“Wonderful stay in an amazing location ”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My boyfriend and one of our friends stayed for 3 nights and 4 days this August.

We had a wonderful stay. Just what we were looking for. Somewhere close to snowdon (as we were to climb on one of the days, only 20 minutes away)
Quiet, beautiful location, lovely village 1 mile away with plenty of cheap restaurants/pubs etc

The house had everything we needed, and the beds were super comfy!

Everywhere was lovely and clean and well looked after, especially the garden, with so many lovely flowers and an amazing view to wake up to in the morning.

Geoffrey and Wendy welcomed us and gave us some great advice on where to eat, climbing snowdon and seeing waterfalls and local places of interest.

We'd highly recommend a stay here if your planning a trip to wales.
Very thankful we were able to have a short booking as we only had 4 days to spare.

Thanks so much for letting us stay in your lovely home.

Dear Nikki, Jack and Tristan,

Thank you for your really nice Review. We were very pleased to be able to accommodate you and we are happy that you liked our comfy beds!

Sorry the driveway was a bit rough for your very unusual cars - we are going to get it tarmaced again very soon. We won't forget you and your out-of-this-world cars for a very long time!

If you visit North Wales another time we hope that you will come to stay again - with your cars!

Sincerely,

Geoffrey and Wendy

“The perfect rural retreat - an absolute delight!”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My husband and I were looking for somewhere special to celebrate our anniversary and after extensive research, we decided upon the Country Garden House. We were delighted with our choice - the views from the house and gardens are absolutely stunning. There are countless places to sit and enjoy the views in the glorious and extremely well-kept gardens. The house itself has everything you need (plus more) and you will receive an inventory prior to your stay to enable you to decide what you do NOT need to bring! Your hosts Wendy and Geoff are incredibly warm, welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable about the local area. There are many folders listing local walks and bike rides as well as local attractions - these are all very detailed and we enjoyed following a few of the maps to seek out local places. The location of the house is also excellent - you can walk into the delightful Betws y Coed and there are many other attractions in walking distance. We only used our car once - to visit Portmeirion for a meal. Wholeheartedly recommend.

Dear Francine and Philip,

Your kind review has drawn to my attention that I have failed to respond to several reviews. My only excuse is that we have been very busy gardening every day and I have not spotted your reviews. Unfortunately, Trip Advisor is no longer notifying us of reviews so we are in the dark unless a guest actually advises us by email. So, sorry EVERYONE and THANK YOU ALL, including; Gill Di and Dot, Geetali, Russell, Lucy, James and Daniel, for such generous reviews!

We love to read your reviews and to hear from you, whether good or bad, as it makes providing accommodation all the more worthwhile.

Wendy is very keen to ensure that the accommodation is "complete" so we are pleased to learn that nobody has yet been lacking for anything - other than superspeed WiFi.

The Wi-Fi ! Yes, we are sorry about our weak Wi-Fi. We just don't seem able to get the new Wi-Fi extenders to work properly. Maybe hard-wiring would be the answer? Help! - somebody, perhaps our next guest?

We do understand your need for Wi-Fi, if only to daily make your holiday plans while you are staying here. The signal is particularly weak for smaller gadgets - guests have less trouble with big laptop computers. The signal is OK near to the guests' television and very good in our kitchen. It's also very good out in the garden by the pond, and on the flat roof terrace. (Best on a sunny day!)

However, guests are very welcome to come in and hook up to our system, or use our (powerful) desk-top computer.

Our best mobile telephone signal is O2. Most others work once you are away from the nearby mountains. Guests can use our BT Landline.

We are happy to live with such limitations as our rural idyll more than compensates for such shortcomings.

Switch off your mobile telephone and relax!

On the plus side, we do have very nice fresh water - so don't buy it bottled.

Not everyone uses the guides, maps and route-cards that we have prepared but I do recommend them as they are packed with useful information drawing on our extensive local knowledge. Our Top Ten Favourite Walks is a really good read.

Snowdonia is more than 800 square miles (over half a million acres). It is blessed with thousands of acres of "Open Access" countryside and miles of Public Footpaths, Bridleways, Miners' Tracks, Green Lanes, Drovers' Roads, Roman Roads and, even, very ancient trackways; you could enjoy a different walk every day for a year and not use the same path twice.

Thank you once again for all your reviews,

Sincerely, Geoffrey and Wendy

“Another fantastic weekend”
Reviewed 19 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Thank you Wendy and Geoff, for another lovely weekend break, having stayed last October, my sister and I decided that this holiday let would be ideal to take our mum, who has limited mobility. We arrived on Thursday 11th June, and stayed until Sunday 14th June, our mum celebrated her birthday on the 14th, and Wendy gave her a lovely birthday card, which was a lovely touch.
My mum has expressed her wishes to go back again, so I will probably be back in touch some time in the future, to book the cottage again.
This property has everything you could need, it is truely like home from home. Even down to cling film and aluminium foil, to cover left overs in the fridge.
It is very quiet, with beautiful gardens, but close to Betws-y-coed if you want shops or tea rooms.

Thanks again

Gill Di and Dot

I am not much of a review writer, but this one was just irresistible. Wendy and Geoff have really spent lot of time and efforts maintaining this property.... Its in true sense home away from home, you wont find anything in this house which you could have asked for more .... wish we could have stayed for longer....

“Wonderful place with very friendly owners.”
Reviewed 15 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The place is situated up a hill with amazing views from the living room and garden. The surroundings are beautifully lamdscaped with lots of flowers all over the place. It jas absolutely anything one can imagine so cooking is simple. Plenty of larger pots to make food for a couple of days. Best equipped rented property we have ever stayed in.

The only small criticism is that the wifi is very weak inside the house - only works in a small part of the living room and in the front garden but it should be easy to fix.

The owners are very friendly and offer lots of information about the area, walsks etc.
