If you want a fantastic little cottage in a quite location surrounded by stunning mountains book this.
I admit in estate agent terms it could do with moderistion, but everything works. If you don't want to go for the log burner ( who wouldn't? ) there are enough heaters to melt the ozone! Its not like staying in the typical cut out holiday rental. More like someone's home. There is no TV and the phone/internet signal doesn't exist, at least not with my provider. But that didn't matter, there's a stereo, with a record player! And CD player , there's also a selection of CDs and books on the shelves. I added to the collection while I was there.
The cottage was very rustic and in Awesome location, great value for money. Really close to the downhill trails at anter stiniog and bounce bellow we had an amazing weekend
We have stayed at many holiday rental cottages in several countries and are used to handling a wide variety of appliances and property idiosyncrasies. However, this is the first time we have had to leave a property and find alternative accommodation because of unusable equipment, namely the hot water servicing the shower. The hot water for the kitchen sink, the bathroom vanity and the shower are all heated by a dial operated appliance which heats the water as you use it. The appliances for the kitchen sink and bathroom vanity worked but the shower would not run hot water over two days of trying, following the written instructions carefully. The next-door neighbour acts as a key holder and adviser for the property and she also made several attempts to operate the shower, to no avail. She told us that the owner had been having trouble with the appliance in recent times. She contacted an electrician who lives a few doors away to see if he could help but he couldn't come until the day we were to leave the cottage. After two days without a shower, we decided to move out.
Initially the cottage owner was apologetic and offered us a refund but later reneged on this and only refunded our deposit as he claimed the shower was working normally. The cottage is not well maintained generally and we feel that this shower dial is at best temperamental, or at worst, faulty and should be replaced.
