It is the little things that make the difference and one of my favourite parts of the week is going through the recent feedback from our guests. They obviously speak highly of the holiday cottages, the landscape, the views and everything that Snowdonia has offer. But one part of their stay that they always rave about are the homemade cakes that some our cottage owners make for new arrivals. No shop bought cakes here, just traditional, welsh home baked delights that are so light and fluffy, they melt in the mouth.

Whether it’s a victoria sponge, a lemon drizzle cake or a traditional Welsh Bara Brith there is nothing better than arriving at your destination, putting on the kettle and settling in for your holiday with a lovely cuppa and piece of homemade cake. Here are our Top 5 Cottages With Home Made Cake…

Moelfre, Self Catering Barn Dyffryn Ardudwy, named after the mountain behind the cottage, is a one bedroom barn conversion on a working welsh hill farm. It’s difficult for me to be objective when describing Moelfre as it’s one of the self catering cottages that we let out ourselves here at Byrdir. But I hope you’ll agree when I say they’re nicely furnished and decorated. We’re certainly very proud with the way they’ve turned out.
