Large and Lovely Welsh Home from Home !

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful holiday we've had at Bodfan!! We have been very excited about coming and this amazingly beautiful house has surpassed all our expectations. It is so comfortable and spacious and immaculately maintained and furnished. Everything you could wish for is on hand at Bodfan to make staying there in a big family group a dream. We celebrated a tenth wedding anniversary and a 65th birthday at Bodfan as a group of 8 adults and two toddlers. We enjoyed some lovely meals at The Cliffs Inn and The Bryncynan which are both very close to Bodfan. The little ones enjoyed playing in the safely enclosed back garden and in the playground just up the road. We also enjoyed Morfa Nefyn's beautiful beach and trips to the beaches at Abersoch, Aberdaron and Pwllheli. The April weather was very kind to us too which was a bonus. Very many thanks to Helen and the Wareham family for allowing us to stay in beautiful Bodfan. It has been lovely corresponding with Helen and she has been extremely helpful and very thoughtful in every way. I do hope to return to Bodfan one day and would highly recommend it to family and friends.

Brilliant location and great house.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Friday evening to find everything we would need as a family of 8 adults and 2 children. The house is a great size for all of us and was very well equipped, more so than in other houses we've stayed in. The shop across the way had a great variety of items, there was a nice pub less than 10 minutes walk away and the gorgeous beach gave us spectacular views. I would highly recommend this house and the owner was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. We all agreed that we would definitely stay here again.

Lovely half term holiday in Morfa Nefyn

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant stay in Bodfan, 6 adults, 3 children and 2 babies.

The location is lovely being just a short 10 minute walk to the nearest beach. At low tide you can walk along the beach to the Ty Coch which I can't recommend enough At high tide it can easily be reached via the golf course and it really is worth a visit for it's great selection of proper beer and lovely sandwiches.

The Cliffs Inn is en-route to the beach and their food is delicious.

Bodfan provided plenty of space for all 11 of us. Comfortably furnished and well equipped with lots of homely touches throughout. It's a great base for the local area and was perfect for cosy nights in catching up with family while the children slept upstairs.

A fabulous house for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a two weeks' stay at Bodfan - 12 of us for part of the time, spread over three generations - and the house accommodated us extremely well. We never felt on top of each other as there are several rooms and places in which to sit or be. The spacious kitchen coped with our large number admirably and we did not feel on top of each other. The children's bedroom with TV and toys on the first floor proved to be a great facility. On arrival the house was very clean and tidy and was as described in the accommodation details. The terrace at the back is large with enough dining seating for 12. The small, contained grassed area is great to sit in or for children to safely play in. We parked several cars round the back of the house.

Bodfan has been nicely modernised, it is light and attractively furnished and has all you need for a great family holiday. The kitchen is very well knitted out and easy to use. The bedrooms on the second floor are really very nice; white paint, neutral walls and blinds and somehow very restful. I enjoyed sleeping in the twin bedded room and one of my grand-daughters came up and joined me as she liked it up there too.

I have been going to Nefyn for 58 years so I may be a bit biased but it is a wonderful place to holiday if you like being active. Bodfan is very well placed as you are five minutes walk from Morfa Nefyn beach - and about 20 minutes' walk from Porthdinllaen one way and Nefyn beach the other. We had one week of sunshine, the second was grey and a little wet at times but we enjoyed them both. There is a lot you can do if you like being outdoors and Bodfan is a great place to go back to at the end of the day. The Morfa Nefyn shops are great and you can get all you need locally.

Helen, the owner, was very helpful and quick to respond. I recommend Bodfan wholeheartedly and would book it again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. Your comments echo our own feelings towards Bodfan so it is truly lovely to hear that it serves other family groups in the way we enjoy it ourselves. Thank you for being perfect guests. We hope to welcome you back and increase the number of years you have been visiting Morfa Nefyn further still!! Best wishes, Helen and Ian Wareham

'Within Touching distance'

  • 5 of 5

Property fantastic, spacious, well spread out, 2 bathrooms, 6 bedrooms, big kitchen. House airy and light, welcoming. Spotless on arrival, everything. No problems with hot water, especially since one of the showers is electric, which makes a difference, if you have a lot of people and you all need a shower. Decked area out back for BBQ or just sitting. Able to get 2 cars in front, one out back. TV's in 4 rooms for those who like to keep up with things. Morfa Nefyn beach was less than 7 mins walk, Nefyn was a 5 min drive the other way, a supermarket type shop less than a minute away, a butchers. A 15 minute drive to Pwhelli. Location great, house great, am looking for a negative but can't find one. The girl who looks after the house made herself available if there were any problems, as did the owner. We mainly used the beaches and walked up the mountains, so it was great base to operate from. Kitchen great for entertaining, as we had lots of people round and there was loads of space. We would recommend it, customer service, amenities, clean and well maintained, would and have recommended the property to friends and family. Brilliant holiday had by all.

Owner's Response: What a lovely review- thank you! It's so important to us that our guests enjoy their time in our house and we have tried to make it a great place to entertain, relax, socialise and for everyone still to be able to have some space despite holidaying with up to 11 other people! Thanks too for recommending us and for booking again for two weeks next year again! We look forward to welcoming you again. Best wishes, The Warehams
