Guest Reviews 


We spent a lovely couple of days. The cottage is great and the view is very pleasant and relaxing. Checking in (and out) was very comfortable. The house was extremely clean and spotless. There was a lovely cake on arrival. Eleri was very proactive and responsive. We weren't lacking for anything at all. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle. It was a very pleasant experience on the Welsh countryside.l

We stayed here for 2 nights. Located in a beautiful location with stunning views. Eleri is a super host, very friendly and very responsive. We highly recommend this cottage and super host Eleri, and it is one of the best places we have stayed. No doubt we will visit again. Thanks Eleri for your great hospitality.

Had a lovely 3 night break with partner and 4 kids aged 23, 13, 10 and 2 over NYE 2022/23. We used 4 beds and the travel cot to fit us all in.
We loved the sense of space, quality furnishings, and peaceful location.
Actually easy to spot/get to using G- Maps.
Eleri left us a NYE themed chocolate cake, a bottle of fizz, fresh eggs, snacks, and a pre-lit oil burner! We were able to get moved in and start having fun in minutes! This host really knows her stuff!
3-bedroom cottage doesn't really do justice - the huge dine-in kitchen, huge living room, boot room, high ceilings, and a couple of nooks/corridors make it feel (at least) like you are in a 4-bed home.
Would recommend highly and will definitely consider staying again in the next year. Well worth it.

Eleri is a super host, she greeted us upon arrival and left us a number of goodies so kind.
The barn itself is immaculate, beautifully decorated with so many lovely touches.
We enjoyed a relaxing weekend here. The views amazing and the boys took full advantage of the fields outside for football.
We would love to visit again thanks for having us x

Eleri is super host with very friendly and welcoming approach.
We had amazing couple of days in this very secluded place with stunning views . Property is absolutely spotless and well furnished. Beds were extremely comfortable . Kitchen was supplied with extra goodies which we didn't expect but loved it all.
After we got there we wished our trip was planned for more days to enjoy the tranquility of this place
We are very grateful to have found this and would love to visit again.

What an absolutely amazing place! We could not have found a better view of the spectacular Welsh countryside, it’s stunning beyond words. Y Beaudy bungalow was extremely tidy and comfortable, and Eleri was a lovely host. This place made us fall in love with Wales. Before we left, we were already talking about a return visit to Y Beaudy. Five stars just isn’t enough.

Amazing hosts, nothing is to much to ask of them. such a beautiful property that is like home from home. Extremely clean and well presented with plenty of privacy.

 Eleri has thought of absolutely everything to make Y Beudy an exceptionally comfortable place to stay. She met me on arrival and made sure I was happy with the property, giving me tips on where to visit. All appliances and equipment are of the highest quality, the beds are really comfortable and it feels warm throughout. The delicious gifts of cake and other treats that were waiting for us were most thoughtful. I can definitely highly recommend Y Beudy and we hope to return next year.

August 2021


The 5 night stay in this most beautiful property massively exceeded our expectations, we wanted for nothing the kitchen was fully equipped with all the appliances you require and furnished with a huge dining table. All the beds were extremely comfortable, both bathrooms are complete with large showers and one has a bath. The views from the front patio area, which is huge, are breathtaking and the furniture here is of the same high quality as everything inside. The hostess Eleri was marvellous and was the icing on the cake, she even left for us a wonderful homemade chocolate cake and 6 free range eggs all of which were ‘double yolkers’…. we loved it and cant imagine anyone thinking differently

July 2021


It was a such amazing experience, beautiful cottage, stunning view, tranquil location, nice host. There were four of us in the group, and we all would like to thank Eleri so much for the cake, eggs and actually everything

It's positioned brilliantly for accessing the beach ( Barmouth ), walks (Aran Mawddwy, Ann Griffiths trail ), bike rides ( Lake Vyrnwy & Mawddach trail ) and other local family activities including the craft centre in Coris. We were so lucky with the weather, having just 1 afternoon of rain! The children loved playing in the field and we all enjoyed watching the aerial display by the  wonderful Red Kites on a number of afternoons. Your cottage is very well looked after, spacoius, super clean and welcoming. Thank you.

Eleri, thank you for a lovely stay. The boys loved the chocolate cake. We didn't expect the cottage to be so well equipped with all the cleaning and toiletries supplied. The place was spotless which was great. I did see other people had said that previous which was one reason I choose cottage but it really was spotless. We really had a great week here. You made sure we knew the best places to go to and you made sure we were happy. We will definately be back again!!
