    Really pleased with the standard of accommodation. Kitchen equipment was like new and an excellent range of utensils,pans etc. The views from the windows at front and side are wonderful. Julia the owner was very easy to contact and dealt with queries promptly. The local restaurant Riverside was a real bonus ,efficient staff and a lovely conservatory dining area. Local walks and beaches were a treat. It really is a beautiful area. Good to see so many wild flowers in the hedgerows. We were 3 generations aged 2-73 .

    Everything about the Old Gatehouse is excellent! We had a few days away with 2 other families and came here on a whim. We all agreed that everything about the accommodation and the area is excellent and that we will definitely be returning here again. The cottage itself has amazing views of the surrounding countryside. It is clean, well looked after and well equipped with plenty of good quality kitchen ware and furniture for 12 (if not more) people. There are 2 great pubs within 5-10 min walking distance with amazing quality food that is not over priced. Other amenities are located in a neighboring town that is less than 10 mins away by car. If you like walking in the countryside there are plenty of routes that can be taken straight out the door. The children particularly enjoyed the seaside town of Aberdyfi which has an amazing sand beach and clear waters, and great ice cream parlours too of course.

    cottage was lovely but amenaties to far and we would have liked a larger area around the cottage

    Response on behalf of the owner; I'm so pleased you thought the cottage was lovely, thank you, but couldn't quite understand your comment about the amenities being too far as they are on the same site. In addition, apart from the on site restaurant Y Garth, there is also a lovely gastro pub, The Riverside, only a couple of mins walk from the front door together with the beautiful sandy beaches of Aberdovey only 5 miles away, which I hope you managed to visit.

    The house was just perfect the local village people were warm and friendly the Riverside Pub had good food and great atmosphere.The only downfall was some miscommunication about the use of the pool facilities at the ajoining resort.
