“Just what we needed.”

The cottage is just what we needed for our short stay in North Wales. The cottage itself was immaculately clean and had all the amenities that we required. The room s were very comfortable and warm.
Three of us stayed at the cottage and there was ample room for us all to relax. One nice touch was coffee, tea and sugar being left for us. This may not seem like much but it was really appreciated after a long journey.
The kitchen was very well equipt and had all the utensil needed for making food.
I would not hesitate to recommend the cottage for those that are considering staying in the NOrth Wales area.

Liked best: Great location and lovely little property.
Liked least: Having to walk through first bedroom to access second bedroom. But this was a very minor inconvenience.

“Truly Gorgeous”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed with my husband and our daughter also our small dog, the cottage was lovely, homely and welcoming! The cottage was top spec and very clean and everything you need in a self catering Holiday!
The owners were very helpful and answered numerous emails about ideas of where to go on our stay, couldn't have asked more from them. There is some truly awesome views to be seen from your doorstep and a gorgeous beach at Aberdovey (recommendation from Geoff) thank you. I would love to come back and stay again and would recommend to my family and friends! Truly lovely comfortable cottage you have Elizabeth & Geoff,thank you for letting us stay

“Cottage in rural area”
Reviewed July 14, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The cottage is situated in a beautiful area with plenty of walks from the doorstep. There's a pub very close by - The Brigands Inn. We dined there the first evening. We were originally shown into a large room with another couple who refused to stay there so we did the same. Food was o.k.but pricey.
We ate out at "twenty one" in Maccyllneth.Excellent meal would certainly recommend for a special night out. We found the cottage to be lacking in a few essentials hence giving an average review.Needed more cutlery,tea towels and chopping boards needed replacing.Could have done with some casserole dishes.Found going into the utility room tiresome banged my head on a few occasions!! We ended up bringing the microwave into kitchen. We really enjoyed our holiday in this area the weather was fab.

A lovely, clean and easily accessible cottage. Very comfortable, and the log fire is beautiful. Owner was very friendly during communication and ensured everything was in place for our stay.

“Lovely cottage and great location”
Reviewed February 28, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed at Frondeg for 4 nights in February, this was a birthday mountain biking trip and the location was great for us. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage had everything we needed and even essentials like washing powder were included, loved the log fire If we come back to Wales (strong possibility) we would definitely book the cottage again

This cottage was just what we had been looking for. Small and cozy with a gorgeous wood burner. There's a pub a few steps away and wonderful scenery. It was perfect for the two of us. We loved it!
