    “Excellent house with great views”

This property is part of the Menai Holidays collection.
Over 400 carefully selected and perfectly located properties, helping you create your perfect holiday.

The cottage

This is a fantastic holiday house with a definite wow factor.

Once home of the Prime Minister David Lloyd George, Pengolwg means "lookout point".

It was from this spot that the women of Criccieth would stand to look out for their loved ones returning from sea on the tall ships.

Walking through the front door you are greeted with a large restored wooden staircase, and ceilings reaching all the way to the top of the first floor with doors darting off in every direction.

The spacious sitting room has luxurious soft carpets and a log burning stove, making it a warm and cosy room to relax in after a day of exploring.

There is a TV with freeview and a DVD player.

If you want complete solitude from the rest of the group, there is a wonderful reading corner with stunning views over to Criccieth castle and the sea. There is a very well equipped, contemporary kitchen with the luxury of a bright red AGA, as well as an electric oven and hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher, coffee machine and of course a Popty Ping (Popty = oven, ping = ping, meaning Microwave).

The kitchen also has a DVD player.

There is a utility room with a washing machine. The dining room has the most stunning views across to Criccieth castle and all the way to Harlech following the coastline down Wales.

There is a large dining table and chairs at one end of the room, with a small sofa and log burner for a quiet corner whilst the rest of the party are in the sitting room. There is a large bathroom behind the kitchen, so as the kids bathe you can start to get the supper underway. There are five bedrooms.

On the first floor you will find a twin room with zip and link beds and very comfy mattresses.

Please request how you would like the beds to be made up when booking.

There is also a double bedroom with views like no other, looking out for miles and miles over the Welsh coastline.

The room has the luxury of an en-suite shower, loo and basin.

The third room has a king size bed, with similarly stunning views and the added bonus of an en-suite shower, loo and basin. Nestled at the back of the house is a secret staircase up to another hidden section of the house on the second floor, with a stunning family en-suite room, with a double and a single bed, twinned with views across all of the Llŷn's coastline as well as Harlech and Criccieth castle.

Across the landing, there is a double room, with equally amazing views. On the first floor, there is also a shower room, with a large power shower.

The second floor has a free-standing bath. It is just an easy walk to Criccieth town centre which is laden with pubs, shops, restaurants and cafes, on your way to or from the beach.

Criccieth is an excellent central hub for exploring the Llŷn Peninsula, as well as having Snowdonia right behind you.

This house is perfect to relax in after a day of adventure, or equally luxurious to spend the days in reading a book in front of the fire and playing board games. The beds will be made made up as advertised, if you would like a different bed configuration please contact Menai Holidays 7 days before your arrival.

About the location


Porthmadog 5 miles.

Often described as the 'Pearl of Wales on the shores of Snowdonia’, this delightful seaside town is situated just 5 miles from Porthmadog. 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. Stroll along the beaches, watch porpoises playing in the surf, or relax in the various pubs, restaurants and tea rooms, sampling the famous Cadwalader’s ice cream. Further afield, attractions such as Portmeirion’s wonderful Italianate gardens, the Ffestiniog railway in Porthmadog, Harlech Castle, Caernarfon Castle and the beautiful beaches and renowned golf courses of the Llyn Peninsula are all within an easy drive.
