We are so glad you enjoyed the house and views. It is good that you had no queues for the loos and bathrooms. We try to improve the plumbing each year to ensure plenty of hot water for large groups. Also there is a plan to add 2 more bathrooms as well. Thanks for mentioning the bedrooms being pretty and comfortable. Each year we add another antique or painting of a local artist. Yes that AGA cooker will go on forever as a useful extra heat source. We very much look forward to you and your group coming back sometime.

Thank you for your review and coming back each year. It is good to have you in the calendar for next year as well already. I am glad that you like the new kitchen arrangement and the new granite countertop. Also it makes me happy that as well as the cooking range you can enjoy the Aga cooker again as an extra place to cook . It is lovely spring weather just now with so many flowers bursting out in the garden and the pink thrift on the coast walks.It is good that you have found the tranquility and a way to not use the car when there. Certainly more people come by bus and get dropped at the driveway, and with trains coming to Fishguard now it helps. The local footpaths from the house to the coast and mountain continue to be source of pleasure. The local wholefood shop makes house deliveries as well as Tesco's. Another great caterer is setting up locally too. Welcome back next year to enjoy it all. There will be ongoing improvements that I hope that your family will appreciate as well.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a complimentary review about the cottage, we are so glad that you enjoyed yourselves and had everything you needed. Blaenau Ffestiniog has a rich industrial heritage based around slate extraction and, being centrally-located, is a perfect jumping off spot for the many local sights and attractions in the Snowdonia National Park. We are so sorry that you didn't discover the local bars and pubs in the town, Cell B in particular is an absolute gem and is only 5 minutes' walk from the cottage. If you decide to return we shall have to introduce you to the local night life!

Thank you for coming and taking the time to write a review. I am so very pleased that you have had such a great time and plan to return. In this case, I can offer you a 10% discount if you book 6 months or more ahead to time. It is helpful that you share how clean and child friendly it is. We are working on continually improving these things and we are adding a collection of items as well as toys for children. Many guests do walk to the beach and the town and find those lovely estuary walks to enjoy on the way.Thanks for mentioning the distance is short. However, it is also nice being out of the town to enjoy the privacy and quiet as well.
