Mrs C (Sept 2016: "Lovely holiday, great weather. Beautiful countryside. Thank you"G J (Dec, 2014): "I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Trawsfynydd. The cottage is very picturesque likened to the preverbal biscuit box cottage. The village was very friendly and has several shops that fulfil all your shopping needs. The selling point for 5060 has to be the view from the back garden over the lake which you are afforded fabulous evening sunset views over the hills. I would strongly recommend a visit to the village and stay in the quaint cottage."
