“Beautiful family and dog-friendly cottage, lovely views, tranquil location”
Reviewed April 19, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Flyfisher's Cottage at Rivercatcher has a prime spot looking over a bend in the River Dee. This was ideal for the family fishing enthusiasts and gave the rest of us peace to enjoy the steamy hot-tub with a bottle (or two) of prosecco.
The cottage and grounds were immaculate; the welcome basket generous; attention to detail faultless.
Our doggy friend was well catered for, but we didn't let her off lead in the garden as sheep families sauntered right past the fence which she could have got under - it did keep her amused though!
A short walk into Llandrillo led us to the Berwyn Restaurant, where the welcome and the home cooking were hearty - not even the Welsh drizzle could dampen our spirits on the walk back!
The only problem was we didn't stay long enough! Three nights just wasn't enough to chill and see what the area truly has to offer. We will be back.....

“Amazing Wedding Venue”
Reviewed June 22, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My friend, who lives in Sydney wanted a traditional Welsh setting for her wedding and asked me to visit Rivercatcher in October. The minute I drove up the drive I knew it would be perfect!

We've just come back from the most amazing weekend there! Everything was perfect, clean, spacious and the Hot Tubs were fantastic!! Me and my partner can't wait to book a family holiday there this winter for a 2 night stay as it has the perfect setting. I can not recommend Rivercatcher enough!!

The Dudley Arms in the nearest town offers a great pub environment with a fantastic Sunday Roast too!

“Beautiful cottage in the most beautiful surroundings!”
Reviewed June 5, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed here for May bank holiday week and had one of the nicest holidays we've ever experienced. The cottage was just lovely, beautiful decor and it had everything we needed. We were very lucky with the weather (not a drop of rain) but I imagine it's just as nice in rain, wind and snow! Really, really lovely!

“Stylish, tasteful, cosy and dog friendly”
Reviewed May 4, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Fantastic location on the River Dee, we stayed at Flyfishers Cottage which had a wonderful position for the setting sun over the river. Hot tub under a starry night was a treat after an evening at the local pub the Dudley Arms in Llandrillo followed by a great walk at the nearby Pistyll Rhaedr falls and then an evening meal at the very smart Tyddyn Llan restaurant. Both evening venues were walking distance from Flyfishers cottage so ideal for not having to worry about cars or taxis.
All in all an excellent stay.

“Perfection”
Reviewed November 25, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed at flyfisher cottage as a surprise for my mums 60th birthday! We had a fantastic holiday here even though there was a hurricane it was still one of the best holidays we have had, my mum was so pleased! The cottages have everything you could wish for plus more, they are some of the best cottages we have stayed in. We made good use of the hot tub even in the rain it was so much fun and had cosy nights in front of a movie and the wood burner. Will definitley be returning. Aled was onsite everyday for anything we needed and he even showed us round two if the other cottages for when we come back! All in all an excellent place to stay.

Wow!! That is the word from our mouths when we arrived at Rivercatcher. We had booked Flyfishers for the week. I have never felt so relaxed & comfortable on holiday before. The attention to detail is superb!
A lovely small hamper of local produce was a super touch & very much enjoyed.
The bedding, towels & dressing gowns were soft, comfortable & smelt beautiful.
The hot tub was a delightful asset & we enjoyed our time relaxing in it.
Aled, is a real treasure. He was SO helpful, a mind of information & spent time talking to the children about fishing, the surroundings & gave me directions.
We are definitely going to rebook... In fact we didn't want to leave & come home.
We throughly enjoyed our time in North Wales & found everyone friendly, helpful & welcoming.
Jen, you have a real gem in Rivercatcher. Congratulations & a huge personal thank you for your help & cooperation with our booking. It was just what we needed. Hope to see you very soon xx
