Reviews

Amazing property, perfect location, one fabulous holiday! Diolch yn fawr (thank you very much).Martin from Altrincham - 19th February 2018
Excellent. Brilliant location and very well equipped. Was all very easy and went according to plan. Machynclleth was a great base to get back to at the end of an action packed day. The White Lion was good for food. The Red Lion good for a drink. China garden was good for takeaway. The co-op good for shopping. All with walking distance of the property.Katie and Family from Cumbria - 6th August 2017
An interesting property to stay at with a lovely open plan living area which was great for hanging out in. Well thought out and equipped for visitors. Very helpful local point of contact. Welcoming townsfolk.
Recommendations: Wednesday market has good quality produce. Beautiful beach at Aberdovey. See ospreys at Osprey Project. Precipice Walk near Dolgellau is a good walk for all, including middle-aged greyhounds, with superb scenery.Fiona from St Albans - 2nd August 2017
Preliminary stages of searching for a property to buy. This was an ideal pace to stay as a central base for trips as far north as Porthmadog and as far south as Lampeter. All was perfect despite our last minute booking.
Tips: Pick a place like Devils Bridge and trust your SatNav to take you there via some amazing countryside as long as you don't mind steep and narrow roads.Alan from Suffolk - 22nd October 2016
