The information provided to us by the owners was exceptional. The lengths the owners and caretakers had gone to to ensure we could access the cottage in the snow was very much appreciated as were the Christmas decorations and the champagne. Our dogs particularly loved going to the beach and then relaxing by the log burner, a very cosy cottage, great for a winter break!

Another fantastic New Year in another lovely cottage. Warm and cosy, especially with the log fire. We loved our walks to the hidden lake, and Black Rock Sands is stunning 'in the bleak mid winter!'. We will be back!
May 2012
Small but adequate cottage in a lovely setting and close to many interesting things to see and do in Mid/North Wales. We travelled as 2 couples + my brothers dog (Jeff) and the living space was more than ok. Clean, tidy and functional. My only negatives would be that the thermostat took 1 hour to locate (behind the curtain next to the sink FYI) and the tin opener was rubbish, also there is only 1 parking space close to the cottage which made it slightly awkward but not a major problem.. All in all, can't complain and we had a great time tackling Snowdon, going to Blackrock Sands, Harlech Castle and Portmerion (All were a car journey away so don't bank on parking up and leaving the car during your stay) Highly recommended.
October 2011
This cottage was lovely. We really got very attached to this little place during our stay. It had everything we required for our week and it was very clean. If we had to make one very small complaint it would be that the bed in the main bedroom was very soft for us. But overall a lovely little cottage.
September 2011
