The location is idyllic and the cottage has an indefinably cosy feel to it; which makes it feel just like coming home. We have been here before and will certainly be back.

The attention to detail in preparation for our arrival was much appreciated. The cottage was warm, cosy and had almost everything needed to make our stay a comfortable and memorable one. With its idyllic location, views out of all the cottage windows were wonderful.

We really liked the location, enjoyed the walks around the cottage, the country side was breath taking, the locals were friendly and we enjoyed each evening in front of a lovely log fire.

The location is idyllic and the views were spectacular. The cottage is one of the best ones I have stayed in and I could quite easily live there. It's well equipped, well furnished and very homely. It was so relaxing and peaceful, I didn't want to come home.

The view and the location were so special - staring out the window, wandering up to the lake and the little chapel up the hill, watching the changing sky and the sea in the estuary, eating in the garden. The house is comfortable and just right - everything you need though nothing flashy. The area is less touristy and more rural than further north amongst the bigger hills, but still fantastic for walking and isolation. Had a perfect week - we were lucky with the weather too.

So many things we particularly like about the cottage; the Aga, the wood burner, the location, WiFi, the views, the beaches, the mountains and the leisure centre in Porthmadog. We both love the cottage, it's the second time we have been and it's always warm, welcoming and a wonderful relaxing holiday retreat.

The cottage is in a fantastic location with amazing views. Very beautiful area. It was nice, warm and comfortable. Great base for this area with some lovely walks close by.

Liked everything! The home comfort of the cottage coupled with it being off the beaten track and still had Wifi and mobile signal! I have already recommended it to a friend for November.

This was our second visit to this cottage this year. We love the peaceful location as it's ideal for walking (our dog loves it) yet it's so convenient for visiting lots of places being only about a mile from the main road.
May 2014
We found the cottage to be very comfortable and, as promised, the views from the front of the house and garden are amazing. It's well situated for walking and a good base for visiting places of interest. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have booked to go back later this year.

Fantastic place, amazing views, lovely garden. Have already recommended to friends and family and we will return again as soon as we can.

The cottage is a haven! It is warm, tranquil, comfortable, peaceful with all the facilities a guest could expect from a holiday cottage in the Snowdonia countryside.The final road to get there is narrow steep with twists and turns but plenty of passing opportunities. The area is outstanding with views over the estuary, a lake within a few hundred yards behind the house and endless walking opportunities.

The cottage has a lovely warm and welcoming feel, it is very comfortable, clean, and very well equipped, and the aga made easy work of roasts and casseroles. It also has really wonderful views. For us with our dog, there are some really good walks in the immediate area. In fact I would say it was perfect for us!
Mrs Bestic

The cottage was absolutely fantastic. The aga kept the place beautifully warm and there was a welcoming wood burner in the sitting room. The setting is quite spectacular with views over the estuary and wonderful walks on the doorstep.
Mrs Duncan

We had a lovely quiet relaxing break. The cottage is very homely, the views are breathtaking and beautiful walks, with the dog, in the woodlands all around the cottage. We loved trying out the AGA (great to slow roast local lamb. Fabulous break with fantastic scenery. Thanks!

Beautiful views, fire place, location and peacefulness.

Wonderful, peaceful location, beautiful view.

This could easily be advertised as a writers' retreat. It is Wi-Fi connected and has an expansive library of books (some of the best stocked shelves I've ever seen.) It is utterly tranquil with lovely local walks and a view over the estuary to die for.
August 2013
Set in a beautiful location! If you don't mind the narrow access lane and the steep hill this ticks all the boxes. The stunning view is something to savour!

Facilities at the house were very good - I even learnt to cook on an Agar thanks to the appropriate instructions left by the owner. The staff were helpful and efficient with my short notice booking.

This cottage is great if you enjoy the fresh air and walking. My partner and I and our dog loved the way we could start our walks from the front door of the cottage. This Easter it was bitterly cold in Snowdonia and the snow was still covering low lying hills as well as the peaks of the mountains. But that made it all the more beautiful.We were lucky in that although the weather was cold, it was dry. The cottage was well equipped, but our first evening there was quite a cold one. The wood for the wood stove was too damp to burn and the cottage would have benefited from someone airing the cottage,switching on the central heating prior to our arrival and putting a feather duster round to get rid of a few cobwebs. However, once we warmed the place up it was comfortable, the kids appreciated the wifi and the kitchen was kept warm by the Aga. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and loved the surrounding countryside. We found two or three nice pubs for food and drink, but one last observation. The local economy is in a bad way. Many of the pubs and restaurants are closing or a bit run down; public transport is virtually none existent, prices in the local shops are much higher than in the towns and despite it being Easter, there seemed to be very few people visiting the area.

Could do with more kitchenware to help with cooking/ food preparation. Bed a bit too hard.

We had a lovely time at the cottage, we loved learning how to use an aga ! Not too difficult to get right with the local welsh lamb from the local butcher. Perfect location to enjoy lazy nights in at the log burner, with a good book (loads to thumb through on the cottage bookcase) Cottage was really homely, beds were wonderfully clean and comfortable, great for lazy long lies waking up to views of sunshine over the bay. We took our dog, there are plenty of pretty walks in the woodlands all around the cottage.
