The situation is absolutely beautiful, very relaxing. The property was wonderful for a whole family get together and catered for four generations. Although the owners home was nearby we didn't feel overlooked and we felt we could go to them with any problems or questions.

Fantastic accommodation and setting with beautiful views and walks. Friendly owners who were on hand if needed. Would definitely recommend - it was a great place to spend quality with my family.

Yet again the farmer made this holiday amazing. All of us children get to help on the farm with the sheep and baby lambs. The views from the hot tub were stunning. An astonishing 40th birthday weekend for my mum! Thanks Owen

The stunning view of the valley as we sat in the hot tub was unbeatable! I also liked that there were two sitting rooms for separate space, but one is large enough for the whole group to be together in one room.

The cottage is brilliant. Location, location, location - if you want a remote hideaway, this is perfect. The farmer next door is so accommodating, he really went the extra mile to make our stay perfect.
Mrs Davies

Had a beautiful outlook and was peaceful with friendly people. The hot tub was a bonus to relax in. We were a family of nine, there was a lot of room to move around and the children aged from 3 to 13 loved it. There was plenty to see and do in the surrounding area.

The tranquility, scenery and hospitality in fact everything was unrivaled. The cottage is very spacious, clean and had everything you could possible want during your stay there. The hot tub was a fabulous extra in its own lovely garden. We were sad to leave, a week just did not seem long enough. We will definitely be back.

The location was excellent, stunning views. The hot tub was a real bonus! The log burners were great to have and the kitchen was the hub of the home.
Mr Crees
April 2014
We had some concern that the photograph in the brochure made the barn look bigger than it was. This was not the case at all. Proximity of the owners was another concern but they were discrete and very helpful. Fantastic accommodation and a fantastic setting.
Mrs Tilley
April 2014
An amazing place to stay with stunning views. I took my 2 dogs and six children and the farmer let my children feed the lambs and herd the sheep! They were so friendly and helpful. !e all enjoyed the hot tub everyday and we didn't want to leave

The house was an excellent base to explore some beautiful sights of Wales. It was nice to come back to a comfortable, well equipped property. It really was home from home. The jacuzzi was a treat, especially after climbing Mount Snowdon, it was very much appreciated.
Miss Basham
August 2013
Amazing holiday in the sanctuary of very quiet part of Wales. The cottage was brilliant, plenty of space, even for 8 adults and two children. The owners were lovely, very helpful and kind. The hot tub, and views were the best part.

There wasn't anything we didn't like about our holiday. The hot tub was the icing on the cake. There was every need catered for and more. Tranquillity and beautiful views. A perfect setting for a perfect holiday.
Mr Henderson

The cottage was extremely well equipped and was perfect for our group weekend to celebrate a friend's birthday. Having the second sitting room and TV proved very useful.
July 2015
We visited this cottage with my parents, and what can I say - it was an amazing weekend. The owners of the property were next door and were so helpful. The cottage was spotless, beautiful the lists goes on!! We rebooked to visit again in September 2015 - perfect week - highly recommend

Love this place stayed last year for my 40th and this year for my sisters 40th. It's spotless, home form home and more, I want to move in. Love Emmrys and his wife, spend more time outside in the fields with The kids and the sheep than indoors. The views are stunning and the surrounding countryside is great for lovely walks. You don't need to leave the lodge. My parents and relatives have booked already for a week. We can't stay away !
Mr Longden
July 2016
A fantastic house in a breathtaking location. We would highly recommended this property.
November 2015
This is our second visit and this place is amazing. It is spotlessly clean and has everything to make your stay a fantastic one. The scenery is exactly like the pictures and this cottage is just so well equipped with everything that you would need. If you want to just chill out and relax then this is the place, however there are some beautiful walks and activities nearby. I would highly recommend a stay here and the owners are a delight. This is great for groups and there are 2 lounges, with one at either end so the kids can be in one and the adults in the other !! Will be visiting again.

We booked Y Sgubor as part of my wifes 40th Birthday celebrations. We were a party of 10 including 4 under 8 children. The location was excellent for a getaway from the hustle of life. What made it especially good was the interaction with the farmer who let the kids feed the sheep. We actually felt like part of the furniture when we left. Already booked for next year.
September 2013
This property was just perfect for us and our family. It is fitted out to a very high standard,spotlessly clean and well equipped. The location was beautiful, very remote and there are some lovely walks from the property. My son was able to go mountain biking nearby. It was also not too far from other places of interest. The owners are next door and very helpful and friendly.
December 2013
House was perfect, host was perfect and the surroundings were beautiful. Could not have asked for a better holiday. We will be visiting again in 2014
May 2014
We booked this as a base for a 40th birthday celebration, the photo's didn't do it justice. Spotlessly clean, absolutely everything in the kitchen available, very spacious. The hot tub is a major bonus. Although right next door to the owners and very accessible when required they just carried on their working life. Recommend activities white water rafting in Bala and cycling round Lake Vyrnwy. Already planning a return trip, highly recommend .

The was an amazing cottage with excellent facilities. The hot tub topped it off. Our best moments were after MTB cycling all day to come back, have a warm shower and then drink a cold beer in the hot tub while watching the ice form and stars twinkle.
April 2013
We stayed here last week, nine of us and a dog. It's well off the beaten track and the snowy hills were absolutely beautiful. We were all enthralled by the new born lambs in the fields and the adjacent barn. Mr Jones and his team were generous to a fault in allowing the younger members of the party to hold them. The house is very well furnished and equipped. Minor issues were quickly and effectively dealt with by Mrs Jones. We loved the space available and made full use of it, including the hot tub. The walk up into the hills from the farm is phenomenal and our spaniel was happy to be off his lead on such different territory. It wouldn't though suit a dog who might chase sheep. I'd go back there in a heartbeat.
March 2013
We all had such a fantastic time staying with Mr and Mrs Jones in their beautiful house. The extreme snow meant that we had to rely on them to help us get to and from the house and they were so willing to help at every turn, we couldn't have asked for better service! The house and hot tub were superb and we can't wait to come again in better conditions to see more of the beautiful countryside.
