Known as “Snowdon’s Arm” this wildly beautiful peninsula wraps you in a strong embrace. The Llyn’s mix of culture and heritage is quite unlike anything else that you will find in Wales – or elsewhere for that matter!

The magnificent landscape of Snowdonia, which boasts almost 200 miles of glittering coastline, is on the doorstep. Some of it is rocky and wild, other stretches with golden sands, hidden coves and picturesque views, are among Britain’s most idyllic. Only minutes away from the cottages is Black Rock Sands with its  sandy beach which stretches for about 2 miles – plenty of rock pools to explore.  Pretty Criccieth with its magical castle and pebbly beach is only 10 minutes away.

This is great walking country - the Llyn Coastal Path is 84 miles long and extends from Caernarfon along the north Llyn coast towards Porthmadog. https://walescoastpath.co.uk/llyn-peninsula-llyn/  

 

Ty Coch Inn, which looks out across the sands at Porthdinllaen has been named as one of the best beach bars in the world.  The inn can only be reached by walking either across the beach or across the golf course on the top of the headland.  http://www.tycoch.co.uk/

Bardsey Island with its rich wildlife, dramatic coastline and fascinating history is well worth a day’s trip – friendly Colin Evans will take you across on the boat. Book in advance https://www.bardsey.org/visit

The dominant feature of course is majestic Snowdon – Wales’ highest mountain the climbing of which can be a lifetime’s achievement. https://www.visitsnowdonia.info/snowdon-walking-routes  On a clear day you can see Ireland, Scotland, England and even the Isle of Man. However, for those wanting an easier ascent, you can take either the traditional or heritage steam train.

Visiting Portmeirion is a must and only 4 miles away https://portmeirion.wales/. Clough Williams-Ellis’ aim was to show how a naturally beautiful site could be developed without spoiling it. Today this quirky Italianate village is one of Wales’ premier visitor attractions.  

 

For the thrill seekers, Zip Wire Titan and Llechwedd Slate Mines offers the ultimate zipping experience http://www.zipworld.co.uk Each rider travels over 2kms with the total length of the zip lines at over 8kms! Alongside is Bounce Below http://www.bouncebelow.net/ - the world’s largest subterranean playground of its kind. Set within the slate cavern of a disused mine, huge trampoline like nets have been hung within two vast chambers which are linked together by walkways and slides.

There are too many castles to detail...........just a few to mention are Caernarfon, Conwy, Penrhyn, Harlech and Criccieth. You will find your own favourite.

Quickly becoming a “foodie” region there are great restaurants, farmer owned dairy cooperatives (South Caernarfon Creameries with its award winning Dragon Cheddar);  Distilleries, Breweries and even Vineyards! Worth visiting is Bodnant Welsh Food Centre at Conwy https://www.bodnant-welshfood.co.uk/.

Once you have been hypnotised by our cottages and this glorious region, we are sure that you will come back again and again.......CROESO!
