  • "A wonderful property that was the basis of a great trip away."

    It is superbly located, great ambience, spotlessly clean and everything is new and functions perfectly. It appears to be someone’s private second home that they kindly let us stay in. This is defo a 10/10 and we will be back for sure.

  • "This is no run of the mill holiday home."

    From the imposing outside facade to the spacious interior, everything is just perfect. The accommodation is spotless. The furnishings and equipment are of the highest order. In fact everything has been created for the comfort of holiday guests. This includes the luxurious bathrooms, a very special feature. Guests will not have out of date information and brochures to contend with. Starting with a letter of welcome, the owner has produced what we consider to be the best information folder we have ever seen in decades of self catering. Here you will find step by step details of use of electrical appliances, local places to eat, walks and much more. We should also mention the superb panoramic views from many of the rooms. In short, Bryn Deryn has everything you could want from a holiday home.

    The house is extremely spacious and beautifully furnished. When the sun came out it was a pleasure to sit at the front of the house and enjoy the amazing sea views.

  • "This is a lovely property in a fabulous location."

    The house is spacious, very clean, tastefully decorated, comfortable and has everything you need. The bathrooms are especially nice, they are ‘very posh’ according to my 6 year old. The views over the bay are wonderful. We had an amazing holiday, none of us wanted to leave. I highly recommend this property.

    There were only 3 of us so we had massive of space as the property is huge. Excellent views over the beach and out to sea from the many windows and the outside seating. Really relaxing place to be.

    Everything was perfect and if we could score higher than a 5 we would! Amazing location, spectacular views, plenty of space for 6, immaculately clean, very high quality fixtures and fittings, so well equipped and even the weather was fantastic. What more could you want?! We had a brilliant week. No one wanted to leave! Thank you!

  • "The property was immaculate and clean."

    Amazing views of the sea. My only negative comment is that the mattress in the master bedroom was too firm. My husband and I like a firm mattress but this was just too firm. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return at some point. It’s one of the best cottages we have stayed in.

  • "Loved this house."

    Location was perfect. We are still talking about the view from the house. We didn’t realise so many rooms were locked, obviously personal belongings of the owner who visits frequently. Plenty of space despite that. We would return to Criccieth without doubt.

    Great to wake up to sunrise over the mountains and sea. Superb facilities, decor and cleanliness. The owners have this property about perfect. We have been renting in North Wales twice a year for the last 12 years and this is one of the very, very best. Superb.

  • "Great property."

    Only negative was being expected to strip beds of linen and bagging laundry prior to departure. This should really be done by the cleaner shouldn’t it?

  • "Excellent property, beautifully presented and exceptionally clean, wonderful views."

    Property is quite close to the main road A487 so need to be aware there is constant background noise from the road. Additionally the third bedroom, the twin room, is not on the ground floor as outlined in the details but on the first floor which may cause accessibility problems for some.

    Great location with sea views. A very minor gripe is to say that it would have been helpful to have had labelled keys to all external doors (x2 ?) It would also have been nice to have known from your brochure whether or not there was a barbecue.
