We have just enjoyed a long weekend at this first class property. Our grandchildren had a fabulous time playing in the extensive gardens and the cottage was very spacious, comfortable and extremely well equipped. The ‘welcome pack’ left by Sian was the best one we had ever. Hopefully we will be able to visit again in the future.
I wish I could upload the little video I took of the dogs “exploring” the superb gardens, as it definitely highlights what we humans thought about Dulwyn. It is a superb place for a holiday in a lovely quiet location but the main places to visit on the doorstep. Two things matter to me when going on a cottage holiday….comfy bed and a good shower…this place has both.
We took along a couple of bags of logs as we enjoy a log burner but the place is so warm we had no need to get a fire going! Also, the wifi signal is in the other living room, which is bigger and that was where we spent our evenings.
My wife mentioned it would be perfect had there been a hot tub but not a priority for me personally.
Very few holiday homes we have stayed at have had me saying to my wife that “if I could buy this, I would” but this is one such place.
We are already looking for our next Dioni cottage for 2022!

Had a great week at the beautiful dulwyn cottage. So nice to have a true dog friendly house. Garden was amazing and massive!.. But the keen gardener in my husband was desperate to get his hands on the weeds!! Our dog spent hours sniffing and exploring it. Couldn’t get the oven to work but wasn’t a problem for us really. House was big enough for us all to have our own space.. Beautifully clean and well equipped. Loved the remote area, peaceful and overall just fab!!
Lovely cottage, with lots of space four the four of us and our dog. I’m sure a bigger group would have found it perfectly spacious too. We stayed during a fabulous spell of weather (very hot, most days 28-30C) and the thick stone walls of the house meant it was never too hot to sleep. The huge, beautiful garden is enclosed and our dog had the run of the place. There is always plenty of shade to be found on a hot day. Inside the house has two large lounges (we only used one) and a well equipped kitchen. The three bedrooms were spacious and comfortable and the bathroom is also well furnished. The owner was easily contactable and very friendly in response to our one query. We would definitely be happy to stay at at Dulwyn again!

A fantastic cottage. Loads of space and a beautiful garden to enjoy if the sun is shining. A great position on a quiet lane 5 miles from the sea and with the Llyn peninsula and Snowdonia mountains a short drive away. We would definitely return and recommend for others.

We had a great week at Dulwyn. The cottage was so clean , spacious and well equipped. The fresh flowers and welcome pack were much appreciated. The garden was also lovely and so quiet. Its so near to lovely beaches, small interesting towns, mountains, a steam train and cycle routes. Black Rock Sands is great as you can drive onto the beach ( if like us you have lots of things to take). Criccieth is really beautiful. Sian quickly sorted out a minor problem we had and Louise at Dioni is so helpful too.

We had a lovely holiday break at Dulwyn in November 2019. The cottage is well equipped, really warm and cosy. What a lovely gesture on arrival we were welcomed with a lots of essentials, milk, bread, wine, cheese etc. Such a lovely touch.
We loved the area, so close to various coastal towns and beautiful beaches. We love our walks and to return back to this cosy cottage, it was amazing.
I would definitely return and highly recommend this propertY.
Thanks again Sian and Dioni.

Really clean and well presented cottage. Gardens were very pretty and a pleasure to sit out in. Cottage was in a quiet lane with fairly easy access to Cricieth and Pwllheli and all of the shops. Spent the days walking and a walk from the cottage to St Cybi’s Well at Llanystumdwy is only about 15 minutes away. (Acccesable from the church grounds and walk through the back and up the hill to see the sea and the wonderful surrounding areas). Would recommend this cottage wholeheartedly.

Dulwyn is a fabulous cottage in such an idyllic location. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated and having two lounges is a great idea. The welcome hamper is amazing and greatly appreciated after our journey.
The location is between Criccieth and Pwhelli, not more than 15 minutes to either place. Beach is really nice and dog friendly at Pwhelli. Lovely dog friendly ice cream place in Criccieth and fabulous Thai restaurant that does takeaway food.
The only negative I would have to say about the cottage is the garden. It’s huge, wraps around the cottage and is very pretty but it’s not fully enclosed for a small dog who likes to wander off and explore. Even the front gate onto the lane has a gap that a small dog could get under and the metal fencing between the garden and next doors garden has wide gaps too.
I was disappointed as I had asked questions beforehand and luckily had taken our garden extension lead but felt unhappy that I couldn’t just open the door and let my dog out on his own and had to keep him harnessed all week.

We had such a wonderful time at Dulwyn cottage, we didn’t want to leave! We have been coming to the area for around 14 years and stayed in many different cottages and this was definitely one of our favourites!
It was lovely to receive a welcome pack on arrival! 🙂
It was great to see our older two children (13 and 12) off their devices and playing in the garden and our 21 month old little girl loving it too!
There is plenty of space for a family of five like ours (plus dog. Our dog is adopted and reactive so the peace and quiet was a wonderful holiday for her). Having two living rooms was great at times if we wanted to watch different things/play games etc but we also enjoyed a movie night in the larger living room where we were all comfortable and had plenty of space.
The bedrooms were lovely and the beds were very comfortable.
The area is gorgeous and a great spot for going off and visiting our favourite places. We went to Portmeirion, Beddgelert (beautiful, and my children have always loved the story of Gelert),Ty Coch Inn, (we stayed in the flat above the Pub there and have been going back ever since), I even had a very quick swim in the sea! We had pub meals in the Saracen’s Head Beddgelert, The Australia in Porthmadog, Pen Y Gwryd Hotel and Ty Coch Inn, all great food!
If we had more time I would have liked to get to Harlech and Abersoch.
Can’t wait for our next holiday in Wales!
