We've had a wonderful stay in a fabulous house. Lovely and clean- well done to the cleaner! Everything we needed is provided and we love the seaside themed decorations. It's been a real treat to stay. The beaches are wonderful, especially with the huge waves from Storm Dennis. Al in all a fantastic trip. (And the tip about warming the Bara Brith was a great one, thanks).

Just arrived and wanted to say how thoughtful all the Hallowe'en touches are! From the spooky noise pad in the single bedroom to the selection of ghostly/ Hallowe'en books and DVDs left out for our enjoyment. Lovely, lovely touches and very much appreciated.1st November - a terrific final day at LLanbedrog - beach, woods and the excellent Plas Glyn y Weddw where we enjoyed good food and the art and history on view in the house. We are looking forward to our 3rd stay in Bodarfor.

This is our fourth time staying at Bodarfor. Ideal base in a beautiful village. This is our favourite cottage to stay at in Aberdaron and we have stayed in a few ! We had two lovely meals in the Ty Newydd which has a good varied menu. Aberdaron has an amazing dog friendly beach and is great for the whole family. I recommend the ice cream / pizza shop at the back of the newsagents if you feel peckish whilst out on the beach. Amazing snacks at good fair prices and friendly service. Love coming to Aberdaron and love staying here at Bodarfor. Thanks again.

Lovely comfortable house, with everything to hand. Enjoyed the village, surrounding beaches and bays - a beautiful area that we will want to return to. The Bakery and Fish and Chips come highly recommended!! - not good for putting on the pounds though!!All round a great holiday.

21st September 2019

Beautiful house. Loved the beach / sea theme all the way through! Nice little village with lovely beach - dogs loved it.Coastal walks lovely but nearly killed us, lovely views. The gallery at Llanbedrog and beach next door worth a visit! Weather has been mixed, so had to relax around the house a few times! Just chilling. Only thing found a bit lacking in local info apart from which beaches to visit. Thanks again for lovely place to stay, will miss the house and garden. Shelley will especially miss the boat buoys which she enjoyed playing with it
