  • "Lovely place and beautiful views."

    Nice and friendly hosts who thought about everything what you can need during your stay. Highly recommended.

  • "Very nice property situated in a very scenic location."

    The views are outstanding, especially if the weather is fine. A great place for the family with some lovely scenic walks close by. The only downside is no WIFI at the property.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Pentref; the lodge is spacious, homely and offers breathtaking views in a peaceful setting."

    There were 7 of us staying and there was plenty of space for all of us. We enjoyed a fabulous walk down to Aberdovey beach; however, be prepared for a challenging (but enjoyable) walk back up to the chalet park! The information guide in the lodge advised that there was a key within the master lock that would lock the conservatory door, however, we couldn't find this (only another front door key). This wasn't too much of a problem but we probably would have preferred to have been able to lock the conservatory too - however, I'm sure Sarah & John would have provided the key had we asked for it. Overall a superb stay and we are looking forward to returning to Pentref soon.

  • "Can't fault this place, exceeded all expectations!"

    ! mind blowing views and Aberdyfi is the most amazing place...we have totally fallen in love with the locals and staying where we did was just icing on a magnificent cake. The Chalet had everything and more than you could ever need, bed linen, towels etc were beautiful. but what was best that you could relax and chill, even the dog loved it

  • "We were rather expecting a walk down to the sea from the chalet not, as we were informed, a hike down the road and a track we never found!"

    A basin in the shower room would have helped. Overall, the views and the ambience were good, a pleasant week spent.

  • "Hi. Firstly, we want to say that we found Sarah to be helpful and caring in her communications."

    Thank you. We arrived at the property after a long drive and we blown away by the view from the terrace. Really spectacular. Just in brief though, there were a few things that we wanted to raise. We felt there could've been more of a welcome at the cottage. A small welcome note or at least instructions on where to find local information. The local information "folder" was tucked away on a shelf which was concealed by the sofa. We had to hunt for it. And in it, well, not much information. Not up to date anyway. There was a draw stuffed full of every flyer in existence from the local area, but that was a bit daunting so we left it. So aside from a lovely (brief) conversation with Sarah, as we had taken a wrong turn on arrival, we we relived to arrive but it all felt a bit "cold" and unwelcoming in the cabin. Practical things. There were dirty towels left of the back of one of the bedroom doors and a half drunk bottle of mineral water left on the top bunk (which was not made up with fresh linen - or any linen). In these paranoid COVID times, this isn't fantastic. So we were missing one set of bed linen. When you pay for an entire cabin, even if it sleeps 8 and there are only 7 of you, you should be given the option to use all of the beds. My daughter was feeling poorly on the first night, so I opted to sleep in the bunk room with her, which meant taking the linen off a twin bed and making up the top bunk myself. The cold tap in the bath didn't work but this was resolved the next morning by John, so thank you. We are coffee drinkers and were sad to find no way of brewing a coffee on our first morning. We used the teapot and a tea strainer in the end. Also in the kitchen, no scissors, no spare tea towels (aside from the one that was there) that we could find and no slice/spatular for the frying pan (only bar b q ones which were huge). Paying over £2000 for the week, I think basic kitchen items should be included. Now, we didn't watch much of it, but with no Wifi, our daughter watched a little TV. Someone before us had obviously been a little overzealous with the volume control, as the speaker is shot. The sound is scratchy and muffled. The batteries in the remote were also on the blink which was a bit of an annoyance. Again, something you'd think wouldn't be an issue in a venue with this price tag. The walk down to the beach is about 15/20 mins, but the walk back up is a schlep (up very steep hills), it took me (on my own) more like half an hour or so, so be warned with little ones. If you're going to the beach every day, you'd really need to use the car if you've got young children. It was further than we'd thought. If you're a dog owner, the only place they can run off the lead is the beach. You are surrounded by sheep. So this is something to bear in mind. This list seems pernickety, but it's only because we are listing everything we can think of to try to be helpful to others who may want to book. Without question this property delivers on an absolutely fantastic view and it's very spacious inside. It's the little things we felt were lacking. I think when you own a place like this, you perhaps rely on customers being so blown away by the view, that you perhaps feel the finer points don't matter. But we felt they did matter. And we missed them. Thanks though, the view is indeed breath taking.

  • "We had a lovely family stay."

    The views from the decking are simply breathtaking. There was more than enough space for us and the rooms were comfortable and clean. We felt completely private on our decking as well which was really nice. The only thing that would have been a bit nicer would have been a slightly bigger fridge for more space for bbq food as well as those essential chilled drinks. We had friendly texts from the owners and although we didnt need to contact them they made it clear they were available.

    Location is perfect and the property is tardis like, lots of space for a family of five plus dog. We had everything we needed including space to just breathe. Spotlessly clean, well maintained and with attentive, friendly owners. We can’t wait to stay again, just looking for a slot in the diary!

  • "The accommodation at Pentref was spacious, well equipped, very comfortable and the view from the balcony was spectacular."

    The only drawback for us was that the description did not prepare us for the scarily steep, single track in some places, road up from .Aberdovey which the older, less mobile members of the party could not even attempt to walk.

  • "My family and I enjoyed a week during August in this beautiful place."

    The cottage is easily in the most spectacular location I have ever stayed in. The views from all the windows are stunning and we did not want venture far during our week... although the countrside around offers many more delights. The cottage is clean, well-maintained and cosy, a real joy to spend precious family time in. It has a lovely warm and welcoming feel and is surprisingly spacious... we were a party of eight adults with three small dogs and we never felt cramped. The beds and furniture are comfortable and the kitchen very well equipped. The huge balcony has a range of outdoor furniture to suit all and a bbq for wonderful evenings watching the tide change in the estuary and the sun set while sharing food and wine into the darkness of night, and enjoying the amazing night sky and pretty lights across the bay. I cannot wait to return.

    Fantastic location for walkers and outward bound activities. The lodge is very secluded even though on a lodge park. The views are definitely incredible, the decking area is a fantastic place to sit and enjoy them. As there is no light pollution and we were lucky with clear skies, the night skies were incredible.

  • "The view and location were outstanding, slightly hidden away from the rest of the site, which gave great privacy."

    No neighbours to overlook. The site and lodge was very clean and tidy. The only small issue was that there was only one 'bathroom' with a sink. The 2nd shower room only had a WC and Shower. Not an issue as there was only 3 of us. The beds were comfortable and clean.
