    • “Fantastic cottage in a great location = a fab family holiday!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The cottage was clean, well equipped, quaint and in a fantastic location. The local shops (the ice cream shop in Harlech is a must) and beach are within easy reach. We had a fantastic family holiday the week we stayed in Derlwyn. Shell Island, Ynys and Porthmadog are all worth a visit too. I'd definately recommend a stay at Derlwyn.”

    • “What a gem”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Never having been to this area before, we were truly surprised. Lovely village, although it must get really busy in summer. The cottage has a fantastic situation, is compact and comfortable; although more logs or information on where to get them would have been of benefit. Hints: parking is a challenge if you aren't used to tight squeezes; perhaps the owners should approach the council for weekly tickets to ease the way.”

The cottage had everything we needed and we enjoyed the wood log burner. Excellent walking in the area, the imposing castle and a couple of restaurants in town made our week extremely enjoyable.”
