Delighted to hear you enjoyed Pen Hendre, we would love to welcome you again in the future.
We had a wonderful time at Pen Hendre, the house was spotlessly clean, the decor was cool and quirky and it had everything we needed for a lovely relaxed stay with our Boston Terrier pup Bilbo. If you're looking for peace and quiet, along with lots of things to keep you entertained (records, tv, loads of board games and beautiful walks nearby) then Pen Hendre is the place for you!

From the owner:- Thank you so much for your lovely review. We really appreciate you taking the time to leave us feedback and are so pleased that you and your gorgeous doggies enjoyed your stay and had fun exploring the area. Hope to welcome you back again soon.'
Had a wonderful weeks break at Pen Hendre. Couldn't fault the cottage which has everything you could possibly want/need for a relaxing break. Craig the owner was very responsive to messages when making a query and the whole place was spotless and put together with an eye for design. The area is lovely and perfectly sited for exploring Lleyn and it's many pretty beaches and villages and only a 40min drive from mountains of Snowdonia. Would happily return and hope to do so in the future.
this remains excellent in every respect; one of the best self catering places I have stayed
Absolutely fantastic property, every detail of the property was modern, clean and very well thought out. It had everything you would need and more - we especially liked the disco ball in the bathroom! We wish we'd have stayed longer and will definitely be back! This is the perfect cottage for exploring the Llyn Peninsula.
This cottage was absolutely perfect. The cottage is spacious, well equipped and extremely clean. The beds were the comfiest I've ever slept in for years. There was an Alexa in each room which was a huge hit, my children loved this. A record player with some fantastic records, an original Nintendo and sega mega drive, more DVDs than I could watch in a year! Something to please everyone, for every taste, whether that be a film, series or documentary, along with Netflix as well as others. There was a cupboard full of games downstairs, but not enough time to play with them, but excellent for rainy days. The bathroom was extremely clean as was the kitchen, where you can find just about everything you need to cook a meal, you name it they provide it. There were cushions for outside and fairy lights made it lovely and cosy to sit out in the evening. I've travelled and stayed in all types of accommodation but this cottage stands out as being superb! The owners have thought of everything and more. The photos and write up don't do the property justice.
Dear Craig, Louise & Gregor
You have made this a truly magical, homely & relaxing place to explore North Wales. You have thought of every detail & have exquisite taste in interior design. We have particularly enjoyed the walk to the local beach, the Porthdinllaen walk ending at the Ty Coch Inn on the beach ... so thank you all
This is a fab property in a great location and the owners attention to detail makes for a great holiday. We have climbed Snowdon, relaxed on beaches and visited Caernarfon Castle - all brilliant! Thank you for a luxury property which is so beautifully decorated.
Andy, Sue, Luke and Connor came to Trefor for a great weeks holiday at the lovely Pen Hendre. Really enjoyed the local area and all the thing nearby. Feeling very refreshed. Board games made a comeback. Particularly after a hard day hiking up Snowdon and back. Thanks!
What a great cottage in a wonderful location! We have been so comfortable, you have thought of everything and more. We have been so lucky, really good weather, out every day walking our dog Ted.
We loved how stylish the house is - and all the little touches which show how much you've thought about what will make your visitors' holidays even better. We loved the beaches at Hell's Mouth + Rhos Neigor - and spent very pleasant times at Porthdinlean and Llanbedrog. Highly recommend the wild swimming at Llyn Pedran.
We have had a great stay at Pen Hendre, you really have thought of everything and the house is so beautifully decorated. We have had good weather all week and have loved exploring the local area and beaches. Will definitely return and recommend to others
We had a wonderful stay here at Pen Hendre. Everything we could have possibly needed and more ... Many thanks! We would love to return.
The Nicholsons are very happy! We've enjoyed staying at Pen Hendre so much. Best holiday in years. Your taste is impeccable and the finishing touches are done to such a high quality that we've felt spoilt every single moment we've had here. I especially loved the ‘vinyl touch'. Awesome, inspired and welcoming. I'm sure we'll come again.
What a find! Such a lovely holiday house; you have thought of everything that a family may need. Thank you. We will recommend to others.
Lovely home with all one could need. Thanks.
What a fabulous house, warm and inviting. Craig was prompt in attendance when needed (tiny bit of storm damage). The house is ideally located for total peninsula exploration with everywhere being in easy reach. Many thanks.
