Ideally located for your coastal cottage holidays on the Llyn Peninsula. Situated on the opposite side of a country lane from the owners’ stock farm, and surrounded by beautiful, tranquil countryside. Within walking distance (0.25 mile) of the National Trust beach at Porthoer (Whistling Sands) - a beautiful beach where the sand does actually whistle under your feet when the conditions are right. You can also join the coastal path here to enjoy spectacular views of Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island), along the Peninsula and towards Snowdonia.
Ynys Enlli, a former site of religious pilgrimage is now a National Nature Reserve that can be visited by boat from Porth Meudwy, just 2 miles from your cottage. Also 2 miles away is the idyllic seaside village of Aberdaron. This is the most western village on the tip of the Llyn Peninsula where you will find a lovely sandy beach, cafes, two excellent pubs with restaurants, a village Bakery where you can get fresh bread every morning, Spar shop, newsagents and a Beach shop.
There are also a number of other amazing beaches for you to enjoy on your coastal cottage holidays, as well as the coastal resort of Abersoch and Pwllheli, the ‘capital’ of the Llyn Peninsula. The Llyn Peninsula is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty where the Welsh language and way of life still flourish. It is also renowned for its water sport and delightful coastal villages. With 84 miles of stunning coastline, an array of hills of varying height inland plus the majestic mountains of Snowdonia on your doorstep, it’s also a great place for a walking holiday.
Other recommended days out include a visit to the historical Plas yn Rhiw manor house (6 miles), Felin Uchaf Educational Centre (5 miles) and the numerous castles, including Cricieth (26 miles) and Caernarfon (35 miles). For family days out, Glasfryn Parc is a must with its go-karting, ten-pin bowling, archery etc, along with the Ffestiniog Railway, the Italian village of Portmeirion, Greenwood Forest Park and the National Slate Museum at Llanberis.
