Single storey barn conversion just a mile from a sandy beach. Excellent base for exploring the Llyn Peninsula.

This detached, single-storey stone barn conversion, adjacent to the owner’s house, has shared use of the delightful 1-acre garden and is situated just a mile from the glorious sandy beach and excellent choice of cafes and restaurants in Criccieth. This is an excellent location for exploring the beautiful Llyn Peninsula, with its coastal footpath and winding country lanes that walkers, cyclists and bird watchers love. Situated on a rocky outcrop overlooking the sea, Criccieth Castle is well worth a visit, as are the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland steam railways in nearby Porthmadog. Not far away are the stunning mountains of Snowdonia. Golf and horse riding nearby. Shop and pub 1 mile.

    Gell cottage is a perfect place to chill out and relax. There are a number of nice places to eat and drink locally but they are a drive away. There are some beautiful walks and places to visit on the peninsula. The milk and welsh cakes on arrival were a nice touch but there isn't anywhere nearby that you could get emergency food for the day you arrive particularly at the weekend so come prepared. It didn't matter about the rain as the area is so picturesque and we had come prepared with walking kit and water proofs.

    Gell Cottage is beautiful, one of the best appointed cottages we have ever stayed in, in over 30 years of cottages holidays. Despite some bad weather, we were warm and comfortable. The location was good, quiet and secluded, but close to the facilities of Criccieth and Porthmadog, Snowdonia and the coast.

    Gell Cottage was a lovely characterful retreat in attractive countryside and only a few minutes drive from the coast at Criccieth where good restaurants and amenities are available. We were easily able to tour the towns, castles and coasts from the location passing through the wonderful countryside of the Snowdonia area The cottage has been renovated to a high standard and has everything needed for a relaxing break. It is a credit to its owners who made us very welcome.

    The best cottage we have ever hired in the UK. A real home from home.

    The cottage is lovely but a king size bed, more comfortable chairs and being able to open the en-suite bathroom window (it would be extremely hot in the summer) would make it so much better. Also some wi-fi would be an advantage. The property is also right next to a quite busy road with lots of noise, obviously this cannot be avoided but it did have an impact on the tranquillity of the area.

    Beautiful cottage, spotlessly clean & lovely furnishings. Very welcoming but not intrusive hosts. We had a fantastic stay.

    A lovely cottage perfectly situated for exploring this beautiful part of Wales. Lots of pretty towns, beaches and attractions nearby, not least the stunning Snowdonia National Park.

    Our third visit to Gell Cottage, still the best holiday cottage we have stayed in.
