We enjoyed ourselves immensely and hope to be back one day!"

The weather has been typical British, a bit of rain and sunshine, which provided us with the opportunity to do lots of walking and also visit many of the wonderful villages and castles, some of note are Harlech, Conwy and Caernarfon.
We visited Portmerion and had a wonderful meal at Castell Deudraeth.
We climbed Snowdon using the Llanberis Path and despite the rain, managed to do it in 3 hours 30 mins.
Thank you for a wonderful stay!"
Adele & Daniel - London , Jul 2011

Thanks Marie & Ray for your warm welcome"
Kev & Carolyn - York , Jul 2011
"A lovely little cottage, home away from home. Had a few teething problems on first night but all propmptly sorted by Ray. Weathre was OK, some sunny spells, some really rainy spells!

Thank you for a relaxing stay."

Lorna & Harun - Loughborough , Jul 2011
"Although the weather was typical for British summertime on Sat - rain & more rain...! We retreated back to this cosy cottage after venturing out in the mist - nothing however can dampen the beauty of this part of our Isle.
However, again typical British Summertime, Sunday was a scorcher - isn't variety supposed to be the spice of life? So off we went to quirky and beguiling Portmerion & then off to the expanse of Harlech beach where our toddler could let off more steam - we even managed lunch on our private sun terrace!
Marie & Ray, the cottage is a delight - the location glorious, the tranquility wonderful & the cottage itself is cosy on these cold wet days & a cool retreat on those hot days. Thank you."

Neil & Jennifer - Leeds , May 2011
"A VISIT TO THE COACH HOUSE in The Vale of Ffestiniog,
We came, we saw, we conquered,
At least that was the plan,
To come and climb a mountain,
All talk of work was banned.
We nearly didn't get here,
Our family of three,
Jo`s navigating skills were questioned,
Well, questionable actually!
Our haven was The Coach House,
Of heaven a little piece,
Amongst the trees, the streams, the hills,
We found soul quenching peace.
We visited the willow wolf,
Howling to the skies,
Watched the looping train,
Listened to birds cries.
Bess, the dog, was in heaven,
The day we chose to climb,
The highest peak in Wales,
And had a whale of a time!
Our adventures continued,
Aboard a 6 man raft,
Crashing through white water,
An adrenalin-full laugh!
We explored pretty Portmeirion,
Harlech beach & Harlech town,
Not one thing about our holiday,
Made us want to frown.
Big thanks to Ray & Marie,
Your beautiful cottage made our stay,
Perfect in every single way,
We hope that we`ll be back some day."
Chris, Jo & Bess - Chichester , Apr 2011
"We decided to have a few days away and looked for somewhere tranquil and relaxing. We have to say the Coach House has ticked all the boxes. We have enjoyed lazy mornings, long walks and even on the day the weather was particularly inclement we managed to find some dry weather on Anglesey - and even a bit of sunshine!
The cottage itslef is very well equipped, warm and cosy and the hosts Ray & Marie were very welcoming and keen to ensure that all was well."
Ron & Marie - Worcestershire , Apr 2011

We have really enjoyed walking in the local area and have found this corner of Wales to be simply stunning! There is so much to see and do that I'm sure that when we come back to the UK, we'll make it a priority to come and have a weekend away in Wales - in The Coach House!"
Bonnie & Darryl - Vancouver , Apr 2011
"What a lovely romantic weekend break we have had in this beautiful cottage and in such a beautiful setting. The cottage was furnished with everything we could have asked for, along with a really comfy bed, fully equipped kitchen and cosy lounge/dinging room. We spent our time visiting the beautiful Port Meirion, travelling on the Ffestiniog steam train to Port Madog and visiting the Dinorwic Hydro Electric Power Station all of which were a real treat. Ray and Marie were on hand to answer any of our queries, and we felt thoroughly welcome and at home for the whole of our stay. Rays advice on getting the bus back from Port Madog came in really handy thanks! The complementary bottle of wine was the perfect welcoming touch. We will definitely recommend this little oasis to all of our friends and would certainly come again. "

We have had an amazing week and our only complaint is that it has ended much, much too soon - there are so many places and walks we haven't done ...we just ran our to time!

Sue & Ian - Dinas Powys , Sep 2010
"What a beautiful valley and what a lovely cottage in stunning surroundings! We found it hard to leave the Coach House each day to explore the area because it was so peaceful sitting over a long breakfast on the sun terrace. However, when we did leave there was so much to see and explore. One of the highlights was the Ffestiniog Railway. It is a memory we will take back with us. It was lovely walking along the river and up the side of the valley for some magnificent views. After a day out in the mist and rain it was lovely to come back to the cosy Coach House where we could relax and watch Prisoner videos!. Thanks Ray and Marie for such a warm welcome!"
Lou and Rob - London , Aug 2010
"Dear Marie & Ray. Thank you for a lovely stay. We had a lovely visit and Evan really enjoyed the train rides.

Thanks a lot for that!"
Ewa, David & Sophie - South Devon , Aug 2010

"A Lovely break away, lovely little cottage. Great to be able to bring the dog with us. Lovely walks, nice pub on the corner. Snowdon was a challenge, but glad we did it! Very peaceful here at the cottage, nice to sit out on the terrace. Lovely gesture welcoming us with wine. All in all a lovely, relaxing break. Would definately like to come back. Thank you."

"Had a lovely welcome from Ray and Marie even though we were an hour early. By the way, thanks for the wine. Great little cottage with everything we need. Love the dishwasher. Vale of Ffestiniog is a great base for touring Snowdonia, with Snowdon itself only 40 mins drive away and Caernarfon only 10 mins further. Love the idea of maps of the surrounding area"

"A really fantastic place, tranquility at its best! Lovely roaming walks around, Oscar really enjoyed them. Some lovely pubs around at close hand with nice food and cheap drinks, just what you need after a hard days climb at Snowdon! The scenery and surroundings of the cottage are picturesque and show nature at its full capacity during the summer months. The cottage itself is modern but homely, a real credit to its owners Marie & Ray who were always at hand to help should you have any problems, which is very reassuring. Will recommend to everyone!!!"

"Really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful apartment with its lovely gardens and views. It is equipped to a very high standard and with everything you could possibly need. We have had a peaceful and relaxing time here, weather a bonus. Lovely walks by the river at the bottom of the garden. Cadwallers in Porthmadog do very nice lunches & cakes. Thank you Marie & Ray for your walm welcome. We will be back!"
Val & Alex Begg - Bolton , May 2010
"The apartment is a haven of tranquility, full of character and tucked away in beautiful gardens, but with easy access to the A487, a pub & close to great walks. The private sun terrace is a real bonus. Ray & Marie went out of their way to make us feel welcome on our special day."
