The location is great for exploring Anglesey and Snowdonia and also the Lynn Peninsula. There are some fantastic off road cycle routes close to the property. The chalet was very snug and comfortable the owners are very friendly and helpful with local information and bike storage. Definitely a return visit is in order
The location of this well equipped cottage is brilliant. Several walks from the door plus Zip Works walkable too. Amazing garden although it is on an incline so decent mobility needed. The hot tub has stunning views and was most welcome after some long hikes. Comfy beds. Well equipped kitchen, garden, games room and utility shed. You'll need to duck under doorways if you are of average height or more but it is a cottage after all! Footpath past the house to town cuts out the need to use the car so much and cuts off time from GOOGLE maps. The owner called a couple of days before we arrived to...more
This cottage was comfortable and clean, the dogs loved the secure garden. The host was lovely and helpful as were the neighbours and all made us extremely welcome, what a lovely community. The Location is wonderful with stunning views and a lovely walk up the mountain behind, the hose provided clear instructions at to the paths to follow. It is well situated for trips out to either the beach at Blackrock Sands or out into the stunningly beautiful countryside. There is plenty of room both inside the cottage and out with good parking. We had a paddleboard and blow up boat with us and there was r...more
We had a fantastic time here will come again...very clean place..beautiful views from garden ..beach 10 minutes away...residents of village are so friendly really nice place..thank you for a lovely stay Glyn
Lovely spacious well equipped property in a great location in Barmouth. Had a lovely holiday here and will definitely return.
What an amazing place. Dafydd was so friendly and helpful and the house was cosy and had everything we needed. The surrounding area was breathtaking and we all enjoyed the seclusion and peace. The children loved building a damn and the Dog had the freedom to roam free . I can’t recommend this place enough and we will definitely be returning. Plenty to do within the grounds and a great base for exploring North Wales and Anglesey. Thank you so much .. this was exactly the break we all needed
Great location and a lovely welcome from the owners . Zig zag is clean , comfortable and spacious. Would 100% recommend this holiday home and will be definitely visiting again as so much to do in the local area .
My wife & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tan Llan Cottage. It was clean & full of 'old world' charm. Our host/landlady was very friendly & full of information & she had left an incredibly full 'welcome pack' for us. If we come to N. Wales again we will definitely stay there again !
This cottage is perfect. An ideal location, a beautiful view, warm and welcoming with everything you could possibly need. Dilys was a great host, there to show me how everything worked when I arrived, completely respected my privacy during my stay, but available if I had any enquiries or problems with the cottage. (which I didn't). A beautiful part of the country to explore the wild rocky coast line, small towns and hill tops, all within easy reach. Great place to take the dog and the small enclosed garden meant he could go out easily last thing at night and first thing. Highly recommend.
We visited with my parents who have slight mobility issues and this cottage was perfect for them, comfortable, warm and cosy
This is the second time we have stayed here . Dowlais and Zig Zag cottage are perfectly located to visit the many attractions in Snowdonia from the beaches to the mountains. Friendly owners and well equipped accommodation.
From the time you arrive until the time you leave, this place feels homely, it's presented very clean and meets with every bit of functionality. The host is exceptional. We stayed a full week and we're able to relax and use this ideally located apartment as a base to explore Snowdonia and North Wales. Highly recommended.
The Cottage was in a great location for exploring the area. The cottage itself was quaint modern exceptionally clean and plenty of room for the two of us. Lovely little touches left like tea coffee milk and fruit. The owner who greeted us was very polite and chatty and made sure we had everything we needed. It was a wonderful short break and would definitely recommend to family and friends.
A warm welcome and a very good place to stay. The accommodation was very well appointed and comfortable. A most enjoyable stay .
Staying at the Garden Flat is just the most enjoyable experience. I have stayed here many times and each time as i walk in i get this lovely welcome back feeling. It holds so many family memories for me and this is my happy place There is everything you need in the flat and if help is required the staff are always very happy to help
My husband and i had a lovely week at Oakley Cottage .It is in a lovely quiet area and has superb views.We hope to visit again as we loved it.
A lovely bungalow.Spacious,The best place we have stayed for the view,across the bay or towards Shell Island.A photographer's dream for dramatic,colourful sunsets and ever changing cloud formations.Wonderful drives into the hills or moors and walks on almost deserted beaches.Whispering Waves was a perfect place to stay to celebrate or Golden Wedding Anniversary.It was also suit a family.
