“Relaxing holiday full of breathtaking views !!!”
Reviewed January 6, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We spend 5 nights in December in Craig y Gronfa Barn with my partner and another couple. We were warmly greeted by the owners, both really nice and friendly ! We entered the warm and cosy cottage and we were pleasantly surprised. The views from every window were stunning ! The kitchen was very well equiped, the living room had a small fireplace which made it even more festive and cosy !
The cottage has great location, 10 - 20 min drive to spectacular walking paths, lakes, beautiful victorian villages !
Great experience, the best Christmas present ever !!!

“Fantastic accomodation”
Reviewed October 5, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My friends and I used the cottage as a base to explore the local area.
The cottage had a great location for what we needed and was well equipped, clean and cozy.

Gary and his Wife were extremely accommodating and couldn't have done more to make our trip enjoyable.

Many thanks and I will definitely be returning!

“a great base and value for money”
Reviewed July 20, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a very pleasant trip - my wife and her family plus self. We stayed for 3 nights. Friendly hosts. The barn was spacious, well maintained, clean and ideal for a relaxed getaway. The location was lovely, tucked away up a long drive surrounded by beautiful scenery and easy access to some of the UK's best landscapes. We would stay again and I recommend anyone looking for a quite break in a beautiful spot would struggle to beat this. Many thanks to Gary and his wife.

“Lovely spacious stay”

Stayed here for 3 nights just recently and cannot fault the place only for the road that leads upto the barn. In our volvo this was quite tricky and did put us off going out a few times. It's a lovely place though and well heated and very spacious for our 1 yr old to crawl about in. A fireguard would come in handy though but the barn was warm enough so this wasn't needed. Everything was provided, kitchenware, washing up gear and towels. The owners are great and the area is very beautiful. Dolgellau was 15 mins from us and less than 30 mins to the beach. A great place to stay.

Management Response

Thanks for the review but just wanted to add a comment regarding the drive as it now seems to be worrying many prospective renters. We have a saloon car ourselves and come up and down the drive several times a day without problem as do nearly all the people who stay. It is rather steep but should not present a problem for a normal saloon car if driven up in first gear at constant speed.

My husband and I stayed for two nights for a cycling holiday. The location is fairly remote - which suited us just fine - and the views across the surrounding countryside are marvellous! The owners of the cottage were friendly and welcoming and on hand as they occupy the farmhouse next door. We were really impressed with how beautifully the barn had been done up and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I imagine the walking in the area is fab and it is close to Barmouth which is a lovely beach and a few nice towns are not too far a drive away. We came mainly for the mountain biking at Coed y Brenin which was approximately a half hour (pleasant) drive away. Would definitely consider returning as the rent was excellent value for money! Only a couple of minor drawbacks, the wooden slats on the bed were very creaky so neither of us got the best nights sleep as we kept waking ourselves up whenever we moved. We had a little trouble with the wifi - it worked absolutely fine with our phones but was a little temperamental on the laptop. Also would advise turning on the water heater on arrival as we struggled to get enough hot water for both of us to have hot showers without it. The owners have put together a great folder that tells you everything you need to know about the cottage and we REALLY enjoyed the wood burner - so nice and cosy! Thanks for a lovely stay.
