The cottage was comfy and cosy located in a quiet area although very central to the whole of Snowdonia and within easy reach of the coast. The cottage provided a welcome haven at the end of the day where we could cook a meal, relax and watch television whilst toasting our toes by the log fire. The scenery in the area is spectacular with many lakes and mountains, plenty to do and plenty to see.

Liked everything, we had a wonderful holiday.

We have just had a wonderful holiday in a Charming 18th Century Miner's Cottage. The owners Angie and Rich had thought of everything and even left for us a lovely Bara Brith Cake and a bottle of wine with a card wishing us a nice holiday. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, milk even herbs and spices were supplied. It was very clean and the King size bed was very comfortable just what you needed after a climb up Snowdon!. The Cottage is very well Located and Tanygrisiau is very picturesque village with some wonderful walks to go on. All the Information for the walks and attractions in the surrounding area are all there for you to read in the cottage. You really don't want for anything. We were blessed with lovely weather and were able to do all we had planned to do. I have a feeling that we will be returning to this wonderful cottage as there is still so much to see and do!

You can walk out immediately from the cottage and access the mountains with stunning views of the Snowdonia range and down to the sea and can see all sides on a clear day. . The cottage had everything we needed and half the time I cooked from there. It was fitted out well and attractive to the eyes giving a homely feeling of comfortableness.. the owners had clearly thought thoroughly about every aspect and I found every question I had was answered
Mr Harris

Absolutely fantastic cottage, the owners have gone out of their way to make this a home from home including everything you could think of possibly wanting and everything that probably didn't even enter your head! The wealth of information on the surrounding area was superb, we visit Snowdonia a fair amount and even we learnt about new walks near Ffestiniog that we'd never come across before, we barely went anywhere else this time as we had too much fun exploring. Without a doubt we will be returning to this cottage, just superb!
