Cottage Review:  

Lovely converted barn holiday cottage on a working farm that is managed by the owners. The owners leave you to your own devices & indeed we only met them on our morning of leaving.

Cottage clean & tidy with all utensils you will need for a weeks Holliday.

Only thing?s missing were a cottage information pack, we?ve stayed in about 20 holiday cottages & this is the 1st one to have not had an information pack or indeed a welcome pack.

The hot tub is a lovely addition to the cottage & it now has got privacy screens from the other cottages.

A good cottage in a great location.

Cottage Review:  

A perfect stay.Cottage is perfect and the hot tub brilliant. Such a peaceful quiet place. Loved seeing the farm animals and loved seeing the hens. Had a visit from the farm dog and cat too.

Well equipped kitchen and lovely comfortable bed.

Local beaches are great too and so a few beautiful sunsets.

Owners are lovely.

Looking forward to going back again.

Highly recommended

Cottage Review:  

We have just returned from a very relaxing week at Isallt cottage. We were really pleased with the accommodation and it had everything we needed for a family of four. There were some dishwashing tablets, tea towels, washing up liquid left in the kitchen and liquid hand soap in both bathrooms. You will need to provide everything else and the bigger supermarkets, such as Tesco, Lidli and Aldi are a 20 minute drive away in Porthmadog.

The owners are super friendly and just leave you to get on with your break. The hot tub was an added bonus and much needed after a walk up Snowdon!

There is a lovely walk to the beach from the cottage, which took us 15 minutes, across the fields and railway line. The beaches are lovely, soft sand and we saw some amazing sunsets.

We recommend the fish and chip's from the Dolphin fish bar in Barmouth.

Tony's pizza was okay but nothing special....although the chips were good.

We had a meal at the Victoria Inn, which 2 out of 4 of us enjoyed, the 2 being the ones who ordered the burger!

We will be booking again!

Cottage Review:  

Stayed in isallt cottage for 4 nights. I was very impressed. Very cosy and very comfortable. Especially loved the the reclining chairs.

Everything we needed was available. Apart from food. Be prepared as you will need to travel a little for shopping. If wanting a takeaway Tony?s is yummy.

My son loved the chickens, they visited us everyday.

The hot tub is amazing, totally added bonus at the end of a day running up and down the sand dunes with my son.

North Wales is truly a beautiful place and isallt is about a mile from the beach. You can walk to the beach in about 20 minutes. In fact there are beautiful beaches everywhere but you will need a car.

Unfortunately a lot of activities were closed due to covid but we didn?t mind.

I will be returning again. Just the holiday we needed.

Cottage Review:  

We arrived at Issalt after a long drive and as soon as we entered the property it was cosy and welcoming! Sara came to check on us on our second day which we really appreciated, Pip our dog certainly liked her! She made me, my sister and Pip feel so welcome and made it clear if we needed anything to just ask. We loved staying on the farm, as animal lovers we made the most of the experience and said hello to some brand new lambs! The farm is situated in such a beautiful spot a perfect base for lots of exploring nearby. After lots of walking what more could you want than to sit in a hot tub and admire the view, including a beautiful sunset. The beds were so comfy and the house had everything you could possibly need. We hope to come back!

Thanks again for a lovely stay, it was just what we needed!

Cottage Review:  

I informed the owners of my time of arrival, got there at 3pm but the house was very cold. Was 2 degrees outside. The heating started 30 minutes later. The kitchen cabinets were greasy brown and the rug, sofa and carpets were very dirty. I hired the cottage via sykes. The cottage is literally next door to a cows shed and smells so nasty. They also have a chemical room attached with smells of cows feeding products. You couldn?t really enjoy the hot tub or open windows as flies were coming in the cottage and really strong poo smell .

No coffee, no milk no hospitality from the owners at all. They were very annoyed I complained about the cleanliness and they didn?t clean anything. Filthy place.

Cottage Review:  

Feel sadly disappointed, lacking in attention to detail. We were due to arrive late on Friday and so I contacted the owner who said the key would be left in the door so we could just walk in and feel at home. Our friends arrived earlier than us and were unable to get into the property, the weather was not good and we had made long journeys on motor bikes so our friends had to shelter in the cold shower block reserved for the caravan site, sadly I received no telephone call to let me know the key had been left behind the flower pot?? Before we arrived the owner arrived and let our friends in and turned up the heating as well as then leaving 2 dishwasher tablets and topped up the instant coffee. There were no dishcloths provided and as the weather was particularly bad the lack of heating in the morning was not appriciated as the heating is on a timer and there is no ability to override. We read throug the muddled imformation pack after a search, which said if we want heating on there would be an extra charge.

The house was clean but there were a few things that were broke or not up to our exacting standards and as I said, all was adequate, but again the attention to detail was lacking making us feel that this was a money maker business, and maybe lacking in a passion or care for this very qaint little cottage. The pictures are also a little deceiving as they make the place look bigger than it actually is and our friends were hoping to push the two singles together as in the photos, however the rooms and bed had been changed sadly.

The farm was also a bit of a mess, (I have lived on a farm) the rubbish had also not been collected and after the winds, was then strewn around, but at least that was tidied once we returned form our day out on Saturday.

The hot tub was also clean and hot thankfully warming us after being chilled to the bones.

Cottage Review:  

Whilst the owners were very polite and friendly, the house (Isallt) was attached to the cowshed, and the cows were intermittently but very frequently banging against the joining wall all night so we didn't get much sleep. We took two small dogs and every time they left a 'package' we cleared it up - but the owners dogs kept coming into the garden and leaving numerous packages. We did bring this up with the owners because we felt it hypocritical that they have strict rules around dogs and their fouling, and yet they let their dogs come and 'poo' in the gard

We have just returned from Isallt today. The property was fabulous. It is more spacious than the photos convey with everything you could need to make you feel that you are at home. It was furnished and decorated very tastefully. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped for self catering, ie. pans, knifes, baking trays, crockery etc so there is no need for eating out if you do not want to. It is ideal for children as there are 2 stairgates, a highchair and a travel cot. (We actually brought our own Hauck travel cot which was the same as t

We stayed in this wonderful cottage for a week. We had a lovely welcome from the owners on our first day. They also had dogs on the working farm, so my children loved seeing their dogs on a daily basis and looking out onto the fields at the sheep and horses. The cottage had absolutely everything in it you would need, was very clean and decorated beautifully with all the features of the barn giving it a little bit of charm too.

We had wonderful weather whilst we were there, which was a bonus.

We would walk (about 15mins) or drive (2 mins) down to the bea
