  • "Loved the accommodation."

    What did let it down was all the dog hair and dog treats that blew from under the sofa when we brought the fan into the living room. We really did our homework before booking. We were really disappointed that the beach at the end of the road was inaccessible to less mobile.

  • "This is our 4th year of renting one of these lovely cottages."

    We come twice a year with our two cocker spaniels. The location is fantastic for long walks along the beach. The cottage was spotless as usual and it has everything you could need. We just love it here!

  • "Lovely property, exactly as shown on the images."

    Great size - was ample space for us, our two dogs and our 5 months twins. Great location and plenty to keep us occupied without using the car most days. Lovely touch arriving to milk, eggs, bread, butter and jam. Would definitely recommend and we will come back again soon.

  • "We had a great time at Cornel Glyd."

    The cottage had all the comforts of home and everything we needed for our stay. We had a lovely welcome pack with bread, jam, eggs butter and delicious cheese - thank you. You could walk the dog to the beach down a quiet lane and there were lots of other good dog walks a short drive away. The cottage is in a good location for visiting Barmouth, Harlech, Portmadoc etc. There are some nice pubs for eating/drinking close by. All in all a lovely comfy cottage in a good location.

  • "We reported the shower having a problem, it was either scalding or cold, the problem wasn’t rectified The extractor hood over the hob had a thick layer of dust on it, clearly hadn’t been cleaned for ages."

    There were grains of rice in the dishwasher when we arrived. A lamp was without a bulb in the lounge. Attention to detail was lacking.

    The owner has confirmed that the maintenance team visited the property, they tested the shower water to check that it was running at a proper temperature - which it was and they left. When you phoned about the bulb one was delivered within 5 minutes for you. As the owner heard nothing further she assumed all was well. It is a shame that you didn't mention anything else during your holiday as the owner wants all of her guests to have a great stay, and if anything goes wrong she is happy to resolve as soon as possible. She provides 3 contact numbers for guests to call her, to ensure she can respond as soon as possible. Property Owner

    They could fit a very nice wooden gate an would look the part too. As there was old people in one of the cottages and she could not move it and at one point it fell on her. but apart from that the place is great the dogs loved it we loved it 4stars would be 5 star but the gate needs sorting .

    It was within easy walking distance to the beach as well as beautiful countryside around the area. The cottage was immaculate with everything we (and our dog) needed. I'd highly recommend a stay here, or in one of the adjoining cottages. Barmouth beach is beautiful for a long, barefoot walk in the sunshine. We'll definitely visit again.

  • "The walk to the beach unpleasant."

    Huge caravan parks meant loads of traffic on road with no pavement. Anyone elderly or with walking difficulties would struggle to get onto the beach unless they found the ramp down to the beach through one of the caravan parks. It does say no through road to beach on entry signs to the park. The huge rocks down to the beach are impossible to climb over. We mainly went to Barmouth for the beach. Had this of been made clear on cottage information we would have chosen somewhere else. Also, if taking your dog no secure area to let them off the lead

    The cottage was really well equipped and comfortable - we had a welcome pack of bread/eggs and milk on arrival and accommodation was very clean. The location was excellent. We tried out the local eateries, as recommended in the guest book, and we were not disappointed. Weather was also very good for mid September; we were privy to seeing some lovely sunsets and this all added that special ingredient to a wonderful week for us. Would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to visit this part of North Wales.

  • "Difficult one because it's not really your fault or the cottage owners', but was disappointed not to have use of the swimming pool advertised, even though we were there at the time when pools in Wales were allowed to be open."

    In the event we were lucky with weather so were in the sea every day and didn't miss the pool. However, I paid extra (probably to the tune of a couple of hundred pounds) on the basis that the cottage came with free use of a pool, and this service was not available. I wouldn't have paid as much as this for a cottage had it been advertised with no pool. It would be a good gesture if there was some form of compensation to reflect this, though i'm not holiding by breath. Otherwise, the cottage was fine - clean and comfy, though wifi not great, and the area was brilliant for the kids.

