Wonderful, idyllic, calming cottage. The conservatory totally made the holiday. And the warmth of the cottage was perfect, I have no idea how the conservatory stayed so warm but it was heaven.

4 busy city people found tranquility and silence for a whole week. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your wonderful cottage. We all had a great time exploring, BBQing and relaxing in Northern Wales. Made it to the top of Snowdon as well... not a bad week at all

We love Cwm Hesgen! We had such a peaceful time in this beautiful location - watching the house martins and buzzards, enjoying 'our' stream, wading through the moss in the forest up the hill opposite, and using it as a base to explore the national park. Thank you so much. We'll be back!

I really enjoyed my stay in this cosy and beautiful cottage. When we arrived, the cottage was warm and ready to enjoy. We loved the idea that it was in the middle of nowhere away from London's bustle, surrounded by sheep and welsh hills. Enjoyed spending evenings by fireplace, the days exploring area whether by car or on foot. I couldn't have asked for a better Christmas with my fiancee and future mother-in-law. We would definitely like to come back one day. Thank you!

Had a wonderful time during New Years in this beautiful cottage. The views from the sun room are fabulous to gaze at, and the isolation has allowed us to have a very relaxed time. Being accompanied by the sheep has made out stay way more interesting! The cottage is well equipped and maintained, and we had all the facilities that we required provided for us. The owner was very friendly and welcoming! We thank you for letting us stay in this fascinating and cosy place, will definitely visit again soon!
