  • "Fabulous cottage, lovely quiet setting."

    Everything lovely and welcome was first class. Plenty to see and do nearby It’s up there with one of the nicest cottages we’ve stayed in. For us it was the location and setting. We would definitely come back here again if we visited wales.

    Lovely, comfortable, clean cottage, very peaceful, surrounded by beautiful scenery. Good to sit out if weather permits. Owner is friendly and informative and her cakes are fab. Will return again and definitely recommend.

  • "This delightful cottage provided us with the perfect base for walking in the Rhinogs for the week."

    It is beautifully positioned with not another house to be seen and the peace and quiet was balm to the soul. The cottage is well equipped, although as it is off the beaten track a freezer would have been an advantage (maybe it could go in the small lean-to with the washing machine?). Be that as it may, I would go back tomorrow like a shot! Moelfre Cottage is a real find.

    Lovely welcome with cupcakes on our arrival. The cottage is perfect for a get away but close enough to Harlech and other attractions in Snowdonia. The beaches are wonderful in this area. We couldn’t fault our stay our hosts were warm and welcoming would highly recommend.

  • "We've just returned from a fabulous weeks stay at the wonderful Moelfre Cottage."

    What a wonderfully, cosy cottage and the decor is of a very high standard. Location is exactly what we were looking for, quite remote with stunning views of the mountains but also close enough to the lovely village of Llanbedr which has some lovely pubs to eat in, a convenience store and a cafe that serves lovely take away sandwiches for your travels. The owners of the cottage were very welcoming and friendly and we arrived to find some gorgeous looking cupcakes and they tasted delicious too, a lovely surprise. The owners also have a fabulous campsite just down the road from the cottage with a wonderful waterfall walk and a few other very scenic walks too. We walked there from the cottage, did the waterfalls walk and back again quite easily as a family but you can drive there. We spent a few days local as it is so beautiful there and walking/cycling in either direction from the cottage is a must to take in the scenic views. Harlech is 3 miles away and has a fantastic beach for the whole family, castle (well worth a visit) and some quaint shops. The ice cream parlour sells the best tasting ice cream that I have ever tasted tbh. We spent a couple of days at the beach too, stunning. Other pretty villages that are well worth a visit is Beddlegert and Bettws-y-Coed. We'll definitely return again.

    It is beautifully presented and in such a peaceful location. Walking distance to the Nantcol waterfalls and around Moelfre mountain. Ten minutes drive to a selection of beaches and less than an hours drive to snowdon and other places such as Portmerion. This is the second time we’ve stayed in the area and we would definitely come back to Moelfre. Eleri was really friendly and helpful, bringing up a high chair for our youngest. As well as leaving the most delicious cup cakes we’ve ever tasted for us upon arrival. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a quiet stay that is a short drive from beaches, castles and mountain walks!

    I cannot fault the stay. From the minute we pulled up to the cottage it felt like home. The location of the cottage is breathtaking. Fabulous, unspoilt views and amazingly peaceful. Set amongst hills and near the farm, the cottage was a little piece of heaven.The little stream running through the back garden was beautiful and the children loved playing in it. Absolutely spotless cottage. The cottage was very well equipped. Bathrooms modern and clean. Bedrooms stunning. The views from every window in the house perfect. Owners were so friendly. Fresh baking on arrival a very thoughtful touch. Fabulous location for visiting Portmerion, Harlech castle and the local beaches. A must was going to Nancol Waterfalls and swimming in the stream. I would 100 percent recommend this cottage and location.

    Beautifully furnished to a high standard. We arrived to some delicious home made cakes which was a lovely thought by the owner. Cottage was perfectly situated to visit many attractions locally including Nantcol waterfalls, Harlech, Barmouth and Snowdon. Would definitely stay again! Perfect for a family of four. My only suggestion for improvement is to have a softer pillow. I just couldn’t sleep with my head at such an elevation. However that’s my personal preference. There also seems to be a slight leak in the downstairs Lounge window (near the bronze award certificate) which lets rain.

  • "It is a lovely cottage in the shadow of Moelfre."

    Inside it's well equipped with all the kitchen basics, smart TVs in each room and decent working wifi which given the likelihood of rain and lack of a mobile signal is a very good thing - if you are planning to use your phones satnav best to set the route before you get in the car! We were greeted personally by the lovely host, a tray of cakes and lots of covid assurance, gels etc. If I were to suggest one improvement it would the addition of a gas bbq - the veranda / patio is lovely and would be the perfect place to fire up the bbq on a warm and not wet evening. Strongly recommend.

  • "The cottage had many excellent features, not least the superb situation and not forgetting the delicious cupcakes provided by the friendly owner."

    The main bed was especially comfortable. But there were a few niggles, some mentioned by previous tenants. The sofa was uncomfortable for any length of sitting. There was an unpleasant smell in one kitchen cupboard (only when opened). The lighting did not encourage reading - if only the quality ceiling lights in the kitchen and bedroom had also been installed across the main living area. We thought the heating was barely sufficient in the main room (November, 5-8C outside). It needed a 2nd radiator. We used the electric fan heater most of the time, especially in the morning and when returning late afternoon, to bring the temperature up to a reasonable level. Bedroom warmth was fine though. In summary, we wouldn't hesitate to rent in warmer months but wouldn't in the colder months.

  • "Had a fantastic week at Moelfre cottage, really lovely property in a stunning location, it was clean and decorated beautifully also well equipped with lovely fluffy towels and the bed was so comfy."

    Loved the peace and quite and just hearing the sound of running water from the stream that runs along the garden, beautiful when you're sitting outside on the balcony and the stunning waterfalls that are not too far just down from the cottage. The cakes we found on arrival were exquisite and the owners were very welcoming and Eleri popped along to see us to check everything was ok. Lots of places to visit nearby, the Vic down in the village is a lovely pub and reasonably priced with a good menu. If we had a slight niggle it would be with the sofas which we found difficult to get comfy on but apart from that everything else we couldn't fault it, my partner also missed his coffeee machine so maybe one of these would make it perfect. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would be happy to return. Thank you

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.
