  • "Lovely clean cottage with a good view from the top of the 3 tiered garden."

    Good location, a short walk up the road to Harlech Castle where there is also a couple of restaurants, bakers and good fish and chip shop. About a 25 minute walk to Harlech's beautiful beach. We really enjoyed our stay here.

  • "We stayed Oct 2021 for 3 nights for my wife's birthday."

    Exceptional property and a wonderful trip. The standard of the decor and furnishings were superb and the use of the log burner (and inclusion of provisions to get going) was a real bonus. My daughter particularly enjoyed the luxurious sofa and the very effective wifi!!. Pre-trip communications with Paul the owner were very helpful and very much appreciated. Great views over the Llyn peninsula from the tiered garden. Overall, couldn't have asked for anymore from the property or the very friendly owners. Harlech is a beautiful town and we recommend a visit of the castle and also dinner at castle bistro, which again was exceptional. Thank you very much.

  • "We had a wonderful week at Nyth Bran."

    The cottage is perfectly situated on the edge of Harlech such that we began most days with a walk along the stunning beach. The beautifully kept garden and garden room afford sone stunning views of the incredible countryside and castle. Inside, the cottage is excellently equipped, super comfy and immaculate! Days included quad biking at Dragon Raiders, mountain biking in Beddgelert, golf at St David’s and sailing in Porthmadog. Overall, an extremely memorable trip - we’ll definitely be back!
