The cottage was beautiful and had all the facilities that we needed. It was really a perfectly beautiful setting and we had a wonderful time. The owners were so friendly and helpful. The hot tub was a brilliant feature of our holiday from soothing aching muscles after climbing Snowdon to just sitting in it watching the night sky clouds and stars. Just a fabulous setting for a perfect holiday.
Miss Sullivan

The property was the best house we have ever stayed in, which totally made our holiday enjoyable
Mrs Giles

This was a fantastic property ideally situated for explorations of the stunning scenery of Snowdonia and the Berwyn mountains. The hosts were extremely kind and helpful and attentive to all our needs. The three families visiting enjoyed a fantastic week soaking up the scenery, eating together in the spacious kitchen and relaxing in front of the wood burner in the lounge. The whole building was incredibly well decorated and the hot tub was a lovely extra. We spent several evenings eating outdoors, sipping sparkly and admiring the stars! What could be better! Fabulous!
Mr Redmond

The Farm House was a superb property with great facilities and was very comfortable. The best self catering property we've stayed in.
Mr Crawford

By far, The Farm House was the best property we, as a family have stayed in over the past 8 years. The spacious house and high quality carpets and curtains made it the quietest one we have stayed in for everyone to get a great nights sleep in very comfortable beds. Fantastic woodburner with superb dry logs supplied by the owners very efficient as was the central heating - great after wet but thoroughly enjoyable days out. Relaxation in the Hot Tub splendid. Perfect location to enjoy Bala lake kayaking, Treetops Adventure Park and a visit to Chester Zoo. Definitely recommend staying at this very comfortable house and, for the first time, we are considering returning to this property instead of searching for something else. Many thanks to the owner for such a superb holiday home.
