  • "Hi John. We had a great time at your cottage."

    And we can see how much thought through everything was, loved the decor. Siri, Alexa and Netflix were a big draw, we also enjoyed playing board games. Location was also perfect, away from the bustles of Blaenau but still stone throwaway distance for all needs, not to forget the stream running past :-) would highly recommend.

  • "A cosy, comfortable small getaway in a quiet location that's great for the coast and hills, some from the door."

    The slate trail and the old mines are interesting nearby so if you like a bit of social history this is perfect. Perfect for 2 max 4 at a pinch, with only a small area for sitting that would struggle above that. Very clean overall, logs left for a fire when you arrive, biscuits, tea, coffee etc. No complaints at all. Not a lot in the village so don't expect to wander down the road to the pub but this is a nice little cottage for a week exploring Snowdonia and its history

  • "We had a lovely weekend in the heart of Snowdonia."

    The cottage was especially lovely, John goes the extra mile to ensure the cottage has lovely touches for guests. The sceneries were extraordinary, we took a steam train from Porthmadog to Tan-y-Bwlch (Woodland Wonderer) - I would definitely recommend. We also took a trip to Criccieth Beach which our is dog friendly (our Border Collie loved it). All in all, a lovely weekend and I would recommend to others and definitely return. Thank you John :)

  • "Five adults stayed in this cottage and it was a bit of a squeeze."

    Location is good for visiting other areas but the little town in which we stayed is run down and no decent places to go.

  • "Cottage was lovely, well located for the coast and Snowdon etc."

    Only minor gripe would be the sound bar/TV/DVD were v temperamental which given the cottage is a long way from pubs or facilities and we had a family gave evenings limited options.

  • "Very nice little cottage , in a great location."

    Nice walks right outside and plenty to see in the area. Weather was terrible so we couldn’t do the snowdonia rail but it wasn’t too far if we wanted to.

  • "We had a lovely Christmas holiday in this cottage with our two young children."

    We loved the thoughtful touches like the Christmas lights and decorations that had been put up inside for our arrival. The cottage had everything that we needed and the owner was very helpful to ensure that we had a wonderful stay. The location is very pretty and the cottage is surrounded by mountains with plenty of beautiful walks straight from the front door. Highly recommended for outdoor adventurers who want to return to a little luxury after a day out in Snowdonia!

At the rear of the room you can find the amply-equipped kitchen, hosting all you could need to prepare a family-favourite dish including an electric double oven and halogen hob, microwave, fridge, and even the convenience of a washer/dryer!

Pull out the handy table tucked away in the room, or take a stroll into the town of Blaenau to find a whole host of tempting eateries catering to all tastes.
