  • "Lovely house."

    We where a group of 4 generations staying there, 4yrs to 88yrs with our dogs. The property was nice and large, thoughtfully decorated and very comfortable, although husband said he would have preferred chairs for all the dining seating. The train line was great for our granddaughter, she would hear the alarm and run to the window to wave. The train drivers where lovely, either waving or tooting, she loved it. This is not a complaint, maybe a suggestion, a small shelf for toiletries in the shower cubicles would be very useful. We all loved staying at cambrian house and may be booking again in the future.

  • "Very nice place and ideal for what we needed."

    only thing that needs some attention is the showers are a little hard to operate (may need a service or changing top floor).

  • "Views were spectacular, we had moody weather and a mixed age range in our holiday party - 9 to 86!"

    But there was plenty of room with quieter and communal spaces within the lounge area providing a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. Great stay, everyone enjoyed their stay

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Cambrian House, 6 adults, 6 children and a dog."

    The house worked very well for us all, it was a bonus that 5 of the 6 bedrooms were ensuite. The village was lovely and we all enjoyed our daily walks around the local area and the beach. The train track was never an issue, actually we quite enjoyed watching the trains pass. As we cooked every night we found the kitchen was missing a few things, chopping boards, tea towels and the top single oven was very slow to heat up. A couple of fold away chairs would of been great to use around the table as we struggled to sit 12 of us around the table to eat. Overall a fantastic week away and a prefect place to welcome in the new year! Book it, you won't be disappointed!! Thank you.

  • "A lovely property in a great location, very nicely appointed."

    Kitchen very well kitted out, comfortable lounge and we enjoyed sitting at the juliet balconies looking out over the sea. Unfortunately none of us slept well as although the beds were very comfortable the duvets were far too warm for the time of year. My room on the second floor had twin beds rather than the king sized bed in the property description.

    It is well maintained and has plenty of inside space for a large family as it has a games room on the ground floor, and most of the bedrooms are en suite

    Loved everything about it. The games room was a saviour due to to the awful weather all week. All the rooms were comfortable and spacious. Very well equipped kitchen. In fact everything we needed. Lovely welcome box with essentials. Thank you for that we appreciated it. So convenient to the beach, cafes and shops. We would highly recommend this property and if ever we had another family gathering this would be first on the list.

    The property is located in the heart of Criccieth and has been modernised to a really high standard. It is very well equipped and comfortably furnished. We had no problems at all and would have no hesitation in recommending the house to others.

  • "The property was fabulous-thank you."

    Emma was great at sorting out the issue we had (our fault) with one of the beds needing to be made up when we arrived. She did this quickly and without any fuss or blame on us. My only criticism and it is a very small one is around those that love proper coffee. There is only one cafetière which is a large one. It would be helpful to had a single mug cafetière as well as a coffee measuring spoon. However this did allow me to just buy another one and add to my own collection! We loved it. The location of Criccieth and the property is perfect for exploring the attractions that north Wales has to offer. It is perfect

    It was the prefect place to celebrate my 50th Birthday with all the family. It was so spacious and clean with everything we needed! Looking out from the Juliet balcony with lovely views of the coastline and Cricceth Castle and waving at the train as it passed every few hours was one of the highlights, not only for my 6 year old niece but for my mum and dad too! The dogs also enjoyed their stay, the outside space was safe for everyone and we enjoyed sitting outside in the decked area! The games room was a bonus and my 12 year old nephew loved the pool table! We will definitely be back, thank you again.

  • "We had the BEST holiday!"

    The accommodation was excellent and worked brilliantly for us. Everything was clean and well equipped. The first floor kitchen/dining/living space meant that everyone could be together in a lovely bright space and the views out over the sea were fantastic - the armchairs in each window were prime spots! Criccieth is a lovely place with good local food shops and cafes. The surrounding area is beautiful and we visited lots of lovely beaches and got lots of fresh air. We won’t hesitate to recommend this property and area to others and are planning to visit again next year! Thank you

    Spotlessly clean, very well equipped and lots of space for us to enjoy a family break together. We first visited back in 2019 just before covid and returning this week is like no time has passed at all, the house is still as beautiful and well kept as it was 2 years ago. The games room in the basement is wonderful to keep everyone entertained and there is nothing better than watching the sun rise over the sea in the big yellow chair in the bay window. We cant wait to book again for 2022.

  • "We were supposed to be holidaying in Florida but due to COVID-19 we had to change our plans and stay in the UK instead."

    All I can say is we still had a great time and loved our stay in Cambrian House. We visited Zipworld were we went on the quarry karts. This wasn't cheap but we'd definitely do it again along with the zip wire. The beach is only a short walk from the house with a lovely ice cream shop selling gluten and diary free ice cream. Creccieth Castle is worth a visit, the views from there are simply stunning. The house itself was ideal for our party which was a mixture of age groups from 20-73. The view was great, kitchen had everything we needed, pool table ideal and lovely decking area outside. On booking the house I was a little concerned about the train line in front of the property but I needn't have been as it didn't have any negative impact on us. In fact it was quite a novelty seeing the trains pass by. We'd definitely stay here again and would recommend this house to family and friends.
