    • “A great holiday”

    • “Lovely convenient apartment, no complaints at all. We only used the car once all week, plenty of walking from the door and shops and pubs right on the doorstep. I have been visiting aberdaron since 1958 and I love it so I am biased but it is a lovely holiday centre.”

    • “Received excellant service from owner, who lived next door. Sea front was very convenient to reach. Small friendly community with shops, pubs and cafes local and close by. Plenty of walks around the coast. Great place for children.”

    • “We stayed at Hen Blas with our two children ages 9 and 5 and our jack Russell. We loved the location, a stones throw from the beach and a lovely outlook onto the river, bridge and pretty village of Aberdaron. The apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed including towels and toiletries. We enjoyed our free breakfast that was arranged with the holiday and Alun the owner was most helpfully and a great host. We had many meals in the Ship hotel next door which Is run by the same team and the food was excellent. You really don't need to go anywhere else whist on holiday here, everything is on your doorstep!”

    • “Cosy, comfortable and welcoming in the perfect spot”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The setting is spot on - beside a stream, next door to the pub and one minute from the Blue Flag beach in the pretty seaside hamlet of Aberdaron. The flat above Hen Blas cafe was welcoming and comfortable. It is clean and very well equipped with pans, crockery, utensils etc and they even supplied cling film, kitchen, roll and foil as well as some "tupperware". The flat is "higgledy piggledy" with lots of character and a woodburner, but it is certainly not "posh": some of the decor is scuffed and the furniture is comfortable rather than smart. However, you can take your dog and relax without worrying too much about the furniture etc. I would definitely recommend this accommodation to people wanting a relaxing holiday with their dog, espercially as dogs are allowed at both ends of the beach.”

    • “We had a fabulous week staying here in aberdaron. The property was lovely and clean and had everything we needed. The key holder was great and very helpful It was a super location and the only slight downside was the lack of outside space and parking. Nevertheless, I would recommend this property.”
