What a pleasure it was to spend a whole week in this fantastic cottage.
First off let me say that the owners contacted, checked and provided in advance so much great information (arrival details, location etc.) That I could not help but be impressed and happy with all the arrangements.
This gorgeous cottage is set off a quiet road, in lots of space and no-one around.
Perfect, quiet , very peaceful and relaxing.
With ample parking (enough for most probably 3 cars), you drive up and it looks as good as all the photos show.
A lovely single storey cottage, plenty of room, plenty of space.
A wonderful garden, yes the property is set among this large garden surrounded by all the trees with plenty of space to explore and great areas to relax, eat or just pass some time away if you are staying at the cottage.
Due to the weather being perfect (Sunny and hot all week) we never had a need to try out the fire in the main room. But it was a great room to sit, relax and chill at the end of the evening.
Everything we needed was available in the Cottage.
Now as great as the cottage is and it's perfect quiet location.
The other fantastic thing about staying at Upper Lodge was how close it was to places to go in the area.
Pwllheli was 10 minutes away, Abersoch and its great beaches and Marina (watersports) under 20 minutes. Criccieth and it Castle under 25 minutes. Not forgetting (and we will never forget) the amazing beaches just 10 minutes to the North at Morfa Nefyn. Really beautiful bay.
And these times are not rush at 70 mph to get to the locations.
They are pleasant gentle rides along the coast.
So take your time, relax and enjoy getting to these places as much as relaxing when you get to them.
Plenty to see and plenty to do, if you do want to travel out from the cottage.
And a welcoming great cottage to stay in even if you don't fancy travelling out as much.
We were really torn between sitting in the garden relaxing in the sun, or down to the beach.
But the amazing local beaches in the sunshine just won out, knowing we got to relax in the evening in the peace and quite of Upper Lodge.
Please do remember to take bottled water! as due to how the water is sourced at the cottage the tap water isn't drinkable. This is not a problem as long as you do a little planning. But with plenty of local places to shop, it is very easy to pick some up.
Really hope we get the chance again to come back and visit / stay.
Great place, great location and a perfect way to unwind, relax and switch off from the general hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Thanks for letting us stay at Upper Lodge.
