Five adults and two dogs holidayed at Caedu on a Monday to Friday break. The accommodation was amazing and gardens stunning. We enjoyed relaxing in the spacious house, wandering round the beautiful gardens and even swimming in the river. We didn't need to venture out much as we had great weather for enjoying the grounds but the cottage is also well located for plenty of walks and tourist attractions. There were a lot of midges due to the good weather, but Tim has even provided a machine to help combat this issue! We had an amazing time, the dogs have slept for almost the entire two days that we have been back home after all their excitement at Caedu. We will most definitely be back.
Our second time as a large party to the cottage. The cottage has more than enough space for everyone. The kitchen is better equipped then my own at home. Spotlessly clean and well furnished. Garden and views that are great fun to explore or perfect to just to sit and admire. Children really appreciated the new swings and slide.
Very helpful owner after we had lost some property and vary prompt in communication.
Looking forward to visiting again... and again!
Have just come back from our second stay at Cae Du. We first went in January 2013. It was so nice to come back and see what's different whilst revisiting old memories. The house is huge, absolutely beautiful and extremely well kept. Garden is spectacular to look at, stunning river and our two dogs really loved playing in such a big space. It's only a short drive into Betws-y-Coed. Our whole family had a fantastic weekend and everyone has said they definitely want to come back. We were made to feel at home by both the owners and cleaners and were even left a few bottles of wine, milk and teabags etc all ready for us. Couldn't fault anything, could go on for days about how great it was. I would recommend this cottage to anyone. Thank you !
Stayed here for a weekend with family to celebrate my ruby wedding anniversary. The cottage was immaculate and the grounds and views amazing. Had a wonderful weekend.

What an amazing place! Just spent a long weekend here with family for my 30th birthday. Absolutely stunning house and grounds, everything we could ask for and more. Will definately be returning here, maybe in the summer months this time so we can fully appreciate the garden/grounds. Perfect for all the family, including dogs.
Wow wow wow!! What an amazing place! Can't say enough good things about this place- our party of 12 from ages 5 to 42 including teenagers and a dog all had a wonderful time! I echo everything in the previous reviews and more. The best thing really is the garden - it's enormous and entertained the 7kids and one dog in our party for literally hours! Rope swing, summer house, little bridges to climb, river pool to swim in, picnics by the summer house, acres of exploring to do plus hours of fun playing hide and seek! Which meant plenty of relaxing time for the grown ups! (Happy kids = happy holiday!).
All the rooms are fantastic, with very comfy beds, and a well equipped kitchen. Yes perhaps a tumble drier would be useful as a previous reviewer says but we dried our things easily enough in the utility bit using the dehumidifiers (washing dried over night).
Plenty of seating space in the lounge for our party of 12 and the little lounge provided a great extra little place for kids to play or an adult to grab 40winks in peace!
As other reviewers have said, we planned to do so much whilst staying in Wales but in actual fact we spent the majority of our time just relaxing at the "cottage" because it's so beautiful and the grounds are so extensive, and the kids and our dog loved it said much here! I think my dog thought he was in heaven!
Two places we would recommend tho are Newbrough Beach on Anglesey (busy on a sunny day but well worth it- lovely long stretches a sand and pebble), and also the Treetopadventure place about 10mins drive from the cottage. Great fun for all ages!
Communication with the owner, Tim, before the holiday was brilliant and he emailed me a wealth of info about trips out etc which was really useful. We also met the gardener on the last day who is a really friendly chap.
Don't bother looking anywhere else, just book here! You will not be disappointed :-)
Thanks so much to Tim and Polly for such a wonderful stay. We'll be back! X
