  • "Absolutely fantastic week at Gorwel Deg."

    Arrived to homemade scones and prosecco which we ate on the balcony looking at the incredible view. It felt cosy and welcoming and had everything needed for a weeks stay with pots, pans, and towels! Perfect location to hike around Snowdonia, which is topped off with a relaxing evening in the hot tub. Will definitely visit again if we are up in the area, thank you.

    It is well equipped and was a home from home. The complimentary goodies were a very welcome touch. The hosts were extremely helpful with regards to information. We made use of the hot tub on the decking, which was much appreciated after a day out walking!

    Every detail had been thought of and it is exceptionally clean throughout. Our whole group were very happy with the stay, loved every minute and the girls particularly loved the lay out and of course the hot tub. The amazing welcome basket of goodies and home baked scones was such a lovely added bonus and very much enjoyed by all. Overall a beautiful base to explore all North Wales and Snowdonia has to offer. Thanks to the lovely owners

  • "A highly presentable, functional and located property for an enjoyable stay in this beautiful area."

    A lovely welcome with homemade scones which were promptly consumed, yum yum. Well thought itinerary of items in the house. Interesting layout with enough 'own space' if needed. It was fun to go back down memory lane with a classic games compendium and of course, the hot tub was an enjoyable way to end the day. Wifi connection was strong throughout the house and allowed one of us to attend online work meetings. The owners were easy to contact by text, friendly, helpful and made you feel at ease. I could not fault this stay but we are easy to please. A home away from home. Well done Delyth and Arwel.

  • "Myself and my boyfriend had booked to stay at this beautiful property for a long weekend birthday celebration as it was the perfect location to explore the surrounding areas."

    This house boasts its beautiful views of Snowdonia as well as being a 5 minute drive from Zipworld which we had pre-booked. The cleanliness and attention to detail was exceptional and made this property feel luxurious with an outside jacuzzi being a very welcomed addition after a long day of hiking. Every need had been catered for and both Arwel and Delyth were friendly, attentive hosts which made our stay that much more enjoyable. We cannot wait to return and we will be thoroughly recommending to all. Thank you both to Arwel and Delyth again for such a fantastic stay - we didn’t want to leave!

  • "I don’t think I’ve ever stayed anywhere so clean- and I’ve stayed in some very expensive hotels!"

    It was well decorated, cosy and extremely well equipped. So much thought has gone into this holiday home. The cottage is well situated for exploring the mountains and beaches of north wales and there’s lots to do for all ages. The mountain views are breathtaking and having a hot tub, decked outdoor dining area and conservatory to enjoy them is a lovely touch. The owners were really welcoming and helpful. We couldn’t ask for more, and had a lovely holiday. We will certainly be back to climb snowdon and enjoy the views again!

  • "Absolutely fabulous stay!"

    I highly recommend. The owners are the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they ensured we had everything we could possibly need! The property is cleaned to a very high standard and the care and attention, particularly to Covid regulations, is amazing. A 5 minute walk from the property allows you to join on the Welsh Slate Trail, it’s 89 miles long but you just turn round when your ready. This includes breathtaking views! There is a bus down the road (owners kindly provided times in the welcome book), and there are many wonderful walks in nearby Anglesey! The hot tub is a perfect addition, no matter what the weather is (yes we even enjoyed it in the rain!) and is throughly enjoyable. The picturesque hills in the background makes it so special!! The property also includes a washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher! These are great additions which helped with washing dishes and ensured we could get all of our washing done rather than returning home with a suitcase full! The decor in the property is lovely! A fabulous taste and very modern. There are so many utensils in the kitchen, and it’s clear that the kitchen accessories/toilet accessories are a top quality good brand! The WiFi was fabulous, never once lost connection and a fantastic speed. The TV was great, and access to streaming services included! There are so many personal touches which the owners have done, a little gifts left for us. This shows the clear compassion that the owners have, showing this is not just a business to them. The little welcome gifts (including homemade cake!), the dishwasher & washing machine tablets, and the little chocolates which were left just show how much genuine care, time and passion that they put into the place. I would highly recommend this stay, and wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again. The previous reviews and pictures persuaded us to stay here, and I wanted to further support these and ensure prospecting holidaymakers that you won’t regret this decision! Thank you so much Arwel and Delyth for having us, you should be so proud of the fabulous holiday home you have made! Diolch ♥️

    Very good location for walking & visiting, and the house is so nice that a couple of rainy days were welcome so that we could enjoy just being indoors. We'd definitely go again.

  • "Immaculate, really well equipped and comfortable house with fantastic views."

    Pictures don't do it justice! Owners on hand and very responsive but not at all intrusive. Location fabulous for short pretty and interesting walks, huge mountain hikes with stunning views of Snowdonia, Anglesey and the coast, an easy bike ride down to the north coast and a harder ride up the beautiful Ogwen valley to Capel Curig. Amazing dark night skies in the valley too on a clear night. Bethesda had everything we needed.

  • "On first glance externally this wasn't the prettiest of properties, however we were so glad we stayed here, the property inside was the cleanest we have ever stayed in and everything from kitchen equipment to bed clothes was of the highest quality."

    The welcome pack was also one of the best we have experienced with homemade scones and very thoughtful essentials. The elevated views are amazing which made the raised decking an absolute plus for this property. The owners were very attentive but never over communicated, would definitely recommend.

  • "Had no control of central heating as some early mornings and evenings were chilly."

    Thanks for your wonderful and generous feedback in our cottage visitor book. Such a shame that you didn't mention the heating when we spoke during the week as we could have rectified the problem straight away. We have adjusted the heating and all the following guests have been extremely happy. Best wishes and thanks again Property Owner

  • "Gorwel Deg was simply perfect."

    Not the prettiest house from the outside, but inside it is so wonderfully appointed, with everything thought of. The tray of goodies on arrival, including handmade scones and prosecco, was so wonderful, and gratefully recieved after a long drive. The owners live next door and are very unobtrusive but on hand to help if needed. The location is perfect for exploring the beaches of the North coast and Angellsey, along with the rivers, mountains and waterfalls of Snowdonia National Park. Gorgeous views from the rear veranda; perfect for sundowners on a summer's evening. Would book again if we visit the area again.
