The property was beautifully presented, equipped and clean. The enclosed garden gave us peace of mind for the dogs. A tiny improvement might have been a selection of books and games. Otherwise we were more than happy. Many thanks.Mrs Christina Barker - 31st July 2018
A really lovely cottage and a perfect home from home in a spectacular locationMs Sally Hickling - 23rd July 2018
Clean, well appointed and in a perfect location for us.Pam from Wakefield - 16th July 2018
One of three Holiday Lets on this site, all individual, immaculately presented and very private. We had a lovely welcome from Charles who greeted us and told us what we needed to know about The Barn, heating, contact details etc. We felt very welcome from the moment we arrived. The Cottage was equipped with everything we needed and was extremely comfortable. Our two dogs were with us too so we enjoyed daily woodland/river walks straight from the door. We didn't have the best weather but were able to relax in comfort on the sun loungers and garden furniture on the large patio area. We have been renting cottages in Wales for many years and always have to search for one that ticks all the boxes, have to say this one is definately up there for us and can't wait to return. Lovely to meet you May, the cottages are a credit to you and your staff!Fancis - 10th July 2016
Really nice property, very welcoming for the whole family ( young children under 6) who had a great time. There's a nice beach in Porthmadog - a bit of a walk but well worth it. There's lots to see and do! We love Wales!David and Family - 31st August 2015
In beautiful surroundings, awesome view.
Finished to the highest standard, peaceful and relaxing. The garden was beautiful and added to the "wow" factor. Great for touring Snowdonia, even visited Anglesey. Lovely local walks too.We will not stop talking about it!
Portmeirion is a must to visit, and the slate mine at Blaenau Ffestiniog was an exhilerating experience. Dolwyddelan Castle was fun to find and explore, and there are fantastic views of the Snowdon range from the Betws y Coed to Blaenau Ffestiniog road -a great place to picnic!. We could not "eat out" because of food allergies, and found the Eurospar in Dolgellau stocks gluten free bread and other "special" food. Also the Tesco in Portmadog and the Co-op in Barmouth were useful for the free from ranges.Julie - 28th May 2015
Property is very good and the owner was very helpful.Family from Coventry - 21st April 2015
