Just returned from a 4 days stay at Pencwmwl and had a fantastic time with family and friends.

Firstly the directions given by the owner were first class, we found the house without any problems. Upon arrival we were very impressed with the location, standard and layout of the property. We travelled with 4 young children who absolutely loved the games room and spent a lot of time on the pool table and playing the board games. The house was very spacious and had everything you need to enjoy your stay. It literally was a home from home.

Had a great few days away and the location is idyllic. Would definitely recommend the property and will definitely look to return in the future.

Stayed with hubby, daughter, son in law and 9 month old baby. All had a great time. Cottage was equipped with everything we needed (including cot and highchair). Within easy reach of great days out but we all loved the peace at the cottage too. Had games nights every evening - loads to choose from. Can't wait to go back

“Fantastic holiday, stunning location, loved the cottage”
Reviewed October 2, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had a wonderful holiday. Communication with the owner was excellent before and after. Directions accurate and other information very detailed. Pictures of the area looked lovely and we weren't disappointed! Views all around were spectacular. We were blessed with lovely weather. Breakfast on the patio in September can't be bad. Cottage had everything we needed and more. Car essential. We had a photographer, a fisherman and an artist in our family and they were all in their element! We would highly recommend this cottage and would love to go back.

“Best holiday ever! Perfect”
Reviewed August 30, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Lovely, scenic tranquil location, plenty to do in the well appointed cottage for my partner, toddler, teenagers and parents-in-law. TVs, DVDs, games room with pool table, table tennis, board games etc. Out and about, all the towns (Abersoch, Pwelli etc.) within reach and the surfers' beach 'Hell's Mouth' was about 15 minutes away - we really enjoyed that. The cottage was even perfect for a surfing break with the utility room for drying our wetsuits. House was spotless and well equipped, could not fault it.

“Fantastic Holiday”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Myself, hubby and two children aged 10 & 7 stayed here in July and had the best family holiday ever. We were blessed with the weather being in the mid twenties every day so got around most of the local beaches (all fabulous in their own way). However, regardless of the weather the house would have made the holiday for us. It was so spacious, comfortable and spotless, with everything you could possibly need to enjoy your holiday. We had a couple of lovely late evening barbeques while enjoying the spectacular views and the owners provided solid information on everything you could possibly need including the best attractions and eateries. Our bible for the week!!! Would love to go back and couldn't recommend Pencwmwl more highly.

“Incredible views, fantastic house, total tranquility”
Reviewed June 22, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

If you are looking for a peaceful, well equipped rental in Wales with fabulous views and easy access to Abersoch/Aberdaron/Morfa Nefyn - this is the place for you! Located up in the hills, the views are spectacular and the house has everything you need to accommodate 8 guests. From a large dining area, patio, BBQ, games room..there is everything you need to enjoy your stay! In addition, the owners offer a fabulous service, will full information and incredible directions that will get you right to the door! We enjoyed a weekend of sun with our family and will 100% be visiting again! The only complaint from our grandparents was that we hadn't rented it for longer!
