We do hope you did all the things that you wanted to do, as you seemed to know the areas to visit, including Harlech and south to Tal-y-Llyn.

This is the third time we have stayed with Alvin and David and once again everything was first class. Accommodation is spotlessly clean and an excellent breakfast in the morning to set you up for the day. Look forward to visiting again in 2017.

Excellent, good accommodation and lots of help and advice from Alvin & David. If it's ever possible I will return. This area of Wales (Southern Snowdonia) repays the investment of far more time than I could give be it Trains, Walking, Cycling to Wildlife. Don't miss the Mawdach Trail.

My husband and I were absolutely delighted with this little gem. Our hosts were amazing and the whole place was spotless. We had twin beds which were so comfy and the linen was immaculate. Breakfast was fabulous, and even the coffee was superb.

The weather was against us when we arrived but we were very impressed throughout our visit, not only by the friendliness of the proprietors throughout our time there, such lovely guys, but the whole place was immaculate, couldn't be faulted in any way.
