  • "Appreciated the owner being on hand and apologetic about the heating not working, took a few hours for the place to heat up."

    Surprised at the lack of basic amenities in the kitchen that we have normally had in self catering stays ie no foil, oil, salt, pepper, coffee, tea towels, casserole dishes, scourer and dishcloths these are normally all provided, thankfully spar was open on Christmas day. Hot tub was dirty with sediment in the bottom and wasn't warm enough to use on the first evening. Sofa was worse for wear and lacked support to sit on, flat cushions. Fire was nice. Lacked the homely feeling due to these things otherwise nice place.

    Very clean; warm and welcoming with lovely views. Great hot tub. Would have been helpful to know that kitchen basics like dishwasher tablets; bin liners and cleaning cloths are not provided. Happy to be corrected if we missed this in the booking information.

  • "Cottage was brilliant - had everything we needed for a comfortable stay."

    We came for a 30th birthday and all guests were very happy! Only thing which could be improved is the bathroom window - let’s in a massive draft to the point I kept thinking it was open. Other than that we had an amazing stay. Perfect area, 12 minute drive to some amazing walks on the Llyn Peninsula and a lovely warm hot tub and fire to return home to. Will definitely stay again. Many thanks!

  • "The location and view from the Cottage is spectacular."

    The managers were very friendly and approachable and responded immediately to every request, including sharing rhubarb and strawberries from their garden! The facilities and hot tub are first class. 2 minor items to note: 1) the wording in the description said: Two bedrooms: 2 x king-size, which we took to mean there are 2 bedrooms with a king sized bed in each. What there are is one bedroom with a king sized bed, and the 2nd bedroom has 2 individual single beds (see the photos). 2) the wifi worked about half the time. All told, though, it is a wonderful place, very quiet, with great views. Ask Sam, he'll tell you which mountain is Mt. Snowdon!

  • "We enjoyed our stay at the cottage which was presented extremely clean."

    Location wise, this was perfect and we visited many local beaches, walks, towns, Gypsy Wood, scenic railway and a children's farm. We enjoyed the hot tub and found the kitchen facilities all in good working order. Some of the things we would of benefited from and which I feel would be useful for future guests; A corkscrew, coasters / maybe a couple of small side tables, a clock in the living area. We also noted that one of the single mattresses requires changing. We also missed a dining table as the bar stools were difficult with a toddler. The cottage does only have a shower rather than a bath so worth bearing in mind if travelling with young children and also I'd recommend taking some black out temp covers for the windows as my children were up particularly early when the sun rose. I don't want this review to sound negative as we really enjoyed the house and its location and would be happy to stay again as we'd know what to bring with us to make it work better for us a family.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Rhos Y Foel."

    The cottage was clean and tidy, with everything we needed for a weeks stay. The lounge area was comfortable and we made full use of the hot tub, even on the few rainy days we had. The kitchen was well equipped with a dishwasher, large oven, fridge with a small freezer, and a washer/dryer. The drawers had plenty of crockery, pans, trays and utensils. The bedrooms and bathroom were clean and comfortable, although the mattress on the king size bed could do with replacing or flipping. We both had sore backs by the end of the week, and on stripping the bed as per Covid instructions, noticed that there was no support where the mattress had dipped. The cottage was warm and cosy with the underfloor heating. The local garage and shop in Four Crosses (Y Ffor) sells kindling and logs for the wood burner if other residents want to light the wood burner. The garden was secure for our large husky/malamute cross, with an interlinking paddock with the cottage next door giving more secure space (the other cottage was unoccupied). You can enjoy walks along the roads around the site with lovely views of the coast and local woodland. The garden is private and over looks fields and the hills of the Llyn. The owners were around and made us feel welcome, but were not intrusive. We used to live in the area, and have family still living there, so it was an ideal base to safely visit those we could. We enjoyed the beaches and walks around the Llyn Peninsular, including the estuary in Criccieth and the beaches at Morfa Nefyn and Porthdinllaen. Located centrally, we were close to Pwllheli where there are plenty of shops and local independent retailers in the surrounding areas. There are also plenty of retailers in Criccieth, Porthmadog and further afield to Caernarfon and Bangor. Overall, we had a relaxing week in the cottage and would highly recommend the cottage for a peaceful stay.

  • "We stayed here for 4 nights in September, had such a lovely time."

    The cottage is beautiful with nice views over the countryside. We loved watching the horses from the hot tub! All rooms very spacious, nice and warm due to underfloor heating. Kitchen well equipped with lots of pots and pans, even a lunchbox (we found handy for our walk up Snowdon as we’d forgotten ours). The cottage is in a good location to visit Snowdonia, and Nefyn is only a small drive away. From what we could see there weren’t any pubs in walking distance but could be wrong. The only things we could have done with that we didn’t have; - A doormat to wipe your shoes on when you come in - A welcome pack with details of local pubs, takeaways, taxis ect as WiFi not great. Would love to stay here again!

  • "We had a wonderful holiday at Rhos-y-Foel."

