The cottage was simply delightful; set in beautiful landscaped gardens, which the owner must have spent a lifetime tending. There was a wonderful craggy outcrop to explore & amazing sea views from the front windows. The house was well furnished & very clean, with the kitchen being well stocked with plenty of utensils. The 1st floor lounge was cosy but we did feel that the TV was too small for the room size. One thing that would be an asset would be a cloakroom/bathroom on the 1st floor.

We love it so much that we are giong back for our fourth stay in September 2010, this time with mum and dad and auntie and uncle.
Wonderful view towards the sea from the upstairs lounge and kitchen window, green fields to the side with cattle and sheep grazing.
Beautiful, well-maintained grounds of Penmaen estate.
Outstanding location within 10 minutes walking distance of lovely Pwllheli town and our favourite Michelin-starred restaurant Plas Bodegroes.
Friendly welcomes wherever we go, be it shopping or sight-seeing.
We like it so much that we feel homesick!
