Marvellous views from the house. Comfy beds and nice kitchen. Bathrooms looking a bit tired. Would have been useful to leave a roll of toilet paper in the bathrooms. No toilet paper at all comes across as mean and un-welcoming. Some of the paths, handrails and steps outside are a bit dodgy and made access tricky for the senior member of our party.

Absolutely outstanding location! Very well appointed house. Views are beyond compare in the UK. Unbelievable sunsets and mountains on the horizon from a lofty balcony.Our family group included three generations from 18 months to mid sixties. Ideal for simply enjoying the peace and the surroundings. Rather a challenging location for very young children and perhaps older generations as there are steep steps down to the house and from the house down into the sloping garden.Not the place to come if you hope to spend time on the long picturesque Harlech Beach. There is only one official access to the beach which is a ten minute drive away plus a quarter of an hour walk through sand dunes. Frustrating when you can see it so clearly from the balcony.We received superb support from the property owner who does not live in the area. Our holiday was during a heatwave with daily temperatures in the high twenties, even 30 degrees inside at night! The owner agreed to us buying cooling fans for the property and reimbursed us willingly.Be aware that most of the property photos appear to have been taken several years ago and there are some significant differences, not least the amount of growth on the trees and bushes around the house and garden.We would highly recommend the property for a large family group provided you carefully consider the points above and how relevant they are to the age and physical capabilities of your group.

The house is very spacious and well-equipped; it was beautifully clean when we arrived. I liked having a utility room to dry things in as well as the outdoor washing line; the large porch to drop muddy boots in was useful too. We were lucky with the weather, so were able to take advantage of the large table outside for a couple of our meals, as well as the conservatory and dining room. The views are stunning, even better than I anticipated from the photos on the website, and it's a nice quiet location a few minutes out of the town centre. (The only thing to note is that it's up a very steep hill!) I contacted the owner a few times for information and advice and she was extremely helpful. I would love to visit here again.

A copy of the painting hangs in the chapel. The original hangs in the Lady Lever Art Gallery, Liverpool.
