This cottage had everything we needed. The owners even catered for the dogs. It was in a great location with lots of walks. Would definitely visit again.
December 2013
This is a lovely little cottage right opposite the river. It has a coal/log burner (the owner leaves some coal and logs for you). Very comfortable and clean. Great location for exploring Snowdonia. Only 5 mins walk from a steam railway station. Cottage is well-equipped with tea bags, coffee, herbs & spices, washing up liquid, toilet roll, etc.

The Cottage was more than we expected, clean, spacious, and a lot of thought supplying tea-sugar-wine etc, and a starter of coal and fuel lighter's, a host of other thing's went into their rental which would please any person, the area is obviously remarkable with scenery etc, as is all of Wales with so much to do, we normally visit Wales in our tourer caravan, but this was a lovely change, and Grandchildren loved every minute of the holiday meeting everyone, but then Blaenau was my home town many years ago, and came back to visit family all around Wales, would recommend this family cottage to anyone, and they wouldn't be disappointed at all

The cottage was warm and cosy and the owners had thought about everything we could possibly need. The welcome package was a lovely start to the holiday and the fact they included treats for the dogs too! Would love to go back there again next year. The walks and the beaches we went to were brilliant.

The cottage was very homely and comfortable, great to come home to after a day walking or sightseeing. There is lots to do in the area and we also enjoyed relaxing in the cottage in front of the fire in the evenings. The wine and cake was a great welcome gift.

The bathroom had a selection of toiletries and the kitchen had condiments, spices, cleaning products etc. It was obvious the owners had tried to think of and provide all the little extras and this was greatly appreciated. All in all one of the nicest cottages we've stayed in.

Excellent cottage. We were very close to the Ffestiniog steam railway which we enjoyed. The transport system from Blaenau by rail and bus means that everybody can enjoy the fantastic scenery. A wonderful home from home, cosy, comfortable and extremely well equipped. We would recommend this cottage to anybody.

Nice cottage, had everything we needed including a drier! In a small village just outside Blaenaeu. Beautifully updated cottage that has a lovely woodburner in the downstairs room. Good area for sightseeing and walking. Lots of industrial heritage about i.e. slateworks. Quiet village but pubs etc about a mile away.
