  • "Really enjoyed my stay here."

    It's a lovely quiet neighbourhood and there's the added bonus of very quick foot-access to the rest of the village. I was particularly pleased to be able to walk to the railway station in about 3 mins, which really helped me with getting to and from my coastal walk adventures! It's a cosy, warm little house and would definitely recommend it for singles/couples/young families. Thank you!

  • "Very much enjoyed our stay."

    Carreg Wen is well equipped and in a very convenient position. We felt that the bathroom was not as clean as we would have liked and could do with a refurb. Otherwise the bungalow was great and in particular the heating was very fast in warming up once we had mastered the smart thermostat which kept setting the temperature back to 12 c twice per day.

  • "The bungalow was warm, bright, clean, comfortable and in a good location."

    Previous reviews had mentioned a lack of cutlery, crockery, glasses etc but this had been addressed by the owner before our stay. Perhaps now just the addition of a larger pan, big enough to cook pasta in. If we were to holiday in the Criccieth area in the future we would happily return to Garreg Wen.

  • "A lovely clean property that was well decorated with beach and coastal themes."

    The WiFi was adequate for catchup on the Smart tv. The location of the property near to the promenade was excellent, and the nearby lane up to the station and the High Street made for an easy stroll to explore. The Cadwalader coffee and ice cream shop in the village is a must to visit. We enjoyed Gwyn’s artwork especially the painting near the tv. Well done Gwyn.

  • "Its a really nice bungalow and nicely decorated, warm and a nice open plan living space."

    My only criticism would be there was not enough cups, glasses etc really and this could be easily rectified cheaply. My other would be dog hairs. It was clean, and I suppose being pet friendly its going to happen and i should have thought about this before booking, but we wouldn't stay again because of it being pet friendly. So if you have a pet its a great place and great location... but if you don't have pets and you have a child I would not stay again. But everything else was lovely.

  • "Excellent cottage in excellent location stayed for 2 weeks (November 2021) and extended it by another 3 nights just didn’t want to leave Things provided at cottage tea/coffee/milk/ Welsh cakes, toilet roll and all cleaning products including dish washer tabs and some laundry items and towels and tea towels and hand soap Didn’t spot a hair dryer but I didn’t look in all drawers, and always bring my own."

    Will definitely be booking Garreg Wen again two minutes walk to beach and can cut through park at the back for high street train station and buses etc Tesco in Porthmadog and Asda in Pwhelli but garage open till 9pm with shop in walking distance to cottage over hump bridge and turn right

    Many thanks for your lovely feedback and glad you enjoyed your stay at Garreg Wen. A hair dryer is provided in the drawer in the double bedroom. We hope you will visit again in future. Property Owner

  • "Having stayed at this property 3 times, I can say the property is of really good quality and in an excellent location."

    The biggest and most disappointing issue is the quality of mattresses on the beds. One of the most important things for accommodation is a comfortable bed sadly the beds are a big let down. I have rebooked for next year as the house itself is excellent as is Criccieth but I’m hoping the bed issue will be resolved or it may very well be my last visit.

    Many thanks for your feedback. We have taken onboard your comments about the mattresses and have replaced them with new ones. We thank you for rebooking again for next year and hope you will find the beds to be more comfortable. Property Owner

  • "Excellent property in a fantastic location."

    All attractions of Criccieth within walking distance. The property is clean bright and fresh with a nice enclosed rear garden. The only disappointment is the mattresses on all the beds are of very poor quality and very soft. I have mentioned this before as we have been before and have made another two bookings for the same property. Would love to think this could be addressed as other people have made the same comment on their review.

  • "Garreg Wen was a great holiday home for us."

    We've been to Criccieth 3 times now with our young children and Penaber is a good base, and this bungalow was perfect with its enclosed garden and lots of parking. But the beds were too soft! We just couldn't get a good night's sleep on them, far too uncomfortable. This would put me off returning as we were all so tired by the end of the week. Also the shower was stuck to the hottest setting so we couldn't shower the children. I loved the little sitting area out the front, surrounded by hydrangeas - a lovely place to sit and catch the sun when the kids had gone to bed!

    The only things that we found awkward was that there was 5 of everything with regards to crockery and cutlery , you had no spares of anything. Also the double bed was squeaky. Please take these comments as constructive criticism, we had a great time and would like to book again. Thank you.

  • "We had a wonderful time at this property."

    Location is excellent for all local amenities. The property is very clean, comfortable, bright and fresh. If there was a negative it would be soft bed mattress’s. However we have stayed in many properties and they all seem to have the same issue. However it’s a beautiful property and we are looking forward to returning here next year.

    The beds were extremely comfortable and the open plan living/dining/kitchen area is very nicely finished with quality furniture and amenities. The back garden is well enclosed and private. Criccieth is a friendly and welcoming place. We really enjoyed our stay here and intend to revisit again next year.

The property

Garreg Wen is a bright and airy bungalow based on a quiet estate in the seaside resort of Criccieth.

Offering modern-style living in a great location, this property is ideal for a family or group of friends.

Upon entering the property, you will find yourself in a hallway, with ample space for hanging up coats and tidying shoes.

Opposite the hall is a clean and tidy kitchen overlooking the back garden, a lovely outlook when preparing those hearty meals for the whole family.

The kitchen area leads into the living/dining room – a great social space to spend the evening, featuring neutral décor with subtle hints of a nautical theme, showcasing art created by the owner themselves.

Patio doors lead out from the living area on to a small patio at the front of the property with bistro table and chairs.

Further along the hallway there are three bright bedrooms; one double, a twin and a single, allowing for flexible sleeping arrangements, followed by a family bathroom, hosting shower over the bath.

At the back of the property is a private garden with table and chairs, perfect for some alfresco dining or a rewarding beverage on return from a walk along the coast.

The bungalow is situated a short distance from the castle, beach and high street of Criccieth.

The town offers plenty of places to visit in the nearby area too, with attractions to suit many different tastes.

Head to the seaside resorts of Pwllheli, Abersoch or Harlech, or why not venture inland to the Snowdonia National Park?

A stay at Garreg Wen offers a wonderful base with plenty of amenities nearby.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
