A beautiful house furnished to the highest quality and cleanliness, and in a great location to explore the area.

The house was beautiful and the views from the windows were breathtaking. It was only a 5 minute walk to Porthmadog's busy high street, harbour and famous Ffestiniog mountain railway. Porthmadog is a fantastic geographical location; with the mountains on one side and beautiful beaches on the other, there was always something to do, see or experience.

Fabulous house in a perfect location. The views were stunning, the interior of the house was lovely with a great layout and lots of quirky original features, the local dog friendly beaches were amazing and the locals were friendly. 10/10

The property was really well equipped and was like home from home. The beds were really comfy and the rooms downstairs were very cosy.

Afallon is a beautiful cottage, very well appointed throughout. Really high quality fixtures and fittings. Spacious and extremely clean throughout. Bathrooms (main and en-suite) are fantastic. Jacuzzi bath included in main bathroom! Plenty of hot water and great water pressure made for a lovely shower. Great location and view. Lovely fires, including free wood as a starter. We would highly recommend.

We found the property to be excellent and exceeded our expectations on the quality of the furnishings and equipment provided. It had everything we required and the views from the property, particularly the bedrooms, were breathtaking. As we knew the area the property was well situated for everything we wanted to do.

The house was furnished beautifully and the Aga in the kitchen kept the place warm and welcoming and was a pleasure to cook on. The view from the front of the house is magnificent and the location is just right - not too far to walk into town but away from all the traffic, and there was never a problem with parking.

Fabulous cosy cottage in quiet location but within easy reach of all amenities. Renovated to a high standard resulting in a comfortable and well equipped cottage. Stunning views over the mountains, estuary, town and steam railway reveals ever changing scenery. Will definitely be back next year.
