Set in peaceful rural surroundings,with its own garden and long, tree lined drive, Bodfan is an ideal holiday home for grandparents, parents, children and their pets. The large rooms allow everyone to have their own space yet come together for family activities. Bodfan even has its own 'library' room where guests can browse a wide selection of books and read quietly, whilst others watch TV in the large lounge, sitting in front of the multi-fuel stove. Equally, those who come as a group of friends can pursue their own interests but come together for meals and social activities.

Ideal property in countryside setting for those with dogs and looking for a relaxing break. Large paddock attached to house which our dog, Skye (Golden Retriever) loved. Nearest beach situated at Rhoneigr again ideal for dogs for those enjoying watching windsurfing/kiteboarding. Other lovely beaches to visit and country walks a must.

Management response:

Many thanks for your lovely review, I look forward to welcoming you all again in the future. Gillian

We arrived to a lovely welcome, doggie treats and a bottle of wine! The house was beautifully clean and everything we could want was provided, and so much more.
