Gardeners Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Gardeners Cottage is situated next to the Hall on the Talhenbont Hall Country Estate near to Criccieth in North Wales. With one double bedroom and two twins as well as a family bathroom, this cottage can sleep six people. The cottage also contains a well-equipped fitted kitchen, a sitting room with an open fire. Outside the cottage there is a patio area with furniture and a BBQ as well as plenty of off road parking. There are also fishing, tennis and woodland walks included with this cottage. With a number of other cottages on site making it ideal for large groups of over thirty people, Gardeners Cottage is a wonderful holiday home for anyone wishing to explore the delights of North Wales.

Set in a truly idyllic position is the 100-acre estate of Talhenbont, situated in the beautiful unspoiled countryside of the Lleyn Peninsula. Within this small scattering of immaculately renovated cottages are many interesting activities for the guests, such as outdoor chess, access to an all-weather tennis court, pet animals, which welcome a friendly feeding and cuddle, as well as a bird house, cheerfully known as 'The Quackery'. Outside the estate are other exciting attractions such as a mile and a half stretch of river - perfect for walks along the bank and with areas safe enough for children to play or paddle. Also in the region are a selection of castles, beaches and golf courses, not to mention local restaurants and inns which provide an extensive range of succulent dishes.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

Great for kids, we had a fantastic time. The owners were friendly and accommodating.

The proprietors bent over backwards to help us! On our arrival we had problems with the car and the owner came to collect us and settled us in to Gardeners Cottage. The next day the owners couldn't do enough to help us, they went out of their way to take us to the nearby town, helped with phone calls to sort out car, and much much more! They were absolutely fantastic, and we would recommend anyone and everyone to go try it out!

One week was not sufficient to explore this beautiful estate - a glorious place to visit for a dog owner with access to all areas. 'Meg' had the time of her life and so did we. Can't wait to return!

A superb location. The gardens of the estate were spectacular. Excellent walks around the river and woodlands and the kids had great fun watching the birds in the Quackery.

Talhenbont Hall was a wonderful place for a family holiday. The grounds, birds and play area were great for the kids and enabled them to freely play and have fun. The grounds are really good for adults too and it is great to stay somewhere that was a destination in itself. The owners were really helpful too.

Excellent holiday home for my grandchildren - the owners took our 7 year old to help feed the ducks and birds etc - he loved this and was rewarded with eggs. Good tennis court, and lovely grounds for the children.
Mr Price

Having booked at short notice, we were made most welcome by Gill when we arrived at this truly fabulous residence. Set in 70 acres of manicured gardens, river, lake and woodland, it has spectacular views and amazing walks through the woods which have some really quirky and funny twists and turns. We were made to feel like part of the family and had many happy times sharing a joke, a drink and a chat with Gill, Paul, Gabriel, Brian and some of the other guests. It is a truly fabulous place to stay and a great base to visit Cricket, Nefyn and Porthmadog with Black rock sands.

Very relaxed. Owner and staff very friendly and did an enormous amount to make sure we were at home. House just right to fill with small children. Birds, animals and gardens loved by all of us. Keen to return.
Mr Roads

Super, super property, lovely location. Thoroughly recommended for all normal people - people expecting Conran furnishing do not apply. Great for kids and tennis fans.
Mrs Heath

The owner was pleasant and accommodationg as ever. Our dog and daughter loved the grounds and such beautiful local walks are always a winner!
Mrs Chrystal

The setting: amazing place, you have to see it to believe it. Really peaceful, unusual and beautiful. The use of the tennis court - we played almost every day. Having a built in BBQ outside on the patio was good too. It was cold enough on the Sunday to light the log fire in the lounge - a real novelty that made it memorable.
