  • "We had a beautiful stay."

    The advertisement states there is WiFi which is not the case. More information on the remoteness of the property and the lack of takeaways and restaurants would have been useful as most were closed. Lovely remote property.

  • "The remote location is stunning and certainly the best thing about this cottage."

    The owners seem very friendly - we met them both shortly. Overall a very good stay. Cleaning was very good in all rooms, but a bit below expectations in the kitchen. The dining table cover was dirty in various places, and the handles of some of the cabinets felt greasy. We had to rewash some of the dishes and pots, and there was no proper sponge available for doing so. There was also some pet hair on the stacked table set, on the unseen tables. In covid times, given the 'extra time' and attention allegedly given to cleaning, one expects all parts of the house to be spotless. The other parts of the house were all very clean, no complaints there. There was overall certainly enough room for us, but the pictures online are taken with a wide angle and in fact they are smaller than one is led to expect. The garden was fantastic, with amazing views over mountains, sea, and sunsets. The garden furniture was adequate, with a table for eating and chairs for lounging or reading. Bedding could be improved: the mattress felt old and a bit sunk, and the duvet and cover are cheap synthetic material that made us sweat every night. Bathroom was spotless and there was always warm water, which was a treat after wonderful hikes. Overall a very good stay, with some room for improvement as indicated. We can recommend this place, especially for the magical remote location and proximity to very good walks in the fascinating Rhinogydd/Rhinogs. The village of Llanbedr is 12 minute drive away (narrow road!) and the beach just a few minutes furhter.

  • "The owners were fantastic and couldn’t have helped us more."

    The property is very remote and our delivery didn’t make it, so the owner gave us food and drink to be getting on with and toys for our little boy to play with too! They were so friendly and helpful. The property is set in the most beautiful surroundings and we couldn’t fault the location. The beds were comfy and the towels were lovely and soft. We were left a lovely bottle of wine and juice for our boy on arrival, which was a lovely touch. There were enough plates/utensils etc and it was easy to cook in the house. The views were fabulous and we loved the proximity to the beach. However, we felt the property was overpriced. Whilst it was lovely and we had a great time, for the amount we paid, we expected a little more luxury. The boiler was very noisy and kept us awake and the hot water was intermittent.

  • "You book this cottage for the exceptional views."

    They don’t disappoint but in fact exceed all expectations. The cottage is basic though. No WiFi, no dishwasher and very low water pressure which makes showering difficult and it could do with a new double bed. However you can easily ignore these small problems for the location which is a true experience in itself.

  • "We are mainly walkers, and to wake up in this fabulous place every day was wonderful."

    Right in the heart of the mountains, majestic scenery and so much wild life. Even in inclement weather, you see a different perspective. The cottage was clean and comfortable and very welcoming after a whole day in the mountains. The owners and family are lovely friendly people. Helpful and of course knowledgeable about the area. Going back next year...... ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    calm and relaxing views are out of this world. The friendly owners are there if you need them and will tell about the walks from the farm that take you up into the mountains or down towards the village. . There are beaches within easy reach there are little railways nearby at Porthmadog and at Fairborne . There is so much to do or you can just relax away from the rat race .

  • "Everything was really good and very beautiful place in between the mountains."

    Just water pressure in shower was very weak.

  • "The location is truly outstanding."

    Given that it’s a working farm, nearly 5 miles off a main road and therefore facilities such as WiFi (given and expected in most parts of the world these days) is limited. However, the owners were extremely friendly, the mountain location breathtaking and the 15 minute drive down to Llanbedr awesome. We will definitely back. My sister, staying in a camper in Harlec came to visit and was moved to tears, by the views and the tranquility

The property

Llanbedr 5 miles.

It is situated at the foot of the Rhinog Mountain Range at the head of the Nantcol Valley in the beautiful Snowdonia National Park.

The Stable Cottage is a perfect rural retreat for anyone who wants to 'get away from it' all, and would suit couples, friends, or a family wishing to spend some quality time together.

Arranged over two floors, the cottage has an endearing, quirky charm, with lots of character and exposed beams.

The open-plan living space on the ground floor is welcoming and homely, and comprises of a well-appointed kitchen area, dining area and a sitting area with comfy sofas, TV and an electric fire.

The two bedrooms' upstairs are individually and tastefully decorated, both enjoying wonderful countryside views and serviced by the family bathroom.

Outside your holiday cottage is an enclosed garden with a picnic table, and has panoramic views down the valley.

Enjoy alfresco dining during the summer months and the absolute freedom away from the clutter of city life in this beautiful valley - a most special and adventurous place for children and adults to explore, with lots of natural wildlife to see, and if you’re lucky enough – wild goats, foxes, badgers and various birds of prey.

There are two private lakes and a mile of river, all a good walk away, where you can enjoy fishing or enjoy panning for gold in the nearby mine.

Outside, sit and relax and enjoy the sunsets over the Cardigan Bay.

Walkers will struggle to find a more suitably-located holiday cottage for indulging their passion, and despite the away-from-it-all location, the village of Llanbedr is only a short drive away and has three pubs and restaurants, a village shop, tea room and even cycle hire.

The surrounding area is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, with many renowned walking and mountain biking trails.

The area also boasts good golf courses, medieval castles such as Harlech Castle just eight miles away, the Snowdonia National Park and miles of stunning coastline.

This cottage is a superb rural retreat from which to explore this delightful area all year round.

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.
