Wow, a lovely cottage, breath-taking views and walks. Black Rock Sands and Harlech beaches both lovely and dog-friendly! Portmeirion and Caernarfon a must. Must thank the lambs for hours of entertainment watching them gasonbol around the house is lovely. Thoroughly enjoyed our weeks' break & will recommend the cottage and area to ALL.

Hywel and Paul, Golucestershire

Wonderful week, lovely cottage, weather great. We will be back.


Couldn't have been more perfect. Have never stayed in a cottage in such an idyllic location - and the sun shone most of the time! Walks up Cwm Pennant past the abandoned slate works, and round the reservoir at Cwm Ystradllyn. Great industrial archaeology. And no phone or internet - bliss! Hope to return for more!
