Relaxing get away. Just what we needed
Relaxing and cosy. Brilliant garden
Comfortable, beautiful, welcoming and dog friendly
We had a very happy week at Derwen Cottage. The aga and woodburner kept us really cosy, and the whole cottage was very comfortable and very well equipped. We loved the quirky and eclectic design and styling that has clearly benefited from a lot of care and attention to detail. In spite of being right next door to owners home the cottage felt completely private. Having said that Mari was at hand when extra fuel was needed. We were welcomed with a bottle of v nice wine, Christmas cake, mince pies, fresh fruit and flowers and a Christmas tree. Oh and Christmas crackers! We had a lovely new years eve and just stayed in a lot during the week we were there, just reading and snoozing in front of the fire! When we ventured out we loved walking the Miners Track up Snowdon and the amazing Cwm Idwal circular route. Black Rock Sands was also stunning. Being able to have our dog stay with us to enjoy it all made it a perfect home from home for us.
Glad you enjoyed the wine,cake and flowers. Thank you for the lovely review.
