    This one is definitely one of the best and is definitely a keeper!!! Loved the space indoors and close proximity to he beach. The boys especially loved the pool room, well equipped too! Weather superb which was an unexpected bonus. Looking forward to returning next year. Many thanks for the welcome pack too.

  • "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!

    The house is gorgeous, with everything you could possibly need. It's in an ideal location close to the sea and was an excellent base to explore the local area. We will definitely be returning and recommending.

  • "Amazing cottage by the sea, quiet and serene."

    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.
