Dogs on holiday
All dog owners know how difficult it can be holidaying with dogs. You love them dearly and wouldn't dream of not having them with you on holiday, but wouldn't it be nice if you could have a night off? To go for a nice meal or a drink? To sit inside a restaurant or a pub for a change and most importantly not having to worry about them? Well at Ashcoast House you can. We would be more than happy to look after your dogs in our house, while you have a well-deserved night off.
Thinking of climbing Snowdon? Hiring mountain bikes and spending the day in the glorious Beddgelert Forest? Perhaps you would enjoy an adrenaline-packed day on the wires at Snowdonia Zip-World or surfing the waves at Surf-Snowdonia? But you are worried about your dogs? Just let us know in advance and we will look after them while you are out during the day. They will be safe and sound so you can relax and make the most of the day.

Our second visit to Ashcoast House and we loved it as much as last time. Thank you. We feel so comfy here, a real home from home. We did more of Anglesey & the Llyn this time. Llandwyn beach was amazing, as was Borthy Gest and Aber Falls. Thank you for looking after Betty (again). Can't wait for our next visit.
Sue & Warren - Rochdale by Sue & Warren on April 14th 2018
What a terrific base for touring Anglesey and the Llyn Peninsula. So many places only 15-20 min apart. We even had sunshine! Thoroughly enjoyed our week and would return.
Louise, Sam & Family - London by Louise, Sam & Family on April 5th 2018
Many thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable stay. So very well equipped, comfy beds, soft towels, toiletries, all catered for. Wish we had a longer stay. So much to see and do. Recommended places to see, Dinas Dinlle beach, walk to Llyn Dinas, Twr Mawr beach, National Park at Anglesey, all well worth a visit. Recommended in every way.

We've had a lovely holiday in this beautiful house. The cleanliness was second to none which is something we rarely find on our travels. It's a credit to the owners and they should be very proud. Everything required for a perfect holiday has been provided with extra thoughtful touches. All in all an ideal base for days out and a wonderful house to return to at the end of the day. Hope to be back next year.
Gemma, Matt, Korben and Jenson - Derbyshire - 28/10/17 by Gemma & Matt on October 28th 2017
Thank you for a wonderful stay, a home from home! We love this area of Wales & still there are many places left to explore. It was a treat to have so many walks & bike rides from the doorstep at Ashcoast. This cottage is so well equipped & thank you for the warm welcome & all the extra treats provided. The kids loved the games, books & toys. We enjoyed days out at Borth-y-Gest, Caernarfon, Llanberis and Beddgelert. We hope to return very soon to continue our North Wales adventures.

After years of staying in holiday lets this property ticks all and every box. Most appreciated is its cleanliness, an abundance of towels and all the extras that you usually have to bring with you, but was provided here. In an amazing location, great attention to details and thought given to the needs of the holiday maker. This is a real home from home. Also catered for are our dogs, with doggy cupboard full of necessities. Can’t wait to come back!!

A great week in a perfect home from home! So many thoughtful extras; toiletries, cakes, wine, milk etc. Dorothea lakes proved an exciting outing as we watched a helicopter rescue of an injured diver.
