What a super time we've all had - helped by wonderful weather! We visited a different beach every day and it was so nice to come home to our holiday retreat each day. The house is beautiful - a real home from home. I'm sure this is a holiday to remember - for all the right reasons! x

David, Lucy, Eleanor, Martha & Joseph Dilks

Our sincere thanks for such a lovely, clean, well appointed and comfortable holiday cottage. We were delighted and had a fabulous time, we would be very interested in hiring the large house next door for a family holiday early next year.

Lisa Morgan

A lovely cottage - great to be able to walk into Criccieth for meals and shopping. Amazingly sunny weather - we have been so lucky. Travelled "preserved" railways, done many walks - quiet lakes and lovely beaches. A really cosy cottage to return to at the end of the day!

Sheila and Dave and Archie the Cairn Terrier - West Berkshire

A perfect cottage - we couldn't have asked for anything more. Enjoyed eating outside each evening. Kids have done plenty of cartwheels in the garden. Such a peaceful location, and yet so close to the town as well. Thank you - we hope to come back!

Howard, Becky, Chive and Thomas North Shropshire

A perfect holiday, beautiful scenery, great days out (Snowdon railway, boat trip to see dolphins etc. from Pwllheli - The Shearwater) and the perfect base.

Sarah, Linda, Betty, Martin and Neil - Manchester and Castleford

What a beautiful property! Had a great week and greatly enjoyed the cottage and wonderful area. Would definitely return and recommend.

Tony, Liz, Aaron, Gwennan, Martha and Miriam - Cardiff

Although we have visited North Wales many times, it is our grandchildren's first visit. We couldn't have a more comfortable cottage or a better location than Criccieth. They were amazed at the snowy mountains, the passes, fabulous castles and mansions as well as the steam trains. We are planning to come back and the grandchildren are insisting that we bring them too!
