Guest Reviews


    • “Wonderful holiday in a home from home”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We have just returned from Isallt today. The property was fabulous. It is more spacious than the photos convey with everything you could need to make you feel that you are at home. It was furnished and decorated very tastefully. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped for self catering, ie. pans, knifes, baking trays, crockery etc so there is no need for eating out if you do not want to. It is ideal for children as there are 2 stairgates, a highchair and a travel cot. (We actually brought our own Hauck travel cot which was the same as the one provided. We find it necessary to use our regular cot mattress with it as the travel cot mattress provided is quite thin and hard.) There is an enclosed garden so it is safe for the children to play, with the added bonus of a calf and lamb who live in a shed next to the garden. My son was able to feed the calf one day which he loved. My biggest recommendation for this region is the ice cream shop in Harlech - it is just up the hill from the castle. It is truly amazing ice cream, better than any I've ever had anywhere in the world. We went 3 days in a row, was too embarrassed to go for a 4th time!!”

    • “Fantastic week in Harlech”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed in this wonderful cottage for a week. We had a lovely welcome from the owners on our first day. They also had dogs on the working farm, so my children loved seeing their dogs on a daily basis and looking out onto the fields at the sheep and horses. The cottage had absolutely everything in it you would need, was very clean and decorated beautifully with all the features of the barn giving it a little bit of charm too. We had wonderful weather whilst we were there, which was a bonus. We would walk (about 15mins) or drive (2 mins) down to the beach every day to walk the dog, which he loved. One side of the beach was specifically allocated for dog owners, which was great. We had some lovely days out as well, a fantastic base to stay whilst exploring snowdonia.”

    • “Great holiday cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This was a lovely cottage, in a beautiful location. We were made to feel welcome and the cottage was like home from home with everything in it that you could possibly want. It also had a cosy feel to it. We visited the beach which is dog friendly and only about a 15 minute walk, or two minute drive from the cottage most days. Lots to see and do in the area, we did not get to do everything we wanted to do in the week we were there. Would definately return again and also recommend to family and friends.”

    • “A comfortable, cosy cottage, welcoming family and a great base to explore Snowdonia.”

    Mrs Berry, Newport, October 2015

    • “This was such a wonderful spot for a holiday, with lots of beautiful walks, a lovely little harbour and beach a very short distance away. The excellent standard of the cottage made it a delight to come home to. There was plenty to see and do, people were warm and friendly and the scenery was staggering - made you want to keep stopping for a photograph. We would highly recommend Isallt and we shall certainly go back again.”

    Mrs Pinkham, Alfreton, September 2015

    • “The holiday accommodation was excellent and one of the best cottages we have stayed in. It was very well presented and a generously equipped kitchen added to the experience. All in all a brilliant place to stay.”

    Mrs Rogers, Halifax, August 2015

    • “The cottage was gorgeous, in great location for visiting the area and lovely to be on a farm feeding lambs! Had beautiful views!”

    Mrs Strange, Sheffield, April 2015

    • “A beautiful cottage with everything you could possibly need. A home away from home except with stunning scenery and fantastic hosts. The owners did so much to make us all feel welcome on their farm. My son enjoyed playing farmers helper feeding the cows and sheep and bottle feeding the lambs. Even the weather was kind to us and the sun shone most of the time. I would love to go back to the cottage again and would certainly recommend it to family and friends.”

    Mrs Garner, Heywood, April 2015

    • “The holiday was excellent, we particularly liked the closed in area where the dog could roam around without her wandering off. It was lovely and quiet and the cottage was very well equipped, lovely and warm.”

    Mrs Pearsall, Stoke-on-Trent, September 2014

    • “A very friendly host. Very cosy and comfortable property and everything is provided. A good bed and furniture, after a good day walking you can relax on the sofa or garden furniture and at night there is a good bed to sleep in. Bathroom is well equipped with a good shower over the bath. Very friendly people overall and good views to see.”
