“A refreshing country break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011 for a stay in November 2011

A lovely, clean and easily accessible cottage, set amongst other small cottages in the village of Mallwyd. Approx: 8 miles either way from 2 small welsh towns and short drives from great walks and sandy beaches on the North Wales coast.
Downstairs is open plan and upstairs bedroom is peaceful, bed clean and very comfortable. Tasteful decor. Nice and warm. (allthough the logs we bought from the garage/store around the corner were a little damp....buy one bag to try first).
We had a lovely relaxing holiday here, whatever the weather, North Wales is great.

“Wonderful Cottage for Bank Holiday Break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2011 for a stay in May 2011

Lovely property in beautiful surroundings, we couldnt have asked for a more wonderful week.
Cottage was well layed out and presented to a high standard. All the amenities we could possibly require for our self catering break were provided. Beautiful fireplace which would be very cosy on a winter break.
Scenic walks on the doorstep and plenty of activities on offer in the surrounding areas. We look forward to returning as soon as possible.

“Lovely weekend at a quaint, traditional, cosy cottage in Wales.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2011 for a stay in February 2011

We spent a very enjoyable weekend at Frondeg in February this year. Even though the weather was inclement we had a lovely time exploring the surrounding countryside, towns and villages. The cottage is delightful and though traditional it has all the mod cons we required for a weekend away.
We had a delicious meal in the pub just two minutes walk up the road and spent several hours walking on the beach at Aberdovey. All in all a very nice place to spend some time. I must add that as the weather was quite cold, we wern't but it was February, the owner, Mr. Bateman, drove out to us, a one and a half hour drive, to make sure we had enough fuel for the log/coal burner and dropped us an extra bag off just in case, where can you get service like that?
