Excellent base on the Llyn
Stayed here for a week in early October, in order to walk the coastal path along the north coast of the Llyn peninsula (local bus services make it quite feasible to do this linear walk over several days). Basically, Tan Y Brachty is a one-bedroom first floor flat with additional 2 bedrooms built into a loft conversion approached by a spiral staircase, so it will sleep 6. There were only 2 of us (a couple) so we didn't use the loft rooms. A very spacious, light flat with great picture windows in the lounge giving wonderful views to the hills and also the Maritime Museum (an erstwhile church) which is just behind the property. It was lovely and cosy as the heating was on, being October. Very well equipped and mostly very comfortable. My only quibble is that the mattress on the double bed is due for replacement: I found it quite lumpy. The front door lock is awkward. The trick is to put the key in then pull it out the tiniest amount, then turn. Practice before you really need to use it! There is a parking space behind the house, although we had no problem parking on the street at the front. The entrance is at the front and the entrance lobby is a good place for keeping outdoor clothes, especially boots etc. There is an enclosed patio at the side but we didn't use it as it wasn't exactly patio-weather! It's a lovely area with lots of things to do even out-of-season. There's a good Spar in Nefyn for food purchases, and larger supermarkets in Pwllheli which is only a few miles away. We didn't eat out but we did try Ty Coch Inn at nearby Dinllan Bay for a drink - a lovely old pub right by the sea.

We stayed here for a week in August. Spectacular views from the living/dining room. It is a very well equipped house. Plenty of room for the 6 of us (2 adults & 4 children) the kids loved the spiral staircase and having the top floor all to themselves, which had bean bags and their own tv with lots of dvds to chose from. There were board games also. We found this an excellent base for our holiday. With Parking and also a BBQ area. We could walk to the beach. The large kitchen was well equipped and I loved having a dishwasher with the 6 of us there. Bathroom was lovely, in fact the whole house was well presented and very clean. Loved having tea, coffee and milk for when we arrived.

Very comfortable with beautiful views from the property.
Home from home, a very comfortable property with beautiful views and the bonus of being close to some stunning sandy beaches. The property was very clean and tidy on arrival and I had spoken to the owner prior who was very friendly and helpful and had ensured there were plenty of tea, coffee, sugar and milk on our arrival which after a very long drive was very much appreciated. The property was very easy to find and is located on the main route into the village. Parking is provided and located to the rear of the property for one car. We had 2 cars and at times found it difficult to park outside the front of the property but it was the Bank holiday long weekend. To the right of the property there is a gate which provided access to a secure large patio area with table, chairs and a gas fired BBQ, which was a very nice touch. Inside the property it is constructed on 3 levels, the ground floor giving access with a large entrance space which then leads to a staircase. This then enters onto the main hallway (1st floor) which provides access to the double bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living combined dining room. On this level there is also a spiral staircase which leads onto the 2rd floor which in turn provided access to a snug area with 3 very comfortable large bean bags and a TV which was a perfect games room for my children. This in tern provided access to the bedrooms 2 and 3 which both continued 2 single beds. One thing I would say is that if anyone has mobility issues or very young children they will find the spiral stairs challenging. The local beach is 5 to 10 minutes walk, and provides stunning views, plus has is a dog friendly area. There is a car park but this is very small and only has around 15 spaces. The access leading to it has no parking during the summer months. There are 2 local shops, one being a very well stocked Spar. But for the larger shop you can drive to Pwilheli which has an ASDA and other major stores. The only thing missing in my view was Wi-Fi. Due to its location the mobile phone reception is very poor and has no 4 G and for those who have teenagers who are stuck to the internet be warned. We really did enjoy our stay and would have no hesitation in recommending this property to our family and friends :-)

The size of the bathroom and kitchen were great. We also loved the views from the sitting room window. It was very clean and well fitted out. Would definitely recommend this place to family and friends!

Great base for a family holiday!
We loved the views from the sitting room, the space and well appointedness (new word alert) of the kitchen and bathroom and the proximity of all of Nefyn's many charms. The accommodation was comfortable, clean and spacious. Whilst we did have the opportunity to put the patio/BBQ area to good use, it is a brilliant addition! We would have liked to have wifi and a cafitiere, but aside from that, thoroughly enjoyed the place and would happily recommend to friends and family/stay there again.
