A quintessential family seaside holiday cottage on the Llyn Peninsula | Tyn-Lon
A quintessential family seaside holiday cottage on the Llŷn Peninsula, Tyn-Lôn comes with a wonderful garden hot tub and far-reaching countryside views. It sleeps up to six guests in three bedrooms, and well behaved pets are also welcome.
Tucked away on a quiet country lane in the peaceful Llŷn countryside, and close to some of the region’s best beaches – including some idyllic secret coves – the setting is pretty hard to beat if you’re looking for a relaxing coastal getaway.
The cottage is a traditional single storey Welsh cottage, which, going back a few generations, would have housed a farming family in one half and their most prized animals in the other.
The local livestock tend to be field or barn based these days, and the cottage has been recently and stylishly renovated. It is a bright, airy welcoming space with original period features framed by contemporary fabrics and furnishings.
The front door opens into a small hallway which is a handy place to kick off your coats and boots. From there, you’ll find two main living spaces, the largest of which is a fabulous kitchen diner, which is really more of a kitchen, sitting room, diner. This is a really sociable space, with a well-equipped – and very new – kitchen, a large dining table and two comfortable sofas.
Double patio doors open out from this fabulous room onto the outdoor dining terrace, with a spacious lawned garden beyond. The views across the countryside are uninterrupted, and the picture of bucolic loveliness.
If you’re after another space to hunker down and relax, there is a second snug sitting room with two sofas arranged around a toasty wood burner and original stone fireplace.
There are three good sized bedrooms in this quintessential family seaside holiday cottage on the Llŷn Peninsula. One double bedroom, a king size bedroom with a smart en suite bathroom, and a twin bedroom. There is also a shared family bathroom with a walk in shower and separate bath.
Outside, as well as that dining terrace and spacious garden, there is a wonderful hot tub. The ideal place to relax with a sundowner or two after a day out exploring, or maybe you’d prefer a champagne breakfast? The wrap-around garden is fully enclosed by ranch style fencing.

In this part of North Wales you’re never far from a spectacular beach, but this quintessential family seaside holiday cottage on the Llŷn Peninsula is close to some of the very best.
Beyond the golden sands of Aberdaron (4 miles), Porth Neigwl and Abersoch (10 miles) you should really explore some of the lesser known parts of the Llŷn that are distinctly off the usual beaten track.
The ‘secret’ cove of Porth Iago is just over a mile from the cottage – a 30 minute walk or a very short drive. It is a stunning west facing cove, with white sands flanked by grassy headlands. The cove is beautiful and relatively sheltered from the wind – a great place for a restorative dip in crystal clear blue waters or a leisurely family picnic.
Porth Oer, or Whistling Sands, is another gem of a beach near this cottage – around 2 miles. So called because of the sound the beach’s unusually shaped grains of sand make when you walk on them, it is another stunning sheltered cove, but this time backed by steep grassy cliffs.
One of our favourite beaches has to be at Porthdinllaen near Nefyn, around 10 miles from the cottage. It’s home to another beautifully sheltered sandy bay and what is consistently voted one of the best bars in the world – the Ty Coch Inn. An idyllic place for a pint and a ploughman’s, but check opening times before you visit.
More generally, the Llŷn’s sandy beaches are brilliant playgrounds for all sorts of watersports including kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing, SUPing and surfing. You can take regular boat trips from Aberdaron and Pwllheli marina. Head to Abersoch for surf and paddleboarding lessons, as well as great restaurants, cafés, bars and shopping.
