    Mr Penny

    “Had a great holiday doing various out door activities, The cottage was ideally positioned for trips out to Snowdonia and also the beach.”

    There were a couple of good pubs within walking distance that both served tasty food.

    There were a couple of good pubs within walking distance that both served tasty food. The accommodation was very comfortable and the layout worked well for the 2 dogs that came with us. An evening meal out on the raised decking, with views over the valley was particularly memorable. I would be happy to recommend this location.
