The unique and secluded Victorian village of Nant Gwrtheyrn (or ‘Nant’ as it is often called) is a former quarrying village and an attraction in its own right. A Heritage Centre on site houses displays about the Welsh language and culture, as well as the history of the village.
Walking distance to a private beach and a lovely cafe on site, Gorllwyn stands in a row of quarryman’s cottages with great views over the lawn and out to sea.

The Welsh culture and heritage can be experienced first hand here on the coast of the beautiful Llyn Peninsula.

Beautiful and peaceful isolation!
Stunning location! Lovely staff at the main office and try to use even a little bit of Welsh with the localsFamily from Japan - 25th August 2017
I have been going to Nant for a number of years and have now stayed in three of the 4 self-catering cottages. it is the place to be if you want to relax and let your stress dissolve. the staff are always welcoming and rain or sun it is always spectacular. It was great. Visited Portmeirion, drove a little further afield and went to Corris Craft Centre and Machynlleth. Went up to Llithfaen to the Fic, be prepared to have basic Welsh, this is a Welsh speaking area so please respect the locals even if you are only able to greet and say thank you.Rhys, currently living in Manchester - 11th September 2016

Tips: Depending on the wind direction, there are a number of choices of beaches to visit in the area.Family from West Yorkshire - 18th August 2016
