“an Idyllic, beautiful location and cottage...was mortified to leave!!!”
Reviewed 4 September 2011 for a stay in August 2011

This is the second summer we have stayed at the boathouse, and there was 8 of us including 2 teenagers. I cannot describe how beautiful the place is and the photos do not show the sheer beauty of the cottage and the surrounding views. We have 2 dogs who slept in the out-house we walked for miles in the surrounding walks. The cottage has been finished to an exceptional high standard, but feels homely, and comfortable. I can honestly say as last year, I was gutted to leave and will be looking forward to our next visit.

This is the second time we have stayed at The Boathouse - which says just how much we have enjoyed it! The stunning location and the excellent quality of the cottage and its furnishings meant that we had a lovely and comfortable stay. I can also recommend the local pub, The Oakeley Arms in Maentwrog, for its beer, food and childrens playarea.
