“Lovely cottage, warm & cosy, modern facillities & well presented..”
Reviewed 7 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We stayed here with our two boys aged 7 & 13 just after New Year during the mad storms! We had a fantastic & relaxing break. The cottage is within walking distance of the local shops & the sea front & beach. There is a sea view from the master bedroom ! There is a huge Tesco in Porthmadog for supplies. Criccieth is peaceful & a good base from which to explore the area .. such as Mount Snowdon, Ffestinog, Carnarfon Castle, Harlech castle etc. We visited Cricceth Castle in the mad weather & the views from the top are fab .. the kids loved it even more because of the wild winds!! There are Dvds at the cottage & a playstation with a selection of games to keep the kids happy, mine took some of their own games to play. There is a cupboard with a few board games to play & a few toys .. my youngest loved trying them out. The wood burner was a definite plus once my husband learnt how to get it going! The kitchen is huge & really well equipped .. it has everything you need including an iron & ironing board! The only issue my teenage son had was the lack of WIFI for his phone at the cottage but we had a mobile broadband dongle for his laptop! Kids! Overall I would recommend the cottage, it was well presented, modern, clean & really spacious ... looks small from the outside! We will definitely be booking another short break here soon.

Stayed here with a group of friends rather than an overpriced caravan for a festival at the Haven site, what a brilliant decision that was. Wonderful property with all mod cons included. Will definitely be returning soon.

“Great property in a great location - thanks for a great stay!”
Reviewed 4 July 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Super location just up the hill from Criccieth centre. Loads of pubs and restaurants within walking distance and some great walks along the beach. Large rooms, immaculately clean, full of character and very well equipped. Very comfy beds, we made full use of the bar-be-que on the decking at the back - excellent value for money!

We are arrived at Bwthyn Mel and we instantly fell in love. It is a beautifull cottage both inside and out and we immediately felt at home. The bedrooms are all a good size but it is the large lounge and kitchen that really impress. The kids loved the Playstation(It rained on one of the days!). It is in a lovely position and only a 5-10 minute walk from the center of Criccieth which is a lovely seaside town. You must go to Cadwaladers while you are there as the ice cream is v.good!
I would recommend staying in Criccieth and definately recommend staying at Bwthyn Mel!!!
5* holiday staying in a 5* Cottage :-)
