Beds are so comfortable and living room have great space for a big family. Open fire at the evenings make them so special.

I will post that link on my private web site - to bring more customers for You !! Thank You so much. "

Mrs Z West Midlands

" Excellent accommodation in idyllic surroundings. "

Miss R Merseyside

" Superb cottage in a stunning location. Fully equipped with everything you need, made for a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Thoughtful owner, arranged a lovely welcome, thank you. "

Mrs A Shropshire

" The cottage's comfort and facilities met and exceeded our expectations and we all enjoyed a lovely relaxing weekend. "

Miss R Merseyside

" This is a recently converted barn, which has been finished to a high standard. The cottage is in an excellent and is in a lovely peaceful setting. It is an ideal base for outdoor activities in Bala and the National White Water Centre. We only stayed for a long weekend and would have loved to have stayed longer to explore the area. "

Mr K West Sussex

" Fantastic size and setting. Can't wait to visit this cottage again. "

Mr L

" This cottage is spacious, modern and well equipped. It's in a very peaceful countryside location so it feels really rural, but it's pretty close to Bala for getting supplies or eating out. We were mainly walking, and the cottage has a great, warm utility area which is fantastic if you have muddy/wet shoes and need to hang coats/clothes. It is only about 1 hour to Snowdon so if you want to climb it, it's not too far and well worth the effort! "

Dr S Northamptonshire

" The cottage is very spacious. Above all we appreciated the location: very quiet and beautiful views. "

Mrs D

" The cottage is well worth a visit as it is very clean and spacious and I would recommend it for families. Although it is very quiet in the surrounding countryside it is close enough to Bala for the shops. The Eagle Inn in the village is within walking distance and the food is excellent. During our stay we visited King Arthurs Labyrinth, Llechwedd Slate mine, Portmeirion and went Whitewater Rafting. "

Mrs B Lancashire

" We appreciated the total peace - waking to bird song and the river, but it is still very close to super shopping in Bala. Driving along quiet lanes with the best views I have ever seen or walking/cycling in Coed y Brenin. "
