We love this cottage. Its cosy and comfortable. The views across the fields and only sheep for company. The swallows swooping across the sky. Lounging on a deckchair in the courtyard garden. Its just perfect and I hope well be back!

The front of the cottage had lovely views towards the sea and it is in a very nice quiet area, the only real sound that could be heard was from the sheep occasionally passing in the fields

Superb location with sea views and sunset views, as well as surrounded by a field of sheep. The owner was helpful when we had a query.

An exellent location and accomodation Y Stablau apartment is a fantastic bungalow apartment, close to Barmouth . The property has everything, sea view, garden, conservatory, off road parking, and is very well equipped. A welcome pack was left, and we felt at home straight away. Its location is just far enough away from the main road making for a quiet chill out stay, yet only 5 mins from Barmouth. We will defo be going back. 10 out of 10.
