Thank you for your comments we will forward them to the owner today.
Bryn Gwalia was perfectly placed. The property has views out of the windows of criccieth castle and the beaches are a 5 min walk away. We were blessed too to see dolphins in Treath beach ( by lifeboat hut) in criccieth!! What a treat that was. The house was beautifully clean & presented very well. There are 2 large fridges and a moderate sized freezer for storing small essentials. The beds are firm & en-suite to 2 double rooms were adequate & clean too. Toilet roll supplied. The garden was spacious, but have some nasty hawthorn trailing in garden which 1 of our grandchildren cut their knee on, which bled quite nasty. And also the outside furniture (benches) were rotten and were too unsafe to enjoy sitting on in the sunshine. The driveway into the property takes a very sharp turn left. Be aware of this, as a neighbour parks right on that left hand turn, which makes it extremely narrow. All in all this was a super setting, with stunning views and we found it to be a very quiet area, very peaceful as there is no through traffic on the sea front. We would definitely come again. Thankyou for making our family holiday a memorable one.

Thank you for your detailed and informative review, we are delighted that the whole family enjoyed their stay.
We've stayed at this property twice now. The location is so convenient, two minutes from the beach and shops and about the same from the playground. It's a large property with comfortable beds and lovely bed linen, three large showers and a huge bath. There is a large garden which the children loved playing in. The utility room is large with a separate tumble dryer and washing machine. However we won't be booking for next year and have found an alternative property in Criccieth. Firstly parking and access - the parking is enough for three cars and is at the rear of the property, but to get to this you have to go up a side road and then a gravelled track. Admittedly we have a large vehicle but on several occasions we couldn't get to the house without asking a resident in the side road to move their car which was met with a very unpleasant attitude. To get out we had to try and reverse down the track past all the parked cars. The house itself is lovely but could do with a bit of attention, some of the windows don't shut properly and the locks on some of the doors and one of the ensuites did not work. Lack of knives in the kitchen. None of them huge issues but the parking was too much of a stress for us.

From the Owner:- We also have a large car and have not experienced problems parking at the rear of the property but acknowledge that access can be tight for very large cars. The parking at the rear of the property is provided for convenience as sometimes it is difficult to find a parking spot very close to the front of the property at peak times. The windows do shut properly and there are plenty of knives in the kitchen.
Comfortable house in good location.
Excellent location for a family holiday with great views and a nice safe garden for the children to play in.The house was clean and very well provided just as the brochure described. Just a couple of things which could be improved - the Keysafe was difficult to operate, perhaps it was a bit old?, and the cooker door was loose, missing a screw. But we were well pleased with our choice of Bryn Gwalia as a base for our family holiday.

From the Owner: The key safehas been tested and is working correctly. The cooker door hinge has been replaced
We've had a lovely break here in the centre of Criccieth. The house is in a great location, right beneath the castle, and just minutes from the beach, cafes and restaurants. The house has been so comfortable, with the added bonus a large conservatory, where we spent most of our evenings. We enjoyed the rugby on the huge TV in the lounge and were able to celebrate Wales win in the 6 nations here in Cymru !
We would love to return in the summer with friends and enjoy meals out in the garden.
The off road parking behind the house was extremely helpful as we had 2 cars.
Thank you for a warm welcome in this lovely home from home.

Very clean and comfortable, perfect location near beach
Amazing holiday. Loved the cottage. Amazingly clean & comfortable. Perfect for our little 10 month old. We will be back.
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.
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.
Beautiful house. Lovely garden.
Thank you for a lovely stay - the house has been great, clean and comfortable.Lovely garden.
Amazing cottage, amazing week. Just stayed in the lovely cottage for a week. Amazing time had by myself, hubby and our 10 month old little girl. House is spotlessly clean which wad brilliant. Well equipped and so comfy. Criccieth is a wonderful place. Castle and beaches amazing. Views fro. Cottage amazing. We will be booking again.
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.
