“Fantazing! (my new word for Fantastically Amazing)”
Reviewed February 19, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

I was one of a group of 32 who stayed at Pentrebach for a long weekend. The location is amazingly beatiful but the house/cottages and its facilities were outstanding. This is a weekend to be remembered by everyone from the youngest child to the oldest adult and even the two dogs who had so much fun running around the large garden and open fields. The pictures on the pentrebach website only do this place a fraction of justice. It is outstandingly beautiful, large, relaxing and fully equipped with everything you need. The adjoining cottages were equally fantastic and I would recommend this place to anyone. Thank you for a great stay Pentrebach.

“An amazing farmhouse with views to die for”
Reviewed January 31, 2013 for a stay in November 2012

We stayed in the large house for a re-union. We were amazed at the size of the house, but was it incredibly warm, cosy and very well furnished. There was a log fire waiting for us when we arrived! All the bedrooms were very comfortable and clean. Everyone had a good nights sleep after long wind -swept walks on the beach! there are Lovely views of the sea frrom the house . Mike and Wilma are very hospitable and did everything to make our stay memorable - which it was. We are already arranging another re-union in November. It is the best place!

Thank you very much for your very detailed and lovely review. It was a pleasure to welcome you and your friends for your hen party a few weeks ago.
We're sorry that the water ran out for you but we do have two large hot water tanks ready installed in the attic, just waiting for a plumber to complete the pipework, then there will be no problem with running out of hot water.
We hope to be able to welcome you and your friends, and their families , back to Pentre Bach again in the future.

“Wonderful accommodation in a beautiful part of Wales .”
Reviewed September 20, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

I have just spent a glorious few days staying in Pentre Bach's Pen y Lon cottage with family and friends. The cottage felt cosy and was very clean and well equipped and the sea views (from almost every window) were beautiful, particularly the spectacular sunsets!
The downstairs bedroom and bathroom were perfect for my disabled daughter and the whole of the downstairs area was wheelchair accessible, as was the garden.
During our stay the owners, who were very friendly and helpful kindly gave us a tour of the main house and other two cottages before the next guests arrived. I wasn't dissapointed ... the main house was amazing and I would love to spend time there with groups of friends and the other two cottages were delighful.
I can't wait to return!

“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!
