“Excellently equipped cottage, ideal location.”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Took the family (2kids&2dogs) away, after staying in a cottage in Wales last year, we wanted to return and explore further. The cottage has truly everything you could possibly need for a lovely comfortable stay, The welcome hamper was fantastic (welsh cakes yum yum). The kids had their own space and the skylight was beautiful, Our room was as described with a very comfy bed. The garden is set over 3 levels, which my dogs did not like, but really by the end of the week they were so tired and just got on with it.
Found a superb dog friendly beach Carreg wen, stunning,
Tried bounce below and would highly recommend it, this is located within Llechwedd slate caverns.
Overall I would stay here with my family again, and since being home we have recommended it to others.

Liked best: how well eqiupped it was
Liked least: in our room the valance on the bed was dirty and full of dog hair, so took off and washed it.

Thank you very much for writing such a lovely review. I'm so glad you enjoyed yourselves and made the most of all the wonderful activities in the area. It is a great place for families with dogs, Cricceith has a great dog-walking beach too. I'm really thrilled you liked the cottage, I've tried to make it as homely and comfortable as I can, the kind of place I'd like to stay in myself. The valance you mentioned has been removed - there wasn't really any need for it - so no more risk of dog hairs! I'd love to welcome you all back another time.

“Delightful cottage in the heart of Snowdonia.”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Cosy, comfortable, clean - everything you could want and more from a holiday home.

Great location for exploring all areas of Snowdonia and beyond.

The service we received was excellent, prior to, during and after our stay with every little attention to detail.

This is a great holiday cottage that I would highly recommend.

Would go back for sure!

“Simply fantastic!”
Reviewed October 26, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My mother and I had a wonderful time staying here on our first visit to Gwynedd, especially as we were really lucky with the weather. Roxy the dog had a great time too! The cottage was exactly as specified, if not better. The welcome hamper was a fantastic addition. I would really recommend any visitor to the area to stay here without question!

Reviewed August 15, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

could not fault this cottage, well maintained and cleaned, facilities are brilliant everything you could wish for all we needed to bring was our clothes and food although a hamper was waiting for us on arrival with the 'basics' which included eggs, milk, bread,wine,chocolate plus lots more, the hamper in my opinion supplied a lot more than just the basic and was such a lovely touch, i have nothing bad to say about either the cottage or the owner both are lovely, will be returning for sure and have already recommended. the ratings for this review don't go high enough everything was amazing Great is too low.
