Pleasant cottage at the foot of a mountain, own parking space, very modern and clean kitchen and bathroom, beds comfortable and adequate clothes storage, pleasant Rupert Bear themed lounge, though the covers on the three-piece suite could do with updating, short walk to Village centre, all in all very enjoyable
A very peaceful place in a lively village

The cottage is at the end of a quiet lane and therefore affords a high degree of privacy even though it is only a couple of minutes walk from the centre of the village. We booked for its associations with Bestall and so thoroughly appreciated the artefacts relating to his life and career. But even without these we would have enjoyed our stay. The kitchen had all that we needed and the bathroom was clean and refurbished (although pegs on the back of the door for hanging towels would be a good addition). There was a leak from a pipe in the roof space while we were there but thankfully someone came out to look at it very quickly.

This cottage was very nice and clean . perfect location for what we wanted. The patio was not very big but we made do. The rangers track up Snowdon is only 5 minutes away by car witch you can park directly over the road, and have a nice walk up Snowdon. when back at the cottage, it's only 2 minutes walk into the village for a well deserved pint. We will return one day.
Fantastic views, really cosy cottage

Great garden for taking your dog or children! loved it. Only negative bathroom needs a bit of a refurb - especially if you were looking for a romantic break.
beautifully positioned cottage , quite and clean.
