“Lovely, cosy stay.”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed for two nights and loved it. Such a cosy, quirky little place. Amazing views across the valley.
There was everything we needed to eat in and a bunch of board games to play.
We had a super time.

“Comfortable Retreat Perfect for Couples”
Reviewed 26 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights and we had a great time! We came to climb Snowdon but found so much more in the area, its a beautiful place to stay especially if you love to walk!
We loved the location and the peace we found staying in this beautiful little hut. The bed was comfortable and the space was just enough for the two of us, the added wet room and porch made it feel huge!
Snowdon was a great walk but there is so much more to the area, Portmerrion is around 45 mins away and there are plenty of outdoor activities around.

Tip for food is a new pizza place in the town called Hang in there pizza, very good pizza!

Thank you to Catherine for a lovely short break, we will be back for sure!

“Cosy, beautiful location”
Reviewed 3 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We had to leave a review for this gorgeous shepherds hut. It was so cosy and well equipped, we had everything we needed to cook a couple of meals. The views from the window are stunning. Catherine was the perfect host, so friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. She was always there to welcome us into the house with a cup of tea after a hard day walking. The hut is in a perfect location for exploring Snowdonia National Park. We will definitely book another stay. Thank you Catherine!

“Tranquillity”
Reviewed 13 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Really needed to leave a review for this beautifully thought through, cosy little Hut.

We both were looking forward to staying for the 4 nights we had booked an thought we would have over stayed, but by our first evening we were really glad that we booked the 4 nights.
It had everything we needed to keep warm and comfortable from towels to water bottles, which I thought was a very kind gesture.
Our first night stay and the other 3, most probably was the best 4 nights sleep I've had in a while an woke up feeling energised, even after walking Snowdon (Watkins Path) day 1, Glyderau day 2 and into Betws-y-Coed town and back day 3, informed by the lovely Catherine it was 3 miles each way.

The scenery was breathe taking and what a way to relax than day dreaming from the Hut window looking out at snow capped mountains.

Catherine was lovely, she made sure we were comfortable and was generous in offering her conservatory and her kitchen.

Overall, we think this place deserves Excellent rating as we couldn't find any fault.

We would love to visit again.

Thank you so much Catherine for having us.


P.S We really didn't want to leave!!!
