“Fabulous spacious cottage, close to beach, pet friendly.”
Reviewed August 17, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The location could not be better, close to the beach and Porthmadog town. Ample parking with a patio seating area. The cottage is spacious upstairs and down. The furniture is comfortable, including the beds! Large dining table which can easily seat 8. An ideal holiday rental for a large family, with space for drying wetsuits etc. The owner is a delight to deal with which is why we have returned for the past three years, and would return again.

“Comfortable cottage - 5 mins from a glorious beach”
Reviewed July 24, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Cottage was ideal for the 3 of us. Everything worked well, and the electricity meter didn't eat up as much money as we feared (so long as you remember to turn the water off!). The nearby beach was amazing, and the location was great for accessing Snowdonia - Ceod y Brenin, Surf Snowdonia, Velocity Zip World, Cearnafon, Harlech were all trips we made. It would be good if there were some instructions for the oven (though we worked it out in the end), and maybe a visitors book for recommendations for local excursions, restaurants etc. Some drawers in the bedrooms and a shelf in the bathroom would be useful additions...

Thank you for your review, our holiday lets although they retain the character of the 18th century have been brought up to modern standards and as such are very well insulated so they retain heat in winter and keep cool summer during the months. If any guests need an help with anything I am always happy to answer any questions.
I take your point about a visitors book and it may be a good idea to provide one. I am pleased that you found our holiday lets conveniently located for the many local activities.

“Couldn't be better”
Reviewed June 20, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This is the second time we have stayed. This time the whole family came (and Sammy the dog) so we booked Gest Melyn and the adjoining property. As before we found the properties absolutely spotless. You could have eaten off the floors. The accommodation is great, the position could not be better. The Owner has thought of everything with ample utensils, plates, glasses and even games. It is such a great place to stay. A massive sandy beach is a short walk away. The local shop is 100 meters away. It a good centre for exploring. I think you get my drift. Can't think of a bad word to say about it. We are already looking at dates for next year.

“Lovely stay in”
Reviewed June 4, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We booked both cottages for two families plus a small dog. The renovations made to the properties are well thought-out and sympathetic. There are modern appliances and the internet/TV worked well in an area where mobile signals are weak. Convenient location and easy to find and are approx 30 mins drive to the car park for Pyg Tack on Snowdon. Each cottage can comfortably sleep 5 people and there is parking for 2-3 cars easily.

We would book either/both again and would recommend them to others.

Thank you for your thoughtful review, I agree it works well for two families especially as both the locked fire doors can be opened up to provide internal access. Thank you for recommending them t family and friends. All the best Alan

“Functional holiday let in an idealic spot”
Reviewed January 16, 2017 for a stay in December 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Stayed here over the Christmas period for four nights.
Just outside Porthmadog in a small village within walking distance of Black Rock Sands.
The property was clean and tidy and well presented. The kitchen/dining/living area is functional and easy to keep clean.
Upstairs, the two bedrooms are cosy with plenty of windows making it light and airy. One room is a double the other is a twin with a third bed at one end.
Take plenty of one and two pound coins as everything is electric and you use a coin fed meter. Once you get the place warmed up the electric usage calms down and you find you don't use as much money in the meter.
There is a large supermarket in walking distance which is very handy. Also a chippy, however this was closed until March 2017.
Plenty of places to go walking from the holiday let, the beach is wonderful. There is also a golf course across the road.
On the morning of our departure the cleaners were next door, getting it ready for the next lot of guests. Incidentally, you can hire both holiday lets for larger family or groups as there is a lockable door that connects the two lets from inside.
On the whole, an enjoyable stay. It would be good though if the owners provided an info pack on the place as there are a lot of switches dotted around for you to use before certain things like the towel rail, hot water and cooker hob can be used.

Thank you for your detailed review. We very much appreciate that you found our holiday home clean, cosy and tidy. We have a green ethos and charge only for a proportion of the electricity used and have insulated the cottage really well with modern materials on top of it having 26 inch thick walls.
The locked fire doors in each holiday let do work really well if two families stay together providing internal access if needed. I take your point and will make sure that all the switches are labelled.
I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. Regards Alan
