    Amazing Views, Lovely Walks, Far enough away to be away from it all, but close enough to local amenities. Gorgeous Cottage and friendly locals (human and animal).

    A lovely place to stay and beautiful views. We were a group of 7 visiting to go walking for the weekend. Cottage has everything you need. The Leisure facilities nearby were an added bonus for us with this accommodation especially since it was free for us to go. Thank you. Would recommend to friends. I did look to book again in March but dates we wanted are already booked up.

    The location was absolutely stunning. The cottage was rustic but you need to factor in the high cost of logs for the fire if it is cold. I think these should be supplied along with the holiday as it is in the hills it gets very cold at night. The cottage was rustic and the sun room was a stunning place to sit and look at the changing weather coming in over the Snowdonia peaks.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your kind comments. Regarding the heating in Cefn Cestyll, in 2015 a bio-mass boiler with full Central Heating, radiators and under floor heating was installed. Visitors have commented on the warmth and comfort that the property now offers. The temperature can be controlled by the guests. Should guests wish to use the wood burners a starter pack is provided.

    We went to Cefn Cestyll during a very wet and windy weekend but this did not dampen our holiday spirits. There was still plenty to see and do in the area and the cottage itself was wonderful. There were 9 of us in our party - 7 adults and 2 children and we were all very comfortable. It is well equipped; clean and warm and set in breath taking scenery. There is a stunning sun room which allows you to admire the views whilst enjoying meal times together and an efficient wood burner to keep the cottage snug in those chilly evenings. There is also ample parking. We will definitely return.
