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.

“Super location”
Reviewed 30 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

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.

“Lovely, homely cottage, pet friendly & surrounded by beautiful contryside”
Reviewed 13 March 2017 for a stay in November 2016

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!

“Needs TLC”
Reviewed 29 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

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.

I'm very sorry this guests stay wasn't as they expected.
I texted/emailed them many days before their stay with the contact details they provided to explain I couldn't be there to meet them being on holiday myself.
My phone number is provided so I could have easily have dealt with issues raised which most fair minded folk will know is the fairest thing to do first before taking to online reviewing.
I don't really feel the need to go into detail to refute their claims as my previous wonderful guests and their honest reviews will know that most of this review is an exaggeration. My best wishes to all.
