“Perfect For All Attractions” "Hengoed Cottage" is the TARDIS of the self catering Cottages from the outside it looks very inviting with the timber Decking area to have your drinks on a sunny day or evening. What took us by surprise was how well the cottage is equipped, you would be hard pressed to find anything that you needed in the kitchen or other wise that was not catered for. Our 6yr old Grandson was pleased to find his bedroom had two beds one for him and one for his friends Micky Mouse, Poo bear and his giant Dopey the Dwarf and Wifi for his ipad. If you wanted to use the bus service Arriva (bus stop at the end of the road) Arriva do a ticket for all day travel for £3:90pp with your freedom pass which we used to great effect. We would not hesitate to return or recommend to others.
“Cosy cottage not too far off the beaten track.” Picked this location to explore the many beaches to the North of the island. It was perfect for that and coming "home" in the evening to light the fire was a real treat. This cottage is well equipped and has all you would need in your home from home.
“Fantastic stay” Lovely cottage, found clean & tidy on arrival. Very spacious for the five of us, 3 adults, 2 children & our dog. Had everything we needed, wifi a bonus. Amazing views to wake up to every morning, enough parking space for both cars and the green area across the road through a small gate was great for taking the dog for walks, leads to a little beach too. Short walk into Barmouth with lots of places to eat and drink, shops, amusements and a fair for the kids and beautiful beaches, also a co-op to do a bit of shopping. Would recommend Harlech for a drive out. Overall a great holiday and would stay at this cottage again if we return to Barmouth anytime.
“Excellent comfortable,cosy & quiet accomodation in a beautiful area of South Wales” The cottage is excellent. It is very modern, well equipped and very suitable to travelling couples although it will accommodate up to 4 people. It is situated in a quiet residential area of Mumbles with no more than a 5-10 minute stroll to the huge Swansea Bay.
The cottage is a completely separate part of the owners Chris and Sarah's property who may I add were superb hosts for which nothing was too much trouble.
One of the reasons we chose Riversdale Cottage was its actual location and we were richly rewarded.. It is ideally situated to explore the absolutely delightful Gower Peninsula with its beautiful coastline & beaches. There are also a number of beautiful country parks nearby i.e Clyne Valley, Gnoll, Margam and Afan Forest. Should you wish to venture a little further than why not try the Brecon Beacons or the delightful Tenby.
I have no reservation at all in recommending Riversdale Cottage and although we never usually return to the same area or holiday accommodation we may make an exception with Riversdale Cottage and the Gower.
Thanks once again to Chris and Sarah for their hospitality.
“Stunning location, cosy cottages.” We have stayed at both The Stable and The Dairy, the latter was May 2011 and we stayed at The Stable in May 2008. Both cottages are extremely cosy and comfortable and in an absolutely stunning location. I really felt the need to add a review after reading the last awful comment left by the family who stayed in August 2011. I'm totally shocked that they could describe such a beautiful place in such a negative way. I have read the guest books in each cottage and I can honestly say there wasn't one bad comment and guests seem to return again and again, so that says it all! So to sum things up in short, Angle beach is CLEAN, safe and just 2 minutes walk. There are stunning coastal walks, one we did was to Freshwater West beach, amazing views of sea and countryside (not industrial), oh there may be slight glimpses of BP Milford Haven, but that's more mystical in a funny way than ugly. The cottages themselves are well equipped and cosy, a lovely base to go back to after a great day out in this fantastic area. Last point to mention, you don't have to go all the way to Pembroke dock to shop, there's a perfectly good Co-op in the beautiful medieval town of Pembroke, which is 10-15 minutes drive.
“Honeymoon break” Getting married in Feb we decided to book a UK stay as we have a baby and wanted to avoid any long haul flights, we booked this accommodation and we couldn't have done better!
Lovely, well maintained and well provisioned property, with charming hosts who were incredibly helpful. The view out over the valleys is stunning and the hot tub was a perfect place to unwind after a busy day.
The location itself is perfect, halfway between Chester (And the nearby shopping outlet!) and we also ventured down to Conwy and Llandudno which are both charming little places. Plenty to do and see nearby and we are already thinking of coming back for another visit, and have recommended it to several of our family!
“Brilliant house- highly recommended” Our second visit to Conwy Lodge was as great as the first. Lovely and clean on arrival with tea, coffee, biscuits and milk. Good quality towels and bedding provided. Lovely enclosed garden- safe for toddlers and we got to use the garden furniture this year!!
Surrounded by a field which this year contained cows- makes you feel like you're in the countryside when in fact you are less than 10 minutes drive to both beaches and all shops.
We had an issue with the electricity on Sunday evening which was very swiftly rectified by Mark from the management team.
Very pleased again with our visit here and hope we can return 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.
“So impressed and happy we've already booked 2018!!!!” Absolutely delightful property and location. Superbly finished with all facilities and amenities required for a break. Short stroll to the beach, shops, and all local dog friendly hostelries. Debbie, the host, is quick to reply and extremely helpful with all necessary details and information for the property and also the local area for places to see and visit.
