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."
