“Peaceful retreat”
Reviewed 29 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Beautiful quiet location, excellent views, Lane upto cottage could do with some potholes filling in and verges cut back but managed no problem. Would have loved a bath as plenty of room and a working fireplace would be dreamy, really enjoyed our stay dispite the weather.

Hi;
Thank you for you review. Sorry about the lane, we do work on the road but it is an ongoing project our car does the trip five time a day, so we know it is safe for cars. On the plus side we have a log fire being fitted the end of this month May 2017.

Hope to see you again.

“Excellent fully equipped cottage”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My wife and I wanted to get away for a few days with the dogs, within an hour of making the initial enquiry we had a quote back and had booked the cottage. We are both pleased we did, the cottage was nicely secluded on the hill side but close enough to the local towns not to be remote. The dogs were in thier element running around exploring the local area. Sam has thought of everything from entertainment, Sky TV, DVD player, stereo, reading books and puzzle books to cleaning kit so the cottage can be kept to the highest standards during the visit. We will be booking again soon.

“Lovely quiet,secluded cottage.”
Reviewed 24 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed at the cottage in June 2016.It was a lovely secluded,quiet cottage.Very clean and fresh.WIFI and sky TV.Lovely gift of a bottle of wine and a bottle of water left for us by the owner.The garden was lovely to sit in and was secure for our dog Lily.The only downside was the rough track road up to the cottage but if you took it slow it was fine and the location of the cottage more than made up for this.Would stay again.

Hi Janice;
Thank you for a lovely review. I am glad you and Lily had a quiet time at our cottage. Sorry about the lane, it is a bit bumpy but cars find it okay to drive up at a steady pace.

Hope you see you again soon.

“Loved the cottage”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A very nice & well equipped cottage, with fabulous views of the sea & surrounding hillside. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The only downside as others have mentioned was the bumpy access track, but that aside, a most enjoyable place to stay, very peaceful, but not too far from Barmouth, Harlech and wonderful dog friendly beaches. We even saw dolphins out in the bay at Harlech.

“Peaceful and remote home from home.”
Reviewed 1 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Wow, what a beautiful well presented cottage. From arriving we have been very comfortable and relaxed staying at Hendre Fechan Cottage. You have everything you need for a very pleasant stay. Once we had figured out the electric heaters we have been very warm and cosy whilst in. Samantha is just the right sort of host, she introduced herself and checked everything was ok for us and has left us in peace but knowing where to go if we had a problem. One slight thing would have made sheer perfection and something easily remedied, a hook on the bathroom and bedroom doors for your dressing gown etc is the only thing missing but so trivial as not to be worth worrying about. The views from the cottage are amazing and there is no light pollution so fantastic sky on a clear night. Don't be put off by anyone mentioning the lane is bad to get down. It is a single track unmade road but in very good condition and really not a bother. If you are looking for total relaxation, walks on your doorstep and peace and tranquility in a well kept, clean cottage the search stops here. You have found what you are looking for.

“Another Excellent Holiday”
Reviewed 23 November 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Returned for the third consecutive year with my wife and three dogs. As usual, an excellent time was had by all. Briliant dog walking area with miles of sandy beaches nearby. Sam and her family are excellent hosts, unobtrusive but always willing to help if needed. Cotttage very comfortable, the lane still bumpy but no problem if care is taken. Will be returning again next year.
