“Fabulous family get away”
Reviewed 23 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We got lost trying to find the house as it is up a fairly long track, but once we arrived it was full of Character. Our family was a party of 7 and the down-stairs area was perfectly set out and suitable to suit the needs for all of the family members, As with some of the other reviews I also want point out the small drawback (which did not ruin our break): Which was that there was only one toilet with a shower unit (which is a bit dated) upstairs, luckily we were all family, But this may be a little off putting for a group who are not familiar with each other. Also given the number of us, a dishwasher would have also provided assistance. Over all the break was great and the situation of the accommodation was great. The shortcut to the beach & town made it all very accessible for my 85 year old Nana. Over all if there was an additional toilet the property would be 10/10

“I wouldn't write Home about it...”
Reviewed 22 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We were a bit disappointed in this one really. Despite the impression from the photographs of a secluded hideaway, the cottage is very much overlooked by some town houses/apartments to one side.

Only when we asked for the arrival details were we told of the requirement to bring our own towels, bed sheets, pillow cases and quilt covers. I wouldn't expect to have to pack bed linen for a cottage so I was surprised that this information wasn't offered until prompted only days before our arrival. This proved more inconvenient as some of our party were holidaying elsewhere in Wales prior to this booking at a cottage that did not ask for bed linen.

The contact person on arrival was not contactable as the provided number repeatedly went to voicemail. This was a frustration as the oven/grill does not work and was not remedied during our stay. Not good.

One toilet is not enough, especially when it is in the same room as the one shower. A room with a just a bath and sink in it is senseless. Why not an additional shower and toilet?

One of the double beds is a very small double, only visible in daylight hours as there was no functioning light in that room.

If this house was at full occupancy, it would be difficult.

After an eventful journey it was lovely to arrive and be greeted by the friendly owners. The house is lovely a mixture of olde world charm and homeliness. The rooms are large enough and spaced out in a way where you can mingle or enjoy privacy. 2 very small drawbacks which it must be said did not detract from the holiday were having only one toilet with a shower unit in it upstairs although there is another bathroom with bath and sink but minus toilet also upstairs There were 8 staying but with 3 other family members staying in separate accommodation and visiting so the age ranged from 2yrs to 83yrs. And secondly no dishwasher :( which we mentioned to the owners who suggested this was being looked into :) Everything else from the cleanliness the range of things provided including plastic beach crockery to the owners was superb. We had a leak from a pipe in the kitchen And this was dealt with immediately. The owners even provided an extra guitar when they knew we were a musical family. We really enjoyed this holiday home and we have tried a few in Aber over the last 30years and recommend it to anyone who loves being in Abersoch but slightly away from the town centre as it has the added advantage of being only a short walk away from the centre but close to all the beaches. Letting young teenagers have a bit of independence. The garden is equally lovely with different areas to sit and relax and the lovely terrace where early morning coffee and evening drinks can be consumed and the great joy of not having to find a parking space in Aber in the height of the season. An extra plus was no wifi so teenagers had to enjoy themselves by joining in and adults could totally get away from work and other distractions. There is free wifi in places in the village if desperate!!! Fabulous place, thanks, totally recommend except for the weeks when we want to go!!!

“Superb Holiday brilliant for families”

We booked 2 weeks in June with our extended family coming and going over that period. The owners, Jalna and Richard couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful, providing us with everything we needed. The location is perfect, with only a short walk to the beach and 10 minutes walk into Abersochs shops bars and restaurants. There are extensive gardens where the kid s could play safely and we enjoyed a couple of barbecues in peace and seclusion. I couldn't rate it higher !
Thanks again guys

We spent two weeks at Mellinsoch and couldn't have wished for a nicer holiday. Great location within easy walking distance to the town and beaches. The house is large with lots of character and original features. Lovely garden with plenty of space for the children to play and many an evening was spent around the BBQ!!.

It was well equipped, we really did have everything we needed, there were even logs provided for the fire in the evenings.

We will definitely be going back next year and would recommend to all!!
