    “We were disappointed at the amount of damp on the walls in the living room downstairs at the front in particular and other odd patches.”

    when we first went in on the Friday, there was a distinct damp smell and we felt we needed to keep doors and windows open as much as possible all over the weekend. The big window in the back bedroom could have done with a good clean on the outside.

    - Kate, May 2022

    Thank you so much for your feedback. The walls at the front are not actually damp, but salt stains where the damp has been sucked out of the walls, from recent maintenance work. I appreciate your concern about how bad the walls appear and we have a builder going to the cottage in the near future to make good any damage. The cottage is over 160 years old and so unfortunately, there will sometimes be "odd smells" and water ingress. There has also been an awful amount of rain over the last few months which hasn't helped matters. I hope other than these concerns you managed to enjoy your stay. Property Owner

The property

Situated in the pretty stone village of Llanystumdwy, linked closely to David Lloyd George, is Pogle's Wood.

A two bedroom stone cottage and once part of the Lloyd George Estate, Pogle's Wood lies close to the seaside towns of Criccieth and Pwllheli.

Being only a short drive from the heart of Snowdonia, this cottage is an ideal base to tour the Llyn peninsula, where sandy beaches and magical villages can be discovered.

While for the more energetic, exhilarating mountain walks can be enjoyed.

Pogle's Wood has been furnished to welcome you and your pets as we understand pets are part of the family and enjoy a holiday too.

The lounge has a comfortable settee and easy chairs to relax in, a TV with excellent signal reception, open fire with a back boiler, for which we will provide some logs etc, to complement the electric heating and Wi-Fi.

For more formal evenings there is a dining table which comfortably seats four adults. The kitchen is stocked with a range of electrical appliances to make it a real home from home.

A welcome pack of milk, tea, coffee, sugar etc will be waiting for you after your journey.

Outside is an open, lawned garden, for the dogs to stretch their legs and have a sniff around. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, each with a double bed and storage space, more than adequate for holiday clothes. The bathroom has a curved cubicle with an electric shower and complementing sink and toilet, which has been recently refurbished.

Locally, there are a number of signposted walks and the Lloyd George history to uncover, an excellent local bus service from early in the morning to late at night and a regular train service from Criccieth.

And at the end of the day, the dog friendly and community run Tafarn y Plu pub, is literally on the doorstep!!

Pogles Wood is a wonderful place from which to explore Wales, at any time of year.

About the location


Porthmadog 5 miles; Portmeirion 8 miles; Abersoch 15 miles.

Often described as the 'Pearl of Wales on the shores of Snowdonia’, this delightful seaside town is situated just 5 miles from Porthmadog. The town’s 13th century castle perches majestically on a rocky outcrop, dominating the skyline and offering superb views of Tremadog Bay and the Snowdonia mountains. Watersports enthusiasts will be delighted by the two beaches, whilst walkers and bikers are spoilt for choice by the proximity of the beautiful Snowdonia National Park. Stroll along the beaches, watch porpoises playing in the surf, or relax in the various pubs, restaurants and tea rooms, sampling the famous Cadwalader’s ice cream. Further afield, attractions such as Portmeirion’s wonderful Italianate gardens, the Ffestiniog railway in Porthmadog, Harlech Castle, Caernarfon Castle and the beautiful beaches and renowned golf courses of the Llyn Peninsula are all within an easy drive.
