“Spectacular views & lovely family accomodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014 for a stay in August 2013

We had a really lovely holiday in this perfect location. I must admit, the first time we headed up the hillside following the directions we wondered what we had let ourselves in for, but it was well worth it!! We fell in love with the downstairs bedroom with it's cosy conservatory and amazing views! En-suite great and bed really comfy too.

There is loads to do in the area. A couple of obvious recommendations are Harlech castle including the nearby award winning ice cream parlour and the Royal St David's course for golf & lunch - the food was very good, generous portions and reasonably priced. Also recommended is the Snowdonia Riding Stables in Waunfawr which is very friendly and also reasonably priced. Finally the swimming pool in Harlech which was handy on a wet afternoon.

The property is very well equipped and there was plenty of space for everyone to be together or do their own thing - all in all a wonderful, memorable week, just ran out of time as there were plenty more things we wanted to do!

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

Wonderfully secluded and surrounded by dramatic landscapes and beautiful hilly walks. We were here for a family Christmas and the house comfortably slept 7 adults (with room for one more) and a six-month-old. The house was comfortable and had equipment to allow us to cook a full roast. We had a wonderful time.

“Very special and atmospheric place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I chose this place for a long weekend with friends visiting from the US. They requested something 'olde worlde.' This place was fantastic because it IS olde worlde BUT it has all the amenities one would want (other than say more trays and a salad spinner!).

We were there during the cold spell this summer and the heating was wonderful, the showers worked great, nice big stove to cook on. Wonderful crisp fresh all-cotton sheets and good mattresses.

There were plenty of dishes and cutlery and places to sit comfortably. (Sometimes in holiday cottages we are all eying the one small sofa or finding there are exactly the same number of plates as guests and that just does not work).

The views from the main bedroom in particular was just fantastic. The weather was misty - but quite romantic. One morning I did see Mt Snowdonia just rising out of the mist in the morning sunlight - just like the photos show. We could walk into town (1 mile) and on to the beach, or up the hill to the nearby look out point.

It was a truly memorable time and we all enjoyed it and would love to return sometime.
