The house was amazing, the views were beautiful. We went with our children and their spouses it was the perfect getaway, nothing was too far away and you could do as much or as little as you wanted. The house was lovely and big so although there was eight of us it never seemed crowded. The caretaker was very friendly and helpful and just a couple of minutes in the car to Porthmadog for groceries, pub etc. Will be back.

“Everything you could wish for”

Everything about this cottage was perfect. It was beautifully furnished and such a great size. We stayed here for a family get together with 8 adults. Kitchen and dining area very spacious and great for socialising. Utility room to wash and dry our hiking gear. A fabulous downstairs bathroom and a great living room with a huge TV. Lovely area outside - not warm enough for us to sit outside but can imagine how nice it would be in summer. I took so many things I simply didn't need so it was like being home from home. Very clean and tidy upon arrival. would definitely go again. Gwynn, the owners son was extremely friendly and informative. It was nice to see the photos of how the barn was developed.

“Warm, spacious, well equipped with a friendly host”

A warm "home from home" which was clean and welcoming on arrival. We arrived in the dark (mid October) and found the property easily after receiving good directions from the property owner. The house was warm and inviting with lots of space for four adults and two teenage children. We thoroughly enjoyed using the house as a base to explore mid Wales and found it very welcoming to return to after a long day out and about! The beds were clean and comfortable and the kitchen was equipped with all the usual items plus a few extras like a coffee maker. A short (10 mins approx) drive to Porthmadog provided a supermarket and lots of local businesses for food, gifts, local take aways and some interesting shops to browse through. Market day was Friday with approx 18 to 20 stalls. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cefn-yr-efail and would recommend the property to anyone who has a larger party of travellers!

“A fantastic getaway for a group of friends or larger family.”

We stayed at this house for a week with friends and children. We had typical welsh weather but this didn't seem to matter. We cooked, played games, snuggled up and watched films. Night times were so cosy. Once we'd put the kids to bed, we cracked open the wine, relaxed, chatted and popped the Pringles. One of the evenings we had a chinese takeaway from Portmafog town 5 minutes away. When the sun came out it was time to head to Black Rock sands with the buckets and spades. Harlech castle is 20 minutes away and Portmerion 10 minutes. Sometimes it was just nice to open the gate and walk up the quiet lanes outside the house. The views were beautiful, especially from the king sized bedroom. The kitchen is perfect for a larger group, it's modern and lush with a large table seating 6-8. We did our washing at the property so the suitcase was full of nice clean washing to take home. There is a double bedroom and a very large bathroom/shower/toilet on the ground floor should guests have disabilities.

“Unbelievably relaxing holiday in a fantastic location. Great for”

This is a beautifully decorated and furnished large holiday home in a fantastic location. The help we got before arriving, and the welcome we received was excellent - there was a pint of milk waiting for us and the house was warm and welcoming. The younger members of the group really appreciated the huge t.v. and comfortable sofas,we loved the whirlpool bath. Lovely views all around, with good walking on the doorstep and if you're lucky with the weather, perfect for stargazing. Close to the beaches and attractions of North Wales including Portmeirion only 10 minutes drive away. We will definitely stay there again, there is so much more to see and do in the area and it's a great house to come home to after a busy day. As the building is old it did creak a bit during the night as it settled, but we think that this was because of the heating (we were there in January) and probably wouldn't be a problem in the summer.

“An outstanding holiday home!!!”

The six of us visited in October 2011. As soon as we opend the door we were all very suprised on how clean and modern the barn converion was. We later met the owner and found him to be very helpfull. I would not hesitate on reccommending this property to anyone! A+++ all the way!!!

“The Holiday offered us an great deal in obtaining knowledge.”

Reviewed 3 Dec 2011

The Holiday provided a good opportunity to find out about North Wales which was unknown to several in our party i.e. Snowdon, Betsy-Coed, the Slate caverns, Ospreys, the beauty of North Wales and the excellence of the beaches. The Home wasm very good with great information and help from our Host.
