Comments: "A completely represented cottage with a wealth of well thought out touches, the works done to the area credit to the owner."
Ms P (June 2021): "Great property, very well prepared, clean and cosy. It was just missing a hairdryer. But that didn't ruin our break (although my hair was a mess??) The hot tub was great, we used it almost every evening. Beds & the pillows were comfortable, which was such a treat. Everything you could want for a small cottage."
P (October 2020): "Waterfall cottage is a gem. The natural and rocky garden has been put to amazing use with different areas to be able to use such as the decking platform, the hot tub and the beautiful crows nest with its incredible views. No matter the weather these different areas meant that the cottage and its grounds were usable and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again."
Mrs H (September 2020): "Quaint cosy cottage in a lovely quiet setting. Great views from the summer house."
Mrs B (September 2020): "Waterfall Cottage in Blaneau Ffestinniog was amazing. Quaint and quirky cottage with everything you need and more. Lovely decking area, fab hot tub, pretty summer house with amazing views. Comfy beds. Cosy lounge/dining area. Cant wait to come back."
Ms F (August 2020): "The cottage was perfect and information given was clear and helpful."
Mr G (Sept- Oct 2019): "We had a wonderful week in this charming cottage. Overlooking the sleepy town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, it's in a peaceful spot, allowing us to truly get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. It's a great base from which to explore Snowdonia and north Wales. The cottage can sleep up to five, but for two of us and our dog it was just the right size. The owner was very accommodating of our short-notice booking, helpful before our visit and took the time to check in with us during our stay. The heating had even been turned on in advance of our arrival, which was a nice touch. The cottage has recently been refurbished to a high standard and it really felt like a home from home. Our only suggestion is that the kitchen could benefit from some wine glasses and a small dishwasher, if space allows. We loved the wood burner and sun room on the cliff above the cottage, which was a perfect spot to enjoy some local gin as the sun went down. We were sad to leave at the end of the week and would happily stay again."
