“Excellent cottage and location”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed for a week beg of Sept. The cottage was perfect for us all (2 adults, 2 teenagers & 1 collie who loved the small balcony), much larger than it looks, very comfortable and has everything needed and more and beds already made up when we arrived. Parking spaces outside a big plus. Very dog friendly, has small park area over the road which leads to a little beach. 5 mins walk down to town and beach areas. Would definitely recommend and look forward to returning in the future :)

“Great house, perfect location”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is the second time we have stayed at Borth Wen - we really like it, just out of the busy part of town and has its own parking which for Barmouth is quite rare. The owner has updated the rooms since we last stayed so its all nice and fresh.
Brilliant for active holiday makers and the mix of weather we had, as when you enter the house there is a tiled entrance space and utility to take of wet coats and boots and a garage to store your bikes.
The shower is great and constant hot water with high pressure - another rarity in Welsh holiday cottages.
Sitting upstairs in the living room staring out to see - you cant get much better than that.

“An excellent base for exploring a lovely area.”
Reviewed 22 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Borth-Wen is a very comfortable holiday cottage with views you can only dream of. We had the added bonus of excellent weather but i am sure would have been just good without. Excellent family value for money. We stayed with my brother and his daughter and we couldnt fault it. Highly recommended as a base.

“Look at the view!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This became our key phrase and we did enjoy the lovely view from the lounge .
Borth wen is great value for money accommodation,it provides all that you need and is clean and well equipped.
The location is excellent in relation to the town, cycling/ walking routes,and is centrally based for other local attractions.
There is good secure storage for bikes etc. and the off road parking is a definite bonus.
We found the owner very friendly and helpful.
Barmouth itself offers something for everyone.
We will certainly go back,in fact we can't wait!
