This cottage is perfect if you want seclusion. The view is beautiful and of you get the weather then sitting outside with a glass or wine is a must! All the equipment you need is in the cottage. The road is busy outside but you cannot hear it when in the property. Parking is just off the road and the traffic comes round the corner quickly but as loRead moreng as you are aware of this it should not be an issue. The bed is very comfortable and all the linen and towels are of a really good quality Hide

We very much enjoyed our stay and would certainly stay again. Of course, the good weather was on demand so sitting out at the front of the cottage, with its incredible views over the estuary made for a very relaxing break. We were regularly entertained by shoreline cattle in the fields opposite, as well as sight of the occasional Egret and Grey HerRead moreon. We also much appreciated the owners welcome and assistance when needed. Hide

The cottage was ideally to positioned to explore Snowdonia National Park. The location is very peaceful. Not too far from the coast if you want a walk on Barmouth beach.
