The cottage is in a lovely location, close to the village. I thought the lounge, dining area and outside space very good.But the bedrooms, and bathrooms were inadequate. The third bedroom had what appeared to be a double but was only a three-quarters bed. Only one toilet! Not enough for seven people.
The kitchen was ok but hey it's white goods very dated. Some of the storage heaters didn't work.
It could be a very nice!
Great facilities and a calming atmosphere. The only thing of note is path to the property was anxious about damaging my vehicle. Very helpful owners nothing was too much trouble would stay there again.
We loved our stay at Melinsoch and found it a perfect house for our friends to gather of an evening due to its location and dining room space. Perfect location for beach, shops, bars and restaurants. The children loved the outside space with the stream, 'secret passage ways', dens and rope swings! We loved our break so much that we have already booked for a longer stay next year!
This was my second visit to Absersoch and I chose to stay again at Melinsoch. The main reasons are the location and its pet friendliness!
I have read some of the reviews on here and want to be really honest with you. If you, like me, sometimes yearn to be by the sea in a safe environment for teenagers to be able to do their own thing for a few hours, to walk on numerous yet clean dog friendly beaches in the UK and to eat out at some of the nicest and most welcoming places then you really can't go wrong. Melinsoch is brilliant for this. Its location is perfect to wander into town for a few early evening g&ts, to eat at the literally 2mins away Coconut Kitchen and mooch around the interesting shops. With a car you can take the kids and dogs to other nearby beaches for full days out exploring and find your own favourites. The Ty Coch isn't far away, Llanbedrog is great for a morning walk on the beach and breakfast by the sea at the new beachbar, Aqua and Hell's Mouth is worth a visit too. For a few days away from busy lives, you can't go wrong. The cottage is like visiting an old friend. It has all you need to enjoy precious time away when you want your dog with you and therefore going abroad is not an option.
Melinsoch is a lovely cottage on the outskirts of one of North Wales's nicest villages - Abersoch. The cottage is on the banks of a stream and in situated on a beautiful location. The interior is a bit tired - decorating could do with updating so we felt it was a bit overpriced given that we had to also bring all our own linen / towels. Still, a very nice stay.
Thank you Richard and Jalna for letting us use your cottage. We had a lovely time and the lof fire was fantastic , all the better as you had it ready for just a match, and Richard delivered more coal to make sure we started cosy.
We had great fun with the table tennis and some where a little reluctant to tidy away to set the table for dinner. The cottage had everything we needed for a great weekend .
Thank you again look forward to seeing Jalna in her tiger swim suit at the new year dip!
Take care for now and we will look forward to coming back.
Myself and 5 friends (aged20-32) stayed at Melinsoch for 2 nights to celebrate my birthday. Having booked the house because of the great price, we were extremely impressed with what we received for our money. A great location, tucked away from the hussle and bussle however close enough to walk to the beach, village and the pubs! The house has some fantastic old features which makes it intriguing and special. It has all the amenities you could need including a real fire, large dining table and outdoor space. The house is old and the interior suits the design of the house. It was comfortable, cute and perfect for our stay. The owners communicated throughally before our visit and the house was clean, tidy and ready for when we arrived.
We did get slightly lost so potentially more detailed directions would help as you arrive into abersoch otherwise, thank you for letting us use your lovely holiday home. I am sure my friends will be sharing it with their family and friends.
