What our visitors say: 

The photos showed a stunning place - but I have to say it was an even more amazing experience having a week in the most glorious setting, it surpassed all description, photos only captured 50% of its' beauty - it's a 'BE' there place - to wake up to a breath taking view whilst in your bed, to listen to the sheep, breath in the mountain air; the lighting on the mountains varies so much. The setting is isolated but with a car it is in perfect reach of beaches, towns, National Trust and country walks.

Brilliant accommodation,comfy beds, everything well appointed and it is so easy to relax and forget the real world - what more can you ask? The grounds are beautiful and the sheep always lead you to the property! There is nothing negative to say.

Such delightful owners who always aim to please - they obviously adore the place and they expect others to respect the property which then allows a high standard to be maintained. We will definitely be back :-) - cannot wait!

"MAGNIFICENT FARMHOUSE, MAGNIFICENT VIEWS!" One can only say 'WOW' when opening the door for the first time! No expense has been spared by the owners - traditional and beautifully contemporary rolled into one! The original traditional oak beams, 3ft walls, wonderful fireplace and stove made us realise we had made the right choice! However the best was yet to come. The views in the morning when we woke up were astounding! No wonder the person who reviewed the cottage next door referred to Cwm Pennant as the 'UK's BEST KEPT SECRET!' For those who have little ones (our daughter is a teenager now) there is a wonderful little playroom just off the lounge. We would have loved it when she was small and so would she. It is winter now but the garden is lovely and the whole property set within 50 acres with its own river. There is no need to leave the valley with wonderful walks from the doorstep but we did venture further afield and visited Black Rock Sands beach, the Ffestiniog railway and Portmeirion. The area has so much to explore. The owners were warm and welcoming and we cannot recommend this holiday farmhouse more highly. We will be back! Thank you "

"We came to run the Snowdonia marathon which was a wonderful experience. We were very grateful to have the comfort of Gilfach to relax in afterwards. We've stayed in many places but none have been as lovely as this one. The attention to detail was fantastic - it seemed as though every eventuality had been thought about! Poli loves to cook on holiday and the kitchen had everything he could have needed. We really appreciated the comfy beds and waking up to that view was just magical. We want to come again next year & we'd like to stay here again if you'll have us. It's just perfect! Diolch yn fawr."
