Mrs F,


This Nant Gwrtheyrn self catering cottage is the perfect setting for a relaxing sea-side holiday on the northern coast of the Llyn Peninsula in North Wales. 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 nearest shop and pub can be found 1 mile away in the village of Llithfaen and some of the recommended places to eat include Caffi Meinir (on site), Nanhoron in Nefyn (5 miles) and The Ship Inn in Edern (7 miles).
