Reviews

Very high standard of decor. Warm and very comfortable. Thank you. Best of Wales is a professional organisation and one you can trust. You feel confident when booking with them. Very professional and trustworthy. Excellent high standard.John from Birmingham - 12th November 2018
It was in a lovely location with sea views out of the bedroom and living room windows and mountain views out of the kitchen window. The property was very well equipped and modernised, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Alan is an excellent and helpful host. A short walk takes you down to the beach and the Nor Bar (with good food and drink) is about half a mile away. Barmouth has an excellent Co-Op and a variety of shops. Harlech is a short drive from the property and Aberdovey a short train ride across the spectacular Barmouth Estuary. The beaches are beautiful.John from Derbyshire - 3rd October 2018
The property was amazing. A traditional character cottage modernised to the highest standard - the owners are to be congratulated. There's a very neat parking space leading to the tasteful garden area with fabulous sea views, then a practical (tiled floor with underfloor heating), but welcoming entrance leading upstairs to a well laid out modern kitchen and living area with those stunning sea views. The bathroom is ultra modern - even our 2 year old grandson loved the shower and didn't miss his bath at all. If anyone is looking for a small cottage, then this must be the Best in Wales!Ian from Cheshire - 26th September 2018
We had a fantastic stay. Everything that we needed and more was available at the cottage. It was comfortable, well decorated and the owner was very helpful and friendly. We cannot recommend the property enough.Mr Luke Stevens - 8th August 2018
