Property is amazing, secure garden for the dogs, equipped with really good quality appliances and furniture. Decorated beautifully and so modern. The views were to die for! I loved the place and the remote location. I would go back 100%.

Miss J,

A perfect family holiday. Road trips and exploring by day, and a beautiful immaculate property to chill and relax in by night. Would highly recommend.

Mrs F,

Excellent property, great location and very clean.

Mr D,

We loved this property, perfect place to relax. Very high standard, super cosy with a fabulous sea view. Owner was brilliant, there was a power cut in the area whilst we were staying but they were out connecting up a generator within 1/2 hour.

Ms Lynne A,


Enjoy your own private corner at Llain Iago - one of three semi-detached cottages within a beautifully converted barn complex on the Llyn Peninsula. Surrounded by stunning countryside and sea views, within a mile of a hidden beach and just 3.5 miles to Aberdaron on the western tip of the peninsula. The three cottages enjoy privacy from each other - perfect if you want your own retreat and also ideal if you wish to invite family members of friends to join you at the other two cottages. With its own enclosed patio and lawn, this is a true haven to relax and to be inspired.

In addition to the hidden, sandy beach at Porth Iago, you will also benefit from access to the Wales Coast Path within a mile. Follow this path for just over a mile to the west and you will discover The National Trust beach of Porthoer (Whistling Sands - where the sand does actually whistle when the conditions are right) with its beach-side cafe.

The picturesque seaside village of Aberdaron offers a range of amenities, including two pub/restaurants (Ty Newydd and The Ship) with excellent food, a thatched roof bakery with a tea room, lovely cafes, Spar and National Trust shop. It is also worth exploring the rest of the peninsula to discover more of the hidden treasures, little cafes and pretty villages that are dotted around. This includes Morfa Nefyn (10 miles) and Abersoch (11 miles), a slightly bigger coastal resort with a wide range of amenities including restaurants and shops. Pwllheli (15 miles), the unofficial 'capital' of the Llyn Peninsula offers a good range of local amenities including a variety of independent shops, cafes and restaurants, supermarket, banks and 2 markets - one on Wednesdays and the other on Sundays (May to September).

Some of the main attractions include the sacred island of Ynys Enlli (Bardesy Island) - once a site of religious pilgrimage, now a National Nature Reserve. Boat trips are available from Porth Meudwy (5 miles) to Bardsey Island. Slightly further than Porth Meudwy, on the most westerly point of the Peninsula is Uwchmynydd - a historic headland offering a spectacular viewing point towards Barsey Island and the coast. As these examples suggest, the Llyn Peninsula is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty and Llain Iago offers an ideal base to explore this special part of Wales.

The Llyn Peninsula, where the Welsh language and way of life still flourish, is renowned for its beautiful beaches and watersport whilst the majestic mountains of Snowdonia are also within a short travelling distance. There are numerous activities in the area including fishing, horse-riding, golf and Glasfryn Parc where you can enjoy go-karting, ten-pin bowling, archery etc. Plas Glyn-y-Weddw, a magnificent Manor with galleries, beautiful gardens and tea room with sea views is well worth a visit, whilst both the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highlands Railways also offer great days out. Not to mention Cricieth and Caernarfon castles, the Italian village of Portmeirion, a walk or train ride up Snowdon and much more.
