I had a peaceful and relaxing break, enjoying walks in the countryside and trips to local beaches, heritage sites and beauty spots. I found the cottage and garden attractive and very comfortable for the price, and the woodland area on the owners' land was a lovely feature. The cottage was immaculately clean, and the owners were welcoming and clearly communicated the essential information about my stay.

Mr P,

Nythfa is a wonderful place to enjoy a relaxing retreat, away from it all and yet a few minutes drive to lovely places like Criccieth and not much further to the Welsh Highland Gateway town of Porthmadog. The Llyn Peninsula is a very special part of north west Wales. The very friendly and hospitable owners have created a very comfortable space to enjoy the beautiful nature which surrounds the cottage. Inside, the cottage is well-equipped and very comfortable, with its own private garden. There are acres of nature reserve quality walks to enjoy just down the lane from the cottage. Highly recommended.

Mr B,
