  • "We had a wonderful stay at Seagulls."

    The bungalow was very spacious and suited our needs perfectly. We loved the seaside theme and we felt very much at home. The sea front is a 2 minute walk away and is accessed by a steepish slope or a winding slope for less able or wheelchairs. We were able to walk along the front which overlooks the sea but sadly there is no access to the beach other than over a lot of stones. The little train which goes to the estuary overlooking Barmouth is delightful and there is a small boat which will take you over to Barmouth from there. Fairbourne is a very quiet but friendly place and we very much enjoyed our stay. The nearest supermarket is in Dolgellau but the small shop in Fairbourne is well stocked with basics. We found Barmouth to be a very pretty place with a lovely large accessible beach, small town, mountains and harbour and of course the impressive railway bridge over the estuary. There were several interesting restaurants and shops here. We will definitely be coming back as there is so much more to be seen in this wonderful area and would highly recommend Seagulls as a base.

  • "An excellent little bungalow accommodated the 4 adults and our German Shepherd in our party very comfortably."

    Nice and roomy and well equip. When we arrived the bungalow was spotless, it had been very thoroughly cleaned from top to bottom. Nice location close to the beach and an excellent base for our exploring the region. We would certainly look to book again.

  • "We had stayed at Seagulls before, so we knew exactly what to expect."

    Overall, Seagulls is ideal for our needs and serves as a great base for a seaside holiday.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the Seagulls, it certainly suited our grandchildren."

    The table in the kitchen was really useful for crafts & they enjoyed watching the little train go by. The cottage was well stocked with equipment both indoors & outdoors and we couldn’t fault the cleanliness. However as with previous feedback, it is such a shame that the patio doors won’t open and maybe having a few drought friendly plants in the yard would add to the overall experience. For its size Fairbourne had everything you need for an enjoyable holiday. We would certainly return and will be recommending the cottage & the area.

  • "The cooker extractor fan did not work and the settees were soft with very little support."

    Also the outside rear of the property could do with a few potted plants to brighten it up as it was a big area but all concrete, just like a car park. We enjoyed our stay but will not repeat the experience.

    Thank you for your comments. We have checked the extractor fan and its working perfectly. It hasn't been an issue for previous guests. The sofas are Laura Ashley soft cushions but we do understand that they wont suit everyone due to comfort being very subjective. We don't have pot plants outside as they need constant watering and attention which we cant provide as we don't live locally to the property and want to provide the best service for our Customers.

    Back yard could be made to look a lot better. Perhaps a little enclosed fenced area with some pot plants and patio table and chairs. Jusr somewhere nicer to sit outside ans weather was good. Also patio doors did not open!! Otherwise nice clean and warm bungalow. would stay again.

  • "Seagulls is a spacious, comfortable 3 bedroomed, 2 reception roomed bungalow."

    It is only 3 mins walk from the beach, and 5 mins walk to the railway station, to the famous miniature railway, to 2 general stores, a butcher's, a fish and chip shop and a small greengrocer's. There is also an Indian restaurant/take-away which I have yet to try. The lounge at Seagulls has 2 x 2-seater couches and one beanbag. It could do with one more proper armchair, since it sleeps 5 people. My one reservation is that it has no real garden. True there is a large space beyond the kitchen door but it is surfaced like a car-park. No grass. No separate patio. No flowerbeds. No flowers in pots. No fence/gate between it's entry and the road. There are table and chairs outside but it is no pleasure at all to sit there. Apart from this, Seagulls is near perfect. Depends if you like to see/sit out in a garden as part of your stay. I do and I missed that freedom.

  • "A fantastic holiday cottage."

    Very well equipped, super comfortable beds and really clean through out. We had a wonderful time and were sad to say goodbye! We are going to be booking again for 2019 for sure. We had a fabulous holiday, the beach was a two minute walk away and the little shops stocked everything you could possibly need. The Indian restaurant provided a fantastic takeaway and the bar and grill on the beachfront served superb meals. We could not have wanted more. The garden offered a nice and secure safe space for our little dog whe also enjoyed the amazing beach. Wish we were still there now!

  • "Had a lovely time."

    However felt the bungalow was very tired and in need of some TLC.Inside was ok but mattress in double room was worn and uncomfortable due to springs being felt. Sofa was ok but once again cushions are worn and do not reach the edge of sofa. Patio doors are broken and do not open. It was hottest week for a long time with temperature in high 20’s to low 30’s. out side the bungalow is starting to look run down. Such a shame as it’s a lovely area.. We paid £479 for the week in June and strongly think, this is very overpriced considering the above. We would love to return but due to condition and price we won’t be doing so. Or will we be recommending to any of our friend or business customers. Will be interesting to see if you reply or publish this feedback like we have asked you to.
