From here you can choose to stay right where you are and pop on a movie on the Smart TV or head outside through the double glass doors that lead to the private patio and hop into the hot tub. What better way to end your day than to watch the stars above as your aches and pains are gently soothed by the bubbles?

We had a fantastic stay here, we were a group of 5 with two young children and the cottage was perfect. Plenty of space for the little ones outside to run round and everyone enjoyed the hot tub. The cottage is much larger than appears from the outside and in the pictures, the location is so peaceful and beautiful, we enjoyed the nights sat outsideRead more on the decking looking at the surrounding mountains and listening to the river. Close to Llanberis for shops etc. Would stay here again, we all loved it. Hide

We absolutely loved our stay at the property, it was comfortable and very well equipped. It was plenty big enough for the 5 of us and the hot tub was a delight. The location was also perfect for exploring north wales. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch. We would definitely return in future and have already recommended it to friends.

The cottage was immaculately clean upon arrival. The welcome pack was a lovely touch. The pub is fantastic and a very short, easy walk from the cottage. It is in a lovely location, and found with ease. The garden is lovely, although depending on your type of dog, it may not be classed as secure. There is an accessible slope down to the fast flowRead moreing stream. Thankfully, our dog was uninterested, but I could imagine this would be a nightmare with a water loving dog. The hot tub was clean, and checked during our stay. The cottage is exceptionally close to a neighbouring property, however it didnt affect us. Hide

The cottage was very clean and had the basics we would have expected. The person who does the changeovers is clearly doing a good job. The area is beautiful and we visited many great places. However, we felt that this cottage was overpriced for the standard of the fixtures and contents. The towels have all seen better days, there was only one teRead morea towel to last four people a week, the kitchen knives are blunt and all the interior doors and handles are cheap and flimsy and creak loudly, which meant no one could lie-in if others were up. One bedroom door can only be shut properly by slamming it. The dining table is squeezed into a small area which meant that with four people at least one person had to get up to allow others in or out of the space. Before booking holiday cottages we always check that all fuel and electricity is included in the price. Your description states that logs are "provided" but in fact it is only a starter pack of logs that is provided. This should be made clear. We wondered why no previous reviews had mentioned any of these issues, so we re-checked the website. Having checked over twenty different properties on your website we did not find a single review with any comment that could be deemed even slightly negative. Clearly you are cherry-picking the reviews you allow your customers to see. The kindest way to describe this practice is misleading, some might say it is simply dishonest. For this reason we would not use your company again. Hide
