Fabulous little cottage on a stunning manor estate. The gardens were beautiful. Lots of outdoor space for kids and our small dog loved it too! We had a very enjoyable stay and will definitely rebook. Lots of lovely beaches nearby. Recommend Harlech beach and castle approx. 20 mins drive away.

Beautiful scenery and plenty to explore.

Sara Cowan - 16th October 2018

Fine. Been there 5times over the years. At last a topper on the double bed to reduce the hardness. The work over the years has improved the outlook...can now see the sea! Plenty of space for our dog.

J E Horton - 9th October 2018

Lovely cottage very clean and very well equipped. The garden with sea view was delightful. Would have been easier if able to take ,the car closer to cottage to unload before parking in the allocated bay as the staggered pathway was a little annoying and it was unfortunately raining as we arrived and departed. But overall we had a lovely stay and were made to feel most welcome with the ample welcome pack, plentiful tourist info and games available in the cottage.There was a reasonable walk down to the seafront, restauarants and castle then back up the hill again pushing a buggy but we enjoyed that.

Everything best there could be!

Christine Chilcott - 24th July 2018

Perfect in every way; hope to return so I can do some walking (for which it was way, way too hot!)

C Page - 13th July 2018

Lovely converted stable cottage very comfortable, clean and well stocked with bifold kitchen door opening up to quiet private garden and wild woodland area. Not fully enclosed for dogs but we had no problem. Short walk to the castle and beach otherwise 30-45min drive to SnowdoniaÂ’s famous walks or 20-30mins down the Llyn to Abersoch and crossing over to Ty Coch Inn. We loved it.

S Armitage - 8th June 2018

Lovely quiet location and lots of garden area with views of the sea. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable .

A trusted customer - 25th May 2018

Great location within walking distance of the town and the beach, and a fantastic view across the garden to the sea. The house itself is very well equipped, with comfortable beds and plenty of space.

A trusted customer - 11th May 2018

Warm, clean and cosy cottage in nice location. An extra loo would have been good.

Climbed a mountain, walked the coast path (some of it). Visited 2 castles, travelled on mountain railway. Overall a busy and enjoyable week despite the weather some days! A lovely cottage and base to explore the local area from. A good week here in a great cottage which is surrounded by wonderful countryside!

What a great week! Not only was the weather fantastic, the cottage was idyllic…what a setting and perfectly located. It is the first time we have visited the Llyn Peninsular, and we're impressed with it. Borth-y-gest is a must. (The walk from Black Rock sands to the café is wonderful – 6 mile round trip). We loved Abersoch, Aberdaron, the steam train through Snowdonia to Caernarfon, and Criccieth. Thanks for a great week.

Re-visit after 3 years and saw lovely improvements to the cottage and grounds. Sausages at the local butchers excellent. Beach at Black Rock superb! The Cottage is lovely and we were lucky with weather. Hope to return soon. Thank you.
