Superb pet friendly cottage
This cottage is located in a lovely place called Tanygrisiau and is an ideal location for discovering Snowdonia and the other attractions in the area such as Harlech Castle, Betwsy-Y-Coed, Black Rock Sands beach, Porthmadog to name a few. Blaneau Ffestiniog for the Steam train is literally just down the road. Zip world & the slate caverns area also close by. There is so much to see & do and the views are just breathtaking. This cottage has been lovingly restored and the owners have put a lot of thought into making their guests welcome. There was a welcome pack consisting of Wine, Juice, Milk, Butter, Cake & biscuits for us on our arrival. Also, doggy bags, treats & blankets for our pets. There is a small back yard and seating in the front garden for a nice sunny day. There is a parking space opposite the cottage and we never had difficulty parking. There is a lovely little cafe just up the road from the cottage where you can enjoy the view of the lake & watch the steam train pass by on its way to Porthmadog. It was great to come back to the cottage, light the burner and chill out after a day of walking (a starter kit of logs & coal provided). We thoroughy enjoyed our time here and have re-booked for next year.

This is a fantastic cottage and we will definitely be returning.

A real home from home, we will be returning.
Mrs Marshall

The cottage was warm and cosy and the owners had thought about everything we could possibly need. The welcome package was a lovely start to the holiday and the fact they included treats for the dogs too! Would love to go back there again next year. The walks and the beaches we went to were brilliant.
