Absolutely lovely, especially having the log burner- lovely and cosy as the weather was cold. Love how this cottage has been thoughtfully renovated whilst retaining its charm and character. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is fabulous for exploring north wales.

Our stay made better by the most comfortable clean bed we have ever slept in whilst away from home.. Coal and wood added expense because we visited in winter. Beautiful scenery and easy to find nearby towns for shopping..

A neat little cottage with parking opposite and everything in the right place. The second bedroom is rather small, with no room for anything but the bunk beds, but for young children, it's OK. The location is good, generally very quiet and within a short drive of Porthmadog where shops can provide almost anything you need. A word of warning howeverRead more; If you want to eat out, do your research and book in advance; most pubs and hotels are not accepting walk-ins, even when they have plenty of space. Hide
