The combination of a lovely house, full of homely comforts and more, set in an amazing location means this stay has to be one of our best. Discovering the Blue Lake just around the corner, the summit of Cader Idris a little further away, the train and ferry to beautiful Barmouth, and the vast stretch of sandy beach at Fairbourne were just some of the highlights. To cap it all, each evening can be spent reliving the day whilst soaking in the hot tub. Wonderful!

Hendy is a beautiful little cottage with absolutely stunning views. We had a great couple of days in this amazing location and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Ingrid made it so welcoming and everywhere was immaculate. The bottle of wine was a lovely touch too. Thank you so much! x
