  • "Excellent relaxing location."

    Close to the beaches but far enough away for quiet. The property is well laid out, a good size. Garden was brilliant for the dogs and us. Really enjoyed our stay. Thanks.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "The cottage/bungalow was beautiful."

    It was one of the best we have stayed in and we have been in cottages all over the UK for the past 48 years as a married couple. Very clean and well equipped. Our two dogs loved the garden.

    We very much appreciate your kind comments. Property Owner

  • "Superbly equipped modern cottage."

    Very large kitchen/diner with lots of crockery, utensils, etc. Excellent shower. Two large comfortable sofas. Nice rural location with a lovely easy walk from the house up Mynydd Nefyn with its fabulous views across the peninsula. Plenty of power points in kitchen/diner but not many elsewhere. Only minor issues are a lack of any comfortable outdoor furniture and reversing out of the drive is a bit tricky but not enough for us to not give this place 10/10. Really enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the future.

    Thank you for your positive and constructive feedback. Property Owner

    ! The cottage is beautiful, spotlessly clean, warm, peaceful, extremely well equipped. We had such a great week, have come home totally relaxed and refreshed. Thank you to the owners for the obvious hard work you put into keeping the cottage in the excellent condition we found it in. Would definitely recommend and would love to return. Gail

    Thank you. We are glad that you enjoyed your holiday. Property Owner

  • "Glan Awel was one of the best holiday places we have stayed in."

    The bungalow was well equipped with everything needed for a self catering holiday. My escapee springer spaniel was unable to find a way out of the garden. Found the folder with instructions about recycling, washing machine etc very useful. When we arrived the palce was clean and welcoming, beds were comfortable. Lovely place for a peaceful chilled break with plenty of walks in the area.

  • "Absolutely amazing property that was well maintained and very clean."

    Beds were super comfortable. This was a 'last minute' booking as the property we were supposed to stay in was withdrawn by the owner so wasn't as much choice for our budget at the time. Property was a lot bigger and more spacious than the pictures show so that was a nice suprise as was the fact the garden was secure as in the pictures I got the impression it was an open or communal garden! Was a joy to cook Xmas dinner in the huge kitchen! The only thing I missed was a slow cooker and serving tongs, we had planned on bringing our own as we usually do but didn't have any space in the car! The property is in a lovely location 'out in the sticks' with fantastic sea views and is lovely and peaceful yet only a 5 min drive to Nefyn town which has a wonderful well stocked spar shop. Nearest bigger town with an Asda is only a 15 min drive and Caernarfon is only a 30 mins drive. Snowdonia is also a 30 - 45 min drive and there are also so many beaches within a half hour! We loved walking around Abersoch and we visited different beaches each day! The only negative would have been the shower as we struggled to get it hot and when we did get some hot water it only lasted 5 mins which was difficult for 5 of us but we managed. Thank you once again for letting us stay and we hope we left the property clean enough.

    Thank you for your kind feedback. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic cottage, everything we could have possible required was catered for."

    Spotlessly clean and well maintained Beautiful view's from the garden. But not the same view as indicated on sykes website, It was also misleading as it gave the appearance of being on it own, not as this mattered neighbours were very welcoming. But when trying to locate property we were looking for a single cottage, hence we drove past twice My advice would be to ignore sat nav as its unable to locate property. Use owners directions. Location of property was ideally situated for us to visit and enjoy the Llyn peninsula We would return to glan awel and recommend it to family and friends.

    Interesting to read the history of the building. It was comfortable, clean and the kitchen was extremely well equipped. Great views from the dining area. Very quiet and peaceful. We walked into Nefyn several times, although harder coming back up the hill! We would love to return soon.

  • "Cottage was lovely."

    But not walking distance to the town. Had to use the car all the time. Shame because beautiful cottage. Needs recliner chairs for garden to relax. Very strong smell of diesel in the garden. Dog was poorly one night not sure if it was due the the diesel smell or not. Would book nefyn again but not this property due to location. Road very narrow and dangerous and too far to walk. Many thanks julie

    We're very pleased you liked the cottage and thank you for the scoring. We'll look into the diesel smell. Thank you for your comments. Property Owner
