“A wonderful place!”
Reviewed 20 October 2018 for a stay in October 2018

This is our fourth stay at Crud-Yr-Awel - our family loves this wonderful cottage! It's the small things that make it really special, nothing is too much trouble. We had let the owner, Mary Ann, know we would be arriving very late on the evening and she made a special early trip to the cottage to ensure the heating and lights were on for us when we arrived at close to midnight, so the cottage was warm and cosy even though we were wet and tired. I have never stayed at a better stocked holiday home - everything you could possibly want or need is provided, including an incredibly generous welcome basket. Our children (aged 4 and 8) love their attic bedroom complete with toy basket and a view on to the mountain. There is so much to do nearby and we managed to find new things to do despite it being our fourth visit. We loved the steam trains, the slate mines, the wonderful walks and countryside, and especially the beach at Criccieth!

“Lovely Cottage / Excellent sejour”
Reviewed 3 October 2018 for a stay in September 2018

The cottage is lovely and has all the utilities and more that we needed on our break - including a dishwasher, a washing machine, a toaster, an oven, stoves and many cooking tools and staples (oil, tea, sugar, herbs and spices, etc). The internet worked perfectly too - great for Netflix! The shower was strong and hot, the gas fire is charming, and there's back garden for BBQs as well.
The location is perfect, at the heart of Snowdonia, Blaenau Festiniog is also an interesting city with a lot of history - linked to the slate mine we visited during our stay. We also enjoyed many activities near the cottage including zip lines, biking and the steam train - all just 5 minutes away.
Mary Ann is the best host we could have hoped for. I recommend this lovely cottage highly!! A home away from home!

Le gite est charmant ainsi que sa location. Il y a tout ce qu'il faut - machine a laver, lave vaisselle, grille pain, four, plaques de cuisson, et tous les ustensiles pour cuisiner. Vous vous sentirez comme a la maison. L'internet fonctionne tres bien aussi - parfait pour Netflix! L'endroit est top, au coeur de Snowdonia, dans une petite ville avec plein d'histoire, liee aux minesque nous avons visite durant notre sejour. Nous avons fait beaucoup d'acitivites tout pres du gite - tirolienne, velo, escalade, balades, etc.
Mary Ann est une super hote. Je recommende vivement ce gite !! On s'y est senti comme a la maison.
