Really well maintained and comfortable house equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Great location, spent our time exploring the numerous beautiful beaches and woodland around this area. Would recommend and hopefully will be back again soon!
Have camped at Shell Island previously but wanted some home comforts whilst further exploring this beautiful part of Wales... perfect home from home! Made welcome on arrival with some homemade biscuits and a few essentials in the fridge. House is spacious and tastefully decorated. Big comfy beds and house is impeccably clean. Lovely to curl up in front of the log fire in the evening. On the one occasion we couldn't park directly outside the property, parked in the pub car park which was less than 2 minutes walk away (does a decent breakfast if you can't be bothered cooking!) Will definitely be returning to Meirion house next year.
We booked Mierion House for a weeks holiday with my parents, and 2 dogs, we chose the property for the location, size, local amenities and that it was dog friendly, although we did have to pay extra to take 2 dogs, but it did not appear to be a problem.
The booking process was straightforward and the staff helpful. I was contacted a few days before by the owner with key location information.
We arrived late in the afternoon, and it was raining (as it did most of the week), the parking was not ideal, it was in front of the property on the main road which was very busy most of the time, the space was not guaranteed, and the thoughtless parking of the adjoining residents and their visitors meant that we had to park in the pub car park a few times as the space was taken.
We were really pleased with the cottage, it was clean, bright, comfortable and well equipped, they had even left 2 dog bowls for us to use. There was also a pint of milk in the fridge, and some home made shortbread which my mum enjoyed.
The bathroom was big and very clean, and the bedrooms were all well furnished and the beds were very comfortable with lovely bedding. My parents thought that the bedrooms were cold but there were heaters all over the house for a boost if required. The lounge was a good size with 3 big comfy sofas with throws if needed. There was a real fire but we did not need to light it as it was not that cold, but I would imagine it would be lovely in winter. The kitchen has everything we needed but we ate out mostly.
We visited the local Pub the Victoria which was great, we went to Shell Island, Portmadog, and the beach there too. Harlech Castle was only a couple of miles away, and we also visited the beach at Barmouth. We would have visited Portmierion but it did not allow dogs so that was out. On the whole it is a very dog friendly area and we had plenty of good walks, and the dogs loved the sea.
A great base to explore this beautiful area, and we would love to visit again.
We loved this house; it is stylish, comfortable and well equipped. Llanbedr is a pretty little village very close to Shell Island and several other wonderful sandy beaches safe for swimming. We loved walking by the river and even saw otters playing in the water. Within minutes you can walk from the house through unspoilt ancient woodlands and up into the range of hills behind the village. It is close to Harlech and also within easy drive to Criccieth, Portmadog, Barmouth, all lovely coastal towns.
This house is perfect with everything you could need for a great holiday. The owners have obviously put a lot of thought and energy into the property and it really shows
.Its location is ideal for exploring this part of Wales and there is so much to see and do.
We stayed here as a family including the dog and thoroughly enjoyed the week. We will return!!
Having been a regular visitor to the near by Shell Island for many years, it was a pleasure to spend a few days exploring the area from this beautiful home.
Packed with all the amenities you could need Merion House is in a great location and has plenty of space. With two double bedrooms to choose from and two single bedrooms as well we'll definitely be back with all of the family.
The house is clean and tastefully decorated with lovely little touches that bring a sense of fun. A small selection of books on the history and myths of north wales and a flat screen tv can provide indoor entertainment if needed. The open fire is a wonderful feature to warm up cold winters nights and we loved it.
The house is a stones throw from beach, mountain, river and forest so we found lots of lovely walks to keep us occupied. We would recommend this place to anyone and will certainly come back soon.
That we bought it! That's right we loved the house, the area and so put in an offer! Llanbedr is amazing, this house is nestled in the centre of the village only a stone's throw from the two great pubs, beaches and Mountains! We stayed with family and friends and were not disappointed. Now we are offering our new home for rental as well as living there part time - The house has had a completr make-over with latest appliances, a new coat of paint, new furniture and the finest linens - making this place a real Gem! We hope you enjoy yourselves....
