Thank you so much for leaving us an excellent review and for writing the lovely comments in our guest book. So glad to hear that you all had a wonderful holiday in tropical Arthog, 36 degrees C ... what fantastic weather you had!

Great to hear that the ground floor bedroom and shower room with fold-down seat was a big hit with your father. We set up 7 St Marys in this way, with our parents in mind, as they struggle with stairs and it really is ideal for them.

Many thanks for choosing 7 St Marys for your holiday and we hope that you will be returning very soon.

All the best

Ian & Mandy

“Fabulous place”
Reviewed 1 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We spent a week at 7 St. Marys, Arthog and loved everything about it. The location is beautiful and brilliant for walking - a gorgeous 20 minute walk over the railway bridge into Barmouth for example or around the estuary; also further afield up the Arthog falls to the wonderful Cregenan Lakes beneath the mountain of Cadair Idris. We know the area well, having visited for many years.
This was our first visit to 7 St Marys. We were absolutely delighted with it. The owners have taken such care to provide everything you might possibly need to make your stay perfect - from board games and DVD's to a well-stocked kitchen and utility area along with lovely bright rooms.
I stayed with my husband, father and two sons (18 and 20) - in 4 spacious well decorated bedrooms with amazingly comfortable beds. The additional shower room downstairs was also a real bonus. We cannot recommend this lovely home highly enough - thank you Ian and Mandy.

“Great accommodation in an amazing location which offered something for everyone.”
Reviewed 18 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The accommodation fully met the needs of our party from the toddlers to the older ones of us among the party. The holiday home is extremely well equipped and well presented and felt like home away from home. We especially enjoyed the walk to Barmouth and the trail along the estuary, would recommend it to anyone as an ideal place for extended family and group holidays.

“Fantastic house and setting, everything there you might need!!”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a fabulous stay at 7, St Mary's cottage. The house is tastefully decorated and really well equipped. It is in a beautiful setting surrounded by fabulous scenery with easy access to a variety of walks. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay: the holiday and the house met all of our parties needs, which included children, teenagers and elderly people. We will defiantly go back: can't wait!!!

“A lovely well equipped cottage with spacious kitchen/dining area in a beautiful location.”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a lovely couple of weeks in this beautiful cottage. We found it very clean, well equipped and in a stunning, peaceful location. The kitchen and dining room area is spacious, and the lounge comfortable. The bedrooms have plenty of storage space and comfortable bedding. The front garden is a pleasure to sit in and has a lockable bike shed.

It is well positioned for an easy 20 minute walk into Barmouth, where there are many good places to eat and shop. Also, right next to the Mawddach trail for bike rides to Dolgellau (bike hire from Barmouth). There are a few local shops about 5 minutes drive away in Fairbourne, which include a butcher, post office, general store and fish and chip/pizza shop. For those using public transport, the request stop railway station Morfa Mawddach is 5 minutes walk away down the road which the cottage is in. There are so many short local walks criss-crossing the nature reserve area and along the Mawddach trail and across to and up Fegla Fawr with amazing views of the estuary. Also upwards to waterfalls, quarry lakes, Cader Idris and walks above Barmouth. There are numerous places for days out by car - we would recommend Portmerion, Harlech, Talyllyn railway, Castell y Bere and Snowdon area. There is a locally resourced farm called Ynysgyffylog Barn Farm in the road of the cottage which has amazing free range pork and eggs!

The owners have very tastefully renovated and equipped the cottage, and spent time making sure that it has everything that is needed for a comfortable and enjoyable holiday at the cottage. They were very efficient, helpful and friendly throughout the whole process of booking, telling us how to find and get into the cottage, making sure everything was well upon arrival and returning the damage deposit when we returned home. We hope for another stay there as two weeks were not enough!

“A place to go back to”
Reviewed 6 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We love 7 St Marys. The house and location are just great for a family get together.

Wonderful, quiet location. Ideal for cycling, hiking and simply just pottering around.

Bliss.
