The cottage was clean and well provided, it is in a lovely spot, surrounded by fields and you can see the sea about 5 miles away from the garden. There were eight of us and there was ample space. The beaches are long stretches of golden sand. We caught lots of small crabs from the sea wall at Aberdovey and enjoyed a day at Barmouth, crossing the estuary by the foot ferry at Fairburn. We had several walks which we enjoyed, the best was the Precipice Walk from Dolgellau, amazing views and fairly flat. We also had a day out on the steam train from Tywyn. There was plenty to do. We went in August and although it was busy, no where was over crowded and there was always a place in the car parks or restaurants. . I would definitely reccomend this cottage and this part of Wales.Hilary - 26th August 2017

The Tal-y-Lyn railway is great for kids, also we loved BarmouthLisa and Family - 25th July 2017
Cottage in top condition and well equipped. Property owner very welcoming & friendly. Any minor problems dealt with promptly. Will seriously consider returning next year. Lots of nice beaches to choose from. Good for walking, climbing and bird watching the fish & chips at Friog Beach is one of the best.Winston from East Devon - 15th June 2017
The property is really very nice and great for the whole family. The views are amazing and we particularly enjoyed the waterfals. There is lots to do otherwise in the area with something for everyone.Family Get Together - 5th June 2017
