  • "It is a fabulous house, very well equipped and incredibly comfortable."

    The beds were especially comfortable. Loved Criccieth, really pleasant quiet place, though if you are going in the school holidays and want eat out i would book in advance Really convenient location for the town for snowdonia and for Llyn peninsula.

  • "We had a lovely week at Ty Jem and enjoyed exploring Criccieth and Snowdonia."

    Here’s what we liked: The welcome pack with Welsh cakes, milk, tea, coffee and jam was a nice touch, thank you. Entrance hall, space for shoes, walking boots and coats was perfect. The games room was great fun and easily and safely housed our bikes too. The kitchen was brilliantly well stocked, has everything we needed (and more!) and everything was good quality and easy to operate. The lounge area was great, good size, we enjoyed relaxing on the sofas, the HD TV was excellent and the dining table was just right. We had breakfast and a few drinks on the balcony which was nice. The beds were really comfy, clean and warm, TV’s in the rooms went down well and storage was great. The showers were consistently powerful, really lovely after a day on the beach or hiking. Fantastically easy to get to the beach and all the Criccieth has to offer by way of shops, pubs, cafés etc. We found breakfast and lunch nicer and easier to eat out than dinner which was limited. And the not so good: This property is so close to the train station you can hear the platform announcements, the big, slow diesel trains and their whistles. The trains are every two hours each way so it’s not too intrusive but should be detailed on the listing - as should the big fences and barbed wire between the driveway to the property and the railway line which only spoils the view of you look down - the views looking straight ahead towards the sea or up towards the castle are amazing day and night. We wondered if perhaps the property had been vacant before we arrived as it had obviously been cleaned, but had become dusty again in parts with a few dead flies in windows - easily resolved with a damp cloth and the vacuum cleaner, but not what we expected to be doing on arrival. There was also a stubborn sticky patch on the kitchen worktop by the microwave which was cleaned with some elbow grease, but shouldn’t have been there. The en suite in the master bedroom at the top of the house felt a bit odd, the room is massive, but the sink is small, probably cloakroom size and the shower, although spacious and powerful, leaks onto the floor at either the top or the side. We personally don’t like striping beds and towels before departing, but did so as requested and recognise the covid context. Overall we would stay again and would recommend this property.

    Thank you so much for your feedback and we are really pleased that you had a good holiday. We have addressed the issues you raised with our cleaners. We hope to welcome you back to Ty JEM soon. Property Owner

  • "Absolute fantastic property with plenty of amenities, games for children, local walks and small shops nearby."

    The property boasts 2 double and 1 kingsize bedroom with an ensuite and a toilet on every floor! Stunning attention to detail, everything had been considered, from the trays in the bedroom to place your trinkets and drinks on, bedside lamps, extra blankets and towels. No expense was spared on the kitchen and living room items and everything was perfect. Only a tiny piece of feedback as I like to think I'm a dab in the kitchen...bring your own potato masher and tin opener, otherwise absolutely plenty of cleaning, cooking and washing utensils. Thank you so much for making our stay amazing in your home, it felt very much like a modern home from home with a spectacular view from our impressive 'penthouse kingsize' through the window!

    Thank you so much for your lovely review, we are pleased that you had a good break. Also, appreciated the feedback on the kitchen utensils, we now have a potato masher and tin opener at the property. The master bedroom actually has a Super king-size bed and the other 2 bedrooms have king-size which can be made as twins on request. We hope to welcome you back soon. Property Owner

  • "Lovely house, perfect attention to detail, especially the welcome pack of bread, milk, tea, coffee etc, just what we needed to find after a long journey."

    Beds very comfortable, beautifully furnished and nice hot showers. The table tennis in the converted garage was a god send, as were the washing and drying facilities. The Alexa is a terrific idea, great to have background music and answer our questions. Highly recommended property, we will be back in N Wales and definitely plan around staying in this house again.

  • "Fantastic location, and had all we needed in the house."

    Stairs maybe a bit difficult for the less able. Would stay again!

  • "Thank you ever so much!"

    An absolutely fabulous holiday! Excellent home, full of luxurious things to entertain, after hours of gazing at the fabulous views! Would highly recommend climbing Snowdon by whichever method suits. Abersoch beach was beautiful and don't forget Beddgelert - a legend! Thank you again!

The property

Ty Jem is a gorgeous four-storey, town house house resting in the lively seaside town of Criccieth in Gwynedd.

Offering a balcony and sea views from most rooms within the house, as well as a games room, this fantastic property is the ideal retreat for a family break to the Welsh coast.

Arriving at the property, off-road parking allows you to park your car and leave it there for the duration of your trip should you want to set out your days on foot.

Enter into the hallway and leave your coats and shoes before making your way into the games room to work up an appetite over a game of table tennis.

When you are ready to sit down and relax, head up the stairs to the first-floor, home to an open-plan living space with a balcony, perfect for letting some fresh sea air into the space.

Here, happen upon the well-equipped kitchen where you will find an electric double oven and an electric hob to whip up meals for your group, as well as a handy dishwasher to assist with cleaning up.

Sit down for dinner at the dining table to discuss the day's events and plan your next adventure, before making your way to the sitting room to sink into the sofas and watch TV for the evening.

As the evening draws to a close, head upstairs to the second floor to find two of three well-presented bedrooms; here you will find a king-size and a twin, each of which have been furnished with plush zip and link beds providing you with a flexible sleeping arrangement.

Climb the stairs to the third floor to discover the master bedroom, a king-size with an en-suite shower room and sea views from the skylight window; get ready in style from this wonderous elevated position, or if you do need to get a bit of work done throughout your stay, this bedroom also hosts a handy desk.

Completing the interior of the house is a family bathroom located on the second floor and home to a bath so you can soak away the day with a good book, along with a convenient cloakroom and utility back on the ground floor.

When you are not soaking up the views from the balcony, spend some time in the enclosed courtyard savouring a glass of wine in the last of the summer sun.

The courtyard is a sun-trap on the warmer days, with dining seating for six and a barbecue, you can enjoy an evening of cooking and unwinding before heading back inside to enjoy your home away from home.

If you can tear yourself away from this delightful abode, why not give the chef of your group a break and venture out to eat at one of the local restaurants; Bryn Hir Arms offers traditional pub grub and an inviting beer garden, while Swn Y Mor is a family restaurant offering breakfast, pizzas, lunches and children's meals.

While staying at Ty Jem, be sure to visit the towering Castell Criccieth and enjoy the viewpoint overlooking the the Anglesey and Irish coasts.

For a spot of adventure, the Black Rock Sands Caves rest just a scenic drive away and provide an endearing location for cave walker and explorers alike, whilst surrounded by a sweeping sandy beach.

If adventure is your style of getaway, the famous Snowdonia National Park is within easy reach of the dwelling and boasts an abundance of walking and cycling routes, as well as opportunities for kayaking and canoeing on the peaceful lakes.

While here, why not stick you walking boots on and try to conquer Wales and England's largest mountain, Snowdonia?

Another scenic car journey will lead you to the picture-perfect village of Portmerion should you prefer a relaxing day of strolling nearby.

Whatever the weather, Ty Jem is the ideal property for a memorable holiday with your loved ones. Note: This property can be booked with 1068591 ( Ty Copr Perlog), together sleeping up to 12 people.

1 dog is permitted free of charge
