The photos didn't do justice to this beautiful property. The garden is one of the most beautiful private gardens we've ever seen and early mornings were spent watching the wildlife.

The house itself has everything you'd want for a stay, from the fully-equipped kitchen to the private parking.

Take a bottle of fizz (or several) and enjoy the hot tub.

Linda the owner was lovely. There when you wanted, but never intrusive. Chilled wine and biscuits waiting for our arrival.

We even got many days of perfect weather.

This is the first review I've ever written - a brilliant property.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments, actually the garden is run by the birds and squirrels I just provide the food, the "pecking order" is amazing watching the blackbirds patiently waiting in turn for the birdbath and the squirrels deferring to the woodpecker on the garden roller when it comes to food, seems to keep most visitors enthralled over breakfast in the conservatory.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed October 14, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We went for our wedding anniversary and was not disappointed ! We loved the hot tub and the surroundings. Linda (the owner) was so welcoming and left us some wine , chocs and milk. There is everything you could need in the cottage. Linda recommended the Italian restaurant which is a couple of minutes walk away - which we loved. Don't miss the local spar supermarket where there is a lovely independent butcher. We made sure we brought some sausages and lamb home with us

Would definitely book again

I booked this cottage for the weekend for my fiancée's birthday and without a doubt, it was the best birthday for both of us! Linda was flexible, lovely and very welcoming. We were left to our own devices and it really felt like a home. The kitchen was stocked with absolutely everything a chef could need. the hot tub was perfect for anytime of day and Linda went above and beyond with little treats! (Prosecco in the fridge, birthday card, decoration and chocolates on the pillows). The surrounding area of Barmouth was also beautiful cafes, restaurants, pubs, the perfect seaside town. Needless to say, we will be returning very soon for a repeat of the perfect weekend. Thank you Linda!

Whoa three on the trot returning you just made my day, thankfully you had told me it was a special occasion and I could help to try and make the occasion perfect. I have in the past ordered flowers in anticipation of a yes after a proposal (very nerve wracking I have to say but all part of the service) folks just have to let me know if I can help in any way. Glad it was all you had hoped for in this instance, see you soon. Linda :-)

“The perfect, idyllic getaway....a magical place!”

My partner booked Llwyn Ynn Cottage as a romantic birthday surprise, and it was everything we could have wished for and more. The cottage was snug and cosy with everything we needed and more (thank you for the wonderful "welcome pack" Linda!).The conservatory is fantastic, light and airy with a 180 degree view of the beautiful garden with its abundance of flora, fauna and wildlife, including squirrels and woodpeckers. Our dog Issy loved the freedom of the garden and didn't think it could get any better until we took the short walk leading to the river at the back of the property, then she was in absolute heaven, as were we! In three days we managed the up-river walk, the down-river-to-the-beach walk, the stop-at-the-pub-five-minutes-away walk, as well as lots of lazy time curled up in the ever so comfy chairs in the conservatory reading, checking our emails (excellent wifi connection during our stay) or simply gazing out at the garden. We have booked a ten night stay in January because we want to explore a little further afield whilst still enjoying the "feet up and chill" atmosphere of this wonderful little hideaway.

You have hit the nail on the head with the "feet up and chill" and I think that is what has bought you back for two breaks next year, its because you can do as much or as little as you want. I know my cottage grabs people so if they want a full on explore and conquer break or a chill and sleep until noon break its their choice, pub restaurants and river on the doorstep are just very nice to have extras, looking forward to your return in January. Linda :-)

“Relaxing holiday”
Reviewed September 21, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was our first stay a Llwyn ynn cottage and it won't be our last. Linda our host was very welcoming with a few extra treats. The cottage had everything needed for a relaxing stay wood burning stove, wifi, relaxing armchairs and the hot tub which was a welcome relief after a hard day walking. We recommend the Mawddach trail on bikes and the panorama walk and the torrent walk and the icing on the cake was the Italian restaurant which was a short walk away. The weather was great for our stay as well. Really enjoyed our holiday

“LOVELY WEEKEND”
Reviewed September 15, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have just enjoyed a long weekend in this lovely cottage and can only echo all of the previous comments. The cottage is in a great location for the beach and access to the surrounding area and is a peaceful little haven tucked away in a quiet residential area on the edge of the woods. It is a proper home from home with everything you need for a comfortable stay with the added extras of the hot tub, log burner and beautiful garden to enjoy. Linda is a lovely lady and clearly wants to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible and the gift basket of goodies along with the wine and cheese she had left for us was very appreciated. Would we recommend Llwyn Ynn .......definitely!!
