Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Own transport good for walking not biking unless enthusiast. Plan trips in advance don’t visit seaside at weekends parking is a real problem. Snowdon railway expensive for a large party, bearing in mind the cottage has accommodation for 10. Photographers might find excellent opportunities. Aug 2012.
  2. Great little cottage, perfectly comfortable for 10 people, well equipped, fantastic views and completely tucked away in the middle of nowhere but still close enough to local ameinities. Nothing to advise other than bring your own bin liners and washing powder! And that the photographs on the website don’t do it justice! Feb 2012.
  3. A lovely cottage. Nice and quiet great location. Plenty of room and well equipped. Great for family holidays. Was a homely feel to the cottage and had a really enjoyable holiday. Sept 2011.

  10. Very clean property. Beautiful views. May 2010.
  11. It was an Ideal location for the activities i had planned for the week. It also benefitted with access to a local gym which went down very well with us all as it compensates for an indoor pool at a fraction of the price. April 2010.
  12. Very pretty, well furnished, however the night storage heaters we were told on arrival would not be working until the morning, though there were log fires in the downstairs rooms. However throughout our stay there was no hot water in the kitchen or the bathroom, only a hot electric shower. Nov 2009.
  13. Perfectly located lots of character. Nov 2009.
