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.

    We’ve just arrived home after a fantastic week at Dulwyn and are missing it already! It really is an absolutely stunning house, exactly as described. We arrived after a very long journey (due to traffic problems) to a spotless house and a very generous (and by far the best) welcome hamper we’ve ever seen! A lovely warm Welsh welcome, lovely surprise and very much appreciated. It’s always a real privilege to stay in such good quality accommodation where your pets are welcome too, our three elderly Labradors loved the garden (which is huge!) and watching the world go by from the gate, and the lovely little touches like throws for them to join you on the couch make all the difference. Dog owners may also like to know there’s a large field attached to the property that you have access to, we didn’t brave it as there was a herd in there and our dogs aren’t too steady around livestock, but always handy to know. Not sure if the cows are always there. The house is perfectly located, its so, so peaceful, yet just ten minutes from Criccieth and Pwhelli for exploring and for provisions. Sian was super helpful and very welcoming, always responding quickly to our queries and always really pleasant. We love Dulwyn and can’t wait to return. Fantastic holiday accommodation and such a hidden gem. Thanks Sian and family and thanks Dioni, so glad we found you!

    We stayed at Dulwyn for a week in May 2017. We loved it.

    Lovely cottage, fab gardens – great for dogs, great location in between mountains and coast. The hedgerows in the area are stunning – full of wild flowers – great for wildlife.

    The cottage owner was fantastic – really helpful.The welcome pack was really good, and having stayed in loads of cottages I have to say this was the cleanest we have ever stopped in – it was spotless.

    The only downside was that the wifi didn’t work for us for the whole week, but we got by, and the owner did everything she could to help. I think they are getting BT fibre installed soon, so that should solve it.

    It was a lovely cottage, clean, cosy and well equipped. In a great location for exploring the Llyn peninsular and Snowdonia. Plenty of space for all the family and a nice quiet room for the dog to sleep in front of the fire.

  4. Steve says:

    The cottage was wonderful and well equipped for my family’s needs. Location was perfect. Would definitely go back again. Best family holiday we’ve ever had

  5. Sion Edwards says:

    Lovely weekend at Dulwyn with the family celebrating the wife’s birthday. The cottage was cosy with plenty of space. All of us had a wonderful time and will for sure come again. The welcome pack was great too!

    Had an amazing time at Dulwyn, cottage was beautiful, scenery amazing, unfortunately, the same couldn’t be said for the weather.
    The owners were brilliant, they really couldn’t do enough, we plan on coming back again for sure, and would recommend this place to anybody, you’ll love it!!!

  8. Georgina Bifulco says:

    Fabulous stay with 5 good friends to see in the New Year. The cottage is extremely well equipped, cosy, comfortable and by the end of the weekend we didn’t want to leave! Beautiful rural location but within reach of lovely towns and beaches and of course the national park. Would love to re-visit.

  9. Julie says:

    Lovely cottage, cosy and plenty of space. Great welcome pack too. Would stay again.

    Amazing cottage.
    Although we had very mixed weather, we had a fabulous week at Dulwyn. Revisited all our favourite beaches & walks. A big thank you to Sian for the goodies, flowers & wine on our arrival. The cottage has everything & more that you need. The kitchen is a cooks dream, we didn’t get to explore all of the garden ( which is huge ) as very wet and soggy. But that didn’t stop us sitting out & enjoying it. Highly recommend Dulwyn as one of the best we have stayed at & we has stayed in a lot. As usual a big thanks to the staff at Dioni, helpful & efficient as always.

    We have had a terrific holiday at Dulwyn. The house is beautiful. It really is home to home. Very well appointed and equipped. Spotlessly clean. Great welcome pack and lovely fresh flowers. The garden is fab. Larger than expected our dog really loved it. We cannot fault this property and highly recommend it. We hope to return. Special thanks to Sian from Frank and Annemaria.

  12. Sue & Neil Mellor says:

    Dulwyn is one of the best places we have ever stayed in. Very attractive, relaxing and comfortable with everything you could wish for. Agree with previous comments about the wi-fi but it worked fine most of the time and it wasn’t a major issue. The lovely garden is a bonus, and the cottage, while well placed for exploring lots of attractions close by, is very peaceful. Superb welcome pack and the fresh flowers were a nice touch. We were newcomers to Dioni, and if this is an indication of the standard of its properties, we will definitely book with the company again. Mixed weather didn’t detract from a great holiday, either. Many thanks.
