August 2019 Air BnB

Lovely house and a good location.  Utterly magical cottage. First class cleanliness, finish, facilities, fixtures and fittings. Surprisingly spacious for the 5 of us too. We loved our time here and didn't want to leave. 

June 2019 Air BnB

 Would highly recommend this cottage. We absolutely loved our stay at Pont Faen. The property is beautifully done. Warm, comfortable and well equipped. The setting is stunning. It is extremely peaceful and quite. 


October 2018 Air BnB

A great location, convenient for beaches and mountains. Comfortably sized for up to 6 - decadent for just the two of us! Very well furnished with a sheltered garden which meant we could still eat outside at the start of October. The open fire is a great centre piece for the living room and provided enough entertainment and focus that the television never got turned on at all. Great support and welcome from Viv.

 August 2018 Home Away

Had an enjoyable week in a nice cottage in a beautiful part of the country. Nicely furnished and everything provided for self catering. If you like peace and quiet in scenic countryside combined with easy access to local amenities ( Criccieth & Porthmadog ) and fine beaches ( Harlech & Llanbedrog ) then this place is ideal.


August 2019 Air BnB

We loved our stay here! Very quiet, beautiful home from home in stunning location with resident sheep to keep us entertained. House is very well appointed, clean and comfortable. Good for exploring Llyn Peninsula, Snowdonia and Portmeirion. Also don't miss a trip over the Menai Bridge to Anglesey.  


September 2018 Trip Advisor

We were very impressed by Y Boncyn and enjoyed a lovely week there. It is nestled in a secluded valley overlooked only by a few friendly sheep. The building has been renovated to a very high standard and is very tastefully furnished with lots of lovely attention to detail. We would certainly return for another peaceful holiday in beautiful Snowdonia.


Home Away October 2018

The cottage is off the beaten track but still close enough to Portmadog for all amenities. The cottage has been decorated to the highest of standards and the underfloor heating was a treat.  The towels and duvets were amazing, we felt completely relaxed and calm, just what we all needed. The walks around the area are beautiful. It really is a perfect location for many sites in North Wales. We loved it so much that we are returning next year.


New Year 2020 - Sawday's special places

Absolutely majestic large house and surrounds. Secluded and cosy but within striking distance of all of the areas of natural beauty - excellent country pubs and amenities should you need them. We had some of the best memories of our lives here! Highly recommended. 

November 2019 - Sawday's special places

Absolutely stunning house in beautiful surroundings. We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Sampson's Cave. 

February 2019 - Sawday's special places

This is a beautiful house, very comfortable and full of character. We especially loved the rushing river on the other side of the railway line, the occasional sound of the two trains an hour chugging past on the Settle-Carlisle line and the cosy kitchen for big meals. Lots of space and perfect for a big group. 

Christmas 2018 Owners Direct

I just wanted to say, what an amazing week we've had. Thanks so much for letting us stay in your wonderful house - it couldn't have been more perfect. 

July 2018 Air BnB

I would recommend this house for anyone who appreciates comfort, cosiness, warmth and humour in their surroundings. We had a lovely stay.



October 2018 Air BnB

Be prepared for a heart warming, fascinating, captivating and memorable visit to a history packed, comfortable, super clean, luxurious yet incredibly homely home. My family all gathered at Carregfelen for four days to celebrate my 70th birthday in late October. We were welcomed by Viv who immediately lit us a welcome fire and later produced the best three course meal of our stay unobtrusively and effortlessly catering for our diverse dietary requirements. The house is steeped in family history and we felt privileged to be able to roam it and absorb Snowdonia at our leisure. Please visit this wonderful place, you won’t regret it.

 What a lovely home this is. Set in beautiful grounds and with oodles of history, this is a house that is crammed with character. Despite its age everything is laid on to an excellent standard - utilities, hot water, Wi-Fi etc. are all top notch - and the location is perfect for exploring local beaches and attractions. There was something to discover anew each day. I'd encourage you to read the thorough welcome pack for some history of the house and lots of useful local info. We took up the option of a homecooked meal from Viv, the fabulous housekeeper, on arrival - very glad we did, it was lovely, and there were more thoughtful touches awaiting us too. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Carregfelen - it felt like being warmly welcomed to a family home - and would recommend it to anyone



April 2018

The cottage has everything you would want for a luxury holiday. It is in a great location and is an ideal base to explore the surrounding areas. Black Rock Sands is a real find and is a beautiful beach, if you are lucky and you go early enough you will have the beach to yourself! Viv, the housekeeper is a lovely character and nothing is too much trouble. This is our second time in one of David’s cottages and we will definitely be coming again.


February 2018 Air BnB

Beautiful cottage in beautiful location. Woke up to sheep outside the bedroom window - even that was enjoyable! Lovely touches of flowers and fresh cake and homemade jam beautifully presented in a pretty bag. Warm and cosy for winter stays.

January 2018 Air BnB

Wonderful cottage with everything you would need for a relaxing stay. Beautifully decorated, great location and hosts were great at responding. The houskeeper was lovely and helpful too.  Would definitely recommend and would love to come back in the future. Many thanks


February 2018

Just returned from a wonderful few days at Pantymoeliad with the whole family. Gorgeous house and great location. A lovely welcome from Helen who also accommodated a late checkout which is always welcome. We will return. 

August 2018 Air BnB

Brilliant house with every amenities one could want - stunning area with beaches and mountains nearby - loved every minute here

June 2018 Air BnB

The cottage was lovely only a few miles from a seaside town with a supermarket but felt very tranquil. The cottage had everything we needed to cater for all 8 of us and we were all able to sit together comfortably to eat. The cottage was finished to a high standard with a large garden. It was 40 mins to park to Climb Snowdon and an hour to Anglesey where there is the most beautiful beaches. We loved our time in North Wales.



The Cottage - July 2019

We all had an amazing holiday at the Cottage. Lovely pool and lots of private space. Not too far to travel to other areas but far enough to be away from the crowds

The Cottage - July 2019

Really beautiful location and villa. Just perfect for a relaxed, chilled holiday. Perfectly located for exploring the Eastern Algarve and the more central locations. Thanks so much

The Cottage - June 2019

The villa is as described by the owner and is a great location for a relaxing holiday. The cafe/restaurant down the road is a great place to have a beer or enjoy an evening meal. 

The Cottage - June 2019

Fantastic house with gorgeous views and nature. One of the best places we stayed. Calm, clean, even nicer than the photos - highly recommended. Thank you. 

The Farmhouse - May 2019

We were a group of 4 adults and 2 kids and really enjoyed our stay at this amazing property, with great countryside views. The outside area with the pool made our days even better. We could also have all our meals outside in the outside dining area - even in windy evenings or hot sunny days. The staff were very friendly and responsive. The surrounding area is beautiful and from there we could visit several beaches.

The Farmhouse - July 2019

Wonderful rustic hideway - well away from the touristy coast. Lovely size pool - hard to keep the kids out. Just perfect for unwinding.
