A wonderful property in an exceptional location

5 of 5
We stayed at Tirwyddan with our children and friends. We were very impressed with the property. The house is well maintained and it is furnished and decorated to a high standard. We believe that the location is superb. Everything is within walking distance and the property is positioned in a lovely elevated spot that allowed us to benefit from the stunning sea views. There are pretty gardens to the front and rear of the property which allows the children ample space to run around. The master bedroom, with its own balcony, provides the perfect quiet spot to enjoy a book and the view. We ate outside most evenings, taking advantage of the BBQ and generous decked area. This property certainly feels spacious. We were two families of four and it never felt cramped. I would totally recommend this property and we will certainly be visiting again soon. It really is a home from home and it is well presented with a lovely feel about it.

A well-equipped, cosy and tastefully decorated character cottage, spacious with garden and parking

5 of 5
We had a lovely time staying in this beautiful holiday cottage on the Llyn Peninsula which is a tastefully furnished and decorated home from home. Although an old property, formally a part of the village hotel, it has been very thoughtfully modernised and decorated to the highest of standards. The village itself is quiet but I can recommend a visit to the David Lloyd-George museum and The Feathers pub. Cricceith is a pleasant walk away along the coastal path which has some fantastic views and here you will find the famous ice-cream shop and popular fish and chip establishment. Go on a Thursday evening at 6.15pm to see the lifeboat and its crew go out on training. The cottage is a great base to travel in all directions within the Smowdonia National Park and lovely to return to each evening. Books, games and puzzles are in plentiful supply and the welcome goodies were a very thoughtful extra provided by the accommodating owner. We are already planning a return visit in the not too distant future, perhaps a little later in the year when we will be able to enjoy sitting in the garden at the rear of the property on balmy evenings.
