"A small, country cottage located very near to a well used road and attached to two other properties... V good location for Snowdonia and the coast. Very low ceilings upstairs. Generally well equipped... Many cafes etc. closed during winter but, more far importantly, no crowds, no queues, no hassle!"

Things to Do

With more than 100 miles of largely undiscovered coastline and the stunning Snowdonia National Park within easy reach, the Lleyn Peninsula is a fabulous base for an active family holiday.

There are long stretches of sand to be found on the southern beaches, isolated crags and surfers bays on the northern coastline. It’s utter bliss for nature lovers, with seals a fairly regular sight for walkers along the coast path.


When you've tired of the beaches then head off to the hills for a whole new perspective on the countryside. There are "starter" hills on the Peninsula itself, or Snowdonia just a short drive away for summits to shout about...and a whole new way to tire out the children!
