“Delightfully Self-Contained”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

I found Estuary Cottage on the net while searching for somewhere to stay for the celebration of a friend's birthday. Set in a lovely garden, It came as a surprise to learn that it had once been a shack in a railway yard! The little one track railway runs between the venue and the estuary opposite Portmeirion and the two-coach trains run quietly and during the day only.

The room is small but contains everything we needed and it had its own entrance off the deck. Quiet and private, it is about a 5 minute walk from the excellent local pub so no need to use the car.

Our hostess, Anne, couldn't have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and we had a bit of a battle to persuade her that we didn't want the full breakfast she was so keen to provide!
Very good atmosphere and highly recommended!

Thankyou for your wonderful hospitality, you
Made us feel so welcome even though we were a last minute booking. the beautiful gardens and scenery made it a really special place to stay. The garden room was very comfortable and well equipped and the breakfast was delicious. Would love to stay again next time we are in the area, the only problem was that it was quite difficult to get back from Harlech late in the evening but this was due to the bank holiday trains not running and taxi difficulties. Thankyou!!

Our 3 night stay was THE most relaxing break we've had. Ann and Bob's b&b is a little haven of homeliness. Superb hearty breakfasts, stunning views across the estuary to Portmeirion, private patios, fabulous picturesque but extremely child friendly gardens (the photos just don't do it justice), fresh eggs from their chickens, comfy beds, en suite showers and a national train service that stops on the door step .... What more could you want! Ann and Bob are the epitome of helpfulness, absolutely nothing is too much trouble for them. We thoroughly recommend staying with Ann and Bob and we will definitely be returning in the future .with the grandkids

Having originated from Harlech and living in South Wales, I return "home" every few years, always having problems finding that right B & B. This was perfect and I will return next time I visit.

My wife and I were made very welcome and we can see why most of the guests return year after year - we shall be amoung them.

The viewes across the estuary to Port Meirion and also of Snowdon in the distance was so clear, only being compimented by the gardens and how well they are nurchured.

Our room was "The Garden Room" looking like a chalet but warm and inviting and just perfect for our needs. The bed was so soft and inviting after a long drive and the whole place was so quiet and peaceful.

Breakfast was the best I have ever eaten, cooked fresh and plenty of it, even fresh ground filter coffee - how I start my days even at home...........

No negative points here, not even the train passing so close, but not often and never late or too early.

Hint - feed the chicken Hob Nobs - you will taste them a few days later in your eggs,

Again, good, friendly and quality throughout ................ diolch yn fawr iawn to you both, thanks to Bob for the food and Anne for the rest, even thanks for the cat, who was always friendly. See you both soon, next year maybe.

Fantastic location for all of the essential North Wales must sees. Bob & Ann are first class - top notch hosts, nothing is too much trouble. We stayed for 2 nights and had a thoroughly relaxing time. We would highly recommend staying with Bob and Ann and will be returning in the future. Final comment has to go to Bob's breakfast 10/10.

We stayed in the caravan with our two children aged 5 and 1. They loved the garden to roam around in, with the chickens to inspect for eggs each day, and the garden railway to play with if Bob was around. There's a swing and they also have some garden toys we could use too. Bob and Anne's local knowledge helped us search the best places to visit, and their hospitality is second to none.
Amazing value for the money, and if you get the weather like we did then there's no better base to explore Snowdonia from. We will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: The caravan is great for families as it gave a bit of privacy and more space if there are other gues...
