We returned to stay here after a stay in September 2016 when our daughter held her wedding reception here. We wanted to come back as we were so busy we didn't get chance to look around the area and view the beautiful Afon Mawddach. Sarah and John are great hosts, very helpful with a lot of local knowledge. Last time...

Lovely place although the rooms were very old fashioned. We had been camping with them before and it was excellent but this time as the season was a bit colder the customer service was half-hearted. As there were only a couple of rooms filled we expected to be taken care of but that wasn't the case. There were little labels...

Thanks for your feedback. We are always pleased to see guests returning and you were given our repeat booking discount rate. You were welcomed with the offer of tea and coffee which you declined, preferring to take a complimentary drink to your room. Although we do not serve evening meals, you were offered Welsh cheeses, chutney and biscuits for your...

We stayed here after reading glowing reviews online, and we weren't disappointed. The b&b is sat in a stunning location with views down to the estuary below, and with direct access from the road. The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful, and can't do enough to help you with anything, from info on local attractions to recommendations on where to...

Particularly lovely spot to stay offering b&b yurts and camping. Great breakfast too. Had tea and Welsh scones on arrival which was so great after such a long journey. Friend is wheelchair bound for which they have a special room too.

We stayed in Pine Cottage for a week at the end of September, we took the dog and walked in the mountains everyday, the cottage was wonderful to come home to. It was always warm and cosy but still felt spacious. Spotlessly clean, comfortable furniture, kitchen with all working mod cons! Nice to also have a big telly and all...

We stayed at The Slate Shed with friends to celebrate someone's birthday. We did not stay in the B&B itself, but in the adjoining cottage. We did enjoy the wonderful breakfast on Sunday morning before returning to Belgium. Both Tyr Adar, the cottage where we stayed, and the Small Barn are spacious cottages that could easily lodge a family of...

We recently had a long weekend staying in the large yurt at Graig Wen & we had a really lovely time. From the moment we arrived, everyone at Graig Wen was welcoming & friendly. We were really impressed with how well the yurt was kitted out with furniture & kitchen equipment. And the fire kept the yurt nice and cosy...

The area is beautiful with much more to see and do than we had expected, with a full week of good weather which really made our holiday. On a negative note, as we pointed out to John when he asked if everything was ok, there is an issue with the pressure delivery to the hot & cold water to the...

Thanks for the feedback. We added a bath to Ty'r Adar cottage in response to customer feedback but it does run quite slowly due to low pressure from our natural spring. We tried adding a pump but guests found this a little noisy. Over the quieter winter season, we will be redecorating the kitchen and hope to improve the water...

I stayed here at Graig Wen for three nights last year and was delighted at the atmosphere and ambience of the site. The site is well organised, though small which gives it a nicer, more cosy feel. I have a small campervan so booked a hardcore pitch with electric hookup, and there are only about 10 (1 think) available so...
