We booked Mierion House for a weeks holiday with my parents, and 2 dogs, we chose the property for the location, size, local amenities and that it was dog friendly, although we did have to pay extra to take 2 dogs, but it did not appear to be a problem.
The booking process was straightforward and the staff helpful. I was contacted a few days before by the owner with key location information.
We arrived late in the afternoon, and it was raining (as it did most of the week), the parking was not ideal, it was in front of the property on the main road which was very busy most of the time, the space was not guaranteed, and the thoughtless parking of the adjoining residents and their visitors meant that we had to park in the pub car park a few times as the space was taken.
We were really pleased with the cottage, it was clean, bright, comfortable and well equipped, they had even left 2 dog bowls for us to use. There was also a pint of milk in the fridge, and some home made shortbread which my mum enjoyed.
The bathroom was big and very clean, and the bedrooms were all well furnished and the beds were very comfortable with lovely bedding. My parents thought that the bedrooms were cold but there were heaters all over the house for a boost if required. The lounge was a good size with 3 big comfy sofas with throws if needed. There was a real fire but we did not need to light it as it was not that cold, but I would imagine it would be lovely in winter. The kitchen has everything we needed but we ate out mostly.
We visited the local Pub the Victoria which was great, we went to Shell Island, Portmadog, and the beach there too. Harlech Castle was only a couple of miles away, and we also visited the beach at Barmouth. We would have visited Portmierion but it did not allow dogs so that was out. On the whole it is a very dog friendly area and we had plenty of good walks, and the dogs loved the sea.
A great base to explore this beautiful area, and we would love to visit again.
