    • “Lovely cottage, with all your needs catered for!”

    • “My husband, myself and our two teenage children stayed in this lovely cottage which had a great garden and patio. The adjoining paddock with views over the sea and tame sheep was a bonus!. Everything was provided for you to enjoy your stay. The owners were lovely and just allowed you to get on with your holiday. The beds were very comfortable and everywhere was spotlessly clean and very tastefully decorated. OS maps provided were very useful as we did not know the area and made us find a fantastic picnic spot high above Llanbedr. The next road along in the direction of Barmouth called Fford Gors has a lovely wood and river walk ending in a riverside pub!. The local beach was amazing and the nearest town of Barmouth was just a five minute drive away. Mount Snowdon was about an hour and ten minutes drive away and well worth a visit, (although would not recommend walking to the summit on a very wet day, as we found out the hard way!). Overall a fantastic cottage and location. North Wales is a beautiful part of the world.”

    • “The annexe while obviously being an annexe to the main house, is a nice sized property in its own right. Although it is situated on a main road, we did not notice the traffic once in the garden as it was shielded by trees and was very private and pretty to look at. The bed was very comfortable and all the equipment was good quality, including a decent washing machine. The fireplace was a great feature but as it was a very hot week, we did not need to use the log burner. Our dogs loved the cottage and quickly felt at home. They loved walking and going to the beach which is one of the best beaches we have been on, absolutely beautiful. The owners were very nice but left us to enjoy the cottage in peace. We would definitely recommend this one and we have stayed in two or three every year for nearly thirty years. We usually feel ready to go home towards the end of a holiday but we could have stayed here much longer because of the relaxing atmosphere.”

    • “A lovely base for a holiday in North Wales. Easy to get to main attractions. Owners friendly and helpful and cottage provides everything you could need. Highly recommended. The spotty dog was lovely too.”

    • “The owners are very friendly and helpful and the accommodation first class. The annexe is at the rear of the owners cottage with its own entrance and patio. If you are taking a dog there are steps leading from the patio to a paddock where they can be exercised. The location is great with local beaches and situated between Barmouth and Harlech within easy reach or many attractions i.e Portmerion and Betws-y-coed. It is an ideal place to stay for this area of Wales and we hope to return next year.”

    • “there were no pictures on the website when we booked this so we were a little apprehensive but we couldn't have been happier when we arrived, the welcome was warm and some lovely personal touches were waiting when we entered. the annex is well equip t the finish and attention to detail throughout was impressive, having the wood burner in october was lovely it really gives that cosy feel. if there was something we had to pick at it would be the shower, it's definitely not a power shower but there is a bath and it's not something that would stop me recommending the annex. we used the cottage as a base to take our (large) dog out walking and there are some beautiful walks in this area, having a walk along the beach in the morning can't be beat! there is a couple of pubs within walking distance (5-10 min) & a lovely Italian restaurant on the way. having looked at a lot of cottages on the web i think this is great value for money.”

    • “We love the Annex! Lovely location, friendly and helpful owners. Lovely and clean for the days when the weather doesn't cooperate and you spend more time indoors. Great for kids.”

    Mrs Rapley, Loughborough, October 2015

    • “We love The Annex, although it is attached to the main house it feels separate. We have stayed here several times before and it never fails to please. It is also ideal for walking.”

    Mrs Rose, Milton Keynes, October 2015

    • “The Annexe is well situated with good views over the bay. A warm reception from the owners on our arrival made us feel at home and our two Westies were also made welcome.”

    Mr Adamson, Lytham St. Annes, September 2015

    • “The cottage was great! It was situated close to a gorgeous beach and was spotlessly clean. You were provided with everything you needed and more! It was a bonus to have the maps provided too as it meant we found local points of interest we perhaps may not have found otherwise. The patio and garden were lovely too.”

    Mrs Severn, Nottingham, July 2015

    • “The cottage was immaculate, really comfortable and had everything you needed. The garden was lovely and the option of going into the paddock was brilliant for our golden retriever dog. We slept soundly every night, the beds were really comfortable and it was very peaceful. The owners were warm and welcoming, showed us around and told us about the local area. The cottage is in a perfect location to explore Barmouth, Harlech and Porthmadog. There is also a beach which is around a ten minute drive away which is brilliant for walking and also great for dogs. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 'The Annexe' and would recommend to anyone.”

    Mrs Nicklin, Brierley Hill, June 2015

    • “The cottage was in a great location close to the beach and lots of lovely walks. The garden was ideal for the dog and the patio area was lovely too. The cottage was modern but homely, with every facility you could possibly need. The owners were very friendly and welcoming.”

    Miss Buckley, Grimsby, May 2015

    • “We were more than pleased with The Annexe and would like to thank the owner for the opportunity of staying in his home.”

    Mrs Hughes, Cardiff, May 2015

    • “The ambiance at The Annexe is superb and the owner is supportive but never intrusive.The weather was wonderful, the sea never came in and the walks just kept getting better the more I explored.”

    Ms Kraus, Banbury, April 2015

    • “In an ideal location, and perfect for the dogs. The owners and locals were very welcoming. The cottage was perfect in every way.”

    Mr Bailey, Stoke-on-Trent, April 2015

    • “The Annexe is in a good position in a lovely village, the owners were always on hand and happy to help, giving lots of tips on areas to visit within the area. The Annexe offered us everything we needed for our break, it was well equipped and clean. Would definitely stay there again if visiting that area of Wales.”

    Mr Higgin, Colne, December 2014

    • “The property was warm, cosy and welcoming. The property is very dog friendly, we have two Labradors who had a great time with lots of space for them to run in the owners grounds. Although The Annexe is attached to the owners property, we felt we had privacy and space.”

    Mr Ladd, Whitchurch, October 2014

    • “We, as a family, came to stay at the 'Annexe' last year & had to make a return visit. The owners were wonderful & welcoming. Top marks to 'The Annexe'.”

About the location


Harlech 5 miles; Barmouth 5 miles.

The pleasant village of Dyffryn Ardudwy quietly nestles between The Rhinogs, part of the Snowdonia Mountains, and the stunning golden beaches of the North Wales coastline. Boasting its own mild climate due to its unusual positioning, and an exciting array of wildlife and birds including soaring buzzards, this charming village provides good local shops and a good pub. The small town of Harlech is just 4 miles away, dominated by its majestic 13th century castle which is a World Heritage Site, and the most impressive of all the castles built in North Wales by Edward I. Popular with golfers due to its famous Royal St. David's course, Harlech also boasts an excellent variety of amenities including some good quality restaurants. Nearby Barmouth offers an amazing Panorama Walk with breathtaking views and also a harbour from which you can enjoy a ferry to Fairbourne for a ride on the miniature railway or a boat trip out to sea to try mackerel fishing. With the delights of Snowdonia National Park and beautiful Cardigan Bay to discover, this is a fantastic holiday location at any time of the year.
