Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your great cottage, it was truly so beautiful . We wish we could have stayed longer. Truly appreciate all the small thoughtful and elegant touch you have put into the place.

Ms Sabaah B,

We had the best time here last week. The house was totally amazing as was the view. The welcome gift including chocolate, beer, cakes and crisps was a lovely surprise.

Mrs Claire R,

Everything was great and such a peaceful location

Mr Trevor B,

The property is just amazing and a perfect location for visiting zip world, Snowden and other attractions. We couldn't have chosen a better property to go back and relax in after a busy active day. The welcome hamper was just beautiful, the views took our breath away, we liked it that much we have already booked for next year. I think we will definitely be back yearly.

Miss Michelle O,

Couldn't recommend this property and area high enough if you are looking for somewhere to just completely unwind and recharge.

Miss Nicola D,

The cottage is in an excellent location with beautiful views. The location up a small country lane gives you peace and quiet but with a main road just a mile and half away, you have easy access across Snowdonia. The welcome pack on arrival was excellent, loved the way that it gave you a flavour of the area.

Mr Marek W,

Bryan Ystrad Llyn is a well appointed, cosy, spacious farmhouse in a beautiful rural setting. The welcome package was very generous indeed and the owner popped in to pay a courtesy visit to check we were settled in ok. The log burning fire in the lounge was a bonus on cooler nights. The beaches and shopping are just a few minutes drive away as are a good many of Snowdonia’s attractions. We enjoyed our stay so much, we’ve booked to return next year. The Best of Wales team have been brilliant. Thank you.

Mr Patrick D,

Great out-of-the-way location but close enough to the natural beauty of this part of Wales.

Mr Ian G,

Lovely house which was beautifully presented & most importantly, immaculately clean. Well maintained. Fabulous welcome pack & lovely owner. Location quiet & peaceful with beautiful views. Peacefully quiet but not too isolated. Loved it! Have used Best of Wales several times. Staff are always friendly & most helpful. Properties are of an excellent standard too.

Lynn from K,

If you are walking or just wanting to see sites, this house is amazing for families, couples or groups of people. Amazing views and the house itself is gorgeous. We stayed for my dads 70th and had 2 children they had plenty to do from playing to watching the stars. Thanks.
