We were so happy with the cottage. It was nicely decorated and had everything we needed. We spent a really lovely week here... wish it could have been longer.

We were very impressive by the cleanliness and modern up to date facilities such as a digi box and 2 TVs. We also liked the supply of books and games which was a very nice touch. Nice large bathroom and lovely large bath. The top floor bedroom was delightful.
On the negative side 2 of the 3 bedrooms backed directly onto a wall so had no view and little light - however this was ameliorated by the fact this is a holiday home therefore it was a base rather than somewhere we spent a lot of time in our bedrooms! The leather sofas looked good but were very uncomfortable and we spent most of our time sliding off them.
Pwllheli was a bit workaday with quite a lot of council housing right by the sea - lucky tenants. However it is a naturally beautiful location and surrounded by breathtaking Snowdonia/North Wales.
