Lovely accommodation and owners. Great location to explore North Wales. We had a fantastic time on the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway, visits to Harlech Castle and Caernarfon Castle. There are great beaches close by Criccieth/Porthmadog and Llyn Peninsula. Despite the drizzling rain all weekend it soon cleared off and fun time had by all.

Management response:

Thank you all for the great review. We were really pleased you had a good time despite the weather. Hope to see you again. Warmest regards

We had a wonderful time. The children loved and and felt extremely welcome. We've stayed in several places in Criccieth and this had to be the best yet!

About the neighbourhood
Criccieth, the Pearl of Wales on the shores of Snowdonia...really has got it all...castle, sea, sand, mountains, wonderful ice cream, quaint shops and lovely pubs. It is also a fabulous central base for touring the Llyn Peninsular and all it has to offer or the awesome Snowdonia National Park.
Golf courses are in every direction. New exciting attractions to add to the old favourites are literally everywhere and some of the best walks in the country are right here.
A truly inspiring infrastructure of local food producers, micro breweries in abundance and vineyards all on the doorstep gives all Foodies and Beer Buffs a real 'Sense of Place'. You might just think you are in Heaven! Croeso.....
How to get there
Travelling from Criccieth centre on the B4411 towards Caernarfon, turn left after Regent Garage at the brown sign for the Fisheries coming up the hill. Continue along this road (Arvonia Terrace) until it divides into two single track lanes. Take the right lane. We are the first property you come to. We are on the left.
Travelling from Llanystumdwy (Sat Nav normally brings you in this way). Go past the school and then church both on your left. Go over the bridge and take the immediate left. This is a narrow lane. Continue for approximately 2/3rds mile. We are at the top of the hill on your right.
