“Cosy, welcoming & authentic”
Reviewed December 19, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

So....

I'm back at work now completley re-vitalised by this wonderful retreat. Booked last minute & at a great rate. Linda is a fantastic owner & has thought about what she doing here. Expertly appointed bedroom, cosy living arrangements & plentyful inventory. We have hectic lives in the City & this is an ideal place to forget about all of that. No phone signal (bonus), Lots of logs for the fire, great butchers down the road, beautiful river walks, hot tub utilised & very laid back...

No wonder Linda is already booked out for 40 out of 52 weeks next year.

Thank you ever so much for having us & we will remember our time at your place forever!

“Flawless!”
Reviewed November 12, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

The host, Linda has paid careful attention to detail to make this a lovely and comfortable place to stay. Everything was perfect; the bed was amazing, the woodburning stove was charming, the hot tub was glorious and the garden was beautiful. A great place to relax and spend time in the country with easy access to nice forest and beach walks. My boyfriend and I wish we could have stayed longer and we will definitely go back. I will be recommending this place to everyone!

“Lovely home from home, ideal location, great dog friendly holiday.”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

The cottage exceeded our expectations, there was everything we needed for a great break away.
Good location with easy access to the beach & lots of walks. Then ease the aches in the hot tub, followed by a wine infront of the log fire & into a cosy 4 poster bed!!
Dave our English Bull Terrier had a fab time, everything at the cottage is dog friendly & safe.
Linda is a lovely hostess who is there if you need anything & leaves lovely touches to add to your stay.
If you need a break from life this is the place for you with or without a dog.

“Excellent facilities, a charming and quaint cottage”
Reviewed November 4, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Linda is an excellent host, from the nice bottle of wine chilling in the fridge to our constantly warm hot tub we truly enjoyed an excellent stay. The bed is spacious and comfortable and the bathroom plenty big enough; also with a comfy sofa and snug TV room, a lovely conservatory which gets nice light in the morning and a sizable garden. Set in a beautiful part of the country with Snowdonia on its doorstep this is a very well priced let within walking distance of the beach and some lovely hills. For a couple or very small family, I couldn't recommend this enough.

“Idyllic Cosy Cottage”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We had the perfect relaxing break, taking our cocker spaniel Ruby with us too. The cottage is very cosy and we loved the welcome goodies and the chilled wine in the fridge and the chocolates placed on our pillows. Lovely surprises left by our host Linda. We had everything we needed in the cottage, books, DVDs and CDs and even tea light candles placed around the dining room in the lovely conservatory. The hot tub was amazing and especially during the evenings. We were even lucky enough to have three evenings of clear skies where we enjoyed looking up at the stars..amazing. The riverside walk next to the cottage was the perfect autumnal walk and our dog loved all the lovely smells in the woods. The walk from the cottage to the lovely soft sandy beach only took us twenty minutes and it is very dog friendly. We followed the advice of previous reviews recommending Linda's homemade Moroccan chicken which was superb served with couscous and garlic bread. We certainly hope to visit this idyllic cottage again. Thank you Linda.

So glad your break lived up to expectations I have to say dogs seem to adapt very quickly and become quite protective of "their" territory and because I only venture in to the garden to feed the birds it can be like running the gauntlet sometimes but always interesting! Linda :)

“One word - Amazing'”
Reviewed September 28, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We have just returned from the most amazing week at this cottage. Linda has thought of everything you could ever need and we loved the welcoming touches - fizz in the fridge, chocolates on the pillow, rose petals on the bed!

Linda was aware that it was our honeymoon and she really did go the extra mile to make it special, not that the cottage needed to be made any more amazing!

It was so cosy, comfortable and romantic - comfy reclining sofa, amazing hot tub under the stars, four poster bed with canopy. It wasn't just the cottage that was perfect - it's a walk away from a beach, a pub, and an Italian restaurant (what more could you need?) with lots more to explore in the local area. The precipice walk has amazing views for little exertion, and the beaches are truly beautiful, surrounded by mountains in every direction.

For the first time ever, I cannot wait to go back. The only problem with Llwynn ynn? You have to leave!

“Idyllic fairytale cottage”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Stunning cottage with fairytale like secret garden. This was a holiday and an experience which I will long remember. It has a beautiful setting along the river for peaceful walks which is just what we wanted for a quiet relaxing wknd in North Wales. The cottage is impressive,clean and has all those little home comforts such as books,dvd's games etc. The gift basket,wine and chocolates on arrival were an unexpected treat. We enjoyed a glass of wine whilst relaxing in the hot tub, which was one of the best bits of the weekend,especially appreciated following our hike up Snowdon.

It is always so rewarding to get reviews and so much more so when it would appear that the feelings your guests leave with are the ones you wanted them to have experienced, so thank you! Linda
