“Just stunning”
Reviewed 17 April 2015 for a stay in April 2014

This is probably the most beautiful holiday cottage we have ever stayed at. It is superbly appointed, and decorated to the highest standard. The views are gorgeous, and the surroundings wonderful. The hosts could not be more welcoming and helpful. Ysgubor Bach is a great advertisement for North Wales, we shall certainly be back.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We have stayed in many holiday cottages over the last few years and can say that for us this is probably the best! It is very comfortable and well furnished, warm and spacious.
If I was ever sentenced to a period of house arrest this is where I would want to serve my time! (Though I would miss the getting out on the Lleyn Peninsula where the beaches for my money are even better than any in the UK)!

“Fabulously located, with stunning views, a windswept garden and heaps of character.”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a fabulous stay at Ysgubor Bach this August. The house is well appointed, with everything you'd need to make a holiday with children run smoothly. (Love the hose pipe by the back door for washing down the wetsuits!). Everything is finished to a high standard and the hosts were welcoming and very approachable via email, and in person.
(The bean grinding coffee machine was a holiday hi light for me!).
We loved the area, and will be sure to return soon.

“Great Holiday House”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014
1
person found this review helpful

This property is one of the best we have stayed in. Family of 4 - plenty of space for two boys (aged 9 and 12), and a labradoodle. Very well appointed house, with everything you need. Secure outdoor space is ideal for dogs. The owners, who were very friendly, are right next door, which is great if you need them, but the layout and outdoor space of the two properties, means you have your own privacy, and look out onto fields. Its a 20-25 minute walk along country roads to the village of Abadaron, and a similar walk in the other direction to the beautiful beach of Whistling Sands. The location of Aberdaron at the end of the peninsular gives access to lovely country and coastal scenery, but means a drive of around 20 minutes to the other local villages and about 40 minutes to the nearest town. The only downside for us, was that the local beaches have restrictions for dogs, not something we are used to on the lovely coast of south east Scotland. That said, Aberdaron, is a lovely location and the house is fantastic.

“Great holiday house in amazing location, just as good as last year”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at this property exactly a year ago and couldn't wait to return with my parents as well as are two children this time. The house is ideally located above Aberdaron which is a great location providing a beach, good spar with excellent meat counter, fish n chip shops and cafés and pubs providing for most of your needs ( tho we did stock up mid week at waitrose on visit to Anglesey, and there is an Asda in Pwllheli that delivers).

The house was as excellent as last year, indeed the best holiday cottage we have stayed in. It has 4 bedrooms, one spacious with ensuite, another double, a twin and one with bunk beds. As well as the ensuite there is a further shower room and a bathroom. Downstairs a large farmhouse kitchen, useful utility room, open plan living / dining room and a conservatory. We were 4 adults and a 5 and 3 year old and there was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. We had great fun in the large garden and enjoyed meals outside on the terrace. There are views across fields to the sea beyond and we all slept v well, it was so peaceful and quiet.
Only 5 mins drive away is Whistling Sands beach with a lovely cafe serving great breakfasts and lunches. abersoch also recommend with several beaches, nice shops and lots of eating places. In an hour and a half you can be on Angelesey so perfect for a day trip further afield.

Cannot recommend highly enough and the owners Simon and Irina are very friendly and live next door which is reassuring if needed.
