A lovely 3 bed cottage in a beautiful location. Has all the necessary equipment and wonderfully comfortable beds! The road next to the house is OK to walk on in the direction of Dolgellau down to the toll bridge as long as you are careful. A very relaxing holiday!

Reviewed by Marilyn, 21st September 2018

Location was beautiful with lovely views from all the windows and decking. The cottage is cosy with ample area to spread out. It provides easy access to all the sights of north and mid Wales. The treats to welcome us after a very long drive were special. Thank you.

It is a lovely cosy cottage to stay while we were exploring the North Wales. Will book again!

Superb estuary views, comfortable and well equipped. Excellent walks from the door (use OS Explorer OL 18) along the estuary and up into the hills along wooded rivers. George III pub at Penmaenpool is a brisk 15 minute walk away over toll bridge; after bridge closes to traffic there is a gate through for pedestrians. The only downside is that the pRead moreroperty is on a busy main road. All the walks begin along the road for a few hundred yards but there is plenty of verge so not a problem. Hide

Our holiday cottage had such a fabulous view and everything we needed to make not only a perfect base for exploring the beautiful surrounding areas but also a comfortable, homely retreat to look forward to at the end of our busy days.

Great location providing privacy and stunning views. Only a short car ride to many varied locations and activities. The cottage is fully equipped with everything a family needs. Highly recommend to anyone seeking to stay in the heart of Snowdonia.

The cottage is in a beautiful location overlooking the estuary. Located centrally, with easy access to all the main visitor attractions, as well as beautiful beaches, hidden beauty spots and a wide choice of places to eat out, takeaway or to buy in food to prepare in the cottage. Many thanks for the warm and friendly welcome!

Reviewed by Victor, 15th June 2018

A really good base for exploring North Wales but the cottage is located at the side of a busy road with no footpaths. If you want to take stroll on an evening you really have to take the car out. The only place to eat within walking distance is the George Hotel about a mile away along a toll road. There is a gate locked across this road at 18.30 whRead moreich you have to climb over. I hope this does not sound too negative as we had a really nice holiday for the two weeks we were here. Hide

The cottage was well equipped and clean, the owner was available on the phone. We had a lovely few days here, although a bit scary walking to pub as no footpaths near cottage and busy road
