  • "What a fantastic stay we had at Haul A Gwynt, we were very sad to leave and it seems such a distant memory already."

    The property is absolutely beautiful and exceptionally well appointed in all areas. It literally is like home away from home. The beds, bedding, towels, furnishings, kitchen, all areas, have such high quality, it was an absolute joy to spend the week here with want of nothing (except perhaps some sunshine!). The views are stunning and it was breathtaking to watch the waves during the storm and see what a difference some hours made in the weather. The hot tub was a welcome treat and made the relaxing even more enjoyable, especially after trips out in the wet. Our host Jan was amazing, very thoughtful and communicative and it was a relief to know that she was on hand should there be an issue, but there was not. Jan & Julian have put a lot of thought and effort (and from the sounds of it blood, sweat and tears too) into making this property truly outstanding. The location is also fabulous, particularly if you love trains, beaches and sea. We cannot recommend this property highly enough and we have already recommended this to all our friends and hope to organise another visit in the future. This property really is one of the special ones and if you get the opportunity to stay, it really is a must! Thank you Jan & Julian for making this a holiday to remember.

    Hi Michele, The storm was pretty epic during your stay! Thank you for your lovely feedback and kind words, it means a lot, especially personal recommendations to friends and family. Thank you for choosing to stay at Haul A Gwynt and we hope to welcome you back again. All the best, Jan & Julian Property Owner

  • "Absolutely stunning property, in a fantastic location."

    The refurb they have achieved with this house is outstanding, and it shows even more so once you're there. All the fittings and furnishings are really tasteful and of a high standard. You can tell the work that has gone into refurbishing this old house into what you see today, there's been no expense spared in the fit and finish, and they have turned this place into a real gem of a property to stay at Criccieth. Jan (the owner) was great with communication just before our stay, wishing us a safe trip, and sending us lots of info on places to eat/visit which was extremely helpful. And also on arrival, and leaving the property, she was in touch via text to make sure we were happy with everything. It was great assurance knowing she was available should we have any issues, so we could speak directly with her, but thankfully, we didn't need a thing. There were no issues during our entire stay at the house. We had fresh milk and eggs, a bottle of bubbly, Welsh cakes etc which were a nice touch on our arrival. The house was immaculate, as were the grounds outside. You'll get used to the little bunnies roaming around the garden too! Which was a nice surprise! New TV's with sky (including sports) and strong solid WiFi (around 50mbps), off street parking on the drive were all very welcome amenities too. We had sun and rain with 50-60mph winds during our 1 week stay, but whatever the weather you will have a fantastic time at this property. The views from the balcony at any time of day/night are outstanding. The beds and sofa's were really comfortable. Plenty of dishes, glasses etc for cooking. And the hot tub quickly became part of our daily routine! The only real problem I had with this house was leaving it at the end of our stay! Thanks for everything Jan, and good luck with the house for the future!

    Hi Stephen, I am so happy you enjoyed yourselves, rain and shine. The wind is great for wave watching at least! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your lovely review and kind words, I really appreciate it. Hope to welcome you back again in the future. All the best, Jan & Julian Property Owner

  • "Just home from a week’s stay at this wonderful property."

    Where to begin…the house is fabulous, beautifully furnished, with a wonderful ‘New England style’ wrap around deck and balcony overlooking the sea that we used every day thanks to the glorious weather we had all week. Two of the bedrooms have their own balconies, and given the warm weather, we kept the doors open and drifted to sleep to the sound of the sea. Cricceith is ideally located for exploring Snowdonia, Anglessey, Conwy and much more, and the biggest surprise for us were the beaches along the west Wales coastline (Harlech), with views rivalling some of those that you’d see along the Great Sur in California. Haul A Gwynt was the perfect place for our family holiday.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review, your wonderful comments are much appreciated! We are so happy you enjoyed your holiday at Haul A Gwynt, with the bonus of the amazing weather too! Thanks again, Jan & Julian Property Owner

    A stunning, luxurious house in a beautiful location very close to the beach and the pretty town. The house, with gorgeous big bedrooms, spacious and comfortable lounge and kitchen, clean and modern bathrooms, is really well equipped with everything you could need (and more!). The hot tub and sun deck were the icing on the cake! The owners thought of everything to make our stay special - even down to suggestions for restaurants (which were all fabulous). We had an amazing holiday and this was by far the best accommodation we’ve ever stayed in in the UK

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your amazing review and for your kind words! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your holiday with us, it really makes our day! Warm wishes, Jan & Julian Property Owner
