Thank you to the guests who wrote this poem during a wet weekend at the cottage:


"We arrived after nine,

At this house so sublime.

Gorgeous views of the beach,

And everything within reach!

We sat guzzling wine

in a kitchen so fine

There are fab cozy beds

Where we rested weary heads zzz

The shower is ace

We had plenty of space

Five people had fun,

(we just wish there'd been sun!)"

"Gwril View is a great place to stay, beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean, very well equipped, and so much thought given to all the holiday makers needs. On top of that it's right in the centre of Barmouth, a couple of minutes walk from the station and all amenities, and with a sea view from the lounge and main bedroom. 5 stars all round!"
October 2023 :
"Really lovely house situated in a quiet road off the middle of town. Photos don't do it justice as the rooms a [sic] very spacious. Everything you need is there and the furniture is very comfortable (not always the case in a holiday home!).

Yes, the walk from the High Street is very steep but it's also very short, so not an issue for us. We visited for a 4 night walking holiday and the mountains in the area are absolutely stunning. We did Cadair Idris and Rhinog Fach/Y Llethr, the latter being one of the loveliest walks we've ever done and we hardly saw a soul. Wonderful to come back to such a lovely house to relax after those!!"

“Gwril View is in an excellent location within Barmouth, and Barmouth is a great centre to discover lots of north-west Wales' attractions! It felt very safe and cosy during the miserable weather and has good space for a family to enjoy. Take Teresa's advice about parking in town before locating the house - it is up a very steep and narrow road. We had a great stay and I'm sure you will too.”

“We had a fab week In Barmouth. The house is in the perfect place - just a couple of minutes walk from the bustle of Barmouth but removed enough to have a little peace and a great view to the sea. There is no garden or vehicle access but the views and the spaciousness of the house make up for it, and the owners provide parking nearby. Definitely recommended.”

“We have just had an amazing week in Barmouth - … cottage was very clean, with many thoughtful touches within the property and generally very cosy and welcoming… Would highly recommend to all and would gladly come back in the future.”

“Good location minutes from high street. Fabulous views over the rooftops. All facilities you need for a holiday.”

June 2019
What a wonderful view! I looked forward to waking each morning just to see the view of the sea from the window at the end of the bed! The house was much bigger than I expected, in a great location and with everything we needed for a really comfortable break. Really peaceful and relaxing, thank you. Will definitely be recommending to others visiting the area.

What a gem of a place just spent a week there, perfect in every way. Will certainly go back.
Had a lovely weekend again at Gwril View. We so enjoy our annual weekend trip here. We always feel so at home in the Cottage. Teresa it is a credit to you.
"... The house is beautiful, characterful and comfortable."
Had a fantastic four night here in half term. Cottage is lovely and a real 'home from home' with everything we needed. Barmouth great and we even had lovely weather.
Our forth time staying in this comfortable cottage. Always had an enjoyable and relaxing holiday. Cottage has every amenity, home from home.
Had a great time here... enjoyed the lovely area and the comfortable and cosy cottage. We really felt at home here.
Wow, lovely cottage everything you need and more. Perfect holiday. It's been a great week here in Barmouth.
Everything we hoped for and much more.
"Had a lovely week. Cottage had everything we needed. Kids loved it - lovely walks over cliff tops and the bridge. Enjoy the sea air and cosy evenings."
Thank you Teresa and Mark we had a brilliant weekend- cottage sooo lovely a home from home xx
wonderful company xx
A wonderful stay at Gwril View- fabulous location, terrific views, and a warm comfortable and very well equipped cottage too. The perfect retreat for anyone wishing to rest and relax in superb surroundings. We will definitely be returning ASAP!
We are recently back from our third stay at Gwril View and we still love it every bit as much as the first time. Its central location is perfect for accessing everything beautiful Barmouth has to offer and the cottage itself is such a lovely, comfortable place to stay. The weather this time wasn't great but there is so much to do in the area that we still struggled to fit everything in that we wanted to do. We have been coming to Barmouth for over ten years now and this is the only accommodation we have used more than once. I am pretty sure we will be back again next year as well!!
A new recommendation is the Corris Mine Explorations based at Corris Craft Centre, a very well priced activity, ideal for a wet day out and a real insight into the history of the area. We ate at The Anchor a couple of times, right on the harbour we enjoyed excellent food with even better views! And no trip to Barmouth is complete without a walk up the rock to take in the spectacular scenery and an evening on the harbour catching crabs is something else we never tire of either.
I know there are so many options when it comes to accommodation in Barmouth and the surrounding area but for us nowhere beats Gwril View. Thanks again Teresa for letting us use your wonderful cottage x
We had the pleasure of staying at Gwril view in June and we were delighted with the house. It's spacious, comfortable, homely, in a great position and has everything you can think of to make a great holiday. We would recommend Gwril view to anyone and hope to return for another stay.
Stayed at Gwril View last weekend for two nights. Upon arrival I immediately felt at home as it had a real homely feel to it. Every room in the cottage is tastefully decorated and has lots of little quaint features. The position is perfect and the view from the bedroom window is absolutely amazing. I would have no hesitation staying here again, either Winter or Summer. Teresa, the owner, has made a real effort to make this cottage everything it is. Well done Teresa, it's certainly a hit with me.
We had a lovely time, cottage was fantastic. Highly recommended! Thank you x
Great cottage, great location & everything on hand, very helpful, thank you.
We LOVE Gwril View!! We had a fabulous week - it is a real home from home in the perfect location with amazing views of the beach. We would recommend The Captains Table and Knickerbockers for those new to the town. Barmouth is a wonderful little town with everything you need for a true seaside holiday and we come back almost every year. If only we could come back to Gwril View, but sadly it isn't big enough for our usual group.
If you are considering Gwril View for your Barmouth holiday you won't be disappointed.
Thank you for letting us use your lovely cottage.
I LOVE GWRIL VIEW ! I have had an amazing time and would love to come back again.It is such a good holiday and the scenery is lovely.The sweet shop is a must and also the restaurant "Captain's Table"You've got to try it :).Fab Holiday :D
I had a fantastic birthday weekend with friends and my husband really enjoyed his walking weekend. The cottage is a great base and is well located with everything you need. Fab time will definitely go again.
What a beautiful cottage and great weekend. I cannot recommend Gwril View enough. I hope to return soon. Kids loved the traditional seaside fun.

Oh how lovely it is to see Gwril View on here. This was our first home together in 1997 and where we got engaged. We loved the views and would pull up some chairs with the sash windows up taking in the view on sunny days. The kitchen has been modernised since we were renting it! ...I just wanted to comment on the cottage we used to love and have so many lovely memories of.

FANTASTIC accommodation and location!! Beach, harbour, shops etc are less than five minutes on foot as well as the local train station. Gwril View has everything you would need for a great holiday and is both clean & tidy with stunning sea views from upstairs. We had such a great weekend break last year that we came back for a week (Easter 09) and it just gets better!! We really LOVE Gwril View and will definitely be coming back some time soon. Highly recommended.

Great accommodation, want for nothing. The wine on arrival was a nice surprise. Views from the first floor were fantastic. The hill up to the cottage took a bit of getting used to. Very clean and very comfortable well worth a visit would highly recommend.
