“The best self catering cottage we have ever stayed at”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014
person found this review helpful

We were met by the Owners on our arrival who welcomed us and our small dog for our week long stay at Ghillie`s Cottage. A welcome starter pack was laid out on the kitchen table, which was very much appreciated, The local shop/post office is a 2 minute drive down the road, if there was anything we had forgotten to pack, but there was no need as the owners had pretty much thought of everything. The first thing you notice is the peace and quiet on this delightful River Dee setting with only the variety of different birds singing, breaking the silence,we were lucky enough to see a Kingfisher during our stay and spent many an hour sitting in the Garden, and sitting in our very own Hot Tub,wishing the week never to end, The weather was warm and sunny the week we were there, so we never got to light the Logburner but it would be very cosy during a winters stay with an ample log supply to keep you warm set in the original inglenook fireplace. Good size TV`s in the living room and bedroom and Internet which was very easy to log on to All the rooms were tastefully decorated. The cottage is very central with a short car drive to Bala Lake, and Llangollen and about 35miles from Barmouth, If you like fishing the, River Dee is at the bottom of the garden, and has Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Grayling. which the owner would be more than happy to give you more information on. We will be spending many more holiday`s at Rivercatchers, it`s not often you find your perfect holiday but we know we have found our`s.
