We are really pleased that we happened across this holiday home . As per other reviews we were wowed by the house and its location . We had a week of perfectly sunny weather.
A few things about the area . The beaches are great with nice warm water, rock pools and also a great stretch of sand toward Black Rock . The small town is well services with a good fish a chip shop, ice cream shop, bakery, butchers etc . Everyone very friendly.
Next door to the home is Dylan's restaurant. Very good menu in a nice Art Deco building . They did take out for us one night . We also used it just for the nice bar .
Local to the town are all the areas of Snowdonia that oh would want to visit . We did Zip World and also went up Snowden.
The home itself is fantastic and is just as described . Lovely and airy , light and with all the mod cons of a newly built property. The kids loved being able to run out of the door and directly into the sea . We liked the balcony and watching all of the sea activities , the views and were impressed one night by a pod of dolphins.
In short we will be back .
We stayed at Ty Traeth in early August 2017 having researched rental properties in the region for quite some time. The house was truly exceptional and was the most well equipped we have ever stayed in. The communication with the owners before hand was great and nothing was too much trouble - they even researched places to go mackerel fishing for us. The location, on the esplanade in Criccieth, was perfect, one minute to the beach which was great for our two young boys and for sunset BBQ s. In addition, proximity to Dylan's bar/restaurant, the best in town was a welcome bonus!
There were two huge double rooms and a smaller single on the ground floor and then upstairs to a huge open plan space with brilliant kitchen, dining area, lounge and balcony looking out onto the sea. I can genuinely say that every tiny detail you could possibly ask for had been thought of in advance - even down to a net and crab bucket for the kids.
As a base to explore North Wales and in particular the Lleyn peninsula and Snowdonia - I really don't think anywhere comes close. If you are thinking of booking - don't hesitate, just do it!
I stayed here with my Dad last month. Booking was easy and the owners are so quick to reply to any questions. The house is one of the nicest we have stayed in, so spacious and comfortable. The views from the balcony were wonderful and just sitting inside or outside watching the sea is so relaxing. Definitely the most well equipped holiday home we have stayed in and have had many self catering breaks over the years. The beaches, castle and Criccieth village are lovely, some nice coffee shops and Castle chip shop is very popular, I met a friend for lunch at Dylan's and that was a lovely setting and quality food (they cater for all tastes including vegan)
We visited lots of places but loved the steam railway to Canaerfon and Portmerion.
The whole house was so clean - you have a fantastic housekeeper! Comfortable bedrooms and luxury bathrooms. We will definitely be back to this super holiday house.
(If anyone needs any information on where to eat and shop for vegan food in the area feel free to message me)
A good location for seeing the area ,never get tired of views from the balcony ,5* accommodation,will return again
Property was immaculate and very well equipped. We have stayed in many good holiday lets, but my husband said this was the best. Praise indeed.
The accommodation is of first class standard and well thought out to take in the most of the amazing view - you just can't beat that view on a sunny day. Within a stones throw of the beach and the town everything you need is well within reach. The owners, Graham and Jane had thought of everything and it felt like home immediately. I would highly recommend this holiday rental and the location.
