“Perfect country cottage, ideal for families and pet owners”
Reviewed 24 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

A warm friendly welcome greeted us at Bodfan, with complementary refreshments for both us, and the dogs. The large cottage is warm, well equipped and ideal for families and people holidaying with dogs.

We stayed for my husband’s birthday weekend, so I used the services of Gillian’s friend Denise, to cook us a meal on the first night. Wow, it was amazing, even included au devours and chocolate spoons for the after dinner coffee AND homemade treats for our dogs. We were all truly spoilt. I would highly recommend her services if you’re staying at Bodfan for any length of time.

The paddock at the front of the cottage is fantastic for the dogs to run around and burn some energy, and the sunrises from this aspect of the house in the morning are stunning.

I would highly recommend Bodfan for a short or long stay as it has everything you need for a holiday away, fantastic views and Gillian is the most friendliest and helpful host. We will definitely be returning this year.

“Perfect home for families or friends”
Reviewed 2 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We stayed at Bodfan over the new year. The house suited us perfectly! Two families with 4 children aged between 8 and 15. Not to forget 2 dogs. The children loved exploring the gardens and making use of all rooms in the house. The younger boys spent many hours playing hide and seek, loving the use of two staircases and masses of room and lots of hiding places. It was spy kids heaven! the children used the wide selection of games in the game room.

Bodfan has a feel of a well loved family home, which is now a great holiday rental. Perfect for those wanting a rustic country getaway, spacious yet with a cosy feel. Very child and dog friendly. The house has everything we needed for a relaxing break.

The owner Gillian greeted us with generous hospitality and helped with suggestions for local sights and places to stay. Great way to start 2017.

“Incredible ”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Home from a wonderful week in Bodfan. Our three large dogs loved all the indoor and outdoor space that this house provided.
At first I was hesitant to book this house as it wasn't as modern as we are used to, however the photos don't give it justice and there is absolutely everything you need and more here.
I wish we had booked for longer as we didn't want to leave the beautiful house, beaches, mountains and countryside.
Thank you for everything Gillian. Ps your dog is gorgeous!
