“Very comfortable cottage”
Reviewed December 28, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Very comfortable warm cottage, all basics thoughtfully provided, dog loved the underfloor heating! Sitting room a bit small, but bedrooms a good size, lovely walks from Llandrillo, amazing food at Tyddyn Llan next door. Can thoroughly recommend this place.

“Lovely cottage, dog friendly and added bonus of a hot tub!”
Reviewed October 1, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We stayed for a week in Shepherds cottage. The cottage was very clean and there was a lovely surprise of a dog blanket, bowl and ball for Rosie, our cocker spaniel. There was also a welcome hamper and a breakfast hamper in the fridge. The hot tub was a lovely addition and we used every night. We enjoyed walks round Llyn brenig, pisteall rheadr waterfall and we managed it all the way to the top of snowdon (tip - dont do the pyg track!). Th Rhug farmshop is also worth a visit. All in all a lovely stay and we hope to return.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed August 21, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rivercatcher, our cottage was beautiful and so well equipped, everything had been thought of to make our stay so relaxing. The hot tub was a real luxury treat. Being able to find such a lovely cottage where we could also bring our dog was great.

“Fantastic cottage in a beautiful location”
Reviewed November 15, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This is a superbly appointed cottage in a lovely location on the banks of the River Dee in Llandrillo, North Wales. We arrived to a welcome pack filled with quality local produce that set the tone for a memorable stay. The cottage is gorgeous, furnished to a very high standard, comfortable, warm and cosy with the log burning fire. The hot tub is a great addition, checked and maintained every day by Aled, the maintenance man who is an excellent source of local information. The entire site of 5 properties is finished to a very high standard with no expense spared. The nearby village has everything you need including a Michelin Star restaurant, which is excellent and a real treat. There are plenty of other attractions within a reasonable drive eg Snowdonia National Park, Barmouth, Portmeirion, Chirk Castle, Llandudno and Bodnant Gardens which is stunning. Overall, we had a wonderful long weekend here at Rivercatcher. We will definitely recommend you!

“Fantastic Place”
Reviewed July 17, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Quiet and peaceful location. The cottage was clean and tidy and very well equipped. The welcome hamper was a nice surprise with some excellent produce. Hot tub was brilliant. Bed was comfortable and good for those suffering from a bad back. Only negative point was that the heating was switched on as requested but the towel rails were not on long enough to dry the towels by the morning.
