“FANTASTIC. Says it all.”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a wonderful time. The accommodation is superb and the two places were great for a group, with plenty of room. Borth y Gest is quiet and so peaceful that we really relaxed. An ideal spot for exploring Snowdonia. We hope to come back. THANK YOU.

“An excellent place to stay offering beautiful views and in a great location to access both Snowdonia and the coast”
Reviewed 2 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

What a gem of a place, nicely furnished, spacious and well equipped, more than enough room for 8 people, with great views of the estuary and plenty of outdoor space. We were lucky enough to be able to eat breakfast outdoors in the garden and up on the balcony
A welcome pack is provided on arrival, which was a nice touch.
Great location to access the mountains and the coast. Could not fault it and I'm already planning the next trip

“Great location, well equipped and really comfortable”
Reviewed 11 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

I arranged a weeks New Year's holiday for an extended group of friends (17) - age ranging from 2 to 50 and the accommodation was absolutely brilliant for us. Enough space for us to gather in one of the houses for a party, to all squish around one table to eat, really well appointed bedrooms with amazing views and enough space for people to have a bit of peace when they needed it!! I was constantly congratulated for finding such a great place for our get together. We have all discussed booking again. I would thoroughly recommend it.

“Idyllic Holiday”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

16 family members stayed in Bryn Gwyn & Tegfryn, ages ranging from 6 years to 69. Everyone of us enjoyed the weeks stay because the houses had everything we could possibly want, comfort, spacious accommodation and views to die for. The location in Borth Y Gest is secluded and perfect for anyone who can manage the steps up to the houses. Borth Y Gest itself is a beautiful secludes bay with lovely sandy beaches within easy walking distance, and close enough to Portmadog for shopping, pubs restaurants and the Welsh Narrow Gauge Railway. It is also an ideal location for visiting places such as Portmeirion, Criccieth and Beddgelert. We wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We rented both properties for three weeks. We are quite experienced renting holiday properties and were very pleasantly surprised by how well appointed these houses were. We wanted for nothing: central heating when the weather was cold, barbecues found in the shed for when the sun shone. DVDs and books available, full cable, and 2 flat screen TVs in each house, and Wii consoles.
The location was fantastic - there are some beautiful, yet practically deserted beaches, a short walk away - and the town was charming. The view from the property is unbeatable.
A very positive experience that we will fondly remember.
