“Hafan Haydn....wonderful holiday cottage”
Reviewed 12 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Our second time visiting this beautiful cottage and we love it even more than the first. The cottage is in a beautiful peaceful setting with lovely views from every window yet only 5 minutes drive to local amenities and a great base to explore North Wales. The cottage is so cosy and homely and furnished to a very high standard with everything you could need for a self catering holiday. The owners are so friendly and helpful and leave lovely homemade cakes and produce for you. My children loved looking out at the chickens and sheep and we were all sad to leave. By far the best holiday cottage we have stayed in and by far the most comfy beds! We can't wait to return.

“Eggcellent!!”
Reviewed 10 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We and our baby absolutely loved our holiday here. The hosts were lovely and really helpful. Collecting eggs from the chickens was a treat, and our son loved watching them and the sheep. The cottage was wonderful, the views were just astounding. The woodburner was good fun, and we found it easy to get to local things like a supermarket, curry takeaway, and even the local hospital! Great location for walks.

We certainly hope that you return to repeat the experience very soon.

“Wonderful retreat”
Reviewed 29 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

A friend and I visited this wonderful cottage for a three day escape. It was a wonderful stay. The location was beautiful, surrounded by fields yet not too far from the local village for anything you wanted or many other local places of interest. The owners had thought of everything you could possibly need and made sure you had it - from toothpaste to a supply of milk, eggs, wine and cake upon arrival. It felt as if they were looking after you while also giving you the space to enjoy yourself.

The cottage itself was beautiful - with a wonderful fire (which we really appreciated as the weather was terrible!) I honestly don't think I could recommend this place enough and would love to come back!

“Fantastic accomodation and relaxed stay”
Reviewed 17 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The cottage is tucked away in an idyllic location. On arrival we had milk, eggs, a bottle of wine and some shortbread and even a childrens magazine for our 4 year old daughter. The accomodation was fantastic and had the high chair and cot for our little one all set up. Our daughters loved watching the lambs and sheep in the field opposite and the location is good for getting round North Wales.

“Just loved this little diamond.”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in June 2014

My partner and I went with my 1 year old baby in the summer for my birthday. We loved it. The hens tapping in the door and the sheep roaming about was great. The hosts put up a baby gate and travel cot for our child. There was a birthday cake and bottle of wine waiting for me on arrival. The place was spotless and tastefully decorated and the bathroom is beautiful. The views are stunning and it's so peaceful! We are hoping to go back very soon. Loved it.

“Perfectly cute, wonderfully presented, stunning views.”

My wife and I, along with our 5 month old, stayed at the cottage for 1 week. It has been lovingly restored by the owners who are extremely friendly and made perfect hosts.

Lots of thought has been put into this, with great attention to detail. On arrival, goodies were provided, so after a long drive we could make cups of tea with cake, taste their own free range eggs from the chickens and sipped our complimentary bottle of wine. Small things like soaps included, sugar at the ready, dishwasher tablets stocked etc meant that we didn't have to go to the shops for anything other than our own main meal ingredients. That is a really welcome thing when you arrive after a long drive, and those small things take effort to continuously stock up and provide that added value to guests. That effort, is a reflection on the owners, who have provided a peaceful and private space to relax in.

A previous review mentions a short walk to get to the cottage from the parking. This did not put us off, and indeed on arrival we discovered that the 'short walk', is just 20 meters from where the car is parked on the drive to where the door to the cottage is. It was not a reason not to visit, and we had no trouble with our 6 month old, even when there was thunder and lightning!

The bedrooms are in a converted roof space. Space is tight, I am 6'1", but frankly, I loved the atmosphere created by being snuggly tucked up in a cosy space. The owners made space for us to put a cot (provided) in the second bedroom, and we had no issues in enjoying the cosiness of the bedroom spaces. It is standing height in the middle of the room, and is only intrusive in trying to walk down the side of the bed - not an issue for us, and adds character and enjoyment to a week away.

All in all, I would fully recommend this cottage to all couples, couples & baby and couples with school age children etc - You may think twice with crawlers/toddlers due to the open plan spacious living downstairs, but it wouldn't stop us. The downstairs is perfectly appointed, and we greatly enjoyed eating breakfast on the completely private patio in the morning sun overlooking the roaming sheep on the expansive views. See our afternoon tea photo attached.

An exciting setting with chickens and sheep, and fetch your own eggs fun!
