I was disappointed by the lack of management of this property. I booked a week in the summer. I was told by trip advisor that my holiday was confirmed, but then received an email from the owner saying there "had been a missunderstanding" and the week was doubled book.
I suggest you double check your booking before turning up!
We have just stayed at the cottage for the past week, we have enjoyed it! It is in a beautiful location and has everything you need, all you have to bring is food and drink!
It does have a very steep farmers track to get there which looks like only a defender could get down, but my low mini managed to get down there and didn't get stuck once!!! :) at first I was terrified to drive down there then after a day of doing it I didn't care! :)
The bison grill near the house did AMAZING food I really loved it there!
We had the bedroom on the top floor which had velux Windows which were so nice to look through in the day and night, also perfect for taking night time star photos :)
Thank you for the amazing stay! My only issue was I didn't realise how far away it was from everywhere we wanted to go, but the scenery was beautiful so that made up for it!!!!
We came here last weekend in April and the weather was so sunny and perfect for us! The house was lovely and modern with all the amenities you need, including lots of kitchen equipment which is brilliant. The downstairs bedrooms were perfect for the older parents and upstairs family room perfect for us and our little three year old. The owners gave us clear instructions on how to get there and it was very off the beaten track down dusty and rocky roads but it was worth it when we got there!! The views and hills around were stunning. The cottage had an indoor log burner and outdoor fire pit the kids had fun toasting marshmallows and collecting wood and we all enjoyed the laid back and beautiful surrounding. The only thing which would have been nice would have been some outdoors toys for older kids e.g larger slide or trampoline etc. Indoors there were toys for younger children which I thought was a nice touch and plastic plates, a booster seat for the table so it's clear the owners considered people with children. I would thoroughly recommend this beautiful gem of a cottage to families groups of friends etc. And the Bala steam railway is well worth a visit too! Oh and we went to a fabulous restaurant overlooking the river Dee called the Corn Mill the food was beautiful and prices not bad, and the scenery was stunning! Well worth a visit it was about 20-25 mins in the car.
This is a beautiful and peaceful place to stay. Very remote, and the last track to the barn is bumpy but fine with most cars and otherwise very peaceful. The only gripe we had was the oven was filthy and billowed with smoke when turned on. Great living space and very clean and tidy. Could have done with a few more logs though.
Had a fantastic weekend!
Loved the wood burner and the fact it was off the beaten track!
House was very warm and cosy, well placed for visits to Betws-Y-Coed and the zip wire experience in Ffestiniog!
Lovely walk at Llyn Gerionned!
Kids enjoyed the trains and the ice cream shops.
