We had a lovely welcome when we arrived from Marion who made us fell right at home, the apartment itself is wonderful, it's really spacious and has everything you would need, there is plenty of parking and you are only a short walk from the beach and the shops, there are some nice restaurants in town and there is lots to do, we couldn't find anything to fault it and would highly recommend.
Ocean View apartment is amazing. A perfect location, close to the beach with fantastic walks starting literally on the doorstep. We had never been to Barmouth and had no idea what to expect. Arriving at 3pm on a Bank Holiday Saturday was not ideal. As we crawled into the town, it was heaving with holiday makers/day trippers and as we passed the amusements I feared the worst . We arrived at Ocean View, parked outside with no problem (make sure you follow the directions given by Ian and Joanne - DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR SAT NAV) where were met by Ian and Marion, it was an oasis of calm. The apartment is very spacious, there was only two of us but even with four people I couldn't see you being on top of one another. Ian, Joanne and Marion could not have done more to make our stay any better. My husband was able to store his bike in the lockup shed at the back of the property.
As to Barmouth itself, it is a little commercial on the beach front but easily avoided if it's not your thing. We are regular visits to the Lakes for hiking but walking in and around Barmouth provides breath-taking scenery to rival anything the Lakes has to offer. Take a left turn when you leave the apartment enjoy. We will certainly be back again very soon.
What a wonderful property to stay in. Not only do the pictures justice to the property and Barmouth, it truly felt like a home away from home. From the very warm welcome me and my friends received received upon arrival, to the spacious property itself, we couldn't have asked for more. With 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms as well as a spacious kitchen and a spacious living room this property is unusual big for a maximum of 4 people and means you get a lot of value for money. The property is on a slight slope but after a couple of days you don't realise it anymore. While there is no dedicated parking space we never had a problem finding one. As shops, restaurants, the ocean and the beach as well as hiking trails and the train station are all only a few minutes walk away, you will hardly need your car anyway. Within days we felt part of the community rather than strangers visiting. Friendly chats with neighbours and the property owners became part of the daily routine. I highly recommend this place and am sure I will visit again one day.
A great place for our weeks holiday. Parked the car opposite the apartment and never used it all week. Barmouth has one of everything, its a wonderful place to go and visit.
The owners have put everything into making this a special place to stay, they are expert at making sure we settled in immediately. The apartment's decoration and amenities are outstanding; the attention to detail is absolutely "wowee"
(I was not over fond of the animal skin wall decoration opposite the fireplace - for me a bit overstated- perhaps a large map of Barmouth would do?)
The location is a quiet cul-de-sac, a place to commence a walk to town or over the hills with breathtaking views over this majestic river estuary and monumentally enormous sandy beaches extending far away...
My friends sister booked this amazing place but wasn't able to go so my friend Helen had to go alone. She gets confused so I called the owner to explain the situation. They picked my friend up from the station and kept watch over her all week ensuring she caught her return train and informed me so I could pick her up when she arrived back.
Helen was blown away by the luxury of the apartment which provided everything she needed and felt so secure there. She was able to go for walks and enjoyed the town and beach front which were in walking distance form the apartment.
She highly recommends the apartment and plans to return in the future when I hope to be able to join her and experience it for myself.
Super stylish, immaculately presented and luxurious!
Feels like a 5* boutique hotel, modern and spacious with beautiful grand period features. Window seats to take in the fabulous views of the sea, beach and the spectacular sunsets. Beautiful and well equipped kitchen. The apartment is on a quiet but centrally located road within easy walking distance of the beach, harbour and all the shops and amenities in town. Barmouth has plenty of really great independent retailers, bars and restaurants. Mountain walks on the doorstep and the famous Barmouth bridge and Mawddach trail. Roadside parking wasn't a problem and the train station is just a few minutes walk away. Highly recommended.
