Please find below a selection of self catering holiday cottages to rent in Criccieth, Wales.
Criccieth is a delightful seaside town on the Llyn Peninsula,
blessed with a south facing, sunny aspect across Cardigan Bay. This
naturally sheltered location, combined with a special
micro-climate, brings visitors year round.
The resort is somewhat split by Criccieth Castle, casting a
magical glow as it rises up from a rocky outcrop. To the east, a
long esplanade lines the main sand and shingle beach, with
cafés at either end, while the western beach is overall
Relaxing days take various forms. Catching some rays down on the
sands, building castles or hunting shrimps. Learning how to
windsurf or catching mackerel. Exploring the Coastal Path over to
Black Rock Sands; or along to Llanystumdwy, home to the Lloyd
George Museum. Walking up the short, steep path to Criccieth Castle
- the views are superb! The exhibition centre at the main entrance
is worth investigating too, as is the local Heritage Trail.
What else? There's an 18-hole golf course with amazing sea
and mountain vistas, as well as a number of attractions within
walking distance - a pony trekking centre, fishing lake and the
Plas Talhenbont Hall Wildlife Park.
Most of our Criccieth cottage holidaymakers do a spot of
self-catering and there's no shortage of shops, including a
local butcher's and deli. When you fancy a night off, there are
restaurants and takeaways - not forgetting an award-winning
ice-cream parlour and coffee house, open 'til late evening in
summer with weekly jazz nights.
So, whether it's a short winter break or a long stay in
summer, our Criccieth cottages deserve a look.
