Loved it, exactly what we wanted & expectations were exceeded on all points. If I could live there permanently, I would :)

You're doing a great job, thanks both!!

“Fantastic cottage and a great week”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A very warm welcome by the owners Brian and Rob, with an unexpected but very appreciated welcome basket with local Welsh food, and a nice bottle of wine and milk in the fridge. The cottage is really great, it is very cosy and it makes you feel like home, it is decorated so tastefully. Everything you need or even more than that is available. The garden is also great with a nice stream in it. The cottage is centrally located so you can easily explore the coastline and Snowdonia.
Thanks for a great week.

“Fantastic 10 days in the cottage”
Reviewed July 18, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We travelled by car long way from Prague to spend lovely 10 days in Snowdonia and then to visit our friends in London for couple of days.The long trip was definitely worth it. Cottage is just excellent and with 3 adults and 5 children we had plenty of space. Cottage is well maintained, tidy and fully equipped with everything you need. Brian & Rob are very friendly. They gave us all the privacy we needed and on the other hand they were just next door in case we had any questions. What was a fantastic gesture was the welcome basket full with local high quality produce (bread, butter, cake, tea etc.) and a bottle of great white wine and bottle of milk in the fridge to get us started. Location is excellent and just few miles from sea or from the heart of Snowdonia in case you enjoy hiking. Kids enjoyed nearby Trea-Top Adventure park. It's a pity that we live so far, otherwise we would just love to return next year for yet another wonderful vacation.

Many thanks!!!!

“Lovely cottage, beautiful garden”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Beautiful cottage, immaculately clean, cosy & comfortable.

We really enjoyed our short break at Abbey End, the little touches from the owners Brian & Rob makes this so special such as the wine & beer in our fridge, a lovely little welcome hamper & all other amenities for us to use such as soap powder, bubble bath & candles!

This place is really home from home with wifi & 50 inch tv!

Plus the beautiful gardens and location. We can't wait to return!

“Great value cottage with loads of space and great hosts”
Reviewed April 1, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Abbey End is a perfect cottage for exploring Snowdonia - we really really liked it. We were 5 adults staying over a long weekend, going hiking in Snowdonia.

The house itself was really interesting - loads of tucked away bedrooms, all fitted out in a very comfortable way. The living room and dining area is a great space - loads of room for the 5 of us to chill out and socialise. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking your own meals. Rob and Brian were very helpful hosts - never imposing on our stay, but willing to offer advice about the area if needed.

Overall, the cottage is fabulous value for the size. It sleeps 8 comfortably and there would be plenty of space for all of you in the living accommodation in the evenings. I would recommend this cottage to anyone going to Snowdon and looking for self catering.

After a warm welcome from our hosts Bryan and Rob we settled into Abbey End.The home while quaint and cosy is fitted with many mod cons i am still amazed with the heated mirror in the bathroom with built in clock.The home is set in a picturesque garden with stream and close to shops and towns.This was the perfect end to our holiday in the UK and will take home many fond memories.We will be back and recommend Abbey End to our friends.Thanks again guys.
