Very comfortable stay in a convenient location for our holiday plans. Very well kitted home, with all the amenities we could need and more. Louise was lovely and helpful and made sure we had everything we need.

What a lovely spot to find. Central to everything, yet quiet and relaxing. Visited Portmeirion, Caernarfon Castle, Sygun Copper Mine and waked up Snowdon. A great time had by all.

A much needed relaxing holiday in a beautiful convenient location. We had absolutely everything here we could have needed. Very cosy. Portmeirion was a must for us. It was stunning. Great holiday - thank you!
