Both cottages are comfortable, warm and cosy and a great place for a break for a couple in an area with some great countryside and a base for North and Mid-Wales. Mel and Mike gave us a great welcome and were very helpful with local information.

My partner and I spent a week at the Caban y Saer self catering cottage and it proved to be a real escape from our busy daily lives. The cabin itself is on the same site as the owners residence but separate enough to be self contained. It's a quiet rural setting with plenty of local walks. You can walk...
