Really comfortable cottage with fabulous views over the bay.
Mrs Keay, Glasgow, July 2012
First class property with a great deal of thought given to the furnishings and decor. Good base for exploring North Wales and Snowdonia. We would certainly recommend Gwel-y-Don.
Mrs Scott, Carnforth, October 2011
The property was a good base and had fantastic views. It was comfortable, spacious, well equipped and well decorated, this added to the enjoyment of the holiday.
Mrs Stafford, Washington, September 2011
The property is wonderfully situated and beautifully furnished. It felt like a home away from home. The gift of wine and biscuits were an unexpected touch which made us feel immediately welcome.
