  • "WOW WOW and Thrice WOW!"

    !! What can we say..? We had the most wonderful Christmas at Bryn Aber Bach from the moment of arrival until departure. We were warmly welcomed by Ursula, Greg and the beautiful Bella and given a brief tour of the cottage.We were also welcomed with some wonderful home baked scones, jam and mince pies as well as some essentials - milk, welsh butter and cheese and some fabulous peanut butter and banana treats for our dog, Dotty. The cottage had been tastefully decorated for Christmas. The cleanliness was impeccable as were all the facilities, everything you could wish to use in the kitchen is on hand and no detail as been left out even down to everything Dotty needed, The bedrooms are wonderfully decorated and comfortable as are both bathrooms. The Hot tub is absolutely amazing - we spent many an hour warming ourselves listening to the owls and other woodland creatures. Ursula and Greg were on hand for anything that was needed (We ran out of logs one evening and they were more than happy to supply more) but kept a respectful distance even offering to Doggy sit when we went to Portmeirion for the afternoon. Their communication was great and non intrusive - for example, messaging us before coming round to check the hot tub. On Christmas Day we were given some home made chocolate truffles which were absolutely delicious! We thoroughly felt at home whilst staying and cannot wait to return, it is a beautiful cottage, fantastically decorated and catered for and we cannot wait until we can visit again - we really did not want to go home! After staying in many self catering cottages over the years this is by far the best equipped, cleanest, furnished and friendliest place we have stayed. Thank you so much Ursula, Greg and Bella -we hope to return soon. Craig, Sarah, Jack and Dotty.

    Thank you for your lovely comments Sarah. We enjoyed meeting you all and look forward to seeing you all again soon. Happy New year. Ursula, Greg and Bella Property Owner

  • "Cottage is beautiful."

    Cosy and clean with everything you could ever need. Everything was brand new, they provided milk, bread, butter, cheese, chocolate, coffee, sugar etc which was very thoughtful along with a card to greet us personally. Hot tub is huge. The surrounding area is beautiful. The washer drier and dishwasher was very handy. Owners live next door which we didn't know prior to booking as we like to see nobody on our secluded holidays but they were very curtious. They provided for our dogs too. Treats, blankets, poo bags and dishes. Which was a lovely touch. Only thing I would say is that the listing says two smart televisions but it's only the one which is in the bedroom. But that's only a small bit of feedback as everything else was spot on perfect. Cottage and the rooms down to the carpets were very comfortable and well done.

    Thanks so much for your lovely review. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you also for pointing out about the TV. The listing has now been updated to reflect a smart TV in the lounge and a Freeview TV in the Master bedroom. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Property Owner

The property

Chwilog 2.3 miles.

Tucked away in the quaint village of Llangybi near Chwilog in Gwynedd, next to the owner's home, is this fantastic two-bedroom Grade II listed cottage, Bryn Aber Bach.

Enjoying a superb location within a conservation area, as well as an interior which has been finished to a high standard and perfectly blends contemporary and traditional touches, Bryn Aber Bach makes for a wonderful pet-friendly dwelling for two couples or a family of four plus their canine companion who are looking for their next adventure to North Wales.

Park up on the spacious driveway, before unloading your bags and taking in your peaceful surroundings.

Step inside your home-from-home for the trip and unlace your walking boots in the convenient porch area, before hanging your coats and giving your pawed pal a quick towel dry and heading into the main living areas.

Be welcomed into the well-equipped kitchen, where you can look forward to whipping up flavourful dishes with the help of the electric oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and handy dishwasher, ensuring a fuss-free clean-up!

Settle down at the dining table for four as you tuck-in to a delicious meal and make plans for the days ahead, followed by a delicious frothy coffee from the Nespresso coffee maker.

If the weather is nice, why not take advantage and fire up the barbecue in the rear enclosed garden and dine alfresco, as your four-legged friend stretches their legs?

If you’re not ready for the evening to end, treat yourself to an indulgent soak in the bubbling hot tub for a night under the stars.

Retreat inside to the sitting room, where you can snuggle up on the three-seater sofa and select your favourite film from the Smart TV, or choose a book to enjoy on one of two quality armchairs, as the woodburning stove crackles nearby.

As your eyes grow heavy, climb the stairs to the first floor where you will find two well-presented king-size bedrooms, one with TV and en-suite bathroom, the other with en-suite shower room, both perfect for preparing for the day in style.

Explore your local surroundings where, just a stone’s throw away, you will find the Cadw Heritage site of St Cybi’s Well, where you can wander the historic surroundings of a secluded holy well that rests at the base of the Llŷn Peninsula.

Take the short drive over to Chwilog, where you can sample the local delights in the welcoming Y Madryn pub, ideal for those evenings where you fancy a night off from the kitchen, along with the popular Povey Butchers, where you can stock up on ingredients and essentials to enjoy in the comfort of Bryn Aber Bach.

Next stop is the bustling town of Criccieth, home to an impressive castle built by the former Welsh prince, Llywelyn the Great, and the beautiful Criccieth Beach, where you can bathe on the sands, paddle the shores or build sandcastles with the little ones.

Venture into the Snowdonia National Park, where you can embark up the famous 3,560-ft Snowdon Peak which offers incomparable views across the park, or if you don’t fancy making the hike, the Snowdon Mountain Railway is available from the village of Llanberis.

There are scenic walking trails aplenty, as well as the historic village of Beddgelert, where you can visit the renowned Gelerts Grave or hop aboard a vintage steam train at the heritage railway station.

With endless opportunities to make long-lasting memories, choose Bryn Aber Bach for your next holiday.
