  • "The owner, having learnt to would have to cut my holiday by a day, contacted me and suggested I could start a day early."

    I was very impressed with her kindness. I hadn’t asked for this. I ended up quickly rearranging and had my full week. The apartment was clean and warm and had fabulous views. It functioned very well for me. I had been slightly wary at having to leave the car in the car park but this worked really well and the parking permit was excellent. The owner had very kindly left milk, eggs, bread, butter and chocolates in the apartment for me but I think maybe in this day and age she should have mentioned it because many people are vegan, including me. I had to throw out some of these which is a shame. If she had mentioned it in the key collection info, I would have said thank you but not to because I don’t eat those things. The only downside was the massively steep hill to the apartment which had no vehicular access. You could barely stand on it. I don’t think it was clear on the website just how steep this was and how difficult it was to pull my case and bags of shopping up to it on the first day. Although I managed, I think it needs explaining on the website to ensure people understand and are prepared. It states that there are steps and therefore it isn’t suitable for people with mobility issues but it doesn’t make it clear or go far enough in my opinion.

    Thank you for your comments. I’m glad you were happy with the apartment and that we kindly let you arrive a day early as you had mentioned you had to cut your holiday short by one day. As for the welcome pack, this is the norm with what welcome packs include, what I can’t understand is why you threw everything away that you didn’t eat, surely it’s worse to be so wasteful in this day and age? Most of the things that are left in the welcome pack can be kept and used again, why throw them out? As for the hill, it is stated very clearly how steep it is, and those views are not achievable from any other height. Property Owner

  • "Very nice, well-organised apartment."

    Close to the centre but quiet because of the location. Good view over beach and sea. Perhaps could have done with clearer instructions on which refuse bins to use for rubbish and recycling. Kitchen equipment was good, although we could have done with another medium to large saucepan.

  • "It was a really comfortable apartment."

    We settled in quickly and soon got to know all that was on offer both in the town and on trips. The lady who looked after the accomodation was wonderfully efficient and I am sure she would have helped further if needed. As it was we had a super holiday. We can't possibly blame you that we came home fatter!

  • "The holiday was fab."

    The cottage was clean and as described - and yes, that is a very steep hill and you need to be reasonably fit to tackle it - but worth it for the amazing view. The apartment was quiet and the terrace at the side was great for sitting out with a cold drink at the end of the day. Lots to do in the area - lovely walking and scenery. The communications with the owners was brilliant. The parking permit made parking both in Barmouth, and in other places in Gwynedd easy too.

    Sits right on the costal walking route. Great spot to see the sunset every night. Will definitely return.

  • "Seaview Apartment certainly lived up to the name - I loved sitting in the window, watching the tides."

    It's a perfect place for one or two. Yes, it's up a pretty steep hill but it's only a 7-8 minute walk from where you park the car so it's over pretty quickly. Dinas Oleu, behind the house is perfect for walking and generally it's easy to explore Barmouth and the surrounding area on foot - don't miss the walk across the bridge for spectacular views. There were a couple of really useful books of walks in the apartment so sitting, watching the sea with a glass of wine and planning the next day's explore was just perfect.

  • "The cottage itself was lovely clean and cosy but the information regarding the incline of the hill needs to be clearer as it is very steep."

    Thank you for taking your time to leave your feedback. On reviewing the property description, I can see that we have already added a description to advise: Apartment is accessed up a steep lane, not suitable for vehicles and with several steps, not suitable for any guests with any mobility issues. If you wish to discuss this further, then please do not hesitate to contact us. Property Owner

  • "Excellent accommodation, with lovely views."

    Welcome pack much appreciated. Very cozy cottage.. Though well reported in the advert the hill up to the apartment from the road was extremely steep especially for any elderly people. This is the sole reason would not return. Would definitely book with Sykes for other accommodation in or just outside Barmouth.

