The cottage was clean & well equipped, The owners lived next door and gave us a warm welcome. They were very helpful. There is so much to do nearby that we struggled to fit it all in - castles, beaches, holiday towns, walks, quaint villages ...
The only thing we didn't like was driving up the very narrow, winding lane to the cottage as we worried about meeting someone coming the other way - although we never did.
Peace and quiet!

Small, but all you need for a couple! Lovely little garden. Owners couldn't do enough. Everything supplied - tea, coffee, hot chocolate, scones, butter, jam and cream. Was lovely to come back and make up the fire and settle down after a long day!

The cottage was delightful, wildlife in abundance and quaint and homely. Paddy and Chris the owners enhanced our stay with their company. Birthday cake on my birthday. Perfect location close to Shell Island and Barmouth. Wonderful scenic drives in the location. Highly recommend and can't wait to go back.
Great Place to Relax

I know this area from holidaying when I was a child and it is unchanged over the last 30 years. The cottage is really quaint but very well equipped and it forms a fantastic base for an activity holiday. Cycle route 8 runs past the front door, but be warned, the roads are steep and challenging. There is easy access to other great days out such as the cycle trail along the Mawddach Estuary from Barmouth, walks around Llandanwg Beach or the Rhinog Hills, or a trip to climb Snowdon. There are good amenities in the village with pubs, a restaurant and small convenience stores. The hosts are very friendly and helpful but unobtrusive. An excellent break!
A cosy retreat

The owners were great - not intrusive, but there if necessary - the cottage and garden are gorgeous with everything necessary to make it a wonderful stay - perhaps a little settee would be more comfortable than two chairs, but that is all I can think of - the only thing that could be a problem for some people is the lane to the cottage which is very steep

A tidey little cottage with great veiws. the owners live next door and could not be more friendly.The food at the local pub is of a high quality,and its not far to walk.It is however a steep return trip. I enjoyed my stay and would recomend this venue to any couple.
