  • "We loved the house, it was clean and full of everything we needed."

    The layout was perfect for us being fully open plan, we could easily all sit around the table for food, games, jigsaws..perfect. The location is spot on, literally at the beach and then five minutes the other way you're in the main street or the castle. We had great weather for October which obviously helped but we really loved it. I have to say the downstairs toilet with the sink in was loved by all! There were rather a lot of instructions upon leaving that we've not had at any other house we've stayed. Stripping all the beds, putting all towels and bath mats in a laundry bag and even putting out the bins. We all appreciate that it's a large house to clean but we normally have a 6/7bedroom house for the whole family and have never had this to do. We always clean round and take out rubbish and food etc, this just seemed a bit much. That said it didn't diminish any enjoyment it just made getting out for 10 a bit of a rush!!

  • "Very clean newly renovated property which has lots of lovely features and is fully equipped for all your needs."

    All the bedrooms are a good size and the layout has been very well thought out. It is extremely close to the beach at Criccieth (2 minutes walk or less than 10 minutes walk if you need the dog friendly end). Plenty of on road local parking and close to some lovely cafe and restaurants. We would definitely recommend it and had a great time. North Wales itself is extremely pretty with a wide range of things to do and some spectacular scenery within Snowden national park.

    Thank you for letting us stay in your property, parking was a bit of an issue we didn't give a 5 for the comfort as felt having spot light everywhere and no option of a lamp it didn't give a comfy feel we actually left early from the property, the shower in main bathroom changed temperature and scolded me - if it had been my daughter that would have been a real issue We look after various high end properties and never have any of them asked the guests to do the dishwasher, bins or strip the beds this is normally part of the changeover service The welcome basket was a lovely touch and could not fault how clean the house was

  • "Gwaled Y Mor was a beautiful, immaculate, very comfortable, well equipped holiday home very near the sea."

    We had a lovely week here with 2 excited young children (4 and 2) and an excited dog! The house is a 2 minute (if that!) walk to the beach and castle. The outside patio area was private and big enough for the children and the dog to play and had a nice patio dining set for eating outside. Would recommend Dylans for a lovely meal and Cadwalladers for delicious ice cream. We also paid a visit to The Children’s Farm Park near Harlech, which was really good with a lovely play park and soft play. The children were able to feed the lambs and cuddle the baby goats. All in all we had a lovely holiday and would recommend both the house and Criccieth.

    It was spotlessly clean, and very well maintained. The location was perfect for us. We were made to feel very welcome and relaxed. The owners made it clear they would help if needed, but gave us all the space we needed to feel at home. Every room was nicely decorated and the whole family were very happy. I would certainly recommend this holiday home to friends. Thank you!

  • "The property was spotlessly clean, exceptionally well equipped and exceeded our expectations."

    Thank you for your generous welcome box, the tea and cake after a slow journey was gratefully received. The proximity to the beach meant that we could actually hear the waves at night and the view of the illuminated castle was stunning. We feel very fortunate to have found such a gem of a property. We would absolutely book again and hope to return soon. Mrs Callaghan

    Everything modern and new. Super comfy beds and very good quality linen. Kitchen very well equipped with a large American style fridge. Great location very near the seafront. Loved eating at Dylan’s restaurant, also at Tonnau Restaurant in a hotel a couple of minutes walk from the holiday let. Would definitely recommend and would stay again when in the area.

The property

Tucked away in a row of idyllic terraced cottages, in the vibrant seaside town of Criccieth, you will find Galwad Y Mor.

Encompassed by vast coastline and the glorious greenery of Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, this arresting home-away-from-home offers the very best of the Welsh Coast and countryside, making it the ideal choice for an action-packed escape for a family or group of eight.

Beautifully appointed with stylish and contemporary interiors throughout, you can look forward to returning to the relaxing ambiance of the homely sitting room with a large Smart TV, perfect for kicking back with friends on the sofas and reminiscing the most memorable moments from the day's adventure.

Cross on over to the fabulous kitchen/diner where you can prepare many home-cooked meals throughout your stay, thanks to the handy electrical appliances that sit within.

Take a seat at the large dining room table or fling open the patio doors as you indulge in diner alfresco with a tasty glass of wine.

Back inside, a well-designed utility and cloakroom complete the ground floor, whilst a large family bathroom and separate shower rest on the first floor, serving all bedrooms.

Discover two beautiful king-size bedrooms right across the way, or continue up to the second floor to find two further bedrooms, made up of a super-king-size and a twin.

Both bedrooms on the second floor can be found boasting zip/link beds, meaning they can each be adapted to suite your preferred sleeping arrangements.

Discover the very best that this spectacular area has to offer, with afternoons at the heart of town exploring all the best local attractions such as Criccieth Castle and The Lloyd George Museum.

Wander along the sugary shores of Criccieth beaches and admire the colourful homes that line the banks, before trying out some of the delicious local seafood at one of the many popular spots.

Venture along the coast to Porthmadog for a tour of the Maritime Museum, or a scenic ride on the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways.

From here, Portmeirion is just a short drive away and is home to breath-taking gardens, a tranquil spa and many wonderful restaurants to wine and dine in.

Spend the day hiking through Eryri (Snowdonia) National and uncover mesmerizing waterfalls and ancient landmarks, as well as the imposing peak of Yr Wyddfa (Mount Snowdon), well-worth a visit.

For a fun-filled day out for the whole family, be sure to stop by Dragon Raiders Activity Park or Zip World Slate Caverns, Just a Short Drive Away.
