The cottage was lovely! Great base for walking around the area and the view from the cottage was the best we had seen in Wales! The cottage had everything that we needed for our weeks stay with our 3 boys and our parents. So much to do around the Harlech area and what amazing beaches! Clean white sand and blue sea. We will be back again!
Our family had a great Christmas staying at this wonderful cottage up in the Welsh hills. Sometimes in the mist, sometimes with great panoramic views of Snowdonia. The kitchen was well equipped, even for Christmas dinner. Spacious reception rooms. A lovely downstairs bedroom and ensuite suitable for my less mobile parents. Our young children loved it.
Myself and my family, which included our four young children, have just had a fantastic week staying at Garth Mawr.
The accommodation is great, and the location superb. The property has a lovely garden, and is surrounded by fields which have sheep grazing throughout the day! It is a relatively remote and very peaceful location, whilst still being less than a 10 minute drive to Harlech, which itself is a lovely village. Loads to do in and around Harlech, and close to many other attractions (Portmeirion, Caernarfon Castle, Ffestioniog Railway, etc).
I'd very happily recommend this property to others.

We had a really lovely holiday in this perfect location. I must admit, the first time we headed up the hillside following the directions we wondered what we had let ourselves in for, but it was well worth it!! We fell in love with the downstairs bedroom with it's cosy conservatory and amazing views! En-suite great and bed really comfy too.
There is loads to do in the area. A couple of obvious recommendations are Harlech castle including the nearby award winning ice cream parlour and the Royal St David's course for golf & lunch - the food was very good, generous portions and reasonably priced. Also recommended is the Snowdonia Riding Stables in Waunfawr which is very friendly and also reasonably priced. Finally the swimming pool in Harlech which was handy on a wet afternoon.
The property is very well equipped and there was plenty of space for everyone to be together or do their own thing - all in all a wonderful, memorable week, just ran out of time as there were plenty more things we wanted to do!
Wonderfully secluded and surrounded by dramatic landscapes and beautiful hilly walks. We were here for a family Christmas and the house comfortably slept 7 adults (with room for one more) and a six-month-old. The house was comfortable and had equipment to allow us to cook a full roast. We had a wonderful time.
