  • "Lovely, idyllic property very much off the beaten track, exactly as described on the website."

    Paul and Caroline were the best hosts - thinking of everything. Would thoroughly recommend and will definitely be going back.

  • "The owners had provided every single thing anyone could need and the cottage was spotlessly clean."

    They were there if we needed them but unobtrusive. Lovely couple indeed. The views were wonderful and you could walk out of the cottage and see streams and mountains. Could only hear birds and sheep. The garden was used by us a lot and although shared everyone kept to their own bit and even the shared area was not used very much by others as people are out a lot exploring the area. We didn’t want to leave. Would highly recommend.

  • "I thought the cottage would be nearer to Porthmadog but when I got used to the drive along the lanes it was a fabulous location, very relaxing and tranquil."

  • "Wonderful cottage in a wonderful location."

    The lane is a bit scary at first but after a couple or trips back and forth it was fine. Cottage is fantastic and everything you need is there (except food of course). Paul and Caroline were great hosts and checked if everything was ok after the first night. Can't fault anything and it was exactly what we expected and wanted for our stay. Many thanks.

  • "Possibly the worst the weather and driving conditions Ive ever been in."

    But I knew the weather would be bad so wasn’t bothered. All we wanted was a lovely cottage with a log fire. The cottage was remote and quiet. Very peaceful. Very clean and tidy and had everything we needed. A little colder than our own house but then it’s 500 years old so was expected. Would love to visit again the summer.

  • "A wonderful base from which to explore the area."

    Quiet property, a few miles away from the main roads, surrounded by lovely scenery. Walks from the property, or short drives to the coast or other attractions in the hills. Having the use of the charger for our electric car was a real bonus in an area with few public alternatives. Very helpful hosts.

  • "Caroline and Paul were fantastic hosts; tentative, friendly and very patient which our pup."

    Really lovely cottage to get away from it all. The cottage had everything we needed and the garden space was ideal for the dog and us, including outdoor seating and BBQ. Although the main garden area is shared with the two other holiday cottages patio area still very private. The valley is picturesque with lots of walks from the front door and a lovely stream running through. Great views out to sea as you drive away from the cottage back to the main road.

  • "Set in the peaceful Pennant valley, the cottage provides a real escape, even when there’s plenty of tourists around."

    The accommodation provides everything you need and the owners are on hand if there’s anything you need. We were lucky with the sunshine but if the large gardens are soggy, there’s the cosy lounge to curl up in after a long day in the mountains.

  • "The cottage was prepared perfectly, and the hosts had cleaned it really well prior to our arrival."

    It was very well equipped with everything we needed, including wood and fire lighting equipment to make sure we could enjoy the fire in the living room The only negative was that the bed was quite hard. I know that is a personal preference, but it was the only negative we had on the whole experience

  • "A fabulous old farmhouse full of charm and home comforts."

    What a delightful last minute find this cottage was, complete with a massive inglenook fireplace and 'secret' stone spiral staircase. Warm and cosy with everything you need supplied, with good wifi. Its set about 4 miles in the most wonderful valley with walks in every direction from the doorstep. We found the locally restored copper mine and climbed further up to see Mt Snowdon, didn't see or hear a soul all day, just birds, sheep and water flowing - bliss!

    The property description and photos are very accurate and the location was perfect for a rural, away from it all holiday. Plenty of walks nearby & my children enjoyed playing in the streams. The hosts are next door, give you your own space but on hand to give great advice on walks in the area. 100% recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area & we would definitely book again, a week was not enough!

  • "The owners met me on arrival and were very welcoming."

    The cottage is in a great 'away from it all' location so you can truly relax. It is also very close to Tremadog and Porthmadog which is handy for food shopping etc. The cottage has been recently redecorated to a high standard and is very clean. It is also very cosy and warm. All in all I would highly recommend staying here.

  • "We were the first guests to stay at this cottage which we found last minute due to a problem with the original cottage we had booked."

    It was the best cottage we have stayed in , lots of original features felt very homely, the garden was perfect for our dog to roam about very secure. The property is set in a beautiful place amazing views all around, the only sounds you heard were the birds, sheep utter bliss!!! The owners who live next door were very welcoming and helpful. Lots of interesting places to visit nearby, Porthmadog is only a 15 minute drive with shops, ie Tesco,Aldi,Lidl and eating places. We felt completely relaxed after staying here and have already booked for next year!!!! This property is differently at 5 star plus.
