The beautiful cottage Y Boncyn has recently been restored to the highest standard and was perfect for our family holiday there. Every detail had been thought of from the incredibly comfortable beds, luxury linens, fabulous fluffy towels (beach towels also provided) to the kitchen supplied with everything required (induction hob, oven, microwave, fridge/freezer...) even including some original Portmerion coffee cups. The living area has some extremely comfortable sofas and the window seat was much used, a perfect spot for reading looking out over the garden and view. There is free internet and a TV with on-demand for when the weather is not so enticing. Beautiful paintings, artwork and other interesting pictures adorn the walls and the bookshelves were full of interesting books.
Athough we didn't use the BBQ, we were lucky enough with the weather to enjoy a couple of meals outside in the garden. Being able to walk straight from the cottage into the countryside was an added plus.
The cottage is well located meaning that we could get to the Ffestiniog railway, Black Rock Sands, Moelwyns and many other favourite haunts without having to drive far.
Cannot recommend this cottage highly enough and will definitely be booking again soon.
This is a beautiful, newly converted cottage in tranquil and secluded surroundings. It is the perfect place to relax and de-stress, and is well suited to a romantic break, a family holiday or a holiday for two couples. I would definitely take my 3 young children there, and would consider it to be child friendly.
The decor is very tasteful and it feels more like a stylish home-from-home than a holiday let. The cottage is extremely well equipped and comfortable.
The location is excellent for exploring Snowdonia and the Lleyn Peninsula, with the nearest beach a 5 minute drive away and Snowdon 17 miles away. It is situated equi-distant between Criccieth and Porthmadog, with plenty of local amenities.
I have stayed at the two 'sister' cottages, Tyn Llech and Hebog Back, a total of nine times since 2012. They are all lovely cottages, but I think Y Boncyn is my favourite. They are all of an exceptional standard for a holiday let and are highly recommended.
Tamar (admin) and Viv (housekeeper) provide a very efficient and excellent service. Viv is particularly attentive in maintaining the cottages to a high standard.
I will definitely be returning.
