Such a lovely place and Gina and Gareth were great. Will definitely be returned in the future. Glyn & Sheila

We have just finished our stay for two nights. Originally booked as a honeymoon but, they were so accommodating in allowing us to take our son with us due to covid restrictions. Excellent customer service and very caring, friendly and helpful hosts! Incredibly clean environment with extra wipes and sanitiser around to make everyone feel at ease. Amazing food, very quiet and an all round amazing environment to be in. Beautiful rooms, beautiful house and a beautiful garden! Thank you so much. We hope to come back, just the two of us soon!

We stayed in Rose. A cosy double with a lovely private bathroom across the hall. Gina and Gareth have an eye for detail; every need was catered for and we feel they went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We left feeling like we had made friends and will absolutely stay there next time we are back in Snowdonia. Phil and Chelsea

Such a lovely b&b and that these current tough times the owners followed the government guidelines to the letter as felt so safe with the things they put in place. The owners were very friendly and went beyond to make all guests happy. Our room was lovely, cosy, cute with a lovely spacious separate bathroom. We had afternoon tea which was very tasty and light. Had a lovely dinner on our first night and would definitely recommend the creamy potato bake for main course that’s if they don’t change the menu as it was absolutely delicious as clearly the owners are good cooks. Breakfast was excellent as everything was hot, fresh and tasty. There garden was basically there own private forest as they had a river running though there garden and water falls. They clearly love what they do so definitely worth a stay here plus there’s plenty of places to walk.

We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived until our departure 2 days later. Very good home cooked food and service. Our hosts were very helpful, nothing was too much trouble and they had good knowledge of the local area. Highly recommended.
