“A bit of TLC”
Reviewed 19 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

There were 11 of us who stayed here and we had a fantastic time, the bar especially was a massive hit amongst us. Although we did have a great time there were a few issues we felt would be beneficial to attend to.

The house itself is lovely, but appears to be falling apart. Some of the wallpaper throughout the house is coming away, the bar itself appeared damaged and there was a hole in the ceiling above the bar. There was an overall damp and musty smell throughout the house,

We noticed that in the front double en-suite room upstairs that it was damp and a couple of the girls found that their clothes felt damp after leaving them out overnight. There was a distinctive smell of must and especially damp in this room.

The large double room with the en-suite at the back was lovely but unfortunately the girls staying there found that the bed was broken in the middle and the springs kept popping on it when they were trying to sleep. There was a musty smell in this room especially aswell.

Unfortunately a little mouse did find its way into the house which many of the girls were unhappy about. I’m not sure if this was just an unfortunate incident or if there is a rodent issue.

Thanks for your review Amy The ensuite isn't damp just patchy painting for which I am the guilty one I've re painted it now so that confusion shouldn't happen again Sorry you found s musty smell Delyth has a nose like a bloodhound but wasn't able to detect anything As for your mouse problem If the doors are left open sometimes a little shrew might visit We certainly don't have a mouse problem

“Fantastic 60th!”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Just spent a fantastic weekend with all my family to celebrate my 60th Birthday.The house is just perfect for a family.Plenty of space and everything you need to make it a brilliant stay. Felt children were safe and free.Beds and bedrooms so comfortable.Place has great character which I hope never gets changed.The snug/bar was decorated with balloons banners which spelt my name correctly! It was so cosy. The kitchen has everything you need.The whole family couldn't believe how brilliant the house was inside and out.! Trampoline well used even by 60 year old!The house is in its own grounds well away from anyone but you are in good reach of villages, Bedgelert Caernarfon and is well placed to find days out or just stay and chill. Good communication with Delyth who couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome-nothing was too much for her.Thank you again for all you did to make our weekend one to remember.I would certainly recommend this house as a great stay.Very comfortable and cosy

“Perfect in every way! ”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I cannot praise this house enough! This is the second time we have stayed here and will continue to visit as much as possible!
Delyth was fantastic, she communicated with me all of the way and arranged birthday banners and decorations in preparation for our stay!
The house is just perfect, loads of space and the bar area is perfect to sit back, relax and have a good party! It's in the perfect location, nothing too close so you can make as much noise as you like or enjoy the peace and quiet if needed, go for long walks around the three lakes on the land owned by Linda and Glynn to wake you up the morning after a heavy night and not too far from shops and food places if needed!
The only MINOR fault I could find was that the outside light didn't work but I was informed by Glynn that this was one of the next jobs!
The whole process ran so smoothly from booking to checking out, we had contact all of the time with Delyth and Glynn and Linda were close by in case we had any problems (which we didn't)
Thank you all and we will see you again soon :) xx

“Wonderful week end”
Reviewed 22 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had a surprise 40th birthday party here over the week end. It couldn't have been more enjoyable On arrival we were met by Delyth who explained where everything was. There is everything you need for your stay. We had no problems whatsoever. We had both open fires working, one in the bar ,the other in the lounge, in no time at all
We were able to enjoy a couple of walks while we were there, one to the beach which included lunch at Ty Coch pub and another starting behind the house and going up towards the derelict building on top of the hill.
We would highly recommend this property, and hopefully will return one day.
Thanks to Linda for keeping us updated and to Delyth for her hard work.
