    Originally built as an almshouse in the 19th century, this delightful, terraced, Grade II listed holiday property has been skilfully converted into a bright and welcoming cottage for three people. There is a warming multi-fuel burner in the living room, a well-fitted kitchen (no washing machine) with breakfast table, which is the hub of the cottage, two bedrooms and a shower room. Outside, you will find a table and chairs to relax with a morning coffee overlooking the shared lawned garden and the village of Ysbyty Ifan, which is largely owned by the National Trust.

    There is a pub and shop in the nearby village of Pentrefoelas, whilst the pretty alpinesque village of Betws-y-Coed, just 7 miles away, offers a wide selection of eateries. Betws-y-Coed is also home to Zip World Fforest, where adrenaline junkies will love the amazing Fforest Coaster which whisks you through the trees, a miniature railway, two historic churches where you may be lucky enough to catch a local male voice choir in concert, and more outdoor equipment shops than you can shake a stick at! You can take the moorland road over to Blaenau Ffestiniog too, visiting the largest zip wire in Europe, the incredible Bounce Below or take a leisurely trip on a narrow gauge steam train on the famous Ffestiniog Railway. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    We had a lovely 5 days at the cottage. Weather was good.The cottage is a gorgeous little gem but the owner really needs to invest in a new couch. They were impossible to sit on. I did read a few reviews that mentioned the setters but didn't think they would be as bad as they were. I have thrown better away. Anther thing I want to mention is the tv. It was impossible to get a signal.luckily we all had our I-pads with us. The rest of the cottage is beautiful.

    This is a great little place in a remarkably central to most things location. A minor glitch( cleaner not been) was quickly resolved. Internet OK but if you intend to work from here you might find the distance from the exchange means sending attachments can be a challenge and mobile phone signal is non existent on Three. This was a perfect location for my 86 yr old mum, the locals are lovely just wish the sofa was a bit more comfortable but it discouraged you from lounging around which was probably a good thing. Would book again happily and as I said can I have first refusal if you sell.

    This is a very well equipped cottage and is like staying in someones home rather than a simple basic holiday let. Nice touches included a supply of firewood, tea, coffee, long life milk, dishwasher tablets and other basics. Cottage was really clean. The cottage is one of 3 in a row and has been tastefully converted from old alms houses. We had great weather so no need to test the underfloor heating. Bear in mind that the village has no shop and the nearest small store is about 3 miles away or else 7 miles if you want to head into Betwys Coed. It's a great base for exploring Snowdonia. There is also good walking country around the cottage. We had a great time.

    Lovely village and an ideal bolthole. The sofa beds in the living room were a bit lacking in support but all else was fine.

    Loved staying in this cottage. The accommodation had an absolutely fabulous Christmas atmosphere by the right decoration. Very quiet place for a soundless sleep. Good choice for romantic people. Walks within the cottage reach so no need to drive every day for hikes. Definitely want to come again.

    This cottage is beautifully placed in a small quiet village. It’s very quaint and a great place to stay if you want peace and quiet and or for visiting local places of interest. Tv signal is poor but there is WiFi so you can catch up in favourite programmes if you wish. Just a couple of things that would make the stay better would be access to a small freezer as there is no way of freezing an ice block to keep sarnies etc cool and the sofas are a bit tired. Apart from those two very small issues it’s a great place to stay.

    There were many things to like about this property, but also a few things that need some attention. The underfloor heating made it lovely and warm, though it wasn't working in the small bedroom. The beds were of good quality, with nice soft furnishings in the rooms, including blankets. The living room, although cosy with its wood burner, suffered from a very uncomfortable larger sofa, the one which is a sofa bed. The cushions slumped towards the middle, meaning it was almost impossible to get comfortable on it. The kitchen was quite poorly equipped for a self - catering cottage, having neither a serving spoon nor a baking tray, for instance! Saucepans were limited to one mid - sized one and a steamer. The owners need to place themselves in the position of a family or couple living here for a few days, and provide accordingly. Luckily there was a dishwasher, but we found just one singular dishwasher tablet provided, and a request for more came to nought. The biggest problem however is the shower! There may be problems in North Wales with water pressure, who knows? But this electric shower is a pale imitation of what a shower should be, unfortunately. You might as well ask a small fairy to sit on your shoulder and squirt a pipette of water over you occasionally. And finally, cleanliness. On our arrival, the surfaces and sinks etc were clean and tidy, but sadly the floors were dusty and hairy, in all rooms. I had to sweep the place myself. Generally a nice place! Location is terrific, great views from the front windows.

    Stunning location beautiful cottage . Few things lacking on arrival no wood kindling etc. No towels so had to go out and buy them this is probably an oversight but it’s basic thing supplied in rental cottages. Bedrooms lovely and comfortable underfloor heating is great. Nice size kitchen just missing some essentials like oven gloves baking tray to cook food on tumbler style glasses. Oven had old foil in covered in bacon fat dishwasher full of last guest dishes maybe a problem with change over procedure. Great wood burner sofas are very worn and uncomfortable not fit for use. If these things were addressed it’s a wonderful place to stay and explore .

    Unfortunately, the negatives outweighed the positives for us at this property. While the property was in a lovely location and was cosy and warm, there were several issues. We had cause to contact the owners urgently on our arrival, as the property had not been serviced, however, it took over 24 hours to actually get a response from the contact details provided in case of emergency, only to then find the owner was abroad and so we had been telephoning abroad repeatedly trying to contact them, and after not being able to contact them on the day of arrival, we had to purchase items such as towels and toilet roll, so we could shower. We were only at the property for 4 nights, So after 25% of our time at the property were we only then able to get the problem resolved. While we appreciate that things can, and do go wrong unexpectedly, we feel that this extensive length of time to get hold of someone was unacceptable. Also, the property description states on road parking, however it does not specify that you have to park away from the property in the village itself, this is approximately a 4 minute walk, but there is no footpath except where you cross the bridge, and also involves quite an incline, making things quite difficult for a slightly infirm driver. Also the information in the property said there was a small freezer in the living room cupboard as no room in the kitchen. Having read this information, we bought frozen food from the next town but when we got back from shopping we were unable to locate any freezer at all in the property. Leaving us with defrosted frozen food. So all in all quite a negative experience for us and I feel that the information about the parking should be more clearly explained in the property information so people are aware prior to booking.

    This is a lovely cottage in a lovely area but with a little thought it could become a great cottage. The TV wouldn't work so we had to use our laptop. The double mattress needs replacing. The two settees are sagging and gave us back ache. Little things like a shower mat, a draining board and more coat hangers. A coffee table would also be useful to accommodate drinks whilst watching TV. Little things but they would make such a difference.

    Beautiful cottage, in a beautiful location in the middle of nowhere. If you want peace & quiet this is the place for you. There is a very small post office in the village but other than that everything is a drive away. This was exactly what we wanted & we had a wonderful family weekend, playing games ( cards & Wii sports which were in the cottage) & lots of walking. Being dog friendly was a complete winner for us. The cottage had everything we needed, the underfloor heating was lovely & we almost wished it had been colder so we could have lit the log burner! We would definitely return to this wonderful cottage.

    Fantastic little cottage with everything you need for a comfortable stay. It was spotlessly clean and the wood burning stove was a bonus as the evenings were chilly. The village itself is tiny and quiet. Beautiful surroundings. There are no local amenities for a few miles so come prepared. We’d definitely come here again!
