The only self catering property we've returned to 3 times - speaks for itself!Mrs Sandra MORGAN - 31st December 2017
A perfectly peaceful retreat! We arrived late Friday night so the tea tray and Welsh cakes were a very welcome treat! Our first venture was across the hill towards Capel Garmon, it was a little wild and windy in Storm Brian! We managed to scale Snowdon too, very proud moment. All our adventures were all in the rain, but coming back to Pentre Bach made everything OK! What a beautiful cottage, so well equipped. We all slept well and had long lazy lay-in's as it was so peaceful. Thank you so much, we hope to return in the summer.Mr Corin Hill - 27th October 2017
Thank you so much for a wonderful time in your beautiful cottage. We loved our 'Pentre Bach' from first glance. Everything was perfect, beginning with the welcome tea and cakes. We had a wonderful time in Snowdonia and at the coast, only the weather was not always wonderful. But then it was even more delighting to come back to our cosy and warm Pentre Bach and sit by the fire in the evenings. We have to leave for now but we will be back for sure!Mr Philipp Rudert - 25th September 2017
Lovely cottage - felt at home straight away. Kitchen is very well equipped and dishwasher a real positive. Welcome tray lovely touch. WiFi connection/signal excellent - no complaints from our teenage daughter!! A peaceful retreat from our daily lives! Places worth a visit: Bodnant Gardens - truly stunning, a must for any gardener, National Trust but not expensive if not a member. Llandudno - lovely seaside town with lots of shops/restaurants/prom and beach. Conwy - city wall walk and castleMrs K Lawrence - 18th August 2017
Thank you for a comfortable stay in your beautiful cottage. We found everything that we needed and appreciated your attention to detail. Location is lovely.Mr D. H. Moore - 21st July 2017
We have fallen in love with this cottage and the wonderful countryside. Our boys loved the freedom to run about and explore, their imagination was in overload trying to find dragons and fairies - we are very sad to be leaving the cottage and the boys want to stay here forever. The cottage is cosy and very peaceful, only noise we have heard have been the sheep and the birds. We will certainly be returning to this part of Wales and hope to have many more holidays in this wonderful cottage.The Paterson Family - 14th July 2017
We really enjoyed our stay here and are really sad to be leaving. We did bird watching from the garden window and spotted a Goldfinch! We went on lots of amazing walks. My favourite place to visit was Port Meirion, it was a lovely day and we went on the beach (which is not on the map). We also really enjoyed Zip World Caverns, it was extremely fun, but you have to be very daring. We will definitely be coming back here.Mr Mike Kimberley - 7th April 2017
We had a lovely stay and used the cottage as a base for kayaking. There are some excellent places to eat - try 'The Riverside'Mr Hill - 9th September 2016
It was a lovely cottage. A complete home from home. We felt right at home and relaxed as soon as we had looked around and unpacked. We were a little unsure about the location as we have visited North Wales several times and usually favour being nearer Criccieth but need not have worried it was a fabulous location within easy reach of everywhere we wanted to visit. Would definitely like to stay here again it was really lovely.Mr Baxter - 5th September 2016
I am so pleased Pentre Bach was, for us, the right choice. It has been a very comfortable and pleasureable stay. I am going to miss the sound of the sheep and the beautiful countryside. The accommodation has been a perfect base to explore and relax.Mrs Barker - 13th August 2016
We could see good only - nice all round.Mr Carter - 24th June 2016
We really enjoyed our stay, the cottage is well situated and the welcoming tray with tea and welsh cakes was a nice touch. We had lovely weather and enjoyed lots of activities in and around the area, we will be back.Mrs Smith - 6th June 2016
It was perfect for our requirements... very cosy and comfortable.Ms Galbinski - 18th April 2016
Simply wonderful! We have had such a lovely time in a beautiful cottage in beautiful surroundings. We hadn't visited Wales for years and had forgotten how pretty it was. Thank you.Mrs Bywater - 1st April 2016
We loved Pentre Bach and it was the perfect base from which to explore the area. A real cosy little hideaway, just wonderful.Mrs Birkett-Matthews - 1st November 2015
Everything about property was fineMr Carter - 30th September 2015
One of the best cottages I have stayed in - can't wait to go back!Miss Newell - 29th September 2015
We had an extremely good holiday at Pentre Bach and found it a very comfortable place to stay and indeed, hope to return there in the future.Mr Alston-Smith - 8th September 2015
We enjoyed our stay, especially the birds in the garden. Beds extremely comfortable and plenty of hot water, and cottage nice and secluded.Mrs Hedger - 12th August 2015
Extremely comfortable and well presented cottage. Quite small but excellent.Mr Whitty - 13th July 2015
One of the most comfortable cottages we have stayed in - and we often have cottage hols - lovely, helpful neighbours too. We will certainly come here again - could hardly tear ourselves away from the cosy log fire to go out!Mrs Miller - 21st February 2015
The cottage is a real gem - if anyone requires a comfortable place to stay in this part of the world and wants peace and quiet and a base to tour the surrounding countryside, then this must be it. We have had a super week - this is our first visit but we're sure it won't be the last.Mr and Mrs Jeffery - 16th August 2014
One of the best cottages we have stayed in - Excellent.Mr Hoare - 9th June 2014
Well it looks like we've finally hit the nail on the head. Having tried holiday cottages in this area for over 10 years, this is a dream come true! This cottage is really as cute as it looks and is in the most wonderful tranquil setting.Mrs Ladlow - 1st January 2014
