Right from booking the property we were given clear and useful information from the owners. Getting there was relatively easy with the detailed directions provided, and the keypad actually felt more secure than collecting a key. We chose the Upper Lodge for it's secluded location (as a band planning to rehearse and compose music while visiting, this was essential) and were literally blown away on arrival - it could not have been a more beautiful and characterful cottage in such a lovely little clearing!

We experienced fantastic weather and made full use of the garden (eating breakfast out on the picnic table and sitting at the back of the garden with the large swing), as well as travelling to nearby Abersoch to enjoy the beach (again, completely unspoiled and picturesque).

We were a group of 4 and comfortably shared the building, and especially enjoyed the ample dining space and sitting room (complete with wood-burning fire!). It was very well-equipped and furnished in a homely manner (unlike a lot of other scarcely-furnished holiday apartments), and there was nothing that wewanted or felt wasn't provided.

However DO remember to take bottled water! It was easy to get dehydrated out in the sun all day and the tap water isn't drinkable.

We are already keen to return next year and I could not fault this great little holiday home nor the owners.

“PERFECT PEACEFUL GET AWAY ! DONT LET THIS ONE PASS YOU BY !”

We booked this property last minute as a quick peaceful get away was needed due to work stresses etc.... The booking process was simple and the owners then contacted me to ensure I had all the correct information, key pick up and directions. Paul was extremely helpful and only ever a phone call away. When we arrived we were BLOWN AWAY by the beautiful location of the property, the property has a breath taking garden with swing, benches and many little hide away's for children to get away and explore. Outside the front door there is a lovely little stream, I loved sitting out there in the morning having my cup of tea and listening to the trickle of the stream and looking at the stunning views.

Pictures of the property don’t do it justice you need to see this property to understand its charm and appeal. My son who is 9 is an Xbox nut and we thought he would moan all holiday about not having anything to do, EVERY morning he got up and went straight to play in the garden, building dens and playing on the swing, I WAS AMAZED not ONCE did I hear Mum I’m Bored!! ! !

The property has a cosy little sitting room with a wood burner (which I loved) and a beautiful large dining area to share lovely family meals.

Not far (15 mins) is Nefyn beach and this is a must visit, the beach is beautiful!

PLEASE IF YOU WANT PEACE, FAMILY TIME, SECLUSION AND PEACE FO MIND VISIT UPPER LODGE!!

Many thanks to Paul for a relaxing stay in his beautiful property.

Booked at the last minute. Though I got it booked during the Christmas time, I would say the rates were still nominal. Never thought will get such a nice and lovely place to stay. Rather saying it as difficult, I would say it was thrilling to reach the cottage. Reached there too late in the night so couldn't find the way. Thanks to Kay who helped us find the way home. She was so nice despite calling her so late at night.
The location and the surrounding are exceptionally good and would definitely like to go there again. Would definitely recommend people to stay there. Hats off to Paul and Kay (the owners) for such nice maintenance.

“not recomended”
Reviewed September 21, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

This cottage is on a narrow winding road in a very isolated part of Boduan.It took us a while to find the cottage.The property is dark,damp and musty.The windows of the two bedrooms,snug room and the lounge do not open,we were desperate to let some fresh air in but to no avail.The chest of drawers were full of dust and the window frames had not been clean for a while.The main bedroom bed mattress had seen better days.The t.v did not work the first day and the heating the next,but the caretaker was very helpful and fixed them both.The entry system works with a security code,but the out side light only works from the inside.We came in late one night but couldn't see anything to put the code.[panic,panic.] It is not practical for seven people to use one bathroom.however the lounge is nice with wood burning stove,the garden is beautiful with nice view of the welsh countryside.There are also some lovely walks from the cottage..

Booked a last minute break and everything went smoothly - no problems at all, owner very friendly and helpful. The cottage has character, efficient heating and a huge garden. Good walks nearby and beaches are an easy drive away. Even the mixed weather didn't spoil things.
