About Jane C Evans

We are a family of four living and working on our farm, fishery and café. My husband Tom has lived on the farm all his life and we decided to convert one of the outbuildings to a holiday let. The farm has been in the family for many generations, and Tom is the great grandson of the famous Welsh statesman David Lloyd George. We are happy to either leave you in peace to enjoy your stay or to help if you need any advice on where to visit, walk etc. Just ask!

Why Jane C Evans chose Criccieth

From the start we wanted to make sure that the cottage was the kind of place we would like to come on holiday to ourselves, so we made a special effort to create a warm, comfortable home from home with good quality furnishings and facilities.

What makes this cottage unique

The location is superb, within 20 minutes drive you can be at the foot of Snowdon in one direction, exploring the stunning Lleyn Peninsula in another direction or the less well known but beautiful rugged southern Snowdonia mountain range of the Rhinogs. Within easy reach of two seaside towns with plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops but still in a peaceful rural spot. Plenty of nice walks from the doorstep.
