“Gorgeous cottage and location”

We have just returned from a 7 night stay here and have to say it was wonderful. It was our first holiday bringing our 3 month old baby away. On arrival to the cottage, we grateful for the tea, coffee and biscuits that had been left. The cottage was very clean, and had everything and more that we needed for our stay. I am usually very fussy about cleanliness but was more than happy with the standard. Plenty of logs were provided for the fire which was lovely. Sky TV and wifi were available, no problems at all with the signal. We cooked at the cottage a few nights and the kitchen is very well stocked. A cot was available if needed (we didn't as we brought our own) and a baby bath was left out for us, which we used. The surrounding area was breathtaking with lovely walks and views by the river running close to the cottage. Further out, we had days out including the Ffestiniog steam railway, Portmerion, the aquaduct, Llangollen steam train (wonderful walk and views in Carrog, and a lovely pub called the Grouse served us with delicious food there) we ate at the Cornmill (Llangollen centre) over looking the river (gorgeous food and views) and also the Hand (about 3 miles away) - food amazing. We would definitely recommend all these places and the cottage and will definitely return at some point. If you book here, I hope you have a great time like we did

“Cosy cottage, clean & picturesque.”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We enjoyed a lovely stay Erw Gerrig cottage. Mary & Rob were easy to communicate with prior to & during our stay if we needed.

The cottage was clean & didn't smell of dog. Bedding & towels were provided & there was fresh milk in the fridge when we arrived. The 3 children enjoyed sleeping together in the one room which was great as we didn't need to have 1 child in a room on their own.

We cooked in on a few nights and the kitchen had everything we needed. I'd arranged a food delivery for our arrival evening so packing was much easier & the car wasn't full of cereal, butter, snacks etc. It was also handy having the washing machine & tumble drier so I didn't need to undo my holiday rest by trawling through loads of washing when I got home.

There are some Sky channels available on the TV & some DVD's provided for the evenings if you are just relaxing in & the wood burner warmed up the cottage really well & gave a wonderful cosy feel on the couple of chilly evenings we had. The Wifi is a little intermittent but Rob explained that it is improving and we were able to access it in the mornings for info about local activities/places to eat & I was able to download books onto my Kindle.

The location is great for activities and we went horse riding, quad biking, clay pigeon shooting, zip wiring & fishing. We also spent a day on the beach which was about 1 1/4 hr drive away & beautiful and we also visited a waterfall & walked across an extremely high (knee trembling) aquaduct!

There is a field/wood behind the cottage which our children (aged 12, 12 & 10) took the dog to each morning for a run & play. It was secure & I didn't feel worried about them up there.

The surrounding area is beautiful & we went for a few dog walks down by the river which the children were able to paddle in in their wellies when the water wasn't flowing too fast. We also walked high up in the hills across farms which was refreshing & energetic! The children loved climbing to the very top!

All in all this was a lovely holiday, we were all happy with the cottage, the location & all the activities available to us.

Thank you Mary & Rob.

The title says it all. Wonderful place to stay in the beautiful area of north Wales. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. Could not find a fault.

“lovely cottage and setting”
Reviewed 11 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My 3 cousins and I rented this cottage together for a family reunion and we were very pleased with the accommodation. The views and walks are amazing and perfect for just stepping out of the door straight for our walk. The cottage is lovely with the old beams and character of the cottage coming through. We had a lovely stay the bedding was lovely, fresh, and clean the kitchen was of a good standard (some of the appliances looked new) I would recommend this cottage to everyone. thank you for a lovely stay.

“Doesn't live up to its potential.”

Erw Gerrig Cottage is in a fantastic location with amazing views of the valley right from the front door and garden. There are beautiful walks starting virtually on the doorstep suitable for a family stroll or a longer walk with a backpack and picnic.

If this is all that matters to you then this is the place for you.

However, if the standard of the accommodation matters at all to you then be very careful. With the exception of the bedding, everything in the cottage is old, battered or dirty.

There isn't a single window with clean, clear glass, the paintwork is dirty, scuffed and peeling everywhere you look. The kitchen surfaces and cupboard interiors were all sticky and greasy and both the living room and kitchen floors were filthy.

On arrival and having seen the standard of the cleanliness, we decided to only use certain cupboards and shelves and clean those ourselves. We still spent 2 hours cleaning the kitchen and bathroom before we were happy enough to unpack our bags. The cloths we used in the kitchen and bathroom needed throwing away after using.

The cooker and oven were so greasy they both started smoking just while heating up, before we even cooked anything on them.

The exposed beams and stone work shown in the pictures may seem to add character to the cottage and give a warm and cosy look but are in fact thick with dust and dirt and both ancient and new cobwebs and mouse droppings. Fresh droppings and snail trails across the living room floor each morning only added to the feeling of griminess.

We know what to expect with regards country living and the occasional wild life incursion into houses is not surprising but some of the signs we saw were very obviously months old and no effort had been made to clean or clear them. A clear health hazard.

The 2 acre field to the rear of the property was so overgrown with nettles and brambles as to make it unusable and the front garden (with the amazing views) was overgrown and full of dead plants and flowers. The garden table with fixed seating was rough and chipped with peeling paint and felt unsafe with more than one person sitting on the same side

Having spent 22 years in the Army, I am more than able to make the best of my accommodation but having booked this cottage for a week, we decided that 2 nights here was enough and left 5 days early.

The cottage has a great deal of potential but unfortunately the low standard of maintenance and cleaning mean we will not be back and cannot recommend it to anyone else.

Both of the stars I give this cottage are for the location, none are for the accommodation.
