Was very good, quick and easy to find and get around, was far enough out to enjoy the peace and quiet but close enough to not be too far out of the shops if you needed milk or bread Mr John Lewis - 4th June 2018
The location was superb and the exceptional weather made our weekend break memorable. Mr Ron Parker - 9th May 2018

Really enjoyed our holiday in Wales. There were plenty of things to do, the scenery was spectacular and the weather was lovely. All in all a really lovely holiday.Mr McInally - 8th September 2014
A really enjoyable stay with a beautiful view. Very peaceful location but with easy access to any part of North Wales. The property was very comfortable with all the necessary equipment. I would stay there again. I would also recommend using Wales Holidays as they dealt with our booking in a very professional way.Mrs Harland - 1st July 2014
