Lovely cottage, well furnished,very clean, well equipped and good location, we had a lovely long weekend there, nice people too who are very friendly, highly recommended.

Welcomed by a lovely clean tidy cabin, and all the amenities you'd need. It's location is fantastic; with our travelling at a maximum of 1-1.5hours at most. It's a gorgeous place to retreat to on those rainy days. If we head this way again I will definately be rebooking!!! Was really sad to leave.

This property is excellent & in lovely, quiet surroundings. This is our 2nd visit & the owners ensure everything is in good working order with little extras which add to the holiday. We recommend this property to those who wish to self cater but have the luxury of the hotel dining if desired.

Caban-Y-Saer was absolutely wonderful. Tucked away in a peaceful setting it is a fab place to relax. A friendly welcome awaited us from one of the owners, Mick. Both Mick and Mel are lovely and friendly. Cavan-Y-Saer's location is handy for visiting other areas of Wales. It's fully equipped with things for cooking but if cooking isn't your thing, Bala...

Warmly welcomed by Mel and shown around the property. It is located in a small hamlet just outside of Bala which is a lovely little town to wonder round. So many places to go around North Wales. We can especially recommend the Welsh Mountain Zoo which is just over an hour away. The cottage has all the facilities needed to...

Next to a housing estate lies this place. Not what you expect when booking a holiday home. Kitchen, dining and lounge all in no more than 20 square metres. Bedroom to small to put in a decent sized bed. Would only take a double bed and door of the ensuite would hit the bed. Entrance to nice shower very small....

Without Prejudice. It was typical that we had decided to take a well deserved holiday whilst you were staying with us. You have a special deal at £21.50 each per night! I think that you would have just about been able to stay on a campsite for that money and of course it did rain all week so you might...
