Very spacious and well equipped cottage at a great location

5 of 5
We really enjoyed staying at the very clean and tastefully decorated Gwyndy Canol cottage, and it was a pleasure to deal with the very caring owner! We had everything we needed: cleaning items were easy to locate, plenty of hooks in the bathrooms, good mattresses, a place to leave our shoes and coats - all things that we missed in some previous cottages we stayed in. On top of that it was easy to explore the whole Llyn peninsula from here but also to reach Snowdonia or Anglesey. This side of the peninsula is also sunnier than the northern side, so in short, this is the perfect starting point for a successful holiday!