Our third stay at Captain’s Beach House did not disappoint. Even though the late-October weather was a little challenging at times, this was still the perfect place to relax and enjoy the fabulous views and walks. The property is immaculate, tastefully designed and decorated and simply a lovely place to be.
The location is first class, the apartment is very well appointed, we couldn't fault it. We intend to visit again and the sun shone
Wonderful location and perfect for our party of 10. We enjoyed our stay at Talwrn Bach which was clean, comfortable and excellent value for money. Good location for Harlech, Barmouth, Snowdon and beaches.
We stayed week commencing the 1st of October. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, nice towels and bedding. Everything you needed in the kitchen, very powerful shower and living room/dining room really nicely decorated, comfortable settees and a large television. Lovely enclosed garden and perfect location for the shops, pub and the beach. We will definitely be returning next year 10 out of 10.
We rented these 2 apartments as we were holidaying with our family members and it was ideal as the two apartments are inter connected if you want or completely self contained should you wish. both apartments are well equipped and fully furnished to a high standard. Each flat comprises of 2 bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and bathroom. the downstairs flat has also an en-suite to the double bedroom. both apartments have lovely outlook at the back to the steam trains that pass the end of the garden and there are outside seating in the garden. the upstairs flat has a magnificent balcony over looking the...more
Anne and mick are a lovely couple who were on hand to meet us as we arrived. The cottage is just stunning I cannot fault it at all the cleanliness was outstanding as was the whole cottage and the garden area is simply beautiful it’s located in a beautiful location close to so much places to explore either by foot or car. We had a wonderful holiday but the cottage and Ann and mick made it perfect. If we could ever come back we definitely would and we have returned home now wishing we were still at the cottage. Thank you Ann and mick.
What a lovely place to stay wish we could of stayed longer the cottage was so nice & cosy & had everything you need for a little getaway was brilliant what a lovely place to stay will definitely book this again & it’s right by the castle so the view was awesome & the beach 30min walk would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
The cottage was clean and very comfy we had a great stay there. Bed comfortable and lovely soft towels. The garden is beautiful and the view over the fence wonderful.
Comfortable beds, spacious kitchen, huge bath, lovely view. Sofa and chair comfortable. Would appreciate a tin opener and more coat hangers. Beware the sloping ceilings especially in the main bedroom, the unwary (like me) could bang their head if not concentrating. Even so this would not stop me staying here again.
We are quite seasoned visitors to self catering accomodation. Sandcastles ticked all the boxes. Accessible, easy parking, bright, immaculately clean, welcoming, modern interior, very well equipped, thoughtfully laid out. We left out the cherry on the top…. the view, mesmerising! Makes a holiday at any time of the year. Provided a multitude of combinations: sea, mountains, southerly sunshine, clouds, rain, wind, nighttime flickering lights, all beautifully captured through the lounge window! What is not to love!
Somson's Place is a very comfortably modern bungalow, every thing is there that you need for a perfect holliday. Morfa bychan has many very pleasant walks with miles of beach and coastal walk with Cricceth, Borth y guest and Porthmadock an easy walk.
Overall the cottage was very clean and comfortable. A brilliant location for walking from the door and going to the pub!
Having previously visited in October 2019 and 2021 (COVID-19 lockdown in 2020 prevented a visit then), a return autumn visit is a must. This is a really cosy apartment and was ideal for the two of us. An easy walk around Porthmadog, to the shop and of course to Porthmadog Harbour station for trains to Blaenau Ffestiniog, Tanybwlch, Beddgelert and Caernarfon. On this visit we saw that work was in progress for an outdoor stair case to the decking from the parking area. For the electric car owners, there are now two charging points. Not sure what company they are paired with, as we are did not...more
We really enjoyed our stay. The house was well equipped and very bright and airy. It is close to the town and all the amenities but also nice and quiet. Near enough the National Park for walking in the hills and the coast for coastal walks
This was such a lovely cottage, amazing views and lovely locations. We spent most of our time there in the conservatory looking at the views. It was very clean when we arrived. We hope to stay there again. Thank you
The property has everything that you need for a week away. The location is stunning, there are plenty of walks that can be done right from the property. If you love exploring then the slate mines are amazing. I would highly recomend go below underground adventures if you like adrenaline pumping adventure. The only bad thing about the property was that the beds could have been more comfortable but apart from that its a great place to stay.
