It's obvious from the moment you walk in that she has a good understanding of what most people would expect in a holiday rental. The house is traditional and beautifully furnished with good quality white goods and clear and easy to understand instructions on how to use everything.We felt immediately at home. The location is ideal for walking from the house to explore the surrounding area as well as for getting in the car and discovering some of the great places on the Lleyn peninsula. We had a most enjoyable week there.
