“Great stay”
Reviewed September 9, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed at this holiday cottage for a short weeoldend break with husband and our two year old daughter in the small cottage called the dairy which sleeps three. There is one single bedroom donwstairs and a double bedroom upstairs. The view from the conservatory is remarkable. The grounds are very well kept. The only thing we didn't know was that at the end of the garden there is a steep haha, so watch out if you have small children. It was nice to have tea towels, washing up liquid and loo rolls as basic essentials although I am not sure if some were left behind by other people. TV with DVDs were provided which was a nice thought. The area is lovely and tranquil, Fairbourne beach is a nice long sandy beach which does not seem to have many people, Barmouth is definitely more popular with its long expanse of pure sand. There is also a lovely flat trail for cycling or walking near Morfa Mawdach recommended by the owner of the place. The only pub of the village was actually not bad at all.
A thoroughly good stay. We will visit again.

Thank you very much for your review of Y Llaethdy. We're glad you enjoyed your stay in the cottage.
We do point out the haha to guests who have young children and haven't had any incidents of children falling down the haha in the 5 years that we've owned the cottages.
The description of Y Llaethdy in our website clearly states that the single bedroom is downstairs. The cottage does tend to be more popular with couples, but there is plenty of room for a cot in the upstairs bedroom/lounge. It is a very quirky cottage!

“Ideal location”
Reviewed June 6, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We stayed at the Y Llaethdy cottage which has wonderful views from the conservatory over the well tendered gardens and beyond to the sea with the evening sunsets across the Mawdach estuary being so memorable. .A warm welcome awaits at Pentrebach and we enjoyed our four nights stay over the Jubilee weekend. The cottage is suitable for 2--3 persons, with a small well equipped kitchen. The upper main bedroom is comfortable and clean, with a settee and easy chair for additional relaxation..Pentrebach is a lovely place to stay and an ideal location to enjoy this area of Wales.
