Beautiful house, amazing views!
Wow! This cottage is fabulous with the most breathtaking views. The cottage has 3 very good sized bedrooms, 3 beautiful bathrooms and is very clean with everything you need. The hot tub is fabulous and well maintained and there is a BBQ and good outdoor seating areas. There are lots of great walks in the area and it is great for wild life spotting. Reasonably close to the beach and other attractions. It is in a fairly remote location, up some steep tracks, we had booked an ASDA delivery that couldn't get to us but they arranged to meet us at a nearby hotel but would be better to do a click and collect. We would definitely come back, we have loved every minute!

Perfect getaway!
We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Red Kites Retreat. Everything about it was perfect. The cottage is decorated beautifully and was spotlessly clean. Having such warm weather meant we could take full use of the decking area and lovely hot tub. The owners couldn?t have been more friendly and accommodating and we are already planning our return for next year! Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend!

Stunning retreat in the beautiful Welsh countryside
This is possibly the best self catering accommodation that I have ever rented. Luxury family house with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Stunning views from the terrace and garden. Excellent layout and very friendly owner. Highly recommended.

Carlsberg don't do holiday cottages, but if they did........ An amazing cottage with the most incredible views. We loved it and will be back.

A wonderful retreat nestled in the hills...
We stayed at Red kites retreat over new year in 2016. The owner, Lucy was very welcoming and the welcome bara brith was lovely with a cuppa! Our party comprised of adult friends and our 3 children ( ages 9, 9 and 11) and our 2 dogs. The location was lovely, amazing views from the cottage (esp red themed bedroom!) and all of the facilities were of an excellent standard, it felt very luxurious. We went for walks every day and popped into the Bee hotel for a swift one on the way home. The pub was small but wonderful. Think its closed on Mondays and Tuesdays however, you may want to check. We went to nearby Bodnant gardens and ate at the Hay loft on New years day. (the setting there was fabulous but the food wasn't as fab as we'd expected, so that was a little disappointing.) There are no shops in the village, nearest place to get supplies is Bodnant Gardens. The nearest shops we went to were Llandudno, which was a nice few hours meandering. The bath! The bath needs a special mention! It was quite simply the most luxurious bath I've ever had! Just what the doctor ordered after some of our walks! The living area was very cosy with the fire going and we all sat and played many a board game at the kitchen table. The open plan space was great so we didn't feel isolated whilst cooking for the masses! The mobile phone network was non existent, but the WiFi was good enough to browse the web. However, if its streaming you're after, its not suitable for that. Lots of other reviews have mentioned the steep lane access to the cottage, but we managed to get up and down in normal cars with no problems at all, (and we don't have 4x4s). The sleeping collie dog in his kennel was a highlight for the children each time we passed the farm lower down the lane, and had to stop for them to wave. (Not sure he noticed to be honest!) All in all it was a wonderful week away relaxing, and making memories with our friends and family. We would love to return.
