August 2019 Air BnB

Lovely house and a good location.  Utterly magical cottage. First class cleanliness, finish, facilities, fixtures and fittings. Surprisingly spacious for the 5 of us too. We loved our time here and didn't want to leave. 

August 2019 Air BnB

Such a lovely house and truly stunning location between the mountains and the sea. The house is just like the photos: very well equipped and furnished beautifully with lots of attention to detail. The charming housekeeper provided clean towels and fresh flowers and cleaned for us at the end of the first week which made us feel quite spoilt!

Utterly magical cottage. First class cleanliness, finish, facilities, fixture and fittings. Surprisingly spacious for the 5 of us too. We loved our time here and didn't want to leave. The peace and quiet is remarkable; the tranquility seems to absorb any stress out of you.

A very peaceful, quiet and tranquil place that has clearly been renovated to a high standard. Extremely clean, comfortable and well equipped. Very well located to explore local area, beaches etc. We had  great week and would certainly return. I have no hesitation in recommending to others.

Would highly recommend this cottage. We absolutely loved our stay at Pont Faen. The property is beautifully done. Warm, comfortable and well equipped. The setting is stunning. It is extremely peaceful and quite.

Amazing cottage, with outstanding views. We spent five days in the cottage with friends and their young family and everyone was more than happy and impressed with the stay. We were greeted with fresh flowers and local foods. The village is just a short drive away with great amenities. The cottage was spotless and could not be faulted. We would highly recommend to anyone. 

November 2019 Sawdays Special Places

It was a great stay. The location was rural down a country lane with sheep in the fields and stone walls. The sea and bay were also on view. The location is a real get-away: seclusion, peace and beauty! Inside the cottage, the design, furniture and specs are all tasteful and high quality. Every comfort and convenience seems to be provided for - including an open fire, food and treats on arrival and guide books and games for a rainy day. We look forward to going again. 


August 2019 Home Away

Had an enjoyable week in a nice cottage in a beautiful part of the country. Nicely furnished and everything provided for self catering. If you like peace and quiet in scenic countryside combined with easy access to local amenities ( Criccieth & Porthmadog ) and fine beaches ( Harlech & Llanbedrog ) then this place is ideal.


December 2019 Sawdays Special Places

My partner and I keep coming back to this cottage as it is perfect for us. Away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to many local attractions. We stayed for a long weekend in December and found it warm and secluded with the only visitor being the excellent housekeeper and a few friendly sheep. This is definitely 5*

August 2019 Air BnB

We loved our stay here! Very quiet, beautiful home from home in stunning location with resident sheep to keep us entertained. House is very well appointed, clean and comfortable. Good for exploring Llyn Peninsula, Snowdonia and Portmeirion. Also don't miss a trip over the Menai Bridge to Anglesey.

We were very impressed by Y Boncyn and enjoyed a lovely week there. It is nestled in a secluded valley overlooked only by a few friendly sheep. The building has been renovated to a very high standard and is very tastefully furnished with lots of lovely attention to detail. We would certainly return for another peaceful holiday in beautiful Snowdonia.


Home Away October 2019

The cottage is off the beaten track but still close enough to Portmadog for all amenities. The cottage has been decorated to the highest of standards and the underfloor heating was a treat.  The towels and duvets were amazing, we felt completely relaxed and calm, just what we all needed. The walks around the area are beautiful. It really is a perfect location for many sites in North Wales. We loved it so much that we are returning next year.



October 2019 Air BnB

Be prepared for a heart warming, fascinating, captivating and memorable visit to a history packed, comfortable, super clean, luxurious yet incredibly homely home. My family all gathered at Carregfelen for four days to celebrate my 70th birthday in late October. We were welcomed by Viv who immediately lit us a welcome fire and later produced the best three course meal of our stay unobtrusively and effortlessly catering for our diverse dietary requirements. The house is steeped in family history and we felt privileged to be able to roam it and absorb Snowdonia at our leisure. Please visit this wonderful place, you won’t regret it.

 What a lovely home this is. Set in beautiful grounds and with oodles of history, this is a house that is crammed with character. Despite its age everything is laid on to an excellent standard - utilities, hot water, Wi-Fi etc. are all top notch - and the location is perfect for exploring local beaches and attractions. There was something to discover anew each day. I'd encourage you to read the thorough welcome pack for some history of the house and lots of useful local info. We took up the option of a homecooked meal from Viv, the fabulous housekeeper, on arrival - very glad we did, it was lovely, and there were more thoughtful touches awaiting us too. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Carregfelen - it felt like being warmly welcomed to a family home - and would recommend it to anyone



April 2019 Air BnB

The cottage has everything you would want for a luxury holiday. It is in a great location and is an ideal base to explore the surrounding areas. Black Rock Sands is a real find and is a beautiful beach, if you are lucky and you go early enough you will have the beach to yourself! Viv, the housekeeper is a lovely character and nothing is too much trouble. This is our second time in one of David’s cottages and we will definitely be coming again.

June 2019 Air Bnb

What a beautiful idyllic cottage this was. Everything was perfect and well maintained. Comfortable cosy beds, great living room area for the evenings with a fully equipped kitchen. We can't fault this one and we've stayed in a few! You won't be disappointed. 


February 2019 Air BnB

Beautiful cottage in beautiful location. Woke up to sheep outside the bedroom window - even that was enjoyable! Lovely touches of flowers and fresh cake and homemade jam beautifully presented in a pretty bag. Warm and cosy for winter stays.

January 2019 Air BnB

Wonderful cottage with everything you would need for a relaxing stay. Beautifully decorated, great location and hosts were great at responding. The houskeeper was lovely and helpful too.  Would definitely recommend and would love to come back in the future. Many thanks
