Visiting Snowdonia for a short walking holiday, we could not have picked better accommodation. John and Jupp were very welcoming and helpful, offering plenty of advice on good local hikes. The room was spacious, clean and quiet, with the added benefit of a lovely sea view. I particularly like their policy of no TVs anywhere, which only makes a stay... More
