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!

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
