  • "Great location especially once we found the little alleyways."

    Garden and conservatory particularly nice. Power shower excellent although bathrooms quite cold.Couches are a bit dated and not terribly comfy but ok. Nitpicking here but could really do with serving spoons. Hard to dish up with tablespoons Enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

    Pleased you enjoyed your stay, Serving spoons are being replaced, thank you for letting me know new ones are needed. Property Owner

  • "The essential item that the cottage could do with we think is a pair of kitchen scissors only a small item but greatly used."

    Qgen available. Also both green waste bins are in need of replacement as the are both damaged and you have to be careful when putting them out for emptying. On the good side the garden is secure so our dog Cooper could have plenty of zoomies around the garden.It is a lovely quiet area.The prince of Wales pub in the village is friendly and has so cracking food on offer also the castle chippy is another place to visit as the fish and chips are outstanding.

    Plenty of hot water and great powerful showers! As others have stated pans etc could do with replacing but it’s only for a short time and didn’t spoil our holiday as you improvise! Would definitely use this accommodation again .

    Lovely conservatory and garden. Had a very enjoyable week. One small point - absence of a food waste recycling container seemed strange, otherwise clear explanations provided on how to deal with waste disposal.

    so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and found the property comfortable. the food waste container is a bit of a mystery , it comes and goes I'm sorry. The Waste removal in this area is a little complicated, and therefore doesn't always go to plan ! Property Owner

  • "I really enjoyed our stay and think it is a lovely property, well located."

    The local team were very helpful, the national Sykes team slightly less so. I had a problem the first night I was there, when a blown bulb tripped all of the switches in the house. I was staying with my 93 yo mother, so it was quite scary to be left in the dark. The national Sykes team were not too helpful, but passed me on to a local contact, who was lovely and helpful. However, if you left info on how to access the garage and fuse panel in the guest info, a few fraught hours would have been avoided. Apart from that, we had a lovely stay.

    Sorry you needed access to the garage, it does take few minutes I had a call from Menai as an adjustment to the boiler was required by an engineer. I am not aware you had a trip failure, but we have just changed numerous bulbs for new LEDs. sorry that is no help to you now.! So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "We appreciated the milk and cakes on our arrival."

    We liked the conservatory and enclosed garden and also the kitchen area. However, we found the sofas very uncomfortable - in fact all the lounge area is dated and needs modernising. There were no instructions on how to use the appliances. The toilet does not flush properly. The bedroom carpets need replacing. We do like the location of the property.

    Thank you for taking the time to comment. As I have commented before the sofas are scheduled for replacement just as soon as we can physically do the change. Some furnishings are dated I agree, improvements are a work in progress and there are some to be addressed over the winter. Property Owner

  • "There were no instruction manuals at all in this property - cooker, hob dishwasher , heating etc."

    Also there were dead spiders and insects which looked like they had been there for a while and one of the lavatories flush system was very erratic. Otherwise it is a conveniently situated bungalow with good parking and the office helped me quickly to locate the heating thermostat. The conservatory and garden are very pleasant..

    I shall leave the instructions in a better place, sorry, they are all in the house. The thermostat for heating is wired on the wall to the Lefthand side of the TV. Property Owner

  • "This property is a quiet and excellent location and a perfect base for exploring Criccieth and the wider area."

    The garden is secure and beautiful and there is a very pleasant and comfortable conservatory to relax in. It would have been helpful to have a few more instructions as to how appliances, etc worked, and as per a couple of other reviews the lounge sofas were not the most comfortable. There were a couple of issues that couldn't have been foreseen which Menai cottages acted on very efficiently and promptly. We enjoyed our week and would return to Bro Mebyd

  • "We enjoyed our week at Bro Mebyd."

    We especially enjoyed the conservatory. The cottage was well equipped, and it was only a few minutes walk before reaching the sea. We appreciated the provisions (including some milk and welsh cakes) on our arrival. Our ~Sat Nav took us to the road, but we found the instructions about 2nd house after cross roads a bit confusing. It would have been helpful to use the house number - 26 in the instructions. A bit confused about what went into which bin, but all was collected on the appropriate day. But these are only minor details. It was a good base for our holiday, good to have parking and easy to walk into Criccieth from there.

