  • "We’ve enjoyed our 3rd stay in this beautiful cottage."

    It’s warm, spacious and ideally placed to explore the area. It was unfortunate that there were a couple of plumbing problems during our stay but the owners were brilliant at communicating and trying to get the situation resolved- nothing serious enough to spoil our lovely week.

  • "The property is a lovely house but there are a few maintenance issues."

    The plug in the upstairs bathroom sink could not be released easily. I ran a bath and went back up to get in it and the water had drained out even though the plug was in properly. The hot water upstairs was not very hot and the central heating did not work properly which I reported to the owner, thankfully there was log burners to compensate for the lack of heating. Although the hot tub was new we found it to be dirty. The shower head was leaking. The property did not appear to have been cleaned properly as there was cobwebs on the lamps. We are not really complainers and love the house as we have stayed her many times this being our 9th time but just feel the all round maintenance has slipped a bit. We paid a lot of money in the current climate for our 7 night stay

    The property felt like a real home from home. We used the hot tub in the dark evenings which was lovely after a day's walking. The heated front porch was a great place to dry outdoor clothing. We will definitely be back!!!

    The owner was so helpful with ideas for days out, restaurants and dog walks. Would definitely go back. Lovely walk to a wonderful beach with lots of water pools when the tide went out which is ideal for small children. Short drive into Porthmadog to a local supermarket and a very tasty fish and chop shop.

  • "Well situated within a 10 minute stroll to the lovely dog friendly beach."

    We met the cleaners on our arrival purely due to the fact the previous inconsiderate occupants hadn’t vacated until 12.30pm!!! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay especially with the added benefit of the hot tub for pure relaxation. The garden is totally dog safe which was a bonus. The Wi-Fi was brilliant and we were able to stream Netflix with no problems. Very peaceful with the occasional golfer on the course behind the house.

    So sorry about the previous guests, it’s not a good start to your holiday having to wait to get in. Thank you for your patience and understanding, and we’re glad you enjoyed your holiday. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely stunning property; cleaned to perfection and everything you would EVER need to hand."

    I've never been in a self catering home with so many kitchen utensils, condiments and extras before! I can assure you if you have forgotten something they will have it; this place had much more than my home!!! My daughters loved the toys, games and hot tub which backs onto the golf course with sheep running around freely! The property is not overlooked at all as it has trees surrounding it, golfers are few and far between and the community hall next door wasn't open. The dogs loved the garden and we loved how enclosed it was including the drive way so the dogs could be let in and out of the car without worrying about the road. Such a quiet, relaxing and comfortable place, perfect for our family to explore Snowdonia and Anglesey. We did walk into Porthmadog and took the circular route which wasn't ideal for pushchairs but a beautiful walk nonetheless. Black Rock sands down the road perfect for all the family. Owners were on hand when we had a query later on the week and they were so lovely and accommodating. I would highly recommend this wonderful property to anyone and would love to come back and stay again!

    Thank you so much for the amazing feedback, it’s much appreciated . Property Owner

    The garden is fully enclosed and secure. The parking as good. The cottage is warm and comfortable with plenty of space. The downstairs shower room is perfect for when you use the hot tub, which is in a great place for stargazing. The whole cottage was spotlessly clean and it’s maintained very well. The sofas are a little soft and the kitchen could do with a better set of kitchen knives, but that’s pretty close to perfect. We loved our stay and hope to return next year.

    With the beach a short walk away and shops and other sights nearby it was ideal for us.

Definitely want to visit again in summer and see what else it has to offer

    Fantastic cottage, lovely and cosy especially when log burner on. Underfloor heating kept us warm also. Lots of lovely goodies on arrival, consisting of choccies,biscuits, Baileys, Prosecco, mince pies and more. Also a welcome pack with washing up liquid and general items. So so welcome. After morning walk on beach, into hot tub, then food and drinks in well equipped kitchen. Then relax in chrismassy lounge with roaring log fire or conservatory for evening star gazing. Such a fantastic end to a chaotic year. Would definitely recommend. Ideal for walks in local area. Little shop opposite .. was not open all the time but as it was New Year we were not surprised. Will definitely return.

    The beach is about 10 mins walk, or 15 mins to an even better, secluded sandy cove. The owners have been very thoughtful in what is provided - a special welcome pack included tea, coffee, biscuits and various things to make sure we felt confident about everything being covid-free. In addition, the cottage had been fogged, then cleaned and a set of crockery and cutlery sterilised in the dishwasher. All this felt very reassuring, without being obtrusive. Although local cafes etc were open for take-aways, slots had to be booked well in advance, so we really appreciated the kitchen, which was very fully-equipped for self catering. We enjoyed the garden, with its lovely views and hot tub, and the spacious cottage gave our teenage children the space (and wi-fi!) they needed for down-time. This is an ideal cottage for a relaxing stay, with easy access to local attractions.

    We knew it was of a high standard from the photographs provided, but the small touches and high finish of the interior is exceptional. The owners have really created a home from home, with everything needed to enjoy a first class stay. A lovely touch, we thought, was providing the wood for the log burners free of charge, along with dishwasher tabs, hand soap etc.. A rare generosity in this day and age, and we were incredibly grateful indeed. So nice not to have to rush out to buy small items you take for granted. The hot tub is a delight. impeccably maintained and a joy to use. A ten minute walk to Black Rock Sands, made this cottage a delight in terms of peace and luxury combined.

The property

A lovingly-restored semi-detached cottage with hot tub, formally a school house, situated a ten minute walk from the beach in Morfa Bychan.

Refurbished to a high standard throughout, great care has been taken to create a warm, comfortable Morfa Bychan cottage in this idyllic seaside holiday village.

The use of quality slate flooring with underfloor heating, oak block worktops and high-end furnishings, along with two woodburners, mean that this Morfa Bychan cottage is welcoming all year round.

Outside, a delightful garden with luxury hot tub and views up towards Moel-y-Gest, backing onto the 4th hole of the reputable village golf course, make this an ideal Morfa Bychan cottage base for exploring this popular area and then relaxing in the sunshine afterwards.

The famous Black Rock Sands, with miles of safe golden sandy beach, is a short walk, and all the village amenities with shops and pub are within 5 minutes' stroll.

Porthmadog, the Ffestiniog Railway or the Italianate village of Portmeirion are all within easy reach of this Morfa Bychan cottage, which offers a wonderful base for walkers, golfers, beach lovers or those who simply want to spend time together in a quality cottage in beautiful surroundings.
