“Perfect cottage for 2 couples, brilliant location, everything you could want.”
Reviewed February 27, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We came away for the half term holiday. The cottage was better than it looks in the photos, has lots of character. Brilliant location for spar (to get wood and basics) a stones throw from the pub. We went on walks from the cottage which were really nice and some more challenging walks like Snowden after about a 30 minutes drive.
This cottage is ideal for 2 couples, no arguing over rooms because they are both nice, en suites are identical too.
We really enjoyed using the wood burner, it was easy to get going and adds to the experience. There's loads of information in the cottage about days out.
If you want to go to Portmeirion, which is a nice day out and good if you want a gentle walk, make sure you print off the winter voucher before you leave for your holiday, then you can get in for £1 instead of £9.
I would happily come back here every year, it is amazing value for money.

“Lovely cottage in a beautiful location with friendly and helpful owners living next door.”
Reviewed September 19, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

Beautiful scenery even though it rained six out of the seven days of our stay. But it didn't stop us sightseeing. We found 'all' the welsh people very friendly.

“Excellent holiday accomodation for couples/family”
Reviewed August 31, 2011 for a stay in April 2011

There is not much I can add to the other reviews of Y Neuadd Lwyd. The cottage itself is lovely, clean and well-stocked. It is very well located for the bus and train, and a great base for exploring the area. The owners are friendly and helpful- but also give you the space and privacy to do your own thing. If you have a special occasion, Helen also makes lovely cakes- my son loved his chocolate birthday cake! Definitely a place I would recommend.

“Exceeded our expectations”

A fantastic cosy cottage. The owners live in the adjoining property and are there to help if needed, but respected our privacy. There are 2 equally sized double bedrooms which are tastefully decorated, each with it's own ensuite bathroom. There is a delightfull garden with a large decked aea. The website pictures do not do the cottage justice. There is an excellent village store within 2 minutes walking distance. The location is perfect as a touring base for North Wales.

“Wonderful cottage and a memorable stay”

We stayed at the cottage for a week and found it to be extremely cosy with its log burning stove and extremely comfortable beds. It also has great, modern facilities to provide a real home from home which means you don't have to bring the kitchen sink.
Our two children also loved the books provided as well as playing with the two cats that live next door.
The cottage is ideally placed to tour Snowdonia as well as reasonable driving distance to Lllandudno and Rhyl on the North Coast, with Anglesey, Porthmadg and Harlech also being within good driving distance.
We would definitely consider returning to the cottage and would loved to have stayed longer!

“Beautiful cottage set in the heart of Snowdonia”

We had a lovely stay in this beautiful cottage. Helen made us feel very welcome upon arrival.

The cottage is finished to a very high standard and includes lots of details that create a 'home from home' feeling. The fire was ready to go when we arrived which was much appreciated and there was plenty of kindle and fire wood to keep us going all week. The beds were very comfortable and we slept really well all week. Privacy is important for us and we loved the fact this cottage has fields behind and next to the property (full of sheep!)

This is the perfect base for us to explore North Wales. Would highly recommend, particularly for walkers or romantic getaway.
