Can't say enough about this wonderful place. You truly feel like you have your own private storybook cottage. Harlech Castle is steps away, and surrounding village is picture-perfect. Owners are fantastic. Food is outstanding. Only wish we could have stayed longer!

Delicious food and very pleasant, friendly service. We liked it so much we went back the next day to try something else from the menu. The Welsh Black steak, and the lobster soup were particularly outstanding. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed in Harlech and hadn't pre-booked accommodation. My husband stumbled across Castle Cottage and we were really pleased we stayed. The bed was really comfortable. The shower as the title suggests was fantastic. The cottage is located at the top of hill and so central to Herlech Castle, restaurants, take aways and the pub. The breakfast was the best... More

We stayed at the Castle Cottage for two days whilst in Harlech with our family. It's a great location, literally a stone's throw from the castle and off a steep medieval street near the town's centre. We were booked in the Harlech room, which accomodated a family. The room was outstanding. Uber-comfy bed, great bathroom, tasteful decor. The building has... More

We stayed here whilst passing through on a cycling holiday. The accommodation is first class. It is modern clean and comfortable. The owners were most helpful and even allowed us to keep our bikes in their office overnight. I would certainly stay here again. It is located right next to the castle.

A fantastic location opposite the castle and the view of the valley from the lounge is stunning. The team work effectively together to deliver clean comfortable superior quality accommodation and food. We had evening meal and breakfast both of which were excellent. Jackie, Glyn and family were excellent hosts who clearly are passionate about what they do.
