“Amazing cottage, Stunning location”
Reviewed 11 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We stayed in Ghillies cottage for 3 nights at the beginning of February and we could. Or have had a more perfect weekend. The cottage has everything you need and a real warm and homely feel. The welcome basket and blanket for the dog was a lovely touch.
The location is perfect with stunning views. We made use of the walking tips in the info pack and added some adrenaline to our weekend by going to Zip World. The hot tub was a great way to relax after busy days out.
I cannot recommend this place enough, although I would love to keep it for myself. We will most definitely be returning!

“Our Ghillies Cottage Stay”
Reviewed 10 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Just had a fantastic 2 day stay with my husband and our 2 little pooches and it met all our expectations and more.. beautiful property in stunning surroundings we felt like we had escaped the rat race..
From the log stove the high end touches and amazing hot tub we didnt want to leave you have thought of everything even the welcome hamper and blankets for our pooches i could go on and on..
My only criticism which isnt really one more personal preference would be a feather pillow choice but like i said thats because we prefer that..

We cannot wait to return thanku for everything..weve made amazing memories to treasure of our time here

“A wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 30 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

The cottage we stayed in was so comfortable .the log fire lovely to come back to after a day out, also the hottub was very relaxing even though the weather was cold. Cottage very well equipped and a lovely welcoming pack. An extra plus was they are dog friendly. Rivercatcher is in beautiful surroundings, we were lucky with the weather but if it had been rainy ,there are plenty of books and games in the cottage and a Smart television with Netflix , not forgetting the lovely games room.

We booked to stay here for Christmas 20th to the 27th DEC. The cottage was excellent with everything you could need. Decorated to a very high standard, also we had the best sleep we've ever had whilst being away. The views are spectacular and there's so much to do in the surrounding areas. You've also got your own hot tub which is a bonus. The welcome pack upon arrival was of a high quality and all was sourced locally. You've got the river Dee behind the cottage and lovely scenic walks.. I'd recommend Rivercatcher to all my friends and family. Thank you for an enjoyable and relaxing week away........

“Just perfect...”
Reviewed 11 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Arrived for a short break to celebrate a birthday, I had high expectations having seen the pics and reviews online - I was not disappointed. It was perfect. Beautiful cottage equipped with everything you could possibly need and the welcome basket full of local produce was a really nice touch not to mention the bottle of prosecco we returned home to one afternoon after Jen had noticed we were celebrating. Location was great for exploring the local area and Snowdonia and soaking in the hot tub underneath the stars was amazing.
