  • “Two families of 4 adults, 4 children (ages 11-13) and 2 dogs spent a week in August at Maes Yr Hebog.”

    House was spotlessly clean on our arrival and large enough to accommodate us all with ease. The balcony and views out to the sea were spectacular (particularly during thunderstorms). The neighbours in the house opposite were very pleasant. We were fortunate to be there during a mini heatwave which meant we were able to spend every day on the beach (with our favourite being Black Rock Sands because of the ease of being able to drive straight onto beach) The location meant it was easy to be able to travel to south to Barmouth or north to Porthmadogh (although we always too the long route to get onto the A496 from the house to avoid driving through the very tight streets of Harlech) There was a small convenience store about 20 mins walk down the hill. The hill is very steep in places making walking down tricky at times and walking back up a good workout! It was a further 10-15 minute walk from the shop to the beach. There was a lovely walk for the dogs into the hills via a path about 50 yards away from the house. The garden was big enough to sit in but probably a bit too small for the children to play in had we not been able to go to the beach every day. Harlech Castle was closed due to CoVID-19. We didn't use any of the recommendations for the local restaurants this year instead choosing to eat in most days. We had a home delivery on our arrival and then stocked up from the Tesco in Porthmadogh. The Harlech Fish & Chip shop was a 5-10 minute walk away and highly enjoyable (just be prepared for much smaller 'holiday sized' portions). The house had pretty much everything we needed - plenty of plates and glasses etc. - with a bottle of wine on arrival and welcome text from the owners. There were plenty of cleaning products and guidance to prevent CoVID-19 which was reassuring. An extra pizza tray would have been useful and we did have to buy extra dishwasher tablets, extra bin bags and extra toilet rolls because what was left wasn't enough for a family of 8 for a week (we didn't mind buying them but it would have been useful to know in advance) Bedrooms were very comfortable with lots of storage space but the dormer bedroom became so hot that two of our group chose to sleep in the lounge for the last few nights. WiFi in the lounge was good but dropped off in the bedrooms but there was strong 4G signal (O2 network) throughout the house. We've stayed at many holiday cottages in North Wales over the years and with a group our our size, with dogs, we normally have to compromise on something. This is the first cottage where we've had everything we needed. The great weather clearly helped but overall this was a fantastic holiday home. Highly recommended and we will certainly return.
