The wooden farm style kitchen table and chairs along with the inglenook, rocking chair and sofa make it feel cosy and inviting. Lots of space and all modern appliances will make catering for the group a pleasure whilst on holiday! A separate utility room come boot room houses a washing machine and dryer.

Leading off from the kitchen is your quintessential farmhouse sitting room. A huge inglenook fireplace with log fire takes centre stage with lovely leather sofas and french windows looking out onto the beautiful views that surround the cottage. There is a TV in here so it’s certainly a lovely place to relax in the evening.

The cottage has a wonderful private garden which looks out onto the incredible landscape beyond; mountains in one direction and the sea in the other. There is plenty of space to eat outside and if you have children in the mix, they will have lots of fun exploring the area.

In terms of what there is to do in the area, you are really well positioned to explore both the north coast and the Llyn Peninsula. Pwllheli is your nearest town. A lovely harbour market town – plenty of lovely places to eat and drink and if you are into sailing, Plas Heli would be on your list of things to do.

Nearby are the Bear Grylls Survival School and Glasfryn Parc. Two great places to visit for wakeboarding, SUP, karting and lots of other great outdoor activities. There are also lots of beautiful beaches and hidden coves along the north side of the Llyn Peninsula and Abersoch is further up where of course you’ll find the popular village where surfers flock throughout the summer. Criccieth is 10 minutes away from where the award-winning Dylan’s restaurant is located and certainly worth the effort to visit, especially on a summer’s day.

Heading in towards the mountains, Caernarfon is only a 15 minutes drive away where you will find of course the castle and a lovely town where the new harbour has some great restaurants, cafes and bars. From here, a 20 minute drive will take you into the Snowdonia villages and towns where you can enjoy the mountains and lakes.

    We had a great time at Maes-Y-Cwm, the property is fantastic, really well decorated and equipped and has great views, lovely garden areas and the place is so peaceful.
    The owner, Elaine, couldn’t have been more helpful and I have to say we have stayed in many places over the years and she was the most communicative, accommodating and lovely host that we have ever encountered. Also thanks to Dioni, they seem to be a really well run and genuine company that we will continue to use, thanks to all.

    We’re just back from a wonderful week at this gorgeous house. It’s just stunning, is beautifully decorated and has everything we needed. The scenery is breathtaking and the hosts were very helpful. Can’t recommend highly enough!! Will be back

    A huge thank you to Elaine and Arwel for making our family Christmas so special. From Arwel kindly lighting the fire for our arrival, the special touch’s of supplying and decorating the beautiful Christmas tree and making the whole house so cosy and inviting. The cottage and location is stunning, with views and walks to match. All the little touches like the welcoming pack and bottle of bubbles were hugely appreciated. I can honestly say the best ever holiday rental cottage I have stayed in. Thank you

    A very small and hopefully helpful comment, the eye level kitchen cupboard door closing mechanism that holds the door open, seems to release on its own accord. Unfortunately one of the glasses got broken because of this. Our apologies. Please let us know what the cost is to replace it. Thank you

    Lovely house and gardens. Well equipped and located. We had a lovely time with beaches, food and places to visit all easily accessible. Hosts were very supportive when we couldn’t work things out (like heating). Welcome pack was very welcome after a long journey. Highly recommended.

  5. Ivan Hill says:

    Our holiday could not have been better. The cottage is beautiful, thick carpets, fluffy white towels, comfortable beds, everything provided to cater for a wonderful holiday.
    It is quite secluded with plenty of space to roam and enjoy. On Arwel the owners advice, we walked on a warm evening to a lovely spot to enjoy the sunset.
    It’s well worth visiting Yr Eifi car park about 10 minutes away to walk down to Caffi Meinir which takes about 25 minutes. The views are stunning, on the day we went the sea was a deep blue and the sun was shining, it reminded us of the Mediterranean: a little bit of paradise!
