Hear what some of our recent guests had to say...


A fantastic stay to celebrate a birthday with our extended family. The house is perfectly laid out, the garden beautiful and the presence of a bar area is fantastic for cocktails. We will more than likely be back!

What a wonderful place to stay! Lovely house and garden. Maureen and Arwel gave us a warm welcome. It's in a great spot, an easy walk into Criccieth for local beach, shops and pubs, and a short car journey to spectacular beaches further around the coast. Some great walks from the house and more demanding mountain ones a little further away. There are castles and the steam railway. Really everything for a great family holiday! Many thanks!

Wow, what a lovely house. We booked this for our multi-generational family holiday and what a great choice. The communal areas are large enough for the number of guests. We spent much of the in-house time in the conservatory dining/lounge and games area – very bright and airy. There is a very large Freeview TV in the original lounge. Bedrooms are all equally well furnished and most have en-suite bathrooms. Outside in the grounds, tennis and croquet were our most popular activities. The views from the house of the gardens and coast are lovely. We had mixed weather (stormy for the first couple of days) but we enjoyed spending time in the house. Locally, the hill behind the house and the walk down to Criccieth are easy treks. Notable visits were the Ffestiniog Railway and Portmeirion. One evening, at the recommendation of Maureen, we ate out at The Goat Inn, Tafarn Tr Afr – really great quality meals all round (book in advance). Many thanks to the owners Maureen and Arwel for a lovely house/holiday.

Enjoyed the most memorable week here in July 2023 for my husband's special birthday celebrations with family from 4 generations.

Was warmly welcomed by Maureen and her husband.

Grounds and house are spacious and well maintained. Impressive rooms, each very unique and beautifully decorated. Clean, well equipped kitchen. Stunning views from house and spectacular panaromic view a short walk from the house.

Plenty to do whatever the weather. Tennis courts and table tennis were well used.  Only a 15 minute walk from the beach but also enjoyed, a short drive away, stunning views at Llanbedrog and spotted seals at Porthdinlaen.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would love to come back.

Thank you SO much for hosting this weekend for Alan and his friends. We had such an amazing time; the house was actually so much more than we expected and absolutely perfect!
We had such a lovely relaxing time and to have everything to hand was so reassuring. The BBQ on Saturday was fabulous. Thank you so much!
We had a fantastic day on Sunday with a trip to the beach at Porth Dinllaen, which is one of my favorites, and the weather couldn’t have been better. We then climber up to the top of Moel Ednyfed and saw those amazing views.
I know we forgot to write in the visitors book, so if you want any reviews on Trip Advisor or elsewhere we’d be happy to promote Mynydd Ednyfed.

The family cannot thank you and your husband enough for the amazing weekend we spent in your beautiful house.
Mum said it was the best weekend she has ever had and one she’ll never forget. Everything was perfect, from the accommodation, the location, the variety of games, to the most fantastic food on both evenings. Truly delicious and beautifully presented. Our heartfelt thanks to you both and all your hardworking staff. The icing on the cake was you all singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to mum in Welsh! Everyone, without exception, absolutely loved their time with you in Criccieth. Thank you so very much from us all.

Just back from an incredible week at the house. We were welcomed by Maureen and Arwel and given a tour, which was needed due to the size of the place! The weather wasn’t the best for a couple of days, but that allowed us to enjoy all the house had to offer. From film nights in the lounge, to pool tournaments in the conservatory, the 20 guests were never bored. Thank you for letting us stay the week, and making our wedding unforgettable.

There is nothing to dislike!
It is a wonderful house to rent with friends. Perfect location in every way. Fabulous kitchen and the owners are very accommodating and so helpful.
It’s a must visit.

We hired Mynydd Ednyfed for a week, so we could stay with family and friends after our wedding.We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The house is very comfortable with large living areas, a fantastic bar and a very well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms were all very comfortable and each has a different character. We made good use of the table tennis, pool table and the tennis court. Large well kept gardens for the kids to enjoy. Heartily recommended!

We stayed for a week in late January. it was absolutely perfect. the roaring log fire was a welcome treat in the evening when we returned from our outdoor sporting adventures. Maureen and Arwel’s hospitality show no bounds. the house is large and well appointed ... as are the bedrooms… couldn't recommend it more highly as an oasis of calm with a beautiful view of the hills and sea... well worth a walk to the top of the hill in front of the house with 360 degree commanding views of the whole area ... really really lovely place. thankyou Maureen and Arwel. see you next year riccardo
