  • "Beautifully restored cottage retaining lots of original features."

    Very comfortable and clean. The owners were friendly and we appreciated (and enjoyed) the complementary bottle of red wine and cheese. Large kitchen with all mod cons, dishwasher, microwave, induction hob and first time cooking on an Aga stove! The lounge was comfortable and after a day out walking it was great to kick back on chesterfields, get the wood burner going and relax. The TV had all channels (Netflix, Disney+ etc) which was great for my niece too! Parking was off road, close to cottage too so not far to carry in bags and shopping. Location was very quiet too set up on hillside behind the church and graveyard. If you like quiet, quirky and quaint then this is the place for you. Would recommend.

  • "We were looking for somewhere to say as son's wedding was in the area."

    What a great find! We absolutely loved it, a beautifully renovated property, which was just to our taste. Nicely furnished, and a nice suprise to have the Xmas tree up. Owners had left us a bottle of wine and mince pies which was a nice touch. Owners are nearby so if you had any Q they can help. The cottage is part of 2 cottages so if there was a gang of you, be nice to hire both, it would be lovely to stay at Xmas. We have 2 dogs so usually look for properties that allow dogs, so this is the only reason we may not return but for non dog owners, I would highly recommend. We had a great time, you should be proud of the work you have done to the properties. Thank you

    Beautiful garden, good parking area (once you find it!) and great location for exploring North Wales. The owner is friendly with loads of local knowledge and tips for places to visit and eat out, he also provided a lovely welcome pack!

  • "Lovely old secluded cottage is well equipped and with plenty of space and a lovely garden if the weather is nice."

    Ample parking.Wi-fi connection is good and the smart TV a real bonus Local take-aways - curry and chip shop - are all very good and real value for money. Local grocery store is also very convenient. Interesting and very large bric-a-brac/local craft shop - The Emporium - is located at the end of the drive and well worth a browse. There is a lovely walk up through the woods at the back of the house, giving great view of Corwen and surrounding countryside from the top, The wood also contains a number of art works. The owner lives nearby and is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

    The period features, a gorgeous garden to sit in (which came with a visiting cat who we all adored) the welcome gift of bread, wine and eggs on arrival which was a lovely touch. The cottage owners were lovely too, they have done a wonderful job and we had everything we needed for our stay there. There was also a great little book which showed how all the renovations had been done, we really liked how the period features had been retained and restored. The town of Corwen is great for walks and we found a brilliant little café in the square which did the best breakfast baps. We would give it 10 stars if we could!

  • "The cottage was extremely comfortable and clean."

    It's Grade 2 listed so there were lots of little quirky touches. They didn't overdo it with the knick-knacks and ornaments, which can be a pain in some holiday cottages as I'm always terrified the kids will break something. The Aga was a lovely feature that warmed the whole cottage. Really cosy, high spec kitchen that was Mum's Den. Very peaceful setting, very convenient for reaching the centre of Corwen yet felt very rural. Great little walking trail at the back. Fab base for exploring Snowdonia.

  • "We've stayed in lots of cottages over the years, and this was one of the very best."

    The accommodation is spacious and generous - lots of seats! - and the interior design is traditional but also stylish, no musty antiques or dubious cushions! The two showers were both strong, and the hot water never ran out. Great wifi too - I caught up on lots of iPlayer! The cottage was really well stocked: lots of plates, glasses, cutlery etc, so we didn't have to keep washing up (I've stayed in cottages with only 4 of everything - such a pain!). It was spotlessly clean - I never wear shoes indoors, and I didn't pick up a speck of dirt on my socks. There's an Aga, which I loved: amazing for baked potatoes, and drying damp shoes at the end of a soggy Welsh walk. Steve and Lisa gave us the warmest of welcomes, and had lots of good ideas for walks nearby and further afield. We had a lovely holiday in a lovely cottage: I'd rebook Eyton Cottage without a second thought.

  • "Very comfortable and pleasant stay with a good location for visiting other places in North Wales."

    Our only comment was that, while there were two bathrooms, there was only one toilet. We managed because there were only four of us but it would have been more difficult should there have been the seven for which this cottage is capable of holding. The only other point was that (and it is a tiny point) was that there appeared to be no cutlery basket in the dishwasher. Other than that, we were extremely impressed with the kitchen equipment and the quantity and quality of cutlery and crockery provided.

    Thank you for your feedback. There is a specific cutlery tray at the top of the dishwasher as opposed to a basket. Unfortunately due to the historic significance of the building we are unable to obtain permission to add the plumbing for an additional toilet. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you again in the future. Property Owner

    It’s a listed building and has some very quirky characteristics that the owners have kept and make the building beautiful. The location couldn’t have been better for us, there is an amazing walk that starts at the bottom of the driveway including two waterfalls! And the lookout is a sight to see. We didn’t need to drive far for entertainment for the kids (7&13), there is so much to do within a 30 minute drive in any direction. We will definitely be returning for a take 2!
