Foresty Cottage is idyllic. The accommodation is so comfortable and the situation is so peaceful. Loved waking up to the noise of the stream and total tranquility. Extremely well equipped. Loved the woodburner.

The directions for the property were spot on and the pictures alongside were a great help. The games cupboard was brilliant and we played something every day. The location of the cottage was amazing. We just loved everything about it!

A comfortable cottage in a very picturesque location. The cottage has all you need for a stay away from home, including the little things you don't always find.

The cottage is set in a beautiful and peaceful location with birdsong and the sound of the stream to wake up to in the morning. The cottage provided an idyllic base from which to explore the surrounding areas.

Very quiet and tranquil location, great all rounder no matter what time of year you wanted to holiday. Good spot for exploring a number of local attractions, walks or cycling whatever you wanted to do. Forestry Cottage is well appointed, everything is in very good condition, the garden would have been lovely to use had we of had the right weather!!

This Cottage is in a lovely quiet tranquil location, but only a few minutes from Bala, with stylish modern decor and furniture and a comfy feel. We felt that the kitchen was particularly well equipped with a really high standard of appliances etc. This made it a real pleasure to cook and eat in the Cottage. Lots of things about the Cottage felt really well thought out and there had clearly been a lot of attention to detail which helped make the stay comfortable and feel more like a home from home than a standard holiday rental. The Cottage certainly felt friendly and welcoming to come back to after a long day on the Eisteddfod Maes or exploring the area. Our very favourite part of staying here was opening the double glazed windows in the morning to listen to the sound of the stream outside and to the birdsong coming from the trees.
