“Our Favourite Place to Stay”
Reviewed July 12, 2009

We have returned to this B & B many times over the past few years and always had the best of service. You are welcomed with tea/coffee and home made cake and the large breakfasts are freshly prepared using mainly locally sourced ingredients. Jams, muesli, croissants etc are home made and set you up for the day. The content of the cooked course varies but is always delicious.

We particularly love the bedrooms - they are large and luxurious, and likewise the bathrooms. It is lovely to sit and read in front of the patio or balcony doors as the views are fantastic. You are situated immediately below the summit of Cader.

The quality of the walking is the best - the high level walks are great ( you can walk up Cader Idris from the accomodation) but the lower level walks are no less good. There is endless variety of walking from the doorstep and if you have not been to the area before then Olwen, the owner, is very helpful with suggestions and guide books etc.

The whole area around is completely unspoilt and the nearby estuary deserves its title of world heritage site.

In the evening there are a good number and variety of eating places within a short drive or the nearby pub provides good meals and beer, and you can walk there in 10 minutes.
