Reviews

The best holiday cottage we have ever been to
We enjoyed visiting Beddgelert, it is such a pretty villageFamily from Carmarthen - 7th August 2017
Wonderful stay - the owners were very hospitable and always at hand to help with any questions. They were also very generous and provided some lovely game for us! We highly recommend the property for both the size and value. Only thing to note is that you do need to drive down some tiny single lane roads to get to the property but other than that it was fantastic!Amy from London - 18th October 2016
Excellent, great location and most of all it was spotless.
Tips: Shop local and cook in. Lots of great local produce available in the Co-op.Group from Mullingar, Ireland - 12th October 2016
Bliss, peaceful and easy use to equipment.
Recommendations: The Alpine cafe in Betws y Coed, white water rafting at Bala and the organic farm shop; Rhug Estate.Workers from Hampshire - 25th June 2016
Wonderful stay in a stunning property! Very clean and spacious cottage with beautiful bedrooms. We stayed for a hen do and the location was perfect and enough space for 10 to spread out...also there was a waterfall opposite the cottage! Wow!! Zip world safari was EXCELLENT! Also little Orme had stunning views from the top and the drive around the larger Orme was lovely too!

You were amazing...your service was superb. Just a side note, we didn't realise you couldn't drink the tap water...so a little note to guests in advance wold be helpful. Thank you so much for your help with this booking, also to the owners for such warm hospitality and support for local knowledge.Sarah Hyde - 23rd May 2016