  • "We were not aware how steep the hill was to the flat."

    a nightmare taking our cases up the hill. not really suitable for people aged 70+ who are not used to hills.

  • "Although a lovely apartment, the description wasn’t actually accurate, as it didn’t say how steep the hill actually was."

    And says fully equipped kitchen I wouldn’t call it fully equipped, as there was no freezer to store anything. Tara could also improve on her customer service skills, as she isn't the most approachable of people to deal with.

  • "Ideal location for exploring town and surrounding area."

    The 'very steep' walk up to the cottage may put off elderly folk and anybody with difficulty walking. The bath was very welcome with a constant supply of hot water - bath has a shower attachment so those that prefer showering can sit in the bath and shower (plenty of water pressure). There is a washing machine in the flat although nothing to hang washing on - perhaps speak to owner about use. Overall, we had a lovely, quiet stay in this cosy little cottage.

  • "Accurate description of the limited accessibility - VERY steep, but worth it for the tremendous view."

    This could be enhanced if the hedge was cut a few inches shorter. Only thing missing was a suitable sitting out place, we were there in the heat! Well kept flat with everything we needed including welcoming package of eggs and other edibles. Owners very pleasant and welcoming. Would certainly recommend it, though if you go out you should take everything you need for the day.

  • "Have you ever actually visited this property?"

    If so you would know that it is completely unsuitable for anyone elderly/ with mobility problems. It can only be reached by hauling your luggage up an EXTREMELY steep lane. Wonderful in many respects but your description & photos give nothing like an accurate picture of the difficulty.

  • "A lovely apartment but, although it was mentioned, access to the property was quite difficult for older people."

    Access by car was impossible - because of the steep and narrow road - so transferring luggage was difficult. Car Parking, whilst provided free of charge, was some distance away.

The property

This lovely apartment is elevated high above the town with far-reaching views over the rooftops, Barmouth Beach, Cardigan Bay and stretching as far as the eye can see.

Accessed up a steep lane, not suitable for vehicles and with several steps to the apartment itself, you’ll certainly be fitter leaving than when you arrived, but it’ll be worth it when rewarded with the superb views and welcoming apartment.

This is a perfect base for a seaside holiday for an active outdoor couple but definitely not suitable for guests with challenged mobility.

This delightful apartment, ‘on The Rock’ in Barmouth really ticks all the boxes.

Sensational Sunsets, breathe taking views over the glistening ocean, harbour and the Mawddach estuary, encompassing the Cadair Idris mountain range.

Winding your way up the hill will give you a taste of what’s to come when you gaze back on yourself, simply to enjoy the views on your way up!

The apartment is well-presented and comfortable, a welcoming sitting room immediately draws you in to the large bay window with a window sear, where you can sit and relax, just enjoying the views or read that book you’ve been meaning to finish!

The dining area is comfortable and the modern kitchen is well-equipped, catering for all your needs.

The well-presented bedroom with comfy double bed will ensure a good night’s sleep and the en-suite bathroom, with bath for a relaxing soak, completes this lovely apartment.

There is no designated parking, but guests will have a parking permit for the main car park 400m away at no extra cost to you.

Miles of sweeping sandy beaches and stunning walks are just a stone’s throw from Seaview apartment.

As well as the stunning location, the apartment is only a 5 minutes’ walk to Barmouth town centre with its shops and good pubs/eateries.

This popular area is also ideal for sailing and watersports enthusiasts, as well as providing some of the best mountain biking, with Coed y Brenin, the largest mountain bike trail centre in Wales, being only 12 miles away.

Further afield, explore the stunning architectural gem of Portmeirion, take a historical trip to Harlech Castle with its visitor centre or enjoy the industrial heritage of Blaenau Ffestiniog slate works, steam railway, Zip World Titan, Zip Caverns or Bounce Below, an underground trampoline Surrounded by The Snowdonia National Park, this lovely apartment is ideally situated for that getaway holiday anytime of the year.
