My partner and I had the most wonderful New Year break at Cysgod y Coed. A Cosy country cottage, finished to a high standard and well placed to explore the Snowdonia countryside. Hope to return in the summer.

Both cottages are comfortable, warm and cosy and a great place for a break for a couple in an area with some great countryside and a base for North and Mid-Wales. Mel and Mike gave us a great welcome and were very helpful with local information.
