  • "Had a fantastic week with great weather."

    Cottage is in a perfect location in the heart of the village. Cottage was very clean and had everything we needed inclusive of the sun loungers and gas bbq.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay at Pen Y Bont and are hoping to return again and again."

    The people of Aberdaron and the area we visited made us feel very welcome indeed, which I think makes for a very enjoyable holiday. We fell in love with Pen Y Bont and the Llyn Peninsula. Thank you to Ian and Wilma for their warm welcome too. Joe, Craig and Rita.

  • "Only one thought."

    The property had two ‘fridges. I’d be happier with just the one fridge with ice box and replace the one next to the washing machine with a dishwasher.

  • "Just returned from a fabulous holiday staying in Pen y Bont in Aberdaron."

    Set in the centre of the village within a minutes walk to the beach. Its always a pleasant place to stay, clean and well maintained to a high standard. We have been returning a few times over the years, so its nice to see the owners have been putting money back into the property. A new walk in shower with rain head is amazing. The paved patio round the back is much better too. Plus New TV , Microwave and dining sets. Safe to say we will be returning.

  • "Aberdaron is a wonderful spot, and this cottage is in the heart of the village."

    It is so good to not have to use the car for a week. A spotlessly clean cottage with all the amenities, and most definitely room for 6, we will be back and we will bring all the family.

    Scenery was breathtaking. Had a lovely meal at Ty Newydd. Couldn’t have been more convenient as it was over the road from the shop.

    House is spacious and has almost everything you need for a week away. Internet can be intermittent but not the end of the world. This was our second year here and we have booked again for next year!

  • "We greatly enjoyed our holiday in Aberdaron, the cottage was in a perfect location (a stone's throw from the beach) and excellent fish and chip shop!"

    The cottage had all the facilities we could require and the lovely patio was extremely useful. The only limitations were the variable internet connection and also some hooks or another shelf would be very useful in the bathroom - with 4 adults and no where to store toilettries this was tricky! However we would definitely book again and enjoyed our stay in Aberdaron.

  • "This feels like a very mixed review."

    There were a lot of pluses to this cottage, it was very clean and well maintained as well as well located - however vastly overpriced. I suspect that this was because of the demand for such places due to covid and understandably there is a need to recuperate losses from the last 18 months. However, our biggest disappointment was the internet. It was desperately poor and we could only access it in the top bedroom or outside at the front of the house. Ordinarily I might have been able to have forgiven this, but given the price we paid I have had to score lower than it probably would have scored in a normal year.

  • "Very peaceful and quiet location which was ideal for a comfortable relaxing break."

    Owners were lovely as were everyone we spoke to in the village. The key thing about Pen y Bont is its location - so close to the beach and local amenities. Everything you need is on the doorstep.

  • "We have been returning to Pen Y Bont on numerous occasions over the past few years."

    It is a lovely ,comfy cottage in the perfect location, dead centre of Aberdaron and just a minutes walk to the sea and all amenities. The cottage has always been cleaned to a very high standard, but with the covid restrictions the place had a deeper clean if at all possible and everything was sterile. They have hand sanitisers in the front porch for you to use and sterile wipes for surfaces. Every care had been taken to protect the customer and the villagers during these unusual times. I wouldn't hesitate to return again in the future. Well done to the owners for making our stay enjoyable and safe.

    The cottage couldn't be handier for everything the lovely village of Aberdaron has to offer. The Spar shop is just across the road and we can recommend their butcher's counter. The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable and it's nice to know that the owners aren't too far away should you need them. We'll be back.

  • "House was in lovely position and very well equipped."

    Only downside was the downstairs bedroom smelled of damp.the fan in the bathroom didnt work due to there being a birds nest in the back of it outside which my son removed and managed to get it working again.The cold tap to the bath wouldnt turn off which needs addressing . Note that was in the house expressed that the owners would call the day after arrival to sort any issues we may have but we didnt see them all week. Didnt feel the need to ring them as we managed to sort the problem ourselves.We still managed to have a lovely holiday but feel the property could do with some well needed maintenance.

    It was exceptionally clean,warm and equipped. The outside space and games room was an added bonus as was the use of the gas barbeque, facilities we weren't expecting, you must promote them more. The cottage was in an excellent location, just a short distance from the lovely beach which was predominantly dog friendly. Great food in The Ship Inn Resturant and great weather for September made it a perfect holiday. Thank you Wilma and Ian
