Great for the agile

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is comfortable and warm with everything provided and in good order. It will be especially appropriate for families. At present I have a mobility problem and the stairs are steep. The 500 metres to the beach is probably correct but there is a very steep hill to the cove which made it essential to use the car - but there's parking close by. The weather was not good enough to make use of the garden.

Lovely cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, nicely furnished throughout.

Very cosy on a wet windy day. Comfy beds.

15 minute walk to Nefyn Beach just perfect. It has a nice sized dog friendly garden furnished with table,, chairs and a BBQ. Ideal cottage for a relaxing holiday. The neighbours are lovely too. I could happily live here. We hope to be back soon for a longer stay next time.
