What a treat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely cottage for 4 days with our two children and two dogs. The owners were extremely friendly and accommodating to our needs, they offered us great advice about the local area with regard to our dogs and the cottage was just perfect for us. The beds were super comfy and everything that we could possibly need was available. Bearing in mind it was a house that lets dogs in, it was extremely clean and so beautifully decorated. It felt like a treat! The wood burner in the lounge gave a cosy feel in the evenings but the cottage on the whole was well heated throughout which we were definitely grateful for in a bitterly cold February visit. There was lots of exciting places to visit in the area although at this time of year, it is worth checking things are open as a few places are closed for winter.

We had such a wonderful visit and hope to return again in the future.

Lovely and well equipped property in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my girlfriend stayed at this cottage for 3 nights and had a brilliant time. The cottage has everything you need, is very spacious, and is in a stunning location. You step out of the cottage, look left and Harlech Castle is right there! We had a brilliant time and we have already decided we will be coming back at some point in the future.

Fantastic property in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was beautifully furnished & kept. Beds were very comfy. There was everything you could possibly need. It really was a home from home. Great base to explore some of the nicest parts of north wales from or to just wander down to Harlech beach and chill.

lovely cottage in heart of Harlech

  • 4 of 5

lovely cottage in heart of Harlech with views of castle and sea from garden. log burner kept us lovely and warm in evenings . very well maintained and well furnished cottage . beds very comfy. all slept sound very well stocked with utensils etc ... lovely long walks on Harlech beach and just up coastal road did lovely long walk thru sand dunes to shell island and back along the beach. Harlech itself will keep you fit walking down to beach as good climb back up but the views all around of sea and hills amazing. my dog loved his stay too .. only reason not given 5 stars was as was winter and very cold weather when there the cottage needed heating, electric heaters are great but eat the monies put on meter at start of break - £20 . so was spending part of break turning unnecessary heaters off but by end of break found we had £8 still but had spent break with some areas of cottage cool in temperature. maybe I fretted more than needed to but first eve found £6 was eaten quickly. we used log burner each eve and used this to help heat cottage too. the log burner was great ... couldnt get freezer to work but may have been us .. otherwise overall lovely cottage and easily seen well maintained and loved by its owners ..

Owner's Response: Hi Sarah Thanks for your review. Just to confirm that our pay as you go electric meter has been changed this week to direct debit (tried to change last year but company let us down), so no more top up required. We’re also waiting on a quote to have central heating put in but this will happen Sept 2018 as it won’t be need until the Winter season. Glad you liked everything else. Best wishes Mark & Amanda

Cosy home from home with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has been tastefully decorated inside. The views from the front bedroom over Snowdonia are lovely. Coming in early January, we enjoyed having the log burner to keep us cosy in the evenings. We felt the cottage was like a home from home for us and our two little ones. Would recommend a trip round the castle, the lovely castle cafe (again marvellous views) and the Blue Lion cafe for homemade soup and cakes.

Car: recommended

Harlech sports centre allows for many of these activities such as tennis, climbing wall, swimming etc, but if you prefer the outdoors then there are plenty of local places which cater for all of the sports and adventure activities.
