    Fantastic location and a great cottage which we would recommend to anyone.
    David from Cranleigh, Sep 2017

    A real home from home in an idyllic location. Climb Cader Idris, it's virtually on the doorstep, make an effort to do the Precipe Walk.
    Family from Suffolk , Sep 2017

    Thoroughly enjoyable week in a beautiful property.
    We enjoyed climbing Cader Idris. The Precipice walk is a must, Creggenen lakes and Coed y Brenen for a forest walk. Coffee and cake at T.H.Roberts and dinner at the tapas restaurant in Dolgellau.

    Excellent experience
    See Cwm Bychan and Café Indiana in Fairbourne is great.
    Couple from Herts, Jul 2017

    We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday with our two terriers. The location was very peaceful but close to shops/coffee, the house was comfortable and welcoming and the walking was straight from the front door.
    Barmouth and Harlech beaches are wonderful if you have dogs or children and the view from the top of Cader Idris is spectacular or just sit outside the cottage with a coffee and enjoy the peace.
