    “Positives - Lovely modern house, very clean, lots of space, great location.”

    Very comfortable overall. Loved the brightness and space, large bathrooms a plus too. Suggestions to improve - Desperately needed curtains on the bedroom windows for a better sleep. Also, the en suite bedroom did not have a king size bed as advertised (which was one of the main reasons we booked). Kitchen equipment very sparse - tiny 6 inch frying pan so had to buy a large one, no steamer so hard to cook veg and would definitely have been a problem with a larger party, only one chopping board so had to buy some. Also, no basics like hand soap in bathrooms, kitchen sponges, toilet roll, bin bags, wash up liquid provided which is a first for a Sykes property of this level. Would also have benefited from an Information Folder on the appliances, recycling information etc Overall, it was a lovely holiday. The house is lovely but I think to pay top prices in high season the above improvements would be justified. As a comparison, we just stayed in Mountain View Conwy which has all the above and more at a comparable price.

The property

In the seaside town of Criccieth, a lovely corner of the coast found on the Llyn Peninsula, you can find this lovely large family holiday home, Monarfon.

Hosting four bedrooms and enjoying a great location for all kinds of exploring, this property is perfectly suited to a family or group of eight.

Park up on the drive and head inside to find the fantastic kitchen/diner, where a large wooden table offers a seat for everyone for family gatherings with some great home-cooked food, get involved in the cooking using the array of appliances behind sleek cream units.

Adjoining this and providing access to the garden is the utility room, a welcome addition as it provides a washing machine and a tumble dryer, perfect for longer stays so you can cut down on packing.

A Smart TV rests in the sitting room in front of a charming arrangement of soft seating, a spot will you be looking forward to winding down in at the end of the day, and adding a homely touch is the woodburning stove set within the traditional fireplace.

Relax in the conservatory with breakfast and a coffee to wake up with the rest of the world while still within the warmth of the indoors, you can open up the doors to the garden in summer months for children to be in and out of.

As well as a cloakroom, the ground floor also benefits from a double bedroom; take a step down into this delightful spot, it has patio doors which open out onto the drive so you can wake up to a fresh sea breeze coming in.

Head upstairs to find the rest of the bedrooms, including a king-size with an en-suite shower room, a double and a twin, with all the bedrooms hosting a Smart TV as well, meaning you can snuggle under the covers while you watch your favourite show.

A family bathroom with a large P-shaped bath offers a great spot to unwind with a long soak, or take a shower with the shower over to freshen up and start your day.

The Criccieth Castle is a great one to explore, it offers wonderful views over Tremadog Bay, and built in the 13th century it is a longstanding piece of this towns history.

The town’s 13th century castle perches majestically on a rocky outcrop, dominating the skyline and offering superb views of Tremadog Bay and the Snowdonia mountains. Watersports enthusiasts will be delighted by the two beaches, whilst walkers and bikers are spoilt for choice by the proximity of the beautiful Snowdonia National Park.
