We spent a lovely long weekend here over new year and it was beautiful. The cottage is gorgeous and exactly (if not nicer!) as it is in the pictures! It is spotlessly clean, very stylish, modern and comfortable... my Family didn't want to come home! The owners have impeccable taste, (they have thought of everything) and the kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need. The sea view from the front bedroom is just fab and there are sheep and ponies in the field opposite the cottage across the lane. It is so peaceful too.
I couldn't recommend this place enough :-)))
What a great place to spend Christmas - absolutely beautiful view over Criccieth - kids loved it. They even have a Nespresso Machine which was great for a coffee addict like me. The cottage was spotless as always when we arrived. Kitchen is really spacious and well equiped. Will definitely be booking again soon.
Amazing cottage, amazing facilities! A picturesque area with a great beach within walking distance! A quaint village, we had a fantastic time, would highly recommend for relaxing break!! Or base for exploring!! Will definitely visit again, again and again!!!
Second time visit to this wonderfully decorated, exceptionally comfortable cottage, all amenities catered for!!! The beds are so comfortable you don't want to get out of!! But you have to to explore the wonderful areas!! Cricceith is a quint village and the beach is ace!! Good time had by all !!! Will be back xx
You always wonder, "Will it be as nice as it is in the pictures? Will it live up to expectations?" You needn't worry at Bwthyn Mel. It is everything and more!
My husband and I booked Bwthyn Mel for a long weekend with my brother and his wife. Upon initial contact via TripAdvisor, the owners responded within hours. They were open and up front about everything, and the booking was made quickly with no fuss. Easy.
We worried about finding the place. The directions provided by the owners were accurate and easy to follow. We worried about making entry. No problems, straight forward and easy. We worried about how to use the cable, wifi, kitchen equipment, etc. Needn't have, all explained in the literature sent prior to our arrival and also laid out in a book at the house. Easy.
The lounge was large, furnished with two leather sofas and scatter cushions galore. It was cozy and comfortable and perfect in the evenings for relaxing after long days out exploring the area.
The bedrooms were lovely. Lovely furnishings and really comfortable beds. The bathroom ... wow! We all commented on its size and joked that we could all use one part of it at the same time! (Note - we didn't.). Bed linen and bath towels provided.
We only cooked toast in the kitchen (yes, we girls had a holiday, too!), but had we felt inspired to whip up a culinary delight we would have had no problems in doing it. Everything needed was there. Bonus - washing up liquid was provided along with kitchen roll, tea towels, and even a pint of milk to get you started along with a loaf of bara brith Nice touch!
The area around the house is quiet and rural (we heard sheep at night) although the High Street is just down the road. Criccieth is a pretty little town. Wish we'd had more time to explore it but did manage dinner one night at Dylan's on the waterfront. Worth a visit if only for the view! The food was fine, the place lively and loud. Fine dining? Probably not but still fun. Did I mention the view? The High Street has everything you need, including a couple of convenience stores for milk and bread, etc.
Would we return to Bwthyn Mel? In a heartbeat! This is probably the best holiday home experience we've had, and we've had many. The house is so well set up, and the owners have obviously given great thought and care to it and to the holiday makers visiting it.
