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!
