"Wow - What a great Place to spend the week!!"

This is a great property to use as your base whilst exploring North Wales. From the minute we got here we had lots to see and do and the best bit of all was knowing that you were going back to Gwel Y Don to spend the evening to chill out and relax.

The accomodation was spot on and the way that the house was laid out was perfect for our family. The best bit of all was the top floor where you could open the balcony window and sit out to watch the boats go by on the Menai Straits whilst having a nice bottle of Red. Perfect and hopefully we will see you again soon....

Thanks for the review and hopefully we will see you back at gwel y don.
