Cannot fault this place. Welcoming owners who were happy to speak to a group of welsh learners in cymraeg. Clean, comfortable cottage with well equipped kitchen, lovely log burning stove and easy access to Eryri and Gwynedd. Stunning views. Lovely location. It doesn't get much better.

Management response:
