  • "Bwthyn Bach is lovely, cosy cottage, perfect for the two of us and our dogs."

    It had everything we needed, including a gas hob which we’ve found to be a rarity in holiday cottages. The location is great, just 4 minutes drive to the beach and the village of Nefyn just a short stroll away. Despite this the cottage feels like it’s in the middle of the countryside. It’s so peaceful with just fields between the farm buildings and the cliffs. We loved seeing the horses in the field behind the cottage. We especially enjoyed Nefyn Beach, Morfa Nefyn Beach / Porthdinllaen and the Ty Coch Inn. Also fish ‘n’ chips from the Ty Cod. Many Thanks to Peta & Family, we hope to return soon.

  • "A beautiful little cottage in a great location."

    Everything you could need is within easy walking distance of the property and a walk along the picturesque coastal path is a must. There are some fantastic beaches within either walking or driving distance of the cottage with areas great for dogs. Would definitely recommend this cottage, a real home from home. This property is a credit to the owner.

    Thank you so much for your kind feedback. We hope to welcome you back to Bwthyn Bach very soon. Peta & family Property Owner

    Needed a break in the country to chill after busy time at work. Beach and village in walking distance. Peta the owner is a lovely lady who made us both feel very welcome and added touch of a gift hamper that was lovely. Loved the roll top bath and comfortable bed! We loved our stay here and would definitely recommend to others and we will return for another stay. Thank you.Sarah and Steve

  • "Lovely cottage, tastefully converted from an attached stone outbuilding."

    The property owner was very friendly and helpful and was available if we needed any help. Comfortable furniture and lovely decor. Outside space was lovely but unfortunately as it was November we were unable to sit out and enjoy it. Kitchen was well equipped but I was intrigued why we should need 3 different ways of making a cup of coffee! In the end I went out and bought a jar of instant! Handy for the Spar supermarket which was well stocked. There were 3 maintenance issues which Peta was aware of and she assured us that they would be put right.(Two on the stairs and the cupboard on the landing which wouldn't stay closed) The only problem we found was the stairs, as they were steep, had a bend in them and the only 'aid' was a looped rope on the stone wall. It looked very attractive and was in keeping with the decor, but as two 80-year olds, we struggled to get up and down to the bedroom and the bathroom. From our point of view a rigid hand rail would have been better. The cottage was as advertised a 10 minute walk from the beach but as the road to it was down a very steep road, we only walked there once and were reluctant to drive to the car park at the bottom in case the car 'ran away' with us. The whole area is really beautiful and we felt we had missed out because we were restricted by our inability to walk very far. Perhaps we didn't read the information given for this cottage closely enough and we should have chosen somewhere different but all in all we enjoyed our stay there. However it is unlikely that we will go back.

    Thank you for your feedback and I am sorry the cottage and area were not suitable for your needs. The description and photos on the website clearly show the stairs and location of the cottage in relation to the beach and as discussed you may have been more comfortable in the barn conversion next door which has a downstairs bedroom & bathroom with walk in shower. We would love you to return and would be happy to offer you a special price for the barn for your next stay. Property Owner

  • "We had a great week Bwthyn Bach the cottage is really lovely and comfortable."

    Lovely touches like quality bedding and being in control of the heating was great. The welcome pack was very much appreciated too. There is a small garden out the back with a table and 2 chairs such a nice place to relax in the evening sunshine after a hard day's walking on the nearby coastal paths. We even had a visit from 3 little lambs in the garden that totally confused our dog when they started playing with her as she thinks she should do the chasing. The cottage is ideally situated with great walks and beachs in all directions right from the front door. Very close to major towns and only 30 Mile's or so from Snowdonia range of mountain walks. We had a couple of issues with kitchen equipment while we were there, which I mentioned to Peta the owner. Peta took the issues on board and took action to solve them. Thank you Peta for a lovely place to stay we will definitely be visiting again soon.

    The cottage is truly an authentic barn conversion that is steeped in history, the setting is idyllic, there are birds singing and horses in the shed. The coastal path is just outside and the views are breathtaking, even at the beginning of March it was beautiful. The owner has taken a lot of time to ensure the cottage has everything needed and the file is packed with a range of invaluable information, the old photographs included are wonderful as is the well in the village. This is an ideal holiday for those wanting a rural escape by the sea and there is so much to see in walking distance and also many other places only a short car ride away. It is THE best place we have ever stayed for accommodation and location and can’t wait to return.