This place was ideal for us, modern and spacious . It was very well equipped. Location is perfect for North Wales exploration. Walking distance to caernarfon. I would love to stay here again.
Great view provided of the harbour from the rental property. It was clean, tidy and well represented for our stay. Well done everybody concerned.
In a week of very wet weather we really appreciated the location & comfort of River's Edge. Very well equipped (we cooked on 5 nights) and close to pretty much everything. On downpour days it was interesting to watch the comings and goings in the harbour...although windscreen wipers might have been useful on a couple of occasions! Lots of helpful tips from the owner, and good service from STS. The keycode box is not the most user-friendly, but that was our only small gripe. We hope to return.
I've been coming to Porthmadog for 51 years and love the place. This apartment is excellent and everything you need. plus the weather was fantastic, to go out on the balcony in a morning and have your coffee watching the wildlife and the sea coming in and out was my favourite thing. I am definitely booking 2 weeks next time, I couldn't fault anything at all. the beds were really comfortable which was great for me having arthritis. Having a washer was super handy. highly recommend to anyone.
The cottage was equipped with everything we needed spotless very cosy friendly owners gave us some useful advice on places to visit and the best places for eat which we found very helpful which all added to a fantastic week in Wales. Regards Mrs Mchale
Love this place. Have been returning here once or twice a year for several years. Location is perfect and it is very well equipped.
A fabulous view from the lounge and bedroom made the apartment an ideal place to relax, read and watch the world go by, the apartment was clean and comfortable, nice added touch the owners left some treats on our arrival. Ideally situated for coastal walks, exploring tourist attractions and the town centre was in walking distance. We would definitely stay again. Our only criticism was the garden looked neglected and had so much potential.
A lovely location. Would just recommend bedside tables to place books, drink etc on in the main double bedroom.
Have been staying at this property on and off for 50years. Been under different ownerships in this period. Always satisfird. The current owners maintaining to very high cleanliness and facilities excellent. Only complaint is the TV reception, very poor needs attention
We enjoyed another comfortable week at Oakley Views, our second visit. Welcome of milk, welsh cakes and flowers was appreciated. The apartment is perfect for the two of us with direct views to the Heritage Train Station (which we come for) but also to the estuary for bird spotting, which we also enjoy very much. The heating and water controls are easy to use and don't need to be on for long for comfort. We enjoy shopping in the High Street - the butcher and fishmonger are particularly good and the kitchen has everything needed to make all our meals. We hope to return as we know that a clean, c...more
We have had another lovely stay. The fishing was good much to the delight of husband and son. The house was comfy and warm the balcony is so nice to sit and enjoy the sound of the river. A comfy armchair or small sofa in the dinning hall would help those of us who struggle with the stairs. We lookk forward to our next visit.
We stayed for 5 nights here and had a lovely stay. Firstly, the location is perfect, the village itself is beautiful with lots of lovely walks and within easy distance to snowdon and zip world, both of which we made full use of. The cottage itself was great. Facilities were good, comfy beds and all ammenities, even bowls for our dog. We would definitly stay again.
Excellent property. Everything you could possibly need provided. Area at the back provided a football net for the boys. People mention problems with TV but we accessed what we needed! Turn right outside the door and cross a small road. Go through the gap between the cafe and you are on the sea front. Very quaint quiet resort. There are no shops but Porthmadog is a very short drive away or 15 minute walk. We fetched fish and chips from there to eat on the benches on the sea front. Very central for visiting other parts of Wales. One slight negative it says parking for two cars. Bit tight if y...more
Great position on harbour. Very clean and bright. As others have commented instructions for use of appliances, TV, oven etc would help considerably! Shelves in kitchen very high a stepping stool would certainly be a bonus!
We had a lovely week in this beautiful little apartment, very well equipped, attention to detail much appreciated. Perfect location, the views from just outside are stunning.
Great location, comfortable bed with lovely duvet. Shower curtain would be better moved out about 6 inches.
We had a lovely holiday, the flat was well equipped and comfortable, the only downside was the kitchen equipment could have been cleaner, the bowl and drainer rack was greasy, the microwave was not cleaned after use and was rusty, we could not use it, we did report this and was told it would be replaced, this did not turn up before the end of our holiday.
