Reviews

The bungalow is lovely and comfortable with a fantastic view to the rear.Dorothy from Cheshire - 30th April 2018
One of the best holidays. The cottage is a total escape, warm and welcoming with a lovely garden that is safe for my child and dog. We loved the scenery, which we enjoyed from the hot tub, that really made the holiday for me. Thank you everyone Tracy and Mike - 24th May 2017
It was perfect. Fantastic holiday in this lovely accommodation, lots to do in the local area and all the comforts of home. The beach is a must to visit, great views and the cafe is lovely. the fish and chips in Aberdaron are so good.Couple from Warwickshire - 23rd April 2017
Great property and location. Whistling Sands cafe is very good, coastal walks are stunning - easy to observe seals and other wildlife. Good fishing from various locations.Family from Worcester - 26th September 2016
Very enjoyable stay.
Tips - Visit Plas Brondanw Gardens which is about an hour's drive away near Porthmadog. Not very well known but was the home of Clough Williams Ellis who designed Port Meirion.Family from Sale - 11th June 2016
Lovely cottage in a quiet rural location.
Enclosed garden enabled us to safely let the dog out. The weather was good all week and we were able to go walking and also visit local towns and beaches The Ty Coch Inn can be found at a fantastic beach location at Morfa Nefyn. The food and beers were very good & we visited here twice. We also had excellent lunches at Kim & Co in Abersoch & at the stately home/gallery close to the lovely beach at Llanbedrog. Whistling Sands was also a nice beach .David from Bolton - 14th October 2015
