The accommodation is over four floors and is larger than it looks from the outside.
Theres a new dressing table for getting ready for an evening out.
Fully equipped kitchen which we hope has everything you need.
The kitchen has a roomy dining space with a table which opens out for more dining comfort.
The paddle staircase up to the attic room.Note: Not suitable for elderly or very young.
Up the paddle staircase into the attic room.
The attic room. Teenagers just love it!
Enjoy beautiful sunsets.
Fancy Christmas away this year, or maybe a short break when all the fuss is over?
Special occasion? How about wine and chocolates? Just let the owner know.
Stable Door - ideal for hot summer days and keeping pets and children safely inside.

“Lovely location ”
Reviewed February 13, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Cottage is well equipped, lovely accommodation that is on 4 floors, it has an electric shower which tend to be less powerful but it was adequate, comfortable bed, only gripe double bed could do with a king size quilt as seemed small. Rest of our stay was great.

Lovely cottage the photos don't do it justice. I brought everything but the kitchen sink because it was Christmas but i really didn't need to. The cottage is very well equipped. The towels are lovely and thick. teatowels to grater to fruit bowl provided. You really only need to bring what you require to eat. The cottage warms up really fast. We had a lovely stay beautiful scenery right near the beach. Lots of places to visit great place.Very qwerky and traditional loved it!
I hope to stay again!

“Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed December 22, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

As a family, we have been travelling to Barmouth for a fair few years now. We loved our stay in Arden House this year. Perfect location for the centre of Barmouth, with shops, pubs and restaurants literally on the door step.
The house itself is lovely and cosy, warms up quickly and has everything you need.
Can't wait to stay again!
Thank you Adrian

We love Barmouth and this is a perfect place to stay!
The cottage is very cosy and we felt at home straight away.
All the facilities were as described and our teenager loved her attic room via the paddle staircase.
I would have appreciated wifi, but my husband was glad to be away from it all for a change......

We decided against installing wifi ,however,there are local BT wifi hot spots to use ,which is what we do when we go because we use our BT password from home to get the wifi .
If you aren't a BT customer with Internet you can pay as you go ?

“Delightful well equipped cottage”
Reviewed July 29, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This cottage has been well renovated and is nice and cosy. The kitchen is well equipped and the utility room is a real bonus. The location is good - shops, cafes, restaurants, beach and station all within a couple of minute's walk. There are many opportunities for good walks and beautiful train rides. A car really isn't necessary. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to return.

“Comfortable and convenient for travelling by train and with extra homely touches.”
Reviewed June 25, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Very convenient for travelling to and from on railway. Liked the extra homely touches and the nice extras like a welcome basket, use of umbrella,sewing kit, dog bowls, bench outside to sit in the evening sun. Town itself has good food shops so if you travel by train stocking up is easy - the nearest food shop even loaned me a trolley so I could get the main shop 'home" easily. Home is the right word as you can quickly feel settled here. Good pub nearest the bridge was also a bonus for our stay.
One or two small cleaning issues which the owner assures will be passed on to the cleaner and remedied. Very quick and easy to contact owner who responds almost immediately to issues. Very friendly and helpful.
Easy internet access would be a bonus but there are Internet caf€s nearby. We did get on Internet in end.

We always welcome constructive criticism ,if we aren't aware of any issues then we can't put things right for the next guests that stay.We always endeavour to respond promptly to guests queries and issues with the cottage because if we were staying somewhere we would expect that same courtesy ourselves.
