Very friendly hosts, the children played cricket every evening with the son of the house :-)! Beautiful place and surroundings, perhaps a bit out of the way for what we had planned to see, so we drove a lot. But we had wonderful weather which helped :-). I would definitely recommend a stay here. It was a very relaxing place, would love to come back again!!

Great location, enjoyed being remote yet on a working farm. Our daughter really enjoyed the sheep and cows. Cosy warm cottage with plenty of room for everyone. Enjoyed the wood burning stove too. Owner was very welcoming and helpful.

Unfortunately when we pulled up to the cottage the outside was dirty, quite a lot of bird mess on windows and outside bench. Entering the cottage it was clear no one had stayed there for a long time, lots of cobwebs in every room even over the kitchen utensils, I cleaned most of it myself. Lights in kitchen and main bathroom very dim. Dishwasher broke on second day and not repaired. As for the garden- it was a nice space but yet again furniture was covered in bird muck which was frustrating, if you have paying guests and your spec says garden furniture surely you would clean it??!!

The cottage and farm experience were wonderful for our children. Staying on a working farm was very educational. The 16th century mill cottage had a lot of character and felt very appropriate for a Christmas holiday. The nearby Lake Vyrnwy was exceptionally beautiful and the bird watching opportunities were second to none.

The cottage was very pleasant, very peaceful and tranquil. The valley was lovely and all our days out were through picturesque countryside and were interesting locations. Our hosts were very helpful, above and beyond the expected.

A very comfortable cottage surrounded by areas of spectacular scenery.

A very good remote location, but easy to get to surrounding places. This was what we were looking for. The quality of accommodation exceeded our expectations. Great value for money.

We spent a lot of money for a 5-day stay. However, upon entry we were hit by a musty smell that smelt like wet dog and it never went away. The bedrooms are fine (the bath and shower are very good) but the ground floor needs a good scrub and repainting. We had to wash everything that came out of the cupboards because of grease and food marks and I suspect the previous renters washed utensils without washing-up liquid. However, this could have been checked. There was also no real garden out the back, which wasn't an issue when we were there as it was so wet but this is a matter of principle. For the prices charged, in general this place needs tidying up as you can get spotless and beautiful cottages elsewhere for this price - e.g. in the Cotswolds, which is where we are now. We have just paid a cheaper price for a 7 day stay in a stunning cottage in Broadway, which is one of the most beautiful towns in the UK. Rhiwlas could be a good place to stay as the landscape/ scenery is stunning in the area.

Loved the whirlpool bath and the log fire. Great location, really relaxing, and a very welcoming and understanding owner.

We spent a week at Rhiwlas in late October as our nephew was getting married in Bala and had the reception at the nearby Lake Vyrnwy hotel. We took full advantage of the location to do some touring around. The mountain road to Bala from the North West corner of the lake is an absolutely spectacular run - just hope no-one comes to meet you! The cottage easily coped with the demands of six adults and three infants (only one mobile thank goodness).
