This really is the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. Beautifully situated in a peaceful and picturesque setting and close to Llandrillo village with a wonderful gastro-pub and restaurant. We were able to take walks from our doorstep through stunning mountain uplands - and with the benefit of returning to sink into our very own hot tub. The cottage was finished to the highest standard and was really well equipped. The nearby farm shop on the Rhug Estate was a great place to visit, not only for the range of local produce but also the opportunity to take the farm walk to see the Bison and Seeker deer.
On a couple of day we ventured further afield to summit Snowdon and visit Beddgelert (both about 50 minutes drive through the mountains).
It is hard to achieve hotel style and luxury in a self catering cottage but Shepherds Cottage does this - and some more. We received a warm welcome from the owners and they ensured everything was done to make this a fantastic and memorable holiday for us. We will be back.
We could not fault this holiday. The cottage has everything you need and more. It is ideally located. We would definitely return.
I’ve just returned from my stay at Rivercatcher with my 4 legged friend.
We stayed in Shepherd’s cottage. A beautiful cottage in which every detail has been thought out. The underfloor heating was a definite favourite for the dog!
We both enjoyed our welcome baskets, with his tennis ball picked up from the minute he walked through the door!
The location is lovely with easy access to all the places we had planned to visit.
Aled was on site each day and really helpful and knowledgeable of the local area.
We’ll be back, we still have Snowdon to conquer.
Wonderful and relaxing weekend away. The accommodation is immaculate and very high end, combined with a fantastic hot tub! Will defiantly be visiting again.
Very comfortable warm cottage, all basics thoughtfully provided, dog loved the underfloor heating! Sitting room a bit small, but bedrooms a good size, lovely walks from Llandrillo, amazing food at Tyddyn Llan next door. Can thoroughly recommend this place.
We stayed for a week in Shepherds cottage. The cottage was very clean and there was a lovely surprise of a dog blanket, bowl and ball for Rosie, our cocker spaniel. There was also a welcome hamper and a breakfast hamper in the fridge. The hot tub was a lovely addition and we used every night. We enjoyed walks round Llyn brenig, pisteall rheadr waterfall and we managed it all the way to the top of snowdon (tip - dont do the pyg track!). Th Rhug farmshop is also worth a visit. All in all a lovely stay and we hope to return.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rivercatcher, our cottage was beautiful and so well equipped, everything had been thought of to make our stay so relaxing. The hot tub was a real luxury treat. Being able to find such a lovely cottage where we could also bring our dog was great.
