We stayed here in early August as a base to walk up Snowdon for my dads 70th birthday celebration/challenge. The B&B and both Sarah and Mark were great, the place was modern & spotless and the breakfast was very tasty. Wouldn't hesitate to recommended or use again.

Hello Jeremy, It was lovely hosting your family's stay to celebrate your Dad's 70th birthday with a hike up Snowdon. It certainly was a challenge as we recall with you all experiencing nearly all weathers from sun to storm during your hike. You certainly won't forget the day! We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope...

The bed was not really comfy but when we told Sarah she was willing to change that immediately for future guests. The breakfast is really great with fesh fruit, yoghurts and...