What a fab break we have had! We feel like we have truly been staying in the lap of luxury! The cottage has been finished to such a very high standard. Our every need has been met and more! we love the wee ‘beer' garden... The village is charming and the beach is a gem with spectacular views... We will definitely be back and look forward to our next visit
We only booked Pen Hendre 3 days before as a last minute break ... wow, could not have picked a better place. We were blown away! So much to see and do, and just not enough time. We cannot wait to come back. It's been a fantastic week and you have provided everything a family could want. Many thanks and every success for the future
A really beautiful well equipped holiday home in a delightful place. The weather has been perfect and my daughter and I have thoroughly enjoyed our week here. Not forgetting her little dog. Thank you.
Back a year later to find some great improvements and Pen Hendre as charming and comfortable as ever. Thanks and all the best to you with this terrific enterprise.
Absolutely fantastic property, every detail modern, clean and very well thought out. It had everything you would need and more - we especially liked the disco ball in the bathroom! We wish we'd stayed longer and will definitely be back! This the perfect cottage for exploring the Llyn peninsula
We have just had a beautiful week staying at Pen Hendre. We have had superb weather and your holiday let is second to none. We have stayed in some lovely cottages but your place was superb. Congratulations to you. Hope to be back later in the year.
Lovely stuff! A brilliant house and location. We loved staying here and hope to come back soon
Wow! What a fantastic holiday home. We've had a wonderful holiday. We couldn't have wished for better. You have done a brilliant job and you should be very proud of what you have achieved.
Great week at Pen Hendre. What a fantastic renovation you have done. Been to some beautiful beaches and harbours. Hope to come and stay again soon and see more of the area.
Lovely stay in a fantastic house! Everything we culd want and more! Great days out... Perfect house for getting anywhere, you have done an excellent job!
Pen Hendre is just perfect for a relaxing cottage break in the peaceful welsh village of Trevor; there is a sandy and shingle beach situated just a mere ten minute walk away and a range of coastal and countryside walks that are quite literally on the door-step...The cottage even comes complete with a range of handy maps to take with you on your walks!
The cottage itself is just magical, the owners have thought of literally everything to make your stay comfortable, fun and memorable! There's plenty to keep you occupied; a miniature football and snooker table, board games, books and even a record player with a range of great records...You simply cannot get bored at Pen Hendre! The kitchen even has everything you need for a picnic including: picnic basket, blanket, flasks and tupaware, you needn't take a thing with you. The décor is very tasteful and beds are so comfy we didn't want to leave!
The little garden outside is perfect for a BBQ (although the early April weather didn't quite allow for this) we enjoyed sitting outside with a hot chocolate and taking in the scenery of Yr Eifl, the mountain which serves as the stunning back-drop to the cottage. If you are lucky enough to stay in the second floor bedroom this is the view you will wake up to every day!
There is a handy little village shop a stone's throw away and its ony a short-drive to the town centre of Pwllheli where there are a great range of shops and restaurants. We also travelled to nearby Caenarfon and Abersoch - both within easy reach for a day out. Pen Hendre is very well placed for exploring the whole of the beautiful Ll?n Peninsula, we can't wait to stay here again as there is still so much more to explore!
I'm lounging on the sofa at Pen Hendre writing this review before our stay ends because I want to say how much we have loved our stay here.
This accommodation is absolutely fab so I won't cover all the usual - take it all as 5 star. I'll cover what makes it special. Pen Hendre has been renovated, decorated and furnished with love, care, enthusiasm, generosity and a great sense of fun. The owners really want you to have a great stay in a way that goes beyond simply making money - it's done with love & we've felt the pleasure they must have had in assembling it all & trying to walk in the shoes of people who come here for a holiday. Children would love it.
The village is just as it comes - friendly, untouristy, Welsh speaking. Whoever you are out there guys - hope you prosper and your imaginative enterprise reaps the rewards you deserve. Oh by the way, coastal path's quite good too!
To Craig, Louise and Gregor,
Apologies for the eviction notice you're going to have to serve on us! We've had an absolutely amazing time at Pen Hendre and don't want to leave.
Highlights have included playing lots of board games, posting messages in the postbox and lots of dancing around the living room. Who knew Jacob was a huge Abba fan! We haven't stopped laughing all weekend.....even when a cheeky seagull ate Mae's ice cream outside Caernarfon castle (she wasn't laughing at that point !)
You've both worked so hard to create a wonderful holiday experience that you'll make precious memories for everyone who visits .
Lots of love and hugs and a huge thank you
Craig, Louise and Gregor
Pen Hendre has been a perfect escape from busy life back home! You guys have literally thought of everything to create a beautiful and relaxing break, your hard work shows in this fantastic holiday home.
The board games got plenty of use especially when storm Doris hit. Calum loves all the toys in 'his room' that he didn't need to play with any he brought with him.
We've made so many memories here at Pen Hendre and it's the perfect location to visit all attractions.<br>
We will definitely be returning!
Love and thanks
