“A fairytale break”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I planned this short break as a surprise for my partner, and the host Linda was fantastic. She ensured that there was a lovely bottle of wine waiting when we got there and was on hand for anything we needed.

The cottage itself completely met my expectations, as did the gorgeous surroundings.
Fairly priced, for a perfect relaxing break.

Would highly recommend it and definitely go again.

“Fantastic cottage in wonderful surroundings”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

So pleased we found this beautiful and well-placed cottage! We chose it based on the rave reviews and weren't disappointed. In fact, I think it surpassed our expectations. Linda was a wonderful hostess - she was very friendly and welcoming and left us a lovely welcome basket. There are some beautiful walks right on the doorstep and the nearby restaurant, as recommended by Linda, was well worth a visit. Unsurprisingly, the hot tub was amazing, and just what we needed after making good use of the local footpaths! Thanks again, Linda, for a wonderful week. We hope to be back soon!

“Perfect place to relax and unwind”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I and my wife stayed at this most delightful cottage for a couple of days and I must say that it was fantastic - Linda made us very welcome and provided us with everything we needed and also some wonderful 'extra's' - wine cooling the fridge - fresh milk - along with chocolates and other goodies - absolutely wonderful - thank you so much.
The other reviews say it all - the cottage is beautiful, the surrounding area is peaceful - this place is a gem & we will be sure to return in the future.

“A peaceful oasis”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Just spent a very, very enjoyable week at this property. A beautiful cottage in a perfect location. It was everthing thing we could have hoped for and more. The hot tub proved to be a very welcome rest after a day's walking and became a little adictive.

Our dog loved the garden especially chasing the squirrels. The woodland walks up the river from the back of the cottage were beautiful and Benar Beach (dog friendly) just 3 minutes away by car was amazing. Very few people on it and you could walk for miles.

Linda looked after us very well in a friendly but unobtrusive manner. Giving us plenty of tips about local facilities and we wouldn't have found the dog friendly beach or the fantastic butcher without her help.

We will certainly be booking again and would highly recommend this property, with or without a dog!!

I am so pleased that you loved the area, it never creases to amaze guests how few people seem to be on the local beaches and for that matter on the walks around the cottage, you will always find a place with plenty of space that suits for your time in the sun and yet Barmouth has been buzzing since the start of the school holidays. Thank you and hope to see you both back here and of course your four legged family member. Linda :)

Wonderfully snug accommodation in a tranquil setting. Well placed for getting into the Snowdonia National Park as well as the lovely coastal attractions. Pub and restaurant within 100 yards and shops within 1 mile. Linda, the owner, is extremely welcoming and very helpful.

“I want this cottage!!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed her for our wedding anniversary. I have never stayed anywhere with such personal, wonderful care. We even got a card on our anniversary! The welcome pack was lovely but best of all I found a like-minded lady! All the things I pack 'just in case' hot water bottle? Check. Umbrellas? Check. I could go on and on. Everything I take jic was unnecessary as Linda had already thought of it.
We drove along and thought 'This can't be the right way' Then saw the gate to the cottage. Down a car track and suddenly we were in a different world. The river was right outside the gate and we walked the banks most days but never reached a road. Our dog was just in heaven. The hot tub was lovely albeit with one arm out holding a dog's lead!! Even the plastic glasses I'd taken for the fizz we drank in the tub was unnecessary as was the bottle itself as one had been left in the fridge. The whole place was warm, cosy and we could have spent all day just in the conservatory looking out at the garden. I cannot recommend this place highly enough but book quickly!! We were too late for the weeks we wanted this year!

“Surpassed All Expectations!”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We loved everything about the cottage: the tasteful decor, stunning garden, log burner and hot tub. The welcome pack was indeed most welcome - especially the wine!

It was also very handy to have an Italian restaurant almost on the doorstep and the added bonus was the availability of takeaway pizzas! This was especially so because we'd planned to go out for my birthday dinner on the first night. However, I immediately fell in love with the conservatory and its beautiful view of the garden and ended up eating in. In fact, it was so hard to tear ourselves away that we ended up visiting far fewer places than planned. As a previous visitor commented in the guest book, "The cottage got us"!

The owner, Linda, was very helpful and welcoming, but not in the least intrusive.

Our stay couldn't have been more pleasurable and we look forward to the cottage "getting us" again next year.
