Toilet not working to adequate standard. An enclosed area for the dog would be an advantage.Cottage was lovely and comfortable.

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

Lovely to hear the cottage was comfortable, and to see it was an overall lovely experience. Apologies to hear of the toilet issues, this is something we will pass along to the owner now for their information to ensure this is looked into. Hope to see you again in the future!

Absolutely gorgeous property with so much character.and a perfect location for Llyn and Snowdonia.. Sparkling clean throughout, warm and cosy with lovely attention to detail. Rooms have high ceilings, very thick walls and are bright and airy. Kitchen is huge and really well equipped . Beds so comfortable with quality bedding.. Covid measures fully in place but do not detract from comfort. Thoughtful array of essentials provided on arrival. So much history within the cottage. Dont miss the beehive bread oven. You cant miss the mountainous stairs but so many lovely features retained. 3 properties together but there are private and shared areas of the extensive grounds allocated. Make sure to go to the viewpoint through the woods for a stunning sea view , and catch the bunnies playing on the lawn by the drive. It's obvious that a great deal of thought and attention has gone into making this place so special. Thank you.

A lovely warm and comfortable place to stay. The cottage was in beautiful surroundings and not too far to walk from the beach and shops. Our only comment was the lack of recycling facilities.

Beautiful property and fantastic grounds to explore. Very close to High Street and local (pebbly) beach plenty of sandy beaches within 30 mins drive. great location for exploring the Peninsula and Snowdonia. The bathrooms literally sparkled they were so clean! Well equipped kitchen with everything we needed. Only caution would be the very steep, stone staircase for anyone with mobility issues

Our second visit to this cottage. Another enjoyable week in a beautiful town. Cottage is brilliantly equipped and the internet was working. Lexi enjoyed the garden and venturing into the sea for the first time! 10/10 would recommend.

Huge thanks to the owners and Quality Cottages for being so kind and helpful. A superb cottage in a lovely location- our week was brilliant – must come again.

30th September 2016

This has to be one of the best holiday homes we have stayed in. Despite some mixed weather we have been down to Blackrock Sands. The Rabbit Farm, Ffestiniog Railway, Portmeirion, and we've had plenty of walks with Chloe and Amber the dogs. They have had a fantastic time. We have been very comfortable in the cottage. Everything was great, and we felt the owners have achieved a very high standard. Hope we can visit again.

Had a nice 6 days here and walked and cycled despite unsettled weather. Lovely cottage, lit the stove in the evenings (even though it's July!) Dylan's restaurant at the far end of the main beach recommended – nice for cocktails overlooking the sea.
