Sarah was a fantastic host, friendly and helpful throughout our stay. As cyclists we were very well looked after - secure bike storage, bananas, lovely porridge and helping us wash our kit was going above and beyond. Bodiwan is a lovely place, handy for the town but just enough out of the centre to be peaceful with great views. Our room was light and spacious. The owners are very mindful of COVID and doing all the right things without it being overbearing. We'll definitely be back.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights to celebrate his birthday. We booked the Mimosa cottage which is gorgeous, with its lovely log fire (very welcome after a hard day climbing Snowdon!), jacuzzi bath and, if you’re brave enough, a hot tub outside. Sarah and Mark were fantastic hosts, nothing was too much trouble and the breakfast was delicious. We will definitely be visiting again - thank you Sarah and Mark for making our weekend special.

From the minute we arrived we were made to feel welcome it felt like home ! After a hard afternoon of rafting being frezzing cold we were so glad to arrive there and we did feel truly welcome from Sarah truly amazing host.id asked if she could possibly put up a few banners and ballons in our room for my boyfriend and she had done absolutely lovely touch! We also had a very early start on the Sunday as we were visiting the slate mines an hour away so had to be up and out by half past 8 in the booklet it had said that breakfast only started at 8am but Sarah and her husband got up early and made our breakfasts for us which was absolutely amazing also ! Thank you for making our stay truly memorable for all the right reasons will definatley be returning.

Me and my husband had a lovely one night stay here while we were visiting Snowdonia. It was a lovely comfortable room and the owners where very friendly and helpful. They recommend restaurants and walks in the area which helped us out a lot. The breakfast which was included was also lovely and there was plenty of food to fill us up ready for a long walk. I would deffintly stay here again!
