Top 5 Holiday Cottages in Criccieth

Looking for a place to stay in a beautiful seaside village in Wales? Let us introduce you to our favourite holiday cottages in Criccieth. This beautiful little Welsh coastal village seemingly has it all: ocean rollers, mountain views and an imposing medieval castle to watch over it all. Criccieth lies at the gateway to the Llŷn Peninsula, on the shores of Cardigan Bay. On the original Victorian steam train line, it has long been a destination for families looking to get away from it all. It’s an easy-living town that has retained all of its old school charm. Think rock pooling, castle ramparts and rum and raisin ice cream (or whatever is your favourite 😊). You’ll find traditional Welsh tearooms, plenty of great places to eat out, independent shops and some wonderfully browsable galleries and antiques. There’s even a traditional Welsh clog maker who still has his workshop in the town. Our holiday cottages in Criccieth…

We couldn’t have stayed anywhere nicer. Thankyou so much!! Highly recommended.” – The Brophys, Melbourne. My husband and I stayed here in July with my parents and four children. Obviously, visiting as a large family we were really looking for a nice spacious, fully furnished self-catering cottage. We were pleased to see that, that was exactly what we got. We saw online that the cottage appeared to be nice and contemporary which is great if you’re looking for that ‘hotel-like experience’ where all your amenities are new and up to date.

Self Catering Barn Near Pwllheli, Llyn Peninsula - Bryncaled Diary

“Despite the inclement weather we all had a fabulous break in a delightful, well appointed cottage. It was close to all amenities and yet remote enough for peace and tranquility. Facilities were spot on, in fact we enjoyed it so much, we considered taking a few extra days onto our fortnight’s holiday, but unfortunately it was booked. It was our granddaughters 1st holiday, 1st time at the beach, 1st tooth, and 1st paddle in the sea, many other 1sts – so memorable we will have to do it again very shortly. Cannot recommend it highly enough.” – Alan Jones, Shropshire As it was such a lovely day, we decided we would spend our first day in Aberdaron so the girls could enjoy the beach.

Holiday Diary - Holiday Cottage near Snowdon in Rhyd Ddu

“The cottage was absolutely beautiful. It was quiet but within easy reach of amenities. The cottage is very high spec, well decorated, furnished and just felt comfortable like a home from home, and the views are absolutely spectacular. I would really highly recommend it, as a good location to North Wales with a very relaxing atmosphere.” – Cathy McAllister, Ellesmere Port. When we arrived to this cosy little holiday cottage near Snowdon, we were so surprised that this was an old quarryman’s cottage, given the clean-cut and contemporary feel to the place. Still, it didn’t lose its character with its little inglenook and log burner. Once my partner and I had set our things down and unpacked a bit, one of the first things we did was light a fire (which was enough to heat the whole house). Another favourite part of the property had to be the little stream running at the bottom of the…
