I booked this cottage as a present for my partners birthday and I had done a lot of research into the surrounding area.
We had a lovely weekend at the cottage. The cottage is really well presented and the owners have thought of everything you might need ie there is foil, Tupperware, oil, salt and pepper etc so no need to worry about these. The little extra touches were also lovely.
The cottage is an ideal size for a romantic weekend away for two or if you had a child. The decor is perfect and there is lots of character so you won't be disappointed. Even in mid December we were lucky with the weather and one of the best things about this area is that there are so many walks and beauty spots right on the doorway. A short walk and you're up high and the views are fantastic. I would recommend a walk to Cwmorthin lake to the old deserted settlement, it is very scenic and you can walk up the mountains from there.
It really is a great area and very good value for money for a break. It's a nice quiet area, there are no pubs or shops really close, you need to walk or drive to Blaenau, there is a pub within walking distance but we didn't go there so can't comment. We did go to the Lakeside cafe who opening in the evening for a Christmas menu and it was really lovely and good value too. This is a 2 min walk away so very handy. If you want a quiet walking break in a beautiful location, you can't go wrong!
Marvellous cottage that was home from home.
Clean and tidy and made to feel very welcome.