    Will book again. Two points 1. They floor screws on the bathroom toilet are very loose. They need fixing asap to avoid possible flood. 2. The light in the rear toilet does not work. Many thanks for a lovely week

  • "Whilst the property is in an ideal location which allowed us to have a super holiday."

    .... the property itself is in need of a little love and attention to detail with the clients stay at the forefront of the mind.... 1. The sofas are extremely uncomfortable 2. There is no hoover to allow clients to keep things clean 3. The bedrooms are in need of modernisation as there is a reminder of who used to live at the property.... (felt a little uncomfortable) 4.Although there was some information about the property/location this could be vastly improved upon and presented in a more professional manner.

    Thank you for your helpful feedback. My first season of holiday lets, I'm learning a lot !! I acknowledge some things are a little dated, but functional, and improvements are ongoing. A new vacuum is ordered and a new single bed will. be delivered soon. Very happy you had a lovely holiday. Property Owner

  • "We had a great holiday at Bro Mebyd the cottage is in a great position and ideal for the beach, local walks and the many shops, bars, restaurants and cafes on the High Street."

    After reading other reviews I was surprised that hardly anyone had mentioned the short cut to the High Street. Just 3 properties further down the street there is a pathway, if you keep to the left, that will lead you over the pedestrian level crossing and on up to the High Street, just an easy ten minute walk. This pathway also leads you, in the opposite direction, to the bowling green and mini golf. There is also a play area for children and a football field. The cottage, all be it very spacious only has 2 small sofa's which are not very comfortable to relax in and would benefit from an upgrade. The conservatory is much better for relaxing but there's no TV in there. The shower head in the main bathroom needs changing and the outlet for the second shower overflows. While we were there we discovered a wasp nest in the shed, where the outdoor seating is stored, a big thank you to Amanda at Menai Holiday Cottages for sorting this out the same day for us.

    Thank your your helpful comments. The overflow from the shower is fixed, blocked further down the pipes, by object which should have been disposed of by another means ! Property Owner

    Could not find fuse board as it was in the locked garage. Managed to get everything sorted and had a lovely stay.

    Very quiet area. Easy access to beach and coastal path with the dog. Conservatory a great bonus. Good cooking facilities but curious lack of ovenware - no roasting pans. Also no food waste bin. Husband found supplied bath towel was too small, so he had to additionally use those provided in the unused bedroom - not good if there had been 4 guests.

The property

Tucked away in the seaside town of Criccieth, Gwynedd, near a beach, is this pretty, detached cottage, Bro Mebyd.

Enjoying an enclosed garden and ground-floor living, this pet-friendly property makes a wonderful escape for four friends or a small family.

Leave your vehicle in a private parking space before stepping inside to discover the entrance hallway; here you can kick off your shoes ready for exploring the coastline.

The open-plan living space is the idyllic place to unwind after an action-packed day, sprawl out on the sofa with a cup of tea, as the TV plays your favourite shows.

Step over to the contemporary kitchen area, certain to entice budding chefs with electric oven and hob, as well as a dishwasher for a fuss-free clean; when dinner is served, settle down at the dining table and uncork a bottle of fizz.

When the sun is shining, you and your furry friend can bask in the good weather out on the rear lawn or on rainy days curl up in the conservatory and escape into a book.

After an adventurous day, enjoy a steamy shower to refresh or indulge in a bubble-bath in the tub in the family bathroom and you can leave your towel on the radiator to keep it warm and fluffy.

When eyes grow heavy, two well-presented bedrooms await, choose between a double and a twin bedroom, both with ample storage to unpack your belongings.

Awaken with a steaming cup of coffee in the conservatory before joining your guests at the dining table for a hearty breakfast.

Just moments away is a rocky beach, where you can take your pooch for a run about and spend an afternoon snorkelling or relaxing.

History buffs will be thrilled with a trip up the hill to marvel at the remains of Castell Criccieth, which was destroyed by Welsh Princes and for more attractions, venture into Porthmadog for its Maritime Museum and traditional steam trains.

The seaside village of Abersoch is also worth a visit, with its Blue Flag beach, where you can lay back on the golden sand and its high waves for surfing enthusiasts; fuel your excursions at beachfront cafes and watch the world whirl by.

For a much-needed break to the stunning Llyn Peninsula, consider Bro Mebyd.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
