“Great NYE break”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2018

We stayed to celebrate our anniversary over NYE. The barn is really well converted with stunning views over the valley and mountains. Weather wasn’t on our side so walking was kept to a minimum but we were happy to cozy up with the log burner and red wine. Gary was available for anything we needed and kindly invited us to their New Years fireworks. Found the approach and parking a little precarious but amazing value for money.

“Superb barn conversion”

Reviewed 2 Apr 2017

Really well done conversion in beautiful situation. The views from cottage where excellent. The barn conversion was to a high standard, underfloor heating was a bonus. The area is fantastic, over looking the Dovey river and short distances to nearby market towns and the sea.

“Fantastic Location”

Reviewed 27 Feb 2017

This beautiful little cottage is situated in a fantastic location for access to Coed y Brenin, Dolgellau and even Barmouth. The cottage itself was very clean and welcoming and offered fantastic views across the Welsh countryside. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. We visited during wet and stormy conditions and found the cottage nice and warm, with plenty of logs for the fire to take the nip out of the night. The access driveway was quite steep and narrow but manageable. We will definitely be returning here, hopefully with some nicer weather!

“Fantastic cottage”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2017

Had a wonderful time. Had 4 children with us who very much enjoyed wondering the land. Modern cottage but kept it's rustic charm. Had stunning views of the valley. Would definitely visit again.

“Gorgeous base to explore from!”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2015

My partner and I visit west Wales regularly for it's amazing views, mountain biking, and walking. This was our first time staying at Craig Y Gronfa cottage, and I couldn't recommend it enough. We loved it! The cottage was immaculate, well decorated, and just a beautiful space to stay in! Modern feeling but with beautiful original features, such as the old beams in the master suite. The views from every window are stunning! Gary had put the heating on for our arrival, so it was warm and cosy when we got there. Beautiful little wood stove in the living room, hope to make use of that on our next stay! The cottage was well kitted out, and we had everything we needed! It's the perfect location to go off and explore from! Only a ten minute drive to the beautiful town of Machynlleth, or fifteen minute drive in the opposite direction to Dolgellau. Easy distance to the beach- we went to Aberdyfi for the ice cream shop, but Ynyslas is equally if not more stunning! And only a twenty minute drive to Cadair Idris, one of my favourite mountain walks in Wales! Gary was a fantastic host! He even gave us a big bowl of apples from his orchard! Highly recommend spending a weekend here!

“Lovely stay”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2015

My fiance and I and our two small boys stayed here for a week in July and we couldn't recommend it enough! The barn was decorated to a very high standard and w everything was clean. Our boys loved playing in the garden and exploring the stream at the bottom of the garden, and it was lovely to be able to sit in the yard at dinner time enjoying the amazing views! This was our first family holiday away and it was a brilliant one! Thank you, Debbie,Mark, Jack and Max

“Great place, fantastic views,”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2013

It is a great place if you have a car. No good without one. We did all our own catering. The barn is spacious with every thing you need to enjoy your stay in North Wales.

“Great modern converted barn in scenic area”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2013

The barn was ideally placed for us being within half an hours drive of most major sightseeing attractions, and was beautifully converted with modern furnishings. We enjoyed watching the jet fighter planes weaving through the mountains. I would suggest that the property may not be so suitable for tiny children, but my teenagers thoroughly enjoyed it and didn't want to go home. We were only the 4th/5th holidaymakers in this new conversion, so these few extras are suggested, not a criticism, just things which we would like...a bin outside, some pegs for the washing line, a large mirror near a plug so you can dry your hair etc., and although a microwave has been provided, a four burner hob instead of two would make cooking easier for a larger family, or if not, a wok so we could cook in one pot. All in all we would recommend this place, and would have no hesitation in returning.

“perfect description of location and property”

Reviewed 25 Jun 2013

This cottage has a stunning view and has been sympathetically and lovingly restored by its owners. With a large lawn to eat alfresco, weather permitting, this was a welcoming retreat internally. Heating and lighting are 'green', but perfectly adequate and the cost of running was included in the price. The rooms were clean, reasonably furnished and the kitchen well equipped. There was some very good walking directly from the property and other things to do nearby. The warm welcome was appreciated. You do need a reasonable level of fitness to get the most from a stay here. The owners are still finally equipping the property and currently there are no bedside lamps, but this is a minor niggle and I am sure will soon be rectified. Free Wi-Fi was also most welcome, for those of us who needed to keep in touch.

“Lovely spacious, modern cottage surrounded by beautiful green mountains & sheep !”

Reviewed 14 Jun 2013

We had a lovely holiday in this cottage, we have 3 small children, they loved it, huge garden and grounds for them to run and explore including woods and a small stream. It was lovely to look out the door at the beautiful hills. The cottage is modern, comfortable, good heating system and clean. Everything is new and nice, comfortable beds, There were only a few little things that would make the stay even more comfortable, I think these things will come with time as the cottage is newly renovated. No washing machine - but they are getting one soon, a microwave would be useful as there are 2 rings to cook on, not 4, there were lots of glasses but no wine glasses and poor wifi. Overall the cottage is lovely and comfortable, great for a peaceful rest in the countryside. We went to Barmouth Beach twice during our stay, it was about 30mins drive which is not boring because of the beautiful countryside, the beach has a big car park, shops including an ice cream shop called knickerbocker glory the shop is very pink and sparkly. The beach has lovely sand and was not busy.

Owner's reply: Thanks for this good review and for the comments regarding improvement. We would just like to add that we have now put a microwave in the cottage and sorted out the Wi-Fi by installing an extender in the cottage which should give a good signal to the whole cottage. Also in light of the comment regarding wine glasses we will also be getting some of these.
