“Another lovely stay ! ”
Reviewed October 1, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We returned to Gorlys after such a lovely holiday last year and had an even better time this year. Lucky with the weather we enjoyed our doggie walks down to the beach . Thanks to Joanne for the lovely cake and wine. We sat out a lot in the back garden enjoying the new porch. Restful nights sleep on those comfy beds. Such a relaxing, peaceful cottage, we will be back next year !

“Comfortable, well equipped cottage in a great location”
Reviewed September 19, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

From the moment we opened the front door I knew we had picked a winner! The cottage was clean, light and spacious. A large hallway with ample space for shoes and coats. As we were staying with our three year old we ate at home most nights, so appreciated the well equipped kitchen. Both bedrooms were a great size as was the bathroom and this just added to the comfort of the property. The outdoor space was very child friendly and it was great to be able to park directly outside the property.

We were touched by the generous welcome basket and would like to thank Joanne and Paul for such an enjoyable stay. I'm sure we will be back!

“Fabulous holiday home”
Reviewed August 19, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Gorlys was recently renovated to a very high standard. Top quality appliances, fixtures and fittings, comfortable furniture, pure cotton bedding, and equipped with everything a family would need on holiday, down to folding chairs and a windbreak. Spotlessly clean too. Tucked away on the road leading to Black Rock Sands. Highly recommended.

“A lovely holiday home in a fabulous location topped with great customer service.”
Reviewed August 18, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The reviews I read prior to going were all good and they weren't wrong. The house is pretty perfect (we did have a prolonged power cut during our stay but that was throughout the whole of Morfa Bychan so not the owners' fault at all). Most important for us was an enclosed garden for the dogs and that was great and as others have said the canopy area is a real boon. We didn't have great weather but it was warm enough to sit out under the canopy as it provided some shelter. I knew the area beforehand through staying many times at a local caravan park so knew the beach was stunning and only being a 5 minute walk away was great for morning and evening dog walks. We tried the local pub but it wasn't our type of place. The chippy was, as always, fantastic with fish to die for. Went to Harlech and enjoyed the castle. Will definitely be coming back to this cottage. The owners really do go the extra mile to make sure you are welcomed and your needs accommodated and they are good communicators too.

“Perfect Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed June 18, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The cottage lived up to our expectations, having read previous reviews. The cottage had everything you would need,was spotless inside, and is a great location for a holiday with dogs, with an enclosed garden, and a short walk to a huge dog friendly beach, past the dog friendly pub.We met the owner Joanne when she came to cut the grass, and having mentioned a wok would have been useful, one appeared later that day.We agree with all the good things previous reviewers have said, and really appreciated the comfort when the weather was unpredictable.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed May 9, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

What a great place to stay! The cottage was really comfortable, lovely little touches, welcome pack and everything you need, a real home from home. Location fabulous 5 minutes to the beach, great for our dog, also, enclosed garden which is both safe and secure for pets and children. The canopy at the back was great for eating al fresco, lovely relaxing break, will definitely be back, thanks to the owners who were very helpful and nothing was to much trouble. A real find!
