The cottage is ideally situated for the local towns of Porthmadog and Criccieth and if you take a dog, you can just walk out of the door up the lane into the beautiful Welsh fresh air for your morning walkies. My mother and I stayed for a week and we had a double bedroom and bathroom each. Beds are comfortable with lovely cosy fluffy duvets. The kitchen diner is very well equipped and spotlessly clean with everything you would need including a dishwasher and microwave. The lounge is spacious and cosy with a log fire if the evenings get chilly. One of the strongest features of the cottage is the garden. We went in April and could sit out early evening but I would think mid Summer it would be gorgeous to have supper and a chilled glass out there. All in all it was one of the best holiday cottages I've stayed in and I would definitely go back.
My partner and I and our two dogs have stayed in this cottage twice. We've just booked for a third time in March 2016. It has to be the most convenient Cottage that we've ever rented. To be honest it's the sort of place we'd buy.It's got a decent appointed kitchen and utility room with the sort of kit we've got at home,Comfortable Beds, two bathrooms with a decent sized shower cubicle to accommodate 6 foot plus, Broadband Wifi. Gas Central Heating providing a warm ambient temperature that negates the use of the wood burner !. Food shopping is very close at Porthmadog. If you visit in September there is a bonus of free Blackberries growing in the lane too.!!. Walks from the house are several. You could walk up the main road towards Criccieth where you find a pay as catch trout fishery and Cafe. Turn left from the cottage up the lane through a couple of gates , go underneath the pylon and you come to the Caernarfon Road. Suitable for good sturdy shoes !!. Locate the Village telephone Kiosk and post box, about 50 metres to the right across the road is a tarmac footpath that leads about 1 mile to a disused church. In the 12 th Century the Church was on an island surrounded by the sea only reached at low tide by a causeway. Totally love the area and the cottage and cannot wait to return.
Twll y Cae is a real delight, a quirky cottage with an interesting history and a delightful garden. The cottage is the best equipped we have ever stayed in, with lots of thoughtful touches from Ann the lovely owner. The beds and settees are all very comfortable and inviting, and the unusual kitchen layout is very sociable and works well. (There is even a Rangemaster cooker for those who are inclined to cook on their holiday.) We all enjoyed sitting in the lush garden which the dogs loved. My only criticism of the cottage is that time moved too quickly and we had to leave well before we wanted to! Wholeheartedly recommended. We are definitely joining the long list of previous visitors who want to live here.
Excellent location for coast and mountains. Very well equipped, warm and comfortable. The owner thought of everything to make our stay just perfect.
