This end-terraced property in Llan Ffestiniog sleeps four people in two bedrooms.

Gorwel is a end-terraced bungalow in Llan Ffestiniog. This property sleeps four people in two bedrooms, consisting of one king-size double and one bunk room, as well as a bathroom. The cottage also has a kitchen with dining area and a sitting room.

Outside there is off road parking for one car opposite the property and a lawned garden with patio and furniture. Gorwel is a delightful base for a family or couple who wish to explore the Snowdonia National Park either on foot or by bike, or you may wish to simply take in the breathtaking scenery.


Could be a really nice property but needs attention to make it value for money
First, the positives - good location, good sized accommodation for 2 (would be cramped for a family). Off road parking also a bonus. Having a garden was nice. You are quite overlooked but would be fine for kids to play etc. This could be a really nice property with an overhaul. The negatives: There were a number of issues with the property which individually are minor, however, taken together give it a rather sad air of neglect. We expected a bit more for the price...or at least for the basics to be there. There was a general lack of cleanliness (the bungalow is obviously given a quick clean between guests, bedding changed etc, but a more thorough deep clean needs doing). The bedding needs replacing - duvets and pillows are thin & limp & covers are faded & tired-looking. Same with the towels which, while clean, were snagged & marked. Sofas are stained & sagging. Sky digibox remote appeared to be broken. Many breakages/snags generally. The addition of a wall bracket for the shower would be a huge bonus. There are some issues around the parking also & you do have to keep an eye on your car. One of the neighbours in particular seemed to take a great interest in the car & outside the cottage seems to be a popular place for the local children to play football & throw stones! In summary the location & size of the accommodation are good but it just needs some attention ? a deep clean, sorting out of the snags & some new equipment/furnishings. Then I think it would be good value for money.

Really enjoyed our stay at Gorwel, it was well equipped, warm and spotlessly clean. Views from the front of the house of the hills were lovely.
Miss Dilley

The bungalow was lovely, comfortable and cosy, and so nice to go back to after tiring days touring the area. Also very well equipped. It is very well situated and easy to find, with the pub, where we were allowed to take our dog into, just 5 minutes walk away. Lovely views from the front of the property.
Mrs Birch

The property, in regards to being equipped, was the best I have ever stayed in. They have thought of everything.
Ms Spindlove

This holiday property was spot on. Very peaceful and the view from the living room window and front door is amazing. Walking in the area is also good, we had a very good week. Thank you
Mr Hawkins
