The cottage was delightful. Very clean and good accommodation. The linen and towels were excellent, and the location ideal. The Owners were friendly, responsive and helpful. We much appreciated the delicious lemon drizzle cake which greeted our arrival.The cottage is in an excellent location to explore this wonderful part of Wales.We would recommend it to any family.

The cottage was very spacious (5 adults and 2 dogs). Lovely option to have the open fire or the electric one running. Got warm quickly and stayed warm. Beautiful lemon drizzle on arrival was a lovely touch. The only improvement would be to have another shower, as the only shower was a rather sad electric one in the ensuite, it did the job but with another (improved) shower it would hands down be a 5 star review.

Cottage in a great setting at the end of a lane - no passing traffic so very quiet. Good view from terrace. A few minutes drove from Black Rock Sands. All appliances worked well esp. dishwasher. Mwave a bit aged, but functions fine. Tv and wi-fi are goodBeds very comfortable. Good shower, plenty of hot water, heating effective. Two other point - loo in non en-suite bathroom needs repeated flushing; and some coat-hooks would be useful.

Stunning setting with both mountain and sea views. Within walking distance to the beach (~half a mile to Black Rock Sands) and a fantastic hike up the 'mountain' at the back. Very warm and personal welcome from the host who left us a delicious cake! Kitchen utensils are quite basic but for one week we managed. Only one shower in the ensuite, but 2 baths. Fairly remote, no pub within walking distance. Porthmadog is a short car journey away and is a lovely and lively town with 3 big supermarkets, petrol stations and plenty of cafes. Portmeirion Cafe at the top of High Street is recommended. Lovely steam train from Porthmadog into the mountains. Surf beach at Porth Neigwl. Lots of castles to visit.
