A return visit to the area led us to discover Coedmor run by Leo and Mike. This wonderful old Gentleman's Residence has stunning views from front and side rooms of the house across the Mawddach estuary towards Cader Idris. Our double bedroom was one of them. Definitely take the opportunity to wander round the delightful and interestting garden. Look out for the Ice Cave.
Leo and Mike are the ultimate hosts and nothing is too much trouble. When we arrived we were greeted with welcome tea and delicious home-made lemon cake which we had in the conservatory. Breakfast is superb and we didn't need much for lunch. A stunning fruit display, home-made potato bread, varied sausages from local butchers, fluffy scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, as well as all the usual breakfast ingredients ... I could just keep going! And Leo does a great bolied egg!
The tastefully furnished house is hung with paintings by artist Leo and has been dressed with delightful & imaginative touches. The bathroom was stocked with Basic Earth products and the towels were fluffed up daily.
We were really made to feel at home at Coedmor and cannot rate it highly enough.
