A lovely break in the scenic and amazingly diverse Snowdonia, the cottage is in the middle of nowhere surrounded by rolling countryside with just sheep for neighbours - very quiet only showing an interest while we sat in the hot tub looking out towards the hills around us.

A spectacular location, it is down a long and slightly rough driveway, so don't be put off and think you're in the wrong place - signs already up are very helpful. Cottage is cosy with everything you need, warm and comfortable, conservatory useful for wet clothes and lovely on a sunny day. Hot tub feels private and views are amazing, owners extremeRead morely helpful. Just a note, be aware due to height of bathroom, we could not stand under the shower, inconvenient but not a major issue, a lovely stay! Hide

Lovely cottage in the middle of nowhere - perfect for a break away from normality! Closest town is a 10 minute drive which is ideal. Hot tub was lovely, and cottage was warm and cosy.
