Yr Hen Festri was excellent. The decor was outstanding and the wood burner was a wonderful addition. The owner was very helpful would go again.

The cottage was very nice, with a huge kitchen diner and views to Anglesey, with mountains on the other side. The cottage was spotless and the hot tub was excellent fun. Would recommend.

The owner was very friendly. The cottage was luxurious, warm and cosy and was in a great location which made our Christmas holiday perfect. The views of the mountains with snow on were beautiful and having the hot tub and wood burner was the icing on the cake. There was also a great restaurant just in walking distance, the customer service and food was excellent.

We particularly liked that it was a converted vestry, the amazing wood beams and the views of the mountains on one side the Straits on the other. We also loved the Hot Tub which made our stay even better - luxurious!

One the nicest self catering holiday homes we have stayed in. The house is extremely clean, very comfortable tastefully decorated. The hot tub is a fantastic added extra! We couldn't have asked for better, thank you.

A good location and the property was nicely decorated in a contemporary style with a good standard of furnishings. The hot tub was brilliant and the owners were so thoughtful and even provided extra towels. We wouldn't hesitate in booking to stay again if visiting that area.

The owner should be proud of the refurbishment. The upstairs living area was extremely comfortable and efficient. We just relaxed in the evenings and had a remarkably laid back time.

What a lovely place to stay, we had the best weekend away for ages, scenery was beautiful and the house was just right. The hot tub was perfect on a cold evening and so was the fire. Would like to come back and stay for longer next time.

Excellent accommodation. Newly refurbished and finished to a very high standard making this property fresh and modern and very comfortable. Would highly recommend this property. Lovely and warm hot tub made this a very relaxed and enjoyable break.

The property is beautifully restored with original beams. The owners have opened up the second floor so that, over the rooftops, you have great views of the mountains. From the other side, I am told that you can see Ireland on a clear day. Though the weather was not perfect we were warm and comfortable. Great location and great property. Can't go wrong.

This property was outstanding! The pictures really do not do it justice. The interior was decorated to an excellent standard, with extra furnishings and detail. It was spotless on arrival, with the log burner already burning and a bottle of red wine awaiting; all of the kitchen appliances and utensils were virtually brand new and to a great standard. The hot tub was clean, hot and bubbling. The views were spectacular, with a field to the front and snow capped mountains to the rear. We will definitely revisit the cottage again. Thank you.

We had wonderful stay in this amazing 'upside down' (sleep downstairs/dine up) converted vestry. It had all mod-cons + comforts of home, with some fantastic views either side (mountains or straits). The upstairs was especially remarkable with a modern feel but still retaining an original wall + amazing wooden beams (which i'm informed by owner Andy were painstakingly restored) Perfectly located with lots to do if weather ok, but wrap up if not & get out exploring & you won't be disappointed. There are a few supermarkets about 15 mins drive away, we used Tesco. A nice pub in the local village with good food & ale, right by the Straits. The owner Andy called by to ensure our stay was good & he offered good advice on places to visit. Overall we had such a relaxing break at the property, with added bonus of the hot tub meaning we would definitely come back here again. Would mention that when we when we stayed there the utility/shower/changing room by hot tub was not fully finished but this did not detract from our stay in any way. Thanks for a fantastic stay Andy.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Newly converted to a high standard. 5 adults managed very well. Mattresses too soft for us unfortunately and some sort of clothes hanging space needed in smallest bedroom when occupied by an adult but overall a wonderful place to stay.

Stayed here for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Open lounge/kitchen area very well equipped and the downstairs bedrooms all light and bright and well furnished. The tiny village of Seion is quiet and peaceful. The Festry is superbly placed to visit so many places in Snowdonia you will never be stumped for somewhere to go. The hot tub round the back is a delight to ease aching limbs from a days walking. The conversion of the Vestry as a whole has been very well done and is a delight to stay in with all its exposed beams, Thank you so for the opportunity to stay here. :)

This is a stunning property in a quiet location near Bangor and Caenarfon. As a group of friends who wanted a relaxing weekend away it suited us perfectly. The recent conversion work has been completed to a high standard resulting in a comfortable cottage with a somewhat luxurious edge. The upside down accommodation is somewhat quirky but works well! On arrival we were greeted by Lorraine who gave us a quick guided tour of the property and facilities and made us feel welcome. A bottle of wine was In the kitchen which was a nice little touch. She explained that some previous guests had broken a glass in the hot tub so it was out of action on our first night. It was no problem for us and we more than made up for it the following night! The hot tub is fantastic and well worth paying a little bit extra for. The log burner was blazing also which was great and a good supply of wood to get us started. The lounge area is very comfortable and cosy, we spent a lot of time there relaxing on the comfy sofas in front of the roaring fire. The tv is probably a fraction on the small size, but who goes away on a break to watch telly anyway? The kitchen is large and well equipped, with all the essentials supplied. No need to bring washing up liquid etc, it's all there, including some tea and coffee. We cooked two nights, no problems. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated and furnished, very relaxing spaces with large windows letting in plenty of light. The only small critical comment I can make is that the mattresses are very soft, perhaps at some point the owners might invest in better quality ones as I think it would be money well spent. We all agreed on this, but of course some people like a soft mattress and it didn't detract from our enjoyment of the property. The 2 bathrooms are very modern and spacious and were spotlessly clean. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Hen Festri, a quite stunning property which I would not hesitate to stay in again and will recommend to friends and family.

In a fantastic location, close to loads of things to do whatever the weather. A great cottage, loved the upside down arrangement. It was a high quality conversion.
