  • "We all loved this property."

    We had a great family get together with plenty of room for all the toys and noise that goes along with kids. The cleanliness, decor and comfort levels were great too. It was across the road from the beach which was perfect. The village was also really cute.

  • "Fabulous house."

    We were a party of 15 with ages ranging from 4 to 74. Warm, cosy, loads of space. Only criticism would be having only Aga to cook on. Tricky to cook,for example, pizzas for 15 in oven!! No doubt if we were used to an Aga we would have coped better. Position of property next to the sea, was wonderful for the children. They loved it. Pictures and description of property do not do it justice. Will recommend it to others

  • "A superb large spacious house in a perfect location for a family beach holiday."

    Ample reception rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms, all clean and well presented. Bedlinen and towels immaculate. A nice welcome basket with cakes greeted us. If i had to make any comments, the Aga was a struggle to use for a large gathering, and as it was on all the time, the kitchen was very hot. A large range cooker, electric or gas, would have been much more beneficial. The kitchen was well equipped, maybe a few more larger pans, dishes and a large measuring jug? Also there were no pegs for the washing line! On the whole we had a fabulous holiday and would definitely come back! Many thanks!

  • "The property was beautiful, comfy and had everything we needed for a great weekend."

    Cooking on the Aga took a bit of getting used to but we eventually sussed the cooking levels. The only thing I would say the kitchen needed was an electric kettle, when cooking for 14 there isn't enough room on the stove for the kettle. Being on the beachfront was ideal for us and combined with very unexpected sunshine was a bonus. Criccieth was a lovely town plenty of little shops to wander round and places to eat.

  • "It would have been nice to have a better understanding of how very different an Aga range cooker is to a normal cooker."

    Ended up having some very late meals because we did not appreciate how slow an Aga can be and the microwave was too small to fit a large meal into it. We had 2 x 90+ family members with us and for them hand rails on both sides of the stairs would have been useful. Other than these minor points we found the property to be well presented, well maintained and very comfortable. We would certainly be happy to make a return visit.

  • "All dealings with Sykes were spot on."

    I was kept informed all the way from booking to arriving. I have to say the house completely exceeded our expectations, the pictures are accurate but you don't realise how lovely it is until you are inside. So much attention to detail, plenty of pots and cutlery. The position is brilliant, just across from the sea and round the corner from Criccieth Castle. We are definitely hoping to go again but in the summer this time. I cant recommend this property enough.
