  • "Information pack received before arrival with everything we needed to know."

    Amazing property, better than the photos! Fully equipped with everything you could need, comfy beds, towels, gorgeous bedrooms and bathrooms. This place was outstanding and the views were out of this world. 12 of us stayed there and every single one of us would go back. We were sad to leave!

  • "We had a fantastic stay for my hen weekend!"

    We didn't expect much as the photos did not do the property justice! Absolutely everything you could have needed was provided, and the views out onto the water were beautiful. I'd definitely love to come and stay again!

  • "What a find!"

    We were lucky enough to secure a booking at Bryn Eglwys this summer for a large family holiday after many months of not being able to see each other and to celebrate my parents Golden Wedding Anniversary. The house has been renovated and decorated beautifully and there are lots of lovely design touches, not least the gorgeous variety of wallpapers used throughout the house. The front bedrooms has amazing views but the rest of the rooms are also very comfortable and thoughtfully finished. There are several bathrooms, with fab showers, so there was no queuing up in the morning! The hot tub was well used (and checked part way through our stay) as was the pool table and as the weather was well on our side we had several BBQs during our stay too. The town amenities and beach are within a short walk and we enjoyed a few days in Criccieth as well as rediscovering the gorgeous beaches along the coast including Barmouth and Black Rock Sands. The weather was glorious during our stay so we stuck to the beaches but the Snowdonia mountains are also within reasonable distance for those who may prefer to go hiking. We had a very relaxing stay and it was just what we needed to catch up on much missed family time together. Don't leave without trying an icecream from the Cariad Gelato Piaggio!

Proudly positioned in the beautiful town of Criccieth, overlooking the soft sandy shores of the North Wales Coast and the spectacular fortress of Criccieth Castle, Bryn Eglwys is a magnificent three-storey Victorian holiday home that is sure to add a touch of luxury to any self-catering stay.

Boasting eight gorgeous bedrooms, each with their own individual style, this property can host up to sixteen people making it a wonderful spot from which to enjoy a family or group getaway, no matter the occasion.

Leave your coats and boots to dry in the porch, before stepping inside the grand hallway and discovering a fabulous sitting room with a traditional gas fire, where you can enjoy many relaxing evenings chatting amongst friends and enjoying enthralling movies on the Sky TV.

From here, a gorgeous kitchen with stunning solid wood cabinets and a striking range cooker can be found hosting a sea of appliances, perfect for cooking up many delicious home-cooked meals for all to enjoy whilst gathered at the opulent mahogany table that decorates the fabulous dining room.

End your evenings with a quick game of pool in the ground-floor games room whilst the children play peacefully on the PlayStation in the second-floor games room, or head outside to the enclosed garden for a relaxing dip in the hot tub as you watch the sun set after another memorable day in Wales.

Retreat indoors to the ground-floor, accessible king-size bedroom, served by a gorgeous ground-floor shower room, or head upstairs to the first-floor and discover a further five bedrooms, each beautifully appointed and served by both a family bathroom and a shower room.

The bedrooms are made up of three king-sizes, one benefiting from an en-suite shower, and two twin bedrooms which can be arranged into king-size beds on request.

There are also two additional king-size beds resting peacefully on the second-floor, served by a family bathroom.

When ready to explore your surroundings, be sure to take a stroll down to the centre of Criccieth and uncover the fortress of Criccieth Castle, the shores of Criccieth and Marine beach, and a good selection of bustling pubs and restaurants from which to enjoy dinner and drinks by the sea.

Take a tour of the Amgueddfa Lloyd George Museum or travel to the colourful village of Portmeirion, home to tranquil spas, exotic gardens and a famous stone boat, offering a superb day out for the whole family.

A stone's throw away the town of Porthmadog offers plenty of fun with a captivating Maritime museum and Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways, where you can delight in a scenic tour of the countryside.

Head into the mountainous terrains of Snowdonia National Park and discover Sygun Copper Mine, Llechwedd Ancient Quarry and Zip World Slate Caverns, as well as awe-inspiring hiking trails to the peaks of Mount Snowdon, Glyder Fawr and Mynydd Mawr.

Seek thrills at the Dragon Raiders Activity Park, right on your doorstep, or head along the coast to the picturesque village of Abersoch to learn to catch a wave.
