The house itself is converted to to a very high standard, and has a nicely quirky layout and feel. It is well-equipped and is situated in the heart of a beautiful valley. We are not bikers or ramblers, but there was very good local information provided in the house on a wide variety of walks/paths. Sites we visited included Barmouth, Harlech, Port Merion, Bodnant Gardens, Conwy and Llandudno, and all were easily do-able in a short car ride from the house. Would definitely return.

Beautiful Lodge with amazing accommodation, lovely decor and garden.The location was very good for visiting many parts ofNorth Wales.
