Family get together revisiting old haunts and exploring new. Terrific cottage in excellent location and stunning scenery. House keeping excellent. We agree with other recommendations but would add Barmouth (by train from Pwllheli) and the coastal path from Tudweiliog to Porth Dinllaen. Would love to come again. P.S. Amazing weather!

Super cottage - so light and airy - beautifully furnished. We loved sitting out for meals & drinks. Bobbi loved the smells of previous dogs. Our favourite walk was through the golf course to Porthdinllaen. Views to die for. Thanks we shall return!

A lovely week - though with changeable weather - we visit the Lleyn Peninsula twice a year to spend time with family nearby & are delighted to have found this super cottage.

Thank you Crab Cottage for a lovely week. Despite the weather - managed to have a great time.The cottage is perfect. Recommend Porth Towyn beach and walks along the golf course to the Ty Coch Inn. Hope to be back again! The garage has everything you need. Try their steak & ale pies!

Lovely cottage, very comfortable! We've had all types of weather this week with an extreme storm on Monday! Very glad of the stove and central heating. Some beautiful places to visit especially the N.T. property & gallery Plas yn Rhiw near Llanbedrog. Do try The Ship at Edern - very good food! Hope to visit again - the stunning Lleyn Peninsula.

Crab Cottage is the most wonderful cottage I have ever been in – and the garden is a sheer delight. We were thrilled when we arrived on the 7th and when we opened the door it was just breath taking what we saw.

You have clearly spent a lot of money to get the cottage the way it is and it is absolutely perfect – the décor, the room – just everything – so thank you for letting us share your home. The shower is incredible and so easy to use. We had the double room and my sister the twin room downstairs, so we didn't use upstairs at all.

We will go back to Crab Cottage again !
