About Virginia Hoddinott

My husband came to Abersoch when he was a toddler and enjoyed many fantastic family holidays there growing up. When we married he introduced me to Abersoch and we decided it would be the perfect place to take our own children. We have had the house for about 15 years and have had some magical and treasured holidays with family and friends over the recent years.

Virginia Hoddinott purchased this house in 2000

What makes this house unique

Gwynfa House is an extremely relaxing place to holiday as it has been kitted out especially for families. Everything is walkable to and from, so we park the car and don't usually use it unless going surfing to Hells Mouth. We love spending the day on the beach and walking back in the late afternoon for a shower and glass of wine!

Great family holiday

This is a fabulous house in a beautiful location. It was perfect for a large family weekend get away and the children loved the space and the garden! Will definitely be staying here again!

Best house in Abersoch

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location. Warm. Clean. Bright. With gorgeous bedding and tasteful decoration in a very spacious, comfortable house which feels instantly like home. Smack bang between the village and main beach. There really is no point in looking anywhere else.

Great spacious house in central village location

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at Gwynfa for 16 years. The house is perfect for 2 families with lovely spacious bedrooms and 2 bathrooms giving everyone space. The 3 Lounge areas and spacious dining room are perfect for relaxing/ socialising. There is a well equipped kitchen and spacious utility. The garden is secure with seating areas and access to the beach or village.

Abersoch itself is a great village with lots of small shops, eating areas and bars. There are 3 beaches within walking distance and beach cafes to reward walks along the beach. The house has a beach hut with a great location and is enjoyable even in the rain!

We are looking back to our next stay in 2018.

Fabulous family friendly holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here a number of times now with friends and family and wouldn't hesitate to recommend. The location is perfect allowing older kids some freedom to browse the shops knowing they are only minutes away from the house. The beach is on the doorstep and the beach hut a real bonus. Lots of choices of places to eat close by. All the rooms are lovely and comfortable, furniture and bedding all high standard. Each time we visit we notice something new or different. We will definitely be back.

Fantastic family holiday home. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Gwynfa for several years. It is a well equipped, spacious and clean house in a perfect location between the main Abersoch beach and village. With a lovely garden and outside eating area and plenty of indoor space for families to spread out in, the house can cope with all weathers! The newly refurbished beach hut is a huge bonus.

Perfect for special annual family get-together

  • 5 of 5

Gwynfa House is perfect for a large family holiday and get-together in an ideal location, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Abersoch village whilst being only a couple of minutes walk from the main beach, harbour and shops.We have enjoyed staying here since my great-nephews and great-nieces were babies and are all excitedly looking forward to returning next year for our 14th magical visit!

The house has a wonderfully happy atmosphere and character providing spacious accommodation in which 13 or 14 people can relax comfortably. Outside has the advantage of a secluded south facing large garden, BBQ and outside dining and parking areas.

The house benefits from a cosy kitchen (with Aga), extra utility with large fridge freezer and an extra drinks fridge, a brilliantly sized dining room and family sitting rooms for young ones and oldies alike to enjoy various entertainment together (or separately!), including Wifi and Sky.

Virginia who owns the house is always a joy to talk to; we would certainly recommend staying at this property.
