Had a great week here with 2 young children last Autumn. Fantastic location and setting, and so much to do locally. We didnt use the car for 4 days! Warm, cosy cottage - lovely wood burner in the lounge, sweet private garden and the use of the owners bigger garden space next door too! The cottage even had comfortable beds! Great hosts - very welcoming and helpful. 5*.

A beautiful period Welsh cottage with gorgeous gardens. Perfect for families with dogs, it is owned by the nicest and most obliging couple, Sheena and Ian, who know the area very well and suggested some beautiful walks nearby. This is our second visit here and both times have been perfect. The cottage has everything you need and is always kept so clean! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who wants to explore the surrounding area of Snowdonia at it's best.

Stayed last week in August 2012 as last minute booking, mix of weather but location brilliant for beach and mountains etc.
Shame we could not make the most out of the gardens due to the weather.
Lots of DVDs and freeview tv for the evenings when it rained though.
Fantastic waterfall just across the road.
There was myself, wife and two children, 7 and 10 and our two dogs and there are some fantastic walks very close to cottage, and some fantastic beaches within circa 12miles. Recommend Black Rock and Harloch.
Bedgelert and other touristy locations all close enough to enjoy without having to drive for hours.
Shame the Ffestiniog train was so expensive though as we walked to nearest station - about a mile - and it was £45.00 return for us all just to Portmadog then another £70.00 to Carnarfon.
A lovely couple and children who made us feel welcome. Thanks for letting our children use your zip wire and trampoline.
Was worried our children might find it boring and compact but they had a great time as did our dogs.
Would recommend to any one as great value for money, in a lovely old cottage.
Only thing i missed was a local pub but did find a nice Hotel / pub called the Oaklands within driving distance, just a bit too far to walk.
Thanks Oliver and Sheena for a lovely week.
