    Good, quiet location which allowed us to walk and visit nearby Snowdonia. Characteristic, period cottage with modern conveniences. Well equipped to make you feel at home. Really enjoyed our stay here.

    A very cosy, warm and quirky cottage with a well equipped kitchen and lounge. We really enjoyed our 5 nights there. From the easy to hard walks. Don't miss the walk to Cwmorthin, an abandoned slate vilage. Only a 10 minute walk to shops and steam railway. The friendly and helpful caretaker PETA next door and owner Maggie a phone call away. Good location for day trips out to many beautiful spots in northern Wales.
