  • "We have stayed in many different holiday cottages over the years and this was one of the best."

    A lovely welcome pack from the owners, spotlessly clean, spacious and really well-equipped. A really comfortable home in a great position, being close to both Pwllheli and Criccieth. Both towns have some lovely shops and restaurants. Will definitely visit again.

  • "Absolutely love this place."

    The owners are soo lovely and helpful. This is our 2nd stay here this year. We love it! The only reason I dropped a point on comfort is the mattress in the master bedroom wasn’t comfortable this time. Apart from that…Perfect, furnished beautifully, great location, fantastic games room downstairs, well equipped as I said we love it here! We will still be back.

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Berth and it's a great base for exploring North Wales."

    The property was very spacious, clean and had everything that you could possibly need. The welcome pack and card was a lovely touch and we particularly enjoyed the Bara Brith! Couple of small things for the owners to consider - the double bed is a little creaky and hooks on the backs of the doors in the bathroom and en-suite would have been useful. Many thanks Linda & John, we will definitely recommend your property.

    As a young family it was perfect for us, the children enjoyed playing in the games room and we all loved the hot tub. The cottage has everything you might need, including children’s cutlery, high chair, stair gates etc. the garden is enclosed and super safe. We found the location perfect for exploring the area. Can’t wait to return.

  • "The accomodation was excellent."

    All the the facilities needed were there, the place was spotlessly clean, it was a very quiet peaceful location. Berth is airy and modern and beautifully decorated. The bathroom and ensuite are brilliantly appointed, the games room is a god send for both rainy days or for kids waiting while food is being prepared. The wifi signal is strong and easily supported 5 devices all at once. The jacuzzi spotlessly clean and very relaxing for evening dips which we used every day. The owners very kindly emptied our bins (Welsh recycling bins take some getting used to.) Excellent base to explore Llyn. Thank you for a great week.

    Spacious, comfortable with modern high quality fittings everywhere. The cool basement was welcome in the very hot weather and the pool table is an excellent one (balls do get stuck in the pockets but just put your hand in rather than tilt the heavy table). Criccieth is a very pleasant visit nearby although Pwllheli would probably suit young people better. Perfectly placed for touring the peninsula or visiting Portmadog, Portmeiron or Harlech Castle. Very friendly and helpful owners close by. Perfect.

  • "We were really impressed with this property."

    Thank you for the welcome pack and card. They were very much appreciated. The property was spotless and had everything you needed. The showers were very powerful and there was always hot water. We loved the space inside and out. We used the pool table far more than we expected and were pleased the facility was there. We didn’t use the hot tub but only because it was quite windy. We thoroughly recommend this property for its facilities and location. We loved Criccieth and Llanbedrog beach. Afon Wen beach is a short walk away and would be quieter than Criccieth. We visited NT Plas yn Riew which is absolutely beautiful and definitely worth a visit.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Berth, the property is pretty perfect."

    We used the hot tub every day as the weather was lovely and managed to eat al fresco in the garden. Thank you for the welcome pack and card that was a very nice personal touch. The beds were comfortable and the showers were very powerful :) We used the games room more than I thought we would, only criticism is we couldn't get the xbox to work, some instructions might have helped but the tv just wouldn't pick it up for some reason. Kitchen was well equipped and spotlessly clean as was the rest of the house. There was one chair that was a little bit wobbly so that might need looking at but there were only 4 of us so it wasn't an issue! We toured all around the area, our favourite places were Abersoch, Aberdaron, Whistling Sands and last but certainly not least, in fact our absolute favourite was Morfa Nefyn that blew us away!! We also visited the I'm a Celebrity castle (Gwrych castle at Abergele) on the way home which we can also recommend! Thanks for a truly memorable holiday in a beautiful part of the country, we hope to be back sometime!

  • "The photos of Berth don't do it the justice it deserves, it's a beautiful holiday home with everything you could need."

    It's very spacious and easily accommodated the 6 of us. The games room went down a storm with our grown up sons and the beautiful garden was perfect to sit out in while the sun was shining. The beds were all very comfortable and there's plenty of hanging space in each room, the showers are powerful and both had a cady inside for your toiletries. There are little stools and mirrors located next to plug sockets in each room for getting ready and the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you'd need to cook a home meal. There's ample parking for 3 cars outside and the door into the games room makes easy access to the house from the carpark. The location is perfect, you have pwllheli to one side of you and Porthmadog to the other. A tiny downside was the noise of lorries going past early of a morning, it can only be heard from the double bedroom and if the bedroom window is closed you can't hear anything, we just opened the ensuit window and it made all the difference, you could take a little fan with you during the summer. It wouldn't put us off staying there again in a heartbeat. Linda and John were on hand if we needed anything at all and we were welcomed by a lovely welcome package and milk and butter in the fridge. We had a fantastic week and will definitely book to go back and stay.