“Perfect location” The location is superb with both beach and coastal path within minutes of the cottage door, the cottage is a peaceful retreat at the end of a day's walking around the islands many stunning places.
“Excellent property in a beautiful location” We have just returned from a fabulous week staying at this lovely property. It is very comfortable and everything you could wish for is provided. The garden and seating area were fully used as the sun shone for the whole week and the view from the garden over the sea to the mountains of Snowdonia was spectacular. You can relax immediately. The agents only being next door was very good and they are both really friendly and helpful. I can recommend the fish and chip shop and Anns Pantry in Moelfre as well as The Old Boathouse at Red Wharf Bay if you want a break from cooking. Hope to be back next year.
“Lovely little place” Easy to find stable conversion away from the main road but within easy reach of shops and restaurants. Coed Stable has been tastefully converted to a very high standard, fully furnished and very well equipped, very comfortable. It was lovely just to sit in the courtyard in the evening watching the sunset over Cader Idris. We used this as our base for 4 days, visiting Harlech, Porthmodog, tallylyn railway. Cross foxes is the local pub which does good food. Nearby Dolgellau has some nice restaurants
“cosy, comfortable, full of character” Pencraig is a wonderful, get away from it all holiday cottage. It's well equipped, cosy and has a wealth of books, games and art to keep you amused inside, plus there are two tables to sit at outside. It's situated in an ideal position - halfway between two beaches, with the spectacular coastal path to walk between them. Both the village stores (which has won awards for being so friendly and helpful) and the garage are great places to shop - try their honey and spelt bread and the local organic cheese. The Preseli hills are a great place for food - try and get some of the local honey if you can, it smells of freshly mown grass and gorse flowers. Wherever you go, there is something to discover and this being Wales, everyone is friendly and helpful. Mike, the cottage owner, is very helpful and an extremely interesting person. We had a fantastic week here!
“If you want comfort combined with stunning scenery choose Clare'” Clare's Cottage is one of the most comfortable cottages we have ever stayed in. There is everything you could possibly need at the cottage. Definitely a home from home. The owner is extremely helpful and accommodating. The scenery surrounding the cottage is stunning. The garden is superb. We were fortunate to be there while the autumn colours were at their best. Wonderful comfortable beds, very well equipped kitchen. Would highly recommend this cottage.
“Stunning cottage” A beautiful cottage tucked away, everything you could need, it was like home from home. We stayed for 4 nights, and enjoyed exploring the Island making memories. All questions were answered straight away and upon arrival we were greeted with a lovely gift hamper and a bottle of milk. We will definitely be returning.
“Beautiful cottage in quiet surroundings but a very short distance from Abersoch” Lovely little cottage less than 10 mins drive for Abersoch, very well equipped and very nicely finished off. Just perfect for a family of 4 to use as a base for a beach holiday. Couldn't fault it, lovely big bathroom and 2 really nice bedrooms.
“Excellent Location with superb views” 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.
“Cosy, compact, quirky, very near to Three Cliffs Bay and has everything you need!” The holiday cottage is just as outlined in the description, based in a lane where other similarly quirky chalet-style buildings are situated. There are lots of lovely touches which makes it very homely and the owners have thought of everything so it is well-equipped. Five adults and a golden retriever stayed for 4 nights. The kitchen is quite compact which meant it wasn't easy if we all tried to be in there at the same time. It wasn't quite warm enough to spill out on to the patio area - which would actually be a lovely place to have breakfast and BBQs if the weather had been better.
The owner isn't based locally but was able to sort out some initial hiccups that we came across when we arrived and we appreciated the fast and proactive response.
All in all, a lovely, relaxing stay away from the hubbub of town life!
“Cosy comfortable cottage surrounded by big skies and amazing beaches” We spent a week at the quaint rural Coach House cottage and loved it. Set in beautiful countryside the Coach House is set amongst about 5 other cottages but it's laid out perfectly to ensure you have privacy as well. Terry and Steph who own the property are lovely people who have gone out their way to make sure the cottage is really comfortable. You can even see the sea from the living room window. It has a fully enclosed garden which was great for our dogs. They loved it! As the owners also have dogs they know what dog owners are looking for and it makes all the difference.
The whole area is surrounded by amazing beaches. Our favourite was the whistling sands and it has a lovely wee cafe on the beach.
At night because there is absolutely no light pollution you get an amazing view of the stars. That coupled with the fact the only noise you can hear is the occasional BAA from a sheep it is a place of absolute peace! Simply stunning.
The nearest beach is about 1 mile away and its a an enjoyable walk down.
The nearest shop (very small shop) is about 6 miles away. Spar is 9 miles way. So make sure you bring enough wine with you!
There isn't any wifi and we had no service for our phones which might not suit everyone but as we wanted a complete 'Get away from it all' it ticked every box and more.
