We were part of a group of birdwatching friends and couldn't believe our eyes as we arrived at Tan Dinas. The house is beautiful, the gardens very neat with comfy seating to allow you to take in breathtaking views of the idyllic valley spread out below, and Eileen and John are so friendly and efficient that our stay was simply brilliant. The house is warm and very clean, the decor is tasteful, the little reading room area is a great resource and the lounge was great for our group to relax in after our suppers at the Pont y Pair Inn just down the road. The rooms seemed to be totally soundproof and the decor, shower room and bed in our Elm Family Room were super. We had a small fridge, with fresh milk in it every day, too. As for the breakfasts... we all tried most of the dishes on offer and everything was cooked to perfection - from porridge to a full Woodcutter's breakfast, from excellent fresh fruit salad to steaming fresh coffee and Earl Grey tea. We were all birdwatching over breakfast, from the light and uncluttered dining room, and saw grey squirrel, tits, woodpeckers, nuthatches and even a spotted flycatcher! We went to lots of top nature reserves and beautiful areas within easy striking distance, and enjoyed seeing dipper and goosander on the clear, rushing river down in Betws-y-Coed, just minutes from Tan Dinas. The icing on the cake (literally) was that we came home early on our only very wet afternoon to find a huge, scrumptious chocolate cake and 10 plates and serviettes waiting for us in the lounge. "Happy Birdwatching" inscribed on the top was the loveliest touch and cheered us all up instantly. We'd enjoyed John's cooking and met him briefly but he also came out on our last morning, with Eileen, to have a team photo in the sunshine and wish us Bon Voyage.
