Very comfortable stay
The cottage is very comfortable and the equipment very good quality. The dining kitchen is excellent for family meals and the lounge comfortable and warm. The bedrooms have adequate storage space, heaters if needed and most comfortable beds. The main bedroom has a view of the sea.Good shower in the bathroom and a separate toilet which is down 2 steps. Some attractive art work also displayed on walls and shelves.
Lots of books, DVD's, CD's ,a good radio, children's and family games and maps for walking. Also a cupboard full of useful equipment for picnics and walking such as flasks, primus stove kettle, picnic rug etc.
Parking is available for 1 car directly in front of the cottage and it is very quiet with only very occasional traffic passing.There is one convenience store in the village but unfortunately the only pub was closed for refurbishment when we were there.
The garden, although not directly attached to the cottage, is steep but delightful. Unfortunately the weather wasn't warm enough to take advantage of it.
Llwyngwril is conveniently placed for day trips to Towyn, Barmouth( a little run down), Aberdovey, Portmeiron, Harlech and Snowdonia National Park. The railway line in the village is an added bonus when a break from the car and road is required.
The only things I missed from home were oven gloves and a tea cosy!! The file on cafe's , places to visit, rubbish collection etc could do with being updated but we still managed.
A most enjoyable stay, thankyou.
We had a great time at this cosy cottage. As a family of 5 there was plenty of space for us all and a lovely big table for evening meals. The cottage has everything that you need and is in a great location to get out and about. We explored the local hills accessed from the path behind the cottage, which helpfully bring you out close to the local pub!
We would have no hesitation in staying here again and loved the sea views to wake up to in the morning.
Thank you for your review. I’m pleased you had a good holiday and enjoyed your time in Bryn Arfor.
A well placed little cottage for walking and exploring this beautiful area. Well equipped kitchen, everything available for a comfortable home from home break.
Thank you for your review, I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay.
3rd year we’ve stayed. Ideal for our needs. Comfortable and cosy.
Well appointed, comfortable rooms and living space. Wood burner a real necessity in December but it’s lovely.
Thank you for your review, Im pleased your family enjoy seeing the New Year in at Bryn Arfor in front of the wood burner. Best wishes for 2018.
Very cosy and accommodating
We thought the cottage was extrememly well-equipped, with up to date kitchen utensils, etc. We thank you for all those logs, which we enjoyed on the fire each night and the overall feeling of welcome. The maps were brilliant, also books and tapes (though we didn't use those). It was all easy to manage, excellent instructions and it suited us perfectly.
We suggest a washing-up bowl in the sink! It was very handy to be able to just have 3 nights and not necessarily a full week. We loved the area and discovered some amazing places.
Thank you for your comments, I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay.
A wonderful traditional Welsh cottage & beautiful, tranquil garden.
We loved our stay here. A warm & welcoming cottage with a peaceful garden. A great base to explore the surrounding area which exceeded our expectations. Would definitely recommend this cottage. It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay & more besides! We loved the log burner & the huge kitchen table! The property was perfectly proportioned with a great layout. A wonderful peaceful retreat. We also appreciated the tasteful decor & welcome gifts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would highly recommend. Many thanks for the perfect base for our holiday!
