Lle a tŷ arbennig. Lle ardderchog a pherchnogion croesawgar. Gwasanaeth rhagorol - diolch. / Great property in a great location, welcoming owners. Excellent service - thank you.John from Clwyd - 11th March 2018

Second time staying there and we absolutely loved it.Michelle from Leigh - 1st January 2018
Superb location, peace and quiet with walks from the door. Great hosts. Recommends: climb Bird Rock.Trevor from Cheshire - 5th November 2017
Very comfortable, peaceful and outstanding location.
Tip: Be prepared for bad weather and enjoy the good weather, if you are equipped for all conditions you are sure to have a great time.Adrian from Chelmsford - 29th June 2017
Visited to be secluded and close to Cadair Idris. Very peaceful and ideal for any sort of getaway.
If you like a curry, the Lemon Tree restaurant/takeaway in Dolgellau is very nice.
Walking up Cadair Idris from Ty Nant is quite easy, with a GPS/map anyone in suitable clothing can make it.Alistair from Colchester - 6th February 2017
Lovely cosy cottage, we all felt at home there and had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable and it was clean throughout. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Tips: From what we could tell, the closest shop was 25 minutes away so bring plenty of supplies. It's a bit remote but that was what we were after. There's a fair few good walks to go on in the area to admire the superb views and scenery. There's also an easy 2 mile round walk to a 13th Century ruined castle (Castell y Bere).Friends from Manchester - 24th November 2016
I always find you extremely efficient!
We love the location - beautiful scenery; we always feel comfortable there; ideal for slightly hemiplegic seven-year-old grandson; son in law loves the fishing. We love our holidays there.
Recommendations: The beaches at Fairbourne and Barmouth are to die for. The café on the corner of the beach road in Fairbourne is very good. Nice little steam railways close by. Dolgoch Falls.Guests from Wolverhampton - 24th October 2016
Really loved it all apart from the rain but that did not stop us enjoying ourselves.
Recommendations: Alternative Technology Centre. The Railway Inn - lovely food. The little pub in Corris - beautiful Steaks. Ynyslas Beach, Borth - beautiful.Family from Berkshire - 2nd July 2016
