  • "A wonderful place to stay."

    Tucked up out of the way behind the hill of black rock sands with views you can only dream of. We were lucky as our visit was during the spring so also had the entertainment of the new lambs in our view. The property is as described-on a courtyard with 2 other rental properties. The games room is fully stocked of books and dvds, should the weather turn (!). Showers are great-good heat and power and there are plenty of cutlery/plates/glasses for a family of four. Beds are comfortable, but I do warn the the double bed is very high. I’m 5’8 and my feet dangled when sitting on the edge of the bed.

  • "An absolute gem, In fact the pictures didn't do the cottage justice and we have already rebooked."

    The walk to the beach was twenty minutes away and the drive into town ten minutes in the other direction, but you felt completely away from it all. Sitting in the conservatory surrounded by fields and sheep made you feel like you were outside but with a real fire and underfloor heating it was stunning and so relaxing!!! The cottage had everything you could possibly need and was spotlessly clean we cant wait to go back.

  • "Great location , quiet out the way with great views."

    House was warm and welcoming with all that you need to keep the family entertained .The only suggestions I could give to improve the stay would be some kind of blinds or screen to the sides of the gigantic conservatory for a bit more privacy from the walkers and passing cars.Secondly an issue raised with a previous holiday review ,for the need to put some kind of fencing along the road edge of the garden.To stop the dogs jumping down.But these are just improvements that could be made to improve on what was a great relaxing break with a massive beach down the road .The property and games room meet all our expectations with a great selection of DVD's to chill out in the evenings with or a good book to loose your self in.I would not hesitate on rebooking this lovely property In a great location .

  • "Absolutely fabulous!"

    Extremely well equipped property with stunning views in a quiet rural location. Ideally located for touring the area with Snowdonia within easy reach. The spacious open-plan conservatory and living/dining room was really warm and cosy thanks to the underfloor heating and log burning stove.

    We've stayed at the barn twice and now the farmhouse they are both part of the same property group both are very high standard the one thing I would say is that if you're talking a dog or young child please be aware that the garden of the farmhouse is not surcure as one edge leads directly onto a road although there is a 4 feet drop to it other than that 5 stars

  • "We’ve stayed in many “cottages” all over the UK and the Farmhouse at Garth Morthin is undoubtedly up there as one of the best."

    We had contact with the owner prior to and during our stay to ensure everything was to our expectations. The location is lovely and so quiet, but although isolated and very private, it’s close to local towns and amenities. We had a wonderful time and will definitely look at returning as soon as we can. The accommodation is superb and very specious and we were very pleased.

  • "The position of this property is absolutely perfect!"

    The views through the glass walls are stunning and you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, yet you are only 5 minutes away from every possible amenity in Porthmadog. The perfect base to explore coast and mountains. The house is packed with traditional character but has been modernised to make life as easy as possible. With the exception of the kitchen, every room is spacious and contains plenty of storage. The kitchen is very narrow, preventing more than one person from being involved in the cooking, but it does contain everything you could need, including modern oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, a large fridge/freezer, and plenty of cutlery, crockery and utensils. The garden has wonderful panoramic views with a spacious patio, and is positioned for maximum privacy - you are not overlooked at all by the other two properties on the grounds. There were two negatives for us: Firstly, the creaky floorboards upstairs. This sounds minor, but the loudness of the creak with every step you take in both bedrooms and the landing never fails to wake the entire household. Not great if people go to bed at different times or need to visit the bathroom in the night. Secondly, the property would benefit from a few fans - the internal temperature was over 30 degrees Celsius for the majority of time we were there. This meant we had to keep the glass doors constantly open, and this allowed the flies, wasps, butterflies, bees, and ever dragonflies in. I am not exaggerating when I say that we swept up more than 50 dead winged creatures every day. The property was absolutely spotless on arrival, but it soon lost its clean feeling with the onslaught of so many bugs - no food could be left uncovered for even a few minutes. Nothing some decent fans couldn't fix. Overall, the positives definitely outweigh the negatives and we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.

  • "Beautifully presented Garth Morthin Farmhouse is perfectly positioned in a peaceful little valley above Black Rock Sands."

    Stay put and relax on the sunny terrace or enjoy the walk down to the sea. Its about the same distance from Criccieth and Porthmadog (those wishing to have lots of kit on the beach can take the car onto the sands). If you want lovely beaches without cars head to Morfa Buchan or Borth y Gest and wander along the coastal path until you find your favourite spot. Or drive west to Abersoch. The mountain goats are just a short drive to Beddgelert and the splendours of Snowdonia.

  • "The farmhouse is perfectly located for exploring north Wales."

    Five minutes from Porthmadog and two minutes from the beach, you couldn’t ask for better. The accommodation is amazing. Posh home comfort. And four legged friends are made welcome. We couldn’t of asked for more. ***** during this uncertain time we found that the owners had gone above and beyond to reassure and keep visitors safe. Thank you for all the hard work. *******

  • "We were absolutely thrilled with the cottage, everything was perfect, great location, and the facilities were brilliant."

    The only thing that may have help would have been a welcome booklet for the the faculties' and information about the local area would have been useful, however this did not hinder our experience, just a recommendation for the owner for their future guests. Nothing more I can say other than we had a great stay and will be recommending.

    We loved: the wonderful views; the spacious living room, conservatory and garden; the well equipped kitchen; the comfortable bedrooms; and sense of home away from home. We felt very relaxed!
