The cottage was perfectly located for everything we wanted to see and do on our trip. The cottage is beautifully presented with absolutely everything you could possible need for your stay. The wood burner was great for creating a warm and cosy atmosphere. Janice and Mike were great hosts who were quick to respond to our questions and queries. Thanks for everything. CJ

We had a lovely stay, the cottage was clean on our arrival and the fabulous welcome basket was very much appreciated! The cottage is comfortable and well equipped, the owners were friendly and checked in with us to make sure everything was ok. Perthi- Uchaf is well situated to explore Snowdonia National Park and Anglesey, yet peaceful and quiet in its setting. We loved having the cows and calfs for our neighbours!
A cupboard or shelf for storing food would be the only slight improvement we would make, nevertheless, we would whole heartedly recommend Perthi Uchaf and would love to come again!

A lovely comfortable cottage with plenty of space for the family, it offered the perfect balance of easy access to the road network and a peaceful stay. We would certainly stay again!

What a setting! The cottage is in a lovely setting, the cows being your only direct neighbours. For anyone worried.. no, it doesn’t smell at all.
Michael and Janice live just 2 fields away and are wonderful hosts. Michael was great with local tips about where to go and the history of the cottage.
On entering the cottage, we saw the welcome hamper, which was amazing, not had such generosity from any other cottage we’ve stayed in before.
Perthi Uchaf itself is an ideal place to relax and getaway. Open the door in the lounge to see gorgeous sunsets… or just to see a cow or two!
Everything needed is supplied. We found it very comfortable and well equipped. 3 of us are 6 footers and we were worried by a previous review. No need. There are a couple of doorways to duck a little but the ceiling heights are all good. And we could a use the showers with no problem.

There is so much to do and see in the immediate area and in Anglesey. Perthi Uchaf is an excellent point to reach everything.

In about 17 years of picking holiday places with the family, this is only the 2nd cottage and location we would like to return to.

Thank you Janice and Michael.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Perthi-Uchaf. The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable. The location was wonderful and so peaceful. The mountains and lakes are stunning and I will miss the scenery when I return to very flat East Anglia. Would recommend this cottage, and hope to come back soon to lovely Snowdonia.

The cottage is lovely – great size and very well appointed. The location is beautiful and in a good place to explore so many sights while there. It was very nice to wake up in such a quiet place with just the cows for company.
The owner visited us to make sure all was satisfactory and told us the history of the cottage which was very interesting. I would definitely recommend.

We had a lovely weekend, the cottage is idyllic & was easy to find with the satnav. Our second trip to North Wales & second time to book with Dioni. We crossed the beautiful Menai Bridge & visited Beaumaris on Sunday & enjoyed fish & chips & ice cream. The weather was gorgeous & Anglesey was so pretty, we traveled North to Cemaes Bay & saw jade green rocks & ducks on the beach. On the way home we stopped for photos at Llynon Mill, a working wind mill. On Monday after a very comfortable night, so lovely to hear the cattle in the morning. Hope to visit with you again x

Peace, quiet, seclusion. This is a beautiful and historic house restored with great care by the owners who have maintained many original features. Janice and Michael could not have been more helpful. There is very ample space in each of the rooms and the beds were supremely comfortable. the Wi-Fi worked well according to my teenage kids. My son is 6ft 2″ – everything was too low for him such as doorways and mirrors. Families who are all over 6ft might struggle. This is a small detail however as everything else was lovely. Thank you for a pleasurable stay.

Fabulous base for touring in Snowdonia. Very well equipped, spacious holiday cottage with bags of character. We received the warmest Welsh welcome from Janice & Micheal & loved watching the new calves, free range chickens and beautiful Collie – Meghan . Freshly laid eggs available every morning – best I’ve ever tasted!
