“perfect spot for barmouth”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

everything we needed was in the property including travel cot and high chair over the road was a single gate into a public garden area and through there to a small beach which we had to ourselves for the full week although that would probably be different in the school holidays
only a short walk into town although 1 short steep part on the way back
on the whole i can recommend this property as i have already done to work mates

“Most pleasing and comfortable property with great view!!”

The proximity of Borthwen to Barmouth town centre and harbour is just a few minutes walk along the main road. The property itself is very adequate, spacious and clean with a beautiful view of the harbour. Small public park opposite leading down to a 'secret' beach and the cross harbour railway bridge which you can walk across (we only went half way though). Well equipped and clean kitchen suitable for family dining but there are many-places to eat down in the town too. Our weeks holiday was most enjoyable having Borthwen as a home base. Anyone wishing to enjoy the town and surrounding countryside would find this property excellently positioned with sufficient off road parking for a number of cars.
Glad we found you - hope to be visiting again soon - Thanks Jago !!

“Keep going back for more :)”
Reviewed 12 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

My partner and I now consider ourselves to be 'regulars' at Borthwen, we enjoy staying there twice each year and have done so for almost four years.

Barmouth is a great base from which to explore the beautiful surroundings - Harlech, Dolgellau, Porthmadog, Portmerion, Aberdovey, etc. Whether you're there for a walking holiday or just to relax on the beautiful stretch of an excellent beach, there are choices galore.

The house is in a superb location - only a short walk away from Barmouth town centre - , with terrific views of the sea from the balcony in the large living room (even better when the sliding doors are open on good days, though there is some road noise).

Recent improvements (the new carpet and sofas) are greatly appreciated, making this a very comfortable 'home from home'. There is a huge bathroom with separate shower cubicle which has the best power shower we've experienced.

The kitchen is roomy and well equipped, and all rooms have been spotlessly clean when we've visited.

We can highly recommend this lovely property to potential self-catering Barmouth visitors. We are sure you will enjoy it as much as we do :)

“Comfortable house, fantastic views and great walks”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Booked last minute and very pleased we did. First-class location with fantastic views. Small amount of road noise but not disturbing and worth it to watch the world go by. Warm and comfortable house and had everything we needed. Brilliant for walking - lots of hill walks with amazing panoramic views but also lots of flat walking by the sea and across the estuary to Fairbourne - or up the side of the estuary towards Dolgellau. Didn't want to leave!
