Anyone with a love of the countryside will be overwhelmed with its idyllic setting. This semi detached cottage is 2 miles from the coast and situated up a quiet, enchanting country lane 1.4 miles from the main B4413 road, on a working farm where Welsh is spoken as the first language. Immaculately tidy and well-kept gardens and yard, with in season flowers and shrubs. The farm yard is separate from the cottage making it more peaceful and quiet. Ideally situated to explore the pretty villages, stunning beaches, coves and harbours of the Llyn Peninsula.
The picturesque village of Aberdaron is 3 miles away with lovely pubs/cafes/shops/ bakery, and Porth y Swnt which is an interpretation centre by the National Trust. Amongst the best places to eat in the area is Ty Newydd and The Ship, both in Aberdaron and also your nearest good pubs (3 miles), Tremfan Hall in Llanbedrog (8 miles) and The Ship in Edern (9 miles). Also worth a visit is Plas yn Rhiw Café (2 miles) the cafes in Aberdaron (Y Gegin Fawr, Hen Blas and Becws coffee shop), Caffi’r Cwm and Ty Newydd Cafés at Uwchmynydd (4 miles). Not to forget the numerous excellent restaurants and cafes in Abersoch (8 miles).
There are a number of attractions in the area, including Plas yn Rhiw - a National Trust owned 17th century manor house in Y Rhiw (2 miles).

The village was the last rest stop for pilgrims heading for Bardsey Island. Also worth visiting is Porthoer (Whistling Sands) - known for its famous ‘ whistling sands’. This secluded gem of a beach is one of the perfect beaches in Wales. Just 4 miles away, this is a great place to relax with a beach café and beautiful coastal walks.

The cottage we stayed in was absolutely fabulous and I can not fault it. I was clean, cosy and welcoming. The owner left us a fresh loaf of bread, milk, Cake and mince pies (as it was Christmas.) The cottage location is great as its in the middle of rolling fields with fantastic views as you drive through the country lanes. The cottage was well equipped with cooking utensils etc. I would definitely stay here again. Hanna from Hampshire - 4th January 2018

It is a delightful cottage. The owner, Lowri, left fresh eggs and home made cake for us to enjoy, which was a lovely touch. Beautifully finished property, warm and inviting.
Tips: Just get out and explore. This area of North Wales has the most amazing beaches; lovely people and is a world away from the hustle and bustle of towns and cities.
