Gorgeous house - possibly our best self-catering property yet. Great property, very well equipped. Best of Wales staff particularly friendly and helpful.Sue from Hereford - 17th April 2018
Thank you so much for making an extra special weekend even more enjoyable. The mill is a real special find and we'd love to come back. - 16th April 2018
I've never got so much pleasure from the interior of a holiday cottage before - just as pleasing and fabulous as the view and local beaches. I love the cushions, rugs, curtains, blinds, bed throws and furniture! It's homely, elegant, quirky, special and interesting all at once. A real gem of a cottage! - 13th April 2018
Diolch o galon am gael aros yn y bwthyn bendigedig. Cawsom benwythnos gwych mewn ty o safon anhygoel. Rydym i gyd yn teimlo wedi ymlacio'n llwyr. - 2nd April 2018

Wedi cael penwythnos gwych yma yn dathlu penblwydd ffrind arbennig. Ty gwych, morethus mewn ardal braf iawn. Diolch Daloni. - 12th January 2018
Wedi treulio wythnos fendigedig yn Hen Felin. Popeth o'r safon uchaf. Chwaethus a chartrefol. Wrth ein boddau yma ac wedi ymlacio yn llwyr! - 5th January 2018
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
