and helpful. We (mother-in-law, wife, 2 girls (8 & 13) and myself) really enjoyed the stay - location great for exploring Snowdonia/North/Mid Wales and Anglesey only 30 minutes to 1 hour 15 minutes away. Bala only 8 miles away down the road. Plenty of walks around the area with right OS maps. 5 happy customers.

The property

Corwen 4 miles.

This lovely detached farmhouse is located in the small scattered hamlet of Maerdy which sits between Corwen and Cerrigydrudion, in beautiful North Wales.

Surrounded by some wonderful countryside and situated on the owners’ 68-acre working sheep and cattle farm, this cottage is a perfect base for families or friends who wish to spend some quality time together walking and exploring this wonderful part of North Wales and the Snowdonia National Park.

Sympathetically and imaginatively renovated to a high standard, with good quality oak furnishings, this cottage retains many lovely features, such as exposed ceiling beams, deep window sills and an impressive red brick inglenook fireplace with slate hearth and woodburning stove.

The welcoming sitting room with comfy brushed suede sofas is a lovely place to sit and relax long into the evening, and the wood-effect tiled flooring, arranged in a herringbone pattern works beautifully with the well thought out interior.

The underfloor heating throughout the ground floor ensures an ambient temperature is maintained for your comfort.

There are two dining areas providing the ideal dining experience whether you choose something a little more formal in the comfort of the sitting room, where you can enjoy a family meal together, or the more casual setting in the spacious kitchen with its well-appointed modern cream units.

Upstairs, there are three stylish bedrooms all with TVs, a twin room and two king-size double bedrooms offering good family accommodation, and all serviced by the modern, family bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle.

There is ample parking to the front of the cottage with an enclosed courtyard at the rear providing a pleasant and private area where you can sit and chat over a glass of something chilled.

A five minute, stroll downhill takes you to the village pub if you fancy a night off from the cooking, and there are some wonderful walks from the doorstep with access to numerous unspoilt paths.

The popular towns of Corwen and Bala are close by with an array of shops and eating establishments on offer.

Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) is ideal for watersport enthusiasts with canoeing, sailing and kayaking available or visit the nearby National Whitewater Centre.

The Glassblobbery is very close and worth a visit or the Rhug Organic Farm, with its shop and café just a short drive away.

With so much to see and do in the area and so many attractions within easy reach, this cottage provides the perfect base for experiencing the tranquillity of rural Wales and fantastic local days out.
