Fantastic location for beautiful beach

  • 4 of 5

The house is very functional, contains everything you need for home from home, even dog bowls and a dog crate!

The home is spacious we had 4 adults and one child in our group and it was very comfortable. Take a few coat hangers, there is a handy devise for hanging clothes in the smaller bedroom, coat hangers provided in wardrobe in double room are not moveable. Beds very comfortable, great nights sleep! Extra duvet and blanket available.

Superb location quick walk to beach, lovely quiet area.

The owners of the property very attentive and accommodating, great communication, Alan offered us early access and a later leaving time, which we have never had before. So a good family feel. We would stay here again and rent the joining house for our whole family group.

Great Property in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the property which was clean and well-kept. Great location in a small village near the beach and Porthmadog - but within very easy reach of Snowdonia with all it's attractions. We have no complaints at all.

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

Marvelous accommodation in a great setting. Arrived to find place so clean you could quite literally have eaten off the floors! Beds were so comfortable though after walking up moel-y-gest for first time in 40 years and long walks along the splendid Black Rock Sands would probably have slept soundly on a wooden board. First beach and mountain for Sammy the dog who has loved his stay. Place is equipped with everything you could possibly want - even to extent of dog bowls! Cannot speak highly enough and will definitely be back.

Capel Nazareth at Morfa Bychan

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and neat cottage. Conviienent location for visiting all of Snowdoia. Close to Port Merion, Harlech, Caernarfon and Snowdon. Easy access to beach and numerous walks from vicinity of cottage. For three of us lots of space.

Nice cottage, good location, everything works

  • 4 of 5

Property was clean & tidy. Wi-Fi & TV worked well.

Kitchen was very dark - could use more light there once sun has gone down. Everything worked in the kitchen (though didn't try the washing machine)

Nice views of golf course & Moel-Y-Gest.

Electricity is a bit expensive, especially the hot water.

Property is easily big enough for 6 people

Fine private car park (shared with next door cottage)

Owner very helpful - arranged to have a watch which had been left behind posted to us.

I'd happily go again

Owner's Response: It is great when a guest writes in their review that they would stay with us again, thank you. Glad you found everything clean and tidy and that you made use of the unlimited broadband. We have tried to make our holiday let as green as possible, it is very well insulated and we have used low energy light bulbs where ever possible, these bulbs do take a little longer to reach full brightness. We do not charge our guests the full price of the electricity used but by charging something we can keep the rental price down and maintain our green ethos. The plenty of off road parking is a definite bonus. I was happy to return your watch to you and you are welcome back anytime to admire the views again. All the best Alan

Two lovely cottages

  • 5 of 5

I booked to stay at both the cottages with my family and from the initial enquiry I was very impressed at the quick response and communication from Alan. We have stayed nearby before and I noticed the cottages last year and thought they looked lovely and we were not disappointed.

The cottages were modern, well designed and fully stocked with everything we needed. They were very clean and no equipment was broken. There were 7 adults and 6 children and there was plenty of room for us all. The cottages are ideally placed and not far to the beach, local shop and chippy and right opposite the golf course which has a fab walk up the mountain just behind. We were all so impressed that we have already booked for next year. Had a wonderful time and can highly recommend these properties. Thanks so much Alan

Owner's Response: Thank you Liz for your glowing review. We can not get better feedback than when a guest re books another stay with us. We also feel that the cottages are well designed to be modern and hopefully have everything in them that a guest could want. We look forward to you staying with us again and hopefully for many years to come. Regards Alan

Activity and Interests


Black Rocks Sands beach is a 5-10 minute walk down "beach road". Or you drive on the main road to the beach where you can also park your car free of charge.


The town of Portmadog is a 5 minute drive away.


A very good local shop ( Spar ) is 300 meters up the road. The post office is located in side. A chip shop is next to the Spar along with a shop selling bit and bobs for a day on the beach.
