We arrived on the coldest day of the year with our 18mth old to find the storage heating off. So it was stone cold and no hope of any heating until they had warmed up. Usually 24 hrs. When they did it was still freezing cold. Several hours into our stay a shooting party arrived in the neighbouring fields. They surrounded the cottage and proceeded to blow ducks out the air, we couldn't leave the cottage for shot falling from the sky! The most harrowing thing was the inhumane way the ducks were dispatched, not satisfied with blowing them out the sky the shooting party left them for a considerable time suffering still alive on the floor before collecting them and not wringing their necks but beating them in effectively with a stick. Myself and my partner both grew up on farms so we are not townies but this was unacceptable. We contacted the owner who's response was "WELL WHAT DO YOU EXPECT ITS THE COUNTRYSIDE". We left later that day after the lack of customer care and also informed the local Police. Overall very dissatisfied.
Just had a great week Christmas to NYE at Hendy cottage. Quirky with a really nice finish inside and really good beds! Just about close enough for us as we'd planned to walk Snowdon. Dylan's in Cricceith town along the coast also great for a seafood dinner with views over the beach and castle.
