Croeso i Danrhiw - Welcome to Tanrhiw, our charming holiday cottage in the centre of Criccieth, famed for it's castle in a stunning location on the Lleyn Peninsula near the majestic mountains of Snowdonia in north west Wales.

The recently renovated centrally heated cottage is available for holiday lets and is only a short stroll from the beach, castle and high street in Criccieth.

The stunning Lleyn Peninsula rolls out into the Irish Sea off the north west corner of Wales. Much of the surrounding coastline and hills are part of a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. To the east is the Snowdonia National Park, with attractions for all weathers.

A car is not essental, but advisable. At the present time (June 2014) the train service terminates at Harlech, this is following damage to one of the bridges during the major storm in February of this year.

There is no parking immediately outside the property but within 10 metres there are about 10 parking spaces and 'pot luck' on the streets around the cottage. In 10 years of owning the property we have never had a problem parking.

There is presently no WIFI in the cottage but is available at a number of venues in Criccieth.

About this location

The Gwynedd region

Stretching out into the Irish Sea, south of Anglesey, Lleyn is the the northern limit of Cardigan Bay. Immersed in the Gulf Stream, the peninsula enjoys warmer, sunnier weather than further inland.

Porthmadog, about 4 miles east of Criccieth is the gateway to Lleyn with it's long high street and pretty harbour on the northern shores of the Glaslyn Estuary. Meanwhile, about 8 miles west of Criccieth is the unofficial capital of Lleyn, Pwllheli. The town has one of the busiest weekly open air markets in the country, as well as an award winning marina and two beaches.

Further west still is the popular resort of Abersoch with it's internationally recognised sailing waters and miles of sandy beaches. Near the tip of the peninsula is Aberdaron, this quaint little village backs it's own beach and is only a couple of miles from the western tip of the peninsula, which offers stunning views across to Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island) and even Ireland on a clear day! On the north coast, Porthdinllaen is a must for any visitor, with it's pub on the beach recently featuring in the top ten of the World's Best Beach Bars!


Tanrhiw is located at the centre of Criccieth, within easy walking distance of the shops, places to eat, takeaways, the castle, the town's two beaches and the railway station. The railway line runs behind the cottage, but only about twelve trains pass each day with the last before 11pm in the evening.

Criccieth is often described as "the pearl of Wales on the shores of Snowdonia" - and they're not wrong! The view as you enter the town on the A497 from Porthmadog has been said to rival views over Naples. All very high accolades for a resort which enjoys a mild climate and still retains a strong Welsh charm too!

The town is often very successful in the yearly Britain in Bloom competitions and the Criccieth Festival and visiting fairs are growing in popularity.

Criccieth has all you need for a relaxing holiday by the sea, however if you want to venture further afield, the stunning Llyn Peninsula offers plenty of places to go for a day out
