Rated Excellent on Trip Advisor

I wanted to take a group of six hiking in Snowdonia and rent a cottage out in the hills. Tal Y Waen was perfect for us - three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a really lovely and cosy living room. When we weren't out in the mountains we enjoyed languishing in the living room with a roaring fire, reading some of the large collection of mountaineering and adventure books there. The dining room gave us space to have an excellent sit down dinner on the the Saturday evening. WiFi and a HiFi with MP3/iPod connection provided any additional entertainment we required. We will be coming back! Thank you for a lovely stay."

"A lovely big open fire was the feature of this house. All was clean, facilities were good, location had stunning far reaching views over to the sea with a mountain backdrop. Four of us stayed very comfortably and it provided an excellent location for walking in Snowdonia. Highly recommended!"
Bridget Keogh

"We enjoyed our week in the cottage which was the idea base for our walking,touring and star gazing. The cottage has eveything you need for a comfortable stay with the owners next door very happy to help, they quickly sorted an electrical problem, but in no way intrusive. It is a charming cottage with lots of character, many shelves of useful books, it was a shame the boys found the cleverly hidden TV. You do have to travel to find a nice walk but not very far. It is down a very quiet lane with lovely views. The thrush that made its nest in the window box thought so too."
