We had a wonderful 4 day stay with Paddy and Sue in their stunning cottage. They were extremely accommodating and made our little 9 month old daughter stay a pleasure. Great location to explore southern Snowdonia. Very relaxing and beautiful surroundings. Lots to do in the area but also a great place to come and relax and catch a break... More

We stayed with Paddy and Sue for four nights in late June. The weather was not too kind to us but the compensation was staying at The Old Coach House. The house is set well away from the road, so there is no traffic noise, just the sound of the birds and the occasional roar of a passing jet plane.... More
