“Comfortable, well equipped, pet friendly cottage”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in August 2018

Gwalia Cottage is a well equipped and comfortable pet friendly cottage. The property was easy to find and instructions from the owner were timely and very useful. We had a very enjoyable stay and would recommend and enjoy another stay in future too.

“Gorgeous little cottage in Snowdonia Park”
Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in July 2018

This beautiful little cottage was an absolute gem of a find. The location was great for all our booked activities (velocity, rafting, bounce below, Snowdon). It was so clean and comfortable and a lovely base to rest and recover. There was everything we needed in the cottage and it was close to shops for getting the essentials. We didn’t take our dogs on this break because we had so much booked in that wasn’t dog friendly but Susan was happy to take them - you would never know this was a dog friendly cottage - not a single hair in sight. Thanks so much for a beautiful homely home for our long weekend xxx

“Perfect bank holiday stay”
Reviewed 10 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

person found this review helpful

I recently stayed at Gwalia Cottage for the bank holiday weekend with my partner, his mother and our dog. The cottage was spotless, cake on arrival was fab after a long journey and the garden had the perfect spot for a glass of wine in the sunshine. Lots of space, great facilities and ideal location - especially if you plan to visit zip world!

“Clean and Cosy”
Reviewed 16 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

A perfect, pet friendly cottage. Clean and cosy and very well equipped. Need to be careful of direct access onto the busy road but this was not a problem. A great location central to many activities. Great value for money.
