We stayed at the slate shed for a weekend after we got married in August. Was wonderful, the ladies on reception were wonderful, very friendly and helpful. Loved the dogs and cat residents too so adorable and friendly especially Grace the dog who looks grumpy but loves a good tummy rub. 😀 We stayed in Miri Mawr, which was very... More

We had an amazing time here, we stayed in the B&B which was just how we imagined it to be. I'm gluten free and was more than catered for. Great place. Was lots to keep us busy in the surrounding areas. The blue lake well worth finding.

Stayed one night. Enjoyed a day playing pitch and put and walking to Barmouth, with a boat and steam train back. The house was comfortable, with a fabulous room and a stunning ensuite, with bath tub for two. We ordered takeaway curry from Dollgelau and ate it outside watching a glorious sunset overlooking the estuary, on plates provided. Enjoyed fine... More

I did a lot of research looking for a site with a great location, good reviews, on the ground campfires, and great views. We booked for 4 nights and headed off. Before heading out the weather looked miserable but we went anyways and upon showing up, was glad we did. Site was pretty much exactly as I had pictured and... More

Thanks so much for your thoughtful feedback! We were fully booked during your stay in the school summer holidays so we're glad you still felt you had enough breathing space. Outside of peak season campers often have a whole field to themselves here! We're glad that you enjoyed your camping trip and hope to welcome you back again in sunnier... More

I was a disappointed to arrive at such a beautiful area to see our pitch which was slightly squashed alongside about 5 other cars and tents on a sort of dirt track. No open areas for our children to run and be free nearby since there were cars coming and going. There is also a fairly noisy and major road... More

We're sorry that your camping trip did not meet your expectations. It sounds like you would have preferred to pitch on our lower tent camping fields rather than at the top of the site near the vans. Our own Graig Wen web site does describe clearly that there are two quite different areas for tent camping. On the car-free lower... More

We have been visiting Graig Wen for six years and have both camped and stayed in a self catering cottage. It is a wonderful location overlooking the Mawdach Estuary. Sarah and John and all the staff are friendly and welcoming and the facilities perfect for a family holiday. We just keep going back we love it!

We booked this room hoping for a bit of luxury, at £130 a night we had high hopes. The bed was massive and very comfy, however we were disappointed that the roll top bath was out of action (the hosts took £10 off the total bill for this). I had hoped for a soak after a long days walking. The... More

We're glad you enjoyed you stay here and the breakfasts. We apologise again for the blip with the bath and were relieved that you also had a power shower in your room. Unfortunately, in our rural area, getting a plumber and a replacement part here at the same time can take a day or two. Happily the bath is now... More

With picturesque views of the mawdach trail and the estuary from the decking outside the yurt we stayed in. Filled with everything you'd ever need to have a real glamping experience, wood burning stove, sheep skin rugs, animals grazing all around, the owners dogs and cat are friendly and always roaming around! Would highly recommend the small yurt to anyone... More

Very clean and homely B&B! All the extra bits like access to the lounge when hosts aren't using it, excellent breakfast, books to read, honesty bar, toiletries in the room all make for a comfortable and relaxed stay. John & Sarah are excellent hosts and the location is great for hiking, biking, easy access to nearby villages like Dolgellau and... More

An absolutely terrific campsite. The panoramic pitches are genuinely that, with an outstanding view out over the estuary! There are so many nice touches. The honesty shop, the extremely well stocked camp store, the BBQ's and bikes for hire, the communal camp fire area, clean facilities and nice people. Brilliant. I'll be back!
