  • "Lovely, large sized family house with great equipment for children."

    Trampoline and hot tub provided hours of fun. The kitchen was well stocked including children’s cutlery and crockery. A small supply of tea, coffee and sugar would have been great and maybe a bag of wood for the fire. Also the lack of towels was a big let down for us. The children’s bedroom was great and overall comfortable enough but I think the house could do with a bit of tlc, the walls were really quite dirty and there is damp around most of the windows. The window around the attic room had toilet roll stuck in between the seal, I assume to prevent a draft. The technology in the house sounded great but it was actually a bit annoying with the lights coming on automatically, meant you ended up waking other members of the household when going to the toilet and lights were on unnecessarily. There was also quite a strong smell of damp in the living room, possibly from the ac unit. The tiles in the main bathroom need a good scrub as they’re covered in mold around the shower. The carpets are quite grubby. It’s a lovely sized house but could really do with a spruce up and a deep clean. I think for price paid it requires an extra pizazz.

  • "We had a wonderful festive stay Murmur y Mor."

    We were very surprised when we arrived and saw the house all ready for the holidays and found some little treats left for us to enjoy. It was our first time spending Christmas together as a family for 4 years and the house exceeded our expectations. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the living space was very well suited to our numbers and the kitchen/dining area had everything we needed to cater for a large family Christmas. The kids were more than entertained by the outside space for the duration and the hot tub was a lovely addition (even in Dec!). Anytime we needed information on anything all we had to do was check out the information guide provided and it was there. Location wise it is just a short walk to a lovely beach and the locals were all super friendly. Would highly recommend this property for any family ocassion!

  • "We went for 3 nights We went for 3 nights."

    A family of 10 adults and 6 children. Lovely home size wise perfect. Location was easy enough to find. Contact from the owner was really good all info sent across early so we knew what was going on and open communication was great via WhatsApp. The issues we had were: 1: cold water showers!!!!! Yep 3 out of 16 had hot showers each day and the rest had cold. There was one electric shower in the house which was really poor considering there were two other bathrooms. 2. When we arrived the windows had been left open and this meant the carpets were wet with rain. 3. The front lounge carpets really do smell bad and it’s very obvious. They could really do with a wash or shake n vac. The rest of the house inc the bedrooms were all fine. 4. One 4 slice toaster…. Breakfast time was a nightmare really could do with two toasters. 5. Having to bring ALL your own essentials as you only get half a toilet roll and minimal hand soap in each bathroom. Really for the amount this property charges that was a basic. 6. Bringing all your own towels. We paid close the £4,000 for this booking and booked early to avoid disappointment but the price for the property was £3,000 ish for 7 Nights the week after we left which was super disappointing to see. But to pay that money and the owners can’t even put 20 towels together is a real shame. 7. Thinking of having a BBQ? Don’t it was left filthy and no chance we would cook on that. 8. The cleaners aren’t great lots of house spiders and bugs in the corners. These of course aren’t even big things that honestly can’t be fixed for a much better experience. To be told explicitly on booking too no early check in or late departure not available is a shame. We were like the home alone crew in the morning trying to be out for 10am. Overall a first time in a cottage and disappointed to be honest and no discount or reimbursement for the poor shower situation. It was raised with the owner and he said there is one electric shower installed the week before in the main bathroom so they’re clearly aware it’s an issue and there’s info about the tank but it’s not adding up on any of the days we were there it seems as though they have a control to switch the hot water off. To then be told the water tap was left on when no one was home is a poor excuse.

  • "We have just returned from a lovely holiday at Murmur Y Mor a couple of days ago."

    Jason (the owner) couldn't of been more helpful throughout our stay, providing us all the details on how to use their 'smart home' and checking in once we had arrived to ensure everything was okay. The property was perfect for our large family as we were having multi generation week away (from age 7 weeks old to 81!) there was plenty of space for everyone to relax and we really appreciated having the shower room on the bottom floor. You can tell how much effort and love has gone into creating this home and it defiantly has a family feel. The position of the property is perfect, and is a very short 10 minute walk to the beach, and 15 to the local brewery (highly recommend). It is also about a 15/20 minutes from anywhere you want to go (Pwhelli, Abersoch, Cricceth) so lots of places to visit when its a bit rainy. For food you absolutely have to visit Y Bryncynan, the food was amazing. We will certainly be back!

    Jason couldn’t have been more helpful throughout the week. Loads of information provided prior to the stay and the smart house didn’t disappoint! The outside area was fantastic for the kids who spent all their time out there and the living and dining areas of the house were super comfy! Fabulous coastal walks from the house - the walk to Ty Coch is a must. A perfect location for exploring the area - would highly recommend.

