Marian Graig is an 18th-century, former blacksmith’s cottage recently refurbished into an ideal luxury self-catering getaway for two. Set on the shores of a land romantically known for its pride and devotion, this cottage is where lovebirds, new and old, can come together again.
A luxury love nest
Tucked away behind the mighty mountains of Snowdonia, on the headland overlooking the most sheltered sandy beach in North Wales, lies the village of Llanbedrog and this blissfully romantic holiday cottage. Combining traditional Welsh character with a modern eye for comfort, Marian Graig invites you to cuddle up in the cosy glow of inglenook fireplace wood burner.
While the sun is still out, have an intimate al fresco dinner on the patio. Then, with friendly pubs, art galleries, and the beach all within a few minutes’ walk, you might enjoy an evening stroll through town. In fact, billowing with heather and fringed with pine trees, the steep, rocky headland above the beach is a breath-taking place from which to watch the sunset. But don’t go too far – back at Marian Graig, you’re sure to slip into the hot tub and finish the day gazing up at the stars.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
With a single room on the first floor, Marian Graig makes romantic couples with young families feel as welcome as couples travelling alone. The couple is still the undeniable priority, however, and nowhere is that clearer than the luxurious double room under the gables. In the beautifully-appointed bathroom, the double-ended bath is an ideal place to let reality soak even further away, to the gentle glow of candlelight and soft music.
There is private, off-road parking for two cars. Immediately next door to the house is a separate laundry room with a washing machine, tumble dryer, and storage space for bikes. One bag of kindling and two starter bags of firewood for your stay are supplied, and additional logs can be purchased locally. We are also happy to provide a high chair and travel cot, but ask that you please request these upon booking. 1 dog welcome - Please inform us when booking. Should not be left unattended in the cottage at any time, in the bedrooms or on furniture. The property has Netflix.

The owner of the property, Robert, was lovely. He was flexible with arrival times and met us at the cottage to say hello. He was helpful when needed during our stay, and then came to say good bye with a hand shake and a hug. Beautiful cottage. Lovely, lovely man. Mrs helen skene - 15th June 2019
The hot tub was bliss after a day’s walking on the Coastal Path. We were very fortunate with the weather which made the beautiful scenery even more spectacular - with sunny weather, why would you ever leave our shores? The National Trust property, Plas yn Rhiw, is well worth visiting - so many interesting things to see in the house & the views are glorious. Mrs Sue Moss - 30th May 2019
The property was simply lovely and excellently equipped. We had a brilliant family Easter break! The owner was a lovely man who couldn’t do more than enough for us! And of course the hot tub was an added bonus which we very much enjoyed. Thanks for having us! Miss Jade Lee - 8th May 2019

Excellent stay in this cottage. Very comfortable and will be booking again for next year.Georgina from Cheshire - 14th November 2017
Marian Graig is a superb place with everything that you could wish for. Quiet, relaxing and so cosy! It really does earn it's 5 star rating. Local pub, The Ship, is a very short walk away and provides a good selection of delicious food. Llanbedrog Beach is magical whatever the weather. Pwllhelli town is just a short drive away - very convenient. All superb.Joan from Warrington, Cheshire - 4th November 2017
The property is a beautiful property, well maintained and had everything you needed.
It is in a quiet location but perfect to get out and about by car or on foot. Lots of days out are easily accessible. Finally, Robert the owner is a lovely man and you wouldn't find a more welcoming host. We enjoyed a meal at Zinc in Abersoch. Aqua Beach bar and restaurant just down the road is a lovely place, perfectly located on the beach and what a view to look at whilst enjoying a glass of wine ... even better when the sun is out!! We were more than happy with everything.Family from Cheshire - 9th August 2017
Fantastic, exceeded expectations, it was great! The Ship Inn offers great food a short walk away.Couple from South Ayrshire - 26th June 2017
An excellent property. We have now visited this accommodation around 8 times - we love it!
Recommends: Visit Black Rock Sands - drive on to the beach and take a picnic. Dillions in Criccieth is a lovely Restaurant with a great view.Paul from Nuneaton - 18th June 2017
My son, 11, and I visited for the third time and we absolutely love it there. We went to about 6 beaches, had gorgeous weather, and enjoyed the amenities of the house everyday (wood stove and hot tub). All the local beaches are great; Llanbedrog, Abersoch, Porth Ceiriad, Aberdaron, Whistling Sands, and the Ty Coch Inn is amazing! On previous trips we enjoyed going to Caernarfon, around Snowdonia, and Cricieth.
You were very helpful and the owner Robert is just lovely!!Heather from Sandhurst, Berkshire - 8th April 2017
Lovely welcome from Robert, Hot Tub, Log Fire, the latest films to watch, a wine cooler all surrounded by a beautiful area to explore. What more could you ask for.
Tips: Walk in to Abersoch along the Warren Beach. visit the little Cricieth Castle & have fish & chips on the beach wall.Rebecca from Birmingham - 10th March 2017
