We have been to Ardro before so coming back to Criccieth was a very easy decision for all of our family. The weather was just fantastic in the 27/30 fah. We went to Blackrock sands to play Laboulle and drink a few cool beers as the weather was so hot. Eating out was easy Poachers, is always great, but we also had a few BBQ.Ardro has everything you could ever need,and the welcome from Jane and Mark was the best, can't wait for next year when we are coming back for two weeks.
We returned to Ardro with another set of granchildren, after our very enjoyable August holiday 2016. Jane was veryaccommodating and ensured we had everything that we needed when we arrived (plus a yummy hamper and ice-lollies for the grand children).
We are even more in love with the house having spent the half term there enjoying all that Ardro and it's location has to offer. There are so many local attractions to suit all budgets.
Our grand children enjoyed climbing the rocks on the beach and exploring the fabulous rock pools.
We spent a creative time at the Piggery Pottery together - a good rainy day activity with prices starting from as little as £3.
We revisited the Llama Trecking at Morfa Bychan - having grand children was our excuse for doing it again!
An afternoon crabbing in Caernarfon is a must for our family; who can catch the biggest/smallest/most unusual colour? Followed by an icecream from the van and before you know it it's bedtime.
There are so many attractions it's worth researching a few before you come and book in advance as there are savings with online bookings.
Staying at Ardro is the perfect base for a holiday as you can access attractions easily, get onto the beach within seconds or stay inside and enjoy the views from the living room. We saw a small school of dolphins leaping just off the shore much to our grand children's delight.
Thank you Jane and Mark and thank you to your grandson for sharing his bucket and spade with our grand daughters.
The house was a base for our annual golf tour for 6 gents.
The house was spotless, plenty of space and loads of mod cons to make our stay enjoyable.
Great views from the house overlooking the beach at Criccieth.
Loads of local pubs and restaurants not forgetting the famous chippy which we had on our first night, truly scrumptious.
Great base to explore North Wales.
Finally the owners were really helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
Thank you Jane for a fantastic holiday x
The title says it all..... lie in bed, listen to the waves lapping the beach and the silence.
PS All the other reviews re location, cleanliness are spot on... stay again absolutely
Ardro is a lovely family home, warm and welcoming from the moment you contact Jane. The location is excellent with beautiful sea and castle views, walking to the beaches and the centre of town is very easy as is the car parking opposite the house.
The house itself is spacious, comfortable and very well furnished with everything you could need. Jane couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful.
I would recommend Ardro without hesitation.
Stayed for a weekend break at this lovely 3 storey home. Behind Criccieth castle and just a short walk from the main beach and town (stones through from a good chip shop and ice cream parlour !)
Picked this holiday let as the décor and style looked like my cup of tea and was not disappointed. It is a real family home with obviously some treasured items of antiques and family items around the house. Quirky window hangings in the boot room and a quaint little courtyard at the back.
The only slight negative for our party (several elderly members of the family) was that the living room is on the first floor. There is a downstairs twin bedroom and toilet though, but do note might not suit anyone with difficulties getting up and down stairs.
That said, living room lovely with views out to sea and really enjoyed the feel of a home from home.
Unfortunately, except the one day we had terrible rain and gusts of wind. Managed just about to get to the top of Criccieth Castle without being blown off and some lovely views from there.
Despite weather, enjoyed the break and could easily move into the house permanently - if ever the owners decided to sell !
