Spacious Three Bedroom Holiday Cottage Near Criccieth | Dulwyn

Dog FriendlyNear PubReal Fire

Ideally located in a quiet rural location this spacious three bedroom holiday cottage near Criccieth is the perfect location for exploring the mountains of Snowdonia to the east as well as the beaches of the Llyn peninsula to the west. Two separate lounge areas, a modern kitchen diner and three spacious bedrooms ensure there’s plenty of room for everybody to spread out in this traditional stone built property.

A quiet country lane will lead guests to the private off road parking to the rear of the house. From here we enter the house via the back door through a useful boot room and utility area with washing machine and extra sink. A modern fitted kitchen boasts a lovely beach wood worktop with inset Belfast sink. An eyeline oven and induction hob will ensure any chefs in your group will feel very happy. A similar modern dining table in the kitchen will sit six quite comfortable but a more formal dining table is also provided in the adjoining room.

Two separate lounges could really help a family holiday go that much smoother I think. The first and largest lounge has plenty of room for everybody to sit and socialise together and enjoy the large flat screen TV perhaps. But the second cosier lounge with log fire is a nice retreat for anyone wanting to read a book and enjoy a glass of wine perhaps.

Between these two rooms a central hallway houses a small ground floor wc as well as an impressive stairway leading us to the first floor bedrooms. The first master bedroom is very spacious with a king sized double bed, lots of fitted wardrobes and a small en-suite wc. The second double bedroom is smaller but has a lovely view over the private garden. The third bedroom accommodates two single beds and again, plenty of storage and pleasing décor.

The family bathroom at the top of the stairs houses a large bath as well as a separate shower cubicle with lots of hot water provided by the large oil fuelled combi-boiler.

Located in a very quite rural position half way between the popular seaside town of Criccieth and the harbour town of Pwllheli, the cottage boasts a large mature and private garden to the front of the house with plenty of parking to the rear.

As suggested a 15 minute drive to the west will bring to the mountains of Snowdonia. Cwm Pennant and a climb up the Nantlle Ridge is one of the hidden gems of the National Park and is easily reached from the cottage. Walkers might also enjoy the newly established Welsh Coastal Path. The sections near this cottage must be among the most picturesque of this 870 mile long uninterrupted route along the welsh coastline.

The seaside town of Criccieth nearby is also the home of the famous Cadwaladers ice cream. The perfect compliment to a walk along the beach or a tour of the historic Criccieth castle.

The harbour town of Pwllheli is a little further along to the west. Lots of small shops, pubs and restaurants here. A little further again brings you to the very fashionable village of Abersoch which is very popular with during the summer months. Although guests staying in Dulwyn should also consider exploring the quieter hidden sea coves along the northern edge of the peninsula.

Lots of activities in the area. Traditional pastimes such as golf, horse-riding and steam train trips. Family days out at the nearby Dwyfor Ranch Pet Farm or Glasfryn Park adventure centre. And also more breath taking attractions such as zip line rides and mountain biking.

We loved our stay and thought the property was excellent. Only two very small suggestions-every battery in the TV and cable controllers were dead and the key wasn’t on the key box on arrival. No big deal but delayed our entry by 20-30 mins after a 6 hour drive. Other than that lovely stay thanks

We had a wonderful time at Dulwyn, Sian the host left us the most amazing welcome pack and was very quick to respond when we had any queries. The house was so comfortable a real home from home and well equipped. The garden was idyllic and very safe for our dogs. A good base for exploring the area, would highly recommend.

Positive Aspects:
The welcome pack was truly amazing, providing a warm and inviting start to our stay.The bed in the main bedroom was exceptionally comfortable, ensuring a good night’s sleep.The bathroom was clean and tidy, and the selection of towels provided was more than adequate.
Areas of Concern:
One notable downside was the dim lighting in the lounges, which made it less than ideal for reading or spending extended evenings indoors.The lack of instructions for using the boiler for heating or hot water was inconvenient and left us feeling a bit uncertain about managing these essentials.A noticeable smell of oil and fumes from the boiler was a concern for our overall comfort.The issue extended to the kitchen, with non-functional lights under one of the cupboards, and again, inadequate lighting overall.During our stay, we were disturbed in the early hours by what seemed to be animal activity in the loft space, possibly squirrels or rats. This was an unsettling experience.The property, in general, appeared to be less well-maintained than we have come to expect from Dioni properties. It lacked the usual high standards we’ve enjoyed in the past. In addition to the previous points, it’s important to note that the garden was not as secure for our dog as advertised. This was a disappointment and did not meet our expectations. Furthermore, the garden appeared to be in need of some care and attention, which affected the overall enjoyment of our stay.
We hope that these issues can be addressed to enhance the experience for future guests.


Wonderful large cottage, spotlessly clean, very comfortable sofas and beds and an extremely well equipped kitchen. Fabulous gardens which our over excited sprocker thoroughly enjoyed exploring, lots of garden furniture placed around to enable us to enjoy the sun all day. Our teenagers loved having large bedrooms and a lounge (with plenty of board games) to themselves as well as the garden to lounge around in. Sian was wonderful, left us a fabulous hamper which was very much appreciated and she resolved a problem with a small wasp nest immediately. Dulwyn was both secluded but within minutes of the local towns and beaches. Will definitely return.

Lovely cottage, much bigger than we expected, with great gardens that were perfect for our dog. The location was super quiet but close to Criccieth and other towns. The cottage was spotlessly clean. We used the butchers in the nearby village which was great and there was a weekly takeaway van which we would recommend. Will definitely return.

Wonderful property, well equipped kitchen, very comfortable living area and beds. But those little roads need some getting used to lol

Dulwyn is in an ideal location for visiting Criccieth, Porthmadog and Pwllheli. The gardens are extensive and our dogs loved having the space to roam free.

Inside there is plenty of space and the sofas are very comfortable.

Unfortunately the oil boiler stopped working after 2 nights at the property, which we reported to the owner Sian. We were left with no hot water and no heating for the remainder of our stay as the plumber failed to get the boiler working. We also had an unscheduled visit from the gardener who stayed for 90 mins, resulting in us having to come in from the garden on a nice afternoon with our dogs!

Overall we were very disappointed with Dulwyn and found it not up to Dioni’s usual standards.


A beautiful cottage and grounds, perfect for a young family and dog. It’s set in a very quiet and private location. The cottage was very clean and comfortable (the beds in particular) with a lovely welcome pack on arrival. Dioni and the owner (Sian) were very helpful and warm. We would stay there again.


We had a wonderful stay at Dulwyn. The setting was perfect for us, so peaceful yet centrally based so getting from place to place took no time. The garden exceeded all expectations…it is a great addition to such brilliant accommodation and the welcome pack was the cherry on top. We had some great meals at the goats Inn and dylans in criccieth. I thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone looking at staying in the area. Thanks again for such a marvellous break.

We stayed at Dulwyn last week .it was a delightful experience, Sian had left us an extravagant choice of goodies!
The kitchen is brilliantly stocked, we especially loved the air fryer ! Plenty of towels, and massives of loo rolls.
The dogs had the best time in the magical garden,and we are hoping the derelict cottage is also hers ,so next
Time we can take both.
Thank you very much very thoughtful hostess.
