About Mr and Mrs Kristian
Carol & Martin Kristian have a long association with this spectacular part of Wales, and love it. Carol has spent holidays in Tywyn since the age of 3 and her parents retired here in the 80's, creating a home from home for all the family. Martin,who is Australian, of Latvian parents, was soon introduced to the area by Carol and immediately fell in love with it. We live in Herfordshire but visit our cottages at least once a month. Martin is recently retired from his business and Carol still runs a childrens theatre school. We love nature and are very lucky to have a like minded wonderful team of local people on hand to ensure your stay is pleasant. We enjoy meeting our guests whenever possible and sharing our corner of heaven with you.
Mr and Mrs Kristian purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Mr and Mrs Kristian chose Llangelynin
Carol's parents sold their wonderful property and relocated back to Hertfordshire in old age. Suffering pangs of loss we visited the area and drove over the mountain. It was a beautiful September day and cruising downhill towards the sea the views ahead became breath taking and we both agreed that it would be lovely to have a holiday home of our own somewhere like this. We passed Craig faden and on reaching the main road at Rhoslefain to our amazement saw a 'For Sale' sign. Dashed to the estate agent and within a few hours the deal was done! Paradise and peace perfect peace,.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottages have a cosy homely feel to them and day or night the views are wonderful with the lights of Tywyn and the local farms twinkling on the mountainside all around. Walkers can enjoy walks from the door leaving the car behind. The night skies are magical.

All great. Loved the stay .BUT!?
Great scenery. Nice layout. Good space and good neighbours.
Points that need improvement:
Toilet does not flush properly so its very time consuming to do your business.
And the Carol -management did not pick up the phone so took us nearly 2 hours to find the house because postcode was wrong...
And we could not find any wifi there which in our case was an advantage really.
I would recommend this because its what we wanted.-to be away from everyone and relax.
Thank you for your review so pleased that you enjoyed the location, cottage and peace and quiet.
I am so sorry that you had difficulty finding Craig Faden I sent you directions on 27 March perhaps they went into your trash. I am also sorry to hear that you called me and I did nt pick up most unusual for me my phone is almost welded to me. Wi fi I was not made aware of any problem from the people in the opposite cottage nor subsequent guests so again can' t answer this but will certainly look into it. We pay a high rice for the satellite connection here. I am glad to hear that you were nt inconvenienced.
Please come again now you know the way!!
Very peaceful surrounded by beautiful scenery...definitely a place if you're looking for a relaxing
Property good with views of the rolling hills and sea beyond...sunsets were stunning.
Inside the cottage was clean and warm however if you want to stay in touch with the outside world it's very difficult internet non existent and phone signal very very poor but if that's not important then this is an ideal place to get away from it all and explore the beautiful country Wales has on offer
So glad you loved the cottage and location. This part of Wales is so beautiful and no better spot to stay to appreciate it.
Phone signals are not great except vodaphone which is good. However wi fi is normally fine sorry you had a poor experience. The provider tells us that they have strengthened the signal and subsequent guests seem to have had a good service. We look forward to seeing you again.
simple and cozy Snowdonian retreat
Great place to explore the south of Snowdonia, with easy access to the beaches, Aberdyfi and Cader Idris. Cottage is simple but totally sufficient, fireplace works well; wifi is spotty but who needs wifi out here. Cottage interior is slightly worn, but spotlessly clean and very practical. Carol was very responsive and gave fantastic tips to the area. Felt very welcome. Highly recommend.
Thank you for your kind comments. So glad that you found the cottage cosy and clean if a little well worn due to its popularity.
We hope to see you again.

Carol and Marty
A lovely character cottage that has a homely feel. The surrounding views are just stunning .The roaming sheep and walks were relaxing and if you want to get away from it all this is the place to stay!
Thank you for your kind comments we are delighted to hear how much you were able to relax and enjoy the environment as well as the cottage.
