They provided a welcome tray of bread, spread, milk, wine and Welsh cakes, which was a very welcome touch. The cottage was beautiful. Very well designed and modern in style, yet retaining its character and charm. The garden was fully enclosed, making it very dog friendly. We self catered most of the week and the cottage had all the cooking utensils we needed. The mattress on the double bed was very comfortable and the bed was made with lovely soft, high quality sheets. The location was ideal. On the high street, but at the quiet end and near to the excellent Berwyn arms. There are also footpaths opposite the cottage that lead onto the Berwyn Mountains. A perfect place for a quiet, relaxing break (very little mobile phone reception to disturb your holiday!). Highly recommended.
