“Spectacular view from this quiet cottage”
Reviewed 11 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

person found this review helpful

We had a good week, which was not dampened by the weather. Within easy reach of Snowdonia for mountains, great coastal beaches, Anglesey, or walk down to Port Meirion.
We fell in love with Port Meirion, and visited twice. Worth noting if you are going on three days, buy a season ticket!
The cottage is somewhat dated all through. In particular I would pick out the twin bedded room which seemed to have older beds and mattresses!
We had problems with the door to the patio/outside path, and it had no clip to hold it open.
These may sound like niggles, but they do bring its star score down.
We were a party of eight, and enjoyed our stay, and yes, I would book again if we all wanted another full family holiday.

Thank you for your review. We haven't had one for a long time as most of our guests are regulars and although I ask them for suggestions they tell me not the change anything. So it's good to have your opinion.

We are really glad you enjoyed yourselves and we would love to have you back. It was good to meet you to loosen the swollen door. Great idea about the door stay, although most of the time we have kinder weather!

We also appreciate you trying to fix the bed in a the twin room. Presumably it was ok on Tuesday when we called or I guess you would have mentioned it. To be honest we would have preferred that you told us immediately so we could have replaced it. It is only 6 years old - Things just aren't made as well these days -that's why we have Ercol, Stag and G plan furniture in the cottage. Once again many thanks for opening my eyes. Diolch.

After many years renting self catering accommodation in North wales, we found the "Artist's Cottage" It is spacious,warm, well equipped and comfortable and in a unique position.It has breathtaking views of the ever changing tidal river Dwyryd,(with an island in the middle) and of the Snowdonia mountains--------Cnicht in full view from the kitchen window!
We are now repeat visitors and cannot contemplate staying anywhere else.

The property was in a really quiet location with superb views over the estuary and countryside but only five minutes drive from the town of Portmadog. Dog friendly, with countryside walks direct from the door down to the beach meant we all had a great holiday, would certainly book this holiday again.

“Lovely, peaceful location”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Nice, well equipped property with plenty of room. Great location with lovely views from all windows and garden. Very peaceful. Perfect location to visit Portmerion which is easily reached by foot via the lane from the gate. Property is very spacious and comfortable.

“The cottage was in a fantastic setting and catered for all ages”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

Our party consisted of a total of 8, ranging in age from 3 months to 91 years (plus chocolate Labrador!) The cottage easily catered for the whole family with plenty of parking for our 3 cars and room for us to have our own space if we needed it! The few steps in the living area were very visibly marked and there were useful handrails in place. As most of the bedrooms were downstairs, and there were also two toilets/bathrooms on this level, the accommodation catered perfectly for the more mature members of the family!
The far reaching views from the cottage were outstanding and we spent most of our time in the conservatory or on the patio. We enjoyed the peaceful setting watching the wildlife, including the bats in the evening, and walking on the various adjacent footpaths, some of which take you down to the estuary. With the Italianate village of Portmerion practically on your doorstep and Porthmadog within easy reach it was a great base to explore the area.
The process of booking the cottage was easy and the owners kindly left us milk, sugar, tea, coffee and delicious bara brith to start our holiday with, which was very welcome after our long journey. We would all love to visit the cottage again in the future!
