5 star large house in Criccieth overlooking beach. Ideal for family holidays.
About Jane Pinnington
I live in Cheshire with my husband Mark. We have 8 children between us and a scruffy little dog called kitty. Mark works as a lecturer at Liverpool university and I am a support worker for the elderly with Dementia. Mark and I are big Harley Davidson fans and when we are not enjoying our house in Criccieth we are enjoying ride outs with our pals on the bike.
Jane Pinnington purchased this House in 2012
Why Jane Pinnington chose Criccieth
Our families have always holidayed in Criccieth; our parents, and us as parents with our children. Mark & I married here in Criccieth, and when Ardro came up for sale, we knew it was the home for us. Mark's parents honeymooned 3 doors away from Ardro in 1947. Criccieth and it's way of life is in our blood. If your still in any doubt please check out our reviews.
What makes this House unique
We benefit from the peace & tranquillity that comes with being by the sea in a town that has essentially remained unchanged for decades. Walking (or just sitting) on the beach replenishes the soul. Fishing from the beach or just net fishing from the rock pools while dolphin watching cannot be beaten.

Wonderful three night stay in Criccieth
We 6 loved this property! It's perfectly situated overlooking the beach and is an easy walk to all that Criccieth offers. The house itself was clean and comfy, and as is often the case was even nicer than the photos showed.
Communication with Jane was a breeze, and I'd highly recommend this home for your stay in Criccieth.
Fabulous house, they’ve really thought of everything with the small details like binoculars for dolphin watching, amazing location, perfect for big families (we have 4 children). Highly recommended!
Thank you for a great review. We're glad you all had a fabulous time and you saw the dolphins, what a bonus. Come back again soon . Jane and Mark P
Jewel in the crown
8 of us stayed here in a lovely comfortable house in an amazing location, well stocked inside and out. Lots to do and see with lovely little pubs and restaurants in which to eat and drink. Communication with the owner was easy and answered all our questions. Hoping to make it an annual event
Wonderful house in a great location!
We were two couples and the house was perfect. The master suite looks over the sea and the castle--a perfect place to sleep, relax or have coffee. Plenty of bathrooms, closets, a large sitting room looking over the sea and a kitchen with everything we needed! We had a lovely week!
Jane was very helpful, leaving excellent restaurant suggestions. The town is charming and easy to navigate. Everyone in our party was fit so the 3 story layout suited us just fine. I wouldn't recommend the house for anyone who has trouble with stairs, however. With the kitchen and dining on the ground floor and sitting room and 2 bedrooms & shower/bath on the first floor (American 2nd), the stairs might be a problem.
We loved our week here and highly recommend the house to active adults and families!
Unbeatable location, great house
We were given a warm welcome and shown around the house, and there was a lovely selection of treats left for us too.
The house is clean and well maintained, and stocked with everything you need. The owners use it regularly for family get-togethers so it feels homely.
The location is perfect - right next to the beach, just a little elevated. Also next to the castle and the town. You can walk to a surprisingly well- stocked garage for grocery requirements, and there are supermarkets a short drive away. We were even treated to the magical sight of dolphins one evening, swimming very close to the shore for around 15 minutes or more. The house has several pairs of binoculars, but really the view is just beautiful without them.
Wifi was good throughout the house.
A perfect holiday home for our two families (4 adults, children 15,14,12,11).
We are delighted that you enjoyed your break and our house. Seeing the dolphins is always an extra bonus! Thank you and we hope that we'll welcome you back for a future holiday. Mark and Jane P
