Surpassed all expections.
This is the first time we have holidayed in Wales, and the first time we have booked a cottage. The cottage surpassed all our expectations, both in amenities and location. I wish we lived here, its bigger than our house! Beautiful new kitchen and bathroom, spacious lounge and bedrooms, lovely little terrace outside the kitchen door that is a sun trap in the afternoons. The view is amazing! Although the road outside is quite busy, you really dont notice it inside, or in the garden. Lots of lovely places to visit and things to do short drives away. Porthmadog is a few miles up the road and there is a Tesco there, plus lots if other little shops for food and supplies. The owner leaves a folder of extensive information, plus recommendations for local eateries. There is also a box file full of leaflets for local attractions. The scenery all around is amazing, food for the soul. We will definitely be back.

In a very central location and in a beautiful valley, with a pub close by. Yr Efail is a charming cottage which is very comfortable, it is carefully decorated and looked after.
Miss Zealey

The property was in an excellent location for touring the area we had plenty of space for 5 adults. The property was well equipped, comfortable and warm on chilly nights.
Mrs Richardson

The cottage was immaculate and in a great location. Fully equipped with all we needed to enjoy our two week stay there.
