A beautiful remote cottage with fantastic views. Everything excellent. Just expect the internet to be a little slow!

Mr Nick H,

Superb stay, far from stress & modern life. We enjoyed the house, sheeps, the river & surroundings a lot. Thank you!

Sebastien C,

Wonderful, idyllic, calming cottage. The conservatory totally made the holiday. And the warmth of the cottage was perfect, I have no idea how the conservatory stayed so warm but it was heaven.

Mrs Jenni M,

4 busy city people found tranquility and silence for a whole week. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your wonderful cottage. We all had a great time exploring, BBQing and relaxing in Northern Wales. Made it to the top of Snowdon as well... not a bad week at all

Edward C,

We loved everything about this property. I have regular breaks in this kind of accommodation, but by far this was the best.

Mrs Angela G,

What a superb place you have. Thank you for letting us stay. We couldn't have wanted for anything more!

Tracy B,

Had a wonderful time during New Years in this beautiful cottage. The views from the sun room are fabulous to gaze at, and the isolation has allowed us to have a very relaxed time. Being accompanied by the sheep has made out stay way more interesting! The cottage is well equipped and maintained, and we had all the facilities that we required provided for us. The owner was very friendly and welcoming! We thank you for letting us stay in this fascinating and cosy place, will definitely visit again soon!

Mr Alex P,

We had the most wonderful Christmas break! It was so peaceful, quiet and beautiful! The cottage is so cosy and welcoming. We absolutely loved every second here. We hope to come back again next year. Thank you for the wine and mince pies.

Mr Rangel K,
