Reviewed 26 Nov 2016

Well what can I say about this beautiful house? We had a fantastic weekend here to celebrate my mums 60th birthday! The house is beautiful, well thought out, well equipped and simply a wonderful place to stay! The owners Annette and Peter could not have been more helpful or accommodating! Such lovely people! The house is in a beautiful spot, with a great pub literally next door, full of locals and visitors. We will definitely be back to Y Gorlan.

Really pleased you had a great time. It was lovely to meet you and your family. Hope to see you soon!
