The owners were really helpful and made us feel welcomed during our stay. The cottage is quite cute and has all the essentials provided during the stay. If visiting wales, its a must place to stay in.

Snowdonia is only a short drive away, Abersoch & Black Rock Sands are within easy reach. The Accommodation was lovely, small & cosy cottage, loved all the features & fittings, our little dog Ellie loved the lake! The owners were incredibly welcoming & were always around if we needed them. Great Dog Friendly Holiday - Will be recommending to everyone & will hopefully return! Many Thanks Laura Barlow

It did not disappoint us-the views were lovely and the surroundings were surprisingly quiet considering it was school holiday time. We had pre-booked our favourite Restaurants as it is always busy this time of year. We managed a visit to Mona car boot sale but the weather did not hold out for long-it rained!! Good Broadband access and plenty to view on the tv if it rains-or should I say when it rains! This holiday always helps me unwind and we always sleep well in the back bedroom in single beds. We visited Black Rock Sands-you can drive down onto a lovely sandy beach, Harlech beach is beautiful and hardly anyone is on it-just how we like it. We will keep Casula in mind for the future as it really is a home from home.
