  • "Lovely peaceful week at Tyn Rhos."

    Just natural sounds of waves, wind, birds. House beautifully clean and comfortable. Quality range cooker a delight to use. Enclosed private garden a stunning sun trap. Resident hare put in an appearance one morning. Our sensitive dog soon relaxed. Lots of level walks on tiny lanes leading to descending tracks connecting with coastal path. Steep steps to beach so we went to Aberdaron beach for easier paddle. Recommend super bakery there. Local fisherman in Rhiw village sells delicious dressed crab and lobster. Steve and Sue discreet and helpful hosts who want to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We really liked Tyn Rhos even when it was blowing a gale!

    It really is a splendid holiday property, the owners Sue and Steve are very welcoming and work very hard to make everything perfect.

  • "Absolutely perfect in every way."

    This was the cleanest house we have ever stayed in, the thought behind all the unexpected extras was lovely, from the Bunny bread (delicious) and scooby snacks for the dogs, to the bin bags poo bags, hot chocolate sachets, washing up liquid, tea and coffee. The garden was lovely and extremely secure for dogs and children alike. The owners were wonderful and looking out for you. We will be back! We hope they'd have us back. Thank you.

    " Tyn Rhos is a great place to stay. A lovely clean house that has a secure garden which is perfect for both children and dogs. Sue & Steve were exceptional hosts, leaving a welcoming treat for us (superb Bunny Bread) and a treat for our dog. Plenty of walks from the property's doorstep, so nice not to have to drive everywhere. Would recommend staying here & hope to return in the future!

  • "We had a lovely trip down memory lane as our parents lived here some 40 years ago."

    The house was warm and cosy with everything provided for our stay and a safe enclosed garden for Otto the dog. Sue and Steve were wonderful hosts. On arrival they were there to greet us. There were fresh garden flowers on the table, together with a home baked loaf and a treat for the Otto. We hope to return in the future.

    It was so clean and had everything we needed. The garden is big and has great views, loved being surrounded by cows and sheep our 1 year old loved looking at them from all the windows. The cottage is in a perfect location, 5 mins drive to Aberdaron and just 20 min drive to Abersoch, Llanbedrog, Whistling Sands, Penllech Beach and lots more places. Some nice walks straight from the cottage too. We would love to go back!

  • "Excellent! Clean and spacious with large private garden overlooking countryside."

    We will book again. Sue and Steve live next door in their own detached property so you still have your privacy but they are available to answer any questions you may have. The large garden is private and our little dog could run and play ball in safety. Porth Isgo is in walking distance but a lot of steps to go down and up from the beach. Good exercise though. Lol Aberdaron Beach is an easy 15 minute drive away with a large car park next to the long sandy beach.( at low tide) I would suggest you check the tide table for low and hide tide. The cottage is very clean and comfortable with a long driveway so you are away from the road. It was great to just listen to the wild life. We are looking for available dates to go again next year.

  • "Absolutely fabulous!"

    Perfect, little, dog friendly beach just a pretty 10 minute walk from the house. We had great weather for most of the fortnight and the beach was never crowded at all. Plenty of room to socially distance. Rock pooling, shallow for quite a long way out and felt comfortable with our teenagers jumping off the ‘big’ rock at high tide. There are lovely walks which are perfect for dogs. We did our ‘big’ at the good sized Lidl and Asda about a 15 min drive away and topped up from the Spar in Aberdaron. Sue and Steve also helped us find a fishery about 30 minutes away where the kids could fish (all equipment provided) with a lovely tea room. Great for kids of all ages and socially distancing is easy. The house has spectacular views from every window, incredibly quiet (no traffic or any other man made noises). Perfect clear nights with no light pollution meant we saw a fantastic meteor shower. Tyh Rhos itself is a lovely house and very private being 200m from the main road. Everything felt very clean. Steve and Sue are superb hosts and very thoughtful. We felt very comfortable that they had been meticulous about implementing Covid-19 guidance. The house is well equipped with a tall freezer and separate fridge. The pots, pans, crockery and utensils all felt new and are all matching (not a mish mash of equipment that you can get in some self catering rentals). The brand new cooker was lovely to use. Plenty of room for us, our three teenagers and two dogs. Big, well kept garden was great for the boys to play football in and we befriended the cows in the neighbouring field. Would thoroughly recommend Tyn Rhos and would like to thank Sue and Steve for making our stay so relaxing.

  • "What a wonderful holiday, despite Storm Dennis!"

    Such a lovely home from home with lots of added comforts. The log burner was such a treat on the blustery evenings and Sues homemade bunny bread was amazing!! Both Steve and Sue were lovely neighbours and nothing was ever to much trouble. This was our first holiday away with our 7 week old baby & our 2 year old toddler and what a lovely relaxed week we had. Our little boy loved seeing the sheep from his bedroom window and also exploring the tracks down to the beach, which is in walking distance from the cottage. We were all sad to have to come home and we will be looking to visit again in the very near future. Highly recommended this holiday home. Thank you again to Steve and Sue for making us feel so welcome.

    Lots of little touches which made a big difference, including a good charge of wood and coal for the wood burner, enough to last a week with more available for a small charge.
