Many thanks for letting us stay and hopRead moree to return in the future. Hide

Great location for walking Calder Idris and coastal walks. Take the train to Barmouth (note return tickets for groups of 3 or more cheaper than singles) do check times before you travel. Very friendly and helpful owner. Will return one day.

We really enjoyed our time at the cottage. Everything that you need is supplied by the owner Debbie. She even left us a welcome pack which was very thoughtful. The cottage was warm and welcoming. The bedrooms spacious and comfortable. We all had a lovely time and saw some beautiful Welsh scenery.

A lovely, spacious, warm, immaculately clean cottage, equipped with all the items we could need in the kitchen. Tastefully decorated and packed with interesting features and toys & games for the young and older! The extra grab rails and shower chair in the downstairs bathroom offered my disabled father the independence that many other holiday cottaRead moreges miss. Thank you. Hide

We had a wonderful week in this fabulous property. It had everything we needed and more. The location was wonderful as it was only a few minutes walk from the beach and in a beautiful part of the World. I would definitely recommend the village and this property in particular.
