“Superb pet-friendly cottage in a perfect location”
Reviewed 31 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We've just got back from a fantastic weeks holiday in the recently renovated West Wing. The cottage is in an elevated position in quiet tranquil surroundings. It is within easy access to walking and mountain biking trails from the doorstep. And within short driving routes to main activity hot spots such as surf snowdonia, mt. Snowdon, Welsh Highlands steam railway, Ffestiniog etc. The cottage is tastefully decorated, has a cosy interior and the owner was very welcoming. I look forward to returning back in the near future.

“Peaceful and perfect”
Reviewed 20 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

All we could hear were the birds and the bees. It was such a peaceful relaxing area. We visited Bettws y Coed , Capel Curig, and Snowdonia. Not a long trip away Llandudno. We visited South Stack on Anglesey , wonderful. Back to the retreat for evening meal. The owners Mandie and Paul are friendly and helpful. The cottage clean and roomy, lovely comfy beds. Loved the alpacas and geese. Definitely will stay again,

“beautiful spot,close to adventure,welcoming friendly hosts.”
Reviewed 7 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

excellent quiet spot with lots of space and fabulous views. Close to all that Snowdonia has to offer , whitewater rafting, zip wires ,bounce nets to name but a few ideal for our sons (13 & 11)
Lovely walks on the door step or travel further afield . The accommodation was spacious and clean with everything to hand and lots of outdoor space ,perfect for us.
Maddie ,our host, friendly , welcoming and happy to help in any way .A great place just 5 miles from Bets-y -coed.

“BREATHTAKING”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from Mandie and Pauls retreat but didn't want to leave. The views up to and around the accommodation are spectacular. Mandie and paul made us feel incredibly wellcome. The accomodation is clean,spacious and very homely with a conservatory looking out onto the mountains. We could see the mountains from our bed. We didn't even need to take towels, kitchen roll etc as Mandie has thought of everything.Even milk and coffee etc on arrival. Loads of information in cottage, from where to go ( plenty of leaflets ) ,local amenities to neccessities. The cottage is centrally based which meant we could visit many sites without having to travel for hours. The coasts are not far away, whether a land lover or coastal walker you have th ebest of both worlds. Amasing,stunning and a wonderful place to holiday. Thankyou Mandie and Paul, We will definately be coming back and bringing family and friends.

“When can we come back? A wonderful place to stay.”
Reviewed 30 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is an amazing holiday retreat with stunning views. The owners, who live nearby are on hand for anything you need. We found them to be very helpful and friendly without being intrusive. They have lots of animals, which are a delight to see if you take a little stroll around the grounds. The holiday rental is very clean and tidy and decorated in a cosy, homely fashion. The sea is just a 20 minute drive away and the countryside around the West Wing, is definitely worth a walk. The prices are very reasonable and this will definitely be our regular little get away from it all retreat. There are shops etc nearby in Betws-y-coed, in fact it has everything you may need for a perfect family or couples holiday. Extremely recommended.
