I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone. It's beautiful, clean and cosy. Jacqui provided clear instructions for how to get to the cottage and useful information on the cottage and area. We travelled from London for the weekend and it was a great base. Wish we'd stayed longer. 10 out of 10! Christian

Management response:

Thank you so much for the lovely review, its a long way from London, through summer your sat nav would take you over the mountains to get there and its breathtaking, winter and night its best to travel the main roads ... hope that you come again to see those mountains regards Jacqui

We booked Cenfaes Cottage for a weekend visit to see friends in Bala, and Jacqui couldn't have been more helpful before we arrived. It was easy to find and lovely and warm when we walked through the door (something that can't be underestimated in the middle of a Welsh winter!) The photos online really don't do this lovely little cottage...

Management response:

This really means a lot to our family, Its so exciting when people see and love the same things that we do... and thank you for leaving the cottage as you found it, Cenfaes in Summer with Barmouth 40 minutes away and the sun pouring down ( yes sun) onto the patio at the back adds another dimension, I hope...
