“Georgeous cottage and location”
Reviewed February 24, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

This was our second stay at Ty Llewelyn and it was every bit as lovely as we remembered. All the cottage's facilities are top notch and it is so comfortable and cosy we wished we could stay longer. The weather was wild but it didn't stop us getting out and about knowing we had a great place to return to at the end of the day. The criticisms in a recent review are unfair - the bed is wonderfully comfortable and our ancient Renault Clio made it up the hill with only a bit of effort (the cottage is on the side of a mountain after all!) This is a top of the range holiday cottage for a very reasonable price and we would heartily recommend it, and will definitely be returning.

“3rd time in twelve months, says it all really!!!!!!!! Magical!!!”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

Third time here, perfect location as we love Hill walking and touring around, perfect hosts nothing is to much trouble. Perfect cottage, immaculately clean , the welcome tray with local cakes and milk etc is a great touch. A local paper is also left brilliant idea. The WIFI is excellent and free in with the very reasonable price. Never cold , heating was amazing underfloor cosy . Views outstanding and lots of hot water to soak my weary legs in after a days walking. We stayed the week before Xmas and the Xmas decorations where lovely. Anyone who doesn't rate this 5/5 has unrealistic expectations. Thank you Maz and Elwyn we are coming back again. more hills to conquer.

“Warm welcome”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

When we arrived at the cottage there was Welsh cake and a fruit loaf waiting for us. The cottage was real nice, very cosy and well equipped. There was also a welcome card for us. We will be back for sure. The nicest place we have stayed in so far.

“the cottage looked to have been converted with interest and care”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

The setting is stunning albeit a low suspension car may have difficulty in getting up to the cottages in poor weather. The cottage is a good standard. My two criticisms are that the mattress was a little too soft for me personally and the kitchen knives were not reliable for cutting and cooking.

Thank you for your review and useful feedback. I am sorry you found the mattress not to your personal liking, I will certainly keep an eye out for other comments about it and replace it if necessary. There is a knife sharpener in the top drawer in the kitchen which you could have used to sharpen the knives. We do also regularly keep them sharpened as part of our maintenance routine so I apologise if you found them to be not acceptable. The road up to the cottages is absolutely fine for any vehicle. In severe weather I think any car might have trouble getting anywhere on any road, so your criticism there may be a little unfair! Thank you once again for the review and I hope we may welcome you back in the future.

“Fantastic, an amazing getaway”

We had a lovely stay and we will definitely be going again, lovely holiday from the moment we arrived, with a fantastic welcoming tray and a beautifully laid out cottage with stunning views. We have recommended it to friends who are now looking to book. This homely and comfy cottage is delightful.

“Heaven on earth must be this cottage and its owners”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We stayed here for five days last winter and it was amazing. The hospitality from Maz and Elwyn is just second to none , we arrived in a blizzard and we were assisted to the best in our eyes self catering cottage we had ever stayed in and we have stayed in 100s. The cottage has some of the best views in the country and it is so warm, it has underfloor heating, I love it and want it in my own house. The kitchen is well equipped and lounge is so spacious and cosy with the log burner . We would often go out walking straight from the door, Moel Siabod is our fav and return earlier enough to sit and have a glass of wine looking out across the mountains of the Carneddau and the Ogwen valley. Truly stunning. The views in the morning when opening the blinds and curtains was breathtaking as we explained to Maz, she will understand me on this one.
We must mention the welcome on the blackboard in Welsh was a great touch and the welcome tray is a brilliant idea.
The towels and bedding are so top notch and the smellies in the bathroom are a great too and even helped my other half smell half decent for a change.
We have fond memories of this place and the very kind owners.
Keep up the good work and we will be back this winter too please.
Best Wishes
M&K xx

“Absolutely Fantastic”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

The most beautiful place I have ever stayed. Well Snowdonia is fab, and this place halfway up Moel Siabod with views down the Ogwen valley was absolutely stunning. Stayed in Feb so the fire was excellent, but the place was warm anyway great kitchen, living room and bedrooms. I was lucky the sun shone, and there was snow on the hills, but even if the weather hadn't been up to it I could happily have stayed in the cottage all weekend. Definitely going back as soon as the camping season is over.
