  • "We had a very enjoyable week staying in this beautiful cottage!"

    It was everything we hoped for and more, the location is remote enough that you feel closer to nature but not so remote you are completely cut off. We only used our car twice during the week as there are a lot of lovely and long walks on the doorstep. We spoke to the owner on the second day as he was passing by, and I was delighted to learn that he had done most of the artwork in the cottage. Just a small heads up for people with small ramshackled cars like ours, the drive up to the cottage is rather bumpy and pot holey so take it slow. Also we struggled to find the wifi code, it is within the wifi box and bin bags are under the sink. But I cannot stress how much we enjoyed our very comfortable stay here! We would most certainly love to visit again!

  • "The property was beautiful, great location close to the beach and all amenities, while still having absolute peace and quiet with amazing views of the green hillsides and sea."

    The property was cleaned to an immaculate standard other than a few cob webs on the ceilings and was well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The bed was unfortunately quite hard and uncomfortable which became increasingly inconvenient during our stay, and we also had an issue with the boiler as the hot water would only last a few minutes and then needed over an hour to get hot again, however one of the neighbors were instructed by the landlord to assist and they were able to quickly resolve the issue.

  • "The cottage and surroundings are idealic and absolutely stunning!"

    You do however have a problem with blue bottles, which I believe to be cluster flies in the window seels. Maybe also provide some extra mats for dirty feet! Also a problem with the hot water, which doesn't even fill half a bath and needs boosting constantly You could also do with pasta bowls and bigger glasses in the kitchen Please do not take this as a negative The cottage is stunning and I would highly recommend to family and friends! Just trying to give positive criticism in hope that it helps you see from a guests point of view!

  • "With dogs travelling with me, I’d suggest NOT cutting the grass without a grass box just before we arrive."

    It all came in the house. Please sort the dreadful noise that the outside kitchen door makes! The three outside doors all need a ‘pinning back’ facility .. they are ‘heavy’ doors and just blow inwards if left open … guests are using rocks to wedge them open and I would suggest this will damage the door surround. Downstairs was very chic … the bedroom, less so. Lack of colour, style and coordination in my humble opinion. Overall I was delighted with the accommodation however. I put the hoover out of sight … I don’t particularly want to look at a hoover on the wall for a whole week thank you. Nigel.

    It was spotless and well furnished and a comfortable bed. Amazing being surrounded by fields of sheep. The only thing missing maybe was a bin in the kitchen?

  • "This is such a lovely cottage perfect for a getaway from it all."

    The cottage was lovely and clean and really well kitted out can't think of anything I would say was missing. It was absolutely beautifully decorated and furnished. Bathroom was lovely and bed very comfortable. Highlight was the entertaining sheep in the surrounding field which were a constant source of entertainment in the evening when we were sat in the garden. Only thing I would highlight us the unmade road up to the cottage which us mention in the description, it really is a track more than a road which wasn't an issue for us but worth being aware of, the cottage is worth the trip. We will definitely be returning.

    Sunrises and sunsets are just amazing! We so enjoyed the peace and quiet of the location. The cottage was well equipped and had everything that we needed for a wonderful stay. Great to be able to walk just 10 minutes to the stunning Black Rock beach, a real bonus in a spectacular location of Snowdonia.

    Had a wonderfully relaxing holiday. Just what we needed. The only thing I have to say is that we thought that the mattress was too firm for our liking, but that's a matter of preference. Just being honest. Apart from that, if you want a quiet relaxing holiday, then look no further. Overall. Fantastic.

    They really need changing. For someone that doesn’t know the area they are so confusing. Why Joe have direction from the postcode that’s on the listing? That would work so much better. Instead you have directions from a bloody roundabout

    The location is wonderful, very peaceful and yet only a 10-15 minute leisurely walk down to the local beach at Black Rock Sands. We met the owner on our arrival (he was cutting the lawn at the rear of the cottage) and he was very polite and helpful in terms of giving us advice of things to see and do, and a little background on the cottage. The cottage itself is absolutely wonderful (inside and out). The attention to detail inside is fantastic and the views from the cottage and outside are both wonderful. We enjoyed spending time in the evening outside watching the sheep and lambs and listening to nature. We would love to return again shortly to this wonderful cottage and location. Thank you again to the owner for the warm welcome and the opportunity to stay at Hen Beudy. Matt & Caroline

    If it's solitude you want, it's ideal. Complete privacy and peaceful, you hear the lambs in the neighbouring fields that surround the cottage, and that's about it. The cottage is warm and cosy and good amenities. Plenty of parking for your car. No wi-fi as yet, but good signal anyway if you needed to use the internet. If you wanted the beach, just a 15 minute walk along the footpath. The mountains are almost in your backyard. And look out for Harry hare who loves to nip in the garden to say hello. Fantastic.

    It stands on its own but didn’t feel too remote even though I was staying on my own. It’s an easy walk to the beach or Cricceath and Porthmadog is a short drive (although the beach at Borth y Gest is much more picturesque. Garden at the cottage is a work in progress but there’s a really nice area for sitting out ( and plenty of entertainment from the surrounding sheep and their lambs, who obviously haven’t quite got the hang of tourists, judging by the optimistic stampede towards the house whenever I appeared! ). Love to come back sometime!

    Thanks so much for the feedback. Great to hear you had a good time. Property Owner
