Mr & Mrs C.T. (July, 2017): "Such a warm, cosy, well equiped cottage. Set in a breath taking location"
Mr & Mrs C (July, 2017): "Thank you for the gorgeous holiday! Being here was totaly an increadible experence. The house, farm and beauty here exceeded all our expectations."
Mr & Mrs E (Sept, 2015): "Just a quick email about our stay at Swallow's Nest. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. It was wonderful to be able to take our dog with us, who enjoyed a swim in the near by stream everyday. The location in conveniently situated to some of the most lovely visitor attractions but it was so nice to return to the tranquillity of the valley in the evening. Our hosts could not have been more helpful, even leaving Welsh cakes for our arrival.Please extend our thanks and best wishes to them."
Mr P (Sept, 2015): "My sister and I loved Swallow's Nest, its remoteness, the incredible beauty of Cwm Pennant, the warm homeliness of the house and the friendliness of the owners. It was ideal for us as we enjoy being away from the 'madding crowd'. Highlights of the week were travelling on the Welsh Highland and Ffestiniog Railways and the day spent at the Lloyd George museum and cottage."
Mrs T (August, 2015): "We had a great time at Swallows Nest. It was well equipped and beautifully clean throughout. The decor is quite dated but it suited the house and the immaculate cleanliness made up for that. The owners were available if we had any problems, which we didn't. The setting is amazing, well off the beaten track, and there are good walks from the door. It does take a while to get anywhere as the house is at the end of the valley but the views and seclusion were worth that small sacrifice. We would go there again."
Mr S (August, 2015): "It was excellent thank you, the house was in a great location and the amenities in the house and instructions were very good. The owner was also on hand given he works a 100 yds away and very accommodating and nice. Definitely a house that would be hard to beat in Snowdonia I suspect."
