  • “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 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. - Sykes owner relations

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.

About the location

CRICCIETH

Porthmadog 5 miles; Portmeirion 8 miles; Abersoch 15 miles;

Often described as the 'Pearl of Wales on the shores of Snowdonia’, this delightful seaside town is situated just 5 miles from Porthmadog. The town’s 13th century castle perches majestically on a rocky outcrop, dominating the skyline and offering superb views of Tremadog Bay and the Snowdonia mountains. Watersports enthusiasts will be delighted by the two beaches, whilst walkers and bikers are spoilt for choice by the proximity of the beautiful Snowdonia National Park. Stroll along the beaches, watch porpoises playing in the surf, or relax in the various pubs, restaurants and tea rooms, sampling the famous Cadwalader’s ice cream. Further afield, attractions such as Portmeirion’s wonderful Italianate gardens, the Ffestiniog railway in Porthmadog, Harlech Castle, Caernarfon Castle and the beautiful beaches and renowned golf courses of the Llyn Peninsula are all within an easy drive.
