Really lovely clean and friendly B&B with the most amazing views across the estuary. Superbly located with ease of access to the Mawdacch Trail. Excellent breakfast and even catered for my gluten free needs. Will definitely be visiting again.

Stayed in the Bran room as an unexpected birthday treat. They supplied a birthday candle and chocolates as a treat. The bath is definitely large enough for two! The bed exceedingly comfortable. Scenic view. Lovely atmosphere. Extra rooms downstairs to chill. Just wish we had had more time there.

We enjoyed our stay at Graig Wen. We were in a good location for exploring snowdonia national park. We walked the mawddach trail in both directions from Graig Wen. The staff were friendly and the Caban we stayed in was cosy! The only negative was the breakfast hamper was pricey and would of been good to have the option online...

Nice friendly welcome, we were camping on the "panorama pitch" with amazing views. We enjoyed our stay here, but it's just a shame the facilities weren't better. The toilet block was tired and the showers could do with updating, smelly shower curtains and in general could be cleaner. Overall good stay.

We ( family of four ) stayed next to the Slate Shed in Small Barn Cottage, which was actually very big despite the name. The sun room is very relaxing offering a lovely view.

Thank you! Pleased to hear you enjoyed your hamper and the bottle of fizz on ice for your arrival. Unfortunately another camper picked your ice-packs up by mistake and were really embarrassed when they realised what they had done! The ice-packs are still here so you will just have to come back on holiday here again and pick them up!

Great campsite with very friendly staff. The site has excellent facilities which are well maintained and clean. Unfortunately my pitch was on quite a slope which made it awkward to sleep but apart from that the site is fantastic. Great views and a great location.

We had an amazing time here, we stayed in the B&B which was just how we imagined it to be. I'm gluten free and was more than catered for. Great place. Was lots to keep us busy in the surrounding areas. The blue lake well worth finding.
