Booking process easy; very friendly owners who were extremely helpful.
Unfortunately we have to disagree with previous reviews for this property. Cut short our 3 night stay for a couple of reasons:
Firstly, we found the cottage to be extremely cold, even for May, and the central heating could not be altered to improve the situation. Consequently, the upstairs of the property was extremely cold and our children found the night times unpleasant as a result. While contacting the owners might have been a possible solution, complete absence of mobile phone reception made it difficult to do so.
Secondly, the beds were incredibly uncomfortable with mattresses that were badly sprung and lumpy. Our eldest endured a migraine on our first morning with lack of sleep and, two days later, my back is still suffering. I appreciate previous reviewers have commented on the comfort of the beds, but we would disagree strongly.
These were our main two issues with the cottage, though were unimpressed by the level of cleanliness overall. That said, the cottage is well-equipped (every appliance you could possibly need is provided) and the views are stunning. Wireless broadband is a bonus many similar properties don't offer, though streaming TV was intermittent, presumably due to network speed.

I would highly recommend this cottage. We have just returned from our easter break with our two children and dog. I can honestly say it is the perfect holiday cottage. It's perfectly located in Llangollen with lots of beautiful walks and outstanding scenery. The cottage is so homely the log fire is beautiful. Excellent facilities!!! It's the perfect retreat. (My kids preferred it more than haven and that's saying something!!!) We cannot wait to go back. Great correspondence from the owner too. Bloom cottage is a hidden gem!!!
