Stunning property, very well equipped and fantastic views over the sea. Perfect holiday home :)Mrs R K Prest - 24th July 2017
A wonderful time together at The Boathouse - amazing views and a beautiful holiday cottage. Paddling and ice creams at Black Rock beach, 'crab-catching' in the harbour and a relaxing steam train journey were key highlights, along with delicious fish 'n' chips from 'Allports'. A fantastic family holiday and a place to remember!Perkins Family - 2nd June 2017
It deserves total recommendation. Mr A Robson - 24th May 2017
Fantastic house, so well-equipped. Unbeatable location. Snowdon, Slate Mines, Harlech, Black Rock sands, zip wire, menai straits, Caernarfon, Beddgelert, Llanberis, Bala lake and MORE! Weather was Welsh! Rain, cloud and sun. Sunrise and Sunsets lovely. We will be back for another lovely daily holidayThe Robson's - 19th May 2017
