    We had a lovely time, just us and the sheep! Large accommodation, bigger than expected, plenty of room even for a family of 7. We visited the family farm which the kids loved! The owners are lovely and very accommodating. Overall a relaxing and enjoyable time.

    Lovely converted barn. We chose the wettest weekend in 2018. Still had a great time walking from the house into the hills. Great, thanks.

    We rented this cottage as old friends who were at college together, an annual reunion. It was the perfect location for this, we were able to walk locally and to explore the wider area by car. We went to th local pub (the Eagle) to eat one night and had a warm welcome and a hearty meal of local lamb. The weather was mixed but did not bother us, November after all! There were a few minor niggles: we struggled with lighting the ovens and grill: there was a lack of bedside lights downstairs : the beds were a bit on the hard side : an ovenglove and dish cloth would have been useful. Otherwise fine. we loved the wood burner yet the weather was so mild that we hardly needed it.

    Fantastic for our needs; wanted a centrally located place to explore from with 2 nine year olds and an eleven year old. Loads of activities a short car journey (less than an hour) away. Climbed Snowdon, fishing, paddling in river, Fforest park, kayaking on lake Bala to name but a few. The house was great, well equipped, comfortable, clean and plenty of room (mind your head on the beams if you are in the upstairs bedroom!). Owners very nice and we appreciated the small gifts on arrival. Bala has pretty much everything you need - pubs, curry house, co-op etc. Local pub is a short walk and apparently does good food, although we did not eat there. A keeper for me and I hope to return in the future on a similar type of holiday!

    Fabulous holiday cottage in an idyllic location. Lovely to wake up and see the green fields and hear the sheep. Kids loved running down to the river and playing table tennis. Spacious cottage and useful utility room for all the shoes and coats.

    The cottage was lovely and well equipped. When we arrived there was a welcoming sight of flowers ,wine ,chocolates and cake just what we needed after a long journey. Also milk , tea and coffee. The owner came to greet us and was very helpful. We enjoyed our stay and found the location good for the places we visited. Thank you.

    What an amazing cottage right in the middle of rolling welsh countryside .. just stunning. The cottage had everything we needed lots of room for us all and as the weather was great we made good use of the barbie & outdoor table tennis table. Great local pub within walking distance, so much to do near by. Definitely recommend thxs for a wonderful stay 😁
