Modern Four Bedroom Holiday Cottage Near The Beach | Gwyddonfa

Dog FriendlyNear BeachHot TubNear Pub

Gwyddonfa is a beautiful modern four bedroom seaside holiday cottage near the beach sleeping 8. The perfect seaside retreat at anytime of the year. Classic, nautical, and neutral colours, the feel inside is fresh, understated and very relaxing.

You feel a sense of calm as soon as you walk through the door of this property which is exactly what you want when you come for a week of rest and relaxation on the beautiful North Wales coast. Situated on the North side of the Llyn Peninsula, you are perfectly placed to enjoy the beautiful hot spots of the Llyn as well as taking in some of the high adrenalin adventures the Snowdonia National Park has to offer.

The entrance into the property is through a long hallway, to the right is the sitting room; a large open space with plenty of seating for the group, TV and big windows letting in plenty of light. There is a dining table and chairs also set up at one end of the room. The furniture is cream, taupe and wooden which when it all comes together offers a very serene feel to the room.

Further on towards the back of the house is the kitchen. Complete with everything you need to cater for your group. There is also a smaller table that seats 4 which is perfect for breakfast rounds when everyone is on holiday time! Moving further back in the house is the utility room, boot room and the ground floor WC - the setup is perfect if you are looking to go and explore the great outdoors as you have everything you need to sort out all the wellies and wet weather gear on your return. Outside guests have a private patio area with outdoor seating, BBQ and that all important hot tub.

Up to the first floor where you’ll find 3 of the 4 bedrooms. A double with ensuite, a double and twin with set of bunk beds. All styled with neutral colours along with splashes of nautical artwork and ornaments makes the rooms feel really fresh and inviting - there will be lots of good night sleeps here for sure. The ensuite has a bath, shower, WC and washbasin. There is also a family bathroom that caters for the other 3 bedrooms that has the same set up as the en-suite.

Upstairs to the second floor is the attic bedroom - a fantastic, double room with a high apex ceiling making it really roomy. A sofa area is a welcome addition as a great place to escape if you want some alone time to read a book or take a nap - the sea air will do that to you!

Set 100 yards up from Dinas Dinlle, one of the most beautiful beaches that the North Wales Coast has to offer is a real selling point of this property and something you can enjoy all year around. There are miles of long sandy beach with facilities available, including toilets, cafes and a few shops. During the summer months, it is a great place to spend the sunny days and likewise during the winter, fabulous for walks taking in the fresh air followed by tea and cake in a nearby cafe.

If you head West, you'll move further into the Llyn Peninsula where you have lots of offer. The beautiful sandy coves found at Nefyn and Whistling sands, which are about a 15 min drive further along the north side of the peninsula are certainly worth a visit. The towns of Pwllheli and Criccieth should also be on your ‘places to go’ list as they both offer some great places to eat and drink along with shops to mooch in. The marina at Pwllheli is great for sailing and Criccieth is home to the castle.

In terms of activities you are spoilt for choice. Glasfryn Parc is where to go for karting, wakeboarding, archery, clay pigeon shooting. Bear Grylls Survival Academy is just down the road as is paint balling and off-road segway.

Head East from the cottage and you'll find yourself in Bangor and Caernarfon, both much larger towns and home to some other great activities. Bangor is the gateway to Anglesey and so lots of fun things to do on the Menai Straits including the famous rib rides. Caernarfon has the castle of course and is a market town with lots of places to eat and drink.

A drive of 20mins further into the mountains will bring you to the foot of Snowdon, the famous Zipworld and the beautiful towns and villages of Snowdonia to explore aswell of course as all the walking, climbing and watersports options that are available in the mountains and lakes.

Had a lovely weekend stay. The accommodation was home from home. The robes and towels provided for the hot tub use was great. The use of the leisure park was a bonus as it was next door, very quiet. Lovely walk to the beach and surroundings. 10 minutes out of Caernarfon town were Tesco and Morrison for food shopping and fuel. All 7 of us would definitely recommend.

