  • "Quirky accommodation."

    Very clean and comfortable with a lot of thought gone into making a great stay. If there had been a washing machine it would have been perfect. *bottom tray in fridge door loose *gas smell around the fire *benefit from room thermostat to regulate heating throughout the property/saving on fuel consumption too

  • "I never stayed there and know that you relet the property and never gave me any money back."

    Considering I never used any of the gas or electric or water I find this disgraceful

  • "The cottage is a perfect location to explore this area of North Wales."

    Spotlessly clean on arrival, cosy and comfortable. It has a quirky layout but that adds to it's charm. Yes it's on a main road but the traffic noise is not intrusive. There are some great walks from the front door along the Wales costal path. Supermarket and town within easy walking distance. Only slight issue is the lack of a freezer or freezer compartment in fridge. Owners might consider putting a small freezer in the utility area behind the kitchen. Would definitely stay again.

  • "Gas fire didn't work."

    They sent a plumber who said it was fine but it still didn't work. Took ages to sort with varying instructions. Have owned and operated similar fires previously with no problem. No washing machine or outside drying facilities (unless you make your own washing line) Noisy location (traffic noise) Strange layout (would be better if they relocated the bathroom to the second bedroom and marketed as a one bed property maybe with a sofa bed in the lounge and turn current bathroom into a downstairs loo/utility) Dining room was nice but too far from kitchen meaning trips up and down narrow stairs constantly. Outside space is nice but never gets the sun and too small. Bed too soft and pillows are not great. Overall disappointing - we don't mean to be too critical but are used to better accommodation at this price.

  • "Lovely little cottage, ideal for exploring the Llyn Peninsula."

    The road outside was very busy with traffic. There was a lovely sun room upstairs for dining however, that would have been an ideal room for lounging in if there were comfortable chairs available to sit on. If you are staying at this cottage during peak season, ensure to book any restaurants well in advance as all the best restaurants were booked up when I enquired 2 weeks in advance. All the restaurants in Abersoch are also closed on a Monday. Would definately recommend Tremfan Hall at Llanbedrog (10minutes away by car) - one of the best lunches I've ever had!!!

  • "Owl Cottage proved to offer the least value for money out of the 3 properties that we stayed in during a 9 night trip around the Lynn Peninsula and Snowdonia."

    Whilst the advertised description of the property being located on the outskirts of Pwllheli was correct, it is a long walk to the town centre. The shower room and wc was very cramped and lacked ventilation, and there was a fly problem. There was only one cupboard in the main bedroom, the door to which was extremely hard to open/close. The kitchen lacked a freezer capability, either as a compartment in the fridge or standalone, which was not helpful in the hot weather.

  • "Convenient to all the places we wanted to visit."

    Lovely cottage only negative criticism would be all the rubbish on the front yard. Overflowing rubbish boxes, etc.This area needs a good clean up . Otherwise no problems.

  • "The cottage was perfect for us."

    It ticked all the boxes. It would have been handy to have a washing machine but other than that I couldn’t fault the cottage.

The property

Nestled on the outskirts of Pwllheli market town is this quirky terraced cottage, Owl Cottage is ideal for a small group gathering or a couple looking to explore seaside excitement around the Llyn Peninsula.

Stepping through the property, be charmed by the characterful sitting room on the ground floor, boasting a feel of a ski chalet, admire the rustic oak beams and exposed stone walling as you settle in for an evening in front of the Smart TV whilst the fire takes the central stage.

From here, find a sleek ground-floor shower room, fitted with a glorious walk-in shower which benefits from a rainfall head where you can unwind after an adventurous day.

Continuing to impress is the compact kitchen space, amply-equipped and covering all the necessities for you to whip up your best home-cooking during your stay.

Climb the stairs to find a double and a single bedroom, both well-presented with attractive décor and plenty of storage for your belongings.

Head up a few steps towards the welcoming living/dining room, offering up a homely spot to enjoy your meals over a bottle of wine as you look out the airy double doors to the rear garden, where a bistro-style table and chairs offer an alternative dining arrangement during the summer months.

If you don’t fancy cooking for the evening, head out to the local pub just a short walk away, or delve further into the vibrant town of Pwllheli where you'll find a wide range of dining options, interesting cuisines and local delicacies alongside an abundance of shops and supermarket to keep your cupboards stocked.

Explore your surroundings and walk over to the marina where you can spot boats heading in and out to sea, or pack your beach bag for a relaxing day on the nearby sandy beach, and if you're feeling adventurous, try your luck at thrilling watersports.

For a truly unique experience, book onto a coastal cruise and enjoy an amazing tour of the Llyn Peninsula around Cardigan Bay and the Irish Sea, spotting glimpses of sea life including seals, seabirds and dolphins.

Abersoch is a mere stone’s throw away for even more seaside fun and historic attractions, whilst Criccieth is home to a medieval castle which was once home to the Welsh prince Llywelyn the Great.

Discover unmatched beauty throughout the Snowdonia National Park further afield, boasting a plethora of adventure activities, walking trails, and cycling routes, as well as must-see attractions at Mount Snowdon, and Zip World Slate Caverns.

In distance to the marvelous Isle of Anglesey and unique resorts of Porthmadog and Portmeirion, Owl Cottage is the perfect base for a fun-filled escape.
