“Great value cottage with loads of space and great hosts”
Reviewed 1 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Abbey End is a perfect cottage for exploring Snowdonia - we really really liked it. We were 5 adults staying over a long weekend, going hiking in Snowdonia.

The house itself was really interesting - loads of tucked away bedrooms, all fitted out in a very comfortable way. The living room and dining area is a great space - loads of room for the 5 of us to chill out and socialise. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking your own meals. Rob and Brian were very helpful hosts - never imposing on our stay, but willing to offer advice about the area if needed.

Overall, the cottage is fabulous value for the size. It sleeps 8 comfortably and there would be plenty of space for all of you in the living accommodation in the evenings. I would recommend this cottage to anyone going to Snowdon and looking for self catering.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 19 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

After a warm welcome from our hosts Bryan and Rob we settled into Abbey End.The home while quaint and cosy is fitted with many mod cons i am still amazed with the heated mirror in the bathroom with built in clock.The home is set in a picturesque garden with stream and close to shops and towns.This was the perfect end to our holiday in the UK and will take home many fond memories.We will be back and recommend Abbey End to our friends.Thanks again guys.

Really impressed with the cottage, clean, spacious, private and loads of mod cons - would highly recommend! An excellent base for the many activities the area has to offer.

“Peaceful Location, Lovely cottage!”
Reviewed 2 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Three friends and me went to climb Snowdon last weekend. We stayed in this lovely cottage which we all loved. The rooms were very nicely decorated, the whole house has been recently refurbished. Overall, the house was very cosy, it made you want to stay longer to enjoy the cottage and surrounding a bit more.

We loved the gesture the hosts had of turning the heating on before we arrived so that the house was ready to welcome us, they got milk, vine, bread, butter and biscuits for us, as well as tea, coffee and sugar. Little details that make you feel good and grateful.

There is a garden at the back and a little pond, with outside furniture and a garden heater, perfect to sit down in a clear night and enjoy a relaxing glass of vine or beer.

On Saturday night, we watch one of the DVDs the hosts had left in the cottage for us. Very thoughtful of them!

We thought the price was very fair for what we got. We were delighted and will definitely come back!

To summarise; visit it and try it yourself! It's worth it.
