  • "We've stayed at pen y bont several times."

    Love this cottage and its location. There is something for everyone and plenty of room for us to enjoy ourselves, regardless of the weather. As usual the cottage catered for all of our needs. Enjoyed watching the Birdlife and especially the bats in the evenings. Everything was clean, but we encountered a few problems with the showers. Mr and Mrs Evans were very apologetic (thank you for the lovely wine and chocolates), and we're keen to try and solve them immediately. Thank you for another wonderful visit. Looking forward to our next one. Xx

  • "Excellent property (VERY spacious and on the whole clean ."

    ... a few things need some TLC & we did have to ask the owner to clean the oven which was disgustingly greasy and dirty). Slightly difficult to find (look on Google Earth before going). Always use the entry off the A487 near the bridge and go through the village as from the other way it's a NARROW lane ...don't risk it !). Entry about 50 yards from the narrow entry gate is in need of some care to stop cars bottoming in the centre of the wheel tracks. There were no instructions on how to operate anything. Some radiators hot/some cold too ... nothing to do with the thermostats on each radiator. Note that stairs are quite narrow and steeper than usual steps. The property is well located to visit places. Would definitely use this property again.

  • "A spacious and well appointed cottage in a quiet location, in a beautiful area close to the Snowdonia mountains, historic castles and the coast and beaches of the Llyn peninsula."

    Recommended. The property would benefit from an information booklet listing local amenities , eg nearest supermarket, eating places etc A tumble dryer would also be a useful addition.

  • "Just returned from a week at the farmhouse."

    Received a lovely welcome from the owners, who brought Welsh cakes and wine. The pool table was great for keeping our husbands entertained. Location was great, not far from Abersoch and Caernarfon. We had a great week. Facilities were excellent in the house. Would definitely like to return xx

    One kitchen wall cabinet under neon light out. One lounge wall light bulb out. One Inglenook niche light bulb out. Downstairs shower tray trap needs cleaning out, the tray fills with water. Upstairs loo roll holder loose. Also, the rear garden would benefit from a picnic table.

    The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable. We left with recharged batteries but will miss the nightly display by the local bats as well as the amazing clear starlit night skies. We would certainly return again .

  • "We are returning visitors to this beautiful cottage in an ideal location with good access to the Llyn Peninsula, Anglesey, Snowdonia and lots of activities to offer (from beaches to mountains)."

    Cottage is clean and well equipped. The cordial, welsh cakes and preserves are a lovely touch. The family are very attentive and welcoming and always happy to chat. We love the wildlife surrounding the cottage: birds, bats and cows and would recommend for anyone seeking a peaceful location, but options to do as little or as much you want.

    Lovely cottage, well presented, fantastic inglenook room and separate lounge area with pool table, TV and games perfect for kids, would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere rural, near a river, 10 Mins from pebble beach, surrounded by rolling hills and mountain backdrop, really homely with the wood burner, spacious well equipped kitchen and really well positioned in terms of Snowdonia and surrounding Caernarfon and north west cost, lovely welcome from the owners, to be honest we can’t wait to go back

  • "This is one of the best holiday cottages I have ever had and I would have given it 5 stars except for a few negatives."

    I booked the property for 5 adults, myself and my three children and my daughters partner. One thing that drew me to the property was that it had a sofa bed downstairs which could be made up so that a living room off the lounge could be used as a bedroom. The owners made this up for me but on arrival explained that it wasn't very comfortable and could not have any sheets on it as there's no mattress/cushions to fix it under. Consequently, my two sons (27 and 19) had to share the small bedroom with two bunk beds. They didn't mind too much but as we were lucky to have hot weather they did not sleep well in such a small hot room. Additionally, we discovered after a few days that the front door did not lock properly. You raised the handle and turned the key and it appeared to lock but if you pushed the handle down hard it would simply open again. You had to try several times to ensure the door was locked properly and so it may not have been properly secured during our first few days. Fortunately, the property is in a very quiet location with no passing traffic. I raised some other issues with the owners on the first day and these were promptly attended to. Overall, we had a great week and loved the cottage, if the above issues are addressed it would definitely be 5 star.

    No salt.we enjoyed our stay though, loved Porthmadog and Beddgelert.

The property

Pen y Bont holiday cottage lies in the most idyllic setting, south of Caernarfon, with pastureland gently giving way to the hills behind.

You can hear the river meandering its way down to the sea, which you can see from the front of the house.

This cottage has everything that you come on holiday for! The well equipped kitchen has an electric cooker and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and is furnished with a farmhouse table and chairs. Just off the kitchen there is an utility room with a sink, washing machine and freezer and a downstairs shower room with loo and wash hand basin. The sitting room has oak floors with rugs, a flat screen TV and DVD player.

The inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove make this a great place for a winter break too.

The second sitting room/games room has a TV and pool table to keep the kids entertained and a sofa bed can be made up on request.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms.

one double, one with a 4' bed, and a bunk bedroom (6'6" by 3'2"). The bathroom has a bath with shower over, loo, wash hand basin and ladder radiator. A small lawned garden to the back is accessed from the games room via the french doors.

To the front and side of the house, there is a large grass and gravel area, which is not enclosed.

The property stands on its own and in a quiet location.

This pretty holiday cottage has been carefully refurbished.

The inglenook fireplace has the original bread oven, and there are oak lintels above the windows, little nooks and crannies, and the odd exposed stone here and there to remind you of its’ history. Pen y Bont is close to lovely beaches and coves.

The Llŷn Peninsula has wonderful walks on the coastal path.

You'll find good food at the Harp in Llandwrog which is close by, and the garage in Clynnog Fawr has a convenience store.
