  • "Really nice lodge, very clean with everything provided that you would need."

    The hot tub is small for the number the lodge can sleep. 3 great pubs in walking distance.

  • "Everything was as described in the listing of Sun View Lodge, on the website."

    One of the party (of 6) would have benefitted from better indoor lighting but overall a good time was had by all. Would recommend the lodge to other prospective holiday makers.

    Thank you for the lovely feedback and we are delighted you all enjoyed the lodge. Lighting is on our 'to do' list as we appreciate some areas need more lights. Hopefully, you will re-visit in the future. Best wishes, Elaine and Matt Property Owner

  • "We had a great time in Wales and all the extras in the cabin was great and very much appreciated (games, books, kitchen accessories etc) the owners have gone above and beyond with this but the cabin itself needs some diy."

    The door handles were really loose and I feared they might come off and lock one of us in a room! The hot tub cover needs replacing as it’s become waterlogged and smells awful! This combined with no daily testing of the water left the tub unusable after a couple of days use despite us showering prior to use. We know the water quality is important being a hot tub owner ourselves but this was never checked and nothing left for us to check ourselves which was disappointing! The bed downstairs was really uncomfortable we could feel every spring and was very snug for 2 adults! The sofas in lounge could also do with being replaced - obviously these are pieces of furniture that’s being used all the time so it’s understandable that they felt well used but it just gave the cabin a very tired feel and we didn’t get a good nights sleep any night which was a shame. The kids had the upstairs rooms which seemed fine and the added little games room was a big hit but unfortunately the wifi is pretty much non existent, it connects to the cabin but not to the internet so anyone relying on this would have trouble. Fortunately we weren’t worried about the wifi. Just basic tv aswell although it’s got sky we couldn’t watch any movies or certain sky tv channels as needed a pin which wasn’t given!

    HI Emma, Thank you for taking the time to provide this 'feedback. We are very pleased you and your family enjoyed staying at our Lodge but would like to respond to some of your concerns. We took ownership of the Lodge less than 12 months ago along with the furniture, fittings and Hot tub. We are gradually replacing items as necessary which is why 'feedback' is so important to us. Firstly, the door handles, this is the first time there has been an issue raised and did cause some alarm that you felt you could be locked in one of the rooms! I have had all the door handles thoroughly checked and although they are all as old as the Lodge and in line with the style of the Lodge, please be assured that they are in good working order. Secondly, the Hot tub - we agree the cover is 'tired' but definitely not waterlogged and foul smelling. it is thorouhgly cleaned after each guest whether that being weekly or in some cases can be 2 - 3 times per week depending on length of stays. We have tried to get a replacement cover but this is prvong very difficult due to the age of the Hot tub. Regarding the upkeep and the cleanliness of the Hot tub, this is emptied, thoroughly cleaned, disenfected and refilled with the PH of the water checked and chlorinated between guests. We do not have a Maintenance Team on such a small site for daily checks and are not allowed to leave such equipment out for guests due to the dangers to small children and other health and safety reugulations. We do advise guests shower prior to using the Hot tub. Had we known that you had concerns during your stay, our Housekeeping Team could have assisted. Thirdly, the downstairs bedroom is advertised as having a 'double' bed and the mattress was replaced last year so we were surprised to learn that you felt the springs. The sofas were not replaced when we purchased the Lodge and we have had minimal complaints regardiing them but will be replacing them at some point in the future. Finally, the 'wifi' is 4g network reliant on the capacity available in that area and unfortunately at the mercy of the network provider which is beyond our control. We don't advertise having 'sky', currently provide 'freeview' channels only hence the reason we don't provide or have any need for a 'pin number'. However, we do provide a wide range of DVD's suitable for Adults and children. Hopefully, we have covered all your points raised and once again 'thank you' for choosing our lovely Lodge for a holiday. Best regards, Elaine and Matt. Property Owner

  • "We were in love with the cabin!"

    The owners were so accommodating and kind. It was all decorated for Christmas and the owners allowed us to decorate for our birthdays. It was so peaceful and chilled, just what we needed when life is so hectic in Dec. The hot tub was a great hit and we spent a lot of time in it. I have already recommended it to several people and will def be back in the summer.

Located in a timeless village within Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, you are in the midst of the most attractive part of the region.

The character, comfort and charm give it a magical feeling and is most suitable for families.

Be greeted by a large open-plan living space the moment you step through the door with a wonderful sitting area inviting you to relax on the plush, leather sofas.

Let the flat electric feature fire keep the room nice and toasty whilst you put your feet up and flick on the TV for an evening of entertainment.

Walk through to the well-appointed kitchen, fitted to a high-standard which is the perfect spot for preparing some tasty treats for your loved ones.

The ground-floor has a double bedroom with matching bedside tables complete with lamps for some late night reading and an abundance of storage space, served by a shower room.

Venture up to the first floor where you will find a twin bedroom and a master double with a children's single bed and access to a small balcony area so you can enjoy a cup of tea and a good read as the sun rises.

Discover a delightful games area housing table football, an Xbox 360 and TV with a DVD player, sure to keep your little ones entertained for the whole day, whilst you enjoy a relaxing soak in the outdoor hot tub.

The property is surrounded by grassy areas and its own decked veranda with plenty of furniture for some alfresco dining.

Set in this delightful village, the property is within easy reach of two pubs/restaurants of your choosing where you can sample some Welsh delicacies, or enjoy some traditional pub food.

A short drive away brings you to the hugely popular Shell Island which gives some of the most magnificent views imaginable and a lovely beach adorned with wild flowers and seashells, ideal for spending an afternoon sunbathing, playing a variety of beach games with your children, or swimming in the shallow waters.

The Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park is rich with tourist sites for exploring, particularly those interested in walking, cycling and hiking opportunities.

If you're looking for a spot of history, make sure you visit the medieval Harlech Castle or brave the Llanfair Slate Caverns which hold a wealth of mining history.

About the location

LLANBEDR

Harlech 3 miles; Barmouth 8 miles.

The pretty village of Llanbedr quietly nestles in ancient woodland between The Rhinogs, part of the Snowdonia Mountains, and the stunning golden beaches of the North Wales coastline. Situated next to the beautiful River Artro, and boasting a mild climate due to its unusual positioning behind the high dunes of a nature reserve, this charming village has an exciting array of wildlife and birds, handy local shops, bike hire and mountain walks on your doorstep, as well as two excellent pubs. The small town of Harlech is just 3 miles away and boasts the World Heritage Site of Harlech Castle, a majestic 13th century stronghold, the most impressive of all those built in North Wales by Edward I. Popular with golfers due to its famous Royal St. David's course, Harlech also boasts an excellent variety of amenities including some good quality restaurants and the most magnificent six-mile long sandy beach, perfect for wonderful walks and family fun. Nearby Barmouth offers the amazing Panorama Walk along the beautiful Mawddach Estuary, providing breathtaking vistas, which were described by John Ruskin as “the most sublime view in Europe” and also a harbour from which you can catch a ferry to Fairbourne for a ride on the miniature railway, or a boat trip out to sea to try mackerel fishing. With the delights of Snowdonia National Park and beautiful Cardigan Bay to discover, this is a fantastic holiday location at any time of the year.
