    The cottage was spotlessly clean when we arrived and the host was warm, friendly and very helpful. The location is just outside of Bala and if you enjoy the Welsh outdoors it occupies a central position for a variety of acivities (white water rafting, mountain biking, ziplines and more), within an hours drive. We certainly plan to return.

    Hi Adam , there is so much to do in North Wales and beautiful places to visit we very much hope you will be able to return for another visit. Until then thank you for this lovely feedback stay well.Regards Buddug Property Owner

  • "Arenig View offers really spacious modern accommodation."

    The owners have equipped the property to the highest standard with attention to detail and using only top quality products which results in a luxurious feel to the property. Arenig View boasts outstanding panoramic views and enjoys fabulous sunsets from its terrace and gardens. It is situated within an hour’s drive of many local attractions including Snowdon. Port Merion and Zip World for the young at heart! The town of Bala provides all your holiday essentials and when you need a relaxing day the train journey around Bala Lake or a trip to the local gardens and tea room are just the tonic! Arenig View gets a positive 10|10.

    The views from every window in the cottage were Breathtaking and beautiful to look at, not only in the day but at night aswell the night sky was so dark that I managed to capture the Milky Way and see an overwhelming amount of stars Myself and my friends stayed in this cottage and not once did we feel out of place or unwelcome, we were certainly well looked after and had an amazing day 5 break. I will most certainly be coming back as it was so easy to get to and everything around us was accessible. This is truly the best cottage and I recommend anyone and everyone to stay here.

  • "Air freshener diffusers were a bit too strong which caused some discomfort to the people staying."

    Otherwise everything was great the owners where helpful. The only other suggestions would be for some clearer signage on the driveway up to the holiday house as it wasn't very clear even when following the instructions.

    Thank you for your comments, I have to agree on your point of the Reed Diffuser not to my taste either . I hope you felt able to pop them outside or maybe in the boot room out of the way. Re the issue of signage on the drive way . Unfortunately we are restricted to a point on this and for this reason have tried to give extensive and clear directions to all guests via Sykes. We will always do our very best to' talk guests in ' who get lost . Stay well Buddug Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely time at Arenig View."

    The place is exactly as pictured- very clean, warm and cosy! The views were very tranquil and the owners sheep were so friendly - the kids loved them! It was a good break from the city and we didn't have to travel too far to visit places such as Mount Snowdon and Rhiwagor Falls which are both beautiful. There is also the famous Bala lake and the local shops which are only a 5 minute drive from the property. We would definitely recommend and would book again!

    Lovely to hear your feedback Ikrah, I'm glad our sheep behaved themselves. We are blessed to live in such a beautiful area and its a joy to know you've also been able to enjoy your visit to us. We very much hope you will visit us again soon Take care Buddug Property Owner

    When we arrived, the owner was very accommodating. The cottage itself was very clean and tidy in all areas. All essentials were there. The only thing I would recommend is having an iron at the cottage. I would definitely recommend people to book a stay here. It has a very cosy and homely feel to it, perfect for a little getaway.

    So please you enjoyed your stay and we very much appreciate your feedback. There is an iron in the boot room together with a small fold up ironing board, I'm sorry you hadn't seen this .

  • "The property was lovely, ideal for walking, on the plus side it had a "boot room" (an extra space to hang wet clothes) but no clothes washing facilities which would have been better."

    The beds were very firm but the pillows very soft, could have done with having more pillows available. As we were there over Christmas it would have been a lot better to have more than 2 saucepans or at least a steamer. No broadband for the last 3 days.

    Thank you for leaving this feedback ,we are aware Internet can be intermittent this is simply a forfeit for living where we do and it is mentioned in the details before you book. In hindsight we could have given you additional saucepans so please accept my apologies for this . We hope we can welcome you back again. Regards Buddug Property Owner

  • "We were very grateful that the owners of this property had installed an EV Charger."

    It's a Type 2 connection and you need your own cable. The charger uses the Charge Assist App, which was easy to use, and can be downloaded for both Apple and Android either in advance or using the QR code on the charger. The tariff was reasonable (Sep 2022: 45p/kWh + £1 each charge). Most important is the fact that, in order to charge, you must have a signal for your phone. EE worked. Virgin Mobile (O2) did not.

    Thank you for leaving this feedback I'm very sure other electric car users will find it very informative. Much appreciated Buddug and Mark Property Owner

  • "We wanted to have a central location to visit North Wales and found this amazing holiday home (Arenig View)."

    We were welcomed by Marc who we call our local tourist information :) You can ask him anything. In the house as a welcome a lovely bowl of fruits. The house is amazing. All you need/want when you rent a luxury holiday home. Together with the views, the environment, the lovely cats and sheep around the house it was a perfect location to visit North Wales. We felt very much welcome, had nice talks with Mark and Buddug and enjoyed every minute of the 3 weeks we stayed there. Was there anything to improve? Yes, one thing: a washing machine would be fantastic. When you stay for 3 weeks you need to wash your clothes. We found a launderette in Bala (Hoffi Coffi), but that was totally disappointing. Poloshirts totally ruined.

    So really sorry to hear about your experience at the local laundrette. We have considered where we could put a washing machine but unfortunately it has not been possible . I totally understand this is more of a consideration when you have booked for 3 weeks. May be some other arrangements could have been made had we known. It was lovely meeting you all .Stay well .Buddug and Mark Property Owner

    It is a new barn conversion which has been done to high spec and lived up to all its promises. As this is a new project Mark was willing to listen and act on any comments made. An excellent host who lives on site but respects ones privacy, he has good local knowledge and is very personable. Do be aware that this property is sem-detached,(fortunately we had good neighbours) which could also be rented for a larger group We have already recommended to friends and would be happy to return ourselves.
