The property is one of a small number of cottages let by the owners at the top of a small hill. There is ample off road parking and the view out of the windows and front door are of the hillside and horses etc. The outdoor seating area is situated in the same spot and is great for el fresco dining (we used a disposable bbq)
The equestrian centre is situated at the foot of the hill and offer a number of activities including beach rides or longer rides out to Cregennan Lakes.
The cottage is spacious and has pretty much anything you would require for a short or long term stay. The kitchen is very well equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, cafetiere for us coffee lovers etc. 3 nice sized and decorated rooms ideal for large groups or families, our daughter loved having two single beds in her own room! Overall great facilities for cooking and relaxing.
The property is very well located overlooking Barmouth and the Mawddach Estuary and is just a 2 minute drive from Fairbourne, convenient to do your grocery and toiletry shopping. It is a short drive to the bridge which allows you to cross over the estuary and the road to Barmouth or Bala etc. (70p each crossing) Dolgellau is only a short drive away as is Towyn which has a nice beach and lovely shops + a quaint old school type of cinema.
We had a good stay and have recommended it to a few friends and family based on the locality, prices and amenities. We would recommend a bike ride or walk over the estuary bridge situated at Arthog train station which leads to Barmouth. The Mawddach Trail is also located here and offers a 6 mile ride to a nice pub with beautiful views of the estuary or the full 8 miles into Dolgellau. It's a flat and easy ride designed for any competent and fit-ish riders. We did the full 16 miles and my wife never rides a bike and she managed ok.
