Holiday Cottage Near The Beach in Criccieth | Towyn

Dog FriendlyNear BeachNear PubReal Fire

Towyn is a traditional two bedroom holiday cottage near the beach in Criccieth, North Wales. The cottage has big spacious living areas and two comfortable bedrooms and is walking distance from a couple of pubs, some lovely restaurants and a small collection of local shops and delicatessens. A perfect location for a traditional seaside holiday.

In the living room, two comfortable sofas sit facing each other either side of a lovely real log fire. Whilst at the other end of the room, an impressive solid wood dining table and chairs sit in front of a large picture window looking seaward. The adjoining snug come lounge is smaller but still plenty of room for four people. This room includes that all important TV and a living flame gas fire this time. The fire is a lovely focal point naturally, but the modern central heating system will also provide more than enough heat through the entire house.

An original pastel blue enamelled Aga is a welcome addition to what is otherwise a thoroughly modern kitchen. Simple cream kitchen units under a beach effect worktop sit under double glazed windows facing out onto the lovely and mature rear garden. The breakfast table is a great option for more informal meal times or if you’re busy preparing a picnic for that family day on the beach

There are two bedrooms in the cottage. One twin room and one double room. The double room is especially spacious with a king sized bed and lots of storage space. Both rooms are bright and airy and wonderfully quiet thanks to the thick stonewalls. The bathroom is split into two with a large shower cubicle and washbasin in one room and a WC in a second room. A great arrangement if, like me, you have two teenage daughters who seem to spend forever in the shower.

Floor Plans




The cottage has a lovely elevated garden to the rear of the house. Mature shrubs and lawn help frame a wonderfully informal outdoor space. Views of both the sea and Criccieth castle are the icing on the cake.

There is a nice collection of shops and delis in the village. Idris Café with its freshly baked bread and cakes is a favourite of mine. But if you want a bit more choice a short 10 minute drive along the coast road will bring you to the larger harbour towns of Pwllheli and Porthmadog. Both towns have the standard chain supermarkets as well as a mix of shops, pubs and restaurants.

If you get bored of the beach there’s lots to do in the area. Paintballing, cross-country Segway rides, animal pet farm, go carting and more are also nearby. Guests should book ahead for larger attractions such as the Zip Wire in Bethesda. An info pack is sent out automatically to all our paying guests but drop me an email if you want a free copy.

Lovely cottage, great location.

We had a great holiday in this home from home. Absolutely amazing location. It is much larger than it appears on the pictures. Great living space to relax in. Really well equipped kitchen to cook in. Lovely well maintained large garden with amazing views from the picnic bench.

It was great to be able to park on the shared drive straight outside the property (look for the P (parking sign) by the front door, and you ‘pull in’ to a spot, to keep the private drive wide enough for cars to pass, as its a shared drive with next door. Don’t park in front of any of the garages as access is required. We found this obvious from the welcome book, P sign and note in the kitchen, but the arrival instructions hadn’t made it clear. We were able to work it out when we got there. But it could have been explained in the arrival instructions, so it was more clear.

The neighbours who share the drive are a lovely friendly retired couple who took time to say hello and were really helpful and went out of their way to be kind and welcoming to our family.

We stayed at Towyn cottage in Criccieth and it was so lovely, we would definitely go back in a minute. Such a great location, five minutes walk to the beach and the town. Fabulous views from the garden of the sea and the castle on the hill. The cottage was gorgeous with two lovely sunny separate sitting rooms, both with very comfortable couches so it is possible to relax. This is not the case in a lot of other places we have stayed in. Good off road parking and lovely neighbours too! Wish we were still there!!

Towyn, is a lovely big cottage, plenty of space and very nice comfortable rooms, with all the bits you need, walking distance to the lovely beach and the very pretty town of Criccieth and lots of great places to eat and visit nearby. Towyn has a lovely garden which our dogs loved ( only thing missing was a couple of garden chairs ) to sit out and enjoy a coffee after along day out. We had a lovely holiday and would definitely recommend and return in the future. 🙂

Towyn was just fantastic. So well and thoughtfully equipped. That was my 3rd visit there. I couldn’t recommended it enough! Thank you.


Just returned from our third visit to this home from home. Great location and views. Friendly neighbours. What more can we say.

We enjoyed our stay at Towyn, and some beautiful sunny weather all week. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped. We found that the lightweight chairs we brought were very useful in the garden.

We would recommend the filled rolls at Idris Cafe, the bakery in the village.

We hope to visit again sometime.

Criccieth is a great base for exploring North Wales. Towyn is a lovely large cottage, clean and well equipped with great views from the garden.
The neighbour David Roberts, who is in his nineties, is very friendly and we agreed with him the parking arrangements for the cars on arrival. We called in for lunch at Caffi Cwrt Tea Rooms in the centre of Criccieth. Excellent food and friendly service. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Beautiful, well equipped and comfortable cottage. Great position on the road into Criccieth, within walking distance of both the seafront and shops. Friendly neighbours! We enjoyed eating at Dylans, fish and chips from the shop near the castle and of course ice cream from Cadwalladers.
First time staying at Towyn and hope to return soon


Location Location Location
The views from this property are stunning up on the top garden castle and sea views that stretch for miles
Easy walking distance to all the local facilities loved Cricceth as this was our first visit to this area we normally stay closer to Barmouth. lovely spacious cottage, friendly neighbour with adjoining drive,if your bringing your dog this property is dog friendly but the garden is not fully secure they can wonder round the top garden and down the drive so be aware.
Only criticism would be that there was no welcome pack on arrival and we have had some lovely ones left in previous properties also to provide a radio in the kitchen and a little extra spring clean then this would be perfect.
