“A truly special place”
Reviewed November 3, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed at Hafod Cae Maen during the last weekend of October. What a fabulous house! The location is very special as is the house itself which has been painstakingly restored by the current owner.

The beauty of the location is that you do not need your car. Once you've done your shop you can put away your car keys. There are lovely walks around the headland and into Portmeirion which is just a few minutes away. If you do venture out, the heart of Snowdonia National Park is a short drive away.

And the house itself has everything you need. The kitchen is very well equipped with a huge dining table which cries out for dinner parties. My bed was so comfy I struggled to get out of it. If you do manage to leave your bed, the house has a lovely garden, and just spending lazy days in front of the fire in the library was a huge pleasure. There is a TV but we never switched it on!

Our weekend was such a nice getaway - the house is beautiful and couldn’t be located in a more special and tranquil place. Highly recommended!
