Liked everything, we had a wonderful holiday.

Absolutely fantastic cottage, the owners have gone out of their way to make this a home from home including everything you could think of possibly wanting and everything that probably didn't even enter your head! The wealth of information on the surrounding area was superb, we visit Snowdonia a fair amount and even we learnt about new walks near Ffestiniog that we'd never come across before, we barely went anywhere else this time as we had too much fun exploring. Without a doubt we will be returning to this cottage, just superb!

The location was dramatic, with plenty of places to explore every day. The cottage was very comfortable and cosy to come back to at the end of each day.

You can walk out immediately from the cottage and access the mountains with stunning views of the Snowdonia range and down to the sea and can see all sides on a clear day. . The cottage had everything we needed and half the time I cooked from there. It was fitted out well and attractive to the eyes giving a homely feeling of comfortableness.. the owners had clearly thought thoroughly about every aspect and I found every question I had was answered

It was an excellent location for visiting Snowdonia with amenities nearby. We loved the village and especially the walk up to the old deserted quarry village, and the reservoir with cafe nearby. The cottage was thoughtfully furnished and perfect for a couple.

This is an excellent property which the website does not do justice to. This is a wonderful part of the world which this cottage is placed in a perfect spot to make the most of.

The quietness of the area, the walks. The cottage had everything you would need for a relaxing and worry free time. The attention to detail was second to none,it was by far the best cottage we have stayed in.

The owners have taken great care to provide an extremely comfortable and well planned cottage. In particular, the kitchen was a delight to cook in. I have learnt from experience to take a sharp knife, decent wooden spoons, tongs, cling-film, aluminium foil, kitchen towel, tea bags, herbs and spices etc etc, no need in this cottage they are all there for you! I cannot praise highly enough how thoughtful the owners have been.

The cottage was very welcoming. Everything was new and complete. They have gone to great lengths to make a home from home with stuff to make it a cosy. Great value for money!

An excellent cottage in a quiet little village. Speaking to the owner for key arrangements was pleasant as she was very friendly and easy to talk to. The cottage is very welcoming, with a card, cake, a pint of milk in the fridge and even some treats for the dog. It has a very homely feel to it and is brilliantly equipped with everything you'll need for a stay there. The parking was decent, off road parking is a must for me so that was ideal. Overall highly recommended.

The cottage was perfectly comfortable for two, well equipped and the welcome groceries a nice touch. The owners had left lots of local information and maps which encouraged us to take a walk from the cottage up the hill, to a deserted slate mining village, which was fascinating and a beautiful walk. Afterwards the cafe by the reservoir was a perfect place for brunch. There were shops and other facilities only a mile or so away and the cottage was in a perfect location for exploring the beautiful Snowdonia national park. We especially enjoyed Portmeirion, Snowdon, Conwy, the slate caverns and museum and the sandy beaches including Barmouth and Harlech

We have just had a wonderful holiday in a Charming 18th Century Miner's Cottage. The owners Angie and Rich had thought of everything and even left for us a lovely Bara Brith Cake and a bottle of wine with a card wishing us a nice holiday. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, milk even herbs and spices were supplied. It was very clean and the King size bed was very comfortable just what you needed after a climb up Snowdon!. The Cottage is very well Located and Tanygrisiau is very picturesque village with some wonderful walks to go on. All the Information for the walks and attractions in the surrounding area are all there for you to read in the cottage. You really don't want for anything. We were blessed with lovely weather and were able to do all we had planned to do. I have a feeling that we will be returning to this wonderful cottage as there is still so much to see and do!

This was my third stay in this cottage which is really comfortable and welcoming.

The cottage was comfy and cosy located in a quiet area although very central to the whole of Snowdonia and within easy reach of the coast. The cottage provided a welcome haven at the end of the day where we could cook a meal, relax and watch television whilst toasting our toes by the log fire. The scenery in the area is spectacular with many lakes and mountains, plenty to do and plenty to see.
