Fantastic location, excellent hosts and superb accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant week, the cottage is excellent both inside and out, the gardens are amazing. We had breakfast at the patio table each morning listening to the birds singing and the odd Red Kite flying overhead. Guy and Jenny are excellent hosts, always happy to have a chat but not intrusive in any way. The off-road parking is a big plus. Excellent base for exploring the area, just a few hundred yards from joining Glyndŵr's Way if you like walking. The Cann Office hotel in the village serves very tasty food and has a good selection of beers, we always received a nice welcome there. Lake Vyrnwy and Powis Castle and Gardens are within a 30 minute drive and you can drive to Barmouth on the coast in about 50 minutes. I would definitely recommend this to anyone loooking to holiday in the area.

The cottage is a wonderful place to spend a holiday - beautifully presented, the space is used so cleverly planned that it feels much bigger but still has a lovely homely feel. There's everything you could need and the setting is so peaceful. The gardens are stunning and there are so many great places to visit in under an hour. Guy and Jen (& Bob) made us feel very welcome and I could happily have stayed forever!

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

We both enjoyed our stay at the quiet cottage in llandagfan. The hosts, Guy and Jennie, couldn't be more helpful and more hospitable.

It's a great base to explore Wales and further afield.

If you're thinking about booking definitely do!

There is a famous shrine to St Melangell in a church hidden in a most heavenly valley nearby. This is close to the highest waterfall in Wales; the Pistyll Rhaeadr.

For those needing to unwind, there is a Harmony holistic therapy center just a few miles across the valley.
