“Brilliant getaway”
Reviewed 24 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Possibly one of the best cottages we've ever stayed at, just got back from a brilliant weekend, the cottage was brilliant and with everything you need already there. The hot tub was a brilliant bonus. The owner Gareth couldn't of been more welcoming and informative about the surrounding area! Will definitely be coming back to the llew stable coch!!!

“A cosy getaway next to the amenities of Bala”
Reviewed 16 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Booked for a weekend away to visit Zip World which is just 40-50 mins drive away and what a lovely little place it was. We arrived and was greeted by Manon and Gareth who were both very friendly and welcoming, briefly showing us around the property and, most importantly, the hot-tub!

Throughout the property has been refurbished to a very high standard with a decent array of kitchen equipment suitable for most needs. The star of the show was the hot-tub though with frequent dips made by all over the two days we were there.

We visited the nearby michelin starred restaurant (Tyddyn Llan) which was very nice- we had the 9 course tasting menu which was very generous in its portion sizes so perhaps the 6 course or the standard 3 courses may well have sufficed! Other visits out were to Portmeirion which made for an interesting visit and to Barmouth beach.

All in all we loved our stay at Stabal Llew Coch and would not hesitate to stay again if we returned to the area. A big thanks to Manon & Gareth for being such lovely hosts!

Thank you for such stunning feedback.
Good to hear that Gareth and Manon made you feel at home. As you can see the cottage has been lovingly restored with huge attention to detail to make your visit special. The hot tub is a great way to relax. There is lots to do and agree Portmeirion is amaxing, a favourite of mine and good news on the Zip Wire as well. The restaurant gets great reviews as well and worth visiting to experience the amazing menus available.
Hope to welcome you back again soon

“Lovely relaxing stay”
Reviewed 29 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We had a fabulous time in Stabel Llew coch. The cottage was pristine and had lots of character with beams, mood lighting, a wonderful hot tub and all the amenities you would need! The location is perfect as it is situated next to pubs, water-sports and there was even a wine/beer tasting close by called 'Stori'. The owners were also absolutely lovely, welcoming and friendly. We would definitely recommend. Thank you for an amazing stay.
