The cottage was plenty big enough and had sufficient suitable amenities for our family. There was plenty of walking outside the property with spectacular views on offer. Definitely a place I would return to.

Fantastic house with amazing views. The pictures do not do this house or the views justice. The house had everything you could think of to make your stay a very good one. Very clean and the location was great. Close to visit the local area and the beaches were beautiful. Dog friendly and the next door neighbour was a lovely guy. The local people were very friendly and I would highly recommend the villa.

The location was great in the middle of Harlech. The house was very clean and tidy and had a superb view, even with the crane! Having 3 toilets was great. All very nice, we would go again, in fact already looked for a week in July, but unfortunately it has already been booked - you will have to be quick for a nice house like this one.

The cottage was wonderful. The villa has a lovely situation at the top of a hill overlooking Harlech Castle and the shoreline, was lovely waking up to that each day. We couldn't have asked for better accommodation or a better holiday!

The house was perfect for a family holiday, we were also fortunate with the perfect weather and the town of Harlech had plenty of facilities for us. The views from the house were spectacular as were the sunsets.

This house was absolutely lovely. It is in walking distance from the lovely town and castle, excellent restaurants and friendly neighbours. The beach is huge, sandy and deserted, with the mountains in the background.The beach slopes very gently so seemed quite safe and half is dog free the other half dog friendly, so ideal for both. Would thoroughly recommend.

The Villa was ideally placed to enjoy a variety of activities for adults and children: local walking, cycling, driving through Snowdonia, beaches, outdoor dining and of course the Castle. Although it was not part of the package, we were delighted with the weather - sunshine every day and not a drop of rain all week. All in all, a most enjoyable holiday.

The views from the Villa were amazing, especially from the lounge area which overlooked the castle, the beach, the bay and across the bay to Criccieth. The accommodation itself could not be improved. All the rooms were beautifully furnished, and it had a perfect location, with shops, cafes, restaurants and a pub all within walking distance.

The views from the property are spectacular. The property is in close proximity to Harlech town centre, where we found some lovely restaurants and cafe's. The beach nearby is huge, you would need at least a couple of hours to walk the length of it, so great for lively dogs and children!

The property was outstanding, extremely clean and had excellent facilities in the home.

The Villa is in a superb location and Harlech is a lovely, picturesque, small yet busy town. The scenery around the area and the views were stunning; there are wonderful beaches both at Harlech and further down the coast.

Enjoyed our weeks stay here in May. Great views and sunsets across the sea to the Lleyn peninsular and over the castle. Steep drive and walk up tot he house from the main road, no problem for us but some may find it hard work. 20 minutes walk to the beach. Would have been nice to have a bit more comfortable garden furniture to enjoy the views. Refurbished nicely but missing a few finishing touches, somewhere for the shower gel etc in the showers would have helped. Shower / bath rooms pretty small but did the job. We all found the beds uncomfortable, much too soft for us, bad back all week! But that's probably personal choice Great views from most rooms, Wi-Fi was intermittent upstairs

What a fantastic place. The house was very well equipped and everything was very well thought out. The views are to die for and the pictures don't do justice to the views.The house was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Everything was very good quality and I can't rate this property highly enough. We took our dog and he loved it too. There are so many days out from this property and the area is stunning. The neighbour was very welcoming and waved us off every morning when we went out . Will be booking again and if you get the weather you don't need to go abroad. Loved it all !!!!

Lovely villa and area, we were here over new years for five days. Six adults, two babies and two dogs with plenty of room. There is a great little pub located a few minutes walk away with brilliant place to eat out as well. The pictures do not do the villa justice, brilliant place to stay!

This beautiful property is up a fairly steep hill from the lovely village of Harlech, hence the fitness requirement - it's very good for the calf muscles, but would be a bit of a pain if you had to get the car out every time you wanted a pint of milk. The amenities are splendid, the garden/patio area lovely for sitting out - you can find a sunny spot all day, and the views across to Porthmadog and Criccieth are wonderful - even the odd rainy day has its points of interest. The local pub does good, reasonably priced food and the locals are very friendly - we were lucky to have a group of travelling musicians roll up one night and a great time was had by all. We'd definitely hope to visit again.

We can not fault this accommodation. Beautifully decorated and furnished,extremely spacious and everything you could possibly need is provided. As for the views, I don't think you could get better! From the large picture window in the lounge you can see Harlech castle (particularly beautiful when it is lit up at night) and right across the bay to Criccieth. You are within walking distance of a pub, some beautiful little shops - the icecream shop and tea shop in the courtyard are unmissable! There is a bit of a "heart in mouth" drive up the narrow lane to the property but it is worth it and certainly wouldn't put us off visiting again.,
