Although an old property, formally a part of the village hotel, it has been very thoughtfully modernised and decorated to the highest of standards. The village itself is quiet but I can recommend a visit to the David Lloyd-George museum and The Feathers pub. Cricceith is a pleasant walk away along the coastal path which has some fantastic views and here you will find the famous ice-cream shop and popular fish and chip establishment. Go on a Thursday evening at 6.15pm to see the lifeboat and its crew go out on training. The cottage is a great base to travel in all directions within the Smowdonia National Park and lovely to return to each evening. Books, games and puzzles are in plentiful supply and the welcome goodies were a very thoughtful extra provided by the accommodating owner. We are already planning a return visit in the not too distant future, perhaps a little later in the year when we will be able to enjoy sitting in the garden at the rear of the property on balmy evenings.

The location is great, and although it's up a long hill road, the view from the upstairs bedroom in particular justifies it's position. The cottage is really well-equipped, with everything we needed to enjoy our girly weekend away. We particularly enjoyed popping down the hill to Dylan's for some cocktails!

Jane is extremely organised and welcoming and the house is spacious and very well furnished. The town has several restaurants, pubs and cafes along with an excellent fish and chip shop and ice-cream parlour. I would recommend the property to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday.
