Excellent cottage with fabulous views
Really excellent cottage, nicely laid out with high quality furniture and fittings, including the kitchen and bathrooms. Wonderful views over Snowdonia, from either the lounge, front bedroom or decking areas. Friendly and helpful owner living in adjacent farmhouse. Great escape, with nothing but sheep in the surrounds. Few tips; * the cottage in quite a remote location, with steep narrow roads/tracks for access, although all perfectly feasible for a standard car. Leave 30 minutes to get to Betws y Coed or A55 junction. * internet access is ok, although not sufficient for streaming video's. * mobile phone coverage can be obtained from the car park and the approach road, but not from the cottage itself. * nearest village, Eglwysbach, is about 1 mile away, but does not have a shop or mobile phone coverage, but the Bee Inn pub is nice with good food. Nearest shops are Llanrwst and Llandudno. * easiest route in is from Bodnant Garden to Eglwysbach, then on to the cottage - other routes are very steep/narrow.

We liked the luxury of the house and the peace and quiet of the location. It was the perfect retreat, and so close to so many places of interest in North Wales.
Mr Edwards

This holiday cottage was superb and the views were spectacular. We were a group of 8 friends and the living area was perfect for being able to cook and socialise without feeling like you were living on top of each other. We would definitely go again. Thankyou!
Mrs Watson

It was everything we expected, the owner was lovely and helpful. We loved our stay and were sad to leave.
Mrs Winn-morgan

The layout of the house and everything in it, made for a lovely break. The kitchen was well equipped enough to cook Christmas lunch! It was a very warm house.
Mrs Gowthorpe
