Wonderful Getaway

Staying in Hendre Cottage is a wonderful experience. You feel at home right away in this little house with modern and new furniture, an obvious love for the detail on part of the owners.The kitchen offers all you need to self-caterers,and so does the cosy living room.Even a homemade cake and biscuits were waiting for us as a welcome. The location of the cottage next to the farm house allows a quick sneaking over to find out about things in question. You will also receive helpful information on walking paths in the area- a variety is available!-, and the fact that you are staying on the farm of extremely helpful and caring owners brings about easy access to eggs and milk.The eggs come from hens you can see running about and picking, also cattle you can watch from your windows. The really only thing that is not perfect with this cottage is that it is a bit difficult to find.A sign at the roadside would help here a lot- but is not allowed to be put up as we were told.

Can't wait to go back!

It would be very difficult to find fault with Hendre Cottage. From the moment that we arrived after a six hour drive, we were made to feel very welcome by our wonderful hosts. First impressions are always very important and Hendre Cottage did not disappoint. It was scrupulously clean and tidy and we found a delicious bara brith waiting for us to enjoy with a much needed cuppa. The weather was kind to us at the beginning of our stay and we enjoyed some spring sunshine but it deteriorated as the week went on. However, not once did we feel chilly in the cottage. It was incredibly warm and cosy and the log burner added charm and character. Wood for the burner was plentiful from our hosts as were fresh eggs from the chickens on the farm. Hendre Cottage is a good base to explore the Snowdonia National Park; Snowdon about 30 minute drive, Coed-y-Brenin Mountain Bike Centre about 5 minutes, Mawddach Trail and Precipice Walk Dolgellau about 15 minutes to name but a few. We cannot recommend Hendre Cottage highly enough. It has left a lasting impression with us and we cannot wait to return in the very near future.

Mind the stairs

We rented Hendre Cottage for a short 3 night break and we would all have happily stayed longer. Immaculately clean; fully equipped; modern; convenient and a very pleasant and generous owner. On the downside this cottage is not as "stand alone" as it might appear and traffic noise from the main road is apparent. Bedroom 2 and the dining area are cramped,whilst there is a very tight and narrow spiral staircase between floors. Anyone with mobility or serious weight issues should appreciate this before booking. That said we would all happily return.

perfect getaway

My wife, teenage daughter, mother in law and me spent a week in august at this wonderful upside down, lambing barn conversion. The cottage is in the perfect location, in the grounds of a working farm, for exploring Snowdonia and the surrounding area. When we arrived we met by friendly owners and once inside the cottage were welcomed by a warm, freshly baked, delicious cake and fresh eggs from the resident chickens. The cottage was spotlessly clean with everything you could ask for including 2 bathrooms which was a godsend with a houseful of women!! An obvious amount of care and attention has gone into the conversion, which includes a log burner in the lounge for those chilly evenings. We were blessed with wonderful weather for the week of our stay so we didn't need this. The views over the farmland and Welsh countryside across to the mountains of Snowdonia were wonderful. We all felt totally relaxed and unwound at the end of our stay and were very sorry to leave. We will certainly return in the near future and I can't recommend this cottage highly enough. Thanks again for a wonderful week.

Lovely Cottage for exploring south Snowdonia area

This cottage was very functional and homely, in a wonderful part of North Wales and being just off the a470, in a great location for holidaying in this area. Everything was wonderful, both bedrooms having an en-suite was really handy, and the accommodation was spacious and homely, with a nice balcony from the living area providing outdoor space from which to view the scenery. The owner was very friendly, and supplied us with eggs from their wonderful hens which came to greet us each day, and also provided us with the most heavenly Bara Brith cake on our arrival. We will definitely return.

A little 'tardis' !

A little gem of a cottage, so well laid out with ample space for boots, coats, bikes, climbing gear etc in the excellent utility area. Everything you need for a relaxing break, we were really comfortable and cosy here and appreciated the friendly welcome. The upstairs living / dining areas are light and surprisingly spacious and well designed. The cottage is very clean and modern, every appliance you could need. A great value property , I'm sure you should be charging more ! Thank you for the lovely tea loaf and all the really tasty eggs.
