Lovely New Years break

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect. It was so cosy even without the log burner on. We had two families staying together with kids and dogs, and we loved the open plan lounge and diner it worked perfectly. There was plenty of utensils, plates, cooking bits and pieces and towels etc. Cottage immaculately clean. Kids enjoyed the stream at the bottom of the garden. Loads of beautiful coastal walks right on the doorstep, it was perfect! Highly recommend, we would love to return in the summer

Fantastic cottage, every need catered for

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed out stay at this fantastic cottage. Couldn't of asked for anything more, the owners had thought of everything and it was spotlessly clean.

The area is brilliant, did plenty of walking. Even the neighbours are great, very helpful and kind.

Fantastic local beaches and would recommend a drive to Aberdaron.

Will definitely be returning when we visit this area again. Thank you

Great family cottage in lovely part of Wales

  • 5 of 5

Very attractive, clean, cosy and well-equipped cottage in a great spot in the heart of Nefyn.

Nice quiet lane with friendly neighbours. Within there is a generous living space and the recent renovation works have been done to a high quality.

Our 18 month old absolutely loved the place: the garden and large downstairs room, toy basket, as well as the nice coastal walk from the doorstep along the cliff top to Nefyn beach (with lots of blackberry foraging along the way!).

So much to do in the wider area with easy access to a great array of beaches, pubs, small hamlets and villages, as well as Abersoch, Pwillheli etc…

Will definitely return to Arwel and would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.

Amazing cottage in Nefyn.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our weekend in Nefyn and certainly weren't disappointed. Arwel Beach Cottage has been refurbished to a brilliant standard.

We have two young boys aged 2 and 6 and couldn't have asked for more!

The cottage was spotless and has every mod con you need inc wi fi, freeview tv, log fire, board/kids games, wii, dvd's,fully equipped kitchen, garden, bbq, great views and seconds away from the coastal path for walks and access to the beach.

There are a couple of shops close by for supplies, a couple of takeaways and we had a pub tea at the Y Bryncynan Inn which was really nice and the staff were really friendly.

The cottage is a short drive to the Ty Coch Inn and you are on the doorstep to some stunning scenery.

We will definitely be wanting to book again and can certainly recommend the cottage for it's location, beautiful renovation and peaceful surroundings.

Thanks Mark and Emma.
