A quiet country lane will lead guests to the private off road parking to the rear of the house. From here we enter the house via the back door through a useful boot room and utility area with washing machine and extra sink. A modern fitted kitchen boasts a lovely beach wood worktop with inset Belfast sink. An eyline oven and induction hob will ensure any chefs in your group will feel very happy. A similar modern dining table in the kitchen will sit six quite comfortable but a more formal dining table is also provided in the adjoining room.

Two separate lounges could really help a family holiday go that much smoother I think. The first and largest lounge has plenty of room for everybody to sit and socialise together and enjoy the large flat screen TV perhaps. But the second cosier lounge with log fire is a nice retreat for anyone wanting to read a book and enjoy a glass of wine perhaps.

Between these two rooms a central hallway houses a small ground floor wc as well as an impressive stairway leading us to the first floor bedrooms. The first master bedroom is very spacious with a king sized double bed, lots of fitted wardrobes and a small en-suite wc. The second double bedroom is smaller but has a lovely view over the private garden. The third bedroom accommodates two single beds and again, plenty of storage and pleasing décor.

The family bathroom at the top of the stairs houses a large bath as well as a separate shower cubicle with lots of hot water provided by the large oil fuelled combi-boiler.

Located in a very quite rural position half way between the popular seaside town of Criccieth and the harbour town of Pwllheli, the cottage boasts a large mature and private garden to the front of the house with plenty of parking to the rear.

As suggested a 15 minute drive to the west will bring to the mountains of Snowdonia. Cwm Pennant and a climb up the Nantlle Ridge is one of the hidden gems of the National Park and is easily reached from the cottage. Walkers might also enjoy the newly established Welsh Coastal Path. The sections near this cottage must be among the most picturesque of this 870 mile long uninterrupted route along the welsh coastline.

The seaside town of Criccieth nearby is also the home of the famous Cadwaledrrs ice cream. The perfect compliment to a walk along the beach or a tour of the historic Criccieth castle.

The harbour town of Pwllheli is a little further along to the west. Lots of small shops, pubs and restaurants here. A little further again brings you to the very fashionable village of Abersoch wich is very popular with during the summer months. Although guests staying in Dulwyn should also consider exploring the quieter hidden sea coves along the northern edge of the peninsula.

Lots of activities in the area. Traditional pastimes such as golf, horse-riding and steam train trips. Family days out at the nearby Dwyfor Ranch Pet Farm or Glasfryn Park adventure centre. And also more breath taking attractions such as zip line rides, paint balling and mountain biking.

  1. Our party of five ‘silver seniors’ had a most enjoyable six day break at Dulwyn. The cottage was spacious, spotlessly clean, cosy, warm and comfortable throughout. It was very well equipped with everything you could think of and the ‘welcome hamper’ was the best we have seen.
    We were blest with glorious weather to enjoy the countryside and beaches which are second to none. The Llyn was at its best in the early Spring sunshine.

  2. Claudia Archer says:

    We had a lovely time at Dulwyn. It’s spacious and well equipped and has a really nice garden. The kids loved the trampolin and swing ball. The two living rooms were a real bonus especially if it rains. Thank you very much for the thoughtful welcome hamper. We would love to visit again

  3. Emma says:

    We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Dulwyn. The cottage is beautiful, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. It is set in a beautiful location and my toddler twins were unbelievably excited when they realised there is a huge trampoline in the garden – a huge plus point for us! The only minor issue we had was the wooden, slated staircase was a bit tricky for our little boys to cope with. Not a criticism but just something to bear in mind for others who have small children. Thank you for a fabulous time, we hope to return in the future.

  4. Liz Frasr says:

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dulwyn in July 2015 . The house is very comfortable and extremely well equipped with a very spacious garden . We also had the benefit of good weather and were able to renew our acquaintance with this lovely part of Wales and make some new discoveries. Lots to do and see – even for a couple of teenagers who really enjoyed the trampoline!
    If all Dioni properties are up to the standard of Dulwyn we would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family.

