  • "Lovely, peaceful location."

    Easy drive to some of the most beautiful, sandy beaches in the UK and then Snowdonia the other way. Hot tub was great- big size and well maintained. Hosts give you a lovely personalised recommendation sheet which helped us a lot….you must visit the Ty Coch pub!!! Facilities were like a home from home. Perfect.

    Can’t thank the owners enough for being so friendly, welcoming and kind to us. The facilities are fabulous and kept very clean. The hot tub was a great highlight too! Thank you so much. We will recommend to everyone we know and hope to come back soon!

  • "Really enjoyed our stay overall - absolutely beautiful location & property."

    Amazing sea views and not over looked at all. Garden was actually enclosed which is perfect for dogs & a big relief for us! Owner was extremely friendly & welcoming. Wifi worked very well & we appreciated the stocked kitchen with utensils and equipment etc The only ‘constructive’ feedback we would give is we were a little short on things such as toilet rolls, dishwasher tablets / cleaning products etc so we went and brought our own. Thank you for a lovely stay.

  • "We had a fantastic week, 4 adults, two teenage boys and two dogs."

    The cottage is brilliant, great location for touring the peninsula or further afield. The views from the garden and hot tub are fantastic. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Can’t say enough about how good this cottage is, makes sure you get to Abersoch for a choice of chic shops and food options. Porth Neigwl beach just beyond to play in the surf, Glaslyn Ospreys worth a visit too. Multi sports on Criccieth beach great for kids as well as the Castle Chippie there. Y Madryn pub in the village is dog friendly and does lovely local food and beer. Thanks to A the owner for his guidance during the week, we will be back. Don’t forget to sit out on a clear night in the hot tub and star spot and watch the moon rise over Cardigan Bay!

    Everything was perfect! The cottage was spacious and very well equipped. Lovely fresh decor and comfortable feel. The garden is great for the dogs as it’s secure so no worrying about them getting out. Wi-Fi was brilliant and the tv included Netflix ect which was perfect for chilling in the evening after being out all day walking. The location is perfect for visiting all the near by places such as Abersoch, Nefyn ect. The owner was really friendly and helpful! We will deffinately return.

  • "We recently had the pleasure of staying in Sgubor, a spacious, beautifully converted barn in a peaceful location overlooking fields with a lovely view of the sea."

    Arwel and his family were very welcoming always available if you needed them and if not they left you to enjoy the lovely peace and quiet. The cottage had everything we needed, beautifully furnished and with a very well equipped kitchen including dishwasher. The garden was fully enclosed and perfect for our dog Erik to enjoy the surroundings in a safe environment. The Hot Tub was lovely, well maintained and very clean, the water is changed every-time new guests arrive. We were new visitors to North Wales, it not a place we know well. We chose the area because of the beeches and we were not disappointed. Arwel has great local knowledge and we were blown away by the beauty of the area, all within 40 minutes’ drive. The local beech is around a 20 minutes, lovely walk from the cottage. The pubs within the area are still suffering the fall-out from COVID with changing opening hours and staff shortages so my advice is always give them a call to check their opening times and book a table where possible. There is a local Asda supermarket 10 mins drive away so all is very convenient. The cottage, the hosts and the area were all perfect for our needs and with so many places to visit we have already booked to go back next year. Perfect !

  • "Potential to be excellent with some improvements and attention to detail."

    Outdoor area and hot tub excellent, very well maintained, plenty of seating. Unfortunately let down by the interior. Spiders and cobwebs in every corner, stained carpets, remote control covered in jam, no wardrobes to hang clothes. Sorry to have to say but it wasn't what we expected and we have stayed in many holiday let's around the UK.

  • "Great little holiday cottage."

    Clean interior and spacious. Helpful it can accept dogs however on arrival there were 2 dog messes in the garden on arrival, one of which I was on the patio in full view and 2 on the driveway where parking is. The garden should of been checked prior to our arrival. Also the garden is not secure for small dogs as my dog nearly got into the field despite being watched. Outdoor recycling bins had not been emptied ready for us either. The previous guest or cleaner had left there cigarette pack on the outdoor window sill and butts on the floor. Better outdoor maintenance is needed. Upstairs bedroom had large stain on carpet. Needed a deep clean.

  • "A lovely property and an excellent location."

    A small improvement would be a couple of mats. One at the front door. When it's wet or when using the hot tub, it can get very wet in the hallway. Plus there wasn't a mat in the shower - which made it very slippery. But overall - a fantastic place!

    The owners who live in an adjacent property were equally unobtrusive but available if necessary, calling round on a couple of occasions to check everything was ok and offer advice as to places to visit. Whilst we like to visit many different places, Sgubor is one of the few that we genuinely would like to return to.

    But when we got here we were blown away. Absolutely stunning. Not just the views but the cottage itself. Helped save money too as we went out during the day and hot tubbed at night. The site owner couldn't be more friendly. Even let our dog play with his. But he couldn't do enough. So much to do within driving distance during the day. But this is such a stunning and comfortable place to stay. I would highly recommend. We will be back!!!!

    The interior was clean and inside was everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The owner came and introduced himself and regularly checked in throughout the week to make sure everything was to our liking and that we had everything we needed, he also showed us how to use the hot tub which was well used and a definite bonus for us. We were lucky enough to have a really hot week so went to the beach most days, our favourites were Llanbedrog and Aberech sands (only 10 minutes drive and free parking with a 2 min walk to the beach) The latter is a stony beach but has stunning views and it was very quiet. Criccieth is also a very pretty little place with the castle, shops, cafes and a beach, but this is not dog friendly. We absoutely loved our stay at Sgubor and have already booked for next Summer. Thank you!!!
