    “The cottage was situated in an ideal central location to enable you to explore a large part of what Gwynedd had to offer and it was surprisingly large.”

    The cottage was advertised as dog friendly but the signs and literature in the property didn’t make you feel that it was. There was an issue with a leak prior to our arrival that the owner texted us about but overall we had a pleasant stay.

The property

Criccieth 1.6 miles.

Bodfan is located in the picturesque community of Llanystumdwy, not far from the well-known Welsh town of Criccieth.

This dog-friendly, stone-fronted cottage has two pleasant bedrooms, a small patio, and a great location near the breath-taking Llyn Peninsula coast and the attractions of Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park; it's the ideal base from which to discover North Wales's many attractions with your partner, a small family, or a group of friends.

Step through the front door and into your temporary dwelling to find the homely sitting room warmed by the crackle of a woodburning stove.

Put your feet up and relax before you head to the fully-equipped kitchen to whip up some delicious meals for your family and friends to enjoy at the dining table.

After a long day of sightseeing, head upstairs to the bathroom for a quick rinse, then retire to one of two bedrooms (a king-size or a double) with your choice of bedding.

During the day , there is a pub nearby , where you can also raise a glass to your well-deserved holiday.

You could also take the short trip to Criccieth, where you can buy groceries, see the impressive waterside ruins of Criccieth Castle, and spend the day relaxing on Criccieth Beach, which has stunning views of the ocean.

Traveling a short distance will bring you to Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, where you can go walking, hiking, and cycling, or you can try something more extreme like zip lining across a quarry at Zip World or going kayaking or paddle boarding on Llyn Padarn; there is something for everyone here.

Bodfan has this and much more in store for you.
