The area has a wealth of bird watching, including the RSPB site at Penmaenpool, fishing and mountain walking, as well as close access to a number of beautiful beaches, the nearest being the unspoilt Fairbourne Beach (Blue-Flag) two miles away.

Amazing house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and has so many little touches that really provide the house with personality. We loved the provision of dog towels. The area itself is amazing with so much to do and excellent food and drink on offer. If you like the outdoors this is the place to visit with mountains, beaches, rivers and forests all here and so accessible.

A cosy, comfortable, relaxing few days away with a lovely owner in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely couple of days away staying at this gorgeous cottage. It is warm, cosy, comfortable and decorated/furnished to a high standard. The cottage is well equipped and the Owners have thought of everything that you would need to make your stay pleasurable. Victoria is very welcoming and informative, with some lovely added touches upon arrival and the surrounding area is stunning with some great walks from your front door. Some much needed quality time spent away with our 2 teenagers and 2 dogs! Highly recommended.

Very cosy cottage in a great location - wish we'd stayed longer!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely few days in this very cosy cottage. The attention to detail was great from the time of booking until the time we left. We had every thing we needed, from the comprehensive guide to the cottage and area, to the lovely food pack. Everything was clean and comfortable and a real home from home. We only stayed a few nights but will be back as there was so much more to explore! Highly recommended.

We need to move....

  • 5 of 5

We took our dog here for New Year and wow, what a place. We had the convenience of having an Asda delivery put away, wine chilled, a guest hamper of delicious local produce, Prosecco and freshly baked vegetarian and meat hot sausage rolls on arrival courtesy of Victoria (You really cannot beat a Delia recipe:-))

From there, chill was the word! We took our dog to a local beach 2 miles away which was stunning and she ran until she dropped. We stopped off at a local store for last minute things and the customer service was impeccable.

Enjoyed a NYE meal in the cottage and actually saw New Year in for the first time in a few years! Maybe the many naps I had during the day.

All in all, we went out in our lounge pants on New Years day and walked our dog to a beautiful estuary just across the road. It was so good that we are now planning to retire before we retire to this part of Wales.

Hosts were amazing, great to see on the few occasions we did and we were really sad to leave so Thank you both.

Perfect Autumn Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a few days late October with Bonni our cockapoo and had the best time. The cottage itself is beautiful and Victoria has literally thought of everything when it comes to detail. We didn't want for anything and the welcome package was a lovely touch. She met

us on arrival and talked us through the cottage itself and the surrounding areas. It is so well situated to enjoy and explore lots of

places in North Wales. We took our bikes and went both ways on the Mawddach trail, the scenery is stunning. Barmouth is beautiful as is the little village of Dolgellau. We also went to Surf Snowdonia, and Tree Tops Adventure and called in at Portmeirion on our way home.

There are so many other things to see and do so we will definitely be back. This is one of the nicest cottages we have ever stayed in!

Tranquil and idyllic home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Although we were only there for 4 days, we had a great time. The place was stylishly renovated - modern but still homely. The location is ideal, a short walk away from Barmouth (nearby beach town) with other attractions and nature trails within the area. Victoria was incredibly friendly and helpful, and the welcome hamper was brilliant for the well equipped kitchen!