    Thank you for your feedback. Customer comments are very important to us. The swimming pool is not currently available due to Covid 19 restrictions. It will re open in March 2021 Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage with views of the sea in the distance."

    Very clean and comfortable, quiet and relaxing. Everything was catered for and the gestures of leaving bread milk eggs and butter was a kind thought and much appreciated. The under floor heating made the cottage warm and cosy. You are close to amenities and a short car or train ride into Barmouth or Duffryn is up the road where you have a supermarket, butchers and post office come newsagents. We would definitely book this cottage again.

Pubs were very dog friendly.Fantastic walks around from easy beaches to quite moderate to hard walks up mountains. We would definately visit again.

    The first thing I noticed when I opened the door was how lovely and clean the cottage was and cosy. The welcome pack, thoughtful touches for our dog and even some Halloween sweets for our daughter, were much appreciated. The bed was very comfortable. The WiFi was great and the large TV was better than ours at home! Best of all, it's a short walk to the beach which was perfect for a ball loving dog, not to mention the stunning sunsets. You can also see the sea from the courtyard which is lovely with a cup of tea in the morning sun.

    Lovely sea views on one side and beautiful welsh hills on the other. The cottage was an absolute delight. We took both our dogs and they was welcomed by a doggie biscuit each, much to their excitement!! We also had a some nice goodies waiting for us humans, which was a lovely touch after a long journey (we could make a welcome cup of tea and have a snack on arrival). It was clean and presented to a very high standard, the underfloor heating was a luxury. Along with the ease of booking and information from the owner regarding the key collection, we won’t hesitate to book this cottage again and thankyou for those welcome little touches.

  • "The cottage is very well appointed warm and comfortable."

    However I do think the following three observations need to be made clear. I think the situation/position of the cottage should be made clear in that it's surrounded by caravan and camping sites and all the noise and hustle and bustle and endless dog barking that goes with such an environment. If the main entrance/exit to cottage was blocked with parked cars I was told to use the other entrance/exit this proved to be fairly dangerous as cars sped up and down the narrow road and difficult to see clearly as the angle of the wall either side obscures your vision, perfectly alright if you were in a 4x4 or farm vehicle as you'd be able to see over the wall. Being in Cornel Glyd anyone wishing to use the laundry facility has to walk past the cottage door and as with people washing and drying they tend to go back and forth, so if your sitting outside enjoying a cup of tea or lunch it does tend to make everyone feel slightly uncomfortable as they go about their business.

  • "We stayed for a week in March, unfortunately the weather was not great for us."

    We arrived after 4pm and found the cottage easily. Keys were in a secure key safe and we were given the lock number well in advance. The cottage was exceptionally clean and welcoming. It was great to find a nice supply of tea, coffee, milk, jam, bread and eggs and a few extras. Well equipped for our dog, bowls and blankets were supplied. It is unusual to find so many extras in a holiday cottage. Easy access to the beach for long walks, and a local Spa under a mile away with a great butchers (try the homemade pork pies). Great base for touring North Wales. All rooms are very well equipped, nice size lounge with comfortable settees and a good size TV. Main bedroom good size and King size bed. Underfloor heating and a very toasty bathroom with a large shower. All in all would highly recommend a stay at Cornel Glyd, although probably gets very busy around the surrounding area in high season so would recommend either early or later in the year.

  • "Well it was a cold ish week and the temperature of the cottage was toasty so that was good."

    The shower was powerful and large. Bathroom a very high standard. It has been done very well with thick curtains and blinds, solid good quality furniture, excellent bed (I usually end up with back ache when I go away so this was a big plus) and a king size bed like we have at home so everything added up to make our stay a good one. We were really unwell with a flu thing for the whole week so we spent more time in the cottage than we anticipated. We cooked roast dinners etc most evenings and everything you need for cooking is there in the kitchen. We watched a lot of TV on the huge TV so this was a bonus and wifi was fast. I don't think they could have done anything to improve this place really. We went walking the first day and the people are really friendly in the area. The housekeepers got in touch really quickly when we had a question. We will definitely be back in the future. Thank you so much.
