  • "A beautiful property in an idyllic setting."

    A seaview from at the front and a castle view from the rear bedrooms, the seafront is on your doorstep. Super clean and welcoming on arrival, Ty Ardwyn was a big hit with all our family, ages ranging 18 months to 78. A very nice large kitchen with ample equipment/utensils, a lovely lounge with wood burning stove for cosy nights in. All the stylish bedrooms with comfortable mattresses, everybody slept well, which is very unusual for us on holiday! We wouldn't hesitate to book again and will highly recommend to friends and family. Criccieth is a charming village, enough dog friendly eating establishments, we particularly enjoyed the prince of Wales, very good home cooked food. All in all an excellent week, even the weather behaved considering it was late November!

  • "A lovely house a minute from the beach & a view of the sea from the bay windows at the front of the house."

    Perfect for our family of 3 generations including 2 children & dog with everything you need for a stress free break. Safe beaches for swimming & paddle-boarding. Choice of restaurants & shop & butcher's just up the road. We look forward to returning soon.

  • "We have done a few family cottage holidays now and this has proved to be the best accommodation we have booked, thank you."

    Certainly the rooms are generous proportions and crockery etc. all matches which made me very happy :) and is good quality, with a very generously stocked kitchen. Fridge is a very good size and cooker, hob etc. were great too. Bathrooms/toilets adequate in number for a large party of adults and also good quality. We felt like we were on holiday as soon as we got there. We really enjoyed the ample dining tables both inside and out, with the neighbour being friendly and even joining in with our quiz words over the fence!! My 78 year old mum and her partner were able to access the top suite as the stairs are steeper, but made easier by being carpeted. Criccieth was not difficult to park in even on a busy day so long as you are happy to drive around the block/along the front so all 3 cars we brought were able to park for free all week even though the sun was shining for most of it (during August) so I guess it was 'busy'. Best day out was definitely Portmeirion which comes highly recommended if you like a wander and architecture etc. We also had a body board at Hell's mouth (approx 30 mins drive and stunning/wild, viewed later from Plas in Rhiw) Surprisingly the kebab shop in Criccieth is worth a mention being well stocked with groceries/alcohol at the back and good takeaway food (book early for collection later) Close dog beach next to the castle, but the best one was the other side of Dylans - 5 mins walk along the promenade. Once the tide is lower there is a decent stretch of sand to run the dogs on a bit further round the bay if your pooch is shy of stones as our greyhounds are! The only reason I would not book again is that we like to discover somewhere new each year. Felt really emotional unpacking as we enjoyed it all so much !!!!!!

  • "Loved Criccieth, loved ty Ardwyn, the location was perfect, the house was clean, the kitchen was particularly well equipped."

    The lounge would benefit from cafe style shutters as passers by can see directly in but other than that everything was good. Thank you

  • "Beautiful house!"

    Beautiful location! This house has absolutely everything you could need for 7 people to have a great break away in North Wales. We will definitely stay here again. Right near the beach so great for children and dogs. You have Cafes, Cadwalladers ice cream parlour and Dylans all within walking distance. Perfect!
