"Comfortable and Cosy"
Strawberry Mill is a beautiful little cottage.
The owner is lovely and very accommodating.
The cottage itself is very comfortable and cosy. We were a family of 5 visiting the week to attend a family wedding. A lovely pub is walking distance from the cottage. 5-10 min drive to the beach. Close to the town Llandudno and 45 min drive to Snowdon.
We look forward to visiting Strawberry Mill sometime in the future.
The Bell Family
Thank you so much that you let me know that you had a wonderful stay. If I could have made your special family occasion like wedding enjoyable by staying here, I feel so chuffed. I hope to see you again.

"Good facilities, comfortable accommodation, friendly and helpful hostess"
Quiet location in grounds of main house, very friendly and helpful hostess but not intrusive, Excellent location for visiting historical towns and buildings, castles and gardens in North Wales. Accommodation of high quality, and good value. If we should revisit North Wales, Strawberry Mill would be at the top of our accommodation list. We had a splendid week varying between relaxing in the comfortable cottage and rushing around to the many nearby places of interest. Altogether a great week.
Thank you for your review. I agree that this location is beautiful and rural yet central and easy to get to any attractions by main road. I feel great satisfactions that you could enjoy your stay here, I sincerely hope to see you again.

"A lovely cottage!"
I travelled for the night with my husband and then 5 year old daughter so that we could visit the Welsh Mountain Zoo nearly. It was a really good location to get there and in to town. We were near enough to go to Llandudno for the day too. The place was warm and cosy and the owners friendly. We loved the bath! There was a great pub a short walk away with lovely food and views.
Thank you so much for your visit. I wish it made that special touch enough for you!
I Hope to see you again soon.

Really enjoyed our stay in Strawberry Mill cottage. Very comfortable, warm and cosy. Well equipped with everything needed for our stay including a welcoming gift of chocolates. Nice position with good views. Seunghee was very friendly and helpfully with lots of knowledge about the local area and places to go. Would love to visit again soon
Thank you for your review. Good complements indeed encourage me to try harder for the comfort of my guests. I will try to bake a cake next time for you!!! I hope to see you again.

"Excellent value for money, beautiful location, considerate owner!"
My husband and I picked this location as our first Trip Advisor holiday cottage. It is small but well presented, set away from the main roads and on the same property as the proprietress, Seunghee.
The location is excellent, at the top of a hill to the town (very steep and lengthy walk, not for the unfit), there is a pub and a convenience store a short, easy walk away and it is very peaceful. Make sure you use the driving directions to the house that Seunghee provides - she knows what she's talking about!! Access to the house is very straightforward if you follow those direction and makes it easy to find after a day exploring.
There are some comments that the cottage is too close to the owners house - Seunghee and her family are very considerate and we used the curtains and blinds as all tenants should - this for us was therefore never a problem. Our niggles with the property are minor - the cottage is in need of some TLC and updating, the wi-fi is a bit flaky and we noticed that the toilet's cleaning materials were left out loose (we've been told that this has been sorted after our departure, so shouldn't be a point now!). However the house for us was very clean and tidy with cutlery, cooking utensils, towels and blankets, even local takeaway menus.
Seunghee saw to our every need. She is extremely conscientious and thoughtful towards her guests, writing out a list of local areas to visit off the beaten path and even baked us a home made chocolate cake (exquisite). We had a huge problem with the hot water and Seunghee went out of her way to make sure we looked after whilst it was being fixed, so we haven't a single complaint about how it was handled and it did not spoil our holiday.
The need for some investment and attention to the house is the only reason we haven't rated this a five. But in just about every other aspect this house is a real gem. It is EXCELLENT value, an ideal location, perfect size for couples, even has a zoo within walking distance but most of all is Seunghee - she is an excellent hostess.
Thank you so much for your review. I only hope I made your holiday special enough. I believe holiday is an important moment of our life to make some decisive turns. I wish this compound will be a respite place to make it all positive. I only wish you experienced that here.
You mentioned TLC in the house- I wish you meant it by the water I sorted whilst you were here and cleaning products for which I got the trunket for. Thank you again for lovely review and really look forward to seeing you here again. All the best to your family!

"Sorry but cannot recommend this cottage"
There was no friendly greeting from the owner when we arrived, just a quick "the door is open and key on the side" as she was going out. The owners home is extremely close to the cottage whi… More
I am sorry to be informed that you have had a poor experience at my cottage.
Strawberry Mill does share the grounds with our (owner's) house, but it does have its own separate compound. I wish you were not misled by the description. I strive to provide the best comfort for my guests, including their privacy.
I always give my mobile telephone number in the confirmation email and the Welcome Book. I have indicated to contact me if you need any help in the cottage. I cannot predict when guests will arrive. I have a young family and it is often too late to visit guests after putting the children to sleep. If this is the case, I do endeavor to meet my guests the following day.
Before guests arrive, the thermostat in the cottage is set at 19 degrees. The lights are regularly checked, including the wall lights and the fire light. I can confirm that the hot water, light bulbs and electrical heater element are all working since you left here in March, eight months ago. I want to stress that the heating thermostat is within the cottage and at the control of guests, not me.
I wished you had informed me of any issues, so that I could have helped you to enjoy the comfort already provided in the cottage.
As previously reviewed by many other customers, the house is warm, comfortable and private and I take pride in providing excellent service.
Although I am upset and disappointed by your remarks, I do respond to feedback and work hard towards continuously improving my guest's experience in the cottage. I do sincerely hope that you will visit us again.

Thank you very much for your review. I wished you could use the linen chest (downstair) and babycot (upstair) to block the stair. However, you mentioned you still enjoyed the comfort and view from the house which was lovely. I wished to see you soon here.
