“Luxury in the heart of the Berwyn Mountains”
Reviewed 25 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Just returned from our second visit to Gamekeeper's cottage. Wonderfully comfortable, cosy cottage, immaculately presented and maintained. This is a great base for walking the hills, with many walks on your doorstep. The scenery is gorgeous and the view from the hot tub spectacular. Very friendly and helpful staff . Would definitely recommend the Llangollen aqueduct cruise, Chester, Bodnant Gardens and the Precipice Walk at Dollgellau, not to mention the bronze age hill fort at Corwen and the Bala and Llangollen steam railways. This cottage is luxury in the heart of the glorious Berwyn Mountains. We are already planning a return trip.

“Simply amazing and comfortable cottage”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We were a group made up of 4 couples all travelling with children. The cottage was clean, comfortable, child friendly and simply amazing. The views from all rooms was breathtaking. We were provided with baby beds and high chairs all up to standard. The common laundry has modern machines which were very clean to use. We had a problem with the heating for which we complained in the morning. As we went back home in the evening we found heaters placed in every room of the cottage which made it all warm amd comfy. Would surely recommend these beautiful cottages!!

“Beautiful Cottage - Wonderful Location......”

First time at Rivercatcher, and would thoroughly recommend to anyone who wants to be in this area of Wales, staying in the most beautiful accommodation we could find.
The cottage is furnished to a very high standard and has everything you need and more.
The Hot-tub was the icing on the cake, sat looking at the lovely river just yards away.
Jen and all involved were a delight to deal with and we would look to stay at one of the few properties on the plot depending on group size - all look equally as lovely.
