"Absolutely loved our stay here!"
Beautiful house, beautiful location and lots to do in the area. Thank you!
"We loved our stay at Bodlondeb!"
It's a beautiful cottage, so tastefully decorated and very well-equipped. Our two boys (11 and 13) shared the upper floor which was perfect for them. So many lovely little touches throughout the property. Would highly recommend!
"We really enjoyed our stay in Tremadog, perfectly located for exploring Snowdonia and the Lyn Peninsula."
The cottage is well equipped and homely. Bedrooms are all great, but unfortunately due to unseasonably hot temperatures the loft rooms were unusable, would be a problem with a bigger group, so our daughter slept in the sizeable walk-in-wardrobe in our room. Pictures of the 'garden' would be good just so you know what to expect (not much!). But overall a lovely place and we would stay again.
"Positives about this property."
It’s has been decorated beautifully and you can tell a lot of care and thought has gone into it, beds were comfy and it was super clean, lots of lovely touches around the house. The locations great to get around to other close towns nearby. Now unfortunately onto the negatives - The attic bedroom has no windows and it was absolutely roasting hot and totally unbearable to sleep in as the weather was so good, so my son had to sleep on the floor in our bedroom. I text the number for the owner asking if there was a fan also asked if there was an iron and ironing board as I could not find one anywhere but unfortunately did not get a response. PARKING is first come first served, if you do manage to park near the house the minute you move your space is taken so trying to park when you come back from a day out isn’t fun! We had a morning raid from the man who owns the shop over the road because the friends we went with had nowhere to park but on the pavement outside his shop. He scared the living daylights out of our kids as he was banging on the door that loud and shouting up at the windows at 7.50am. Totally uncalled for as we would have moved the car without issue, didn’t need the abuse at all. So I think there needs to be a note put in the house to let holiday makers know not to park near his shop as apparently it happens all the time. The “garden,”(no grass) I would say more of a small yard and when you climb the very steep steps to get to the terrace its a disappointment as it has no seating at all so the “Garden” was for us a disappointment considering how much thought has gone into the inside of the house, the outside let it down.
"Nice comfy and well decorated house."
Great to stay with our family (6 persons including 4 kids).

Resting centrally in the quaint village of Tremadog, Gwynedd, is Bodlondeb, a fabulous three-storey dwelling set in a Grade II listed building with over 200 years of history.
Just a stone's throw away from a host of local amenities, and a short journey from the shoreline of Porthmadog, the cottage welcomes four adults, four children, and one furry friend, offering flexible sleeping arrangements, characterful living areas, and a prime location, nearby Snowdonia National Park.
Pull up on the roadside before entering the stone-fronted abode, firstly reaching the inviting living room, dotted with plush seating, a Smart TV, local artwork, and a lovely woodburning stove, enveloped by original stonework.
Venture into the kitchen/diner, where you can prepare meals with a range of state-of-the-art appliances, before gathering around the dining table, perfect for planning your itinerary.