We enjoyed another stay at Harbour Station View. The flat is perfectly sited, comfortable and well appointed. My only gripe re. this visit is that the crockery and utensils were not all properly clean. ...eg. tea stains in the mugs. We had to wash all before use. Apart from that I am happy to recommend Harbour Station View.
Easy and clear instructions about arrival etc etc. The cottage is exactly as described in the post. Everything is clean and tidy. Unfortunately we could not get the tv to work a few nights, but the wifi was good and we had the laptop along, so we survived. There is literally everything you need in the cottage. We cooked in 2 nights and played some of the games that's there. The others we ate in the village pubs.. unfortunately our dog was not allowed in a few places and didn't want to leave her alone in the cottage. There is plenty of walking information material to read and we followed a few ...more
Had a lovely week at this apartment weather was mixed but did not spoil our break as it nice to see the changing scene of the harbour the accommodation itself was cosy and warm and comfortable and had everything we needed ,myself being disabled found it very suitable will certainly ask for this apartment again on future visits to the area.
Just back from Portmadoc. Our eighth stay on Soith Snowdon Wharf/ the fifth time in Island views. We were doubtful about time of year but apart from a few showers we had brilliant sunshine every day which made it ideal for browsing the many shops on high street. Our only downside was TV reception in evenings ( Limited to just 2 channels) and even these channels kept Pixelating ) The apartment really needs a better television to access WiFi including Netflix. This would not be a major outlay considering the apartment is rented out for most of the year. ( this is just a personal opinio...more
The flat was clean and comfortable,warm with heaters and blankets.Ideal for two people .The view was lovely whatever the weather and the wildlife ,tides and weather provide constant change and interest. I would definitely visit again.
Loverly welcome cakes, tea and coffee, well equipped accommodation that’s extremely comfortable with fantastic views of the harbour. Grate location within walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants. Plenty of good walks and Pet friendly
A great accommodation in a good central location in Snowdonia. Very clean and well maintained house with a large space for 2 people. The hosts made us very welcome even offering home made pizza one night. The only issue we have was the restricted head room on the first floor, due to planning issues. These restrictions made the shower attachment unusable. Even getting in and out of the bath could pose a problem for tall guests. Not withstanding these restrictions the accommodation is superb.
Very good would use again great spot good size and good quality fittings , shower of good quality but not user friendly.
very satisfactory and ideally located for the Ffestiniog Welsh Highland Railways. Nice view over the harbour
The Chalet was cute work well for 3 adults, it had everything you needed. The views where just amazing, there was so many places around the area to go grate seafood restaurants, but just as happy to spend the day looking at the view. Fantastic for family's and couples. Booked for next year before we left.
Family of four, just fitted - was small, but perfectly kitted out. Lots of cooking, and the kitchen had the full range of usable utensils. Always a bug bear of mine when they don't! The cottage was easy to find once we had worked out that Ysgold is welsh for school. The hosts are local and we were able to chat to them if needed (we didn't but chatted anyway). The cottage is very comfortable, and the hosts warm personality shone throughout. Didn't take full advantage of the pizza oven! The location is BEAUTIFUL! As it was our first time (as a family) in that area, we chose to do the tourist tra...more
We had a wonderful family holiday in Gestania House. It was clean and comfortable and had everything we wanted, just would have liked some drawers for clothes in the second double bedroom. It was lovely to have three showers The location is amazing, perfect for the beaches and the bay. We loved to sit on the bslcony and look at the fantastic views across to the water and mountains. We would definitely stay there again.
