    Lovely cottage and great value for money when we stayed. We visited to do the local Zipworld activities, so the location was great for us - however, there wasn't a huge amount to do locally other than that so would depend what sort of holiday you were after. Plenty of nice dog walks if you've got a car. There's a local Co-op within 5 mins that supplied all we required for a weekend. Other than that the closest supermarket is 13 miles away! The owner's communication was great and was very helpful and flexible; allowing us to bring our 3 well behaved pooches which was so appreciated. Nice secure garden for them, although very steep with a rocky path up and no barriers so wouldn't be ideal for children or energetic dogs needing a good run around. Lights to the top would be good addition. The cottage was clean and tidy and the heating pre-programmed which was great and always warm at the right times. Shower was great too, towels provided, beds comfy, Sky on downstairs TV - surprisingly very spacious. The cottage is on a VERY busy road, extra care needed with dogs/children as the parking space is outside the cottage essentially on the pavement. The neighbours moaned to us about having parked 0.5m too far back but that's no reflection on this cottage - I think they were also guests anyway. The only things that would have been handy would have been condiments such as salt and pepper and perhaps a little carton of milk as we arrived late, plus enough toilet roll haha! Overall a great stay and thoroughly enjoyed - would return if visiting the area again - thank you

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thanks very much for the very detailed feedback on our cottage. I'm sorry there was no milk, this must have been an oversight as our housekeeper usually puts a pint in the fridge for each incoming set of guests. With regards the area, amenities and tourists options being in a rural location you do have to be prepared to travel a bit further afield than in a city, but this comes from being located in the national park. There's plenty of museums, castles, beaches and other activities all within an hours drive of the cottage. We're certainly not short of a multitude of different walks for all abilities right from the front door.

    The cottage was beautiful and the owners have thought of everything you could ever need on a holiday in Wales! We will definitely be going back again, it's in a perfect location for Zip World, Festiniog.

    We really enjoyed our stay. A lovely little cottage for a weekend. Our only issues were being a bit chilly due to a broken radiator but we were warned about this and communication with the owner was good. We also hadn’t realised it was on a fast road so we’re very aware of our dog whenever the door was opened. For our weekend plans though it was well priced, well equipped, clean and the beds were comfortable.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; So glad to hear you've had a good time despite the issues with the heating. We've now had a new system installed throughout the cottage so there shouldn't be any problems.
