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.

    Wonderful cottage in superb location, the owners have obviously dedicated themselves to the exquisite restoration of the buildings & gardens it is amazing to see all they have achieved. We appreciated the lovely friendly welcome we received & were also blessed with several days of lovely weather. We are keen outdoor enthusiasts & enjoy walking in the hills & along the coastline a combination to lift the spirits. We are also partial to a good meal & a few drinks and were spoilt for choice around Criccieth. We especially liked the Goat Inn & the Poachers restaurant both of which were excellent. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage & would like to return in the not to distant future. Doreen & Rob

    Gell cottage is a true gem..comfortable ,cosy, well equipped and spotless in wonderful surroundings. The friendly owners were on site if you needed anything but never intrusive. The area is rich with historic Castles .. Gardens.. Scenic train rides.. little quiet beaches and also some very large ones . Criccieth has lots of places to eat and drink , and some gift shops too. There are at least 3 big supermarkets just a few miles away in Portmadoc and plenty of smaller shops to browse. An excellent holiday destination.

    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.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; There are several large supermarkets nearby but if you arrive late there are 2 independents in Criccieth.

    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.
