What a fantastic break we had, the location and cottage were second to none, The walks around the farm are breath taking, only a few minutes from Bala but far enough for a bit of peace and quiet, can't wait to get back next year.

Set up on a hill with stunning views over the countryside are these beautiful cottages. They look small from the outside but you enter into a very well appointed and large living room and kitchen. A very comfortable sofa is provided and a wall mounted TV. The kitchen area is spacious and well equipped.. Lovely staircase to the upstairs to a big batRead morehroom and bedroom. The bed was plenty big enough and comfortable. The owners are very helpful and friendly. Had a great stay will hopefully return. Hide

Thank you for a wonderful stay, helped by good weather and Sue - who is a lovely, friendly host. The views across the valley are mesmerising! The cottage was beautifully clean and well equipped. The only note of caution is that there are multiple cottages on the same site and the outdoor areas are not separated.

The view from the front of cottage was great, staying on a working farm was a nice change however, we had our two spaniels with us and both were restricted to the slabbed front garden or had to be on leads. A fenced off field for them to run free would of made their holiday. The family run business made us feel at home and the girls were very helpfRead moreul.
