The perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the cottage for a group of 9 girls for a long weekend away at the end of September.

Victoria provided fantastic service before we even arrived - the welcome guide sent to us was extremely helpful and Victoria could not do enough to make sure our stay was perfect.

The photos do not do justice to the cottage - it definitely had the wow factor when we arrived! The floating wall is a lovely touch and the open plan design meant it was plenty big enough for all of us. The cottage was spotlessly clean with lots of thoughtful extras (the welcome hamper was a lovely touch)!

The location was stunning and although our planned zipwire at Zipworld was cancelled due to high winds, we still had plenty to see and loved curling up in front of the cosy wood fire.

We loved our time in Snowdonia and are already planning a return visit! Would highly recommend to anyone considering a trip to Wales.

Fabulous getaway in the hills

  • 5 of 5

Came and stayed with friends over a long weekend and had a fantastic time. The house is gorgeous, Victoria is incredibly welcoming and a great host. Not forgetting Fintan, who is also a delight! The house is really well situated for the beach, woods AND hills. There are some gentle and picturesque walks from the house and Cadair Idris (awesome on a clear day) is in striking distance. There is also wild swimming nearby. We were blessed with the weather but I'd be keen to come back even if it had rained all weekend.

A fabulous farmhouse in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Twelve of us stayed at the property and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The farmhouse is exactly as advertised. It is modern, spacious and well equipped with a large kitchen and dining area.

The finishes inside are contemporary and of a high quality and give a luxurious feel to the property.

Even with twelve people it felt spacious inside with plenty of room for people to spread out and relax.

There is a gentle walk close to the property which is about 9 miles and passes alongside the estuary of the river Mawddach providing great views of the surrounding mountains with the bonus of a great pub serving food and real ales at the end.

In the hills above the farmhouse are Cregennan lakes which are beautiful and from which you are treated to some spectacular views of the mountains around and a birds eye view of the estuary.

The owner Victoria was warm and welcoming and more than happy to help make our stay as enjoyable as possible, offering advice on local walks and places to visit.

Overall the farmhouse is a first class property in a wonderful location and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
