About Mr and Mrs Kristian
Carol & Martin Kristian have a long association with this spectacular part of Wales, and love it. Carol has spent holidays in Tywyn since the age of 3 and her parents retired here in the 80's, creating a home from home for all the family. Martin,who is Australian, of Latvian parents, was soon introduced to the area by Carol and immediately fell in love with it. We live in Herfordshire but visit our cottages at least once a month. Martin is recently retired from his business and Carol still runs a childrens theatre school. We love nature and are very lucky to have a like minded wonderful team of local people on hand to ensure your stay is pleasant. We enjoy meeting our guests whenever possible and sharing our corner of heaven with you.
Mr and Mrs Kristian purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Mr and Mrs Kristian chose Tywyn
The cottages are full of atmosphere and reminders of bygone days as a working farm. This area is breath taking and also very diverse. There are beaches, forests, lakes, waterfalls, mountains all offering different experiences to suit all weather and all occasions. Simply heaven!
What makes this Cottage unique
Although Geufron is very close to Tywyn and all the amenities, in fact just a couple of minutes by car, it is away from traffic and people and surrounded by fields with magnificent views. The 5 cottages do not impact on each other at all but are not remote. They are walking distance from the village pub The Peniarth Arms which serves good food.

Was really lovely and the location was perfect
Evrything was fine with good facilities. Would have liked a lot more information about walking about which there are plenty of options. Info on buses, trains, resturaunts etc would be useful, otherwise great. Thank you.
Christmas decorations appreciated. Directions could have been better from the route we came. Had to go to the local pub to get advice as it was dark upon arrival. The views from the cottage were fantastic especially the little train through the valley. Cooked Christmas dinner without a problem. The log burner was brilliant, however, would have appreciated the previous occupants having cleaned it out as we did for the next folks. Manager sorted a TV problem out on Christmas Day which was appreciated. Didn’t go far as the location and accommodation was what we dreamed of. Even the sheep stood up on our departure and baa’d their farewells. Would love to return.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for coming to Geufron Holiday Cottages.
Beautiful cottage in great location
We had a brilliant week staying at this cottage and was lucky to have lovely weather too. This meant we could make use of the outside pool. The cottage is well equipped and very cosy. The views are breathtaking!! Lots of great places to visit locally too.
Would definitely return.
Thank you for your lovely review . We are always so happy to hear of guests having a wonderful relaxing holiday in this unspoilt interesting and beautiful area. No traffic jams or parking difficulties either. A real bonus these days.
We look forward to seeing you again soon.

A nice cottage set in a beautiful part of Wales
The cottage is very pleasant and easy to find. Everything we expected was provided for us. Make sure you request towels though as apparently they are not provided automatically. The cottage was mostly very clean, sofas and bed very comfortable. The bed is quite small though - it's smaller than a double which made for some awkward sleeping positions! The pool was gorgeous although it was looking a bit murky by the end of the week. Beautiful walks around here although do your own research before you come as there is surprisingly little information about the area in the cottage and the information leaflets in the Information shed are 3 years out of date. Overall a nice place to stay in a beautiful area.
Thank you Emma so glad you found everything satisfactory and enjoyed your stay. Must correct you on the bed size which is a standard 4ft 6ins double.
Sorry you did not note the towel information on the description but glad we were able to quickly supply them on request.
We look forward to seeing you again. This magnificent area gets into your soul.

Week in Geafron cottage.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The well-equiped cottage was cosy and comfortable. The views were wonderful and it was very quiet and peaceful as only people (and our dog) there. Would happily go again and consider our family having the farmhouse and us peace and quiet in the cottage!
Only slight problem was that our tap water turned brown on the Wednesday evening which was disconcerting even though the helpful caretaker assured us it was because the water was from a spring and the filter had been cleaned. Still rather worrying though so we did buy our drinking water for our remaining stay.
Thank you Roy so glad you enjoyed the cottage and outstanding views . We are sure the filter will enjoy the 4 bedroom Farmhouse next door.
We look forward to seeing you again soon.

We had already stayed in one of the other properties,but we fell in love with The cottage.It was perfect for the very cold but sunny weather.There are nearby walks then back to a warm,cosy cottage with the fun of a log burner too!We cooked in every evening,and the kitchen is well equipped.
We never tired of the view over the valley from so high up,and absolutely love the quiet,the lack of traffic noise being replaced by the toot of the little Talyllyn steam train!
We can't wait to go again!
Thank you for returning and your appreciation of the cottage and it's views. So glad that you found the kitchen properly equipped for cooking.
We look forward to seeing you again.