On paper , this accommodation is unimpressive - a bit old, a bit remote, no WiFi... In reality it is wholly magical. Enter the jolly yellow door and a cozy , well equipped and surprisingly roomy awaits. Unpretentious but so very welcoming. Beds all comfy. No idea about the telly - we never switched it on. Instead we sat in the charming front yard entranced by the glory of the view, and the intimacy of the ocean. Perfect , genuinely perfect for lovers of peace. A week here removed my troubles as surely as any drug. Magical sunsets, visits from dolphins, all just magical. One of the bes...more
We had a wonderful holiday. The bungalow was very clean and comfortable. The bedding was excellent and beds comfortable but could do with a second pillow on the twin beds. The kitchen was obviously newly fitted and really nice but could do with more glasses, mugs and cutlery. Also another (larger) saucepan, measuring jug and casserole dish.We managed but making gravy in a mug for instance isn’t ideal. A milk saucepan too would be good. Also a washing line and please, please a bath mat (nobody takes one of them on holiday with them!). Bath, shower and hot water all excellent. The location and...more
A very comfortable cottage, well equipped and in a delightful location. Perfect for using as a base to explore Snowdonia
We just returned from a week at Waterfall Cottage and had a fantastic time. The cottage itself is close to the heart of Blaenau Ffestiniog with shops and bakery just a short walk away, while at the same time quiet and secluded. All we heard during the nights was the waterfall in the distance - only occasionally would the neighbours from the house down the road walk past. The cottage is in a fantastic state and looks freshly renovated. The living area is cozy and functional, the fireplace provides plenty of warmth. The decoration is wonderful - see if you can find all the wooden mice hidd...more
A lovely converted cottage , if you want a week of complete rest , tranquility, amazing views and see only the occasional other human being, you will love this place.
Borth y Gest and surrounding areas are excellent for beach, and walking holidays and the house is well placed for both. Property is spacious, with good sized rooms. some furniture close to end of life (eg bedroom wardrobes), but generally ok. Access will make it difficult for some, and garden is also unsuitable for some. Note also that it isn't fully enclosed. Overall, had a great holiday and would certainly consider returning.
Stopped here first week in October 2022 and loved every minute. The place is set in a fantastic location only 2 mins from beautiful beach. The views from the lounge are breathtaking and as it’s south facing always warm. The sea fishing is fantastic and the size of the sea bass is amazing
It's the second time at jacks and it was good to be there great for town and watching trains 10/10
We had a fabulous time in Porthmadog, the view from the apartment was spectacular, what a treat to wake up overlooking the harbour and watching the world go by. Would recommend the stay absolutely....
This is an excellent place to stay. The views are brilliant especially that of t the railway. This is our second time and we will be back. The service received from std supplemented the holiday.
Fantastic location overlooking the sea with a lovely garden having a raised decked area. Everything was catered for in the bungalow with lots of information given about the area. Very clean and comfortable. A short walk to a beautiful beach. Will definitely be returning.
We enjoy our visits to North Wales, as it offers a variety of interesting walks, activities and a friendly environment. This flat is a great base for these activities, especially as we enjoy visiting the Ffestiniog railway, and the local seaside, as well the occasional mountain walk when the weather permits. The views over the estuary are stunning, and constantly changing with the tide. We enjoy recording the different birds every year, and occasionally see some rarer species, which is great fun. Sitting out on the balcony just watching the tide is very relaxing! This flat is compact, but...more
A well equipped, small apartment in a lovely location within walking distance of the town centre. The apartment was clean and tidy,
The location was fantastic and nice and peaceful. Loads of walks straight from your doorstep, only met a few people whilst out walking. Would definitely go back.
Sea breeze house is in a convenient location with accessible woodland behind where it is ideal to walk your dog, especially on hot days, as it was when we stayed there. The house is very attractive inside with modern kitchen and shower room. The furniture/ carpets etc are in excellent condition and it is well equipped throughout. We had a comfortable and relaxed stay and would happily return another year.
A very pleasant and comfortable villa to stay at in a very nice town.plenty of things to do and amenities. The Ffestiniog railway excellent.
The accommodation was clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Lovely views over the harbour with all ameneties just a shortwalk away. Surrounded by beautiful sceneery. All round satisfaction and will certainly book to go back again.
A small but warm and cosy cottage. Everything you need to self cater. Excellent view and walks from the front door.
We were lucky enough to get an August bank holiday booking here at relatively short notice, the location is just perfect, parking if free on the road outside and due to the fact we were walking distance to all the shops cafes and beach meant we didn’t have to move the car all weekend, beach is large and mostly sandy, section for taking the dog on with you, house is large, very spacious, beds are extremely comfy and there is lots of choices for toilets baths and showers, well equipped kitchen, great smart tv to watch or Netflix is available too, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definite...more
Lovely and cheery cottage in a great location. Plenty of excellent walks from the cottage or within a short drive. Close to Shell Island and other great beaches at Harlech & Barmouth. Harlech Castle is nearby and definitely worth a visit. Victoria Pub is less than ten minutes walk serving good food and excellent beer at a fair price. Artro valley going up to Llyn Cwm Bychan and the Roman Steps is fabulous although the road is very narrow with passing places. Another must is the Mawddach estuary bridge and Mawddach Way from Barmouth with spectacular views. Hope to return soon and would definite...more
Probably the best location in Porthmadog. The flat is decently equipped. The soft seating in the main room is really comfortable, and gives you the best view you could ask for.
