Fabulous house for a family weekend away!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accommodation for our family weekend away. We have been going for weekends away as a big group quite some years now and stayed in some lovely places, but this house goes straight to the top of the list!! - the facilities, the decor and furniture, but most of all the attention to detail were second to none!! - there was nothing they hadn't thought of, for all generations in our party of 16 (ages ranging from 3-75). Cooking for so many can be tough, but the kitchen facilities made it so much easier (2 ovens, 2 dishwashers, 2 toasters, 2 kettles, 2 slow cookers, 2 massive fridges......and more...) - there wasn't a meal we couldn't have cooked!!! - and to be able to all sit around a fantastic table with sea-views after a walk up Snowden was just wonderful!! - thanks for a Wonderfull weekend!!!

Lovely houses!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect houses for 25 of us who went for a long weekend away in both of the houses. Great location right on the waterfront, absolutely stunning inside (just like the photos!), made for a great trip. Would love to return in the summer time when hopefully the weather would be better.

Fantastic holiday home, we loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Glan Y Mor was beautifully decorated with each room having its own individual style and colour scheme, the house is so spacious, even with a large number of people and many children, everyone had ample space to feel comfortable and relaxed. Fantastic for children with a brilliant games room and 10 steps away from the beach. Within easy walk of the park and castle. We all had a wonderful time, thank you so much.

Glan Y Mor is an absolutely stunning holiday home, right on the beachfront in Criccieth. The house caters for your every need, is spotlessly clean and immaculate and very very spacious. We stayed with friends and young children and cannot recommend this holiday home highly enough, it was complete luxury and we had a fantastic holiday.

Bay View and Glan y mor are ideally situated in the picturesque coastal Victorian resort of Criccieth.

Criccieth is located to the east of the popular Llyn Peninsular and adjacent west of the Snowdonia National Park.

This pretty unspoilt village has retained its Victorian charm with colourful terraced houses and hotels fronting onto two beaches which are divided by a stony outcrop which houses the impressive Criccieth castle.

Amenities in Criccieth include a wide variety of tasteful shops, tea rooms, restaurants, pubs and galleries.

Bay View and Glan y Mor are located on Marine Terrace, which is located on the town's quieter west beach. Marine Terrace is a very quiet road, generally being occupied by residential local traffic only.

Bay View & Glan y Mor provide the ideal holiday destination from which to explore the fantastic beaches, beautiful mountains, picturesque villages, and the host of activities Northwest Wales has to offer. An excellent range of attractions awaits visitors to Bay View, with wildlife centres, outdoor activities, train trips, historic sites, museums, fine gardens, golf and more to choose from.

Bay View and Glan y Mor are located directly on the seafront in beautiful Criccieth. Access to the beach is directly opposite Bay View. Several other beautiful beaches are within easy walking distance along the well maintained coastal path which can be joined directly outside Bay View! Further afield Black Rock Sands is located approximately four miles west. In addition Harlech, Abersoch, Nefyn and Pwllheli beaches are only a short drive away.

The Snowdonia National Park begins a mere 5 miles away and is a magnificent playground for those who love walking, mountain climbing or just scenery watching.

The Park covers 823 square miles of diverse landscapes. As well as being the largest National Park in Wales, Snowdonia boasts the highest mountain in Wales, and the largest natural lake in Wales, as well as a wealth of picturesque villages like Beddgelert (11 miles).

Snowdonia is renowned for being a very special place for walkers with mountain peaks, lakes, forests, rivers and coastal areas. The National Park is working on developing a network of walks and more will be added every year. In addition Snowdonia National Park has a vast amount of cycling and mountain biking trails suitable for all abilities. The Park also hosts other outdoor activities such as white water rafting and climbing.

Portmeirion is a popular tourist village located just outside of Porthmadog, approximately 8 miles from Bay View. It is Wales' 3rd largest visitor attraction attracting 250, 000 visitors in 2009.

Portmeirion was designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975 in the style of an Italian village, which is now is now acknowledged as a unique architectural work of art. The village is now owned by a charitable trust.

The village stands on a rugged cliff top on its own private peninsula overlooking Cardigan Bay. It is surrounded by 145 acres of sub-tropical woodlands and miles of sandy beaches. The village has always been run as a hotel, which uses the majority of the buildings as hotel rooms, together with shops, a cafe, tea-room, and restaurant.

Portmeirion has served as the location for numerous films and television shows, most famously serving as The Village in the 1960s television show The Prisoner. The show became a cult classic, and fans continue to visit Portmeirion, which hosts annual Prisoner fan conventions.

The popular harbour town of Porthmadog is located 5 miles away. Porthmadog is rich in maritime history and in times gone by, it was a vital, busy shipping port for the international slate trade, brought down from Blaenau Ffestiniog. Both the Welsh Highland Railway and Ffestiniog Railway can be boarded at Porthmadog.

Further afield are the attractive towns of Beddgelert, Harlech, Pwllheli, Nefyn and Abersoch.
