It really was a lovely place to stay so comfortable and very very clean everything was spot on and the Hosts Eriain and Ian were so friendly. The views are really wonderful from the cottage window and even better from the field. we only stayed four days and there's so much to do and see in the local area we didn't even touch on most things. we have stayed in many cottages and this must rate as one of the best for an all round package.I would advise anyone staying in north wales to stay here. we will diffo return

"They made us so welcome."

We had a lovely few days in North Wales, and Eithin Bach was an ideal base for Caernarfon, Snowdonia and some lesser-known corners. The cottage is well-laid-out and seemed to lack nothing - plenty of space for two and easily enough for a family as well, I'd think. All modern appliances, superb bathroon and comfortable bed. And Eirian and Ian couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. We'll definitely be going again.

"A warm & friendly welcome awaits at this comfortable cottage"

We have stayed at Eithin Bach on several occasions and have never been disappointed. Eirian & Ian and their 2 lovely boys are very welcoming and always helpful - nothing is too much bother. The cottage is very clean & comfortable and well positioned to enjoy the spectacular scenery and places of interest that this beautiful area has to offer. You can choose to walk, cycle, travel by steam train or car, all routes are easily accessible. We would not hesitate in recommending this lovely cottage.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The cottage is beautifully furnished, warm and homely with everything you could need. The host was so friendly and always there to help if we needed anything at all. The surrounding area is gorgeous and we had such a relaxing stay.

"Lovely cottage in beautiful location"

Retired husband and wife accompanied by Australian relative. The cottage was lovely and had everything we could have wanted.
We toured much of the countryside of North Wales, including Snowdon, Menai Straits and much of Anglesey. The owners gave useful advice inluding where to eat in the evenings.
We had an excellent short break holiday, and our Australian companion was thrilled with the wonders of North Wales.
We would love to return.
