“The best place I ve ever stayed!”
Reviewed 25 December 2017 for a stay in November 2017

The fact that I have stayed here 4 times in 12 months says it all. The house is homely, very well equipped and has an outstanding view. The fact that it has ample parking and is dog friendly is the icing on the cake. It is also perfectly situated to enjoy all the amenities of Barmouth and the surrounding area.

A well located roomy house with a good location just a short walk into Barmouth with access across the road to a lovely hardly used beach , I would have rated it excellent it was only let down by lack of attention to outside of the property all the windows other than the balcony windows were very dirty and as they are on the 1st floor you can only clean the bits you can reach , also water poured from the gutter outside the 1st bedroom window when it rained , this was mentioned in visitor book the year before ,did report broken catch on bathroom window which was stuck open ,Heath ,all though being a very nice man ,turned up on last day to service the boiler admitted he had forgotten it

Hello, Thank you for your review of Borthwen. We are committed to maintaining high standards of cleaning and hygiene with regards to the cottage and apologise that the windows where dirty. They are regularly cleaned and had been due to be cleaned before your arrival. Unfortunately, the company that usually does this has been on holiday. It sholuld be done this week. The guttering has been repaired before but the problem has returned, it will now be replaced. A new window catch has been ordered. I'm not sure what you mean by "Heath being a very nice man, turned up on the last day to service boiler admitted he had forgotten it. The boiler was due a service and we had tried to contact you to ask permission to carry this out. Hopefully this didn't inconvenience you too much. Kind regards, Jago Rushton

“Lovely house in great location”

Borthwen is spacious,comfortable holiday accomodation in Barmouth. There are great views over the estuary from the lounge,plenty of seating and the recently replaced beds were very comfortable. Being November it was good to have efficient heating and be nice and snug after our long walks,as it was occasionally wet it was also very useful to have the downstairs utility room to dry our coats and the dog. There was plenty of hot water for a soak in the bath and also a very powerful shower. The location is superb,an easy walk to the town and beach and a park across the road to take the dog for his late night outing. There are good dog friendly eating places in the town. The off road parking is a big plus. We will certainly return to this property.

“Great location, poor beds!”
Reviewed 1 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Barmouth is a lovely place with nice shops and plenty of places to eat and this house is in a great location only a short walk away from the town and has a lovely view from the lounge over the estuary. The house is very well equipped but it was spoiled by the uncomfortable beds and bed linen. The springs in the mattress kept pinging every time we turned over and although the bed linen was clean, it had been dried in the garage which gave it a horrible musty smell. It is for this reason, we would not return.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property? Overall condition of the property

Bathroom cleanliness
Liked best: The location and view over the estuary.
Liked least: Uncomfortable beds.
