  • "Beautiful little cottage with an outstanding view; lovely to be able to walk to the beach from the cottage and lots of other walks to explore too."

  • "Loved this little cottage!"

    Tiny but offered everything we needed for our week in Harlech. Beautiful views across the snowden range and the castle plus a fab garden. Can’t fault it, would definitely like to come back here.

  • "The owners have got this one perfect."

    Great views of Harlech, the castle and Snowdonia, mixed with a fab garden, plenty of outdoor space and the steepest road in the world! Conquer that and you have a train station with links to plenty of towns, or the amazing beach is just a walk away. Local food in the small village is great, including fresh bread, chinese and indian. The house has everything thought of including for the kids. Children will find guides for walks, games, toys and even some bits for the bath. We had the extras a family needs like kids kitchenware, bubble bath, milk and washing up bits, those things that just make it easy to relax. The house has a good stock of menus, books and leaflets so you can plan your whole week with the free wifi whilst making the most of reading each night. There was even sky and amazon tv! Comfy beds with awesome views. There is a play park close by and plenty to do whatever the weather!

    Just perfect.

  • "Snowdon View is a lovely small cottage with a fantastic view and central but quiet location in Harlech."

    It is located on the steepest hill in the town, possibly the steepest street in the world, so be aware you need to be reasonably able to walk from the cottage even to the town centre. We were surprised no bleach was left to clean the toilet.

  • "Very nice cottage, ideally located with a magnificent view, small but has everything."

    We went by train and had enough to do in a week without having a car.

  • "Made better by picking the hottest week of the summer, Snowdon View is what it says on the name sign, with commanding views over the Snowdonia range and within walking distance of one of the best beaches in the area."

    Unfortunately for weary children and parents there is not a flat route back to the house in the evening. The facilities are excellent and I would be back again in an instant. My wife, who suffers from vertigo, is not so passionate about the idea, but I am working on it!

  • "Superb stay."

    Brilliant location. The cottage was just right for our size family. The kids had a fab time, having the swimming pool close by in Harlech was a real bonus on wetter days. Having said that there are plenty of sheltered walks through beautiful woodland locally, and the sand dunes are all the more atmospheric in the storms!

    It is a very cosy little cottage in a fabulous setting. It is on a very steep hill but you do get a beautiful view from the terrace area you can even see the castle from the skylight in the bathroom. Would definitely recommend we had a fab stay cottage is equipped with everything you need for a great holiday.

  • "Cottage was everything we expected and more, the location was perfect for beach days and local trips on the not so sunny days."

    The owners could not have been more helpful and gave loads of ideas and tips for the area. We have two small children and the cottage was well set up for families. Nothing could beat the view from the balcony and the garden for the kids. Perfect trip away.

    The owners were very attentive and apologetic with regard to this. Very refreshing to have such things promptly and closely given attention to. A very comfortable, clean, and well-equipped cottage - definitely more of a home than a holiday let.

  • "My husband and I have just returned from a week at Snowdon View."

    The property is in a fabulous location overlooking Harlech, with the Snowdon range of mountains in the distance. We sat every evening on the decking and watched the sun go down - it was magical. Inside it was like home from home - very well equipped and comfortable. The owner has even supplied an extensive supply of books and brochures on the area which we found very useful, especially the books of walks. Will definitely revisit in the future.
