  • "Lovely little property, close to the action of Abersoch but far enough away to enjoy the countryside."

    The views are fantastic. All the facilities you want are there, including smart TV. It’s about 15 mins walk to the town, Abersoch is lovely if a little pricey (can recommend Crust for pizza, 10 mins down the hill.

    Only feedback from a mobility prospective front step was a little high and stairs up from kitchen a little hard to navigate for elderly. A second rail would have helped. Great base to access to all the area with amazing views highly recommend.

    It was well equipped and cosy. The location is good, only a short distance out of Abersoch and in easy reach of some lovely beaches around the Llyn Peninsula.

  • "We all had a lovely stay at the grain store."

    Great location & in walking distance of Abersoch ( steep hill walking back) so may be unsuitable for elderly. The owners live next door in the farm house, but it doesn’t feel too intrusive, plus they are at hand if you were to need them. The cottage had everything you need, including a dishwasher/washer & tumble dryer which was really handy! The only improvement I can suggest, is that the bathroom/shower room could do with an upgrade, it’s very old/worn looking.

  • "Disappointed with the cleanliness on arrival, had to clean some area's ourselves, although the hoover and mop where extremely dirty."

    Couldn't get the front door to lock which meant we had to leave the property unlocked when going out.

    Sorry you were unable to lock the front door, on investigation we discovered that the lock was a little stiff when loking from the outside but locked easily from the inside. This has now been rectified. We use a cleaning firm to do our changeovers and this is the first complaint we've had this season. We had done a quick visual check before your arrival and seen nothing obviously amiss. We have also contacted the cleaners to see if there had been any problems and they said not. It would be helpful to know which areas were a problem to ensure it doesn't recur. Property Owner

    It was spotlessly clean. Very cosy. The double bed mattress was super super soft- so may not suit some folk. The single beds were firmer so that fixed that problem!!

  • "The cottage has a superb view from the kitchen and lounge windows."

    It was very peaceful and spacious for two people. Although there is no enclosed garden for exercising your dog, there is a grassed area just outside the back door which we found more than adequate. The decked area outside the lounge door has a gate at the bottom of the ramp making it secure and dog safe. The cottage contains everything needed for self catering including a full sized fridge/ freezer. We will certainly return to this lovely place and area.

  • "S accommodation was perfectly adequate."

    The linen was clean and the beds comfortable. The mattress was a tad too soft for me, but that’s just me! Due to COVID, there was no paper info etc about the area, or board games and the like. The Freeview TV was ok. I’d suggest bringing a fire stick or some DVDs perhaps? The WiFi was found using through using 2 routers, depending on where you were in the small building, which was interesting. Download a few films maybe? The whole was fine and I would come back to if, but it just needs a little more tlc to make it great. The kitchen could do with an upgrade and the whole place broadcast it was a holiday let, smell included. We had our dog; there is a garden but it’s not enclosed, just for info. There are some beautiful photographs of the local scenery, on the walls. It is what it is. It is good value and as I said, I would come back.

  • "Well where do I start."

    It is a shame that this property had not been maintained and cared for as the location was stunning. The outside area was poor with overgrown shrubbery, a patio which had with dirty chairs and so much dirt and grime just awful and unusable ( advertised full use of). The cottage inside was well worn and grubby especially the kitchen; a cooker with no dial controls, food deposits down the side, wooden spoons when wet were slimy due to their age, rusty old cooking tins and a first aid kit with no contents ( advertised full use of). Dispite being told of the extra cleaning procedures due to Covid-19 we found this property to be well below standard. Standards should be of the highest quality at at all times paying customers expect.

  • "Abersoch is great, lots of good walking and the most fabulous beaches and views."

    We would definitely return. Plenty of eating and drinking choices whilst still retaining a village feel. Dog owners note many parts of coastal path require dog on a lead due to farmland abutting. But lots of off-lead opportunities and dog friendly sections of the beaches. The Grain Store is about 10 mins downhill walk into the centre of Abersoch. Its perfectly adequate for a weeks stay with a quirky lay-out and clean enough where it matters. Comfy beds. We were supposed to get an e-mail in advance from owners which never came, don't know why, but we missed the fact that no towels are provided - perhaps this should be clear in the property details? But not to worry, bath towels were offered to help us out when I asked, just a stress you dont need on arrival. Ramp to front door, but be aware there are a few steep steps to kitchen/bathroom if you have difficulties. No welcome pack provided but that didnt worry us - Asda in Pwhelli and large Londis in the village. Owners have field adjacent and we were permitted to use this for the dog, useful in a morning! Otherwise there is a small section of grass outside the back door. A very enjoyable week.

    The owners are very pleasant and helpful. The accommodation is compact but caters for most with a fully equipped kitchen. The weather was fantastic so we spent most of our time outside. Area for improvement would be the lounge which has only small windows. The property would greatly benefit from the installation of French doors letting in more light and giving the room access to those wonderful views.

The attractive harbour village of Abersoch is situated on the Llyn Peninsula in a region of Wales renowned for its outstanding scenery and varied walking. The village, situated between two glorious bays, is one of the most popular sailing venues in North Wales and important sailing regattas are held there throughout the summer months. Numerous shops cater for the tourist as well as pubs, restaurants and cafes. There are also opportunities for golfers as there is a course just outside the village and horse riding facilities are also available nearby. Watersports enthusiasts are also well catered for, particularly windsurfing, water skiing and dinghy sailing, not to mention renowned surfing at Port Neigwl (Hell’s Mouth). The long, sandy Abersoch Main Beach is probably the most popular beach in the area. There is a wonderful selection of beaches in the surrounding area of the Llyn Peninsula, including the beautiful and often quiet Porth Ceriad, with it's high cliffs, and sandy Porth Oer ("Whistling Sands"). Most of the coastline is owned by the National Trust and there are many remote bays, sandy beaches and cliffs, as well as wildlife havens like Bardsey Island to explore.
