Reviews

Searched for a suitable dog friendly cottage and found the ideal place in an area we wanted to visit for the first time. "Ty Cam" near Aberdaron proved an excellent choice and the website accurately described all it had to offer. We were not disappointed in anything and had a fantastic "get away from it all" break. The Llyn Peninsula is a wonderful place to explore, even during the recent storms. Peter Curtis - 23rd September 2018
Excellent, owners are a real asset as they helped us have a fabulous experience despite arriving in major snow storms and being snowed in a couple of days, very warm and friendly, excellent cottage and facilities.Mr Andy Jones - 12th March 2018
