A wonderful peaceful escape from it all hideaway in the most tranquil setting. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay special and that is true of my experience.Will hope to return in the future for more of the same.

“Fantastic!!”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Well,where do I start!just back from a most fantastic relaxing break with my husband for our anniversary!
From the moment we pulled up we immediately felt in our own little world!surrounded by beautiful Welsh scenery.
The wonderful surprise for me were the flowers and champagne that my husband had prearranged with Beth ready for our arrival!amazing !
Kestrel cottage is very clean with a homely feel. The welcome pack is a godsend after a long journey!fresh bread, milk, tea and coffee etc just what we needed,not to mention the locally baked bara brith very yummy! Although the cottage is hidden away it's only a 5 minute drive to the lovely village of Betws y Coed where we had a lovely dinner at the Royal Oak hotel.
We can highly recommend the huge scones at siabod cafe which is only 5 minutes from the cottage.
The highlight of our stay was the hot tub!after our hike up Moel Siabod the evening was spent in the glorious hot tub!
We have already booked our next stay and may even bring the kids and test out the newly opened surf snowdonia and tree top adventures!

Thank you Ben and Beth for a wonderful stay x

“A beautiful slice of heaven!”
Reviewed 11 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

First off, I would just like to state that Beth and Ben are the most accommodating people I have ever met! From the moment I began enquiring about the cottage to the moment we left the cottage, both Beth and Ben have made sure that I do not feel lost in any way. If you are looking for customer service then the Lucas' are by far the best.

The cottage was beyond my expectations. It was warm, welcoming and incredibly decorated. Everything was clean and all of the appliances were up to date. The hot tub made the trip even more enjoyable! If you're looking for a cottage that is hidden in the beautiful Welsh hills, then Kestrel Cottage is perfect.

Me and my family look forward to visiting again, a big thank you to Beth and Ben!! xx

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Kestrel Cottage was exactly what we were looking for and more.

The location was close enough to civilisation if we wanted it, but remote enough to get that all important there's only us here feeling.

The cottage itself was wonderful, with a country cottage feel but with all the mod cons. Highlights being the wonderful view from the decking and of course the fantastic hot tub!

The treats left for us on arrival were well received and a nice touch.

For our accompanying teenagers the Wi Fi was great but also the fact that there was a stock of board games available meant that it was a joy to sit down as a family and rediscover the fun to be had playing some old favourites!

The acid test for us is always would we stay again.........in this case it's a resounding yes! Only next time we may just leave the teens at home!!!

“Unforgettable!”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Some friends and I stayed here in July 2015 and it was simply amazing. So easy to get to yet so private. Sitting on the table on the balcony having our breakfast in the sunshine, admiring the view, you can actually see Kestrels flying in the sky. We had a little squirrel join us one morning too and a cow decided to come for a drink it our stream! You wouldn't think there was a popular village a few miles down the road. At night we installed ourselves in the hot tub on a clear night and waited for the International Space Station to do an impressive flyby.
I couldn't recommend this place enough, the house itself is fab with a superb blend of old world charm and modern kit like an enormous television and wifi. Between the boat and car hire the journey from Dublin port was just over 4 hrs, I couldn't believe how accessible. Then its I think less than an hour or so away from Mount Snowdon which is a whole other review in itself. This trip and this house is a great idea for Irish people (and all people too of course)
