    Walks are on the doorstep and Porthmadog is a short drive away when you need supplies. There is also plenty to see in the surrounding area. The cottage itself has everything you need and the welcome basket is a lovely added touch. Hazel & Barry have gone out of their way to provide an ideal getaway.

    The furnishings are very comfortable and there is WiFi and Sky TV. The conservatory looks out across countryside and we spotted lots of birds and butterflies during our stay. The weather was unusually hot for September and we were grateful to be able to sit out in the garden under the shade of the trees. There is only one downside to the property and that is the very busy road, everything else was perfect.

    We're so glad that you both enjoyed yourselves. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do with regards to the busy road. Property Owner

    The conservatory looks out over the garden onto lovely marsh land and a wood, it's a great spot to enjoy the view and read. The road noise is noticeable in the living area but not in the bedroom. The triple glassing does make a big difference. The location is great for exploring the Rhinogs, Moelwyns, Portmeirion, the coastal path. You can even do a couple of walks directly from the house. We'd stay again.

    Thank you for your feedback and yes the secondary glazing is great! Hope to see you again. Property Owner

    Perfect location for walks (National park within walking distance), site seeing and eating out (pub within walking distance). We visited a few places (Porthmadog, Criccieth, Ffestiniog and Pwllheli). The accommodation had everything we needed, it was lovely and quiet even though the road is in front of the property. The bed was comfy and the views were lovely. It was a lovely cosy retreat. It was a little dicey leaving the property due to the blind bends and fast traffic but there is a mirror opposite to help.

    Perfect for 2 people who want some time away to relax and recuperate. The cottage was immaculately clean on arrival and has all of the necessary facilities required for an enjoyable stay. A thoughtful welcome hamper left was lovely to find and everything is of a high standard. A lovely pub for drinks or a meal is only a 2 minute walk up the road and the property itself has a private garden and patio area. The cottage is on a busy, main road; the only issue being pulling on and off the drive - reversing in is the better option and there is a mirror on the opposite side of the road to assist seeing oncoming traffic. Highly recommended place to stay.

    The cottage was immaculate and was very beautiful designed throughout. Bonus was the conservatory overlooking the view. Spend most of our time in here. Would have loved a table in here so we could have had our meals overlooking the beautiful view. There are walks on your doorstep which we enjoyed. Traffic is busy and you do here the road on your first day but you soon become accustom to it and you don’t notice it there and just switch off. Was tricky at times to come out of the property as the cars go fast down the road both ways and don’t slow down. But you get use to it during your stay. Overall a wonderful experience and enjoyed staying somewhere different as we love North Wales and have traveled to most places.

    A real home from home.We loved sitting in the Conservatory which had wonderful views. The walks through the nearby woods , around the lakes and up to the Railway is a must. The only one downside is the very busy road the cottage is on with large lorries as well as cars wizzing by at speed. You need to be very cautious when getting your car out of the driveway.It is also quite noisy when sitting in the garden. The traffic noise inside however is ok due to thick walls and triple glazing to the front windows. The busy road, unfortunately, will stop us from booking again.

  • "The Old Smithy Cottage proved an excellent base for walking in the area, with multiple great walks right from the front door."

    The large TV with Sky and excellent broadband (60 MB upload) were much appreciated for the winter evenings. The cottage is nicely furnished throughout, with no issues. Two sets of double glazing per window meant no road noise, but exiting the parking area onto the busy road really requires someone out on the road to give direction, as the view to both directions of traffic is obscured until you have pulled out on to the (very fast) road; parking on the grass verge adjacent is much the safer option. The kitchen is a bit small, and fridge in the entrance lobby is a bit inconvenient, but these are minor niggles in what is a well-presented and welcoming cottage.

    The addition of the welcome pack was very thoughtful. The kitchen was well stocked but rather cramped which was very limiting. The fridge is in the porch, it would be easier to access if round other way. No cleaning products were supplied but I had taken my own in case. The step down into the conservatory could cause problems for someone with poor mobility as could the steps going into the cottage, I found it very difficult getting in and out of the bath to access the shower as there was no grab rail. The conservatory was very pleasant with wonderful views The cottage is situated on an extremely busy road with traffic going at high speeds so the noise and access can be very annoying. It also does not feel safe walking along road as quite narrow and no footpath in places The owners have put a lot of thought and effort into the property and it is a shame that the road is a major problem. For that reason we would not return
