Reviews

What an amazing place: great location, extremely tranquil and peaceful, just want we needed . The cottage is wonderful with everything you need for a fantastic & relaxing time. So much thought has gone into providing everything. We had loads of information from Nicola before we arrived, and lots of books in the cottage with interesting facts about the local area. We had a wonderful walk to Llyn Ruck – fantastic views! Bird watching from the kitchen is lovely, what a great sight when having breakfast. Thank you so much for creating this wonderful place. Three nights was not enough and we’ll book again for longer.Comments from visitors 29 Dec – 1 Jan 2018 - 1st January 2018
