  • "2 Borthwen is an attractive property in a good location just off the main street."

    Arriving on a busy weekend access off the High Street by the butchers is tricky. The first property on the left park 3 cars there leaving a very narrow space to enter. Anything other than a medium sized car would struggle at such times. There was parking either side of the junction as well at different times making visibility poor to pull out onto the main street at busy times The property is semi detached & parking for both is at the frontage of 2 Borthwen so this affects privacy & security for dogs if, as is permitted, the adjoining property had up to 3 cars. Any cars from the adjoining property need to open the gates to use the parking area anyway. The gates can be left open but only if dogs, young children won't be using the outside space. The small garden needs a lot of attention & looks nothing like the photograph. Internally, the external door to the main room can't be opened fully, nor can the one to the bathroom which was very frustrating. The main room is set out in a basic way with almost no decorative touches. Lamps (other than the harsh lighting of the industrial standard lamp) would add ambience. The floor, whilst safe underfoot, looks shabby & needs refurbishment. The garden equipment stored in the open under stairs space adds nothing to the feel of the space. The stairs are steep, slightly uneven & the handrail is inadequate. This should be mentioned in the description. Upstairs is cramped but to be expected due to the age of the property. The kitchen has the basics. Standard of cleaning seemed adequate although the internal section of the external door frames (visible when the doors are open) was very dirty.

  • "We had a lovely time at Borthwen Cottage."

    It's in an area we know well and with our dogs we had some lovely walks to the beach about a mile away. The cottage met all our requirements and was cosy and comfortable (we brought our own logs as they're not provided). It was clean and had everything we needed. The instructions for the cooker were useful as we normally cook with gas. The central heating was easy to use, it's set on eco so tends to revert back to that after a shortish while, so if still cold just check it and turn up again if needed. We had surprisingly good weather and were even able to sit in the lovely garden without being rained on. The cottage is very private with good parking space, plenty of room for the camper van we travelled in. We will definitely be coming back.

    Great for the dog with walks from the door, peacefully and relaxing, the beach is massive and sandy but beware dogs are not allowed on the beach during the summer season. This cottage is lovely with everything you need, the heating keeps you snug and warm. The kitchen is well equipped with quality appliances. Upstairs is a little snug, buts it’s a cottage what else would you expect. We will be back.

    It’s a great location for getting around snowdonia, 11 mins drive from Harlech. The cottage is very pretty with off street parking that is gated. It has a lovely garden and patio, we ate on the patio every evening that the weather permitted. The cottage was very clean, a great big tv, Wi-Fi that worked the entire week which is important these days. The beds and the bedding all very comfortable as were the sofas. We liked Wales and this cottage and will be booking this cottage again next year. A couple of comments prior to this mentioned it was cold. The weather was not cold enough for us to require heating so I can’t comment on that. There is no washing machine which was a little surprising and also no freezer. Both of these are small inconveniences and as long as one knows in advance are fine. It was a great cottage, great location, nicely and comfortably furnished. Thank you it was a great week.

  • "2 Borthwen Cottages is a delightful little cottage and perfectly placed for exploring the surrounding area."

    I would definitely recommend and would not be averse to staying again. We had our Jack Russell with us and so it was wonderful that we had a safe garden for him. We made the mistake of leaving the gates open one evening when we went out and came back to a driveway covered in sheep droppings so we had obviously had visitors whilst we were out. Just be aware of this (any future stayers) as how we avoided treading in it in the dark I'll never know. You will need a car if you are wanting to go out for meals / drinks although you could probably stretch to a half hour walk to Ysgethin. That said, nothing is too far away. The beds and bedding were very comfortable although the double bed did feel like a very small double. There are no wardrobes but there are plenty of hooks on the walls to hang clothes with some hangers provided. The kitchen and bathrooms are very small although the shower is a great size. A couple of times we could have done with the heating turning up but despite following the instructions it would not allow us to go higher than the preset temperature. We had good weather but this would be a problem in colder months. The driveway area could definitely do with a tidy up and the lawn area could do with a couple of hours spent in it. There is no washing machine, there is no room for one in the cottage, but could perhaps have one put in the outside shed maybe? We had friends staying down the road so managed to use theirs a couple of times. Could also do with possibly a few more plates / glasses etc but that's being really picky. Definitely worth a visit and would stay again.

  • "The actual cottage itself is nice - good location, nice sized enclosed garden, nice bathroom,kitchen and woodburning stove."

    However, it is clear to see that this property was either lived in by the owners therefore they kitten out in chartiy shop goods or inherited by a relative. The reasons we say this are due to the poor furnishings i.e. in the bedroom there was a random floral eye mask, floral photo frame (with no photo) and some pine cones? There was a light up portable electric mirror which was broken (didn't light up), only 1 lamp in the bedroom (no lamp in spare bedroom), one office style lamp in the lounge. When we arrived under the stairs which was open plan i.e. no door, the hoover was dumped in full view along with the parasol for the garden and garden seat pads? In addition, in the lounge their was a horrible wooden box with stones in (looks like someone had collected from the beach), a trinket box which contained picture hooks and some horrible horse head bookends. There was a lack of heating instructions in the cottage - no cottage book with instructions and when we tried to adjust the heating it was in Dutch? In addition, the cleaning of the cottage was poor, when we arrived we picked up at least 8 piles of dog mess from the garden. We contacted the owners about this but they didn't seem too bothered about it, it put us off. We've stayed in many cottages and this one was nice i.e. the actual cottage, however, there was poor attention to detail by the owners. A washing machine and hairdryer would also be useful.

Cottage is cosy, warm & beautifully clean with the added bonus that everything works. The garden is enclosed & our dogs were happy to wander safely. Easy walks from the cottage to the beach through woodland/along a lane - takes about 20 minutes. Beach is very long and has sand dunes so brilliant for walking. Winter time is obviously quieter with less choice of places to visit/eat at (particularly when you have 2 hounds) but we found the pub at Talybont (20min walk) very welcoming & serving good food.

    The moment you step in you are overwhelmed with the cozy atmosphere. At least to us it was that way. A nice 30 minute walk takes you to the beach with marvellously wide sands.

Harlech 5 miles; Barmouth 5 miles.

The pleasant village of Dyffryn Ardudwy quietly nestles between The Rhinogs, part of the Snowdonia Mountains, and the stunning golden beaches of the North Wales coastline. The unusual positioning of this charming village results in it having its own mild climate, as well as offering good local shops. The surrounding area has an exciting array of wildlife and birds including soaring buzzards. The small town of Harlech is just 4 miles away, dominated by its majestic 13th century castle which is a World Heritage Site, and the most impressive of all the castles 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. Nearby Barmouth offers an amazing Panorama Walk with breathtaking views and also a harbour from which you can enjoy 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.
