    .. & did some wonderful walking, both really locally (from the door along the narrow road to Prenteg; and at the dam at Cwmystradllyn), and onto the Lleyn. Thank you again, and will be back!

  • "Beautiful area, accommodation basic, could do with better wash basin in wet room and kitchen facilities very basic - but the scenery and location perfect for a quiet break exploring the beautiful national park - WiFi access would be a real benefit as accessing mobile data not easy due to the remote and mountainous area - which made current online booking preferences for many local venues a challenge."

  • "This holiday was booked pre-covid with the idea of using for a base."

    However due to Covid and the poor weather (No one has control on that!), we ended staying at the cottage more than planned. With no Wifi, it was very difficult to use moblie data to research where we could visit. (We didn't want to book everything before going, we wanted to see what was in the area to explore). Also because we ended up having to spend more time there, the cooking facilites were too basic. Not the cottages fault, they did explain, just as already said -booked pre covid. (We had planned to be eating out more).

  • "A lovely base for our week in Snowdonia that gives easy access to many of the must see and do attractions in the area."

    There were a couple of minor issues around the power supply and tv remote which were sorted quickly and efficiently by the owners. The stairs up to the first floor bedroom are difficult to climb and are not suitable for anyone who has mobility issues - this is clearly indicated in the advertising material and should not be ignored. We had a very enjoyable time at the cottage and are very happy to recommend - with the caveat about mobility issues and the staircase - to anyone who is looking for a base that gives easy access to a most beautiful part of the Welsh countryside.

    Thank you for your feedback and your comments. This is very important to us. We have purchased a new TV for the property. We do advise that the property has steep steps in the property description. Property Owner

    It was spacious yet cosy. Lots of beams and flagstone flooring. There is a lovely little patio area to enjoy the sunshine ( as we were there in october there wasnt much sun) The cottage is tucked away from civilisation and we cant wait to return. This is easily the most enjoyable stay away we have had. North wales has lots to offer and all fairly close to the cottage. Highly recommended.

  • "Wonderfully peaceful and tranquil location, which was exactly what me and my wife were looking for."

    This cottage was excellent for our dog as he had free reign of the garden, and an adjoining wooded area with the beach only 4 miles away. The owner was very accommodating and just left us to it, which helped settle us in. The town of Porthmadog was close enough to drive to and back without the takeaway food getting cold, and other tourist locations such as Betws Y Coed and Caernarfon castle were reasonably close. The accommodation was clean and cosy, the stairs was tricky but this is well advertised and added a quaint twist (literally). Everything is provided, however remember to bring towels And stop at a shop on route for tea bags milk and coffee if you require a brew after your journey. There is no WiFi, and the Mobile signal is sketchy inside but fine out in the garden and by the door. All in all this is a very dog friendly and tranquil location excellent for a rural retreat, and we will be definitely coming back.
