The setting for the cottages was really idyllic with rolling hillsides and scattered copses all around. April is a lovely time to visit with young lambs bouncing all over the fields. Thomas and his wife Amanda were really friendly and welcoming. Thomas was very informative. Telling us everything from all the amenities in the Bothy to local walks and good pubs for food and drink. The wood fired hot tub was very romantic. Especially on a clear starry night with a couple of glasses of Proseco. We mentioned in passing that it was our joint birthdays and Thomas brought us some extra kindling and firewood along with some marshmallows for the fire pit. Very much appreciated
My partner and I booked The Bothy for a 2 night break to celebrate my birthday. The location of the cottage nestled in the North Wales valley's is breathtaking, exactly what we were looking for! The cottage itself is quaint and full of historic charm. Its own secluded outdoor area gives you the privacy and space to truly enjoy your surroundings and relax. The cottage interior has been beautifully decorated in a cottage chic style with a romantic touches. The lower level bathroom is gorgeous with freestanding tub, candles and fairy lights surround the room, perfect place to unwind and relax in the bubbles. Robes are also provided to make this even more of a spa experience. All essentials are provided by Thomas & Amanda such as cutlery, plates, utensils, towels etc. There are a couple of shops a close drive away to stock up on items for the mini fridge. With it being winter time, at night there was nothing better than cosy-ing up with a bottle of wine, ambient lighting and listening to the wind howling outside. We took full advantage of the wood fired hot tub and didn't want to get out, even in the middle of a small snow blizzard! We did the Zipworld experience at the Bethesda quarry (45min away) and stopped off to explore Chester on the way home (30min away). Thomas was extremely helpful and welcoming throughout our stay. Even bringing us some delicious homemade cake that his son had made earlier that day. These personal touches are what make a trip memorable. We didn't get the chance to meet his wife Amanda on this occasion but we will definitely be back in the future! This cottage is a hidden gem, we didn't want to leave!!!
Me & my girlfriend booked this beautiful place to celebrate our first anniversary. Thomas & Amanda could not have been more welcoming or have done anything more for us, they made our stay very memorable and pleasant.
The hot tub was amazing and the views while in it are spectacular. Many hours can pass while you are enjoying the views and a bottle of prosecco. The BBQ was really high quality and cooked some beautiful steaks. Thomas was very helpful setting up both the the bbq & hot tub for us and giving us some directions for local shops and walks. We will defiantly be visiting again, our first anniversary was made special and this was a perfect place to spend it.
Thank you to you both
Booked the bothy as a surprise birthday get away and wasn't disappointed. What a lovely place. Amazing views beautiful studio cottage to stay in. The hot tub was brilliant too having to heat it yourself was good fun and rewarding. Sitting in a hot tub under the stars on a winters night was the icing on the cake. Thomas and Amanda are very friendly and welcoming and give good advice on where to go. Would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for a romantic getaway. We will definitely be making a return trip.
We stayed in the Bothy In January 2017 for two nights. Accommodation is to a very high standard, with lots of personal touches; including, candles, fairy lights and comfy linen. It felt very homely. We were greeted on arrival by Thomas, who was very friendly and helpful showing us around and even baking us a fresh loaf of bread (very yummy!). Thomas was always on hand if needed, but gave us lots of space to enjoy a hassle-free break.
The hot tub was lovely and relaxing (even on a cold winters night).
The bothy is situated in a great central location, with easy driving access to many activities. It also has walks on your doorstep!
We would definitely recommend! Thank you for a lovely stay :)

My husband and I stayed here after our wedding for our mini-moon. We really enjoyed staying at the bothy, the accomadation, hosts and surroundings were charming. We loved using the wood fired hot tub and gazing at the stars. There is also plenty to do nearby, and the Thomas (the host) was really good with suggestions to suit our interests. We loved staying at The bothy so much we are already planning our anniversary visit!
