    Very relaxed, like a home away from home. The mountains are bigger than they look. Free Welsh Cakes were a welcome surprise.

    A beautiful cottage in a very remote location. The lack of light pollution made the stars look stunning at night time when relaxing in the hot tub.
    If you're taking your dog there are plenty of restaurants/pubs you can take the dog to - Red Lion, Cross Foxes and Brigands Arms.

    Everything was perfect The cottage is in a beautiful valley with stunning views all around. We had such a relaxing week! The beds are comfy, the cottage warm and inviting. It was perfect for our dog with the secure back garden and perfect for our family. The beaches at Fairbourne, Barmouth, Tywyn are beautiful and at this time of year were deserted so perfect for our crazy dog.
