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.

    Dulwyn is a fabulous cottage in such an idyllic location. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated and having two lounges is a great idea. The welcome hamper is amazing and greatly appreciated after our journey.
    The location is between Criccieth and Pwhelli, not more than 15 minutes to either place. Beach is really nice and dog friendly at Pwhelli. Lovely dog friendly ice cream place in Criccieth and fabulous Thai restaurant that does takeaway food.
    The only negative I would have to say about the cottage is the garden. It’s huge, wraps around the cottage and is very pretty but it’s not fully enclosed for a small dog who likes to wander off and explore. Even the front gate onto the lane has a gap that a small dog could get under and the metal fencing between the garden and next doors garden has wide gaps too.
    I was disappointed as I had asked questions beforehand and luckily had taken our garden extension lead but felt unhappy that I couldn’t just open the door and let my dog out on his own and had to keep him harnessed all week.

    We had such a wonderful time at Dulwyn cottage, we didn’t want to leave! We have been coming to the area for around 14 years and stayed in many different cottages and this was definitely one of our favourites!
    It was lovely to receive a welcome pack on arrival! 🙂
    It was great to see our older two children (13 and 12) off their devices and playing in the garden and our 21 month old little girl loving it too!
    There is plenty of space for a family of five like ours (plus dog. Our dog is adopted and reactive so the peace and quiet was a wonderful holiday for her). Having two living rooms was great at times if we wanted to watch different things/play games etc but we also enjoyed a movie night in the larger living room where we were all comfortable and had plenty of space.
    The bedrooms were lovely and the beds were very comfortable.
    The area is gorgeous and a great spot for going off and visiting our favourite places. We went to Portmeirion, Beddgelert (beautiful, and my children have always loved the story of Gelert),Ty Coch Inn, (we stayed in the flat above the Pub there and have been going back ever since), I even had a very quick swim in the sea! We had pub meals in the Saracen’s Head Beddgelert, The Australia in Porthmadog, Pen Y Gwryd Hotel and Ty Coch Inn, all great food!
    If we had more time I would have liked to get to Harlech and Abersoch.
    Can’t wait for our next holiday in Wales!

  3. Jane Mills says:

    Fantastic cottage which was tastefully furnished and fully equipped. Everything was spotlessly clean and the welcome hamper was much appreciated. Unfortunately the weather was wet and windy for the whole of our stay but that didn’t spoil our enjoyment as it was really cosy in the cottage. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing retreat.

    We (family of 4 plus 1 dog) have just returned from the most amazing holiday in this stunning area of Wales, had the most amazing summer weather and LOVED the cottage!
    Want to go back right now!
    The cottage and garden do look amazing on these photos already – they still don’t do it justice. It is even better in real and the garden is even (much!) bigger than we thought – it goes all the way around the cottage. Lots of space in any direction.
    It is a bit more remote (secluded!) than expected, but that was just fine and SO peaceful. The only sounds we heard were pheasants and the odd cow or horse. Beautiful!
    I am a bit picky when it comes to cleanliness and equipment in the kitchen, we have rented all over the place – and this was ONE OF THE BEST accomodations ever! Spotless! Everything provided that you could possibly need PLUS a wonderful surprise when we arrived. Wait and see!
    In addition to all of that the landlady was wonderful! Her running a lovely café in Criccieth helped when we needed to order a birthday cake for our younger one celebrating her birthday while we were in the cottage. It was delicious! Also try her bread and cakes! Yummy!
    We stayed for a full fortnight as we were in desperate need of a proper holiday – and that was still too short for all the things you can do while you’re there.
    AMAZING beaches (especially Harlech! and right near Criccieth), great hiking (up Snowdon, along the coast path, circular route from/to Criccieth etc), water sports, horse riding, impressive castles, lovely restaurants (try Dylan’s!)…There was so much else to do that we just couldn’t fit in. I guess we will have to come back at some point (if it wasn’t for the long drive from Germany…). We even went to Liverpool for a day trip. Great!!
    ENJOY!!!! You won’t regret booking here!

