Beautiful old stone cottage with amazing views across to Criccieth and the castle and bay. Also lovely sandy beach ideal for children and dogs.

Black Rock's 3 miles of sandy beach is just 1/2 a mile by car or on foot via the Wales Coast Path that can be accessed from your garden gate. There's a convenience store and chip shop within a mile of your Morfa Bychan accommodation, whilst at the other side of the headland, Criccieth Beach can also be accessed by following the Wales Coast Path for less than 1/2 a mile.
