Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have been to Coed Cae three times now and we enjoyed each one of our stays. All the rooms are very nice and you get a homemade breakfast of good quality every morning. Jacky and Graham are always very friendly and the dogs will greet you with enthusiasm that is hard to match. The area is one of the most beautiful places in the UK and you will get all the advice you need about it from the owners with no problem. All in all it is now one of our favourite places for weekend getaways.

We spent a great long weekend in Coed Cae B&B and we are really looking forward to get back there in the future.

The place is beautiful, close to the sea and very nice town of Barmouth. Surrounding is stunning as well, hills, forests and incredible views on Mawddach Estuary - great place either if you walk, bike or just want to chill out.

Our room was very clean and comfortable, food was superb and we enjoyed spending first evening just sitting beside the fire in comfortable lounge. We also went to Gorge pub for a meal, was busy there at that evening and we had to wait for our food a bit longer, but it was worth it.

It is one of these places you want to visit again and again.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable & relaxing time at Coed Cae this weekend; everything you could possibly wish from a B&B and more. The house itself embodied the spirit of Snowdonia & the Welsh countryside - full of oak-beams, log-burners, tasteful wooden furniture & dozens of books about the local area. Our room & private bathroom was spotless & it just felt like a really homely & snug place to relax in the communal areas (lounge/dining room) after a day of exploring the surroundings.

Jacky & two dogs (Tess & Kip) were wonderful hosts (the latter two being particularly keen for a game of tug!) & the home-cooked food was a particular highlight. We were able to try from a range of different & equally delicious breakfasts each morning - inc locally-sourced jams, bacon, sausages, eggs etc (plus tea/coffee, juice, porridge, cereals etc) We also enjoyed an evening meal & packed lunch here, both of which were excellent. Coed Cae's meals & overall service was significantly better than that found at the local pub (George III), and Jackie's home-made crumble & cake were amazing!

Its obviously a really great location & we were able to make the most of the beautiful Mawddach Trail, around Barmouth beach, Harlech castle, several local panorama viewpoints of the estuary/mountains plus a hike up Cadair Idris, all of which were just a short drive away. Our only regret was having to come home so soon!!

Don't come here if you were looking for soulless hotel uniformity & rely on mod cons like high-speed wifi all the time - but do come here if you like exploring the great outdoors & want a slice of real Welsh countryside life.

We couldn't have asked for a more comfortable, friendly & cozy stay - so thank you very much Jacky, Graham & dogs!

We stumbled across Coed Cae looking for a last minute place to stay to watch the Bridges Birthday Fireworks in Barmouth. Oh my gosh did fortune smile on us.

Booking was smooth and simple. Emails from Jacky were bright and cheerful. When we arrived we were greeted with big smiles and honestly felt like we were meeting old friends. It’s so nice to be put at ease by meeting people with such obviously good energy.

The family room is huge, well decorated, has every facility you would need, and is spotless. The bed was large and comfortable and I had more pillows than I knew what to do with.

A personal pet peeve of mine is plug sockets and the room had more than we needed and all well placed to charge your phone on the bedside table at night. Maximum score there then!

Breakfast was excellent. The sausages and bacon were really really good quality. The poached egg was done to perfection. Not only was the food superb but there was so much of it! It wasn’t a small plate and it was full. We skipped lunch because we were still as full up as eggs.

When next we sneak out for a relaxing weekend away. Coed Cae is on the list, high on the list.

Our third trip out with Graham to the fantastic mountain bike trails at Coed y Brenin (and hopefully not the last) and our second stay at the beautiful Coed Cae (and again, unlikely to be our last) Everything was excellent all round; food, accommodation, bike tutoring and guiding.. We can't recommend Graham and Jacky highly enough for their attention to detail and willingness to make a stay with them pretty near perfect...

We spent a delightful weekend at Coed Cae to celebrate our wedding anniverary; warmly welcomed, snugly accommodated and excellently fed. Originally we had intended to stay one night, but the decision to stay an extra night was made within minutes of arriving. We dined in both evenings; after the first evening meal, the decision became what is, I believe, commonly called a 'no-brainer'.

Many thanks to Jacky and Graham who obviously enjoy what they do.

We stayed here for 5 nights in April and were delighted. Mind you, the weather was perfect which helped, but the place is a gem.
It's only about 3 miles outside Dolgellau, along the road to Barmouth. When you reach the turn which goes left for the toll bridge, you turn sharp right and go steeply upwards. Coed Cae is perched above the estuary which gives it a great feeling of being out in the wilds when in fact it isn't.
The whole house is newly and elegantly decorated, and spotless. There are two rooms upstairs: a very large en suite family room and the smaller twin that we had - very cosy but the (private) bathroom is across the corridor, not en suite, the only drawback. There's another double room downstairs. Also upstairs is a comfortable residents' lounge/dining room with a good balcony and an open fire, which is a delight on a cool evening.
Coed Cae's greatest assets, however, are Graham and Jackie who combine efficiency and professionalism with great friendliness and humour. And Jackie is an excellent cook. We ate in on 3 nights and were very pleased we did. The food was delicious and creative; everything fresh and home cooked, of course.
The breakfast was also outstanding. I just could not resist the scrambled eggs with succulent smoked salmon!
Would we go again? Oh yes!!

Travelling to North Wales coast with hubby and dog. I usually book the accommodation but on this occasion Mr H did it. Result! We totally lucked out with a friendly, Mary Poppins....... practically perfect in every way.

Location certainly could not have been better. Bedroom on the ground floor with immediate access to the great outdoors for doggo. The owners were welcoming, informative about the area and places to visit/eat/swim/walk and there was the best b&b breakfast I’ve ever eaten.

Ideally sited for trips to Fairbourne, Barmouth, Snowdonia and Dolgellau; and best of all walking across the toll bridge for supper at the George lll pub, right on the river

Would definitely recommend and indeed visit again

We made a last minute booking, not sure what to expect and we found a true gem! We were met by Jacky, who was friendly and informative. We had the family room (last minute booking so there were only the 2 of us). The accommodation is comfortable and there are some really beautiful pieces of art work dotted around the lounge. The views are second to non and the 2 dogs are always ready to welcome a friendly throwing arm!

We had a surprise returning in the dark, we were met by twinkling lights in the trees, a beautiful surprise.

Breakfast was a feast! By far the best we've had on our travels. We will definitely be back but next time in the Showman's Wagon, where although I'll have to cook our own breakfast, there is a glass ceiling in the lounge to look at the stars that I am sure will more than make up for it :)

We booked one night here because we were unable to get 3 nights in Betws-y-Coed but so glad we did and wish we had been able to spend more time. The hosts, Graham and Jacky were warm and welcoming and their 2 dogs, Tess and Kip, a delight. Their home is beautiful with a lovely peaceful ambience, surrounded by woodland and stunning scenery. Jacky provided our lovely evening meal, catering for our vegan daughter - she was very impressed with the homemade coconut milk ice cream! I don't believe we could have found a better choice anywhere.
