  • "Beautiful location and loverly converted barn."

    There were lambs in the field and bluebells like a carpet in the woods surrounding the house and apart from that nothing, but peace and quiet. The barn was immaculate with lots of little touches like fresh flowers from the garden, really good quality bathroom products, the basics for cooking and enough equipment so you actually could (this is often overlooked) including spare water bottles. It's the little things that make the difference and give a place character. The walks and scenery in the surrounding areas can be easy or challenging but with mountains and beautiful beaches, upon our return we immediately booked again for next year as there were so many walks we wanted to do but simply ran out of time. Would definitely recommend and so would our pooch.

    What wonderful comments - thank you! Delighted to hear you had a great time at Gelli Bach and that you have booked again for 2023. I can give you details of lots more lovely walks for your next visit! Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely time at Gelli Bach…."

    The stay was really poignant as i spent most of my childhood summers at the main house, then owned by my grandparents. We were fortunate with the weather and the cottage had everything we needed.. Set below the Rhinog mountains, the area is slightly often the Snowdonia beaten track but the scenery remains stunning with far fewer visitors than Snowdon and surrounds.. The owners couldn’t have made us feel more welcome and we would look to return..

  • "The cottage and location were perfect for us, it was idyllic."

    Thank you very much

    Hi. I'm extremely grateful for your feedback and really pleased to hear that you loved Gelli Bach - it is a place that is very close to my heart! Is there any chance you could elaborate on your scores for facilities and comfort. What did you think was missing from the barn in relation to these two categories? Is there anything I can easily add or change? I'm always trying to improve (and maintain) the service I offer my guests and any information you can give me would be hugely appreciated. Thank you very much. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very clean, cosy, comfortable & decorated to high standards."

    The drying room was great for keeping our coats & boots in. It's situated in a beautiful spot & there were plenty of walks straight from the door. Also plenty of places to visit without too much driving. We really enjoyed our holiday week & would love to stay there again. We will be recommending the cottage to our family & friends.

  • "I knew the area well before booking so I knew how stunning the location would be, and was not disappointed."

    My only concern was the cottage details said there was a microwave and there wasn’t. We managed but we had brought quite a lot of pre-cooked meals so it would have been useful. Also the hot water in the bathroom sink upstairs did not work. A teapot would also have been useful

    Thank you so much for your comments and I'm glad you had a lovely time. Just to let you know that Gelli Bach now has a microwave and a teapot! And the hot water tap in the upstairs basin has been replaced. I do hope we can welcome you back there another time. Property Owner

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.
