“Did exactly what it said it would!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I, along with my wife, daughter and two year old grandson, visited Sea Spray for a long weekend which took in the May Bank Holiday. Heavens opened as we unloaded the car and we got soaked but the property itself was warm, dry and welcoming. The layout of the accommodation is good, particularly downstairs, and it has everything you are likely to need.

It's very handy for the beach, golf, boats and steam engines (which our grandson thoroughly enjoyed)

The owners have provided comprehensive notes about the property (including the bin day and where to place it) and also a lot of detail about the area and its history. They also had a huge stack of leaflets of places to visit which made useful reading when planning the next day.

For provisions there is a Spar within walking distance, along with a chippie. A short drive away there is Porthmadog itself with Tesco, Lidl & Aldi.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and cannot rate it highly enough, but please don't tell everyone as we may wish to book again............

“Cannot wait to come back”
Reviewed 26 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We wanted a family weekend away to ward off the back to work blues after the fun and games of the Christmas period. We were happy to find Sea Spray Cottage was available even though it was well and truly out of season.

We arrived in the early evening to find the cottage clean, warm and comfortable.
The living area is tastefully decorated and well appointed with comfortable furnishings, a thoroughly pleasant place to spend a cold wet winters evening and space enough for the kids to play without getting in the way.
There is a small conservatory to the rear which I imagine would be a lovely place to relax and enjoy the afternoon / evening sunshine during the summer months. Unfortunately for us we went in early February which meant it was a little chilly for us to enjoy the conservatory and garden.
The kitchen and dining area is fantastic. Plenty of space to prepare and cook a family meal using the quality pots and pans and every imaginable utensil available for use.
The three bedrooms are all of reasonable size considering the overall size of the cottage, one double, one twin and the smallest with bunk beds. Again all tastefully decorated and very clean and comfortable. All of the rooms have plenty of storage for clothes and belongings etc.
The bathroom although small affords plenty of space for its intended use. We were very happy to find both a good sized bath as well as an electric shower. As with other parts of the cottage all spotlessly clean and tidy.

Location
Sea Spray cottage is ideally located far enough out of Porthmadog town to be quite and peaceful, but just a few minutes easy drive to all of the tourist attractions in and around Porthmadog area. The fantastic Black Rock sands beach can be walked to in about ten minutes. There is also a very well stocked shop, chip shop and pub all within very easy walking.

This was our second family visit to Sea Spray cottage having come here last February during the school half term. We enjoyed our visits so much we have just booked to return for a week in the summer holidays.

“A real 'home from home'”
Reviewed 23 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This is one of the best cottages we have stayed in and in a great quiet location, we loved this property. Sea Spray was perfect accommodation for our family, very clean and tidy. This cottage is very well equipped and clearly careful consideration has been taken for all the items provided by the owners to make your stay as perfect as possible. The conservatory is an ideal spot to read the papers and drink coffee as it gets sun most of the day. The enclosed patio is safe for children to play in. The wifi Internet access was quicker than home and kept teenagers in touch, it was accessible from any point in the house. The location was great, within walking distance of Black Rock Sands which has a massive sandy beach, shallow warm water and amazing caves. You can take the car on the beach for a £4 charge, well worth it, no more carrying bags especially if you have children! Portmadog is a short drive away where you'll find Tesco, shops, cafes and restaurants. Sea Spray was an excellent place to stay ideal for all age groups. We would certainly recommend this ‘Home from Home” with its clean comfortable well equipped accommodation and we will definitely be staying here again.

We booked an extended weekend break with less than a weeks notice. No problem at all from the owner with whom communications were frequent and friendly. The cottage was easy to find and get into thanks to good instructions received prior to our stay. On arrival on a cold February evening we were glad to find the Cottage heated and comfortable from the very start. The children (13 & 7) soon claimed their rooms and settled in very quickly. The Cottage is well furnished, modern and very very well equipped indeed. The kitchen is wonderful, full of good quality pots, pans and every utensil you could possibly need. The location is great, just 3 or 4 minutes drive from Porthmadog or a short walk to the nearest shops and beach. We would have no hesitation in booking Sea Spray Cottage again as we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

“everything & more than we expected”
Reviewed 31 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

3 generations of my family stayed at this holiday cottage recently including2 teenagers & an 8 year old. The cottage was great, well equipped and even had the holiday bucket spade & fishing net what every 8 year old needs and the wi fi for teenagers. It was great having the option of day holiday passes at the adjacent haven holiday site but in all honesty these facilities were only used once for the children. The location of the cottage was great for the beach, the outside area to the rear of the cottage was a real sun trap and we had the use of the BBQ regularly and the lovely sun loungers supplied ( yes we were lucky to have great weather most of the time!!). The grassed area at the side of the cottage was brilliant for our 8 year old to practice his footballing and there were plenty of walks for our dogs.The proximity to porthmadog & surrounding countryside and beaches was also excellent.

This is one of the best cottages I’ve stayed in and in a great location. The beach at Blackrock Sands is perfect for walking the dogs on. There is no need to get the car out everything is within walking distance. The cottage now has a 32" TV and Wi-Fi is available. I’ve already booked to go back in June – it’s perfect…
