“Excellent location and 5 star service from the owners”
Reviewed 29 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Beautiful clean cottage, fantastic gardens (extremely well kept and many places to sit and take in the scenery) - a much needed relaxing long weekend stay in a great location with breathtaking views.

Lots of leaflets and brochures about walks/museums etc and surrounding areas in the cottage which is most helpful.

Geoffrey and Wendy are lovely and so welcoming nothing is too much trouble.

Thank you, Anna and Richard for your kind comments.

The views of our garden and the hills of Snowdonia were fast disappearing behind misted double glazing, and the contractors had just started to replace 26 of them - when you telephoned to enquire about vacancies. Phew! That was a bit of a panic, but we managed to get cleaned up before you both arrived. How nice it was to have such pleasant guests visit us after all that.

We very much enjoyed having you and hope that you will come again - if only for you to chill out from your hectic professional lives. If you can give us a little more notice next time, we may be able to arrange for some fine weather for you as well!

Sincerely

Geoffrey and Wendy Tyson

“Perfect cottage with an amazing view”
Reviewed 30 June 2011 for a stay in June 2011

What a perfect cottage to enjoy our 4 days in and around Betws-y-Coed. Situated high above the village with the most amazing view of Snowdonia from the panorama window. The cottage was spotlessly clean with everything you could want for a comfortable stay including a washing machine. Plenty to see and do in the area as well as some nice walks from your front door. Wendy and Geoffrey are extremely knowledgeable about their little piece of paradise, they truly love where they live and want to share it with you. Their garden is a delight with many places to sit and relax in.

Thanks for a wonderful stay in Garden Cottage and we hope the geraniums keep on flowering.

Thank you for your very kind comments, Ros and Eric. We are pleased that the accommodation was to your liking and up to scratch. Yes, the geraniums are flowering well, thank you. We enjoyed having you to stay for a few days and hope that the rest of your tour was successful - if not quite as energetic!

Geoff and Wendy.

The Country Garden House in Betws-y-Coed was an absolute gem of a place for us to stay in Northern Wales. The garden apartment was spaciously comfortable and we had fabulous garden and forest views through large windows from every room. The location was ideal being just a few minutes from charming Betws-y-Coed village and we had the beautiful Snowdonia National Park on our doorstep as well. The kitchen had everything a reasonable traveller could want and the inventory was much better than average. Owners Geoff and Wendy were so relaxed and friendly. They couldn't have done more to make our 4 day visit the highlight in our long UK touring itinerary so far. They were also extremely knowledgable about the local hiking trails, some of which pass by their property's boundary. We should have booked in for at least a week but our four days there will remain a long treasured memory.

The pleasure was all ours. We enjoyed having Brian and Lynn as our guests, and hearing all about Australia. Perhaps we should travel more, too! Thank you, Brian and Lynn, for your kind comments and for leaving the house in perfect order.

“Lovely Holiday Rental”
Reviewed 4 May 2011 for a stay in April 2011

Lovely holiday rental in a great location. Geoffrey and Wendy are very friendly hosts and very knowledgeable about the local area. It is worth noting the road there is hilly and single track.
