Thank you for a lovely stay - the house has been great, clean and comfortable.Lovely garden.

Ant Fergison & family

Perfect! We visit Criccieth every year (for the past 18 years) and have stayed in various different accommodation types. This house is perfect for a large group - or if you want the luxury of a big newly renovated house with all mod cons. The location is great for exploring all of Criccieth and as a base to use public transport (trains and bus) farther afield. There's plenty of parking space at the rear of the building for car users which means you can get to explore more of Gwynedd. The house is spotlessly clean. Well decorated and maintained. Freeview TV, wifi, dishwasher, washer, dryer, good oven, 2 X fridges, 2 X freezers, utility room. TVs in several of the bedrooms. Conservatory looking out over wonderful garden with 2 fruit trees. Being here in Autumn is still worth the trip as there's much to do and the area is beautiful all year round. The garden must be even more amazing in summer.

Steadman party

Beautiful house. Lovely garden.

Dave Sawvain & Nick Russell, Nottingham

Great house & garden. Enjoyed spending time in the conservatory. Ideal location for exploring the area. Can recommend the fish & chip shop round the corner & bacon steaks from the butcher on the High Street. Saw a seal on our last beach walk.

We loved the holiday because the views are great. The surroundings are good because we love the ice-cream shop, beach, castle and sailing with our cousins. Everything comfy and relaxing.
