Lovely property - highly recommended and Lowri and family are very friendly Gaynor from Oxfordshire - 17th April 2018
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

Local Area

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.

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.

Another special experience is to catch a boat to Bardsey Island from Porth Meudwy (3 miles). Phone Colin to book your trip on 079710769895.
