  • "Lovely property, nice and spacious."

    Great location with lovely views! First visit to Criccieth, we shall be back.

  • "Beautiful house in a great position on the seafront."

    Very well equipped and a lovely welcome pack which was very much appreciated. Only thing missing was a coffee machine but a mobile coffee shop parked outside most days. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely book again if we come to Criccieth.

  • "Lovely holiday rental and very tastefully modernised."

    Very spacious with everything you could wish for and great being so close to the beach with the sea views. Short walk into Criccieth town centre and close to other towns and attractions. Would definitely love to stay here again. The only snag we found was there was no generously large cooking pot for family of 6 (husband made us all soup) - we bought one from Tesco's and took it home with us.

  • "Stayed in this property with a three generation family and 3 dogs after confirming with Sykes/Menai that this was ok with owner."

    Property is excellent, near to beach and ten minutes to centre ( there is a short cut through housing estate at back). Couldn't fault the property, however early the first morning we had a call from Menai to say that it had been 'reported' we had 3 dogs and owner only allowed two. After explaining we had already agreed this with Sykes we were then told there must have been a mistake on their behalf. We asked how somone had known about the dogs so quickly as they had run straight into rear garden from the car. We were told it could have been a neighbour etc even though the garden isn't particularly overlooked. We had a message from the owner apologising for the intrusion but this message wasn't picked up until few months later. On further investigation we realised there is cctv on the front and rear of the property. The only explanation we could see was that they had been spotted on the camera at the rear which must be actively used. When owner was asked, we received no reply. We understand for security reasons that cctv can be used and must be made known to guests. Although there is a mention in the guide within the house it doesn't say it is used when guests are staying. We did enjoy our stay and can recommend to others but to be honest this made us feel a little uneasy

    We appreciate, respect and value all feedback. We make it our policy not to respond to individual posted comments because we steadfastly believe we offer the very very best amazing accommodation. Clients privacy is a number one priority and we never compromise on this promise. Our record and advance bookings are a testament to the outstanding service and value for money our guests experience. We gratefully thank all of our guests for their support. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic holiday cottage in a lovely town."

    The view of the sea and coastline from the house were amazing and helped to make a great holiday. We normally like to go to different places but would definitely go back again. The house was very well equipped throughout and very comfortable (beds, sofa, seating etc). Although we were a party of six, the house would easily accommodate 8 people with plenty of space, kitchen / utility facilities and seating areas. The pool table and board games were a great addition and gave us plenty of entertainment in the evenings along with the smart tv’s. Thank you for a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.

  • "Lovely stay at Tarth y Mor!"

    The house is beautiful, newly refurbished, very clean and in a perfect location with a gorgeous view of the sea from the living room. A fully enclosed garden meant the children and our little dog was safe, with a sea front walk on the doorstep that we enjoyed most days. The bedrooms were all spacious with plenty of room for the travel cot in any of the rooms! We drove to lots of different places during our stay with Pwllheli and Porthmadog nearby and Abersoch and Llanbedrog just 20 minutes away, the house is in a great location for all types activities! Great communication with the owner before and throughout our stay, with no request being too much trouble for him. We will definitely be returning soon!

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Tarth Y Mor."

    The house is in a perfect location, with lovely views of the sea - what a way to wake up each morning! The house itself was superb; really spacious and the pool table was a great addition. The back garden was fully enclosed, so it was nice and secure for our little Tibetan Terrier whilst we sat outside and made use of the BBQ. We really didn’t want to leave!

    We enjoyed the stay. The house was nice and clean with spacious rooms. The play room with a mini pool table was absolutely fantastic. Just a suggestion - a drying machine in the utilities could be a nice addition to the already fantastic property.

The property

Resting just a stone’s throw away from the beach in the historic town of Criccieth is Tarth Y Mor.

This beautiful, newly refurbished, detached holiday home is the perfect choice for families or friends looking to explore the wonders of North Wales with their beloved canine companion; it benefits from a welcoming and contemporary interior complete with four bedrooms, a games rooms and a conservatory, also a spacious garden and a fantastic setting close to the beach, local amenities and Snowdonia National Park.

After a day full of exploration, cross the threshold into your new home-from-home stepping into an open-plan living space where you can unwind on the plush sofas in front of the Smart TV.

Later, head into the kitchen, furnished with all the appliances you need to cook up a storm; sample your culinary delights around the dining table or indulge in a spot of alfresco dining out on the patio.

Enjoy the last of the evening with a glass of wine in hand while the kids burn off their energy in the games room home to a pool table and Smart TV.

When the evening draws to a close, travel to the first floor to freshen up in the shower room before sloping off to sleep in one of four bedrooms; choose from a super-king-size with en-suite shower room, a super-king-size and two doubles.

During the day, take a short walk down to the shores of Marine Beach where you and your dog can stroll along the seafront taking in the sea air.

Criccieth Castle also lies right on the coast, built by Llywelyn the Great, the castle now offers tours around its ruins and breath-taking views across the coast from its top.

Follow the coast to reach the popular, tourist village of Portmeirion which was modelled on Italian villages or head to Harlech to experience its stunning castle and breath-taking beach which looks out onto Cardigan Bay.

Alternatively make the most of the national park which is bursting at the seams with walks, trails and outdoor activities for everyone!

Make memories at Tarth Y Mor!
