Beautiful well appointed house, ideal for family gatherings

5 of 5
We loved our stay in this fabulous house! Comfy beds, well equipped kitchen, really social sitting areas. Just a very short walk to all the amenities of Abersoch, 5 mins walk from beautiful beach. We walked down the beach to Mickeys boatyard cafe, which is well worth a visit.

5 of 5
Loved our week at Arwel, the cottage is done to a very high standard with everything you need. The enclosed garden was really lovely, ideal for children and pets. The stream that runs along the bottom of the garden is a lovely therapeutic sound, so very relaxing. The Bara Brith cake was a nice welcome too. The beach hut is excellent, we didn’t get chance to use it as that part doesn’t allow dogs although we did have a walk up when it was quiet just to check it out, could see that it would help make a lovely holiday perfect. The beach is lovely, just five minutes walk from the cottage, the sunsets are amazing. Would highly recommend Arwel and are hoping very much to return.
