Reviews

Really enjoyed our stay, beautiful inside and outside. We were welcomed by the owner who was lovely and showed us round the house, made us feel at home and we felt she was very approachable if we needed any further assistance. There was a welcome tray which included the normal tea, coffee, sugar but also some local Bara Brith which was really good! Would recommend this place.Marie from West Midlands - 6th January 2018
Beautiful locationFamily from Liverpool - 2nd September 2017
Relaxing and homely and very child and dog friendly. Aberdaron beach has all the facilities, a blue flag and a place where dogs can go. Great waves for body boarding at Aberdaron and Hells Mouth.Surfers from the Wirral - 31st August 2015
Quiet and peaceful retreat in beautiful countryside - close to many amazing beaches, country pub and smart resort of Abersoch

Coastal walks at Porth Dinllean, Morfa Nefyn, Abersoch etc. Recommend the steam train from Porthmadog. It was difficult to get restaurant bookings in Abersoch as very busy, best to plan ahead but great takeaways from The Creel and The Coconut KitchenFriends from Stone - 20th July 2015

"Family Holiday"

The Farmhouse was an excellent choice - well done me ! always a worry when first visting an area - The accommodation was first class and the surrounding perfect for our two children 5 and 6 - "The best Holiday we have had" you hear them say.

We normally go abroad but not now - we will be back to Wales.

Jeanette MacMurray - 18th August 2011

"Stunning through and through"

Fabulous!! From the minute we walked through the door we felt at home and so comfi. Had a fantastic week just walking, relaxing, walking down to lovely beach. Easy to reach everywhere Most of all the children enjoyed helping to feed the pet lambs - nearly took them home with us! Already booked to come again in the summer - can't wait!!!!

Will Hardy - 2nd March 2011
