“Cartref cottage,Bala”

Reviewed 27 Jun 2017

We enjoyed the stay to this cottage during our holiday in North Wales. The location is perfect if you want to tour North Wales as it is very central. The owners are friendly and they made as feel welcome ;and the actual cottage was clean and comfortable, and child friendly.If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing place, Cartref cottage it's your pick. Thank you Andrew and Family.

“Untidy - outdated”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2016

As mentioned before in the reviews, the property looks different as presented on pictures, than the actual situation. The cottage wasn't very clean, the beds where terrible....didn't have a decent sleep for 2 weeks. A poorly placed central heating radiator made it impossible to sit properly on the toilet. The outside sitting area was in full few of the kitchen window from the property owner, so there wasn't the slightest bit off privacy. And the cottage needs some sort of mechanical ventilation system to suck out the moist air, while cooking and showering. The owner of the cottage was very helpful if you needed any information. The location was also very positive, right in the middle of north Wales. There where a lot of things to do in an one hours driving circle around Bala. So the conclusion of this holiday is that the cottage would benefit from a upgrade and is in desperate need of some new bedding.

Owner's reply: Many thanks fotocyclus for your review- we have been able to respond to your comments over the winter period. This includes installing new double glazed windows, new beds /mattresses and bedding, new mechanical extractor fan in kitchen and a general upgrade including re-decorating / soft furnishings etc. A trellis partition has been set up to provide some privacy from the main house .The electric meter has been removed so all electrical and heating costs are included.

“Perfect cottage for couples”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2013

This lovely little cottage is perfect for couples. It's in a great location for exploring Wales. There are plenty of leaflets to help you decide where to go. The cottage is situated just outside the town of Bala where there are two supermarkets and plenty of pubs and restaurants. The lake is lovely and we had a great barbecue there one sunny evening. The cottage has an adequate kitchen area and a lounge area. The bedroom is large with a double and single bed and has views out over the beautiful garden. We found the bed a bit too hard but others might like that. The bathroom is perfectly adequate with a shower, sink and loo. We loved the decking area outside the cottage and had our breakfasts and evening meals there when the weather allowed. The owners are lovely and leave you alone but are on hand if needed. This is a basic cottage with everything you need in a lovely location and is great value for money. Best suited to couples or a family with just one child.

“Excellent Location with superb views”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2012

Very tidy cottage with all amenities. Owners very friendly and non-intrusive. Quiet location not far from Bala Lake. Would recommend this cottage to friends and family.
