We (2 families) had a fantastic week in this property over New Year. The view over the estuary, from the house being up the hill slightly, made each morning, when I opened the curtains. We then walked the dog and children along the beach, around the coast to explore all the hidden coves. A coffee at the cafe after a walk was very welcome.
We appreciated having 2 lounges, as it allowed the children to play in one and the adults to chat in another. Having the Wii in the second lounge was a big hit. The house was extremely well equipped. I think it was the first time I have been to a property and found nothing lacking in terms of kitchen equipment.
Something else we really appreciated was the lack of bossy notices!! Often properties have notices all over the place saying things like "Please don't...this and that"! The owners of this property seem to allow you to use your common sense and don't spoil the house with endless notices. A breathe of fresh air. There is however a very informative folder about the property and local attractions.
We stayed pretty local although we did climb Snowdon. Couldn't believe that all that beautiful mountain scenery was so close by. We were lucky in that we climbed on a clear day and the views from the top were splendid. We visited Criccieth and its castle. Amazing views over the still sea. We walked to Porthmadoc along by the harbour. So quick and easy to access all the shops and other services we needed. We also went to Portmeirion which is quite a quirky place but worth a visit.
All in all a brilliant stay in a perfect house.
