“Perfection in holiday cottage form”
Reviewed 2 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I've been to Snowdonia more times than I can count and stayed in loads of great places, but this is undoubtedly one of the best. My Mum and Dad (both retired), my wife and daughter (4-years old), and my brother and his partner stayed in Ty Siabod in September this year. As it was the first time my parents, my girls and my brother's lady had been to North Wales I wanted it to be special as it's a place I love. The photos on the website, the pre-booking information and the follow-up correspondence all suggested that this would be the case, but the reality was so much better than expected. Firstly, the cottage is in a simply stunning location above Capel Curig on the very slopes of Moel Siabod. The landscape and views are stunning and typically Snowdonian. The cottage itself is immaculate - clean, solid and beautiful inside and out. With 7 of us there wasn't too much spare room, but enough for us to sit and eat together in the dining room or gather around the living room to make plans. The only negative is that the weather was too nice to justify using the woodburner (which, incidentally, is pre-laid and ready to use). And it gets better. Marilyn had stocked the kitchen with provisions including Welsh cakes, fruit bread, biscuits, the and coffee, and even a few lollies for my daughter! If we'd arrived late and were unable to get to a shop that night, we wouldn't have gone hungry! The kitchen isn't huge, but who wants to spend all their time in the kitchen?! We took it in turns to cook or wash up and it all worked brilliantly. Likewise, there is only the one bathroom (but there are two toilets), which means a bit of a queue following a sweaty walk in the mountains. But if you're all friends that's not a big issue either - we had no difficulties at all. But it's the little personal touches that make the real difference. From the hand-written card welcoming us to Ty Siabod to the message on the chalk-board wishing us a good stay, our entire experience made us feel that we were welcome and respected guests, rather than just paying customers. Like I said at the outset, I've stayed in several places in Snowdonia (mostly for my work) but I simply can not recommend this cottage enough. We can't wait to go back. If you're thinking of booking, do it now before the owners wise up, realise just how good their property and service is and put their prices up! You won't regret it.

“excellent, problem with water”
Reviewed 15 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had an excellent stay. Good accommodation and brilliant location; helped by a sunny and rainfree week but I am afraid we can't promise that for everyone. We only lit the woodburner once so didn't nearly get through our first basket of logs.

They brought about 1000 sheep off the hill while we were there; very interesting.

A few negatives so people know in case they matter to them.
- Narrow kitchen awkward for two people to work.
- Dining room separated from kitchen by living room.

Biggest problem for our stay was an issue with the water. The owners are trying to get that fixed so it should be OK in future. For us it meant the shower ran out several times (we are not excessive shower users) and we gave up trying to have a bath; and there was a very noisy pump going a lot of the time and really reverberating through the rooms. I've knocked off one star because that is how it turned out for us; would have been ***** otherwise, and I hope will be again soon.

First of all may I thank you for your review, I thought it was very kind of you considering the inconvenience caused to you by the problems we were having with the water. Very happy to report that the bore hole pump is being replaced as we speak so no more loud noises from it and no more water shortages! We had a problem with manganese being dragged into the system which completely clogged the pump. The pump therefore was working overtime to compensate. The only way to stop the pump from continuously being on, was to reduce the water pressure, so solving one problem temporarily, caused another. I am so sorry for the major inconvenience this caused for you during your stay. If you would like to book with us anytime in the future, I am more than happy to give you a 50% discount.
Best wishes, Marilyn

“Wonderful mountain side retreat in a spectacular location”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This cottage is the nicest and best equipped holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. We stayed in the larger cottage, five of us for two nights then three of us for a further 5 nights. It has been a home from home, the owners have thought of everything you could think of needing in a holiday cottage, and more! The fire laid ready for lighting was especially wonderful, and although it was actually plenty warm enough without we couldn't resist the temptation to light it for one evening!! The kitchen is very well equipped with all the utensils, pots and pans you could need, and in the lounge there are plenty of games in the cupboard, and a large TV too, CD player etc. However none of that was needed as the surroundings provided us with all we needed - the ever changing views of the valley and mountains, and not forgetting the sheep, lambs and rabbits!! The extra WC downstairs was very useful, and the dining room was a nice surprise too, it was very handy after dinner as well for spreading out the maps to plan the next day's activities. On top of all that, the cottages were so very well located, minutes from Betws y Coed and just around the corner from Llanberis and Snowdon, nowhere is too far away, yet the cottages feel nicely away from the buzz of touristy areas. Although they are terraced you wouldn't know you had neighbours due to the thick walls, only occasionally being disturbed by the 'baa' of a sheep. We have had a wonderful time here and are very sad to be leaving our little cottage on the hill! We will be back!!

If you are looking for excellent accomodation for couples or small families close to Betws-y-coed, Capel Curig, Snowdonia etc. then you must not overlook these lovely furnished cottages.

Kitchen is fully equipped with cutlery, crockery, oven & hob, washing machine, fridge, separate freezer, washing powder & liquid, complimentary tea, coffee, cake and fruit loaf, microwave, toaster, kettle, iron board, vacumn etc. Also provided is guides, maps, leaflets for the local area and even some DVDs and books.
