    Absolutely loved this cottage. The area is beautiful and amenities are close by. A huge bonus having a sauna and a hot tub included! :)

    Stunning little cottage, a true gem! Cosy, relaxing, just what we needed. Hot tub and Sauna are fab . Lots of walks with our pup, which tired us all out! Will be returning.

    A very comfortable, warm and inviting cottage, well equipped with loads of cooking utensils and equipment. Great location for plenty of local walks and added bonus of the hot tub after a long days walking. Lovely welcome chocolates and fizz on arrival. Would definitely recommend and can’t wait to visit again.

    The cottage is lovely. Well equipped kitchen. I think the owners need to spend more time when cleaning it. whilst having breakfast I looked out the dinning room window to see cobwebs! that have been their longer than the week we stayed. My husband swept the floor before we left and collected a lot of dog hair. We do not have a dog

    Brilliant location to visit Wales and walk up Snowdon! Lovely sauna, hot tub and woodburner. Convenient Co-op in the village and good attractions all round. Everything you ever need in a holiday cottage.

    Facilities are excellent, full Sky Q package, nice fireplace, lovely hot tub and sauna and nice kitchen. Top notch and the real winning features of this cottage. We arrived to freshly painted outside walls but no warning so we were all covered in paint after walking in, including the dog who needed immediate cleaning. A pair of used underpants were left in the main bedroom and at this point we were so disgusted we would've left if we had somewhere else to go! There is a lot of bric-a-brac around which are dust collectors and need a serious clean (I'd just get rid). Hard to reach areas like light fittings are also filthy and let the place down. Offered for the owner to contact me to discuss however he hasn't, so that's why I'm leaving this review. I can't honestly recommend this cottage to friends and family because of the cleanliness, however if this was rectified the features would make it an excellent accommodation.

    This holiday was wonderful. The cottage was lovely well equipped and a real home from home. We were there during the bad snow. The cottage was warm and cosy. Sitting in the sauna and hot tub was an added bonus when it's -7 outside. Couldn't fault a thing. Would recommend to people wanting to relax and enjoy beautiful surroundings. In my opinion ignore the negative comments on here they are unfounded.

    Not very clean at all, too much clutter everywhere, bed so uncomfortable I slept on the very old leather sofa. Lots of noise from the road when sitting in the lounge. Summer house with hot tub leaves a lot to be desired. Struggled to get our 4x4 in and out of the parking space so parked on the road. Beautiful location and cottage was quaint but needs a good clear out and cleaning.

    Best long weekend away ever! Lovely cottage, so comfy and cute. The private hot tub and sauna was an added bonus. It snowed whilst we were there which made the location even more gorgeous. Hosts left a bottle of bubbly and chocolates, which was a nice touch. Making plans for our next visit, can’t wait!