Janice Vest

Brilliant stay at this house for the second stay stayed for 1 week in July. I’ll definitely book it again love it has a beautiful hot tub as well

Jan Lethbridge

This time last week we were, sadly, returning home from an absolutely brilliant week in Gwyddonfa. Eight of us, so the house was full, ages from 3 to 76. We didn’t see a cloud all week, amazing beach a hundred yards from the door, house exactly as described and seen on the website, with the bonus of the hot tub. Handy shops for newspapers, ice creams, fish & chips, odds and ends and beach paraphernalia, as well as a cafe. The local airport with its museum and cafe was a surprising treat, again within walking distance. Helicopters and light planes coming and going very frequently, and the museum staffed by a real enthusiast whose passion was inspiring.
There were a couple of very minor things, shower drain in family bathroom clogged up on day one, and the door of the en suite impossible to close. (We may have celebrated our Golden Wedding last year, but I still don’t want to hear every bathroom noise, and neither does he!) On the subject of loos, the downstairs one had no lock, though it looked as though a little bolt used to be there. We found only one hand towel and wondered if there should have been more, but other towels were plentiful. I also wondered about a first- aid kit? This only came up because my son was stung by a lesser weever fish during an early morning fishing expedition. He googled it of course, and the main treatment is immersion of the site in very hot water, so there was nothing we needed, but it was just a thought. We’ve usually found them in caravans, first-aid kits that is, not weever fish! And being a full house, we were using the dishwasher twice every day. Might it be worthwhile to provide more crockery and cutlery?
But these little points in no way detracted from the wonderful time that we had while staying in Gwyddonfa. We would recommend the house to anyone for a holiday, especially an all-age family get-together, as it’s so spacious and well appointed, and we may well return.
Thank you to everyone concerned in making our visit so enjoyable.

We had a wonderful holiday in Dinas Dinlle. All the facilities at Gwyddonfa were excellent, especially the hot tub. We were out every day enjoying the beautiful countryside so weren’t concerned with the outside space, the decked and paved back yard was adequate for our needs.
We had a much needed break in 5* accommodation, diolch yn fawr.

Just back from a week’s stay with extended family. Very high standard accommodation for a reasonable price. So clean and comfortable. It really was like a home from home. Plenty of everything, all spotlessly clean. If I went again I’d take some big mugs as those tiny ones are a bit frustrating! No complaints though and we were so impressed with everything.

We are just back from a week at Gwyddonfa and can not recommend it enough. The house was spotlessly clean and well laid out. We were a group of four adults and three children, the layout allowed everyone to have their own space. The beach is within walking distance and is beautiful. We arranged quite a few excursions for our week and found the house central to where ever we wanted to go (1/2hr to most places…Snowdon Mountain Railway, Greenwood Farm Park, Ribride speed boats). Our first visit to Wales but hopefully not our last! Honestly can’t recommend Gwyddonfa enough.

Lynn Davies

Very enjoyable short break,House was very good spotlessly clean and had everything you could need,staff at the caravan park were very helpful,location is very good and use of the park club was good.

Gill Millican

We had a woderful family holiday last week in Gwyddonfa. The accommodation was superb. My husband remembers the house when it was the home of his grandparents. How different it looks now! The house was well equipped and the hot tub was a luxury. Just a few suggestions: hooks on the bathroom door would be good; the top room ideally should have an en suite facility; a small grassed area in the back with a clothes line would be helpful but these are only small points. We had a wonderful holiday. Thank you.

We had a fabulous time as a family in this gorgeous cottage which was our first family holiday for 2 years. The location is perfect for the beach which our 2 grand-daughters aged 3 and 6.5 had a ball walking to and picking shells and stones on. We all loved the hot tub which is maintained very discreetly every morning. The cottage is very spacious and was very well equipped with everything you needed for self catering for a large family/group as there was 8 of us for part of the holiday. Louise was great in sorting out the booking in 2021 to communicating just the week before with some minor changes. The staff at Dinlle holiday park next door were really helpful especially Ann who gave some great advice as we are looking at caravans there. Being able to access the park clubhouse was great they do lots of activities for both adults and children and the staff were very friendly. We had some wonderful meals in the Black Boy Inn (Caernarfon) as well as the Braf cafe just down the road from the cottage who do wonderful cakes. We all thoroughly enjoyed our staff and no doubt we will be back.

What a fab house! I booked here for a weekend with the girls and it did not disappoint. The house was beautifully decorated, extremely clean and had everything we needed for a weekend stay. We will definitely be booking again.
