Superb holiday properties. We have stayed in magnificent homes with jaw dropping views. Excellent attention to detail and customer service. S Townes - 19th August 2018
Our stay at Bodrydd was wonderful. The property was immaculate and the owners have thought of everything you might need. The pool was great and the fishing lakes were well used by our party. Thank you very much.Mrs C Rollins - 6th August 2018
Can’t believe how beautiful the property and grounds were. The house was really spacious and it had everything to make us feel at home. Becky the housekeeper was lovely and made sure we were happy with our stay. Couldn’t fault a thing, would definitely go back!!!Laura from Wirral - 10th July 2018
Absolutely lovely property. The house was amazing and the gardens. We were a party of 12 adults and absolutely loved the house, and the surroundings. We even looked to see if it was free for Christmas!! Becky the house keeper was so lovely and helpful and welcomed us when we arrived, keep up the good work as it was absolutely brilliant and we would love to return or book another Best of wales break soon. We walked into Aberdaron (and back) and had lunch in Gwesty Ty Neuadd, which again was lovely, the sun was out and we sat on the balcony watching everyone on the beach.Sarah from Powys - 9th May 2018
The house is lovely and contains everything you could possibly need, huge kitchen, pool & seating inside & outside, we didn't get to use parts of the house as it was so big! I would definitely like to return in the near future.Emma from Wigan - 25th April 2018
Never been to a better holiday home - absolutely fantastic property, grounds and location. This is the most amazing holiday home. This was our second visit and we will definitely be back. Beautiful beaches very close by, lovely, safe and quiet location. Best holiday home for larger groups - we have three generations of family that go each year and thoroughly enjoy it. Best of Wales staff very helpful whenever we have contacted.Vivien from Shropshire - 8th April 2018
Everything about the property was excellent. The property was of a very high standard and met all our expectations. Mr S Wilkinson - 16th November 2017
This property lives up to its 5 star rating. It has all those extra's that you wish you could have in your own home. The kitchen is the star of the show and the whole family would gather there after the evening meal to play games or just for a cup of tea and a natter. It is our second visit this year and we will be looking to book it again in the future.Mrs E Davies - 6th November 2017
One of the best holiday lets we have been to, something for all the ages of our family. Very helpful housekeeper(Becky) Family breakfasts at Morfa Nefyn cafe, Whistling Sands and Aberdaron beaches. Great fishing in the lakes.Ian from Lancashire - 28th August 2017
The house was beyond amazing, every comfort had been thought of.
The views were incredible, it was perfect, thank you. We also enjoyed Zipworld, it is a fantastic experience!Helen and Family - 9th August 2017
A fantastic, luxury property that is absolutely like a home not a rental. Great space for everybody and great spaces to use for all sorts of different purposes.
Recommendations: Hell's Mouth Beach - try to park on the small car park at the Aberdaron end and take the footpath down the cliff. Aberdaron. Eat out at Gwesty Ty Newydd.Family from Stoke-on-trent - 6th June 2017
We stayed at Bodrydd, a most amazing property. Equipment and fitting better than any previous holiday let we have ever stayed in. Went as a big family group with ages 7/8 years to 21/22 years and this accommodated us better than we could have ever wished for. Was three generations - ourselves, two daughters and their husbands and our four grandchildren. Was a fabulous holiday had by all.
We visited several beaches during our stay but Porthor (Whistling Sands) - only 15mins away, was our favourite also the Rabbit Farm just outside Criccieth was a favourite of the children. Market at Pwllheli is also worth a visit. Too many lovely villages and towns to mention in one.Vivien from Telford, Shropshire. - 22nd April 2017
