Fantastic week in spite of the weather. So many things to see in the area, and always lovely to come back to your beautiful cosy cottage.Mrs Carole Smith - 28th October 2017
Great week in this "home from home" cottage. Even the weather was good - a couple of wet mornings but for the most part dry and reasonably warmish. Plenty of good walking in the stunning scenery and plenty of Ffestiniog Railway trains running past the cottage. Watched the practice launch of the lifeboat at Criccieth on Thursday evening - well worth seeing.Mr Ian Bowden - 2nd September 2017
This was our second holiday in this cottage so what can one say, it is a very good holiday accommodation and the bonus of parkingMrs M Verity - 30th August 2017
Excellent property, really comfortable and cosy, bed was super comfy, log burner was wonderful addition and lovely big sofas for relaxing.Mrs Maxwell - 30th October 2016
This is an excellent property, hence several return visits. It is small but perfect for a holiday with the definite advantage of it's own off-road parking space. There are rough slate steps to the upper garden area, but this is wholy in-keeping with the area. To emphasis how good it is, I would be happy to own this cottage.Mr Bowden - 6th September 2016
Its an excellent place to stay and visit, and for the two of us who volunteer on the Ffestiniog Railway, this was an excellent base.Mr Smith - 15th August 2016
We loved the location, and the setting with the trains etc.The cottage was homely and nicely presented.Ms Lee - 19th October 2015
A lovely cottage in a very convenient location for all of Snowdonia's attractions.Mr Bowden - 3rd August 2015
Homely and comfortable. Well placed.Mr Mason - 10th June 2015
We had a wonderful stay, thank you, will be booking again.Mrs Smith - 3rd June 2015
Excellent property that is warm and cosy and an ideal base for the local area. It is ideal to have its own good size parking space. Garden areas are ideal for sitting out in the summer watching the steam trains go by. Every thing you need for a great relaxing holiday. Good dog friendly property.Mrs Harbidge - 9th November 2014
Cottage was lovely, very pleased with location, have recommended it to family and friends.Mrs Mettam - 1st September 2014
