“Idyllic Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed June 28, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Picture-postcard cottage surrounded by trees, backing directly onto a long river / woodland walk and 5 mins walk from a lovely country pub on the river. Warm but unobtrusive hospitality in a beautiful part of Wales.

“EXCEPTIONAL LOCATION COTTAGE, GARDEN AND HOSPITALITY”
Reviewed June 26, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This was our 2nd visit to this beautiful cottage but this time we brought our two daughters and our dog Lola. Lola especially loved the garden but the girls actually said they would live there if they could as it was so cute! Linda, our host, was as warm and inviting as last time whilst still maintaining our privacy.
This time the weather was good and we had the most tremendous walks but we especially loved the river walk which is right at the end of the path.
We all loved the hot tub and we even had some visiting bats flying about. The evenings were cool so we had the pleasure of being able to light the log fire which warmed us up after getting out of the hot tub!
We will be visiting again and next time we will ask Linda to cook her famous Moroccan dish that other reviewers have mentioned. Many Thanks Linda and see you soon

Lovely to hear that the girls had such a great time the beauty of the extra accommodation is that they would have felt they had their own space but could join you whenever they needed to, thank you for your great comments! see you all soon :-) Linda

“Exceptional!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We couldn't get over how wonderful Linda's little cottage was. Not only was the location perfect for reaching the entire west coast with easy access to Barmouth, Harlech and beyond, the cottage itself is perfectly set up for a romantic break. Linda's hospitality was exceptional, with added touches on arrival and it felt more like being house sitters for a friend, than renting a place. We knew she was there to call on should we need something, but we felt very much like we had the place to ourselves which always makes it easier to settle in and relax. The garden is a hive of wildlife and we spent many happy hours in the conservatory watching the birds coming and going. There are great walks that start directly behind the cottage, and we were spoilt for choice for things to do. Everything was spotless, and the quality of furnishings was excellent, with 100% cotton on the bed and comfy reclining chairs in the lounge. We adored the place and can't wait to go back. Thank you Linda.

So pleased that my cottage exceeded your expectations, having tried many times to capture the essence of the place on my camera I know I never seem to do it justice, and when you get the weather as you did that really is the icing on the cake! Linda :-)

“Fantastic Place- highly recommended”
Reviewed April 18, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

My husband and I stayed here for a lovely relaxing stay here. The cottage was very homely and comfortable. We really enjoyed using the hot tub, especially after dark. The location is beautiful, with nice walks near by and plenty to see.
Linda was very helpful and left a nice welcome basket which included wine, chocolates and welsh cakes. I would highly recommend this cottage for a break away from the madness of normal life.
We hope to return in the future.

“Fantastic little cottage!”
Reviewed April 3, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We recently stayed here over Easter weekend and I would highly recommend it. The cottage itself is lovely with lots of space to chill out and relax. We were having a weekend away from our little one so the opportunity to relax was great. The hot tub is fantastic to star gaze in or relax during the day. Something we both thought was excellent was the fact the reclining sofa was very comfortable as often places don't have comfy furniture but this was lovely.

Linda, the owner, is lovely and provides you with lots of information of places to eat or go and see and encourages you to do your own thing, which is nice as we've stayed in places in the Lakes where they almost expect you to be out all day and you feel in the way in but this was certainly not the case here.

Overall a great place to go and have a lovely relaxing weekend, I'm sure we'll be back in the future!

Thank you! so pleased you had the break here that you wanted and did what you wanted to do, that is the beauty of the area just a short stroll and you are in the woods by the river, by the sea or just squirrel, bird, bat watching, star gazing in the garden or experiencing the magic of Snowdonia, plenty to do or nothing your holiday, your choice. Linda:)

“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed March 4, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Had a great week here in Feb with fine weather, the cottage is exactly as described and we were made to feel very welcome by Linda who was the perfect hostess.

Fantastic walks right from the door, miles of empty beaches close by or sit and relax in the conservatory and watch the birds feeding and not forgetting the hot tub every night!

Can't wait to go back
