    One small thing you should say on the onset that towels will not be provided because on your advert it says linen and towels are provided.

  • "Nice small cottage in a lovely rural area comfortable and cosy, maybe due to time of year there was nowhere to eat in the evening but we found The Goat Inn around ten mins drive away who did some good Food, the Giler Hotel had some very erratic opening times, we had a relaxing holiday and would return."

  • "I believe we left the cottage cleaner than we found it."

    But that may have been the fault of the previous people. The fridge was dirty and had to be cleaned before we could use it. The bed was lumpy but it didn't take long until i found out how to position body between lumps. More of an observation than a complaint - The tv is in the wrong position, maybe too high on the wall, but luckily the weather was nice so we sat outside most evenings. Same for the bathroom cabinet, a little bit to high for wife to use, she isn’t that short at 5ft 4in, I’m a little taller and found it useable. Yes it was next to the main road, but you quickly get used to the road noise so not a bother. The little stream that runs under the bridge was just perfect to fall asleep to in the sun. You can fit two folding chairs on the balcony and was really nice to sit and watch the sunset on the fields. We made use of the bbq a few time, everything was provided but we brought our own coals so used them. We used the washing machine, again placed too high to see where to put the soap so it went in the drum. The tumble drier is not free to use so we didnt. WiFi is slow, i was getting fast speeds on my phone so used that, this is not the owners fault, as the phone signal was patchy at best during our stay. Slightly over priced in my opinion.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you found some issues during your stay. These have not been raised before but we will look into them. The dryer is not advertised but we leave it there in case it is useful for some people and it is less than £1 per use. We hope you enjoyed your stay overall and thanks again for your comments.

  • "Great stay!"

    Just the right size for 2 adults and our German Shepherd. The cottage had everything we needed. It was clean and tidy. The shower worked really well and the oven heated up quickly. Plates, bowls, cutlery etc were provided. The view was beautiful looking across the fields and hills with a seating area outside, the sound of the stream was so relaxing and peaceful. The local pub was a short walk across the road (the pub also does food to takeaway which was great). There's off road parking behind the gate and the garden is fully enclosed. Would definitely recommend.

    Ideally placed for visiting Snowdonia. Very small point we arrived in very bad weather, so we did watch the TV. It would have been easier to watch if the TV had been a little lower.

  • "Area of the cottage was good, it is next to the main road so there was some noise from the passing traffic, however this was a minor problem and did not spoil our visit."

    The property is in a good location for a central base as the surrounding area has plenty of activities available to all ages. The internet connection was at times intermittent. Overall our stay was a busy one, with the property having all we needed to relax and recover from our daily activities.

  • "The place was very well laid out had everything you would need, hairdryer towels, and tea towels, but when the neighboring property was occupied later on our first day, we started to noticed a bad sewerage smell that got worse during the week causing us to leave early on the Sunday off our second week ."

    This spoilt our holiday as we could not sit out and had to keep the door shut. this was such a shame as we did like the property

  • "We had a great holiday, the cottage was perfect for us two it had everything that we needed, the pub was only a few minuets walk and was also great, lovely people and the best food."

    With drove to every destination in snowdonia that we wanted to see nothing was too far away and found other hidden gems too more local to the cottage. Would love to go back even if we didn’t do any sight seeing, just to sit outside and chill out.

  • "The "cottage" is no more than a studio."

    The photographs are very deceptive as it's a tiny space with just enough room for 2 people. It's advertised as pet friendly as it is accessed by an external metal staircase this would not be suitable for older dogs. It's listed as being by a road but doesn't say it's the main A5 into Wales it's very busy and very noisy at all times of the day and night. We asked for close to a pub and it is but you need to publish opening times as it opens at 6 and shuts at 9 in low season.The location is great to get to some beautiful walks. The owner seemed very friendly and there is everything that you need but the property is not good value for money. I couldn't wait to come home. Very disappointed.

    It was well situated and, despite being situated on the A5, traffic noise was never a problem (please note that my wife and I have good hearing!) It was a pleasant surprise to find a free gift of wine awaiting us on our arrival.

  • "This was a great little cottage."

    We have such a good time there and around the area. The only issue was with the internet. It only worked for the first night and I needed to complete so work while I was away so had to go surching for places with free WiFi. That was the only issue. The cottage itself was beautiful and such a lovely place to stay.

  • "A fabulous little cottage in an idyllic location."

    The cottage itself is small but has everything you need for your break and the bed is so comfy! The outside space is safe if you take your dog. If you want peace and quiet this cottage is for you! There is a local pub which serves superb food a 10 minute walk away, a local shop half an hour away. The town is a 10 minute drive away with lovely shops to wander around and great walks for the more energetic! We would definitely book this cottage again - if I were to have a holiday home, this would be it - just perfect!

  • "Great little place, clean and adequate but in need of some updating."

    Hot water runs out quick . My main concern are the steel entrance stairs which can be a little slippery, may be they could be replaced with wooden ones and the landing enlarged to accomadate a couple of chairs to enjoy the stunning view across towards Tryfan. Overall it was a great place in a great location.
