We would definitely recommend this cottage for large families. The rooms were very luxurious, the ensuite bathrooms and family bathrooms were as good as any hotel. The beach was amazing and the swimming pool nearby was enjoyed by our young children and a good addition to the facilities. We will definitely rent this cottage again.
We had a wonderfull time in this house. A part of our holiday we stayed with our 3 teenagers. 1 week another family of five(friends) stayed with us. The house is comfortable, has very nice views (sea and mountains) The housekeeper is friendly and is helpfull if anything is not working. The walks on the beach-Shell Island, from the house to the hills and the Snowdon region will stay in our remembrance.
This was our first holiday together as grown up siblings and the house enabled us to have a wonderful time whilst the luxury of escaping to our own space if we needed it. The house is beautiful and has been renovated to a very high standard with amazing bathrooms, dÃ©cor and a homely feel. It was brilliant that fuel and heating was included, although we had a lovely sunny week in March. The family can't wait to go back again!
The house is beautifully and lovingly done up. All the rooms have their own distinct charm, are very generous with space and ammenities. The views are fabulous, especially from the top floors. The kitchen is big enough to cook for a large group, but too many people in there at once can cramp it up a little bit. Best let the cook(s) do their work and stay out of the way. The dishwasher* played up a bit while we were there, but we managed and it was looked into very quickly by the site management people (* = the only reason I am giving a "good" instead of a "great" for kitchen & utensils). Having both a washer and dryer in the house (also ironing board and iron) are a tremendous help for people staying a week or longer, one can keep the amount of packed clothes down to a minimum. All our contacts with site management/owners and the stafff who serviced the place were friendly and nice. Although situated right next to the train line into Barmouth, one rarely notices the trains unless outside, and even then it is no bother. We used the house to host an evening wedding party and it was perfect! We didn't want to leave! And we will most definitely be back again in the future with extended family. We can most definitely recommend both this house as well as the Barn conversions just 50 meters down the road! And a 10 minute walk or so and you are on the beach!
We were very satisfied with the whole booking process it all went very smoothly. All of our family loved the house it was very tastefully decorated, lots of room for all of us to spread out. The bedrooms were fabulous and all of the bathrooms and en-suites were clean and spacious. The garden was excellent well kept and maintained with the added bonus of the railway at the back which delighted my grandson! The house was in a fabulous location with mountain and sea views and the fabulous beach a very short walk away. The only downside was the fact that the dishwasher was out of action for 4 of our 7 days and with 11 of us, 3lots of washing up a day was an awful lot of time spent at the sink, which is not how we planned to spend our holiday and looking through the visitors comments book it had been not working properly for sometime.
A family of 5 adults and 5 children stayed at the end of October into November. We found the accommodation to be furnished to very high standards. The facilities were of excellent quality. The kitchen was fully stocked with useful utensils and I was even able to bake two cakes. However I would suggest that you remove the metal utensils and provide plastic utensils if you would prefer metal ones not to be used on that fabulous large stove or griddle. The sea views from the house is amazing in some rooms. The washing machine and dryer being available was also a bonus. The pool being about 2 minutes drive away isn't really an issue. On arrival at the swimming complex you are provided with a fob so that you can access the pool. We had the entire pool to ourselves on our many visits to the pool. The beach is also a 7 minute walk or a 1 minute drive down a lane. It is a clean and stunning sand beach. My children caught crabs and fish. The thoughtful owners of the property even provided buckets, spades and nets. Parking was great and you have your own gated private driveway to the house. I would definetly visit again.
