The North Wales region
A mecca for ramblers, and surfers - often tempted here depending on the swell. Owing to its situation on the west coast of North Wales, the property is within easy reach of numerous attractions which include Portmeirion, the unusual private Italianate village. Created by an eccentric architect, the village comprises a collection of endangered buildings from Britain and abroad, designed around a Mediterranean piazza and including a campanile and pantheon. A further place of interest for all the family to enjoy is the Corris Craft Centre near Machynlleth, where local items are produced and sold (leather goods, jewellery, turned wood, candles) and where the legends of King Arthur are brought to life with sound and lighting effects as an underground boat transports visitors magically through a waterfall and deep into the spectacular caverns under the Braichgoch mountain. Together with the Y Crochan Restaurant serving a range of Welsh food, this makes for a memorable day out. Founded in 1974, another notable attraction is the Centre for Alternative Technology, which, once a derelict slate quarry, has now become almost an entirely self-sufficient community generating 80% of its own power from sun, wind and water, and its houses showcase energy-saving ideas. Celtica (the centre for all things Celtic), and Harlech Castle are other places to visit, not to mention the famous Cadir Idris mountain.
Locally there are train rides along the seafront, an abundance of amusement arcades, donkey rides, bouncy castle and trampolines on the beach, and a fun fair. Alternatively, strolls can be enjoyed along the promenade towards the harbour where locally caught fish are prepared and put on sale. Numerous bars, cafés, shops and restaurants are nearby and a nightclub for letting your hair down.

"Fine property with stunning views but shame about the bedding...."
A family group with young children, we stayed in this lovely large property overlooking Barmouth. Although the approach from town was steep it proved not to be a problem and meant we could leave our car on site and not worry about parking.
We had very poor weather and were glad of the well-equipped, spacious house which was very comfortable.
Just a couple of gripes...The BBQ was overgrown with ivy and all rusted up. We did sort it out and used it but it would have been nice to find it in working order. There were no parasols as advertised.
The main complaint was the fact that we had to take bedding. There's enough to carry on a self-catering holiday without another suitcase full of sheets etc. At this price and standard it should be a minimum requirement. The local tourist information would not recommend this property because of this.
I must say the owners were very helpful before I booked. My e-mails were responded to very quickly and information was sent as requested.

"Wow, That was my first response on seeing the house on arrival and once again when opening the front door."
We had the most wonderful week even though the weather wasn't the best. The views were magnificent, it was a job to tear yourself away. The house seemed quite a way from the town but in reality it was only a few minutes walk and you were right in the centre of Barmouth.The walk back up may not be for everyone as it is quite steep but my Mum who is 85 managed it ( slowly, but still took less than 15 mins) and the more often you did it the easier it became. Deronda itself is wonderful, the rooms sizes were brilliant we had 6 adults and 1 child in our party, there was plenty of room and we didn't get under each others feet. The house was fully equipped and as we had a 3 year old with us the pushchair, baby moniter and stairgates were a blessing as it meant we did not have to take everything with us.
This was a special holiday for my husband and myself as we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and we wanted our whole family with us and we couldn't have chosen a better house.
None of us wanted to leave and if we ever to decide to all holiday together again we would not hesitate to go back to Deronda.
