Massively impressed. Gorgeous location we wanted for nothing from a full stock of wood to the fabulous welcome provisions. Lou was very welcoming and even admired our dog so she gets my vote!!! Have to say the property was meticulously clean (no evidence it was a dog friendly rental so dont be put off if your dont have canine tendencies!)

We had a brilliant holiday as the house and location were perfect for our family of 14 with ages from 1 to 70. Plenty of space for us to eat and socialise together but also for a few quieter moments when needed. No queues for the 4 bathrooms and plenty of space in the 6 bedrooms. The views across the estuary were superb and being able to fish and cRead moreatch crabs off the garden wall kept the children happy for ours. The surrounding wooded hills were beautiful with plenty to do in the area. Hide

Fantastic house. Well presented with large communal dining and living areas. We were a large family group who all loved the house. The bedrooms were brilliant and beds comfortable. We were there during October half term and the house was warm and cosy at all times.

The house is a stunning Edwardian building on the outside with the most fabulous view you can imagine. The Mawddach Estuary and its tides change daily, it's the best place to sit and ponder! We had many drinks watching the sun set ..... We would highly recommend this property to larger groups. We were a party of 12, 9 adults and 3 children under 9.Read more The children loved the triple bunks. we had a wonderful holiday, I was celebrating my 70th with my husband and children/grandchildren and a dog!!

The property is in stunning surroundings but if not a strong walker you definitely need transport as a good 20min walk in either direction for supplies. We had a brilliant time and Barmouth beach is amazing.
