  • "A beautifully presented cottage, with all the home comforts."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sweetholme. The weather wasn't great but this didn't stop us from exploring the local beaches and beauty spots, knowing that we would be returning to a cosy cottage. Thank you and I'm sure we will return one day soon.

    So happy you had a comfortable stay and we can't wait to welcome you back. Property Owner

  • "We’ve just returned from a fabulous week at Sweetholme."

    The cottage is clean, nicely furnished and very well equipped. There was also a lovely garden that we didn’t get to use due to the time of year but our dog enjoyed! The cottage is well located for exploring the peninsula, 20 mins from Abersoch and Nefyn. Although located on a busy A road, we didn’t notice the traffic when inside the cottage. We also had no problem parking our SUV in the now extended parking space.

    So glad you enjoyed your week, thank you for the wonderful review. Great to know that the parking wasn't a problem. Property Owner

  • "We stayed at Sweetholme in October and had a lovely time."

    The cottage is beautifully finished with traditional features and very modern appliances and bathrooms, it felt like we were staying in a boutique hotel that also felt very homely - a winning combination! Very conveniently located for access to the Llyn Peninsula and the rest of North Wales. The best cottage we have stayed in so far. Highly recommended. Many thanks from Ross, Jackie and Bailey the Cockapoo.

    Thank you so much for your lovely review, we are really happy that you enjoyed your stay. Hope Bailey enjoyed the garden and beaches. Property Owner

  • "Very uncomfortable."

    Furniture too large for small rooms. Electric cooker unfathomable. Parking involved mounting kerb, even then blocking part of cycle path. Steps to entrance very difficult to navigate.

    We're very sorry that you thought the furniture was too large. There are instructions for the electric cooker. We are attending the cottage next week to extend the parking. Property Owner

  • "A delightful cottage very tastefully renovated, the dogs made thorough use of the garden and we particularly enjoyed sitting in the summer house with our G&T’s after an enjoyable touring of the area."

    Parking a problem but fortunately a space by the bus stop was always available.

    Many thanks for your lovely review of the cottage, so glad you enjoyed your stay. We are increasing the parking space directly outside the cottage in October so hopefully if you return you will find the parking easier. Property Owner

  • "One of the best cottages we’ve ever stayed in!"

    Clean , comfortable, picturesque too if I was being super picky then I’d say parking but for 99% of the time the road by the bus stop was empty and there is the little pull off in front- superb cottage

    Thank you so much for the lovely review, we're really pleased you found the cottage comfortable. We're extending the parking in front of the cottage in October so hopefully if you return there will be more space. Gill & Dave Property Owner

    The owners have provided all the facilities needed for relaxing stay, apart from the busy road location. We had a great stay , enjoying the nearby dog friendly beaches and walks.

    Thank you for the lovely comments regarding the cottage, glad you had a great stay. Sorry you found the road busy, we are based on the main route along the Llyn Peninsula which provides great access to all areas. Property Owner
