“'COSY PET FREINDLY RETREAT'”
Reviewed 14 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

we had a lovely xmas before xmas stay in early December. A lovely area for walking, the cottage is immaculate and the added welcome pack is lovely, next time we stay we would order our groceries in which you offer. The hot tub was brilliant as even though it was cold once in it was fine and relaxing. Thank you we have told friends about you and we hope to come back :-)

“Great stay and great people”
Reviewed 12 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Back from a weekend away here with the two dogs. Got caught up in heavy snow and the owners were great - said we could stay an extra night if we couldn't get out and were flexible about check out time.

Cottage was great. Sitting in the hot tub overlooking the river in the snow with a glass of fizz was just fab.

Great basket of goodies on arrival and a breakfast in the fridge.

Couple of great foodie restaurants close by too if you are in to that sort of thing.

Already talking about coming back (when the weather is better!)

Glad you had a lovely time despite the weather! It was beautifully picturesque with all the snow if a little impractical.

Looking forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind regards, Jen & Andy

“Just an amazing place to stay.”
Reviewed 30 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

The cottage was beautiful. It is such a romantic place to stay, my husband and I had the best time ever! This is our second visit to the property and will be booking our third visit very shortly.
Each room is cosy and decorated to a very high standard. the facilities are excellent, especially the private hot tub. The owners and the site manager are all really helpful and ensure that you enjoy your stay.

“Beautiful cottage in a lovely location.”
Reviewed 9 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We had an amazing stay whilst holidaying in Snowdonia for 5 days. This beautiful modern cottage had everything that we could have possibly wished for. It was clean and tidy when we arrived. The luxury welcome hamper included bread, red wine, welsh butter, welsh rapeseed oil and welsh shortbread biscuits. When we opened the fridge we were amazed to find bacon, sausages, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, black pudding, milk and fresh orange juice all ready for us to make a cooked breakfast the next morning. What a lovely surprise. The cottage also had some tea bags and filter coffee for the caffeteirra machine. Washing up liquid, hand wash and dishwasher tablets were also provided (it was lovely not having to do any washing up!). We used the hot tub every day which was lovely and relaxing to get into after a long day out (especially after climbing Mount Snowdon!). It was nice to have hot tub towels provided. We enjoyed the view from the kitchen window and loved walking down to the river from the cottage. The cottages are in quite a remote area so there is hardly any noise (very different to the town lifestyle we are used to which was nice). The nearest supermarket we could find was a Co-op in Bala.

Whilst we were there we climbed Mount Snowdon which was amazing and definitely recommend to anyone visiting this part of North Wales. We also visited Pistyll-Rhaedar waterfall, Barmouth Beach, Zip World Slate Caverns, Conwy Falls Waterfall and Coed Y Brenin have an amazing nature park where we did some walks and hired some mountain bikes. There are lots of lovely pubs/restaurants around the area. On our last day we also visited the Rhug Farm Shop Estate and had lunch there - some of the best food we've had eaten so definitely recommend a trip there (think it was only 20 mins down the road?).

Snowdonia is a beautiful part of the UK and we would love to return one day. Thanks again!
