“Perfect”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Lovely rural getaway, had a perfect time and the cabin was beautiful and well presented. Drive leading up is very steep and not for the faint-hearted.

“Wonderful break”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a lovely time by the sea. Accommodation was clean and tidy. The guy who owns it is friendly and accommodating. Close to many sites to enjoy a wonderful view.

“Lovely chalet”
Reviewed 17 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Excellently finished and equipped chalet with everything that you would need for a nice break two in a very quiet scenic location. Great location to explore Aberdovey and the surrounding area.The owner clearly has very high standards of cleanliness and decor; he is also very friendly and helpful.
The only negative is the driveway up from the main road which is quite a 'bumpy climb' but the cosy chalet makes-up for that.
Would recommend.

“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Well equipped, well maintained with a great little view. Not far from the beach at Aberdyfi with all the amenities you could. Great base for walks of the area.

“Perfect stay!”
Reviewed 8 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Both myself and partner loved out stay at Fox Lair! It has been done to a high standard and has everything that you need for your stay. Even tea, coffee, bed linen and towels were included. Fox Lair has a little patio with a table and chairs that are lovely to sit on in the sun. Its a brilliant place that i cannot recommend enough, will definitely be returning!!

Thanks Gary

“Really lovely”
Reviewed 15 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The facilities were great, everything was clean, the owner was helpful. The chalet had a lovely cosy feel and we were lucky enough in March to have beautiful weather and be able to sit out in the little porch with the gorgeous view and read. The sunrise is also beautiful from there. It was a lovely romantic weekend. Aberdovey is a sweet little town with basic facilities (note: No free cash machine) and its Indian restaurant/takeaway (Bay of Bengal) is outstanding.

No complaints from us. I would reiterate what others have said: bring pound coins. I also recommend bringing a blanket as it got chilly when the heat hadn't been on esp. with leather sofas and the heating isn't overly efficient so takes a while to warm up. You definitely need a car - beware the road up to the chalet is steep and bumpy - but fun if you want to feel like a rally driver. I'm not sure how anyone would ever get up there in the snow. ... And if you're with Vodafone, forget it. 'Emergency calls only' :) and as I didn't know where to go on arrival that made it tricky - but luckily my husband's EE network was fine. No wifi either - for me that was a good thing though.

“Absolutely fabulous!”
Reviewed 17 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A very clean and lovely, tasteful chalet just ideal for 2 people on a romantic break. The view is breathtaking and even though it is quite a steep drive up to it, it's well worth it. We will certainly be back again.