  5. Sophia says:

    Fantastic cottage, wonderful garden, and soooo peaceful. We were there in the heatwave as well, so ate outside (two different patio areas depending on time of day!) for every meal.
    You have thought of absolutely everything in the cottage, so much space to spread out, and internet connection excellent.
    Easy striking distance to castles, beaches, mountains (if it hadn’t been a heatwave!).
    Thank you!

  6. Hazel Bird says:

    I can only reiterate the comments above about this cottage, it was spotlessly clean and fully equipped. No need to take washing up liquid, sponges, dishcloths or cleaning products, they are there for you to use; I was impressed. We did have a problem with the boiler but Sian sorted it out for us. It was an inconvenience not to have running hot water but these things happen, don’t they even at home lol.

    One thing I would like to say is that the sat nav told us we had reached our destination at the crossroads of the lane and we thought ah, where is the cottage – continue up the lane and you will find Dulwyn on the right handside in a secluded position and within a beautiful large mature garden. Totally enclosed and safe for your dog/dogs. The utility room is an added bonus for storing dog leads/food etc.,

    I would have no hesitation in booking this cottage again it is a gem of a find in beautiful part of Wales.

    Visited Llanbedrog beach, twice because we loved it and the facilities that are there. We also went to Coed Cymaues to photograph the waterfalls, superb if you are a photographer and if you like scenery try Porthor and Porthdillaen and, of course, Criccieth itself where you will find the fabulous Cadwaladers, dog friendly and you can buy your furbaby their own frozen yoghurt if you wish.

    Tip: Read the reviews they are all accurate.

  7. Sue Harrison says:

    Lovely, well equipped cottage in a beautiful part of North Wales, we couldn’t fault it. We had to deal with the owner Sian a couple of times over issues of the previous guests and she was very helpful and sorted it all out. Highly recommend this cottage

  8. This spacious cottage really is a credit to the owners and cleaner – beautifully clean, well maintained, lots of thoughtful touches, comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen and everything is easy to use. The cottage was warm when we arrived and a quality welcome pack and a vase of daffodils were waiting for us. Peaceful location.
    We loved staying in Dulwyn and hope to return again. Would definitely recommend.

  9. Vicki says:

    We have just returned from a great week away in what was a beautiful secluded cottage. Our two dogs loved the house which was immaculate. The treats on arrival were great as well. Only thing was Wi-Fi was patchy through the house so if you like internet access bring Wi-Fi extenders. Would definitely return!!

  10. Lynne says:

    We have just returned from a wonderful week at Dulwyn, the welcome hamper was so thoughtful and I loved the two vases of fresh flowers it made our stay feel so homely. The cottage was beautiful, spotlessly clean and so well equipped too there is nothing the kitchen is short of.
    The gardens were very relaxing and spacious ideal for dogs and children, there is a a football net, trampoline and the swing ball went down well with our family. We were lucky with the weather and ate breakfast outside several times.
    Our grown up children were taking their boat so we were wondering how much room there would be for three vehicles and a boat but we managed to get them all in and there was also a hose to wash the boat down too, it worked perfectly.
    The house is down quiet country roads only 12 minutes from Criccieth, we felt it was a great spot as it was so central for any part of the Lyn Peninsula.
    We enjoyed quality time with our family having lovely meals, wine and then games and cards to finish our evenings off ( it felt a bit like Christmas when the charades started!)
    I read comments in the cottage about there being no dining room but there is a very large dining table under the stairs so we just moved the coffee table and rug in the larger lounge and carried it through, it was perfect.
    We have been visiting Criccieth for years and can recommend a few restaurants: Poachers in Criccieth, Dylan’s on the front too but our favourite is ‘The Square’ in Tremadoc we went last week and had one of the nicest meals we’ve had in a long time we would highly recommend it.
    Criccieth has a great butchers and a Bakery that makes fantastic Chelsea buns something we always call for on our way home!
    Anybody new to the area you need to visit Cadwaladers Ice cream parlour in Criccieth their ice cream is to die for!
    Thank you for a lovely holiday we will be back next year, it must be good even the children and their partners want to come too!
