  • "We had a great time at Bron Y Foel Bach."

    The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The surroundings are also magnificient. It is also very well locatde to explore the area and do some very nice walks. Regarding restaurants,we recommend Dylan's at Criccieth and Ty Gwyn at Betws-Y-Coed, a 17th century inn. We would love coming back to Bron Y Foel.

  • "Fantastic property with fabulous views."

    Eclectic mix of furniture and art works made for an interior full of comfort and interest, the opposite of a sterile, depersonalised property. Full provision of everything needed from torches to hot water bottles. We would love to return but only reservation would be the track up to the cottage which the description underplays. It is half a mile of rough, steep track with hairpin bends.

  • "We have just come back from a wonderful week away in this beautiful cottage."

    The surroundings and the views are amazing. The track up is very narrow but if you take it steady we had no problems. The cottage itself had everything you need, kitchen well stocked, clean bathroom, cupboards for storage. The owners were next door and available if needed and were very helpful and kind. The place had a huge amount of land and garden space, totally terrier proof with sheep and cows just through the fencing. Our Patterdale who normally is very interested in sheep couldn't care less after 24 hours! Beaches are nearby, I'd recommend Criccieth, quieter and huge stretches dog friendly. Black rock was busy and a lot of cars on the beach. Tesco was 2 miles away, in Porthmadog with all local amenities too. We visited Glasfryn Parc where our 8yr old enjoyed go-karting, kayaking and archery. There are castles close by too. We took the Mountain Prince train ride for an afternoon, private compartment which was dog friendly! Brilliant time. We will definitely come back to this property. I was very sad to leave. We miss the views, the garden, the tranquility, but perhaps most of all the friendly dog Toffee who lived next door who managed to tame our Patterdale and become part of the holiday experience for us too!

  • "We loved the cottage!"

    The peace, fresh air and walks straight from the door were a real highlight. Must say we were initially a little daunted by the track leading up the property - possibly because it was late and we'd had a long drive - but it was absolutely fine for the average car. The cottage itself was charming - beautifully presented, clean and with fast internet (helpful for uploading the countless photographs I took of the amazing scenery!). Highly recommended.

  • "We had the best time in this beautiful home away from home."

    The conversion of this old barn has been done with great attention to detail. The house disappears in its beautiful surroundings, the hills, the mountains and the fields full of sheep and little lambs in the spring. Inside, the space has been tastefully decorated and every room is comfortable, convenient and cosy. Outside we were lucky enough to have amazing weather which gave us a chance to enjoy fully the outdoor table and enjoy the magnificent views as much as we could. We met housecarer Jon who was super friendly and very helpful. This house is also very well situated to discover the surroundings, perfectly positioned between PorthMadog and Criccieth, with lots of eating options, even in Covid times. We discovered the Llyn peninsula and Snowdonia National Park and we definitely will be coming back!

  • "Lovely barn conversion with sheep for neighbours."

    Quiet, cosy, well equipped and comfortable inside, with sea views from the garden and upstairs bedroom. The drive from the road up to the house looks daunting but is manageable if taken steadily, and if the sheep move! Porthmadog, Criccieth and the surrounding area are beautiful.

    The gardens were lovely with great views - although we couldn't make the most of them due to the weather! Great walk to Borth-Y-Gest straight from the door and just a five minute drive into Porthmadog for supplies.

The property

Bron Y Foel Bach is a lovely, welcoming and cosy holiday cottage on the Llyn Peninsula with stunning sea views.

Surrounded by hills, stone walls, grazing sheep and peaceful countryside, it’s an idyllic setting.

This family holiday cottage is situated between the towns of Porthmadog and Criccieth so there is a great choice of restaurants and pubs nearby, as well as walks, attractions and activities. Even though the living space is open plan to include the sitting, dining and kitchen areas, the spaces are divided by 5 steps leading from the kitchen to the sitting room which is really cosy and ideal to relax in after a day of exploring.

Open the doors and let the sun shine in, or light a fire in the winter and sink into the squishy sofas to warm yourself through.

The local Oak beamed ceiling and underfloor heating add to the comfy feeling here.

Behind the sitting space is a simple dining table with chairs for six.

From here steps lead down into the quaint kitchen that’s equipped with a small dishwasher, microwave, fridge and electric cooker.

The airing cupboard is where you will find the washing machine and tumble dryer with hanging space for the double bedroom. On the ground floor is a double bedroom which boasts views of the garden.

There’s also a bathroom with loo, bath, shower, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.

Upstairs is a balustrade balcony with lovely views along the coastline of the Llyn Peninsula to Criccieth Castle.

The bedroom upstairs has three single beds. Outside is a paved area with table and chairs - the scent of roses and fuschias in the summer, as well as the stunning sea views, all add to the idyllic feel.

Lawns and the orchard provide plenty of space for the children to play and adults to stroll. Bron y Foel Bach is a former barn that is now a holiday cottage that’s offered many a happy holiday for families in North Wales.

You can drive up, park the car, and not leave if you want a relaxing break away from it all.

However, jump in the car and you can be on some of the best beaches the Llyn Peninsula has to offer, great villages and towns with eateries and shops, as well as attractions and walks.

A happy family holiday awaits you at this pretty holiday cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location

Harlech 5 miles; Caernarfon 19 miles.

The bustling harbour town of Porthmadog lies on the Glaslyn Estuary and enjoys a stunning setting. The gateway to the Snowdonia National Park, Porthmadog is full of individual shops and restaurants, and home to the Ffestiniog Railway and the Welsh Highland railway where you can travel by steam through spectacular Snowdonia scenery, to Blaenau Ffestiniog or Caerforn . The pretty village of Borth Y Gest, with its cliffs and coves, is a short walk or drive from the town. The well known and unique Italianate village of Portmeirion is just down the coast. Situated on a rugged clifftop on its own private peninsula, Portmeirion, famous as the location of the TV show The Prisoner and the final episode of Cold Feet, is surrounded by miles of sandy beaches and woodlands. The area also boasts castles at Criccieth and Harlech, and superb unspoilt beaches such as Black Rock Sands, where the sands stretch as far as the eye can see. Also within reach is the famous Zip World Slate Caverns and Bounce Below where you can get involved with a variety of activities including the thrilling zip wires and underground caverns to explore; there is something here to suit the whole family. An ideal location for the attractions of Snowdonia and the The Lleyn Peninsula.
