Greeted by staff who couldn't have been more helpful. Made us a cup of tea and homemade Welsh cakes, and had time for a chat and talk about the local area. We were shown to our room, which was very tastefully decorated and immaculately clean. We had our dog with us, in the room we're some dog biscuits, a towel...

Having spent a weekend using two yurts and a Caban for the family and then the rest of the week as a couple in the yurt, we thoroughly recommend The Slate Shed, as a site where you feel extremely safe and comfortable and yet get a sense of being in the wilds. The views and walks are breathtaking and the...

We stayed in a caban for a change from camping because the weather was still cold. We found this place on the off chance and it was lovely. A great location and gave a real feeling of the great outdoors but with a few creature comforts and a warm log burner. The service was warm and friendly we would defiantly...

We stayed for 5 nights in the Tommy yurt and had the most fantastic time. The yurt was well equipped - plenty of space for two adults, two children and a dog. The cooking area is outside but under a canopy so you can prepare meals even when it's raining. Despite there being no electrical hookup, lighting (very bright!) and...

Thanks so much for sharing your experience of staying in Tommy. Tommy is one of our new pop-up yurts so it's great to hear that it was fun and comfortable for your family to use in early April! There's plenty more adventures to be had in this lovely area so we hope to welcome you back again soon. Sarah and...

Graig Wen is the sort of place you'll want to keep returning to. We stayed in Pine Cottage as usual this time in March. It's a lovely time to visit as you've got spring lambs, daffodils and primroses. Also we had our dog with us as its very dog friendly and before 1st April all the beaches are open for...

Thanks for your review - we're glad you and Bert the dog enjoyed your spring holiday. We're lucky that there's so many dog friendly beaches, cafes and pubs in the area all year round.

We stayed here August 2016 and what a cracking spot this is! we stayed in our camper van on the touring park and we had the very end small pitch which was ideal for us because i hate being in the middle of everyone. there was enough room for our sun canopy and it made it more private for us...

Thank you! The track back up the hill from the estuary is quite a work out! The bench half way up comes in quite handy for a breather for some people and being able to cycle all the way to the top is pretty impressive...We look forward to welcoming you back to camp another time. Sarah and John

We returned to stay here after a stay in September 2016 when our daughter held her wedding reception here. We wanted to come back as we were so busy we didn't get chance to look around the area and view the beautiful Afon Mawddach. Sarah and John are great hosts, very helpful with a lot of local knowledge. Last time...

Lovely place although the rooms were very old fashioned. We had been camping with them before and it was excellent but this time as the season was a bit colder the customer service was half-hearted. As there were only a couple of rooms filled we expected to be taken care of but that wasn't the case. There were little labels...

Thanks for your feedback. We are always pleased to see guests returning and you were given our repeat booking discount rate. You were welcomed with the offer of tea and coffee which you declined, preferring to take a complimentary drink to your room.

We stayed here after reading glowing reviews online, and we weren't disappointed. The b&b is sat in a stunning location with views down to the estuary below, and with direct access from the road.
