Reviews

We felt welcome and house was very comfortable, it was great.
Check out walking paths beforehand.Family from London - 4th April 2017
The house was very warm, clean and beds were comfortable. I would recommend the house for a family with several children. It was very good value for money.
Recommendations: My children (from 8 to 14) loved the Zip World. Beatiful walk in South Stack (Holyhead, Anglesey). Loads of activities but many aren´t open until April/May (steam trains, boat trips...). Caernarfon Castle is very interesting to visit.Belen from Spain - 28th February 2017
The property suited our needs perfectly, spacious and warm. Location was rural with easy access to the main road and towns. All property details were correct and directions good. The cycle way was easier reached from the property, and great for all the family young and old. Short cycle into Caernarfon and its amazing castle or cycle the other way into the countryside. Children enjoyed racing the trains!Family from Stratford-upon-Avon - 30th October 2016
We had a fantastic time here, so peaceful and so homely, we hope to use the property again if we visit the area. Caernarfon Castle and town are a must as well as a visit to Dinas Dinlle Beach, Zip World Velocity is amazing and an absolute must and is not to be missed.Simon from Huddersfield - 9th May 2016
The property was everything it said was.
It was really clean, in a great location and great for a family holiday. Try and do "a bit of everything" I love North Wales for its Mountains but it has a wonderful coast line and townsBarry and Family - 22nd September 2015
