Reviews

Very nice specification, especially liked oak doors and furniture in bedroom. The bedding and duvet were very comfortable and cosy. We liked the Art work in the property, beautiful sea views and accommodating friendly staff. Enjoyed visiting the stunning cafe as well.Mrs Rebecca Hayes - 6th August 2018
Magical. Relaxing,amazing scenery, food was good and staff very helpful .Mrs Beti James - 31st July 2018
The bedroom, bed and furnishings were excellent as was the bathroom and superb towels.Pat from Porthmadog - 15th May 2018
Stunning location - very peaceful. Good standard of food at the cafeMr Richard Allen - 9th May 2018
Very pleased with it, had a great wedding break there. All in all, very impressed, thank you for organising it all and the welcome pack. Our stay was very pleasant, comfortable, it was a clean and tidy property in a great location with superb and spectacular coastal views and mountainous backdrop. The property sparkled and easily exceeded my expectations. Easy Parking, facilities for food and drink a short walk away. All you need for a quiet break. WiFi in the property, but no TV or radio, if these matter to you. We didn't miss Radio or TV during our stay, but the WiFi was useful to keep in touch for the likes of me who follow social media and go online a bit. We stayed for a short break to attend a wedding at the venue, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again, it was a really enjoyable break. I have nothing but praise for it, and would have no hesitation booking it again if that way, nor recommending it to others.Dan from Kent - 3rd April 2018
Excellent, we wanted to chill out and recuperate, this location was ideal. All the staff are helpful and the cafe is great.
Tips: Be prepared with something to pass the time away, there is no TV or Radio. Bring a supply of food with you, local shops are limited. Visit Penrhyn Castle.James from Sully, Vale of Glamorgan - 27th May 2017
A magical place and we were made to feel very welcome. Cottage was well equipped and cosy. So many things to do and see on Llyn. TY Coch in Porthdinllaen is well worth a visit.David from Staffordshire - 27th February 2017
A beautiful, quiet location where I could give myself time to Think and take time out for myself. Had some lovely walks up on the mountains and along the many beaches. The accommodation was perfect for 1 or 2 people with everything I needed. Just a peaceful place to stay.
Tips: Walk on some of the many walks starting from Nant Gwtheyrn. The coast path gives outstanding views but you can't beat the views from the Rivals ( the mountains) behind the village. The walk along the beach from Morfa Nefyn to Ty Coch is always a favourite.Guest from West Yorkshire - 11th October 2016
