Reviews

The property was gorgeous, Carol the owner was lovely and on hand if we needed anything and everyone we met in the villages/shops etc. were very friendly and welcoming. So much to do and see, it definitely requires another visit. Ms Donna Cunningham - 19th September 2018
Lovely place. Great views.William from Surrey - 15th April 2018
The owner presents a beautiful home in an amazing setting, the view is outstanding and the interior has been thoughtfully designed for comfort and the practicalities of large groups.Terence from Oldham - 8th April 2018
Thank you, Carol, for letting us stay in your amazing house. The Christmas decorations were absolutely fantastic, adding the finishing touches. We all enjoyed the amazing space throughout the house and made good use of the games room and fab hot tub. The views are stunning and we all had a wonderful time with lots of happy memories.The Dawson's, West Yorkshire - 5th January 2018
We had a very enjoyable holiday in this house. The house is beautiful and the hot tub is great - my son, aged 11. An absolutely amazing house and stunning location. The house was even better than we had expected and the games room and hot tub were the icing on the cake! Stunning Christmas decorations gave the house a lovely festive feel. Despite the high winds we managed a coastal walk every day. Ideal base for three families - 6 adults and 6 children. We would highly recommend it!The Coopers family, West Yorkshire - 5th January 2018
Superbly located and equipped property, highly recommended.Sally from Royston - 3rd January 2018
Beautiful location for our Xmas celebrations. Comfortable, warm, cosy and well stocked. Lovely hamper of local goodness. Stunning views across the bay. Weather changeable but two wonderful days to enjoy the coastal walks. Thank you!Family from UK - 29th December 2017
Thank you for your welcome, the house is wonderful and the Christmas decorations has made it special. The house had everything and more in making my husband's 70th Birthday, everything we hoped for. Great fun was had by everyone when it snowed on Sunday. We will remember the amazing views for years to come.Gloria and family - 16th December 2017

After coming to Llyn every year throughout the 60's, 70's,80's and 90's, our family (plus younger generations) reassembled this year, and Plas y Môr was the perfect venue. Every one of us (ranging from 16-83) had a wonderful stay, and we were bowled over by the house and the views. Thank you so much for the amazing transformation you have brought to this houseThe Coe Family - 14th July 2017
We have been to various holiday cottages but Plas y Mor beats them all. Your beautiful home went beyond our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We definitely have wonderful memories of our holiday and we hope to come back again. If we were to give marks out of 10 Plas y Mor would get 11.
Kadziramge Family - 22nd June 2017
We have absolutely fallen in love with the place. Beautiful home, amazing view, homely gestures, smiles all around. Carol (owner) is really warm, welcoming and gratifying. Overall it was an experience of a lifetime in a special location. Thank you!Family from Hertfordshire - 15th June 2017
The owner greeted us shortly after arriving. She couldn't have been more accommodating, helpful or charming if she tried. We settled in quick and had THE best time there. Beautiful property which will be highly recommended, set in a beautiful area.
It was professional through and through from the website to the owners.
Tips: Be prepared for inclement weather. Plan for all of the national trust sights and attractions, beaches etc whether it be sun or rain. You'll be guaranteed a fantastic time with a small bit of research.Nick from Leicester - 16th May 2017
The property was lovely, best I have stayed in, it was clean, it had every thing you needed. The owner came to see us which was nice. We had a lovely family holiday.

Luxurious, relaxing, spacious and amazing. The Ship in Aberdaron was excellent.Liz from Liverpool - 5th September 2016
Family holiday - chance to chill and enjoy some quiet time. We did very little all week as the weather was not too great but we did go to Aberdaron Beach which was great and also clambered down a steep path to the local beach and played rounders. Lots of board games and wine. Quiet time was fab.Julie & Keri from Brecon Beacons - 5th August 2016

Relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings with an amazing view. Local beach is very niceEmma from North West England - 24th June 2016
Lovely family holiday to allow our family to enjoy some time together to relax, have fun and catch up.
Recomendations: Fresh & The Dining Room in Abersoch, Zinc for lunch & drinks, Porth Ceiriad beach a favourite of mine (best kept secret!). Walk the beaches, explore and make sure that even when its drizzly & raining that you go out.... the weather changes depending on where you are!Lucy from North Yorkshire - 17th June 2016
Extended family get together to celebrate an 80th birthday. Family age ranged from 10 to 80 and also brought along the dogs - there was something for everyone. Fantastic open plan kitchen / dining area meant that the whole family could spend lots of time together. Everything was perfect. Make sure you check out the great beaches at Abersoch.Family from Stafford - 2nd May 2016
Absolutely amazing place to stay.
Had everything we needed. Walk west from the house along the coastal path...amazing! Morfa Nefyn, Porth Colman and Whistling Sands worth a visit. everything went smoothly. Great service from Best of Wales.Steve from York - 19th April 2016
Exceptionally high standard property that exceeded our expectations.
Great location for family get together. The games room was an added bonus. Stunning views of the bay and beautiful sunrises. We walked along Aberdaron beach which was lovely. The surrounding roads are steep and narrow but this enables the cottage to benefit from the stunning views.Mrs Green - 20th March 2016
Plas y Mor was exceptional in every way, and certainly had the Wow factor.
It lived up to all expectations and more We spent a large part of the day in Aberdaron, the nearest large village. We walked along the beach, had tea and cake in the café, and eat out in the evening. We also walked up Uwchmynydd, and looked out over to Bardsey Island. We had booked to cross, but it was too windy, so that's on the agenda for next timeFriends from Bangor - 16th March 2016
It was superb in everyway. We were not disappointed by the property in any way.Fay and Family - 6th January 2016

Local Area

This large, detached sea view accommodation is set on the outskirts of the tranquil and unspoilt village of Rhiw. In an elevated position it is ideally placed for enjoying one of the best views on the Llyn Peninsula, if not the whole of Wales. The view of Porth Neigwl (Hells Mouth) and Snowdonia, over to Pembrokeshire on a clear day are breathtaking.

The beautiful coastal village of Aberdaron (4 miles) offers several cafes, shops, bakery and two pubs serving food. The village of Sarn Mellteyrn (also 4 miles) also offers a village shop, butchers, pottery, garage and two pubs. In addition to the Ship and Ty Newydd in Aberdaron, Venetia and Coconut Kitchen in Abersoch (6.5 miles) are also recommended for eating out, as are Bryncynan and Nanhoron Arms in Nefyn (12.5 miles). For a relaxing drink, the two pubs in Aberdaron offer a lovely setting.

The Llyn Peninsula is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, where the Welsh language and way of life still flourish. It is full of hidden treasures that are just waiting to be discovered and it is also renowned for its beaches and watersports. Plas yn Rhiw, a National Trust early 17th-century manor house with an ornamental garden and wonderful views is within walking distance of your sea view accommodation. It is also worth visiting the pub on the beach in Porthdinllaen and the sacred Bardsey Island (Ynys Enlli) by boat. With nearly 100 miles of stunning coastline it is also worth exploring the coastal path that goes all the way around the Llyn Peninsula.

Nant Gwrtheyrn Language and Heritage Centre (17 miles) is another great attraction within its own hidden bay by the sea. For a fun day out visit Glasfryn Park (go karts, ten pin bowling etc) or if you wish to relax, Plas Glyn-y-Weddw offers a magnificent Manor with galleries, beautiful gardens and tea room with sea views. Snowdon (the highest mountain in Wales), Ffestiniog Railway, Cricieth and Caernarfon castles and the Italian village of Portmeirion also offer great days out.
