The location is perfect with a beach close by and easy reach of two towns. We also visited Portmeirion , which was fascinating and Snowden which was stunning. All in all, it was a most enjoyable stay, may well go again.
We have just returned from our 6th visit to Gest Oren and enjoyed it as much as our 1st visit. All the facilities are good and it is just a short walk to the beach at Blackrock sands. There is a well stocked Spar convenience store just a couple of hundred metres up the road which is handy also a small fish & chip shop which we can recommend. The rear garden is south facing so gets the sun all day long, which means you can enjoy your morning paper with a coffee sitting in the sunshine and later in the day a nice cold drink as you watch the sun go down. One thing that I would suggest is take a couple of camping chairs / deckchairs as the picnic benches can be a little uncomfortable if you are sitting at them for any length of time.
This is the second time we have stayed at this cottage in February. The cottage is dog friendly and Alan, the owner, is extremely helpful. It is a short drive to the beach, Black Rock Sands, in one direction or a walk in the other. It makes an excellent base with Snowdon about half an hour away driving through stunning landscapes. Black Rock Llama trekking centre is a short walk away. The cottage is well equipped and clean. It's been fabulous.
