  • "A lovely little cottage, cosy and with all the implements you need."

    The welcome scones were delicious, thank you Menna. Very peaceful. So much to see and do in the area from the coast at Llandudno to Snowdon itself, spectacular. The Conwy and Swallow falls were in full flow and the steam train from Porthmadog to Beddgelert an absolute must such a pretty village

    The owner was very warm and welcoming, she was only a phone call away and responded immediately if you needed anything, she even provided cakes, milk, tea, and coffee, so we could have a cuppa after our journey , It was immaculate throughout, the facilities were brilliant , the owner had thought of everything. The property was in a beautiful location the views were incredible, and it was so peaceful. We wouldn’t hesitate to book this cottage again, didn’t want to leave.

    Owner very helpful. Views across the mountains are absolutely superb. An ideal location for radio amateurs with easy access to many open sites of both height and interest not to mention the level lawn adjacent to private vehicle parking with raised outside table and seating.

    The owner gave us a warm welcome and we enjoyed homemade banana bread on our arrival. All facilities are as described and very comfortable. Our only wish - that there was a window looking out onto the mountains from the lounge area!

  • "The property was worthy of 5 stars, it was as described, beautifully laid out and a joy to stay in."

    As a person with restricted mobility I did have a couple of issues, the sofas which looked comfortable were not for me because they were very low and I would have had difficulty getting off them! Also the step into the shower cubicle was about 11” which made it inaccessible for me. Saying this the property is NOT described as ‘disabled friendly’ so, perhaps I should have asked more questions before booking? Our dog thoroughly enjoyed her stay and it as nice to know that the garden was securely enclosed. The scenery is stunning.

    Secluded away from the world this little gem is worth a visit. Walking routes around the area are fab close enough to leave the car behind with the exception of snowdon which is around 30 mins away. Comfort wise couldn’t fault it…. The bed is amazing had the best sleep so comfortable…. The hosts are also very nice to speak to, the added bonus of fresh milk and cakes on arrival were much welcome. Would definitely recommend and we will be returning at some point in the near future

    A haven because when the storm brewed up it remained peaceful and cosy inside despite it looking like armageddon outside! Had a really comfortable stay with all the necessities that one needs to rustle up good meals and replenish ourselves before heading back out into the mountains. In short we loved it and will doubtless find ourselves heading back in the not too distant future. Many thanks, Jamie, Clare, Mena and Mookie

  • "A cosy spacious cottage in a stunning location."

    We really enjoyed our week here, despite some pretty atrocious weather at times. The view from the cottage is beautiful and the setting remote and peaceful. This is a real ‘getaway’, which is also extremely well equipped - including a tumble dryer for which we were very grateful. On arrival there was fresh milk in the fridge and freshly baked cake in a tin, the cottage was spotless, and thanks to really thick walls and presumably some very good insulation, always cosy despite the exposed setting. Highly recommended!

    Stayed for one week 3 adults & 2 small children and it was perfect for us. The host communication was excellent throughout our stay. The homemade cake & flowers upon arrival started our holiday off perfectly. Facilities within the cottage are excellent. Modern facilities throughout. Very spacious property and everything is on ground floor level. Car parking for 2 cars on site. Wifi is free and a good connection speed. The views from the cottage are superb. Local walks are straight from the doorstep. It is on a working farm so the sights & sounds early morning are superb. Information leaflets are plentiful within the cottage for places to go or eat out. There is a utility room separate from the cottage with a freezer, washing machine & dryer, bbq and fold up chairs. All in all we had a fantastic stay in a wonderful area of North Wales. We will definitely return to this property with the possibility of hiring out the cottage next door as well as that is also excellent. Thank you again.

    The short drive from the main road up one track lanes (with passing places!) gives you that lovely feeling of being right in the middle of nowhere, but nearby neighbours are reassuringly on hand too. At night, it's peaceful and serene, with distant baaing, mooing and hooting to lull you to sleep. And yet within c.15 minutes, you can be in Betswy for top-up shopping, eating out & a lovely pint! The accommodation was extremely well equipped with all you'd need and more, beautifully clean everywhere. Beds were very comfortable and the 2 bathrooms ideal for our group. A huge tv came in useful for the occasional wet evening! The owner was instantly responsive by text for any queries and very approachable and helpful at all times. We'd all have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this charming Welsh idyll and would be delighted to return.

    Mrs Jones is delightful and she went the extra mile by decorating the cottage ready for Christmas and leaving a Christmas cake, wine and milk for us. The setting is stunning - magnificent views and the peace and quiet we needed after the rush of city life. And just to add to our wonderful experience was the birth of twin lambs the night before we left. We strongly recommend this accommodation which was extremely well equipped - we wanted for nothing. We can't wait to return!

Menna Jones is a welcoming host who has put a great deal of care and thought into creating an attractive holiday cottage which has everything you might need (and more). The situation is elevated, beautiful and very peaceful. From the front door and outside seating area you can look across to the mountains. There are walks from the cottage and also many interesting places to visit, easily reached by car, including waterfalls, castles, gardens, Portmeirion and Snowden. We found it useful that Tesco will deliver groceries to the cottage and there are plenty of good restaurants nearby. We would definitely recommend this cottage and hope to return ourselves.
