I could not recommend this accommodation and the people that rent this place enough. Owners were very friendly and accommodating, very quick to help when it was requested ( which wasn't really needed ). The views.... OMG they are amazing, such a beautiful tranquil place. We stayed for a week but wish we booked longer. We all enjoyed using the games rooms and had a lot of games of pool. Will definitely go back.

Been here twice now with mates and it is one of the most stunning little spots. Set close to loads of local attractions but far enough away to give your some peaceful relaxing times. Sally is a spectacular host and often would coke and let us know about local spots for walks, lake swimming and amazing food/drinks. Will be taking more family and friends in the future 100% and truly is a great spot. Thanks Sally 6 lads from the Midlands

We had a great time here! Very close to loads of great local attractions, as well as attractions within the house (such as the games room). Owners were very helpful and friendly with every query that we had. Strongly recommended - would love to visit again!

A big thank you to Sally for such an amazing week at your cottage. Very reasonable price, the view from the living room window is worth that alone. I could not recommended this place enough. See you next year Sally.

This lovely accommodation is a delight, and it easily exceeded our expectations. The cottage is spacious, comfortable and the kitchen well equipped, and the very large garden (mainly lawn) at our disposal was a delight, especially on a balmy September evening - and the view of the nearby mountain/hills, dappled in sunshine, was simply beautiful. The owner Sally and her family live next door; she was there to give us a warm welcome on our arrival. Would I stay here again? Yes! And would I recommend it? Most certainly!

We had a wonderful holiday. The house was perfect for our family. Very well equipped with everything we needed, breath-taking views and the children loved the games room. They have developed a new enthusiasm for darts and table tennis. The house is very well located for Barmouth and Dolgellau. The weather was fantastic so we spent some sunny evenings in the sea at Barmouth as well as visiting Portmerion, Black Rock Sands, Porthmadog, Bala Lake, Harlech Castle and Betsw y Coed for the Fforest coaster. All of which were within a 50 minute drive and I would recommend any of them. If, like us, you like ice cream you should try Hufenfa'r Castell ice cream shop by Harlech castle. The shop is run by the ice cream maker who can tell you all about the ingredients including the strawberries from her mum's garden. Sally and Martin were great hosts, they were helpful but not intrusive. Thank you for getting our washing in when we were back late one evening! This really was one of our favourite holidays.

Well, where do I start? The booking process was so easy and Sally (the owner) had good communication and supplied helpful information, such as driving location/near by amenities beforehand. Upon arrival we were greeted by Sally, who gave a full run down of this beautiful, FULLY equipped cottage. We appreciated the tea, coffee, milk and cookies to welcome us upon our arrival. The cottage is in a fantastic location with beautiful views of the mountains. We made good use of the garden, both by day to relax after along day out and by night to star gaze! My grandson enjoyed chatting to the nearby resident sheep. The cottage provided a perfect base to explore North Wales. We visited Mount Snowdon - tip if you want to use train book in advance! We also visited Zip World Forest ( a great visit for ages 57, 54 , 28, 26 and 7)! Visited Mach Loop to plane watch (v. successful) and the beautiful, nearby beach of Barmouth. Hope to be able to return soon! The cottage and holiday surpassed our expectations!
