Guest Book Comments

A peaceful two week holiday. The cottage is lovely and well looked after. It’s well located for hill walking (you can get to most of the popular routes in under 30 minutes) and for days out at the coast. We were very grateful of the welcome biscuits and wine. This was a nice touch. The cottage is good and we would recommend it. There are two areas to consider for improvement that would have made it excellent: - We stayed for two weeks and would have appreciated a refresh of bed linen and some cleaning after the first week. - There was an information pack with details about the cottage, but it wasn’t obvious and we only found it after two days.

A wonderful welcome in the shape of cookies, a bottle of wine and milk in the fridge. Everything was pristine and we were so impressed with the owner's carpentry skills. Perhaps a new TV would improve the property as the volume is getting dodgy, but apart from that we were happy and very comfortable.

Best cottage we've stayed in so far in terms of cleanliness and comfort. Location a little remote though.

We found Bluebell cottage to be very clean , comfortable & well equipped. In a lovely , quiet location , close enough to visit all areas in North Wales. We spent a lovely week there & would recommend it for anyone wanting to visit North Wales.

J Lloyd - 19th June 2018

The woodwork in cottage was exceptionally beautiful and finished to a very high standard. Everything about the cottage itself was five star. Disappointed that we had to ask for earlier entry than 4.30pm. Surely 3pm entry is an industry standard. Directions to and from cottage might be better to use the long way round and avoid one of the stretches of narrow single track lane where locals seem to expect right of way.

Thank you for your 5 star review we are very glad that you enjoyed your stay.  4.30pm is our standard check in time, however we do inform all guests that if they want to arrive earlier they can contact the owner direct to arrange this.  We will liaise with the owner to look into a change in the directions that guests receive to make the journey easier.

You have only tried to contact me since the review so I do not appreciate the misleading comments above.

Really lovely cottage - even better than expected and a fantastic base for our first holiday with a baby. The cottage was perfect for a little one and we loved all the finishing touches - wine, cake, milk, basics provided. Great location to explore North Wales too. Thank you so much.

We had a wonderful two weeks in your beautiful cottage. Best choice for all kinds of activities. We climbed Snowdon on a perfect sunny day, crossed the hills with mountain bikes and had lazy days on the beaches in the north. Sure to come back soon. Thanks for a perfect holiday.
