  • "We are not dog owners ourselves but knew the house is dog friendly and this was evident on our arrival, we believe the strong aroma was coming from the bean bag dog bed,would suggest something washable."

    All a matter of opinion but found the main bed uncomfortable and the couches have definately seen better days. House overall very clean and everything for our stay was provided and welcoming, great locaton. We had a good stay but unlikely to return. Would question the 4.9 rating.Some updating could earn another rating "tick"

  • "The property is in an excellent position ideal for visiting surrounding places."

    Facilities all good, for longer stays it may benefit from having a washing machine particularly for people visiting with children. Cafe next door ideal if you don’t want to cook yourself.Local pub a short walk away that offers good food and will allow dogs in. On the whole a good property with parking would easily stay again.

  • "The cottage very much excelled our expectations in every way, bearing in mind it was a dog friendly cottage, which in our experience has previously been an excuse for poor cleanliness, we were pleasantly surprised."

    We could not have been happier with the cottage or how dog friendly it was for our 2 dogs, although we had brought as always dog bedding/bowls /towels etc, it was lovely to see that these also were provided although not needed. We all felt like it was a home from home and were sad to leave. We couldn’t have asked for more, A beautiful cottage, that was well equipped and in a fabulous setting! Would definitely recommend and Will def be returning next year.

    There’s a lovely view at the front especially if you like watching the boats go by. Very well equipped, clean and comfortable. Can recommend the café next door especially the all day breakfast. Car parking easy once we realised it was the space between the cottage and the cafe. Would definitely book again if we’re in the area.

  • "Had a great few days at this cottage."

    We booked very last minute, but the process was very easy, the app gave us all the info we required. The cottage was as described, very clean, everything you needed was in the cottage, lovely location right on the harbour. There’s a cafe next door that we used. There’s a great Tapas restaurant across the road, we went twice. There’s a local shop and pub within walking distance. We took our dog, and he loved the local walks. Only negative was early in the morning the noise from outside, deliveries to the cafe next door, bins being emptied or the peacock across the harbour that woke us up every morning (none of this could be controlled by the cottage owner) But it didn’t stop our enjoyment!

    It’s in a great location for exploring this part of beautiful Wales. The village itself has really great places to eat. We tried the Thai restaurant, the local pub and the cafe next door, all fantastic and everyone so friendly. A trip up Snowdon on the Railway is a lovely day out as is a visit to Beaumaris, a beautiful town. The beaches at Newborough are absolutely fantastic too, not forgetting the wonderful Snowdonian National Park. So many fantastic places.

The property

20 Porth Y Llechen is a delightful cottage resting in the village of Y Felinheli.

Sitting peacefully on the beautiful Menai Strait, this charismatic cottage is the ideal location for families or groups of four, who are seeking an exciting expedition to the northwest of Wales.

Step inside the homely hallway where you can place down your bags and take off your coats before making your way through to the restful sitting room.

Sink into the plush leather sofas and turn on the TV as you relax following a thrilling journey to the cottage and watch from the window as boats bob in the marina across the way.

Head into the sociable kitchen/dining space, brightly painted with greens and finished with a dark mahogany dining table and well-fitted kitchen units hosting an array of handy appliances such as a dishwasher, so there's no need to worry who will be cleaning the dishes tonight.

Wander through the sliding patio doors into the garden and take a seat at the outdoor table where you can sip on a refreshing beverage as you bask in the sunshine on a sunny afternoon.

Carry your bags up to the first floor and discover two charming bedrooms where you can lay your head to rest at the end of the evening.

Discover a spacious double bed in the first of the bedrooms with pretty oak furniture and a vanity unit where you can take your time to prepare for the day ahead.

The second of the bedrooms features two single beds and is perfect for those looking to share with a friend or escape the excitement for some piece and quiet as they settle on one of the beds with an enthralling book.

Across the hall lies an airy family bathroom that has been decorated with bright blue hues and clean white tiles, complete with a contemporary bathtub, basin and WC.

Cross the waters to Llanfairpwllgwyngyll and visit the magnificent Plas Newydd House with it's well-kept grounds, before heading to Plas Cadnat Hidden Gardens or enjoying a Ribride down the Menai Strait.

Take a woodland walk through Greenwood family park or hop in the car and venture to Carnedd Llewelyn for a scenic hike.
