Very nice peaceful weeks holidayMs Imelda Entwistle - 23rd April 2018
We enjoyed our stay though we didn't get the best of this summers weather. The owner was very helpful with any queries or questions. We liked the setting and the location. We enjoyed Sunday Lunch at the Gorwellin Visitor Centre outside Bala. The Mary Jones Story centre is worth a visit on Bala Lake. We had a good day in Llangollen. Visited Corwen, the Museum was open and very interesting.Couple from Gloucestershire - 29th August 2017
We enjoyed visiting Conwy and PortmerionPhilip from the Netherlands - 6th August 2017
Thoroughly enjoyable. We managed to spend quality time, exploring the beautiful countryside and the cottage was the icing on the cake.
Bala town offers a wide range of eateries. Climbing Snowdon is a great experience. Lots of lakes. Great cycling routes too. Portmeirion is also worth a visit.
It was perfect. Even the weather was perfect!Family form Llanelli - 7th May 2017
