“Cannot fault anything”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in October 2021

We have just come back from staying in Shepherds cottage for a long weekend. There’s everything you need and more. First place we have been to that are REALLY dog friendly and even think of our dogs. The hot tub was a bonus after a day out and come back and relax. Lovely welcome pack. Beautiful surroundings and the garden is private. There’s a games room and a lively sun room to sit and look over the River Dee. We will definitely be back

“A birthday treat”
Reviewed 20 November 2020 for a stay in November 2020

Having had to cancel a villa break in Lanzarote due to Covid19, we decided very last minute to book something closer to home for my birthday. We stumbled across Rivercatcher and decided to give it a try. We were delighted with everything, the service, the accommodation and the site. Andy was very helpful and even gave us an early check in and late check out. Aled who was always on site, was very helpful. He cleaned the hot tub every day and topped up our wood supplies and we didn't even know he had been most of the time. The cottage itself was great. The beds were extremely comfortable, as was the living room furniture. The decor and fixtures and fittings were very high quality and there was everything you could need. The site itself was immaculate and the views absolutely stunning. We were both completely relaxed and had such a lovely time. One very minor thing is that it would have been good to have control of the heating, as we wanted to light the wood burner every night. Also, we like a cool bedroom and it was quite warm. This is a very minor thing though and did not spoil our trip in any way. All in all this was a fantastic trip and we can't wait to go back

Stunning cottage, surrounding, furnishings, staff, amenities, just everything about Rivercatcher cottages was of incredibly high standard. Impeccably clean with extra cleaning measures put in place for COVID-19. I must admit we did take our own pillows, but we do anyway when we go away. We couldn't fault it, we had a lovely welcome pack, all towels and robes provided, cleaning products, washing up liquid, cloths, t towels dishwasher tabs included. We had lovely high end toiletries in both bathrooms with toilet rolls provided. Samsung Tvs in the lounge and both bedrooms room with Netflix installed, the WiFi was even pretty good, we did lose reception a few times but didn't cause a problem at all. As walkers we climbed Snowdon, visited a beautiful Waterfall,walked into the village of. Llandrillo which took 10 mins, and went to The dudley arms. Its only open at the moment Thurs-Sun with a limited menu, but it was delicious. Very friendly staff and we felt safe as far as COVID-19 was concerned. Would definately go back to Rivercatcher, thank you so Andy and team, all so so polite, friendly and helpful.

This stunning secluded setting provides a perfect get away. The standard of Shepherds cottage was exemplary with all the added extras a real treat. The staff, site and amenities also brilliant. We particularly enjoyed the hot-tub, net-flicks availability and the dog friendly site.

Lovely location and cottage done to an amazing standard . We especially loved the hot tub , under floor heating , Netflix and the treat of having a tv in each bedroom (went down very well our teenage daughter). The Welcome Basket was a lovely treat and Alid was very helpful and friendly with a great local knowledge. We’ll be back.
