  • "Had a lovely week at Arran House and the facilities were exactly as stated."

    Last flight of stairs were a bit of a challenge but then we knew that so it's not a complaint

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, we would welcome you back to Arran House anytime! All the best, Lucy Property Owner

  • "A wonderful cottage (despite the steep stairs) in a perfect location."

    Really enjoyed my stay. The only thing I'd add is that the main bedroom really needs blackout blinds or blackout curtains. It's so bright in the room at night with a street light right outside the window.

    Thank you for your feedback, we will take on your points for the next season. We hope you had a great stay and would love to welcome you back to Arran house in the future. All the best! Property Owner

  • "Absolutely lovely property."

    Loved the layout with the big lounge across the top floor from which the views from the picture window are amazing. Kids rooms above the master bedroom which gave a sense of safety. The house was like a home from home, clean, comfortable and inviting with everything you need for a home from home stay. We took our little dog and even though there is no outside space, just open the front door and you have a garden and a beach across the road, Barmouth Bay is in your doorstep! Fabulous location and highly recommended.

    Thank you for your lovely review, we’re so glad you enjoyed your stay & would welcome you back anytime! Property Owner

  • "A beautiful comfortable home tastefully decorated with an excellent view from every room especially the top floor living room which is well worth the 3 flights of stairs climb."

    Everything you need for a perfect family holiday which is close to everything the town has to offer. Communication with the owner was great she’s happy to help and goes over and above to make sure you have a nice time. Thank you we will be back to beautiful Barmouth xxx

    Best location and best views! A lot of stairs to climb but we’ll worth it. Everything you need. The best night’s sleep ever! Definitely going back

  • "Fantastic location, the view from the living room is crazy good, the kitchen had everything you need, and the shower was strong."

    The only thing would be the stairs, if you have any mobility issues it would be a problem. Once you climb the stairs the reward of the views is worth it though.

    Thank you for your lovely review - you’d be welcome back to Arran house anytime! We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you in the future. All the best! Property Owner

  • "Had a comfortable stay with gorgeous views and a perfect location."

    Kitchen was really well equipped and was great to include an iron and hairdryer. I took my own as this wasn’t mentioned. Dog bed was a nice touch but quite smelly so I put it through a wash before using. Bathroom was great and a lovely shower and soft towels. Lounge was really spacious and stunning views and good wi fi throughout. Unfortunately we got a parking fine despite displaying the permit when on main car park in Dollgellau so please be warned of this. Bedrooms were light and spacious although shutters did let in too much light from outside so would be better with blackout curtains or blinds? There was also lots of noise from the Last Inn on Friday and Saturday nights. A little shelf or cupboard next to beds would be helpful as any items had to go on the floor as there was no where to put them. Key safe for key is quite stiff to open. Overall a great stay with good facilities, ideal if you don’t really want to drive anywhere and don’t mind lots of stairs as everything is within a few mins walk. Would recommend.

    Thank you for the review, we’re glad you enjoyed your stay. I know I spoke with you during your stay with regards to the parking situation and key safe - thank you for raising. It’s important to remind all guests to look at the information sheet for specific car park details before parking and displaying the permit. Great point about the main bedroom - we’ll invest in some small bedside tables to help with that, thank you. We would welcome you back to Arran House anytime, so hopefully we’ll see you again in the future! All the best! Property Owner

  • "Brilliant location and excellent correspondence with owners."

    Amazing views from living area watching the boats and people watching. Train station and ferry within a 5 minute walk if you wish to explore further afield and 3 supermarkets near train station for any forgotten items. Having a knee problem I did find the stairs a little hard.

  • "This is a wonderfully located property with the most amazing views and brilliant access to the town."

    Very clean and owner contacted us on arrival to check in with us. We would absolutely stay here again but as previous review said I feel some extra facilities would definitely improve stay. The first floor bedroom is very light at night and although some people may like this maybe some blackout blinds or curtains would help people who prefer it darker to sleep. The lounge area may also benefit from more seating in the unused space behind the settee. There was information about a dishwasher but we were not able to find. Generally perhaps a bit more information on leaving eg where does recycling go and a few more facilities in kitchen eg bread bin, bin liners ect. Had a lovely stay we wish this to constructive as we would definitely stay again. Thanks

    Thank you very much for your constructive feedback, we will absolutely be making some additions in terms of furniture when we’re next up there, this is our first year having spent some time redoing the property with it being up and running so we will make improvements as we go - thank you for the suggestions. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay & would very much welcome you back to Arran House. Unfortunately there hasn’t ever been a dishwasher at the property so I’ll check with the housekeeping team about any info that seems to be there about a dishwasher to find out where that’s come from as this wasn’t in the manuals we wrote at the start of the season. Thank you again for your feedback and we’re glad you enjoyed your stay! Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the heart of the popular seaside town of Barmouth rests this striking four-storey holiday home, Arran House overlooking the Harbour.

Boasting far-reaching views across the stunning coastline of North Wales, Arran House is idyllically positioned for a seaside staycation for both families and friends alike.

Step over the threshold and enter directly into the charming open-plan kitchen/diner, traditionally decorated with exposed stonework throughout, offering a warm and welcoming atmosphere to enjoy your staycation.

Be charmed by the well equipped kitchen tucked away at the rear of the sociable space, home to a range of modern amenities, and gather together at the dining table to indulge in some hearty treats following an action packed day.

Settle down for the evening and climb the steep stairs to the third-floor where you'll find a snug sitting room, framing captivating far-reaching views across the scenic coastline to the mountains beyond through the towering picture window; put your feet up and unwind with a glass of wine as you catch up on your favourite show on the television.

When sleep calls, jump in the shower to rinse off your sandy toes before retiring for the evening to either of the three bedrooms, with the choice between a sumptuous double, a twin or a small toddler bed.

A short walk from your doorstep will bring you to the popular Barmouth Beach, famed as one of the most picturesque resorts on the Welsh coast; a lovely spot to dip your toes in the refreshing waters of the bay as you bask in the sun and sand.

Board a charter and soak in the scenic sights of the coast, test your luck at the beachfront arcade, or indulge in a portion of fish and chips at the award winning Mermaid, and a scenic stroll as you watch the world go by at Barmouth Harbour.

Catch the train north to the nearby seaside resort of Harlech, home to the medieval fortress of Harlech Castle, the Championship 18-hole links course of Royal St. David's Golf Club and Harlech Beach, backed by towering sand dunes, promising a fun-filled day out for all of the family.

No trip to North Wales would be complete without an adventure to Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, where you can explore the varying terrains and landscape boasting a plethora of walking, cycling and hiking trails through unspoilt greenery, striking mountains and steep river gorges; lace up your boots and hike to the summit of Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), the tallest mountain in Wales.

Explore the coast and country of North Wales with a stay at Arran House.
