Fantastic cottage with beautiful surroundings
My family and I arrived at this beautiful cottage on the 26th of October, we were greeted by two big in swinging gates a very spacious driveway and 3 beautiful looking buildings. Upon entry into the cottage we were amazed at how beautiful and spacious it was.The open plan kitchen directly in front of us, with a nice big dining table overlooking the garden again was fantastic and big enough for us all to sit around and enjoy some nice family time with beer,wine and games. (I didn't want to leave this room). The low lighting and heating was already on in anticipation of our arrival, plus welcome gifts of eggs, milk, Welsh cakes and a nice bottle of shirts were all fantastic touches that made us feel very welcome , and at home . The cleanliness of the whole house was top class,it was well set out, and we'll organised. The front room with the log burner and overlooking balcony above were really great features, all 3 of the bedrooms were spacious and again were very nice and clean. With my dad recently out of hospital, a week in this beautiful cottage was exactly we needed, plus it's only 2 miles down the road to harlech for local amenities and harlech castle. Plus on the day of arrival we received a telephone call from Caroline the owner to make sure we had arrived safely and to make sure everything was okay for us, which was very thoughtful. As for the games room with a darts board and table tennis, this is where me and my son went every night for an hour or 2, (where my son was showing me up on the darts board) We really can't speak highly enough of this cottage,if the opportunity came about again, we wouldn't hesitate to book again. Many thanks to Caroline and the cleaners for such a great break.

Fabulous Cottage and Facilities
A fabulous cottage and facilities with a very warm welcome and helpful owners. The kitchen and living room were really well equipped and comfortable. The downstairs bedroom and en-suite is very handy for those who might struggle with stairs. Our family all enjoyed the games room with darts board and table tennis. The cottage is well situated and great for getting out to the beach or exploring the area. The rear garden and its views across open countryside are beautiful and very peaceful with lots of wildlife visiting! Would definitely stay here again.

Overall great stay
Overall this was an excellent cottage and as a family we enjoyed our stay, the facilities of this cottage were superb. With each bedroom a good size double we did not struggle for space, it really felt like a home away from home. We even managed to enjoy the beautiful garden with views while cooking a bbq, sadly this was short lived due to the change in weather. Even though the weather turned poor for the weekend we felt comfortable and relaxed spending time between the very large kitchen/diner and the living room which again were very comfortable. Would highly recommend this property and will definitely stay again next time we want to travel to north Wales.

Spacy, perfectly equipped, 3 bedrooms for 6 guests, very friendly host
Right in the heart of North Wales the 'Ysgubor Penmaen' was the best choice for a wonderful trip to one of the loveliest parts of GB. The cottage is more than spacy for 6 persons, beeing equipped with all you need. From dishwasher to a modern washing machine, 3 toilets, 2 showers and a really big flatscreen tv, not to talk about hairdryer, kitchenware and a really beautiful setup. It was hard for us to say goodbye after 2 unforgettable weeks. Thank you Caroline, see you again!
