  • "Loved the house."

    It was very well equipped and the downstairs kitchen and living areas were excellent. The fabulous collection of Duplo was particularly enjoyed by our grandson. A collection of adult games such as Scrabble, trivial pursuit and local guide books would be an asset to the house. The bathrooms were excellent apart from the downstairs toilet seat which slipped around when sat on and has been previously mentioned in a review as needing fixing. The showers were very good hot and powerful. The bedrooms were all a good size. The bed in the main room was comfortable. One bed has a standalone frame surround which has missing slats at the bed head end and rocks around noisily and alarmingly. Another bed has a fixed metal bed head which creaks with every turn. However our main issue was the very thin curtains which blocked very little light from the moon or sun. Also the road noise. If there had been thick curtains or blinds we would have rated the accommodation higher. Luckily we had taken a blackout blind for the toddler room not so lucky for the adults. Outside space is as described. House is very well placed for access to beaches and town.

  • "It was spotless and had everything you need for a self catering holiday The welcome and service was second to none, 5* without a doubt."

    You can tell the quality thought and you can tell the love that has been going into making our stay welcoming. Truly a home from home. The additional personal touches and kindness was really appreciated. Having holidayed for over 50 years a child and now grandmother. This holiday let is certainly on a par with the let in Nefyn we returned to for over 35 years until the wonderful couple Olwyn and Thomas retired. This is the very first time as a family been based in Pwllheli, and definitely wont be the last. We've had a delightful holiday and will be returning for the foreseeable and I dare say for the future generations to come. Thank you See you next year.

    Only thing to repair is in the downstairs toilet seat (the ring) which is not staying in one place while sitting on it.

  • "What a fab find."

    Perfect location just a few mins from the centre of Pwllheli. We stayed as a family of 8 . Property is immaculate and really well equipped and spotlessly clean. Would highly recommend this for a large group. Rooms are well appointed and the facilities are excellent. There was plenty of room for everyone and the garden was great to sit out and eat in and the kids had loads of room to play.

    Great location to the nearest Pwllheli beach, and other local attractions too such as Porth Neigwl, Nefyn etc. Parking space is spacious, house is spacious and comfortable for what we need after hours of driving to reach Pwllheli. Contact person has been very helpful and responsive to any of our queries, and so welcoming. I would not hesitate to come and stay here again in the future.

  • "A great well equipped modern and spacious house with 4 large comfortable double rooms a modern stylish bathroom and downstairs shower room, Modern spacious kitchen with large American fridge freezer."

    Utility room with. Washer dryer and microwave. Large seperate dining room and lounge. Carris the property manager is very friendly and helpful and is on the end of a phone, lives locally and responds quickly to any requests The house is five minutes walk from the centre of Pwhelli and Lidl Asda and an amazing Spar. There is a large safe enclosed garden to the front with a swing ideal for young children. The home is an ideal base for exploring the Lyn Peninsular with lots of great beaches and attractions within 30 min drive. Pwllheli has 2 safe Sandy beaches, short drive to Abersoch and Criccieth and 25 mins to Porthmadog and Welsh Highland Railway which is great for young kids. The house is on a main road to the front which is busy. The windows in the house block out the road noise but if you are a light sleeper it might be problematic in hot weather if you need to sleep with windows open. The Whitehall in town serves great food, the Jewel in the Crown is a good Indian and Allporrs is a nice Fish and chip shop, there is a great fishmongers next to the Spar which also has live lobster and dry aged steak in a special fridge. The house is very airy and remains cool in hot weather. We had a great stay would definitely return.

The property

Glan Aber is an impressive, detached house sitting close to the North Wales coast in Pwllheli, Gwynedd.

In the Llŷn Peninsula Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this contemporary dwelling sleeps up to eight guests in four bedrooms and suits families, friends and couples hoping to explore breath-taking beaches, countryside, and Snowdonia National Park.

Arriving at your home-from-home you'll find off-road parking to unload your luggage and step inside the bright entrance hall.

Sure to please the designated chef, the open-plan living space has a well-equipped kitchen, finished to a high standard with an electric oven and hob, plenty of preparation space, and a large fridge/freezer.

This sociable space also has a breakfast bar for two and a sitting area with two leather sofas to relax with a hot beverage.

On summer days, open the bi-fold doors to let the outside in, and why not dine al fresco in your private, enclosed garden?

There's plenty of lawn space and a swing set for little ones to play, whilst the adults relax in the sunshine.

Back inside, more dining space awaits in the living/dining room with a table for six and a table for two, along with traditional furnishings, a gas fire, wall-mounted TV, and cushioned seats for you to unwind after the day's adventures.

The ground floor also has a utility with a washing machine and tumble dryer, as well as a ground-floor shower room, so you can freshen up with ease after busy beach days.

The four double rooms are upstairs, all thoughtfully appointed with storage space, and one with a TV.

The bedrooms are served by a contemporary bathroom with a sleek finish where you can relax in the bath or rinse in the walk-in shower, whilst your towel warms on the heated rail.

When it's time to explore, Pwllheli is an excellent base for touring North Wales; play a game or two at Clwb Golff Pwllheli, stroll the golden sands of Traeth Marian-y-de, and explore the picturesque marina with plenty of shops and restaurants to choose from.

A haven for surfers and swimmers, Abersoch is close by with three beautiful beaches, whether you want to relax or try your hand at watersports.

Porth Neigwl is another idyllic beach nearby for sunbathing and admiring the scenery and is overlooked by the National Trust's Plas yn Rhiw, a 16th-century manor house with formal gardens.

A little further along lies Aberdaron, a charming little village with traditional cafes, bakery, and the historic St Hywyn's Church, as well as Traeth Aberdaron and coastal walks to spot local bird life.

More history awaits at Criccieth with the fascinating Castell Criccieth, whilst the bustling Porthmadog offers scenic routes on the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways through pastures and forests.

The Italianate village of Portmeirion is another unique, must-visit, or if you're looking for outdoor adventures, Snowdonia National Park is within reach for breath-taking hikes, Zip World Llechwedd, and the Ceunant Llennyrch National Nature Reserve.
