    “Melin Bach cottage exceeded all of our expectations and more.”

    The cottage is newly renovated so has all the modern amenities you could want, but keeps the charm in bucket loads. It was so nice to go on long walks in the mountains and return home to the huge roaring log fire. ...

    The cottage is newly renovated so has all the modern amenities you could want, but keeps the charm in bucket loads. It was so nice to go on long walks in the mountains and return home to the huge roaring log fire. Caroline and Paul could not have been more helpful and did everything they could to make our stay as comfortable as possible. They even leant us a lasagne dish! If you like mountains, you have to only look out the window to be surrounded on all sides by the snowdonia countryside. Peacefull and tranquil but at the same time in a perfect location to explore the Snowdonia area. We will be back! David and Charlotte
