"Absolutely gorgeous cottage in a great location."
Well equipped with everything you could need for a week away. Beautifully decorated for Christmas at the time we stayed. Cannot praise it enough, we'll be back.
"Couldn't regulate heating system as tjwrw was NO thermostat to alter, even though local instructions said there was one in the kitchen, the place needed a good dust and polish, the bins were full of recycling in the kitchen, and NoT emptied from previous occupants."
There was NO suitable outside lighting and it was very dark when we came back from our trips. To negotiate the gate and pathway caused some concern as I'm disabled with knee issues... overall a quaint cottage that could do with some tlc and attention to cleaning the rooms and bathrooms..facilities were old and outdated.
"Enjoyed our stay, it had all we needed to stay there ."
The dogs were welcomed ,it was great for them with an enclosed garden. It was a long way up a single track which was closed for road works so we had to find another way , that wasn't a big deal but a little un nerving . If I have a tiny criticism it would be the cobwebs and dust on the beems. Nice host lovely fella , greeted us with a smile .
"Lovely peaceful scenic place great host would recommend."

Beautiful cottage set in the hills of llanbedr y cennin perfect relaxing sanctuary close to local towns and not Anglesey … thank you Richard for your hospitality and kindness
"The cottage is brilliant & the log burner amazing."
Such a peaceful place & serene. Richard was very helpful & knowledgeable. Thankyou
"A gorgeous cottage with fantastic views."
Ideal location for both Eryri National Park and coast. In a very peaceful location. The host who lives locally was such a nice friendly guy who was available if you needed him. He was very helpful and made our dogs welcome too. If you love the mountains and the sea then this is a place for you. Ideal for trail running, cycling, long walks & surf snowdonia is just 3 miles away.
"Apart from needing a ladder to get into bed (I’m only 5ft!"
but it was very comfortable after I got on) everything was fine. Great wifi, log burner, views and PEACE The weather was great and we visited a lot of interesting places. Richard was excellent
"JUST A FANTASTIC COTTAGE AND AREA FANTASTIC BREAK WILL BE BACK DEFFO"
"Wow what a stunning cottage, with all the original features, big open fire at night, lovely and cosy lovely host, great surroundings for walking the dog."
Great location for sightseeing and beaches. Would definitely return
"Wonderful stay, beautiful cottage , very cosy with fab views."
"The cottage was in a lovely location with amazing views."
It had everything in it you need for your stay but some things would benefit with being updated. We had some nice days so took the dogs to the beach which they absolutely love. A trip to Betswy Coed is a must.
!!! Where to start, the cottage was everything we wanted and more, cosy, period features, views, location etc etc, beds were so comfy as well zzzzz, richard is a great help and such a nice man as well, he kept us stocked with logs and eggs for the week and cudnt speak high enough of him , it was our 1st anniversary break and had a week full of day trips and cosy meals at home, the cottage is about 15m drive into conwy, and other places like betwsy-y-coed, caernarfon and snowdon is 30-40 min drive away, we will 10000% stay again and would say to anyone going to north wales that this cottage is the perfect place for you .
"The property is a wonderful escape for the hustle and bustle of real life."
It's cosy, with all the amenities you may need. The wood fire is a lovely bonus, and our host Richard was fantastic and more than helpful. We will definitely book this cottage again!
"Beautiful cottage full of character set in a rural location with amazing views."
Really enjoyed our short break here, only wish we could have stayed longer.
"We had a short break (3 nights) at Pant Yr Iwrch and could not fault it!"
As soon as we arrived it reminded us of the cottage from the film 'The Holiday' such a peaceful setting with amazing views! The cottage itself was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. I would recommend doing a small shop before arriving so you do not have to tackle to roads at night. Beds were comfortable and we all slept really well. Had a chat with Richard who was able to tell us some places of interest to explore, thank you for your hospitality! Overall I would highly recommend booking and we just wish we had stayed longer!
"Beautiful place enjoyed it very much we have rebooked for the summer ."
. superb spot .
"Needs a lot of TLC fantastic views owner very nice man ."
Roads tight and tricky cottage needs repairs a good clean and decorating some new more comfortable furniture .
Many thanks for your feedback and I am glad you had a good welcome and enjoyed the fantastic views which are due to the property location which does involve approaching through the rural Welsh landscape. The property is cleaned on every changeover but we will also be doing an end of year refresh. We understand that furniture can be subjective according to individual tastes and while appreciating your comments, can advise that we have chosen furniture specifically in keeping with the character of the property.

"Lovely and warm cottage, clean and a very comfy bed."
We had a problem finding the cottage but locals very helpful. Driving up the single track road was a bit hairy but once at the cottage you are rewarded with the most amazing views. We unfortunately only had one night from our weeks holiday, we had to return home urgently.
"We loved our stay in Pant Yr Iwrch - it was such a relaxing & peaceful place to escape to."
