Reviewed 4 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We loved our stay in this lovely house overlooking the estuary with abundant birdlife and fantastic sunrises. The house was comfortable and had absolutely everything we needed and we cooked our Christmas dinner in the flat without any problems at all. The flat is right next to a wonderful steam railway which took us off up into the valleys of Snowdonia on Boxing day for a day of exploration (NB Not much open up in the valleys on Boxing day so go prepared!).

The house is only a couple of miles from Portmeirion Village so you get the best of both worlds - reasonably priced accommodation with easy access to everything. We would definitely recommend this house to our friends and would stay again next time we are up that way.

Management response:

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! Really pleased you loved the house and had a great time.
