“A relaxing,cosy break”
Reviewed May 17, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

The cottage was one of the best equipped we have ever stayed in and we all enjoyed dipping into the items in the welcome hamper through our stay. The beds were really comfortable, although fitted bottom sheets would have been an improvement, and we were cosy and warm whatever the weather (and we had pretty much everything from fog and rain to blazing sunshine).

There was so much to do in the area, something for everyone. As well as Bounce Below and the zip wires, the quarry tour in an open lorry was really interesting as was the slate mine tour. If you do one early bird booking you get a great discount on a second activity on the same day, so well worth getting up early! We got to the beach one day and into the mountains another, so a huge range of things through the week.

Thank you so much for writing such a lovely review. I am delighted that you had such a good time and managed to pack in lots of activities. Thank you for the suggestion about the fitted bottom sheets, I hire my linen from the cottage cleaning service provider and I'll pass your thoughts on to them.

“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed April 1, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Fantastic little cottage perfectly situated to explore the area. The cottage itself is clean and tidy, the kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom is modern. It's a short walk into the centre where there is a delicious fish and chip shop. It's also very close to zip world which is well worth a visit. We had a great stay and would recommend this place.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed February 18, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

What a wonderful few days in this beautiful cottage. Maryann thought of everything, we thoroughly enjoyed our hamper of goodies. It was a perfect place to cosy up in after a long day of walking in Snowdonia during winter! Thank you for a lovely visit

“Great location and lovely cottage”
Reviewed October 22, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Very well maintained cottage with good size lounge and great kitchen with everything you could need. It is close to Zip world slate caverns which are amazing. Also it is at the end of the line for the Ffestiniog steam train and a good base to get to Snowden which we did. Owner very helpful and responsive.

“Fantastic stay!”
Reviewed October 22, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

This was our third stay here and it gets better each time - we love it here! Our two children (aged 7 and 2) adore their bedroom, filled with toys for them to enjoy. We arrived late in the evening but the cottage was warm and cosy with a wonderful welcome basket filled with biscuits, coffee, cake, wine and lots more. Mary Ann goes to such efforts to make us welcome each time we stay here. There is so much to do in this beautiful part of Wales - our son loves the steam trains and we even managed to play on the beach at nearby Criccieth despite it being October. We will be back!

Could not have been more pleased with the personal hospitality and attentiveness of Mary Ann. Everything was perfect from her ample welcome basket to restful caress of a most inviting bed.

I'm so glad you were comfortable in the cottage. The beautiful, inlaid bed is an Edwardian treasure and rather sumptuous. Please do come again.
