Was made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived, couldn't ask for more friendly environment. Views are fantastic with plenty to do. Breakfasts were beautiful, rooms are magnificent will go back...

Particularly lovely spot to stay offering b&b yurts and camping. Great breakfast too. Had tea and Welsh scones on arrival which was so great after such a long journey. Friend is wheelchair bound for which they have a special room too.

We stayed at The Slate Shed with friends to celebrate someone's birthday. We did not stay in the B&B itself, but in the adjoining cottage. We did enjoy the wonderful breakfast on Sunday morning before returning to Belgium. Both Tyr Adar, the cottage where we stayed, and the Small Barn are spacious cottages that could easily lodge a family of... More

We recently had a long weekend staying in the large yurt at Graig Wen & we had a really lovely time. From the moment we arrived, everyone at Graig Wen was welcoming & friendly.

The area is beautiful with much more to see and do than we had expected, with a full week of good weather which really made our holiday. On a negative note, as we pointed out to John when he asked if everything was ok, there is an issue with the pressure delivery to the hot & cold water to the... More

Thanks for the feedback. We added a bath to Ty'r Adar cottage in response to customer feedback but it does run quite slowly due to low pressure from our natural spring. We tried adding a pump but guests found this a little noisy. Over the quieter winter season, we will be redecorating the kitchen and hope to improve the water... More

I stayed here at Graig Wen for three nights last year and was delighted at the atmosphere and ambience of the site. The site is well organised, though small which gives it a nicer, more cosy feel. I have a small campervan so booked a hardcore pitch with electric hookup, and there are only about 10 (1 think) available so... More

Really lovely clean and friendly B&B with the most amazing views across the estuary. Superbly located with ease of access to the Mawdacch Trail. Excellent breakfast and even catered for my gluten free needs. Will definitely be visiting again.

Stayed in the Bran room as an unexpected birthday treat. They supplied a birthday candle and chocolates as a treat. The bath is definitely large enough for two! The bed exceedingly comfortable. Scenic view. Lovely atmosphere. Extra rooms downstairs to chill. Just wish we had had more time there.
