We were looking for a last minute stay in North Wales during the school summer holidays. With less than 24 hours virtually every property was booked and those that weren't looked less than desirable. We did however find Cefn Bwlch Bach. The pictures looked very nice but surely the reality would be a let down at this short notice?How wrong we were with that thought. The booking process through Wales Cottage Holidays was simple and the people on the phone very helpful. A clear e mail with directions and information was sent immediately after we'd made payment. The drive from South Wales was very pleasant and our phone call to the owner revealed her to be an incredibly welcoming and helpful person.The small lane down to the cottage was a bit of a squeeze, but manageable in a Volvo xc 90. Parking outside was easy.The gate into the private garden revealed a beautiful lawn with obviously loved and cared for trees, shrubs and flowers that added a riot of colours and scents and attracted butterflies and honey bees. The small terrace outside the front door was secluded and charming and the door opens straight into the lounge.In basic terms the lounge is a good size with a fully fitted kitchen, utility and bathroom off. The bedroom is large with views out to the rear terraces and has a good sized ensuite shower room. Beyond this basic information however is the care and attention given to the decor and furnishings. The family running the cottage are artistic people and the cottage provides a constantly surprising and tasteful display of pieces that create a warm and welcoming atmosphere infused with relaxation and tranquility. It is truly like walking through your front door and arriving home.In conversation with the owners we found that the cottage was available due to a cancellation. Our good fortune indeed. This is an ideal place for a couple to escape the rigours of city life whilst being in the ideal location to explore North Wales. We will most definitely be returning, taking care to book well ahead in future.Mr Dwyer - 22nd August 2016
