The first impression we had, it's really small. Now after almost 6 days the size of the cottage is no longer a challenge. Rather there are lot of details we would have solved different.
Finally it keeps an old house. One of the disadvantages is humidity, what makes the house smell.
What we finally missed was stowage for our clothes.
On the other side the cottage is well equipped and lot of details show that it is not an income property rather a place for the family.
With all the nice surrounding I gladly recommended this cottage for other guests coming here to walk.
Rating more 3 than 4 but definitely above average.
on doorstep for all local amenities shops pubs and all eating places.Only drawbacks is distance having to park wasn't sure of free parking space Adrian mentioned. going on the Our dog was very happy she loves the beaches and the mountains.
Cottage was beautiful, clean comfortable, cannot fault it. We had a short break for 3 days and throughly enjoyed it. Barmouth is a lovely place and the cottage was close to all we needed. Would recommend it to friends and family. Would definately return.
This is the second time staying at Arden House, and we will definitely booking again. Located in the centre of Barmouth, the house is in the perfect position. Everything you need is supplied, and its great to also have the bit of outdoor space to sit and relax after a long day on the beach.
Would happily recommend this cottage.
First time in the property but we have been going to Barmouth for many years. Wanted a quite weekend so hence going in March. Property was clean and had all the facilities we required. Unusual layout of property which is that the kitchen/diner on the ground floor with living room down in the basement. Not a problem though. Overall we had a great weekend where we could leave the car parked up as the property is set centrally in the town but with very little disturbance from passers by.
This isn't my first visit to Arden House and hopefully won't be my last. The cottage is ideally placed in the heart of Barmouth and convenient for all it has to offer.
Five minutes walk and we are on the beach with the dogs.
The cottage is exceptionally well equipped and the decor's homely. The heating works well and the shower is good.
A lovely welcome basket of essentials ( wine and cake) is really nice.
Would recommend this to anyone.
My wife and I stayed 3 nights over New Year and it was just what we needed to escape the post Christmas blues. The location is perfect, within minutes walking distance to the beach and Barmouth hosts a wealth of quirky pubs, cafes and coffee shops. Arden House is very well equipped, quick and easy to heat (thanks to the combi boiler) and overall our stay was very comfortable. The only downside was the musty smell of damp which to be honest was evident from the minute we opened the front door. Having owned a house with a basement dining room I know how hard it is in Winter to tackle this issue, especially when the house is not occupied 24/7. Nevertheless once we'd had the heating on for a few days the smell did seem to subside....or maybe we just got used to it! This would not deter us from booking again and we look forward to visiting later this year.
