When we travel we always stay in self catering apartments. We shop and cook as if we were at home. Therefore a fully equipped kitchen is of prime importance. The only item that my husband would have liked would be a four cup drip coffee maker.
To be fair we found this amenity in only one of the seven accommodations we rented during our 25 day vacation in the UK. The kitchen is very well equipped. There are directions for using all the appliances. The oven did a great job on our artichoke chicken.
There were cones saving our parking space on our arrival. Arriving on Pirates weekend we stayed in town to enjoy the activities. We took a day trip on Monday setting out the cones as we left. Our parking space was waiting for us when returned later that day. So we advise taking day trips on weekdays.
We particularly enjoyed Bodnant Food Store located on the way to Bodnant Gardens where we stopped to purchase wine, vegetables and cheese.
The only issue we could fine fault with was the wobbly kitchen table. My husband tried to remedy this but failed.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hen Dafarn and would highly recommend this cottage to others.
