    This is a beautiful cottage in a stunning location! So lucky to have found it on the website. The cottage is really cosy - lovely furniture and furnishings, and very well equipped. We had a lovely comfortable stay. We made the most of the weather and enjoyed some great walks. We also went to Blaenau Ffestiniog for the Titan Zipwire and Bounce Below as well as the White Water Rafting Centre near Bala.

    We had a wonderful week here in this wonderful cottage and beautiful area. Loved the cottage and all its space and beautiful surroundings – especially the birds outside and the peace and quiet. Thank you for all the thoughtful touches in the cottage. Every room is a delight and so well equipped. We mostly walked all week. It’s hard to describe the magic of this place, but it is very special and we so hope to return. Thank you very much, Elwyn, Iola and Dewi for creating this space and for all the thoughtfulness that’s gone into it