The cottage has been very thoughtfully renovated with great facilities. It was refreshing not having reams of information to read through on arrival & were able to discover what we needed when we needed it very easily - the lights in the old bread oven were a nice surprise a few days in! We soon got used to driving on the narrow roads to the cottage & loved the walk up to the waterfall suggested by Ben. We’d previously stayed nearby so it was nice to have some local insight to what was worth doing in the area other than the usual activities. Sandra & Ben were very informative & welcoming and really made us feel at ease. Thanks for a lovely week!
"Richard was friendly and such an interesting person to chat with."
The views were incredible and there was no shortage of quirky features to explore. The kitchen had everything we needed and there was space around the table for all of us. We loved the wide array of puzzles and dvds, they were appreciated after a long day at zip world! We can't wait to return and see how the rest of the place has progressed.
"The cottage was really cosy and homely."
It was a wonderful base for a holiday and a lovely spot to curl up in the evenings while the kids slept.
"The Postcode is essential and accurate to find the property."
Directions in the description could be more detailed if you dont have satnav. Very nice area, garden and views. Quite rustic accommodation and would be enhanced by updating the kitchen especially when you have 6 people to feed. Beds were very comfortable and linen were very good quality. Bathroom was good. Smell of oil in the garden depending on the wind direction and sooty smell in the lounge.
"We had a fabulous stay and the house was really amazing/"
"Old Rustic Charm in a Beautiful Setting."
Amazing Views of the Conwy valley. Peaceful and Relaxing with tranquil gardens and lots of space for children to play and explore. Ideal for Dog owners and walkers.. Helpful and friendly host.
"This must be the most magical cottage I have ever stayed at."
The place has got tons of character, amazing furniture, and spectacular views. All the things N-Wales is famous for are within close reach (the mines, the beaches, the mountains), and the routes to get you there are a delight to drive. Host Richard is a real gent, who went above and beyond when we ended up with a flat tyre. Can't say enough positive things about the entire experience.
"Loved our stay ."
Cottage held a lot of history. Had everything we needed. If I were to be really picky - we ran out of logs for the wood burning stove on the 2nd to last night but this wouldn’t be an issue on most stays (would would normally be warmer than April) overall no complaints and we would book again.
"The weather was beautiful with stunning views."
The cottage was very nice with adequate facilities and good furnishings. It was warm and friendly with an excellent log burner. Beds were comfortable the only downside were an excessive amount of flies in the main bedroom, a fly spray had been provided but was inadequate for the amount of flies. We had a lovely time and the owner has great knowledge of the area and history of the cottage.
"We had a fabulous stay and would happily return one day."
This property is the nicest we have stayed in. Lovely views over a valley. Peaceful/ comfortable/ spacious. Our dogs loved it too. Richard the host is charming and helpful.
"Great place if you want a remote cottage, just one issue it needs sign to tell where to park your car as at night its difficult to fathom when you first arrive, other than that a lovely place."
"We had a lovely stay with family at Pant Yr Irwch over Christmas."
The cottage is warm and cosy, the kitchen is well stocked, and the beds and bedrooms are very comfortable. We also really enjoyed the new shower! While we didn't venture too far from the comfort of the house, we appreciated the beautiful views down the hills to Conwy and the coast.
"It's was pitch black when we arrived."
We did get lost locating the cottage, however having the extra Google link, description and photo did help up to finally locate the cottage. On arrival it was homely, warm with extra touches like dog treats for our dog. Having a fire really made the cottage. It brought back past memories from being younger. Suggested improvements: a cooker range, a door curtain - it got a bit draughty, and maybe lowering the bed. Overall a pleasant start to our Christmas. Thank you.
"Remote cottage set in the Welsh valleys of Conwy."
Beautiful place, cute cottage equipped with everything you could possibly need. The views are stunning from the cottage windows and front door. The beds where very comfortable, everywhere was clean and tidy. The owners are lovely, very helpful and polite. Would we go back? Definitely!!!
"We had such a great stay at the cottage, it was so peaceful with so many lovely walks around for our dog."
Really enjoyed our time there so thank you. Only thing I would say is sometimes the cleaning needed a bit more attention to detail for example a lot of cobwebs around on the door frames, on the ceilings in the big bedroom etc and there was sweets and bits under the sofa cushions but otherwise a perfect place to stay if you want a remote holiday let it’s lots of walks on the doorstep.
"Beautiful place with stunning views."
Very cosy fireplace and a lovely farm kitchen. Comfortable beds and bedding. The cottage is kept at a lovely temperature with the central heating. The silence was bliss, just the bird song in the morning. The garden is very dog friendly, being enclosed all around. Our two furry friends had a lovely stay. All in all one of our favourite cottage stays. Thank you to the owners for letting out this cottage for all to enjoy
"A relaxing and wonderful holiday in a beautiful location."
The owner was lovely - welcoming and friendly, as were his three little dogs. Fabulous walks straight from the cottage into the hills, neighbouring villages or down to the river. A good spot too for access to lots of amazing places nearby.
"The owner was very helpful and friendly."
For a get away and relax and no stress holiday it was ideal
