What a location and what a wonderful place to stay. Warm welcome from Kirsty and Gareth. Beautiful room with views across the valley. Breakfast was fantastic. Tried something different everyday and was never disappointed. Nothing was too much trouble and we can't wait to return. Thank you both.

Idyllic stay in South Snowdonia National park
Delightful stay in stunning picturesque surroundings. Jackie and Rob were so welcoming on arrival. Delicious fresh cake as a treat in our room. Jackie even booked a restaurant that evening for us as we were unfamiliar with the area. Perfect for exploring the coast of Aberdovey and Towyn,visiting Dolgoth Falls and Talyllyn lake and a superb stay for walking Cader Idris.
