“Amazing, tranquil and perfect cottage.”
Reviewed December 4, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

We stayed here for the weekend, with our dog and had THE best time! Perfect cottage, with all the amenities you need.
Close to Porthmadog, Bedgelert and the beautiful black rock beach.
We are just counting down the days to book again, we are definitely returning.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed July 22, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We booked this cottage 'blind' with no recommendations but are so glad we did! A quaint cottage, well equipped and dog friendly. Our dog loved it too! Looking forward to returning again in September. Thanks again it was just what we needed, piece and quiet with easy access to places we chose to visit.

“Beautiful Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed April 25, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

When I called to arrange key collection I was advised of everything I needed to know, Very private cottage with beautiful views. The cottage was very well equipped, and very clean. The dog seemed to enjoy herself too :)

It is great to hear that you and your dog enjoyed your time at Cefn Coch Isaf and had everything you needed to hand. Having the privacy to take in those wonderful views sounds just perfect! We hope you return again soon.

“Lovely cottage retreat - very good but could be excellent!”

Points to make this property excellent for us are as follows.
1. Access to the property is not allowed until 4pm although guests are requested to leave on their day of departure by 10am. 6 hours turnaround for a cottage of this size seems excessive.
2. It is not clear that bath towels are not supplied and that is something we would have expected given the high quality and cleanliness of the bedlinen.
These a small points that could be easily addressed and would make this beautiful, very clean, well equipped cottage even better.

Instructions told us to turn up after 3pm we get a message not to turn up till after 4pm and they had still not finished cleaning house for next guest.The kitchen needs a cooker a 2 ring hob and microwave is not enough, Needs a mop and bucket in the wet room instead of having to use our towels to mop up. For winter months the heating is poor. We went out to buy hot water bottles and blankets.

“Idyllic Retreat”
Reviewed September 26, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This beautifully decorated 16th century cottage is set in the most tranquil setting in the Cwmystrallyn countryside. The cottage adjoins the owners property but with several feet of stone wall separating you the only noise you can hear is birdsong, and if you are very lucky an owl at night. The lounge is very spacious and incorporates dining table and chairs. The kitchen is well stocked with good quality equipment and everything you need to enjoy your break there. There is no oven but there are full simple instructions booklet for the convection/microwave there and we cooked a roast dinner successfully and used it frequently, so please don't let it put you off. The hob heats up really quickly and we have had a few cooked breakfasts during our stay! The bathroom was adequate and yes it is a wet room as such, but soon dries out, with a little ventilation. We sat outside where bistro table and chairs provided, and just enjoyed the lovely weather and a well earned drink, all in a totally private and peaceful garden. The upstairs again is very spacious, providing you with a comfortable bed and all the storage needed to enjoy your stay. Yes the stairs are steep but you do have solid supports to help you up the stairs. Throughout the property there are rustic beams which enhance your stay at this beautiful quaint cottage. So basically, if you are wanting to away from it all for a while, why not give it a go? We have come back feeling very refreshed. Thanks to the owners for giving so much detailed thought to the set up of this gem.

“Charming and Peaceful”
Reviewed August 8, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We arrived on sat 1st August and were very impressed with the cottage, the size of the rooms didn't disappoint with plenty of room for us and our puppy. although small, the kitchen was well equipped with plenty of good quality utensils pots pans etc however the down side was no oven there was a 2 ring hob and a convection microwave but having not used a microwave for years it was a struggle ,the shower room was of a good size ,the huge attic bedroom was accessed but a spiral staircase ,very quaint ! but with deep steps which on occasion were not easy to negotiate ,we had a lovely stay and enjoyed our trips out the only criticism was the cooker and the amount of over grown trees and bushes around the property which would benefit from being cut back ,if you are staying here we would recommend a visit to Black Rock Sands beach it was fab ,but hard to find, not very well sign posted ,but follow the signs for the golf club in town and its not far past that ,amazing for walking or just chilling
