Very easy to find using the directions provided. We received a very warm welcome by the owner, the fresh scones and local goodies welcome pack was a nice touch and much appreciated! The bedrooms are of decent proportions. It suited our needs perfectly.
We dined at the Brigands Inn which is very good. We visited CAT, Portmeirion, King Arthur's Labyrinth and hiked up Cader Idris, all were on the doorstep and easy to reach.Family from North Yorkshire - 31st October 2016
