Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 30, 2012

Spent 3 nights with our 2 girls and dog in our quest to discover Mid/North wales and see the mountains! First hols with our dog and a real success as they are so dog friendly. Sarah is the most wonderful and helpful host, never too busy to help. She told us all the best places to walk and obtain the best landscape photos. It's a stunning location with plenty of local places and walks to discover, that actually you needn't venture far! The estuary is beautiful and with mountains behind you can climb to view the sea in one direction and lakes in the other! The service she and John provide is more like a hotel than B&B! The breakfast is great and when you arrive Sarah makes you a lovely pot of tea and cake - so kind after our long drive. The rooms are contemporary and full of artworks and great books and very good quality tea and coffee/hot chocolate facilites, yummy mint chocs and flowers from the garden. lovely touches, oh and great cotton bed linen too. Only one criticism, the rooms are much smaller than they appear in the photos and that was disappointing at first. BUT all the effort they put into your stay makes up for it! Thank you guys and we wish you every success with your business and hopefully we will make it back one day to stay in one of the yurts you also offer for rent!

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms overlooking the estuary not the road.

Just spent a fantastic week in one of the rental cottages at Graig Wen. The Mawddach Estuary is a stunning place (even given some of the worst weather on record!). The happily accommodated our dog, nice touch with the welcome "bone" and every time we said can we borrow or do you have, the answer was always yes.
Thank you for a great week, we will be back.

Stayed for 2 nights in Miri Mawr - for a birthday celebration. The facilities are great and the thoughtful touches such as fresh flowers and handmade chocolates make it really special.
The art work, beautiful Welsh wool throws and cushions contribute to an ambience of warmth and welcome. The breakfasts are delicious. Sarah also booked us in to a local restaurant both nights which we really appreciated.
Described as 'dog friendly' we had arranged for our dog to be with us and the welcome was extended to her with a chew awaiting her in the room as well as a towel for muddy paws!
The Mawddach Trail is just down the hill and the location is excellent for exploration.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the Estuary have a fabulous view

Stayed here for 2 nights in July 2012 in the Bran Room. It was a lovely room with a beautiful bathroom which included a freestanding bath and separate shower cubicle. The room had a beautiful view overlooking the Mawddach Estuary and was very peaceful. The bed was so comfy!

Our hosts were very friendly and really helpful in providing local information and bookings for evening meals etc. There were lots of thoughtful things provided i.e. dvds available to borrow, magazines and books and it had a very homely feel.

Breakfast was freshly prepared and very enjoyable with a good choice available.

The location is ideal, we travelled to Snowdon one day which took about an hour, and on another day we walked the Mawddach Trail which was great and gave an opportunity to visit the surrounding towns of Dolgellau and Barmouth.

Overall I would not hesitate to recommend the Slate Shed and would stay again if back in the area.

My first trip to North Wales and what a fantastic time I had! Our room was lovely, comfortable and clean. Breakfasts were delicious and enjoyed every morning bird watching! A perfect location with plenty to do, I had a fabulous beach trek and we enjoyed the Lakes, Portmeiron, Harlech Castle and the railway trip from Pothmadog. Our hosts were friendly and knowledgeable.We ate out every night at restaurants our hosts recommended and were not dissapointed! The only downside was the cost of the taxis into Dolgellau, £15 each way! On top of your meal this worked out to be a tad expensive!

Had a brlliant 3 night stay, great room and a good breakfast to start the day.

Sarah is very helpful and a mine of local information

.Anyone into birdwatching can't go wrong ...... non-stop activity on the feeders (inc Siskin & Redpoll) and a Yellowhammer on the hedge while you're having breakfast take some beating. Plus some good local walks.

It is an excellent base for touring ........ I visited the Dyfi Osprey Project which is only a 40 minute drive away.

The George 3rd a couple of mile down the road is well recommended for dining.

Just arrived home after a two night break at this extremly comfortable, dog friendly Bed and Breakfast.

Location, accomodation, breakfast and friendly atmosphere unbeatable.

The only disappointment was that after being out in the rain all day we had to go out to eat because we hadn't pre ordered a snack earlier in the day. We would have preferred to stay in the comfort of the B & B but instead we had to go out and face the elements again.

The reason we were given was that they had run out of bread but no alternatives were offered.

Otherwise 10/10.

We’re glad you enjoyed your stay here despite the wild weather. We don’t offer evening meals but are pleased to provide a table booking service at some of the excellent local pubs and restaurants. We make our own bread here so let guests know that packed lunches or snacks need to be ordered in advance and are subject to availability. We're sorry that on this occasion at 6.30pm on a Sunday evening we simply didn’t have any food in the house suitable to offer guests and local shops were shut. The pub 5 minutes drive away always has tables available on a Sunday and I believe provided a hearty meal which would have been far more appreciated than a tin of beans! We hope to welcome you again and with a bit of notice you can sample sandwiches with John's delicious home-made bread and Sarah's Dad's famous plum chutney!
