  • "We had a lovely week and the property was perfect for us (6 adults and 2 juniors)."

    We were able to park 3 cars without too much difficulty and the 4 year old in the party loved the trains going by. The back area could do with a makeover and we had to avoid it when it rained. Lovely views of the sea and the castle - especially from the top floor. Would definitely return.

  • "The property wasn’t as clean as We would expect as the kitchen could do with all the cabinets have a good clean inside draws ( there was hair) and doors had runs down them."

    Patio door glass was dirty and skirting’s in second floor family bathroom had not been cleaned . The patio yard at the back was really poor with gravel all over the artificial grass so not very pleasant to sit out there and I think it could be much nicer with little effort . Bed in the first floor bedroom is way to big for where it’s situated and I had to turn sideways to get around the end of the bed ( I am only small) so not because of me. We would not return to this property as we stayed around the corner in a similar house last year that was immaculate and far nicer and this is why we made such a Comparison . Upside , property was handy for getting around and was very quiet no one should be put off by trains as only a few a day and gone in a blink of an eye.

  • "The house was lovely."

    .spotless and had everything we needed. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the street was lovely and quiet. We sat out most nights under the stars. The beach was beautiful (and warm) and just a few minutes walk away with lovely walks around. It was great to have a little train line and be able to take leisurely rides up and down the coast. We had wonderful days out to Port Merrion and Snowdonia. Criccieth is a little jewel and would definitely return..there is an amazing fish and chip shop but you will have to queue!

    Looking out from our bedroom window to a view of the coastline and the castle made leaving extremely difficult. The house itself is stunning, cooking in a well equipped, amazing kitchen was a pleasure and not a chore for a change! Will definitely visit again

    We loved the extra touches of a bottle of wine, chocolates and cake that greeted us when we arrived. Fabulous comfortable beds, commented on by all! The fabulous beaches were a stones throw from the cottage and we loved exploring. Altogether a fabulous holiday destination.

    Really spacious and clean with everything you could need. The kids loved having the train go by. The view of the castle, sea and train was perfect. Had been concerned about parking, but we managed to park both cars outside with no problem. Criccieth is such a lovely place and perfect for exploring everything Snowdonia has to offer.

    Spacious,clean and everything was just spot on. Met the owners John and Janine, who were really keen to make sure that we had everything that we needed.It was clear that they were really interested in making sure we had a great experience at the house. Criccieth is a beautiful place and such a great base to explore this part of Wales.

  • "A very comfortable house in a beautiful location."

    We had everything we needed to enjoy our holiday with a well equipped kitchen to prepare some of our own meals in. We were fortunate to have lovely weather so we made the most of the opportunity to sit outside to eat at the front of the house: overlooking the sea and mountains made this a fabulous place for relaxation. This is a perfect base from which to explore North Wales. Criccieth is a quiet coastal town which remains unspoilt. The owners were very kind, with a welcome pack of a few provisions including Prosecco and gave us great recommendations for eating out and visiting the local area. Thank you John and Janine and Menai holidays, we will be back! One week was not enough time to explore this stunning part of the UK.

  • "Lovely large house, very well furnished and comfortable."

    Perfect base to explore the Llyn Peninsular and North Wales. Criccieth is a lovely town. Recommend Dylans & Meis Fusion for meals and of course Cadwalladers for ice cream. Only downside in Criccieth is that parking could be an issue during the summer.

  • "The cottage was really great."

    Clean, stylish and had everything we needed and more. The beds were very comfy and the bedding was really soft and luxurious, really felt like a treat. Only 5 minutes walk from the beach and great views of the sea and the castle. Nice private outside space at the back which is bigger than it looks from the photos. Couldn't recommend highly enough.

We were a family of 5, 4 adults and a baby (6 if you include the dog!). With 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and an en suite there was plenty of room for all of us.