    Thank you

  5. Wilkinson family says:

    A very cosy cottage, spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated that would be lovely in winter – it rained a lot and was rather cold for our July holiday! Centrally located so we roamed to the end of the llyn peninsula, to Anglesey, to Snowdonia and south to Shell Island! Some great beaches around at Porth Oer, Porth Dinllaen at Morfa Nefyn, Hell’s Mouth, Black Rock Sands, Harlech and Shell Island. Lots of good ice cream shops and a great fish and chips place in Aberdaron. Our only frustration was the dodgy WiFi so we couldn’t look up local information or keep in touch with family and the limited freeview channels on the TVs.

  6. Mrs A. Lynch says:

    Our family has been very impressed by Dulwyn property during our weeks stay at the end of June.
    The house has been very well presented and clean, garden very clean and private, which was great for our daughter and dog to play in.
    On our arrival it was nice to find some local supplies, which was great surprise and came in very handy after a long drive to Wales. All rooms in the property are very spacious and beautifully decorated.
    House is also positioned only a short drive away from the beach and local restaurants and shops.
    We would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful retreat with family and friends.

  7. Haider Beatrice und Josef says:

    wir waren vom 6.6. bis 20.6.2015 in diesem wunderbaren Haus,liebevoll und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Alles im Haus vorhanden was man für einen Urlaub braucht. Küche wunderbar eingerichtet. Wunderschöner Garten, leider zu kalt um draussen zu sitzen.Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und die Zentralheizung hat uns gewärmt. Wir haben viele Ausflüge gemacht und waren Golfen. Golfplätze in nicht sehr gutem Zustand da keine Bewässerung vorhanden. Wir hatten 2 Wochen keinen Regen. Das Haus kann man uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen.

  8. John P. says:

    All in our party were very impressed with Dulwyn. Spotlessly clean and well equipped. Idyllic surroundings. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to booking in again.

  9. Eleri Williams says:

    Dulwyn is a lovely cottage – spacious and very well equipped – and located centrally for visiting the various towns and beaches of Llyn Peninsula. The kitchen has every utensil and facilities you need for a stay and the welcome pack was the best we have ever received. Some of the ‘extras’ such as flat screen TV, games table, power shower, multi fuel stove, and so on made it very special. We normally hire a cottage throughout the UK at least twice a year, and this is one of the best we’ve stayed in. We will definitely be back and have already recommended to others – including friends and family. Thank you for a lovely weekend break in a such a wonderful cottage.

  10. Ford Family says:

    We loved Dulwyn! It is a fantastic spacious house lovingly furnished and the two living rooms are a real bonus especially as we had 4 teenagers with us. We loved the log burner and the great kitchen which was superbly equipped. The welcome pack was delicious and thoughtful and the addition of fresh flowers a lovely surprise. The garden was very spacious and perfect for our dog. The weather was mostly wet when we were there, but we imagine in the summer it would be wonderful.

    We would suggest that an info pack including good pubs/restaurants and interesting places to visit would be helpful as we had never visited the area. The gardener happened to mention a few places which we would never have known about otherwise. The wifi is decidedly dodgy which is great if you want a tech free holiday, but if you need to work, find out information or have teenagers wanting to Instagram their friends then this could be a cause of frustration!

    The house is warm and welcoming after a trip into the mountains or a day on the beach and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to friends.

  11. Sue & Andy Barnes says:

    Had a brilliant week in Dulwyn, accommodation excellent, welcome pack was more than expected and very welcome. We have no complaints at all, even the weather was very kind to us. Very comfortable living areas, well equipped kitchen and extremely comfortable, cosy sitting room with log burner. Dulwyn is ideal for exploring Snowdonia and walking the Wales Coastal Path. Will definitely visit again. Thank you.

  12. Laura Nicholson says:

    We had a wonderful week at Dulwyn in September 2014.
    Lovely cottage and gardens, really well equipped and superb welcome hamper to add the cherry on the top.
    Suggestions from us though would be to have a welcome book that gives details about where to find things (and how to operate the tvs!)
    Also, if you’re bringing small children/toddlers then for peace of mind you may want to bring a baby monitor as the bedrooms are quite far apart (I imagine this would be great with teenagers though!)
    Overall, great holiday and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to friends.
