  • “Access very steep and unexpected Double Bed VERY Uncomfortable One single bed unuseable as Springs coming through mattress.”

    Corner shower probably the SMALLEST possible. Picnic Table only had 2 chairs and NO cushions. Owners needs to seriously consider new mattresses for ALL the beds and much better outside facilities.

    - Mr Hutchings, September 2020

    Thank you for your valued feedback and the expressive use of capitals. We have recently replaced the double mattress and are disappointed that this wasn't to your standards and will be replacing the damaged mattress within the twin rooms on our next visit. With regards to cushions for external seating, we no longer provide these due to the exposed location of the property. We have found that although the sheep in the adjacent field are delighted to have something more comfortable to sleep on, it does become rather costly to replace. The corner shower is a standard size, and at 6ft 2inches, I have no issues with using it. We could have fitted a larger shower but would have had to remove the toilet and so you can see the dilemma we faced! There is however a shower within the bath for guests use if this facility is not to their liking. Finally with regards your comments on the access to the property, I have written a strongly worded email to the Snowdonia National Park asking if they can ensure that the roads within the area are flattened in anticipation of your next visit. We have also spoken to the council's highways team to ensure that they illuminate the 20% road gradient signs at the start of the road with Christmas tree lights and glitter balls to ensure that these are more visible. If we receive an unfavorable reply, then may we suggest you consider Norfolk for your next holiday. Finally we would like to personally thank you for snapping the key off in the door lock, which I look forward to trying to fix next weekend. Owner relations

Llandecwyn is a scattered rural hamlet in North Wales, which stands amidst farmland, hills with lakes and mountains, which are all perfect for scenic walks and mountain biking. Llandecwyn is set on the National Cycle Route 8, plus birdwatching can be enjoyed on the red kite waymarked trail, which passes through the hamlet. There are also birdwatching opportunities along the coast and at the RSPB Osprey project, which is nearby. Only 5 miles away is historic Harlech, which is situated in a magnificent position between the mountains and the sea. Harlech is dominated by its majestic 13th century castle, which enjoys World Heritage status. The town is very popular with golfers, who come to enjoy the famous Royal St. David's course, whilst the beautiful 6 mile long sandy beach is wonderful for family fun and long walks. Harlech offers an excellent variety of amenities including some good quality restaurants and a leisure centre, whilst the whole of the Snowdonia National Park, together with the sandy beaches of Cardigan Bay, are all within easy reach. Other attractions in the area include the Ffestiniog Railway and Welsh Highland Light Railway, the secluded beaches at Borth y Guest and the Black Rock sands and the Italianate village of Portmeirion.
