A great location, the accommodation was exactly what we wished for the hot tub was a very welcome bonus local pub the Dudley was good for a bite to eat , our only downside was going for a peaceful break was broken up by a young party who made quite a bit of noise but as it's the kids school holiday we would never return during that period of school break j
We stayed here for a week with our 2 dogs. The cottage itself has been finished to a incredibly high standard and all the tiny details have been thought through. This helps it to be very 'homey' and we had everything we needed. The setting is amazing, all you can hear is the river and sometimes some sheep. We had many enjoyable evenings sat in the garden of hot tub just listening to the river. The staff were lovely and looked in on our dogs so we could go out for lunch without them which was an unexpected bonus! We are already planning our next trip back, this time with all the family!
We have just returned from 5 nights in ghillies cottage. It was exactly what we had been hoping for. A beautiful cosy cottage for two located just on the outskirts of snowdonia. The cottage had lots of little extras that are often lacking from holiday cottages such as essentials in the kitchen and the wonderful welcome basket with local milk, eggs and bread. The hot tub was fantastic and a little BBQ too. We ended up driving a lot as the things we wanted to do were a fair distance away such as climbing snowdon(about an hour) and the coast. However, we also did one of the walks nearby suggested in the welcome pack which was great.
Overall we had a fantastic holiday and we would definitely recommend this cottage!
This is a hard review to write - I'm not sure I can do justice to quite how special Rivercatcher is
The accommodation is of an exceptionally high standard, thought has been given to everything. The cottage is incredibly well equipped, and luxuriously and comfortably decorated and furnished. It is a cottage for 2, but it feels comfortably large enough, while also feeling cosy and romantic. There is a large garden with patio and hot tub, and a lawned area. The hot tub is fantastic, it has privacy from the other cottages and a beautiful view to the river.
All the grounds on the Rivercatcher site are beautifully maintained. There is a great games room and a laundry equipped with two Bosch washing machines and two tumble dryers. It is a beautiful place, but works so well practically too. The location is ideal for exploring Snowdonia. There are lovely local walks (details are provided in the guest folder), and Snowdon, Zipworld and the beach at Barmouth are all just over an hour away. Incredible place, can't fault it. Desperate to return.
A week of lovely weather in a beautiful setting. Great restaurant (Michelin starred) close by. good pub and restaurant (closed when we were there) in the village. Crockery needs at least 4 of everything. Boiler from next door noisy. Aled was a great help. Good walking locally. Fantasic setting in North Wales for Bala etc. as a Cestrian, it was so nice to be back in part of unspoilt Wales. Cottage very comfortable. we are experienced cottagers and this is in our top five (and the most expensive!) but it was my wife's 65th Birthday!