Perfect cottage to stay in Beddgelert. Very comfortable including the double bed. The kitchen fully equipped for our needs. Couldn’t fault anything apart from there being no guest book which is always useful to see where other guests had visited or which restaurants they had eaten at. Would definitely stay at Quarryman’s cottage again.
This is typical of traditional Welsh cottages in the area, retaining much of its character whilst having been sensitively modernised. The accommodation is as shown and described in the STS website. (The garden and rotary washing line were not available to us during our stay for safety reasons.) The quiet location and friendly but not intrusive neighbour were much appreciated. There are lovely destinations for all tastes and abilities within easy reach of the cottage and we ran out of time in our two weeks before we ran out of things to do. We were very lucky with the weather. Don't miss the...more
A fabulous location looking out over the estuary - views from very window! Fascinating watching herons, egrets etc. A lovely balcony off the living room which gets the sun. The property was warm and cosy with everything needed for a short stay. An easy walk into town for shops. Lovely walks from the property round to Borth Y Gest and the coastal path. Will definitely return!
The house is large, warm and comfortable. Well equipped and with fabulous views of the Snowdonia range. Very handy for the town and supermarkets. Would definitely book again
A tidy and well equipped flat. The living room/kitchen super with views of the busy harbouf. Bedroom with plenty of storage and comfy bed. Shower room dreadful!
Love it. Not for everyone. Views. Remoteness. Peace. Super comfortable. Bed and sheets were great. Hot tub was a win. Customer service was great
We had a lovely weeks stay thank you . Just a few notes , a small non stick saucepan would be useful please. There was plenty of crockery/mugs and cutlery. The king size bed was very comfortable but could be much improved with quality bedding . We had fabulous weather but we were unable to sit outside at the back to relax or eat due to the extremely uncomfortable outdoor furniture. We ended up buying a pair of fold up chairs !! The cottage location is perfect and we've stayed in Porthmadog many times at various properties . The local Welsh hill and coastal walks are the best !!
This was a lovely comfortable apartment. The location was ideal. It was well equipped. We brought our little dog, and it was a shame there is no private outside space. However we did have a lovely stay.
A warm and comfortable cottage in a very convenient position not only for Porthmadog but also for visiting Snowdonia and the Llŷn Peninsular.There are lovely seating areas outside for when the weather permits and the views from the front of the cottage are fantastic. There is an abundant supply of hot water and the kitchen is extremely well equipped. We have stayed here several times already and certainly intend to come back again.
Loved the property, had great character and plenty of room for 13 of us. I would recommend that the owners look at providing fans in the height of the season due to the rooms being very hot, and although a hoover is in the property to keep tidy a mop and bucket would be useful too. (Maybe there was one but we couldn't locate it) The pool was fantastic a good size that could accommodate a large family, much fun was had here. A wonderful holiday with lots of laughter. The property was just ideal and at a reasonable price. I would look at returning in the future with my family.
The bungalow was comfortable and cosy, kitchen is well equipped and everywhere was clean. There was no info telling us when bin day was so unfortunately we missed it, also could do with having two toilets but that was my only criticism, overall we had a great time and a lovely stay.
As soon as I walked in the front door I loved the cottage. So homely and comfy. Great patio on the riverbank with amazing views. 2 minutes walk to the shop and pubs in beautiful Beddgelert. Everything you need for a holiday in Wales. Will definitely be returning in winter when we can sit in front of the lovely fire.
Great base to tour Snowdonia, a few pubs and very nice pizza parlour, there's also a bistro for food and drinks. A selection of walks from Beddgelert means you dont have to use the car. But make sure you pack for all weathers.
Bath Cottage is in an excellent location with amazing views. Overall the accommodation is comfortable however the wet room is tired , unpleasant and needs replacing.
