  • "Arwel is a beautiful, cosy little cottage in the heart of Nefyn."

    We loved our stay, cosy evenings by the fire and a very well designed and modern kitchen-diner. The house was spotless and Jane is a very accommodating and lovely host. Would definitely recommend and we’re looking forward to staying again.

    Good morning Hannah It is really important to me and my team that our guests feel that they have had a holiday .Your feedback is important thank you . I try to think what I would like from a holiday cottage and implement it. Arwel does have that wrap round cosy atmosphere that enables guests to relax and rest. Please do come again . Seasons greetings Jane Property Owner

  • "We have just stayed for a week at Arwel."

    The past two years we have stayed near Abersoch but we fancied I change, and we are so glad we did. The cottage itself had everything you need, clean and very comfortable. We had a quick question about the kitchen/ bathroom tap and the owner came back very quickly. We enjoyed some lovely walks along the coastal path. Visited the community pub which we highly recommend. Also the Tap Room at the brewery, well worth a visit nice atmosphere. Both dog friendly so massive tick for us. Visited a lot of beaches , this time of year our dog friendly. On our last day we went to the pub Y Bryncynan, again dog friendly. The staff and food were very good. The walk to the Ty Coch Inn is a must just check the tide times and opening times. We would definitely be going back to Arwel.

  • "We were a group of 5 adults and 3 dogs staying at Arwel cottage in Nefyn."

    The cottage is very clean, comfortable and cosy. It is situated in a quiet location and has a fantastic garden for adults and the dogs. The location is superb for exploring local beaches, with some fantastic walks nearby. Would benefit from a nice armchair situated in the bay window, however this is our second visit and will not be our last.

    Morning David Thank you for taking the time to provide valuable feedback. It is quite funny that you made the suggestion about an arm chair as I thought the same !. It’s on its way and will be in situs shortly. I agree it’s a very pleasant area to sit . Hoping to see you again soon Kindest regards Jane Property Owner

    Comfortable, clean, good location. Always stayed in Morpha before but Nefyn just as good. Perfect for beach walks and clifftop. Only one miniscule negative. Toaster wasn't upto much. (Ha ha)

  • "Arwel is a cosy, comfortable, beautifully designed/decorated cottage."

    Parking on the no through lane outside is no problem. The enclosed rear garden is great. Nefyn beach is within walking distance, as are 2 excellent village shops. Nefyn is also handy for coastal path walks, Abersoch, Criccieth (eat at Dylans!), Portmerrion and a bit further afield to Angelsey. A fabulous holiday in a fabulous cottage, fully recommended. Thank you Jane x

  • "What a fantastic cottage."

    We were impressed by the high quality of the refurbishment; the owners have obviously not skimped on the costs. The lounge is comfortable with two huge settees, there's a modern bathroom with a fantastic shower, and a new kitchen/diner. The cottage was spotlessly clean and superbly decorated. The seaside theme is subtle (I love the rope lamps) and is continued upstairs. The beds are very comfortable so we slept well. Outside there's a large fully enclosed garden which our dog loved playing in. Despite being close to the village/town centre, the cottage is very quiet. All things considered, this is the best cottage we have stayed in and all being well, we will be back. Nefyn is a lovely place with a fantastic beach in a small bay. The cottage is a 5-minute walk from the beach. The Llyn peninsula is breathtaking. There's so much to see and do that we regretted not booking for longer. We were spoiled with stunning weather which was a bonus. We would highly recommend staying at Arwel. It is a fantastic cottage in a beautiful setting.

    Good morning Paul Wow!.It is extremely touching to receive such personal and complementary feedback. I love my fishermans cottage and I feel thrilled that you did too. We as a team want guests to have a relaxing holiday .It is important to us to maintain a high standard of accommodation. You are correct the Lyn Peninsula has so much to offer with magnificent beaches I would be delighted to welcome you on a return stay to Arwel Best wishes Jane Property Owner

  • "What a fantastic holiday home."

    We stayed as a group of 4 persons and 2 dogs and the cottage was perfect for our needs. Clean, comfortable and relaxing with a lovely garden to sit in, felt like home from home. Nefyn has great amenities such as Local Shop, Community Pub, Caffi Ni and an Indian Restaurant / takeaway all within walking distance. Opposite the cottage is a small path which takes you to an excellent beach and cafe. Ideally situated for exploring this beautiful part of Wales, we are looking forward to returning to Arwel Cottage.

    Great property , well equipped and dog friendly. Beach was lovely and safe , not crowded like some more well known ones. Actually got a couple of swims in and the kids had a whale of a time. Was lucky enough to bump in to Jane , the owner. She was lovely and obviously cares a great deal about Arwel and that people enjoy their stays. She leaves you to it generally which works great. Will be back

    It really makes me smile when my guests enjoy my fisherman’s cottage that I love so much. Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. I hope you will return to Nefyn and my little blue cottage. Kind regards Jane Property Owner
