Commanding spectacular views over Cardigan Bay, these three holiday properties enjoy an elevated position nestled beside a mountain stream, accessed by a steep shared drive. Woodland Roost (ref WN72) is a detached hideaway located within a woodland garden and Cedar Rest (ref WN82) and Coastal Retreat (ref 28519) are delightful wings of the owners’ 16th-century hillside farmhouse. They all overlook the owners’ field, and are only a mile away from the town of Barmouth, with its choice of shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants. A steep walk across the road takes you to the promenade and a beautiful sandy beach. Close by are all the amenities of the Snowdonia National Park, Harlech with its castle and golf course, Portmeirion, and steam trains run from Porthmadog. They are secluded but not isolated, with horse riding, fishing and mountain bike centres within an easy drive. Shops, pubs and restaurants 1 mile.

Cedar Rest, Barmouth July 2017
A very comfortable 1 bed property and completely as described. The owner made sure I knew where everything was and in fact was not there much during my stay but let me know that there were contacts if required but was unobtrusive when she was there.
Great location just outside Barmouth - be aware that the driveway from the main road to the properties is very steep as described, and the further slope to the flat parking area in front of Cedar Rest is also steep with a tight turn and is shared with the Woodland property which would make reversing out very difficult if that property is also occupied. It wasn't an issue for me as the other property was only occupied for 1 week of my 3 week stay but I parked at the bottom of the slope which was more convenient.
The views from the outdoor sitting area are stunning and on a sunny day it's a great place to relax and enjoy the views.
Barmouth itself has everything that you'd need for everyday items, I didn't need to find a larger supermarket for food shopping and the petrol station is pretty close by between Llanbedr and Llanaber. There are some excellent fish restaurants in the town if you don't want to do your own cooking everyday and "Norbar" a few minutes north of Barmouth is another good eatery if a tad expensive in my opinion but very popular specially with those using campsites in the area
The North coast is easily accessible and a visit to Conwy is recommended as is a trip on the Welsh Highland Railway to Carnarvon. The cottage has a large number of leaflets on places to visit which was very useful, not knowing the area at all.
Definitely a property I would return to and recommend
