Very comfortable house - 'home from home'. Enjoyed many walks around Borth y Gest with our spaniel Molly. Can recommend The Moorings restaurant both for Sunday lunch and evening meals. Will miss the view from the lounge.

We came to this house 2 years ago. We had fantastic sunny weather except for 1 cloudy day. I have enjoyed this property and the facilities here. Thanks very much.

Kersti, Thank you for a wonderful home and fabulous views from lounge. Weather was great. Here's to the next time! Look forward to coming again as the area is great and the cafe on the bay is perfect as only 2 minutes away from house, great. P.S. The shower and bed were great.

We have thoroughly enjoyed this part of Wales. Fantastic days on Black Rock Sands inthe sunshine. We loved the Festiniog railway, Portmeirion and for a rainy day a trip down the slate mine at Llechwedd. Borth y Gest lovely for walks and beautiful tranquil views. The Moorings is fantastic. We enjoyed the cottage, it was very comfy.

We've had a wonderfully relaxing few days in your lovely cottage. Afternoon tea at Portmeirion Hotel was a lovely treat and a ride on the new railway line to Beddgelert was jolly good fun.Thank you for being our special friend.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. The kids loved playing with the boat even though it had no bottom! The cottage was well equipped but it would have been nice not to bring our own towels as they are bulky and most holiday cottages of this price range provide them

Stayed May half term. Fab location. Cottage had everything we needed. And thanks for ordering us the lovely weather too ?? Would definitely return - provided it stays reasonably priced.

Great location well equipped cottage

Gill Marshall - 25th May 2018

The cottage had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay in Borth-y-Gest. It has a communal garden and a view to the harbour and the hills beyond. We will book in again if the need arises.
