“Great location for exploring Snowdonia”
Reviewed 26 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My husband and I stayed here for a week in August with our 7 year old and grandparents. The house had everything we needed, a local shop 2 minutes away and a great location for exploring Snowdonia.

The only thing I would have liked to have been different would be 1 extra chair in the living room but apart from that everything was fabulous!

Thanks for your brilliant review & feedback. Although we provide folding camping chairs for extra seating, we will look into the possibility of adding another armchair in the living room and hopefully we will be able to address this issue. We hope to see you all again for your next visit to Snowdonia.

“Lovely, modern cottage in Blaenau”
Reviewed 15 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

Stayed here with my four children in August for one week.
The cottage is like a home from home and very comfortable and cosy. Comfy beds, great bathroom with power shower and bath and well-equipped kitchen made it a very high standard stay.
Lovely views as well and very conveniently situated within Blaenau with the Euro Spa only five minutes walk away and the centre of Blaenau itself only ten minutes walk.
Would definitely recommend as a base when visiting beautiful North Wales.

“Quality stay in stunning Blaenau Ffestiniog”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in November 2015

Stayed in the Borthwen Holiday Cottage for a family celebration. The holiday let was well located to all local amenities including the pubs! The town is visually spectacular and a must for the budding photographer! The accommodation itself was more than an adequate size for the 5 of us, 4 adults and a baby, clean and furnished to a high standard we felt comfortable and happy throughout our stay. There is lots to do and see in the town including the zip line which is about a 15 minute walk from the house and great fun if you are feeling adventurous. I would recommend staying here as there is something for everyone regardless of age, the people are friendly and helpful and the views are spectacular!
