We had a lovely time staying here over Christmas. The cottage felt like home immediately and it was a lovely place to spend cold evenings in front of the fire. The house was spacious but cosy and having a big well stocked kitchen was great for big Christmas dinners. The location is great with gorgeous views and close proximity to Snowdonia as well as lovely towns and villages. Alys Elphick - 4th January 2019
