                                                                                                      4 of 5

Lovely patio out the back but weather unfortunately not warm enough to use it much! Jenny hugely helpful when we had a concern (couldn't get in door when we arrived!) or a need (Dyson vacuum cleaner locked in linen room). She was very quick to sort us out and I feel we have become quite good 'texting friends'! If we ever revisit Porthmadog we will definitely stay here again.
