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.

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. 

August 2019 Air BnB

Such a lovely house and truly stunning location between the mountains and the sea. The house is just like the photos: very well equipped and furnished beautifully with lots of attention to detail. The charming housekeeper provided clean towels and fresh flowers and cleaned for us at the end of the first week which made us feel quite spoilt!

Utterly magical cottage. First class cleanliness, finish, facilities, fixture and fittings. Surprisingly spacious for the 5 of us too. We loved our time here and didn't want to leave. The peace and quiet is remarkable; the tranquility seems to absorb any stress out of you.

July 2019

A very peaceful, quiet and tranquil place that has clearly been renovated to a high standard. Extremely clean, comfortable and well equipped. Very well located to explore local area, beaches etc. We had  great week and would certainly return. I have no hesitation in recommending to others. 

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 quiet .


October 2019 Air BnB

Amazing cottage, with outstanding views. We spent five days in the cottage with friends and their young family and everyone was more than happy and impressed with the stay. We were greeted with fresh flowers and local foods. The village is just a short drive away with great amenities. The cottage was spotless and could not be faulted. We would highly recommend to anyone. 

November 2019 Sawdays Special Places

It was a great stay. The location was rural down a country lane with sheep in the fields and stone walls. The sea and bay were also on view. The location is a real get-away: seclusion, peace and beauty! Inside the cottage, the design, furniture and specs are all tasteful and high quality. Every comfort and convenience seems to be provided for - including an open fire, food and treats on arrival and guide books and games for a rainy day. We look forward to going again. 


August 2019 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.


December 2019 Sawdays Special Places

My partner and I keep coming back to this cottage as it is perfect for us. Away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to many local attractions. We stayed for a long weekend in December and found it warm and secluded with the only visitor being the excellent housekeeper and a few friendly sheep. This is definitely 5*

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.

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 2019

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.


November 2019 Air BnB

A truly wonderful cottage.Well appointed and clean on arrival. Will definitely be booking again. A great cottage. 



The Cottage - October 2019 - Air BnB

This is a perfect rural retreat. The outside area is great, including a lovely pool and many areas where you can sunbath in peace and quiet. The airport is only 25 minutes away and there are several good places to eat nearby. You will need to hire a car to make the most of this beautiful area.

The Cottage - July 2019 - Air BnB

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 - Air BnB

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 - Air BnB

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 - Air BnB

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 - Air BnB

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 - Air BnB

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

The Farmhouse - July 2019 - Air BnB

We spent 8 nights at this lovely secluded villa. Whilst being remote, it is very well connected to nearby towns and there is a very friends bar within a short walk from the property. The host and his small team of helpers were amazing and I would not hesitate to recommend or return to this place again

The Farmhouse August 2019 - Air BnB

Great villa with lovely pool and badminton court is a real bonus. Excellent communication and service. A car essential.
