“Relaxing break”
Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

We stayed in the gatehouse for 4 nights for a pre Christmas break. The gatehouse has two floors, upstairs us the 2nd bedroom with 2 single beds, downstairs is the master bedroom, living, dining and kitchen area all open plan. There are stable doors leading to the bathroom and utility room and the upstairs bedroom. The house has underfloor heating, wall heaters and an electric fire. There is a TV and DVD player in the living area and the room had been decorated with Christmas tree and decorations which was a nice touch. The kitchen was stocked with tea, coffee, sugar etc but make sure you take milk if you want a cuppa on arrival.
Aberdovey is a short drive away, it is in walking distance for the average person but the roads are bit safe to do so. The beach is nice but due to the time if year shops and restaurants were closed so we travelled to Machynlleth to the Coop to get our main groceries, we had to self cater due to everywhere being closed but still had a nice relaxing break.
I would love to come back here again in the warmer months to explore the garden and the walk alongside the gatehouse as it was cold and dark whilst we were there.

Stayed December 2013, traveled as a couple

A beautiful farmhouse in a lovely location, very relaxing.
We stayed from the 2-6th January 2014.
The farmhouse is furnished to a very high standard with lots of extra touches that make it very homely and welcoming.
The kitchen is very well equipped with good quality utensils.
The views are lovely from most angles of the house and the balcony is a must for star gazers
(even on a winters night).
The bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds and the whole property is a treasure.
We will certainly recommend the farmhouse and gatehouse to family and friends.

Our second vist to the Farmhouse and just as good as the first,blessed with lovely Autumn weather which helped, cannot fault the property and we had a great friends get together, must recommend the Riverside Inn at Pennal for great food and made full use of the facilities at Plas Talgarth which was a great bonus, all in all a great stay, will hope to return in the Spring.

We stayed at the Gatehouse 25 - 27 October 2013. The property is great, very well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, stylish finish, gorgeous garden area. A very comfortable stay.

On the Friday night we went to the nearby Plas Talgarth leisure centre on the basis that temporary membership was available as a part of our stay. We had a very embarrassing experience. Upon arrival and announcing that we were staying at the address as advised by the proprietor, the staff looked awkward and advised the subscription had not been paid for some time, the proprietor wanted to pay only when he had guests staying (rather than a monthly or annual subscription as required) and they had been trying to contact him to sort to no avail. Despite this they let us in and we had a great couple of hours in the gym and pool, but it was awkward.

I have since contacted the proprietor who advised it was a mix-up. Even so, I hope no-one else experiences it.

Thankyou for your review , we are pleased you enjoyed the cottage for your brief stay and are sorry you had a problem with the use of the complimentary facilities we offer at nearby Plas Talgarth, our membership is used by many of our guests and we have not heard before of anyone being refused use....the management there assure us that as with any members the facilities are available for their use subject to a capacity limit.

First, whilst I have rated the Farmhouse as 4/5 I was in two minds about whether it should be 3/5. In my view, the property isn't "Average" but equally I don't think it is "Very Good", What I really wanted to say is that the property is "Good, but could easily be Very Good", which I hope comes through in the following review.

The location of the Farmhouse is very good. It is not walking distance to any local amenities (the nearest pub/shop etc is a good 5 minute drive in either direction) but provided you have enough cars this is not a problem. The view from the property out towards the estuary is nice and there is a nice view towards the trees from the sun deck. However, the first thing you see when you drive up to the Farmhouse is an extremely ugly partially completed breeze block building, which is also the first thing you see when you go out the front door. It is really not ideal. Similarly the garden leaves a lot to be desired and is certainly not really suitable for children.

Inside there are three double bedrooms - all ensuite - two living rooms, a dining room, downstairs WC and a kitchen. The accommodation is spacious and furnished to a high standard. Our party had only 4 adults and 2 infants so there was plenty of room to spread out. I'd say however that you wouldn't really want any more than 6-8 in your party, as although the snug could double up as a fourth bedroom it is nice to have that room as a permanent 2nd living space (especially if you have kids - we used it as a non-toy haven)!

Inside, the property is child friendly. Two high chairs and two travel costs were provided, which was appreciated. There were also stair gates.

The local area is lovely. Aberdovey and Tywyn are nice costal towns and the scenery is spectacular.

In terms of constructive feedback, I would suggest the following:

(i) There is no mobile signal at all in the property. There is wi-fi, but I would suggest that a landline be installed because it really is not good to be isolated with no phone signal when you are away with children.
(ii) The standard of cleaning could definitely be improved. Upon arrival the rug in the living room was covered in hairs and crumbs and certain parts of the kitchen (eg the oven and cooker hood) had not been cleaned properly.
(iii) When we arrived at the property there were no "basics" (eg bread, milk, eggs, etc). Having stayed in 3 or 4 similar properties in the last few years I would say that this is not the norm for a high-end property. It would be a nice touch if such basics were provided upon the guests' arrival, particularly as it is a drive to the nearest shop.

In conjunction with making improvements to the garden and the "building site", these minor improvements would, in my opinion, definitely elevate the Farmhouse from being "Good" to "Very Good". That said, we did have a nice time and we would recommend the Farmhouse to a friend.

I stayed in the Gatehouse last week ('til 31st August 2013) and the accommodation is lovely, with luxury furnishings and fittings, such touches make you feel welcome, valued and very comfortable. The small things make a huge difference, and make you want to return. As another reviewer said the property is quite close to the road, but such things are out of the owners control, the road isn't busy but it is fast, that said I wasn't bothered by this at all and I slept extremely well. The gardens are lovely, I didn't have any problems with my dog, she was always quite happy out there and never once wandered off. I have many happy memories of this property and no negatives at all. Thanks to everyone involved, the booking agent and the owner, your approach to everything ensured I had a lovely break.

The farmhouse was 1st class and a delight to stay in. The quality of the furnishings superb and alot of effort had gone into delivering every possible luxury that we needed. The bedding was beautiful and the beds top quality, with large ensuites in the 3 double rooms.My son was in the 'snug' where the king size sofa bed had also made up for our arrival . It was a large room including a t.v which was ideal for him.
The kitchen was brilliant for those who enjoy to cook.Every possible piece of equipment was there, all top quality. The china and glassware was good and plenty of it, not just the usual 1 per person.The american style fridge/freezer was great for size and good fun with an ice/cold water dispenser.Outside there was a super large bbq which cooked well and some excellent seating provided for our comfort.The outside deck situated on the first floor had beautiful views over the lake/estuary and was stunningly good for star watching as there were no street lights.
Aberdovey was ideal for families ,including crabbing from the jetty which was great fun.There are fabulous rides through the mountains and Dolgoch Falls are a must if its been raining , spectacular !!
Well done to the owners for providing such an excellent property !

A couple of small negatives- there is no grassed area which would be a problem with younger children as the back garden was slate shingle.There is a 'shell' of a building inherited by the owners which maybe developed. It is right next door and in our opinion would very much reduce the seclusion and impact on future holiday makers enjoyment
