Nice, comfortable house that just needs a few tweaks

  • 3 of 5

The house was large (despite looking tiny from the front!), comfortable and well equipped. The owners were helpful and responsive when we had a problem.

The two negatives are

- uncomfortable beds, the mattresses were really cheap and simply putting toppers on wasn't enough.

- paper-thin curtains, particularly in the children's room. We were lucky to have brilliant sunny weather but that just meant it was far too light in the bedrooms when trying to put children to sleep and that we all woke up at 5am!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Tremadog, great location for exploring Snowdonia. The cottage is a minute's walk from a lovely pub / restaurant which is needed after a busy day !. Highly recommend.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 nights in the cottage which was spacious and homely. Excellent communication with owners, who were quick to respond. As it was March the heating was put on for our arrival, a very nice touch. Great location, pub / restaurant 1 minute walk. We will definitely be going back.

Booked a weekend to celebrate my 50th, 5 ladies. Great communication with the owners.

A lovely cottage, tiny on the outside, lovely and spacious on the inside, a tardis! Great location, lots of things to do within easy reach. Stayed in on the first night, cottage was chilly on arrival but didn't take long to get warm, very cozy. The double bed was really comfortable, would suggest mattress toppers and extra pillows for the other beds. Also more serving plates/bowls in the kitchen.

Walked up two mountains the next day then a meal in one of the two welcoming pubs, had a drink in the other one. Lovely village which also has a shop.

Visited Plas Brondanw gardens, what a hidden gem! Don't miss it!

So all in all a lovely stay, would definitely go again, only for longer!

Great cottage in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was lovely and much larger than we expected. It had everything we needed, was clean and homely. Location is ideal for the Coast, mount Snowdon and although in a rural location was close to shops and restaurants. It was perfect for our family.
