    "The perfect house for our family celebration."
    Barbara ‐ 24 Apr 2018
    "Gwynedd House was a superb choice for a large family gathering. The location is stunning and very close to all the amenities and attractions of the area. The house itself is has everything one could need, from a superbly equipped kitchen, excellent dining and lounge areas and a beautiful conservatory leading onto the extensive gardens. We were a group of 15 adults and 7 children and we all fitted in with space to spare. The children loved the garden area and The adults were spoilt for choice between table tennis, pool or tennis Maureen, our host, made us most welcome. We will most definitely book again."

    "An ideal house for our party of Golfers! Gwynedd houses a games room , indoor and outdoor games that are really fun... a lot of privacy and seperate rooms with bathrooms. A real plus and excellent hosting by Maureen, who cooked great breakfast."

    "A group of 20 of us visited Gwynedd House in November 2015 for my mum's 60th birthday. The house was fantastic, and perfect for us. We had arranged for a local supermarket to delivery our shopping, and Maureen, the owner, had kindly put everything away for us before we arrived. The house is located a 10 minute walk away from the local village, where there is a local store. Bigger supermarkets are within a 15 minute drive and the house is within easy driving distance of Criccieth. There are many walks from the grounds. For children, there are plenty of games and dvds, as well as a table tennis table. There is also 2 lovely ponies in the grounds! We had a perfect weekend, and wouldn't hesitate to return"

    "We had a lovely holiday at Gwynedd House in Criccieth last week-end. The house was lovely, everything was clean and comfortable, as well as being well equipped. We also enjoyed the lovely meal they cooked for us on the Saturday evening. Even the weather was kind to us enabling us to enjoy our beautiful surroundings. My family and I all enjoyed a wonderful, happy and relaxed week-end and it was a memorable celebration of my special birthday. Please convey my thanks to Maureen and her team in case I cannot get through to her."
