This handsome stone cottage in the peaceful Llŷn countryside occupies a central rural location on the scenic Llŷn Peninsula and is ideally placed for easy access to many of the region’s attractions.
The Glasfryn Parc Activity Centre is close by, offering hours – or even days – of family fun including go-karting, wakeboarding, aquapark, archery and stand up paddleboarding.
Other nearby attractions include the Dragon Raiders Activity Park, Dwyfor Ranch Animal Farm and Activity Park and Portmeirion Village, with Bounce Below and Zip World a scenic 45 minute drive into the mountains at Blaenau Ffestioniog.
The Llŷn is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with an exceptional and dramatic shoreline of coves, cliffs, bays, secret sandy beaches, offshore islands and wild beating waves. It is slightly more remote, and therefore less visited, than other parts of North Wales, and a great place for anyone who is looking for a really quiet holiday retreat.
The seaside town of Pwllheli with its supermarkets, quaint shops and amenities is 20 mins drive away from this handsome stone cottage in the peaceful Llŷn countryside. Pwllheli is a real maritime town, with a large marina and sailing community. You can book in for some great boat trips from the harbour.
The charming coastal village of Criccieth is a 25 minute drive from the cottage, with its traditional Welsh tearooms, some great places to eat out, as well as some very decent fish & chips. Expect to find attractive independent shops and some wonderfully browsable galleries and antiques.
The Llŷn’s sandy beaches and sheltered bays are brilliant playgrounds for all sorts of watersports including kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing, SUPing and surfing – but they’re also great for the more traditional seaside pursuits of paddling, swimming, rock pooling, ice cream licking and sandcastling.
For slightly more weatherproof days out, head to Harlech with its steep winding streets and UNESCO-listed 13th century fortress (40 minutes), or Caernarfon to see the mighty medieval castle where every Prince of Wales has been invested since 1301 (30 minutes). Or how about a day out on a steam railway? The Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland railway are a fabulous way to see North Wales – climb aboard at Caernarfon or Porthmadog.
There are more beaches than you could ever reasonably hope to explore on the Llŷn Peninsula, but one of our favourites has to be at Porthdinllaen near Nefyn. It’s home to a 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.
