  • "We had an amazing time at this beautiful house, will definitely book to go back."

    I would recommend to take some food with you as didn’t find much in regards to supermarkets. We went to climb snowdon which is about 1.hr 10 minutes drive north. But what a lovely homely house to return too. Very steep hill up, so if you have a disability would need help taking your stuff up To the house from car. There was 9 off us and plenty of room in the house. Defiantly a house to escape a hectic life and relax. Carnt wait to rebook and go back

  • "The property feels as if you are living in a proper welcoming home."

    There is a wonderful selection of books and games for all ages, and interesting pictures. The pool, although unheated was great for the enthusiastic swimmer and the local beach at Fairbourne worth the effort of clambering down the pebble defences for the stunning views and good swimming. The local shop there sells basics and Dolgellau has proper butcher and 2 supermarkets. The extensive grounds are wonderful to explore. The owners are really helpful if you have any problems. Snowdonia is a stunning area to visit abd explore.

  • "The house was lovely, exactly what we needed."

    Plenty of space for 10 plus a very active dog. The pool is a nice addition and provides lovely evenings and days. The house is situated out the way but with easy access to walks and local towns only a short walk away.

  • "Amazing location and a very comfortable house."

    A real home from home. Plenty of room to spread out or cosy up in front of the log fire. The swimming pool area was lovely and we spent our afternoons around the pool with a barbecue. Why not heat the pool and charge if required ? That would make the experience 5star and better for some family members who dislike Very cold ! water. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

  • "Wonderful cottage & facilities."

    We had a perfect family Christmas at Afon Morfa. We encountered a minor problem. I contacted the owner who resolved the issue within 1 hour. Thoroughly recommend staying there & will consider returning, probably as a summer holiday to enjoy the wonderful sandy beaches nearby.

  • "The garden is lovely but unfortunately the view (which would have been amazing) is now obscured by rather a lot of large trees."

    Some serious pruning would help.

  • "The cottage was just as described, but more homely, the steep gardens were very steep, would not recommend to anyone with children under 6, luckily none of our were, and it is noted."

    The seclusion of the property was lovely, we really enjoyed the hill walk to the stunning views, fabulous holiday.

  • "Apart from a broken cafetiere everything was great."

    Would only recommend for people who are fairly able bodied as there are lots of steep steps in the grounds and the isolation of the house meant it was a good walk to shops at Barmouth or Fairbourne or a drive to Dolgellau. This was for us one of the charms of the location. We also liked the fact that there was plenty of space for a large party to get together (7 people in our case) and at the same time places where one could be alone!
