RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS
Disappointing So, we booked the cottage for a party of seven, all family. The pictures are accurate but unfortunately we were disappointed by the small things which would have made this a fab holiday. I am only reviewing this way as I am hoping that these things will be improved by the owner and will help future guests!
The location is great and the views from the cottage are lovely!
The kitchen is well equipped and has all the mod cons, however the beds and bedding are very tired, the double in the attic room is especially worn out and my daughter and son in law said they could feel every spring.
The quilts and pillows are absolutely ancient and very worn out, (see pictures) there is a note in the cottage asking to strip the beds which were used and when I did I had to take the pictures which I'm posting! These things are not expensive to replace and for the cost of the cottage should be done immediately. The cleaning of the cottage also leaves something to be desired especially the En-suite bathroom (see pictures) The floors are very creaky and noisy and as soon as anyone steps out of bed the entire house hold is awake!

Excellent Fantastic location and within easy reach of beaches, local pubs and attractions.
We were met by Gwyn who is lovely and very welcoming, and the cottage itself was superbly laid out and although we were only a party of 4 I think even 8 here would find the place very generously sized.
It is dog friendly and our collie was quite safely contained with the garden areas and could be left to look after himself with no concerns.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a great place to stay in the area and we will definitely be back. Peter H 2018-09-20
Amazing wonderful beautiful-thanks gwyn!! We have sadly just returned from a week at this property,we did not want to leave and I still wish I was back there!!
It is a beautiful big house in a stunning quiet location.
Gwyn who looks after the property is a true gentlemen, he brought us fresh eggs on our arrival day and was on hand if ever we needed anything even extending his kindness to picking up me and the husband when we got stranded in bedgellert after a walk went wrong.
The area is amazing, loads to do all around no matter what you want to do-we had 3 great days walking and spent then other 4 doing tourist things such as black rock sands, Harlech, bangor and criccieth and there is still plenty more we plan on returning to do.
All in all we had a fantastic holiday and we very much plan on returning in the future. Highly recommend and once again thanks gwyn hope to see you again soon.

Perfect retreat Me and my family visited this barn, and it was just what we were after.
Great location right near portmadog, criccieth but a in a nice secluded location in the hills offering a perfect retreat.
It has everything you'll need in a holiday home and is presented to a high standard.
The owners father lives opposite and is very welcoming, offering fresh eggs on arrival. A nice touch.
We enjoyed our stay and will defiantly be returning as in my opinion there is no better base to explore North Wales. Graham A 2017-01-08
