  • "Absolute gem of a cottage, the grounds are beautifully maintained and looked after."

    The host met us on arrival and showed us round, she really made us feel welcome. The cottage is very spacious inside with everything you could need for a wonderful holiday. The only thing it would benefit from would be a wall mounted shower head and curtain in the main bathroom.

  • "Lovely, spacious property, ideal for large family groups."

    Beautifully furnished and generally very well equipped, although, as mentioned in the feedback of others, a hair dryer and a shower screen in the main bathroom would be helpful additions. Host, Mary, lives on site and was helpful, friendly and communicative. Really enjoyed our stay!

  • "Excellent property and perfect for our family of 5 , grandparents and a dog!"

    Thanks for a wonderful stay. Front door was jamming as was discussed. Only comment for longer term would be a shower curtain or cubicle in main bathroom would be beneficial.

  • "The owners were absolutely delightful and couldn't do enough for us to ensure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable."

    However, we expected a hair dryer and towels to be provided but this didn't spoil our stay. Can highly recommend the Shippons.

  • "We were sad when we had to leave!"

    The house was great, surrounded by beautiful scenery, it would have been hard to not have a good time. Beautiful house with a great garden to relax in, close to Abersoch village & beach plus local shop just round the corner. Would highly recommend and hope to return again ourselves.

  • "Property in general was satisfactory however some areas require improvement."

    Sofas are quite uncomfortable and would benefit from the cushions being refilled. The bed in the large family room is uncomfortable and would benefit from a new mattress. On a practical level the main bathroom would benefit from a main shower as accessing the ensuite when a large party can be tricky. Quite a few light bulbs out so no lighting in the hall, easy to resolve. Ensuite shower blocked so would recommend checking in between guests. Good location for accessing Abersoch.
