    Hen Gapel was our very own slice of heaven for 7 wonderful days. The road may be long and windy (approx 15 minutes) from the main road but its certainly worth it for the benefit of the location. If remoteness is your wish, you couldn’t find a better place to be. We had a family holiday, 6 adults and 1 teen in total. The cottage was exceptional. It had everything we needed and more. The pool table was invaluable with all ages keen to have a game. Plenty of room if you needed your own space as well. We enjoyed the kitchen / dining room the most, all open plan and all meals and board games, conversations seemed to be based here. The log fire was used once or twice to take any chill away from the rooms, truly mesmerising when you have a rainy day. Harlech and it’s beach are 25 minutes away. The nearest shop we found was a Spar in Harlech so be sure to get everything you need on your daily trip. We did pre-order a Tesco delivery for the evening we arrived, which was perfect. The cottage is situated in a beautiful location. Quiet, safe and plenty of opportunities to walk over the hill to the lake or along the country lane. Once you’ve done the drive from the main road a couple of times it becomes so much easier, even pleasurable. The only traffic you find is the local farmer who always makes way for you to pass. Pat and the owner Jane we’re so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Having a BBQ, drinking cold beer, watching hawks flying overhead, sharing a meal with 3 generations, clear skies at night, sunny day at the beach with the family (including the dog), it’s what life’s all about and I honestly can’t recommend this place enough. Genuinely sad to leave and still think about it now.
