They were happy to fit everything around us. We had a great stay and will hopefully come back one day. Thanks

The area is very quiet and relaxing, there's a lovely enclosed private garden at the back, perfect for bird watching. The hosts were very friendly and left us to it. We had everything we needed, place was spotless, couldn't fault it at all. If you're looking for a nice relaxing getaway this is the place for you!

It was a brilliant base for us and we were out everyday exploring North Wales and it was lovely to come home everyday to River Cottage, light the fire and have some nice food. We will hopefully be returning next year as we loved it so much!
