Relaxed and just what we needed.
The area is suited to all as everything ie walking beaches towns places of interest are nearby.Family from West Yorkshire - 2nd September 2017
Stunning place. Luxury home-from-home. Perfect location for an escape from day-to-day life with the family. Even though it was a typical winter weekend - weather-wise - the beaches were perfect for the family to play cricket and the dogs to run around. Abersoch and Aberdaron both had flat sands, so can only imagine they are perfect when it comes to a warm summers day!
Everything was great. Thank you Best of Wales and home owner!Stephanie from Shropshire - 14th February 2017
Amazing, fantastic. Lovely beach around, amazing place, very quiet, was perfect.Dariusz from Clevedon - 1st November 2016
A very comfortable house for our party of 9 + dog. It is very well equipped with stylish decor, large bbq and a fire pit in garden, surounded by countryside but not isolated, could go on for ever, great time had by all.
Recommendations: Car needed. Aberdaron well worth a visit, Morfa Nefyn very shelted, nice pub with food.Linda from Powys - 1st October 2016
