This is a well presented property with excellent facilities and a very warm welcome. Some nice touches added to the overall experience of the stay - chilled water, range of teas, coffees, biscuits and sweets in the room. Breakfast choice was excellent and the DIY toast gave the opportunity to have a nice warm slice when you wanted it. The... More

We have stayed at Gwaenynog in the B&B before and thought the rooms were very modern, comfortable and the breakfast great however this time we decided to go up and camp. The campsite's facilities are very nice, clean & modern, Fiona even got us a pallet to pop our BBQ on so we could have it next to our tent... More

Would recommend for anyone wanting to escape for a few nights, relax and forget about life. The views and walks locally are worth the visit alone, the campsite is very clean and tidy with plenty of room to pitch. We took our dog who was allowed to roam, he loved it!!

For us, the perfect place to stay for our visit to Barmouth, Welshpool and Lake Vyrmwy. Very professional couple running this B&B, with an excellent eye for detail. Excellent food and very comfortable bed.

Thanks for your review of us - we're glad you enjoyed your break in these Welsh Hills. We think the shower is perfectly adequate, as to my amazement my 92 year old Dad has managed it, despite 2 hip replacements, but also it can accommodate me (Fiona!) and therefore is plenty big enough... ;-) Hope to see you again.

I cannot praise this farmhouse enough, the service was second to none and the beds were just so comfortable and all set in a beautiful location in the welsh hills, food was great and they even catered for my wife who is coeliac.

Another wonderful warm welcome as we got out of the car. Stayed in a different room to our last visit but still done to the same excellent standard and just as comfortable. Wonderful welsh farmhouse breakfast cooked to order (not pre cooked and heated up). Enjoy watching the wonderful range of birds feeding as you eat breakfast. 5 stars is... More

Very enjoyable stay in an undiscovered & quiet part of Wales.Very comfortable bed in a comfy room. Great breakfast. Fiona & Norman were great hosts and Norman even gave us a lift to Lake Vyrnwy to start our walk. Book a room - you won't be disappointed.

Thanks for your review of us. Glad you got to appreciate why we moved here! It is an undiscovered gem, pretty and full of assorted bird & wildlife. We're happy to offer a lift so guests can do linear walks - once breakfast is over of course! And from what others tell me, that section from Lake Vyrnwy toward us... More

Simply amazing stay. Five starts in my book. The proprietors have thought of every detail. Very well organised. Comfortable room and bed, and scrumptious breakfast with a very wide choice to suit all tastes. This is a very under-rated part of Wales. Very beautiful countryside.

Wow - thank you very much for saying such nice things about your stay with us. I'm glad you enjoyed your breakfasts - we've tried to make sure that everyone would find something!

Very welcoming and extremely helpful. Fiona sorted out somewhere for us to eat and taxis, and also somewhere to park our motorbikes. Lovely breakfast as we'll and Fiona even did us an early breakfast on one day when we had to leave early. Thank you
