Such a Wonderful place to stay, so many places to explore and it was so peaceful and quiet. The views from the house are magnificent such a delight to wake up to.
One of the key requirements for our holidays is that's it's reasonably remote with lots of space for the dogs to run round, views to look at while drinking coffee and reading a book. This was perfect. Off the aberdaron abersoch road so great access for exploring the llyn. The house was large with plenty of space for the family, a little tired but had everything you need and log burner was a real bonus.
Douglas made us feel welcome and any teething problems were dealt with quickly.
I would definitely recommend this to friends and family.
Stayed here last November with my husband, two children and our dog. What a lovely time we had, the cottage is very roomy, but comfortable and warm. Loved the wood burning stove and plenty of wood was provided. The views were amazing, it was a short walk to the most breath taking beach (which we had to ourselves).
My children often ask when we are returning to the 'creepy cottage'....they had a fantastic time here, loved the little tree house out front.
Hoping to book again soon!
We came as we needed a break after dealing illness etc . Two families fitted easily log burner brill and loads of wood The owner and his son are great and helped loads if needed which is rare do not go if you want the Hilton hotel see previous comment but if you want to get away from it all and let you're kids have freedom to explore this is the place I'm going back asap if fit thank you so much
We stayed a week at Tyn y Parc and had very mixed views during what was a great holiday despite our disappointment with the property.
We hardly received an auspicious start, we had arrived after nightfall and were told by the son that the keys were, 'in the door' - this wasn't a great welcome and we had no introduction to the house, the appliances, how the electrics work or anything else. We had to find all this out ourselves. During the whole of our stay, including our departure, the owner did not make an appearance and we didn't receive an explanation for his absence. We met the son on a few occasions, and he was pleasant enough, but we had no idea if he was acting as the owner's agent or not.
Firstly the positives, Tyn y Parc (House) is in a beautiful spot, a 10 minute walk from the beach and surrounded by fine woodland with many good walks and fabulous interests. The site itself is fairly pleasant, if not a bit unkempt, and there are nice gardens and surroundings. The cottage certainly retains its original character and is a solid enough building with a nice feel to it, overall. We had some nice evenings around the fire tucked up in the front room, and the view, from within, across the fields to Porth Neigwl we found hugely relaxing.
Now, the bits that could (and should) be improved. The house needed cleaning in many areas and whilst it was evident that a 'cursory' clean had taken place there was a huge amount of dust and grime in many of the social areas that showed a lack of attention to detail and thoroughness. It took us a long time to get it anywhere near hygienic. The furniture was old and tired, and in many cases seemed to be incongruent or of very poor quality. The pool table had old (odd) socks covering the pockets, which pretty much summed things up. The room interiors lacked cohesion, with a jumble of nick-nacks and prints that didn't really show any continuity or theme, again there was a feeling of not caring or any reasonable effort being made to create a welcome fit for holiday makers. The bedrooms were generally stuffed with bunkbeds, probably to try and boost the occupancy but just left the rooms looking cluttered. Anyone bringing 11 people to Tyn y Parc would find themselves very cramped indeed. The bathroom was not clean, tiles were loose around the bath, the immersion heater took two hours to fill 1/2 a bath and we had one towel for the week. The house was festooned with, I felt, obtrusive and irritating notices about different things, all signed off by the (absent) owner and these seemed either patronising or authoritarian and could have been more elegantly covered in a nice guidebook rather than be in guest's faces. There was no WIFI whatsoever, despite claims to the contrary.
Having said all that, we paid a reasonable price for a half term break - and I believe with some effort (and a little investment) and attention to detail it could and should be so much better and a real draw for people wanting to spend time in this lovely part of Wales.
If the owner had introduced himself, I certainly would have discussed these things with him, but in the absence of providing any other route for feedback I feel I do need to share these thoughts via the website.
