  • "Tastefully and beautifully decorated restored cottage which was pristine."

    Close to all facilities in Porthmadog and pubs/restaurants only a few steps away. Many places of interest and lovely sandy beaches nearby.

  • "Delightful cottage in a great location for exploring the area."

    The cottage was comfortable and had everything we needed. Lovely walks from Tremadog and good base for Beddgelert, Porthmadog and the Llyn Peninsula. Cottage on main road through the village so some traffic noise but didn’t really bother us. Communication with owners was great. Will visit again in the future. Wasn’t sure if it was 9 or 10am checkout as info sent said 9am but Sykes info 10am.

  • "We had some difficulty getting the boiler to work to bring the heating on."

    I would have appreciated a quick written guide left, say on the table.

    I am very sorry to hear you struggled with the heating. This is, in fact, a brand new boiler which is relatively simple to use. I think you may have missed the information sent out to you? We do email guests with how to operate everything in the house a week to prior to arrival. (The hard copy of our property information was removed due to Covid Restrictions. This will be replaced in December). The information pack provides comprehensive information about the local area including restaurants, pubs and days out as well as full instructions for all appliances in the house. We do also add in our own personal contact numbers and are happy to assist guests in any way we can. I do hope you enjoyed all other aspects of Gwynle and will consider staying with us again in the future? Property Owner

  • "Well appointed cottage with very helpful owner quickly responding to questions."

    Ideal location both for supplies in village and for exploring the mountains, heritage railways as well as Portmerion. Great fish and chips from the village and lovely meals had from the restaurant, Y sgwar, and The Golden Fleece. Need to book well ahead for restaurant, lucky to make a booking due to cancellation.

  • "Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location for Mount Snowdon and the coastline for Porthmadog, Portmeirion and Harlech Castle."

    The cottage was near perfect for all our needs and was very clean and modern, in a traditional and cosy way. The only negative comment, the cottage was on a busy road, traffic was constant throughout the day. We would definitely stay here again.

  • "A super stay in this great cottage ."

    Gwynle had everything we needed and more . A Perfect location for our walking. The cottage was warm cosy and very well equipped. The utility area was so useful when coming home with wet dogs and walking gear ! The beds were very comfy . We did sit out on the terrace which was very nice to do but the steps climb is not for the faint hearted . All in all we would highly recommend Gwynle.

  • "Our family loved our stay at Gwynle!"

    The cottage is tastefully finished and to a high standard with all the modern features you would expect. Being a cottage built in the 1800s, we were surprised with how spacious it was and at no point did it feel cramped with a family of 4 and we even entertained a couple of extra guests for our evening dinner. Having the log burner was great to warm us up after coming in from the (sometimes) rainy Welsh weather and there was a dehumidifier in the utility room which helped quickly dry our clothes and towels after they’d been in the washer dryer. The town of Tremadog is very friendly with 2 excellent pubs, a fantastic restaurant along with a convenience shop and chip shop, all less than a couple of minutes walk from the cottage. Plenty of local walks into the hills with some lovely waterfalls nearby and a brisk walk could get you into Portmadog in less than 30 mins. With regards to covid, all the proper precautions have been taken with the cottage having been cleaned and sanitised to a very high standard. The check in time of 5pm and check out by 9am felt a little inconvenient but it shows a great deal of time is spent cleaning and prepping for guests and it’s very much a case of better safe than sorry! We’d definitely stay here again! James & Family

  • "The cottage was stunningly decorated, yet still comfortable and cosy, and was fully equipped."

    Everything we needed was supplied and the kitchen in particular was fitted out to a very high standard. We also loved hte log burner and the deep bath, after long walks. It was located in a lovely village with all the amenities and places to visit only a short distance away. We had a wonderful stay and didn't want to leave. The only downside was that the cottage was not fully dog friendly, despite being advertised as so. The downstairs floors were very slippery and our dogs immediately slipped over the second we walked inside from the wet street on arrival. We wanted to use the utility area to clean up the dogs after a walk but due to the floor in that room being the most slippery and also having a number of steps, we kept them out of it and entered the property through the front. Also, the patio area was not at all accessible to the dogs due to the extremely steep and slippery stone steps leading up to it. This made it a little more difficult first thing in the morning due to not having an outside space for them. This just needs making more clear in the information. Other than these points, it was a perfect getaway, and I really would recommend the cottage to others, and stay there again.

  • "Cottage absolutely delightful; cosy and warm, and spotlessly clean."

    Whilst I tend not to cook much when on holiday, I could not resist using the wonderful, newly fitted kitchen which was so well equipped. Really enjoyed having a good soak in the fabulous bath at the end of the day. Unfortunately our old dog was not able to make use of the garden as the steps were too much for her, but having the lovely woods near by helped. Whilst we live 25 miles south of Aberystwyth we were blown away with the landscape around here and will come again to visit the area, especially the village of Beddgelert. I would seriously consider making use of this cottage again. Some minor suggestions; bigger door mats at the front and back and somewhere to contain our dirty boots. Blankets made available for the beds in the colder months.

  • "Cottage was great, clean, comfortable well decorated and had everything in it you could need."

    Only slight downfall was the back outside steps, they were really steep and slippy & the bottom light wasn't very strong, my larger dog had a real problem coordinator his big feet. In saying that though, the cottage is excellent and in a really nice place.

  • "The cottage was lovely had everything and more than you needed."

    Very clean and modern yet still retaining some traditional features. Extreme care is needed accessing the patio especially for excited dogs it can be very slippy - we opted to walk the dogs outside first thing in the morning and last thing at night . There are some lovely walks around the area - perfect base to explore Wales.

  • "The cottage was amazing."

    It contained everything you could want in a holiday home. From a beautiful interior that was finished very tastefully, to all the thoughtful things left in the house e.g. tea, milk, a cake and useful things like first aid equipment and washing tablets for the machine. They have thought of everything. My only fault is not of the cottage but the website advert. When you say dogs are welcome - make it extremely clear that they are welcome but not to be left in the house on their own. We didn’t see this until after booking. Perhaps have some local dog sitters numbers available to combat this issue. We have too elderly dogs who really like to sleep a lot and can’t cope being out all day being active.

  • "We recently enjoyed a 5 night stay at Gwynle, which is situated in a nice village with a great restaurant in the village square."

    The accommodation was spotless - everything was brand new and looked untouched. The decor is modern but in keeping with the properties character. The kitchen was very well equipped and included quality appliances. The bedrooms were comfortable with some nice original features. I was initially unsure about the location as I thought parking might be an issue for our 2 big cars but we never failed to get parked close to the property. I would typically stay in more isolated cottages but I'd definitely like to return here - in fact I looked to stay again next week but it's booked up. The owner, Fiona, was fantastic!

  • "This is a real gem: A characterful terraced cottage in a location which is ideal for touring North West Wales (and practicing speaking Welsh)."

    The house is recently and very tastefully refurbished with tiled flooring downstairs a nice slate work surface in the kitchen. There is a bath (we preferred) as well as a shower and a wood burner, which is easy to use and even had firelighters and kindling provided (a very thoughtful touch). The village has two pubs, a highly regarded restaurant (Y Sgwar) and a shop. The garden is really just a small terrace which is fine for enjoying a glass of wine but there is a very accessible community woodland only a hundred yards down the road, which is perfect for exercising dogs. We would definitely recommend this cottage. PS: and thank you for the complimentary bara brith (fruit cake). Diolch yn fawr.
