  • "Lovely house , well situated for amenities and the views across the bay were excellent."

    Nice to see the castle from the top floor which was illuminated at night. Plenty of crockery, cutlery etc as well as cleaning materials. Have booked again for September.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that you will be returning in September. Property Owner

  • "Morfin was in a great location and was very comfortable for the week for ourselves, my father and our two whippets."

    The owners were we're responsive, helpful and friendly. We had everything we needed and where able to use the heating when required when the weather became a little chilly in the evening. Criccieth is a great place with lovely beach walk, ice-cream, fish and chips and Dylans boardwalk on a sunny day is so lovely. The top floor carpet and bed coverings had some large dog hairs and could benefit from a good hoovering but we appreciate that this is a dog friendly house. This didn't detract from our holiday at all. It's just a housekeeping comment and easily addressed. Thanks for our stay, we had such a lovely time and would recommend Morfin.

    Thank you for taking the time to write your feedback. We are glad you found the house comfortable . Apologies for the dog hairs. Guests are expected not to allow dogs on beds but…….We do hoover on changeover day but obviously not enough on this occasion. Property Owner

  • "An excellent property very well equipped and situated in the perfect spot for the beach, pubs,shops etc."

    One small thing - though listed as dog friendly and indeed it was inside, the external space was a bit limited. However, the beach was just outside and George and Bernard had a great time!

    Thank you for your kind comments. Our dog enjoys the beach too. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was perfect."

    Great location, close to all amenities especially the ice cream shop/cafe! The owners Mike and Jilll were lovely in every respect, informative prior to the visit, helpful at the time we collected the keys and generous in what they did to accommodate our needs.

    Thank you so much for the positive feedback. It was a surprise to discover that one of your group was the brother of the man from whom we bought the house. I hope he approved of the changes. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely week at Morfin, and thought the house was so charming and welcoming."

    The living room is particularly attractive and cosy, and all the bedrooms are very comfortable with good quality mattresses. The top room has magnificent views over sea and mountains, and is fitted out to a wonderfully high spec, including its wet room ensuite. The kitchen is well equipped and cheerful. As a dog owner I did wonder before the holiday where I could find a grassy place for my dog, but was happy to find a grassy alleyway at the end of the garden which my dog was happy to use. The house is ideally located for getting to the beach and the castle, and there was a really good vegan cafe just a few steps away, plus an excellent fish and chip shop. It's well situated too for visiting the Lleyn Peninsula, Snowdonia and the Rhinogs. We would love to return. The house has such a lovely welcoming feel!

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments. It is refreshing to communicate with someone who appreciates Morfin, a comfortable well equipped Victorian house with stunning views and a connection to Lloyd George. We are delighted that you felt the welcoming vibe and would like to return. Property Owner

    Excellent location with beautiful views and a stone’s throw from the beach. I loved the little wild flower garden which was magical in the afternoon/evening sun.

    The photos on line make the house look slightly better than it is in real life - very clever photography!!! But all in all a lovely place and a lovely mini break

  • "Your support page for Covid was really helpful."

    It helped keep my anxieties at bay and be confident I would get to the holiday in the end. We loved the house, the top room is a bit hot so the fan in there was very helpful. The back bedroom disappointed our daughter intitially because she said it was like a grandma bedroom. It’s the one room that would benefit an upgrade. Although she grew to love it so not sure it’s urgent. The owners were really helpful and especially kind as I walked off with their keys. The house is in a perfect situation with the ice cream shop at the end of the road and the chippy round the corner. They have been a godsend during outdoor only dining.

    We were particularly appreciative of being welcomed and shown round by the owner. All in all the perfect holiday. We will definitely be returning

  • "This was the 4th time we have stayed in Morfin and we loved it just as much as ever."

    The house is homely and comfortable, well equipped and in a really great location close to the Castle, beach, Cadwalladers ice cream shop and the chip shop - what more could you ask for? Only small problem can be the parking, even with it being low season and parking allowed on both sides of the street, it was sometimes necessary to leave the car away from the house but it wasn’t a major problem.

    Yard was not totally secure for our dog but the cottage itself was comfortable, clean and very well equipped. Lovely cottage for 5 people and a dog, plenty of space for us all. Close to local amenities.

    Fantastic views across the bay from the front bedrooms. Spacious for my family and dog. Great location- 5mins walk to the beach and a couple of lovely cafes. Chippy around the corner and a great ice cream parlour a few doors away. Will definitely be going again.

  • "John the owner welcomed us to the home and was more than happy to give us tips on the local area."

    The home had everything we needed, was a lovely size and so well placed for exploring the local area. We spent a long weekend, parked on the Friday and didn't move the car again until Monday because we just loved the local walks. Felt truly relaxed upon return. Can't wait to go back.

    The washing line was not generous enough for a family's washing, and several things in the house were out of order.

The property

Morfin is a very comfy holiday house, with gorgeous views towards Moel y Gest.

Once the home of former Prime Minister David Lloyd George, who lived at Morfin from the age of 16 for ten years.

As a solicitor he had his first office in what is now the dining room! Enjoy the views of the sea and Moel y Gest from the bay window in the relaxed sitting room, where you will find comfy chairs, plenty of books and a good selection of CDs, and a TV with DVD player. The sitting room opens into the dining room with a glass topped table and chairs, and French windows open into the small but sweet garden. There is a step up to the long galley kitchen with electric oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge with ice box and microwave.

Next door the utility room has a washing machine and dishwasher and a door out to the garden. There are three bedrooms, all with a small TV.

The double room has lovely calm colours and the most wonderful view across the bay to Moel y Gest and the hills beyond.

The twin room has 2'6" beds which are suitable for children. The comfy little chair on the landing is just the place to sit and daydream, or spend an hour or two reading some of the interesting collection books on David Lloyd George, the only Welsh Prime Minister and 1st Earl of Dwyfor! There are two steps down to the bathroom with bath, separate shower, loo and wash hand basin. Go upstairs again to another lovely double bedroom, with even more magnificent views.

Tucked away is a very neat little wet room with loo and wash hand basin. Outside, there is a small pretty terraced garden with table and chairs.

Although the garden is enclosed, it isn't dog proof and young children should also be supervised.

Within a short walk from Morfin you can enjoy Criccieth's interesting individual shops, galleries, good restaurants and cafes.

One of the best fish and chip shops in North Wales is just up the road, as is the famous Cadwalader's Ice Cream shop. Morfin is peaceful, calm and relaxing, with soft colours and interesting bits and bobs.

I love the lamp in the dining room and the David Lloyd George corner on the landing where you can sit and admire the view or quietly read a book. A comfy house in a delightful Victorian seaside town.
