  • "Being a regular visitor to the area, this was the ideal little cottage for my needs."

    The beach is a literal minutes walk away and only a few minutes further into the town. I visited during one of the wettest weeks of the year and local flooding in my usual haunts meant that I could not get out as much as I normally would, but the cosy warm surroundings meant staying in wasnt a chore. Already looking at dates I can come back

    It was so close to the sea, castle and high street. Even had a sea view from the lounge!

  • "This is a wonderfully cosy, comfy cottage with lovely views of the sea from the lounge area and kitchenette."

    Shower was brilliant and appreciated the extra space (sometimes shower cubicles are tight on space). Am already planning my next stay! Highly recommended. Thank you Eirian and Jamie.

  • "Fir tree cottage was a lovely place to stay ."

    It is in an excellent position overlooking the sea and the castle. Very comfortable and everything you need for a great stay . The only thing i would say is it would be nice to have a small welcome pack for when you arrive after a long journey just until you could get to the shops to buy groceries for your stay . Criccieth is a nice place with a lovely beach . However it does lack a little in good eating places . The pubs were run by very young people who lacked experience in customer service chatting amongst themselves and not cleaning up so to free up tables . A lovely little tea room with homemade cake etc was charming and also a great bistro with fantastic views from a small terrace and gorgeous food . Found a lot of eating places closed early in the week and only open Thursday---- Sunday . Would recommend Fir tree cottage .

    Great central location for beaches and walking with magnificent views of Snowdonia. So enjoyed sitting outside the cottage and enjoyed the well kept garden and views out to sea.

  • "The bed mattress was much too soft, it felt like a water bed."

    The shower is very slippery we nearly slipped over when stepping out, I would strongly recommend a non-slip mat before somebody has an accident.

  • "We have enjoyed our week at this property."

    Our only complaint was the bed which was too soft and had a tendency to leave us rolling into the middle. Everything was provided for us and was clean and modern. The weather could have been better but that’s a chance you take. At this property you are situated in the actual town and we enjoyed several days walking without the car. There is a train station, several eating venues and local shops. Black Rock Sands has a better beach than Criccieth but as weather was not great not a problem.

  • "We had an lovely week in a comfortable cottage in an excellent location."

    Criccieth is a good base for exploring and has several pubs, cafes and a range of shops, and the cottage itself is in a great location just a few minutes walk from the beach, butchers and bakers. We were aware that Fir Tree was a compact cottage so the facilities were what we were expecting and it had everything we needed, including a particularly good shower. We found it was a very friendly place to stay.

    We were kept up to date and were sent clear reminders of checking in etc. The cottage was beautiful and if anything had been undersold, although any potential issues such as weak WiFi had been pointed out beforehand ( we actually did not find this an issue). Brilliant service along with very reasonable pricing and an absolutely beautiful cottage in a gorgeous setting. We will definitely be booking again.

  • "The cottage met expectations in most ways."

    It was an ideal place to stay for easy access to all that the area has to offer. The cottage was mainly exactly as described, bijou but clean and comfortable. Three disappointing points though; uncomfortable bed- mattress needs replacing Knives were very blunt making food prep a big hassle and wifi was very patchy. Wifi had some reasonable periods but at other times was completely unavailable.

    Thank for your feedback about Fir Tree Cottage. We will be replacing the knives at the cottage. The mattresses were brand new at the property at the start of the season. We are sorry they weren't to your personal preference. Due to the area we are taking WIFI boosters to the property in the coming weeks. Property Owner

Nant Y Felin Cottages

Centrally located in the seaside village of Criccieth on the Llyn Peninsula in North Wales, these two delightful, detached cottages are situated within the grounds of the owners own home and are located within a short stroll of the beach, castle, shops, pubs and restaurants. The properties have had recent full renovations for 2020. Being single storey, they are ideal for any guests who have difficulty with stairs. Both cottages are nicely appointed with full gas central heating and offer compact and cosy accommodation with en-suite shower rooms, providing the perfect base, ideal for couples. Holly Cottage and Fir Tree Cottage can be booked individually or together to offer flexible accommodation and are perfectly located for exploring this beautiful coastline of North Wales. Criccieth offers an extensive beach and a castle, both only a few minutes’ walk from these holiday cottages. Enjoy a spot of lunch or afternoon tea in one of the many cafes in the village, or enjoy a drink in one of the local pubs after a romantic evening stroll along the beach. From Porthmadog, only five miles away, take the Ffestiniog Steam Railway and travel the 13.5 miles to Blaenau Ffestiniog, with its own attractions, such as Llechwedd Slate Caverns, Zip World Titan and Bounce Below, an underground trampoline or the Welsh Highland Railway where you can travel through some of the most splendid Welsh countryside to Beddgelert.