    The cottage was beautiful, very modern, warm and comfortable. We met the owner Sam and his wife Georgie who were really friendly and loved having a chat with us but also left us to enjoy our holiday. The beds were very comfy and the underfloor heating was so nice! We loved sitting in the hot tub and watching the night sky in the evening, we saw so many shooting stars. The cottage is about 3 miles from Nefyn and 3 miles from Pwllheli, so it's in close proximity to shops, beaches, bars, etc. The cottage allows pets and we bought my sister's golden retriever Billy, with us, who loved running around the garden, he even made friends with Sam and Georgie's horse, Del, through the fence. We had such a great time, we were sad to leave but hopefully will be back soon!

    Clean, comfortable and modern. Did not really book it for the hot tub, but given the weather conditions it was an asset and used everyday. I can imagine that in winter with the hot tub, fire and underfloor heating this cottage will be provide an amazing break. Oh, the walk in shower is the best we have experienced in many years travelling to North Wales. Plenty of hot water and excellent water pressure. WiFi is slow but be patient, it works. Close to beaches, Snowdonia mountains and not too far from Coed Y Brenin for excellent mountain bike trails. Erica and Bryan Craig

    Close to lots of great beaches/Portmeirion/Snowdon and a nice pub around 3 miles away. Very spacious and hot tub was great to relax in. A guest book would make it easier so we knew how to use heating/hot tub/expectations for the fire etc. Or if a guest book isn’t allowed in Covid times, then an email version (photos etc?) A sweeping brush to clean would help too. The host was very friendly and welcoming. Thanks for a lovely stay. Would highly recommend

  • "The cottage is fitted to a really nice standard."

    The underfloor heating was luxurious and the log burner was cosy. Well located for exploring. Garden is enclosed but small and great for letting dogs out safely. Didn't have any contact with owners. Would have been nice to say hello and have a brief welcome although an information sheet and jams were really useful and a nice touch. We left early for two reasons: one cannot be helped but may be something other holidayers should keep in mind when considering this cottage... - We stayed in February and the weather was generally fine in the day but overnight the winds were really strong and woke us up from the early hours. As such, we didn't feel very rested! The cottage is remote and open to the elements. Would love to stay again but only in summer. - The property is advertised as having wifi. The owners appear to have tried to sort this with a wifi booster, however it doesn't work. We booked due to the wifi as we had work commitments that relied on it. As it was not available, this was an issue and 4g is temperamental. Fine if you are not bothered about this but if it is a necessity for accompanying teenagers or people who may have to work remotely, it is an issue.

    Thank you for your feedback. Regrettably, the weekend you were at our property we were on an amber weather warning, normally our customers feel very refreshed and rested after being in our property. Property Owner

    There was a half empty bag of kindling, in the end we bought are own logs for a couple of small fires during our stay. We also felt that a booklet containing advice on local sites and restaurants, important phone nos etc, should have been available. Also were unable to figure out how to use the hot tub without a manual.

  • "We booked this holiday cottage for a well earned couple of days away, and it didn’t disappoint."

    The location of the cottage was lovely, as were the views of the mountains to the back of the cottage. The decor and finish was to a high standard and the private hot tub was an added bonus which we made the most of!! Dog friendly and not too far away from local beaches and towns for exploring. The bed was comfortable and the shower room very nice. My Husband and I felt very comfortable and relaxed during our time at Rhos Y Foel and wouldn’t hesitate to return! Some aspects for improvement we felt would add to the experience of the cottage are:- Blackout curtains in the master bedroom is an absolute must - in the winter months it perhaps wouldn’t be an issue but whilst we stayed, as soon as the sun started to rise before 5am(!!) the bedroom was extremely light! It made it difficult to ‘lie in’ and feel this is something that could easily be adjusted. The cottage would also benefit from a few more items of kitchenware such as a microwave, tin opener, baking trays and saucepans. It would be useful also to have a toiletries tray in the shower, and some bigger towels as these were on the small side! We understand that in the area the phone signal isn’t great and this was reflected in the WiFi which although was just useable, we ended up using our 4G if needed. Lastly, the check-in & check-out times could be more lenient - as we only stayed for 2 nights, the check in time of after 3pm meant we had less than half a day on arrival, plus only 1 more full day, as checkout was at 10am the following morning. Perhaps allowing slightly earlier check in and slightly later checkout would make it feel less of a rush especially when only spending a couple of nights there. Overall, these are things that could be changed very easily, but we throughly enjoyed our time at the cottage.

  • "This holiday cottage was lovely to stay in and we would stay here again."

    We loved the location; beaches and mountains all within easy reach. The hot tub was great and our whole family enjoyed using it. One added bonus is that the location means we got to see the milky way - the stars were amazing! We have a few suggestions to improve the cottage even further. The wi-fi did not work, we contacted the owners who informed us it was really slow and there was an extender in the house but it didn’t work and the issue was not resolved. We just used our own mobile data for the week, the mobile signal is ok. The kitchen needs more plates and some essential kitchen items such as baking trays, dishes etc. Consider blackout curtains in the main bedroom. Finally there is a washing machine but no way of drying your clothes - an inexpensive clothes horse could fix this. These things wouldn’t stop us staying again, infact our girls are asking when we are going again!

    However, there were hardly any noise and the back of the property was very private saw anyone round the back twice. The views from the back were really open and stunning.
