Holiday Cottages on the Llŷn

The Llŷn - difficult to miss in its prominent North West Wales position, with Caernarfon Bay to one side and Cardigan Bay the other. The renowned coastline of sandy beaches, headlands and coves is as rich in wildlife as this area is rich in Celtic heritage. The opportunity for many different types of holiday all rolled into one is why the Llŷn is such a brilliant destination for beach lovers, outdoor activity enthusiast of all kinds, those who want the bustle of traditional seaside towns and villages and those wanting to get away from it all!

Here are some suggestions on how to make the most of your Llŷn holiday:

62 square miles of the Peninsula is classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which makes this a fantastic location for walkers and nature lovers with the Llŷn Coastal Path, a waymarked footpath running the 91 miles (146km) along the stunning coastline between Porthmadog and Caernarfon.

The beach at Porthor, close to Aberdaron on the tip of the Peninsula, is commonly known as Whistling Sands due to the squeak and whistle the sands often emit when you walk on them. Seals are often spotted off the coast, especially if you’re in the water perfecting your bodyboarding technique. There will be plenty of birds around as well from Cormorants to Yellowhammers.

There’s sheltered surf at Whistling Sands but the serious surfers head to Porth Neigwl (Hell’s Mouth) where the beach is exposed to the force of the Atlantic Ocean and can often produce fabulous swells and strong currents.

Pwllheli, with open-air market, independent shops, supermarkets and beaches, is the unofficial capital of the Llŷn and also a popular destination for sailors due to the large marina that has played host to international events and competitions.

Further up the coast, heading towards the Snowdonia National Park, the seaside resort is dominated by the extensive remains of Criccieth Castle, perched on the headland between two beaches, with panoramic views over the town, surrounding countryside and Cardigan Bay.

For a fun filled family day out head to Glasfryn Parc, inland from Pwllheli, for a wide choice of indoor and outdoor activities. From go-karting to archery, wakeboarding to clay pigeon shooting there’s plenty of reasons to stay out in the fresh air but the ten pin bowling and soft play area may well tempt you inside. On site is a farm shop and we are proud to work with this fantastic business to promote locally produced food and encourage our guests to make the most of our area. Take a look here for details of our Glasfryn Parc offer.

More high-octane fun can be had at Dragon Raiders Activity Park, close to Criccieth, with paintball, Segway adventures and Bear Grylls survival academy. Activities here are very popular so you will need to pre-book.

A much quieter pace of life can be enjoyed with a visit to Plas Yn Rhiw, a manor house, parts of which date back to the C17th, managed by the National Trust and with a beautiful garden incorporating viewpoints to make the most of beautiful views. Another fabulous house well worth visiting is Plas Glyn y Weddw in Llanbedrog. This Gothic mansion is now home to a unique art gallery and the woodlands in the grounds feature a network of trails popular with walkers.
