Fantastic family holiday retreat

This cottage was ideal for a family holiday,secluded and quiet but close to all amenities.The garden is large and children friendly with plenty of places to run and explore. My young children loved running out every morning and saying morning to the cows and I loved the fact that I knew they were totally safe and secure. It was fabulous that the owners were "hands off" but nice to know that they were always at the end of a phone. The cottage was very well equipped, just ideal for families with young children, the stair gate was one of the reasons that I booked this cottage!!! My family are still talking about the cottage and holiday and we are going to return again very soon. All at a very reasonable price.

A little piece of peace on the edge of a national treasure

What a fantastic place to stay. We have had a brilliant week. The cottage was lovely. All your needs are catered for. An open log fire which we did not light due to the unusually hot weather for this time of the year. A well equipped kitchen and clean, tastefully furnished living areas. The gardens were beautiful and we were greeted every morning with the chattering of the birds on the feeders. We saw so many different kinds each day. One night we were woken with the sound of an owl screech. An eerie sound for those that have not had the experience. The cottage is the perfect base for walking in Snowdonia National park or visiting the many sights in North Wales. The town of Llanrwst was about 20 minute walk down the lane, maybe a little rural if wanting to walk to village pub(s) and back, but has a wonderful butcher (Jones) for those bbq moments and one of the best Indian takeaways.The Ty ashi Balti house. The food was excellent and seemed a lot cheaper than we'd pay at home. (thats a seperate review). A selection of the local shops to choose from. However, of the two mini markets I would choose the Co op as the Spar seemed a bit free with its prices. I would highly recomend the cottage for those who like to escape but by not too far.

The nicest location of any cottage I have stayed in before.

My daughter and myself really enjoyed our week and we took our dogs with us. They were really at home and enjoyed investigating the beautiful grounds to the cottage. We felt very lucky to have found such a lovely place and will definitely be going again hopefully next year.

Idyllic haven

This is a fabulous cottage amidst peaceful countryside/farmland. Beautifully kept cottage and garden. Beds extremely comfortable and roll-top bath and Rayburn a real bonus. Within walking distance of lovely town centre featuring spectacular riverside walks, historic church and popular 'Tal y Bont' cafe. Highly recommended.

Utterly Breathtaking with every comfort

We have just come back from this cottage and really didn't want to. It really is a beautiful part of the world and so close to much of the beauty of Snowdonia and the Conwy areas. Everything in the cottage is accommodating and it has clearly been lived in and chersihed, as everything is so well thought out and was obviously once a working smallholding, with hens and a polytunnel for all the fruit and veg! All ready for cooking on the fabulous Rayburn in the kitchen. Even the dutch barn had a washing line, for those rainy days. Scenery and views were stunning and were shared with dairy cattle, birds, comical squirrels and sheep. The buzzards soared daily and we were entertained by the ever melodious songthrush. Enjoyed a barbeque in the pretty summerhouse too. Not for those afraid of solitude, or in want of night life, but If you're like me and look for total peace and breathtaking views, it really is just what the doctor ordered. We really weren't keen on coming home at all and can't wait to return in the autumn.
