Local Area

Enjoys beach holidays in Wales at this tranquil setting on the beautiful Llyn Peninsula. Located on the opposite side of a country lane from the owners’ stock farm, this detached cottage is one of just two holiday lets on site. If you have an extended family the other cottage also sleeps 8 and both are within walking distance (¼ mile) of the National Trust beach at Porthoer (Whistling Sands). As the English version of its name suggests, the sand at this beautiful beach does actually whistle under your feet when the conditions are right.

The All Wales Coast Path can also be joined here and this walk is highly recommended with 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.

The idyllic seaside village of Aberdaron is also within 2 miles – a definite must during your beach holidays in Wales. 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, incuding 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 visits 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.

Reviews

The grandchildren enjoyed playing in the garden, there were cows and sheep over the fence and of course the trampoline. Swallows were nesting in the eaves of the house. There was very little light pollution, you could see the stars, we saw the red planet MARS, Saturn and the milky way. We were about a mile from the Whistling Sands, you could walk or with all the baggage drive. All in all a holiday to remember. Mr J Stubbs - 13th August 2018
fantastic!Mr Neil Pickin - 6th August 2018
We stayed at this cottage from 14th July until the 21st. It was the perfect setting, perfect cottage, could not find anything wrong. There was 3 adults, 3 children aged 17, 13 and 11. Not one of these were bored or fed up. Excellent place really just want to keep it to myself. We also had two dogs who loved the space to run around within the secure ground of the cottage. The hot tub was a great bonus enjoyed by all. Thank you for providing a full perfect, relaxing week from the moment we entered the door until the moment we left.Wendy Mills and Stacey Weedon from Leicestershire - 21st July 2018
Would recommend this property without question. This was our third visit and I'm sure not our lastMiss Sara Wishart - 16th July 2018
Perfect location, friendly owners. Fantastic view of the sea in the distance. Could not fault it in any way.Mrs Lesley Overton - 9th July 2018
The bungalow is lovely and comfortable with a fantastic view to the rear.Dorothy from Cheshire - 30th April 2018
One of the best holidays. The cottage is a total escape, warm and welcoming with a lovely garden that is safe for my child and dog. We loved the scenery, which we enjoyed from the hot tub, that really made the holiday for me. Thank you everyone Tracy and Mike - 24th May 2017
It was perfect. Fantastic holiday in this lovely accommodation, lots to do in the local area and all the comforts of home. The beach is a must to visit, great views and the cafe is lovely. the fish and chips in Aberdaron are so good.Couple from Warwickshire - 23rd April 2017
Great property and location. Whistling Sands cafe is very good, coastal walks are stunning - easy to observe seals and other wildlife. Good fishing from various locations.Family from Worcester - 26th September 2016
Very enjoyable stay.
Tips - Visit Plas Brondanw Gardens which is about an hour's drive away near Porthmadog. Not very well known but was the home of Clough Williams Ellis who designed Port Meirion.Family from Sale - 11th June 2016
Lovely cottage in a quiet rural location.
Enclosed garden enabled us to safely let the dog out. The weather was good all week and we were able to go walking and also visit local towns and beaches The Ty Coch Inn can be found at a fantastic beach location at Morfa Nefyn. The food and beers were very good & we visited here twice. We also had excellent lunches at Kim & Co in Abersoch & at the stately home/gallery close to the lovely beach at Llanbedrog. Whistling Sands was also a nice beach .David from Bolton - 14th October 2015
