The cottage has a wonderful private garden which looks out onto the incredible landscape beyond; mountains in one direction and the sea in the other. There is plenty of space to eat outside and if you have children in the mix, they will have lots of fun exploring the area.
In terms of what there is to do in the area, you are really well positioned to explore both the north coast and the Llyn Peninsula. Pwllheli is your nearest town. A lovely harbour market town – plenty of lovely places to eat and drink and if you are into sailing, Plas Heli would be on your list of things to do.
Nearby are the Bear Grylls Survival School and Glasfryn Parc. Two great places to visit for wakeboarding, SUP, karting and lots of other great outdoor activities. There are also lots of beautiful beaches and hidden coves along the north side of the Llyn Peninsula and Abersoch is further up where of course you’ll find the popular village where surfers flock throughout the summer. Criccieth is 10 minutes away from where the award-winning Dylan’s restaurant is located and certainly worth the effort to visit, especially on a summer’s day.
Heading in towards the mountains, Caernarfon is only a 15 minutes drive away where you will find of course the castle and a lovely town where the new harbour has some great restaurants, cafes and bars. From here, a 20 minute drive will take you into the Snowdonia villages and towns where you can enjoy the mountains and lakes.
