|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.|

|The whole holiday was perfect! The cottage was five star and our host were lovely.
Tips: Just enjoy the magnificent views and peace perfect peace! Take as much "basics" as you can pack as the nearest decent shop is 10 miles away.
