About Mrs Samantha Watson

We live in the village and whenever we walked passed Gors-lwyd we always thought it was a beautiful cottage in a stunning location. We would love you to visit our cottage and experience the peaceful location and mountain walks for yourselves.

Mrs Samantha Watson purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Mrs Samantha Watson chose Lleyn Peninsula

We love the Llyn Peninsula, it has everything from mountains, coastline, villages and towns to adventure activities and sports. Beautiful scenic areas which are unspoilt and perfect for a quiet getaway.

What makes this cottage unique

Llithfaen is an excellent location from which to explore North Wales. Gors-lwyd cottage itself is in a beautiful location. It is surrounded by open mountain and sheep graze right outside the door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Just got back from an enjoyable four day stay at Gors-Lwyd, the peaceful location with both mountain and sea views was perfect, the cottage itself was of high standard and the finishing touches and extra's that are provided made the stay a very pleasurable one. If I decide to return to the area again I would try to stay here again, meanwhile I will be recommending the cottage to others, Thanks very much." — S D, 06 Sep 2013



"We stayed at this lovely cottage last week. The cottage had everything we needed. It was in a perfect location, and the kids had a fantastic time as there was a different beach each day. "At night we used the barbecue and looked out onto the sea view! perfect!" — Mr & Mrs W, 29 Jul 2013

Wonderfully quiet location, cosy, very clean and with everything you could wish in a cottage

  • 5 of 5

Sam's cottage has been prepared with great care and attention to detail. It's obvious from the moment you walk in that she has a good understanding of what most people would expect in a holiday rental. The house is traditional and beautifully furnished with good quality white goods and clear and easy to understand instructions on how to use everything.We felt immediately at home. The location is ideal for walking from the house to explore the surrounding area as well as for getting in the car and discovering some of the great places on the Lleyn peninsula. We had a most enjoyable week there.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage with fantastic views and a fantastic base for visiting the Llyn peninsular.

We had the most relaxing time and were blessed with near perfect blue sky...in March!

Sam had thought of everything even down to the lovely welcome basket of goodies.

Would highly recommend the cottage and would love to return.

Excellent

This was the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. As others have stated, the photos don't do it justice. The cottage had everything that we needed and more, and is in a stunning location for fantastic walks. Sam has thought of everything and our children were delighted with the extras just for them. We would highly recommend this property and hope to return ourselves.

Superb holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had very good family stay in Sam's cottage. This charming cottage is fully equipped for a family stay with games, books, Blue-Ray films, large kitchen to cook relax (AGA style cooker) and a big garden/terrace with barbecue. We surely recommend you this lovely situated cottage.

Fantastic location, great quality and a friendly welcome!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the cottage for a few days and loved every minute. The location of the cottage is amazing, right under a mountain, with sea views and well positioned to explore the Llyn Peninsula.

The photos of the cottage really don't do it justice, it is so much nicer in real life - tastefully furnished with high quality finishes, immaculately clean and equipped with everything a holiday-maker might need, and a few things you didn't know you needed!

Sam was a great host, with good communication in the run up to the stay, a personal welcome on the day, the provision of a lovely welcome hamper of local food and drink, and the offer of being on hand throughout our stay if we needed anything. I prefer not to take hosts up on this type of offer but did need to ask for help, to which she replied quickly and very helpfully.

We are looking forward to returning again soon and can't recommend this cottage highly enough. Thanks Sam xx
