Reviews

A beautiful, clean and well equipped property in a fantastic location, tucked away in the peace and quiet with amazing every changing scenery yet only a short drive away to the beach in Aberdyfi and amenities, couldn't have wished for anything better. The two restaurants in the village are well recommended as are the local walks. Good communication and prompt service.Rachael from Lichfield - 4th June 2018
Beautiful property, well maintained and equipped, warm and cosy, great location, spacious, modern decor. Will return! Very efficient company, pleasant staff in office. Angela from Cambridgeshire - 10th November 2017
Lovely property, great quiet rural location but still close enough to facilities.
The Riverside Restaurant in the village is fantastic and highly recomended. The service, food and drinks are amazing but reserve in advance as it's very popular!Gary - 21st August 2017
Lovely setting
We enjoyed visiting Harlech castle, Coed y Brenin and Aberdovey beachFamily from Worcester - 5th August 2017
