“We had high hopes for this place as it’s in a beautiful location, very peaceful and looked like a lovely place to stay for a short break. It is very tastefully furnished and the large double bed is super comfy. Unfortunately, things started to go wrong from check in when David made a bizarre and disappointing racist remark about a Chinese friend of his whilst telling a story about his home being haunted. There are no cooking facilities in the property other than a small microwave (the listing states “Kitchen - space where guests can cook their own meals”). With no cooker, pans or cooking utensils it made self catering quite challenging. The listing advised that the host had committed to an enhanced cleaning protocol. Unfortunately there was no evidence of this. There was no sign of any sanitising having taken place within the property. Furthermore the property was generally quite grubby (especially the kitchen) and could have done with a thorough deep clean. - Filthy, old dish sponge left by sink - Dirty, used bars of soaps by sink - Grubby kitchen table which brought up dirt when wiped - Someone else’s shower body brush and pouf left in shower - All skirting boards grimey and covered in what appeared to be dog hair (especially bathroom and behind kitchen table) - Clumps of dust under dining table - Fridge had not been cleaned - The bread that had been left out for breakfast was mouldy! On arrival we spent the first 30 minutes sanitising all touch points and cleaning generally. We decided not to report to the host at the time because a thorough deep clean (which would have taken all day was required) and we were only there for a short time. This feedback is left as constructive criticism as this is about keeping everyone safe, including the hosts. We have stayed in several self-catering properties since Covid and all have adopted enhanced hygiene and sanitising procedures. Such a shame as it could have been a wonderful stay!!”

“Thank you for a wonderful three night stay. The barn is absolutely fantastic. Living in a big city can be very noisy and your barn was able to provide us with us peace and quiet and a chance to detach ourselves from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It is so close to the Llanberis. footpath which was fantastic. The surrounding waterfalls were magical to explore and it is only a 30 minute drive from Betws-y-Coed which was great when we went out for the day there and Zip World. The barn inside had everything we needed. We cooked three superb meals, chilled out with wine and listened to your array of cds as well as relaxing in the beautiful bath. The log burner is a fantastic extra for those cold winter nights in the winter months. Thank you for making our stay special and totally stress free. We will definitely be back soon!”

“What a beautiful little cottage in a gorgeous location! I stayed with my hubby and 10 month old. There was plenty of room in the bedroom to fit our travel cot and lots of space for the little one to play. Kathy had made fresh bread shortbread biscuits and Welsh fruit cake for us along with fresh eggs, milk and all the other kitchen essentials made it so easy to just turn up with no worries about brekkie or a cup of tea before bed. Absolutely perfect it felt like a home from home so comfortable and relaxing we’ll definitely be going back”