Great views of Porthmadog, the harbour, steam railway and mountains. Free on street parking, near the town centre with a short walk to Borth y Gest.
Enjoyed this particular holiday let for over eleven years, approximately twenty weeks of stays in this period. Difficult to find any negatives! Noticed neighbours understandably getting touchy regarding the parking, several now dictating there parking frontage with cones to deter. Also previously approached to move car when outside a neighbours frontage. Unfortunately the downside of living in a popular tourist destination.
A good convenient location which we enjoy. Some attention to detail still needed, requires new kitchen bin and outside light, and wifi would be useful.
I’ve visited borth y gest all my life and the location never fails to amaze me. The property was lovely the decor was tasteful and it was clean apart from a few cobwebs which we all have. The bed mattresses aren’t the best we could feel the springs and the shower had a slight leak but that aside I have no complaints it felt like home from home and provided myself and my family all the home comforts for our well deserved holiday.
We were not able to go and sadly were not able to get a reimbursement from cottages.com. I will not book with them again.
The cottage is in a very nice location by the harbour and close to the high street.. Minor concerns were the lack of information regarding rubbish disposal. outdated information leaflets, poor condition of one double mattress. The agents have been advised of these. Observations were the outside patio area was neglected and partially obstructed by scaffolding.
We stayed at Butterfly Chalet on a site we know well as the chalet we have stayed in over previous years was not available. The chalet was very clean and well looked after, plenty of space for us all and situated on a lovely site. It was very quiet and relaxing, especially at night, and the site is very close to a number of fab places that kept the kids entertained. We will definitely stay at Butterfly chalet again.
We have stayed in this flat before, it is well equipped with breathtakingly views. Watching the sun rise over the cob is spectacular. The flat needs a deep clean , the cleaner does a good job in her allotted time it really needs a good clean, skirting boards for example, rug is filthy. Mould is a health hazard for folk with breathing problems. However we had a great holiday.
The house is in a very good position and garden was lovely, however the property needs maintenance all the blinds were broken the front door looks like someone has tried to kick it. It is quite badly equipped there was no can opener or whisks there was only six of most things which meant we had to wash up and not use the dishwasher. We emailed the agent a week in because the conservatory was leaking he never got back to us. I have slight mobility issues and I found the polished wooden floor’s awful
We have stayed at Topdeck a number of times over the last few years. We have noticed the property becoming less well maintained. We have reported a number of faults on the last stay. On this stay the shower was still almost impossible to turn on. The washbasin waste was still broken. The decor needs to be freshened up and skirting boards cleaned especially in bathroom. No towels were provided due to Covid regulations , but the mattress protectors on bed had not been laundered. The pillows smelled of sweat and had no pillow protectors. I think this is a greater risk of Covid than not supplying ...more
A lovely cottage in a quiet and idyllic location. Very comfortable and clean with plenty of room. The owner made us feel very welcome and at ease as soon as we arrived
We revisited Beddgelert after a 40 year absence having spent many weekends there in the past. We found the village unspoilt and yet with all amenities for a visitor or tourist. There are plenty of places for evening meals, snacks etc and a tardis of a village shop which sells most things one is likely to have forgotten. The cottage itself, Can yr Afon, is made special by it's location and garden. It is on the edge of the village; just a five minute walk to the centre. One boundary of the garden is the river which changes from peaceful gurgles to roaring depending on how full it is. The garden...more
Nothing fancy to see here, but a comfy enough small flat in an *excellent* location. Bed sheets provided, but not towels.
Location of the property couldn’t be faulted. However the cleaning was poor, the dishwasher hadn’t been checked, was full of dirty, smelly water and wasn’t working. Downstairs kitchen & bathroom were very good but the upstairs bathroom and bedrooms need to be completely updated and the windows were unpainted and dirty. The beds were comfortable unlike the sofas downstairs.
The cottage was very cluttered. It is small anyway but the space felt more cramped as there was far too much furniture in there, e.g. a stool behind the bathroom door which meant you couldn't open it properly; another unnecessary stool in the kitchen blocking the freezer, and too many chairs in the sitting room (seating for 7 including 2 dining room chairs). The cottage also didn't seem very clean and some surfaces felt a bit sticky to the touch. The essential places - cooker, bathroom sink and bath, kitchen sink - were clean so that was good. The cupboards were really disorganised and overflo...more
