Cosy cottage on the northern coast of the Llyn Peninsula, Glan-Yr-Afon. Two bedrooms, sleeping four, this is a beautiful cottage tucked away in the harbour village of Trefor. Originally a quarryman’s cottage, many of the original features have been kept with exposed stone walls and fireplaces running throughout the property giving it a rustic yet modern feel.
The Llyn Peninsula is a fantastic place to visit with the northern coast being home to some of the most stunning beaches and hidden coves the UK has to offer. Not far from the madding crowds in the Snowdonia mountains themselves, you are perfectly placed to travel and explore both of these popular North Wales destinations – plenty of outdoor activities, lots of great places to eat and drink and of course a wealth of history and culture to take in as you make your way around.
It is a cute stone cottage set along a quiet street within the village. Through the front door, you come into the sitting room and dining area. The exposed stonework is beautiful and combined with cosy sofas and blankets, it is just asking for you to sit back and relax and take in the quietness around you. There is a wall-mounted flat-screen TV – great use of space and the dining area is set towards the back of the room, just off from the kitchen where the cream table and chairs fit perfectly with the rest of the feel of the room.
The kitchen, at the back of the cottage is galley style, again with a feature stone wall giving it lots of character and a warm feel. There is everything you will need to cater for your holiday, including a washing machine dryer.
Upstairs to a double and twin room, they are very serene. Simply decorated, the beds are the feature of the rooms with thick mattresses and plump white duvets – so inviting and the minimal furniture, wooden floorboards and general feel of the rooms will make for a great night’s sleep.
A family bathroom with shower over bath set up, WC, washbasin is also located on this floor.

The cottage itself has a small, private outside courtyard with table and chairs where you can sit outside and enjoy breakfast al fresco or a barbecue in the evening and is a hundred yards from local shop.
Trefor is listed as an area of outstanding natural beauty and located on the Wales Coastal Walk path. The beach is sandy and with the headlands, sand dunes and cliffs that surround it, makes for great days on the beach during the summer and perfect for walking during the winter months – due to the variation of landscape, there is lots of wildlife and if you’re a bit of bird watcher, you won’t be disappointed.
Heading west further into the Llyn Peninsula, you have lots of great beaches to visit, including Nefyn and the famous Ty Coch pub which, if you are there during the summer months, make a point of visiting – the golf club here is also one of the most beautiful in the world. Whistling sands beach is also just around the corner and another great place for swimming. Pwllheli is a market town and home to a Marina, Criccieth is where you’ll find the castle, great antique shops and of course Cadwaladers Ice cream and Dylan’s. Abersoch is surfing central and a very lively community. Plenty of walking and cycling routes, outdoor activities, museums, and of course places to eat and drink are on your doorstep.
Heading East, you enter the realms of Snowdonia – needless to say there is plenty of walking, climbing and water sports to be done in the mountains and lakes. Caernarfon is only 20 minutes away from where you’ll find the iconic castle and a little further along you have the famous ZipWorld just outside of Bangor. Driving through Snowdonia and visiting all the great villages along the way is certainly something to do – Betws Y Coed, Beddgelert and Llanberis are some of the bigger ones to see.
