  • “We had a lovely week at Morfin, and thought the house was so charming and welcoming.”

    The living room is particularly attractive and cosy, and all the bedrooms are very comfortable with good quality mattresses. The top room has magnificent views over sea and mountains, and is fitted out to a wonderfully high spec, including its wet room ensuite. ...

    The living room is particularly attractive and cosy, and all the bedrooms are very comfortable with good quality mattresses. The top room has magnificent views over sea and mountains, and is fitted out to a wonderfully high spec, including its wet room ensuite. The kitchen is well equipped and cheerful. As a dog owner I did wonder before the holiday where I could find a grassy place for my dog, but was happy to find a grassy alleyway at the end of the garden which my dog was happy to use. The house is ideally located for getting to the beach and the castle, and there was a really good vegan cafe just a few steps away, plus an excellent fish and chip shop. It's well situated too for visiting the Lleyn Peninsula, Snowdonia and the Rhinogs. We would love to return. The house has such a lovely welcoming feel!

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments. It is refreshing to communicate with someone who appreciates Morfin, a comfortable well equipped Victorian house with stunning views and a connection to Lloyd George. We are delighted that you felt the welcoming vibe and would like to return. Owner relations

The property

Such a comfy holiday house, with lovely views towards Moel Y Gest.

Once the home of former Prime Minister David Lloyd George, who lived at Morfin from the age of 16 for ten years.

As a solicitor he had his first office in what is now the dining room! "Morfin is in a great location, just a short walk to the beach, Ice cream parlour and restaurants, you can't help but enjoy staying in Criccieth all year round" Within a short walk from Morfin you can enjoy Criccieth's interesting individual shops, galleries, good restaurants and cafes.

One of the best fish and chip shops in North Wales is just up the road, as is the famous Cadwalader's Ice Cream.

Morfin is peaceful, calm and relaxing, with soft colours and interesting bits and bobs.

I love the lamp in the dining room and the David Lloyd George corner on the landing where you can sit and soak up the view or quietly read a book. A comfy Victorian house in a delightful Victorian seaside town.

About the location

CRICCIETH

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.

Note: Although garden is enclosed it is not dog proof for small dogs as gaps between gates quite big and the wall is low
Note: Infants to be included in party numbers (max 6)
