|Good location for visiting the many attractions in the area. Use an ordnance survey map and get on to the narrow mountain roads in this wonderful area, the views are stunning and there are many Roman and other historic sites to visit.|

|Everything we needed was there.
Tips: Visit and try to see the Mach Loop, Torrent Walk is a must and take a steam train ride through the countryside. Waterfalls at Dolgoch stunning after heavy rain.

|Could not fault, the cottage was very homely, everything we needed was supplied and the bonus of having a washing machine and dryer was great. The owners were very helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them to do. Would think of stopping there again in the future.|
