I would give it double if it was possible... Our brother and sister-in-law and children and not forgetting Lucy dog, had booked the house for the Christmas period and invited us and our puppy Nancy to spend some time with them. The location is fabulous, as is the house. Victoria and Sean have covered everything you could possibly think you would need whilst you are staying here. From board games and games room to Keep the children and adults entertained, some serous table football competitions!!! Perfect for dog lovers as across the road from the house is the Barmouth estuary with a path that takes you all the way into Barmouth. The house was all decorated for Christmas with a real tree and all the trimmings. For those of you that are reading this thinking how wonderful it would be to spend Christmas there..... sorry the C family have book it for Christmas 2017 already. If you are reading this thinking you would like to stay here, do not hesitate you will not be disappointed as the title states fantastic in every way!!!!