    The house was wonderful, and catered for all of our needs fully. It’s a spacious property which allowed us all to be a family together and celebrate a happy event in comfort and luxury. Communication from the owner was excellent. We received all key information and more. The property was comfortable, welcoming, clean and modern. Everything you’d want in a home from home was there and more. There wasn’t a member of our party who didn’t highly rate the house. The children especially loved the trampoline, and the parents at ease knowing they were safe in the secure rear garden. It’s a wonderful place to stay for all ages and provides an opportunity to explore what is a delightful place. We had a fabulous time and would highly recommend this property to anyone, it was a memorable experience and the property most definitely added to experience. I can’t rate this highly enough, it was fabulous. Many thanks.

The property

An exceptional family holiday base sitting within the desirable coastal town of Nefyn, Murmur Y Mor offers an unforgettable experience for your escape to Wales.

Providing accommodation for up to sixteen guests across three beautifully furnished floors, this 'Smart house' is a true gem to be found.

This property Sleeps 14 Adults and 2 Children up to the age of 10 only.

Park up at the front of the property where you can find an electric charging point, before stepping into the porch, admiring the Nefyn emblem embossed on the floor before kicking off your shoes in the spacious hallway.

Gather together within the sitting room, lighting up the woodburning stove in the exposed stone inglenook as you snuggle up to watch a film on the Smart TV to offer you the very best on your relaxing retreat, with a piano in here too sure to provide hours of entertainment for the musician of the group.

Move through into the sleek and stylish dining room where a long table takes centre stage where you can get together for quality time with your loved ones, before venturing out of the patio doors to the hot tub where you can enjoy an afternoon soak, with the dining room television visible from here too so you can catch up with all your favourite shows whilst submerged in true tranquility.

A couple of steps up from the dining room will bring you to the first half of the impressive kitchen hosting a large electric range cooker, fridge/freezer and a dishwasher, while the adjoining door taking you past the convenient wet room brings you to the second half hosting even more high quality amenities to assist in your home-cooking.

When it's time to rest, venture up the staircase to find four inviting bedrooms resting on the first floor, made up of a wonderful children's room with two double beds and two bunks with the true wonder being the clouds painted on the ceiling and twinkling lights imitating stars offering the perfect way to send your little ones off to sleep, with both the master king-size bedroom with its very own en-suite bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and one Super King bedroom and one double bedroom served by the rustic-styled bathroom with a wonderful sunken bath to sink into.

Take the staircase up to the second floor to find the two hideaways of a king-size room with a travel cot and a twin room, both tucked away beneath the eaves of the room and offering a lovely escape for those seeking a sleeping spot away from the excitement of the group.

Some of the bedrooms are equipped with their own Smart TVs so you can watch a film to send you off to sleep from the comfort of the covers, as well as boasting ample storage space for all of your personal belongings.

Outside the wonder only continues where you can find the delight of the hot tub with an outdoor shower for a rinse before stepping over to the bar for a refreshing pint of Moretti from the beer tap, with plenty of seating to relax on as the barbecue sizzles away and the little ones delight at the climbing wall and sunken trampoline.

The local town of Nefyn makes a highly desirable base for a coastal retreat at any time of year, with a good selection of pubs and restaurants when you don't feel like cooking as well as convenience stores to pick up any fresh ingredients for a hearty breakfast.

The main attraction of the town is its two mile stretch of sandy beach, with views towards the three peaks of The Rival Mountains, beautiful waters and a number of rockpools to explore, it's sure to provide a memorable day out for you and your loved ones at any time of the year.

Visit the Llŷn Maritime Museum to learn more of the rich history of the area, before enjoying a picnic on the sweeping cliffs of the town whilst soaking in your scenic surroundings.

The beautiful beaches of both Pwllheli and Abersoch are within easy reach too, the latter being extremely popular with families for its safe swimming and array of watersports, while slightly further afield you can find the charming town of Porthmadog, home to even more eateries offering something for every taste, as well as a station for the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway, a must-see for the keen trainspotter offering a different way to explore the delights of the area.

Visit the Italianate village of Portmeirion to discover beautiful architecture, traditional gelateria, award-winning restaurants, quaint shops and much more, or explore the beauty of the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park slightly further afield for all manner of outdoor attractions, a rewarding experience for the avid adventure seeker with its truly unrivaled scenery.

In easy reach of so many fantastic coastal and countryside attractions, Murmur Y Mor is a spectacular family holiday home for your escape to Wales.
