Would love to come again. Thank you so very much. Coal has loved it all as we have.Thank you again

Davies Family

This has been a very comfortable and welcoming cottage for us to stay in. We have enjoyed the wildlife and sitting in the garden looking at the views of the mountains. Saw some Red kites and a few Buzzards. We climbed Cader Idris and also visited Harlech Castle.

London Family

Had a wonderful, relaxing two weeks. The children had their much needed freedom and space. Surroundings are magnificent and very peaceful a real retreat for a “Londoner.” The cottage was very comfy and well equipped. We would love to come back.Many thanks

The Jones Family

Lovely cottage, beautiful scenery. The walk to Cader Idris was outstanding, Its been so tranquil to come to North Wales and be able to catch a sun tan, because the weather has been so good. Many thanks.(p.s the dogs had a great time)

Jenny & Peter, Northants
20th February 2013

We have had a fantastic time. Last year we went to California and this was easily as good! The views are life-enhancing and we have enjoyed several excellent & varied walks from the Precipice Walk to the Mawddach Estuary. Great meals at Gwernan Hotel (up the valley) and George III in Dolgellau. A wonderful, comfortable and clean cottage-so nice to find such a place where dogs are welcome. Thanks to Liz for a warm welcome. Will be back.
