welcome break

5 of 5
The area is outstanding and the local village of Fairbourne is a really nice walk in the evening passed the toll house and the people we met were really friendly. We visited the Indiana Cuisine and the food was exceptional and Raj was a perfect host My wife usually has a problem as she is a vegetarian but not this time... visited the blue lake and views were worth the trek ...cottage was really cosy and just the break we needed

Lovely cottage and a perfect retreat.

5 of 5
What a great cottage in a lovely little village. We stayed in march the weather was grim but what made the long walk out and our attempt at snowdon more rewarding was knowing that we had this cosy cottage to come back to and relaxe in in front of the log burner. And also as an added bonus the eagles pub next door is ideal and offer a warm welcome and serve a great pint. I would advise to book to eat on a Saturday night or for Sunday lunch. We ate there for Sunday lunch and what great value it is. We have already recommended to others with dogs that this cottage is perfect with the enclosed garden for them to roam. Thank you Paul we hade a fantastic stay. Richard & Rachael

Wonderful!

4 of 5
Would have been 5* but for the fact that the front bedroom could do with some curtains in addition to the blinds. This quirky property has been wonderfully restored, with quality furnishings and the kitchen has everything you could need, very well equipped. The shower room was an experience in itself, very luxurious. Small issue on our arrival with the key code, but a quick call to the owner soon resolved this. We'd love to know more about the history of the building. It is set in a fantastic location overlooking the harbour, and is a great central location for sightseeing. We will definitely be checking availability for a return visit when we are next in the area!!!!! Don't think too long and hard about booking this, just book it!!!! :)
