    Had to call for advice. The information the parking permits which we were given was incorrect. Has to call for advice. The cottage had not been cleaned and there were hairs in the bath and bed linen. Had to call and wait for cleaners to come at 1900 hrs. The cleaners did not have any bed linen with them so had to use linen of the spare bed and that was then left in made for the duration of the holiday. The sky light window was very dirty/marked which was unsightly and did not allow views of the sky! There was limited information on how to work cooker. And instruction booklet would have been useful. The TV had very poor reception and could not be used on many attempts. Despite all these issues we did have a good holiday and when we did call the company our issues were dealt with promptly and we are awaiting further correspondence re compensation.

The cottage

This cosy holiday cottage is situated in the heart of the popular seaside town of Harlech.

It is known locally as ‘The Doll's House’ due to it's small but perfectly formed size.

It has been recently renovated to maximise the light and space in this lovely cottage with it's upside down layout. There is an open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen.

The sitting room has a large comfortable L shaped sofa with an open fire, and TV with built-in DVD player.

The small dining table and benches have views over the rooftops to the sea.

The kitchen has an electric oven with induction hob, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave and toaster. The bathroom is located on the living space floor with a bath and shower over, loo and wash hand basin.

The two bedrooms are both located on the lower ground floor, which is accessed by a steep staircase with alternating treads known as "paddle and oar".

There is one small double room with beautiful fabrics, and the second double has a single bunk above.

There is a small narrow gravelled area to the front of the house which is large enough to sit with your coffee and watch the world go by.

You will usually find road parking outside the cottage but there is parking in the nearby car park for which the owner has provided a pass. Harlech has an assortment of small shops, cafes, restaurants, a beach and impressive castle.

It is a great location to explore the beautiful Snowdonia National Park which offers the best of sea, sand, woodlands, waterfalls, lakes and mountains.
