“Perfect weekend”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in July 2018

Booked this accommodation from trip advisor reviews. Thankfully the majority of reviews are what we found. Lovely little cottage with plenty of character and space for 8 adults. The location and surroundings of the cottage were idyllic. The communication from Nicky was quick and informative.
On the outskirts, 0.3ml of a friendly village with good pub and hotel ..with welcoming regulars and owners as were the staff in the local Spar. All this just made for a perfect weekend !

“Great base for tackling Snowdon!”
Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in June 2018

Great little cottage with good location as a base for heading off to climb Snowdon. Situated just outside a nice quiet village with good local amenities. Nice garden and conservatory to chill out after a long day of walking and climbing. Little bit dated in some places but overall pretty good and the 6 of us enjoyed our stay!

Thank you for your review. The house is 3oo years old so I think it is entitled to be a bit dated!

“The most beautiful, private location I have ever been to.”
Reviewed August 3, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Pont Arenig is in a brilliant location for climbing Snowden and has lots of stunning walks nearby. The pub in Dolwyddelan is friendly and brilliant value with a lovely little garden and the shop always seems to be open and is very well-stocked. Dog friendly accommodation with everything you could possibly need including a brilliant cleaner who was an absolute diamond. Highly recommended.
