    The property itself was clean and comfortable and in a beautiful location. Just a minor point, it would be great to have a couple of larger pans for cooking in properly please . Would definitely come back here.

  • "We loved the position of the bungalow."

    Convenient to the pub, restaurants and shops with a nice little walk down to the seafront. Being high up; we could see the waves breaking from storm Agnes. The bungalow was very clean and well equipped with loads of parking and garden. The owners were very friendly and available to resolve any questions.

  • "Well-equipped holiday house that felt very homely."

    Very comfortable beds, beautiful garden and patio area, and easy access to the beach. Perfect for a multi-generation trip. As others have said, the stream was a big hit with our son. The owners were very helpful and easy to communicate with. Would recommend and return in future.

  • "Nefydd is a spacious property in a lovely quiet location with nice views of the sea and Criccieth castle."

    We found the parking easy as it is such a large plot, and liked the fact it is only a short walk to the village shops. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms very comfortable.The terrace was nice (just one niggle as there was no parasol for shelter and we had the most beautiful hot sunny week of weather!) It was also nice to have contact from Sioned the owner. If we return to Criccieth we would definitely consider staying here again.

  • "Lovely cottage, comfortable and great views and location."

    Beds comfy and lounge large yet cosy. The kids loved the garden and being close to the sea. Criccieth is a great base to explore the area but also worth spending time on the coast, at the beach and visiting the castle. The only minor thing would be some larger saucepans please. We were cooking for six and the pans were too small. Otherwise the kitchen was really well equipped.

  • "This was our second visit to Nefydd."

    The property is comfortable, well maintained and with extensive, “manicured” grounds and the stream providing an attractive feature. Ample room for parking two or more cars adds to the convenience of the property. A short walk to the beach and town allows the opportunity to explore locally. With Porthmadog only 10 minutes away, the area is well supported with supermarkets and a variety of small local businesses.

    We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio listening to the water gurgling in the stream below. The garden is lovely too. Plenty of parking for our 3 cars on the drive. A short walk to the beach or town. It was hot and sunny for us but this would be a great place to stay in winter too.

  • "The cottage was lovely but there were a few things we would like to mention."

    A blind is needed in the bathroom as you can be seen from outside. The sofas were very uncomfortable and the tv needs to be lowered as you strain your neck watching it. There were no instructions on how to use the cooker and insufficient crockery for 6 people.

    Thank you for the comments and that you found the cottage lovely. A blind has now been fitted and thank you for the suggestion. The corner sofa is from a well known retailer and there is also another type of sofa to ensure two styles of seating with different fabrics and levels of firmness to meet as many guests personal preference as possible. The TV does need to be positioned in its location due to the logburner position and although we have not received any other guest comments about this, we are sorry if on this occasion you found it uncomfortable to view. We will look at instructions in the property and have also checked crockery levels. Thank you also for the top cleanliness score, much appreciated as we do take pride in how clean our property is.

    Everything else was a bonus. Nefydd's proximity to the beach and local amenities meant we didn't need to drive at all on a number of days, as we could simply enjoy exploring Criccieth and the coastal path. The local shops have excellent produce and are well stocked. The patio terrace, garden and stream was peaceful and relaxing - we were lucky to get some sunshine too! The owner was incredibly helpful and understanding of some of our additional concerns around my Mum shielding (in light of the current climate). The cleanliness was exceptional though, so thank you for all your hard work.

    The property was clean and comfortable, well appointed with excellent facilities and I couldn't recommend it more. Well situated within easy reach of the beach, local shops and amenities, our stay was delightful. Off-road parking was more than adequate, with room for at least three cars if not four. Contact with the owners was simple, and having met them both they're lovely hosts who simply couldn't do more to help. I'd certainly recommend this property for a week's stay.
