  • "Good location."

    Comfortable and generally well appointed property. It had been well cleaned. Overall the description of the property and the photographs gave an accurate representation. I would have no problem in recommending others to consider it for a peaceful holiday in lovely countryside. One or two minor issues some of which could just be "end of season" problems. Latch on side gate broken, handle of freezer broken, only two wine glasses, no cafetière / filter coffee maker, front door desperately in need of sanding and painting, leaking gutter. Despite copious notes on how to recycle and what went in which coloured bin there were no bins which rendered the information pointless and didn't help the property's green credentials. The price hike for the October half term week compared with the week before and the week after was, in my opinion, excessive and opportunistic but, that being said, I paid it so I guess it is evidence of supply and demand working. Overall, a good base for a very enjoyable autumn break.

  • "There is a lot to like about this cottage - great location, handy for the local walking route, near the beaches, great local pub in walking distance, lovely gardens, modern kitchen."

    But there is a fairly significant damp problem in one of the bedrooms which did affect us on our stay. Thankfully we didn’t need all 3 bedrooms so we avoided this room. This was reported to Sykes so maybe they are repairing it. As well as the damp issue there was also room for improvement in the way this cottage was looked after by the owners and maintenance company. Definitely not spotlessly clean. For example there is mould in a few places in the bathroom and the towel rail was dusty. The freezer door handle was broken and appears to have been for quite a while. The instructions for the bins are very out of date has been mentioned in other reviews. This property also has the smallest kitchen bin you’ve ever seen. It’s a shame because just a little more effort from the owners and these small problems could be easily resolved and it would make a big difference.

    Clean and had everything you need to enjoy your stay. I would highly recommend. A great pub not to far away as well.

  • "Many aspects of the bungalow were very satisfactory - spacious, quiet and as good a location as any for getting to various parts of this lovely part of the country."

    Good firm beds, excellent bathroom, very efficient heating. But there were a few niggles - very uncomfortable soggy sofas, and the kitchen was lacking in a number of areas - very poor kitchen knives, no table spoons, no lemon squeezer, no cafetiere, no instructions about kitchen appliances. The handwritten instructions about rubbish disposal urgently need revision, but no doubt this is in hand.

  • "Such a lovely place."

    It felt truly relaxing to be there, even with three kids under 7! The pub up the road has a slide and swings for entertainment. We will be back!

  • "We had a really fabulous time at ‘Shippon’."

    The bungalow was absolutely spotless and had lots of home comforts. The kitchen in particular was fabulously equipped and the garden and nest boxes were a constant delight to our family. If we were to offer some constructive feedback it would be that the front door could do with some attention. The locks are incredibly stiff to turn and anyone with arthritis would really struggle. It would also be a good idea to swap the duvet in the main bedroom for a lighter one as we were lucky enough to experience fabulous weather and we were far too hot under the very snuggly duvets that were on. We always love to check out the recommendations etc in a visitor book but there wasn’t one in this property so that’s maybe a suggestion for the future , and in the welcome manual it stated that someone would come and put the recycling/ rubbish out to be collected and they we were to leave it but it wasn’t collected at all during the week we visited. Maybe this was just a one off or maybe if the procedure has changed, the book needs updating. Altogether a fabulous home in a fabulous location and we cannot wait to visit again.

  • "The accommodation itself was very modern,comfortable, clean and very well equipped."

    We did experience some difficulty with the heating and had no heating for four days. Eventually a heating engineer was called and the matter was resolved. The recycling bins also vanished and we were unable to recycle our waste. Nobody was able to account for the missing bins. We contacted the owner regarding the heating and the recycling bins and he was great and extremely pleasant and helpful. Apart from the above the holiday was fantastic. The Lleyn peninsular was beautiful and on the whole the weather was kind to us. We would certainly recommend the accommodation and the area.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Shippon."

    The house is well equipped and really comfortable. It was immaculately clean on our arrival too. We loved the quiet location on the edge of the village but with a pathway leading up to the local pub and post office. The beaches on the north coast are just wonderful and one is just a 20 minute walk away over the fields. Thanks - we'll be back before too long!

  • "Just driving home from a lovely week at Shippon."

    The house is beautiful & well equipped, gardens are lovely. On arrival the house was immaculately clean & essentials were left for us i.e milk, tea & coffee. We have stayed in many houses on the Llyn Penninsula & this is one that we would return to. Porth Towyn is absolutely stunning & two of our best days were spent there. Really sad to be going home today.

  • "We wished the beaches had more public conveniences one was owned by national trust and had been built perposely but we could'nt use them because they had'nt been given permission by local authorities to open them."

    When publishing a cottage by a beach we think you must explain the fact that you had to walk through two farm fields therefore reaching the pathway dropping down to the beach,driving is a must to be able to reach any of the beaches where we stayed.

About the location

TUDWEILIOG

Nefyn 5 miles; Abersoch 9 miles; Pwllheli 10 miles.

The picturesque village of Tudweiliog lies on the Nefyn to Aberdaron road along the stunning north coast of the Llyn Peninsula and feels much further away than it is from the hustle and bustle of Pwllheli and Abersoch, and the other resorts along the south coast. The local pub is the Lion Inn and there is a Post Office in the village which also doubles as the village shop. The local beach is the cove of Porth Towyn, with its clean sand and waters, it is a popular choice with families. A little further along the coast is the wide bay of Traeth Penllech with the tiny fishing hamlet of Porth Colmon at its western end. The Llyn Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is renowned for its scenery and varied walking, with coastal paths being a major attraction for the avid walker. Most of the coastline is owned by the National Trust, where you will find many remote bays, sandy beaches, cliffs and wildlife havens, plus the region is dotted with castles, whilst fishing, sailing and watersport activities are available. Also within easy reach are Portmeirion, the Isle of Anglesey and the Snowdonia National Park, with its dramatic scenery and superb walks. With its proximity to such a wide range of destinations, Tudweiliog makes a wonderful base for a break in this part of Wales.
