Great house, great location
We booked this cottage for 9 young people (couples and singles). The house was huge and fully equipped to cater and accommodate us all for the week. The outside space had a good quality gas BBQ and large rattan table and chairs. The weather was fantastic which meant lots of trips to the beach and we tried out the ice cream parlour on the front. Wished we could have taken advantage of the log burners but it was too hot weather! Activities we did: Barmouth (10 min drive) Local walks Canyoning Visited Porthmadog Visited port merion for afternoon tea (a highlight!) Took a trip on the steam train from Porthmadog The bedding and bathrooms were very clean and high quality. The kitchen and utility could have been cleaner but we appreciate the quick turn round time. A great house for a memorable holiday for families and groups.

Absolutely wonderful
A family of 5 adults and 5 children stayed at the end of October into November. We found the accommodation to be furnished to very high standards. The facilities were of excellent quality. The kitchen was fully stocked with useful utensils and I was even able to bake two cakes. However I would suggest that you remove the metal utensils and provide plastic utensils if you would prefer metal ones not to be used on that fabulous large stove or griddle. The sea views from the house is amazing in some rooms. The washing machine and dryer being available was also a bonus. The pool being about 2 minutes drive away isn't really an issue. On arrival at the swimming complex you are provided with a fob so that you can access the pool. We had the entire pool to ourselves on our many visits to the pool. The beach is also a 7 minute walk or a 1 minute drive down a lane. It is a clean and stunning sand beach. My children caught crabs and fish. The thoughtful owners of the property even provided buckets, spades and nets. Parking was great and you have your own gated private driveway to the house. I would definetly visit again.

The house is a beautiful, spacious, family home that is very comfortable and well-placed for road/rail and walking down to the beach. We would definitely book this property again and would highly recommend it.
Mrs Sweeney

It was great for our big family gathering, the grandchildren loved the big baths! There was plenty of space and everyone was very comfortable. The heating was so efficient, we were warm all the time and the luxury of log fires was great. It is hard to mention everything, it was just an overall very nice place to stay.
Mrs Baldaro

A very comfortable house in a good location.
