“Lovely cottage with stunning views”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just returned from a week staying at Gorwel. There were 7 of us in total including 2 small children and the cottage had everything that we needed and more. We were particularly impressed by the summer house in the garden which had toys for the children. Two of the party were sailing in championships at Pwllheli Sailing Club and so the rest of us were able to take advantage of the fantastic views of the sailing area from the patios or, if the weather was not so good, from the windows in the lounge. The cottage is very well equipped - there was nothing that we needed that we could not find - and the bottle of wine and Bara Brith left for us by Barrie and Joan were most welcome. They are the perfect hosts, full of useful information and available if needed and but invisible if not! We would certainly return to Gorwel if we were visiting the area again.

“The perfect home from home”
Reviewed 19 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Another lovely stay at gorwel for 3 generations of our family.
The cottage is spacious, yet cosy, with beautiful gardens and the added bonus of a lovely summer house. Beautifully clean and tidy.
There is everything you need kitchen wise, and more, with a fabulous BBQ if the Welsh weather allows :)
There are plenty of books, films and games to entertain, plus some children's toys, and plenty of information for surrounding attractions, plus the closed off lane at the bottom of the garden is a lovely place to have a walk.
The road noise from the nearby main road did seem a little more apparent this year, but wasn't intrusive.

Thank you once again - we will definitely be back again!

“Well equipped, spacious cottage in stunning location.”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a great week. The cottage was very well equipped, clean, warm and comfortable.
Wonderful views to the sea, walking distance to the beach and small railway station.
Plenty of space for everyone and our young granddaughter loved the gardens and summer house. Barrie made us very welcome. Thank you.

“A cosy family Christmas”
Reviewed 29 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Gorwel Cottage was a wonderful find and has everything and more ... very well equipped, clean and comfortable, with a gorgeous sea view. Barrie made us welcome and we felt we were home from home as we celebrated Christmas together. When the weather was bad we stayed in and kept warm around the log fire and when it was clear and dry we drove around the beautiful scenic surrounding area.
Barrie and Joan are to be congratulated on paying so much attention to detail as nothing was lacking and the Prosecco and Bara Brith was very much appreciated too !
As a family we'd love to return to Gorwel !

“Excellent cottage in fantastic location”
Reviewed 23 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This excellent cottage accommodates 8 people so is ideal for two families holidaying together. It has great facilities, comfortable beds and is very clean and well maintained. There are fantastic sea views from the kitchen and huge living room and the wonderful beach at Aberech sands is only 5 minutes walk away. For those sunny days try Whistling sands and there are lots of castles to explore within reasonable distances such as Caernarfon and Harlech or Criccieth just down the road. Portmerion is also nearby as well as Abersoch. Our teenage boys have loved coming here year on year since they were toddlers. Highly recommend it.
