friendly couple good breakfast property in need of re-furbishment
Apartment was superb right on the sea front. High spec interior, underfloor heating made the stay during February very comfortable. Out of season, Barmouth is in shutdown, however this is not to detract from the apartment which was wonderfull.
The staff were friendly and the room myself and my daughter were in was comfortable. The breakfast options were good. No concerns about my stay at all.
Barmouth has lots to offer, even on a rainy day. Plenty to do and see locally and lots of places to visit in the surrounding area's. This lovely cottage is on the High street, so close to all the shops, restaurants, coffee shops and just a short walk to the beach -you couldn't ask for more! The cottage ...
Great apartment ,fully furnished and very tidy and fantastic location . Had a lovely few days there with my family. Thank you to Anna & Paul to welcome us at arrival and for a hamper basket full of treats.
lovely room and pleasant stay. definitely recommend.
The cottage was lovely clean and cosy however the steep hill leading to it isn't just a walk it is very steep indeed.
Barmouth, on the edge of the dramatically beautiful Mawddach Estuary, has one of the most stunning beaches along the coast of Snowdonia, and is a candidate for one of the most beautiful beaches in Britain. Caught between the rugged mountains of the Snowdonia National Park on one side, and the mouth of the river, this long stretch of sand offers the perfect location for family picnics, long contemplative walks or a variety of watersports. Even Wordsworth sung the beaches praises: "With a fine sea view in front, the mountains behind, the glorious estuary running eight miles inland, and Cadair Idris within compass of a day's walk, Barmouth can always hold its own against any rival,’ the poet wrote.
If you’re visiting during peak season, expect bustling crowds, sticks of rock, a summer funfair, amusement arcades and fish and chip shops. This is a classic Welsh beach holiday destination. At other times of year, you’re more likely to run into wetsuit-clad surfers, who flock here when the conditions are right. Birdwatchers are also drawn to the Mawddach estuary in the hope of spotting dippers, pied flycatchers and redstarts. Walkers generally wait until low tide when it is possible to walk as far as Harlech to the north with impressive views over Tremadog Bay.
Other points of interest are the new Lifeboat Visitors' Centre, where visitors can purchase souvenirs and examine the RNLI lifeboat from the viewing gallery. Each June, the Three Peaks yacht race starts here, with sailors racing to Caernarfon in the Menai Straits before leaving the boat and running to the top of Snowdon.
