Lots of bubbles to soak away your day in the spa type bathrooms - then wrap yourself up in one of the gloriously soft cotton towels.

Each review that has been posted about this fantastic house and location gives it 5 stars..
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!!!!
Having already stayed here in May 2015 we were all itching to get back. As a family of 5 with 3 children under 8 and a dog this house is perfect in every way. Victoria and Sean are the perfect hosts and so welcoming. We have never been away from home at Christmas and Victoria had decorated the house beautifully with a real tree and a fantastic Christmas hamper full of local goodies and mulled wine!
The location is perfect and you can walk along the eustuary to Barmouth and feed the ponies polos on the way or walk to the pub and have a drink the other.
There is more than enough space and we never felt over crowded in the house even when guests came to stay for a few days.
The games/ utility room is a great space to put muddy boots and smelly dogs! Victoria provides lots of towels to use for wet dogs and the drying cabinet is a god send for wet coats and boots.
There are more than enough towels supplied and the washing machine and dryer were put into good use during our stay!
I am not ashamed to say that I cried as we drove away with the children waving at Victoria as the whole trip was full of fresh air, fun and family time. We love it so much at the house we have rebooked to stay Christmas 2017 and are already planning our walks. The kids are super excited to see Victoria and Sean again, although we will probably visit before then as a year away is too long.
There are lots of leaflets with walking routes in the house and information about other trips that are near by. If you visit Dolgellau you must visit Megs and eat cake! She has now become a great friend and I have never been to a cafe so relaxed with doorstop size homemade cake! Meg is fantastic with the children and dogs are also welcome which is great.
The only thing I would suggest that you bring is a sense of adventure as you cannot come to this location and not spend your whole trip exploring the beautiful area and meeting the friendly people.
The only negative is that we had to leave but we will be back for many years to come.
If you book this beautiful house we hope that you make as many special family memories as we did
We booked the cottage for a group of 9 girls for a long weekend away at the end of September.
Victoria provided fantastic service before we even arrived - the welcome guide sent to us was extremely helpful and Victoria could not do enough to make sure our stay was perfect.
The photos do not do justice to the cottage - it definitely had the wow factor when we arrived! The floating wall is a lovely touch and the open plan design meant it was plenty big enough for all of us. The cottage was spotlessly clean with lots of thoughtful extras (the welcome hamper was a lovely touch)!
The location was stunning and although our planned zipwire at Zipworld was cancelled due to high winds, we still had plenty to see and loved curling up in front of the cosy wood fire.
We loved our time in Snowdonia and are already planning a return visit! Would highly recommend to anyone considering a trip to Wales.
Victoria and Sean thanks for a great place to stay and we had a brilliant break
Came and stayed with friends over a long weekend and had a fantastic time. The house is gorgeous, Victoria is incredibly welcoming and a great host. Not forgetting Fintan, who is also a delight! The house is really well situated for the beach, woods AND hills. There are some gentle and picturesque walks from the house and Cadair Idris (awesome on a clear day) is in striking distance. There is also wild swimming nearby. We were blessed with the weather but I'd be keen to come back even if it had rained all weekend.
very impressed with almost everything, the natural setting, location, the beautiful, spotless and high standard accommodation. Victoria and Sean very friendly and helpful. Would definitely be back and recommend it to our friends and family.
