An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above..


Families will love relaxing in the first floor lounge with huge TV and comfy sofas, beautifully furnished and equipped throughout.

These detached, converted barns (refs OK7 and OK8) are located in the hills between Pentrefelin and Criccieth, with spectacular views out to sea. From the garden, guests can enjoy wonderful 360 degree views of Cardigan Bay, together with a picturesque backdrop of the Snowdonia Mountain range. These 500-year-old cottages, once owned by Henry VIII, have been lovingly restored by the owners to provide beautiful holiday accommodation. Little Barn (OK8) is equipped with a hot tub for exclusive use, which is ideally positioned to enjoy the stunning views over Cardigan Bay and the mountains. These are idyllic cosy and romantic cottages. This is an ideal location for walkers, bird watchers and golfers, with many activities just on the doorstep, including horse riding, fishing, climbing and sailing, being located just 10 minutes from Pwllheli Marina and having a spectacular golf course and fishing lake within walking distance from the properties. These properties are also popular with artists, due to the spectacular views and abundance of light. With many lovely walks from the doorstep, as well as the beaches at Criccieth and Black Rock Sands at Morfa Bychan all within easy reach. Criccieth has a good selection of restaurants and pubs, and Criccieth Castle, standing proud over the bay, is well worth a visit. In the other direction is Porthmadog, home to the famous Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland railways. Portmeirion is close by, and the mountain ranges of northern Snowdonia, the village of Llanberis and the Llyn Peninsula are also within easy reach. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

    Lovely location with stunning views, paddock was a bonus as it meant we could let our dog have a good run in a secure area. Cottage had everything we needed. Lovely local beaches just a short drive away. Great central location for exploring the Lynn Peninsula. Whilst in cottage we felt miles from anywhere, but actually just a few minutes by car from amenities - perfect! Thank you

    Fantastic place to relax and explore we had a great time . The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. It had everything we needed for a long weekend break . Great views across open countryside from the kitchen window. A great base from which to tour the north coast of Wales. We had a lovely stay and hope to return next year. Chris and Anna

    You cannot beat the scenery from the Old Cow Shed. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable and is perfect for the dogs too. It is hard to get good accommodation that takes three dogs, the local beaches are easily accessible and it is only a ten minute drive to shops and restaurants. Would recommend and would definitely stay again.

    A great cottage and really well equipped. Lovely location which is off the beaten track yet still close to beaches and local towns. You will not be disappointed if you book the Old Cow Sheds.

    Our second holiday here. It has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable, relaxing holiday. There is a big paddock where we can let the dogs run around without worry too.

    Our second visit! We love this place. A wonderful quiet retreat with spectacular views across mountains and beaches. Beautifully decorated and very well kitted out, you have to kick us out at the end of the week. We will be back!
