“A fantastic cottage in an amazing location, we just loved it.”
Reviewed 15 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

It was the attention to detail that really made this cottage outstanding!

The location was easy to find with the helpful directions and map posted out to us on booking. We arrived to find tea, coffee, fresh milk and flowers. The whole cottage was absolutely immaculate and had a very warm, cared for feel to it. The village had a decent range of shops, all within walking distance. We liked that the Spar stocked a range of locally sourced foods and drinks as well as there being an excellent small butcher's and the best fish and chip shop that I can remember going to! I loved that the owners had made a little booklet up which gave the opening hours and their own reviews and recommendations. Really helpful! I loved that there were lots of places to go to on days out that didn't involve a long drive.

The Festiniog Railway runs right along the garden wall during the day time. Helpfully they are going really slowly approaching the station so you can hear them in time to dash out into the garden. My boys were beyond excited that the drivers and passengers waved and grinned on their way past. It really added something unique.

There was a super collection of local guide books, local walks and attractions as well as general books, dvds and cds. The kitchen diner was larger than I'd expected and really well equipped. Not only were there the obvious essentials but details like the tupperware sandwich boxes, large flask and various glasses, all lovely details.

The bedrooms were comfortable and everything had the feel of quality and 'cared for'-ness about it. The whole cottage was actually bigger than we expected from the photos.

We had a fantastic holiday even with Welsh weather, we just hope to be able to return in the winter to sit by the wood burning stove!
