Fantastic house, lovely decor and furnishings- perfect for a large group with enough space for everyone. Only improvements would be some larger mugs as the coffee cups are quite small and a coffee machine.

Stunning property in immaculate order, located in a beautiful spot with views across the coast nearby. We were a party of ten made up of three families and there was everything we needed in the house. Snowdonia is 15 minutes, Abersoch 20 mins and Criccieth has all the shops and cafes we needed.Our only small regret, not the fault of the owners, was that re-cycling seemed impossible locally and from the house itself.

4th November 2016

It has been a pleasure to stay in such a gorgeous, comfortable and grand home. We have had perfect weather (except no surf!) and the house has been a perfect backdrop for the Halloween season. We hope to return soon. We recommend Portmeirion, Caernarfon Castle, Cadwaladers and the Lion Hotel (fast, yummy and lovely). As well, The Ty Coch – pub by the sea in Porthdinllaen).
