  • "Wow this house was such an amazing find!"

    It was just what our family needed to spend quality time together. The house has all the facilities your need and the kitchen was so well equipped for big groups. We loved the fact each room had its own en-suite as made sure as a big group we could all get ready quickly. The swimming pool was our favourite thing and we had to drag the kids out with them even getting up early for morning swims! Finally the views are amazing with the sea in the distance it really did feel like you had your own private view.

  • "Fantastic property, very clean, lovely welcome pack, the only small thing I can think off is the check out time of 9am, it seems a big rush to the end of a lovely stay, if it could be considered to have check out time moved an hour or so later, that would make a lovely end to the holiday."

  • "Moel Yr Wyn is a fabulous property with brilliant walks around it."

    We enjoyed the pool and the communal sitting room and dining table area suited our party of 10 very well. The kitchen was well equipped and we had everything we needed. It was very clean and comfortable, and we were sad to leave. Well recommended for a larger party and especially for people who enjoy countryside walks and exploring beautiful beaches.

  • "What can I say apart from a stunning house."

    The views from the property were spectacular. The pool was a huge hit with the kids who were in and out over our break. This is the perfect house for relaxing and doing some lovely walks. The owners communication was fantastic and the house is so well equipped that it really has everything that you need. Would not hesitate in returning to this wonderful place.

  • "We had a lovely week at Moel Yr Wyn."

    The house is lovely, with amazing views. We were there with family including our elderly parents. The layout downstairs provided enough space for us all to enjoy our various activities, whilst still being together. The one issue we had was with the small step between the dining and living room which was difficult to see. We soon overcame this with chairs marking the step so they could identify and navigate this. The downstairs bedrooms with en-suite provided the accommodation we needed for our party, What a lovely clean, comfortable, luxurious and scenic property. We certainly enjoyed the use of the pool. Thank you

  • "A beautiful property that fit our party of 11 (being of all different ages) very well having ground floor bedrooms."

    All beds were super comfortable and having a bathroom to each bedroom was great having so many people under one roof. We really appreciated the plentiful stocks of laundry and dishwashing tablets, kitchen roll, foil etc and the welcome pack was a lovely treat. The lush green surroundings and coastal spot provides really lovely views from the lounge area and of course the swimming pool is a great addition thoroughly enjoyed by all. A very well thought out house that we couldn’t fault one bit. We had a fabulous stay - thank you!

    Well equipped, very clean, super comfy, amazing views and so thoughtfully laid out for a family get together. The pool was a great hit with both the children and adults. We cant wait to come back! Nearby Aberdaron is so quaint and unspoilt.

  • "The house and its location were perfect."

    The house was incredibly comfortable and very clean. The facilities were amazing. It was just a shame we couldn't get into the house until 5pm and had to leave by 9am.

  • "Beautiful house in exceptional setting."

    We enjoyed a family 90th birthday holiday, and it was everything our mum wanted. The house was accessible for mum and it was very well equipped. We did feel that the check in and check out times were restricting, especially with so many people staying, and once life returns to ‘normal’ we would suggest 4pm and 10am would be better.

  • "Absolutely fantastic property in a perfect location for anyone seeking a relaxing holiday."

    Good size for 6 adults and 4 kids under 6. Close enough to Snowden for 5 of the party to have a day out walking to the summit. Aberdaron is a beautiful little spot with a lovely beach. The indoor pool was great for the kids. Recommend this property to anyone looking to spend some quality family time after the last 15 months.

  • "The place is amazing and the views are fantastic."

    The kitchen needs more pots and pans - there is one frying pan and you can have 12 people. The owners turned up at 7:30am to clean the pool and mow the lawn, as we were not due to leave until 9am we found this strange and also with having a 3 year old we may well have been in the pool at 7:30am!!
