The cottage was stunning, tastefully decorated and very clean. Our children enjoyed playing hide and seek all over the cottage and got into many nooks and crannies and didn't have an ounce of dust on them! We visited the usual places of Caernarfon and Snowdon exploring the great outdoors of North Wales. Our holiday was perfect.Emily from St Clears - 2nd May 2017
Had a great weekend away. First time on the Llyn Peninsula. Nia made us so welcome with tea and cake and lots of great advice on places to visit both for walking and eating. The cottage was spacious, very clean and cosy and in a quiet location with easy access to all parts of the peninsula. A great find! Saw seals off the coast of Morfa Nefyn. Great pub Ty Coch Inn on the sandSpencer Family from Cheshire - 15th November 2016
Welcoming. Cottage well equipped, comfortable and very dog friendly and local vet is excellent. Eating out is good and varied but you need a car. Large number of beaches but not all dog friendly. Lots of walks but some footpaths over grown so be prepared. Stay was great, helped by the weather,nothing else would have made it any better.Gus from Lockerbie - 25th June 2016
Relaxing trip in a beautiful cottage with all mod cons. The owners have made every effort with the decoration and facilities to make it conformable and stylish. Kitchen well equipped with all you could need. Lovely beach towns such as Abersoch and Aberdaron. Not far from Anglesey which is well worth a visit. Overall everything perfect, down to the little tented bedroom which my friends' daughter loved.Anne and Family - 30th March 2016
