About the property

5* Mountain Retreat On The Llyn Peninsula - Quiet And Peaceful With Stunning Mountain And Sea Views

Gors-lwyd Cottage is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is nestled on the southern slopes of the majestic Yr Eifl, the highest mountain peak on the Llyn Peninsula.


* 5* detached cottage at the end of a country lane. The idyllic cottage is surrounded by open mountain which is grazed by sheep.

* Traditional cottage with modern facilities including WiFi.


Llithfaen village is within walking distance and has a shop and village pub. There are plenty of opportunities for sport and recreation, whether you enjoy walking, hiking, cycling, horse riding, bird watching, mountain climbing, fishing or golf.

Llithfaen is also within easy reach of the beaches of Nefyn, Porthdinllaen, Pwllheli and Criccieth, as well as the castles of North Wales (Conwy, Caernarfon, Harlech and Criccieth to name a few).

No holiday to this area would be complete without a trip up Mount Snowdon, a ride on the world-famous Ffestiniog steam railway or a visit to the famous slate caverns and slate museums. For a vacation destination to suit the requirements of the whole family Gors-lwyd is ideal.

About Mrs Samantha Watson

Whenever we walked passed Gors-lwyd we always thought it was a beautiful cottage in a stunning location. We would love you to visit our cottage and experience the peaceful location and mountain walks for yourselves.

Mrs Samantha Watson purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Mrs Samantha Watson chose Lleyn Peninsula

We love the Llyn Peninsula, it has everything from mountains, coastline, villages and towns to adventure activities and sports. Beautiful scenic areas which are unspoilt and perfect for a quiet getaway.

What makes this cottage unique

Llithfaen is an excellent location from which to explore North Wales. Gors-lwyd cottage itself is in a beautiful location. It is surrounded by open mountain and sheep graze right outside the door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Just got back from an enjoyable four day stay at Gors-Lwyd, the peaceful location with both mountain and sea views was perfect, the cottage itself was of high standard and the finishing touches and extra's that are provided made the stay a very pleasurable one. If I decide to return to the area again I would try to stay here again, meanwhile I will be recommending the cottage to others, Thanks very much." — S D, 06 Sep 2013

"We stayed at this lovely cottage last week. The cottage had everything we needed. It was in a perfect location, and the kids had a fantastic time as there was a different beach each day. "At night we used the barbecue and looked out onto the sea view! perfect!" — Mr & Mrs W, 29 Jul 2013

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage with fantastic views and a fantastic base for visiting the Llyn peninsular.

We had the most relaxing time and were blessed with near perfect blue sky...in March!

Sam had thought of everything even down to the lovely welcome basket of goodies.

Would highly recommend the cottage and would love to return.

This was the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. As others have stated, the photos don't do it justice. The cottage had everything that we needed and more, and is in a stunning location for fantastic walks. Sam has thought of everything and our children were delighted with the extras just for them. We would highly recommend this property and hope to return ourselves.

Superb holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had very good family stay in Sam's cottage. This charming cottage is fully equipped for a family stay with games, books, Blue-Ray films, large kitchen to cook relax (AGA style cooker) and a big garden/terrace with barbecue. We surely recommend you this lovely situated cottage.

Fantastic location, great quality and a friendly welcome!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the cottage for a few days and loved every minute. The location of the cottage is amazing, right under a mountain, with sea views and well positioned to explore the Llyn Peninsula.

The photos of the cottage really don't do it justice, it is so much nicer in real life - tastefully furnished with high quality finishes, immaculately clean and equipped with everything a holiday-maker might need, and a few things you didn't know you needed!

Sam was a great host, with good communication in the run up to the stay, a personal welcome on the day, the provision of a lovely welcome hamper of local food and drink, and the offer of being on hand throughout our stay if we needed anything. I prefer not to take hosts up on this type of offer but did need to ask for help, to which she replied quickly and very helpfully.

We are looking forward to returning again soon and can't recommend this cottage highly enough. Thanks Sam xx

Beautiful cottage in idyllic surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on the website were very accurate and on arrival and seeing in person it looked even better! Absolutely fantastic-meticulously clean, high standard of maintenance and so comfortable. Everything we needed was catered for- even a picnic hamper!

The patio and gardens are fabulous and the views from the cottage wonderful.

Sam the owner was so helpful and thoughtful-meeting us at the property to show us around and letting us know she was available at any time if needed as lived nearby. Also, as we were there celebrating our wedding anniversary we had asked about dining out - Sam offered to pay for taxis to take us to and from a restaurant of our choice so that we could leave our car as there were no restaurants within walking distance. That is customer service above and beyond!

The welcome pack was amazing with little extra touches added making it extra special and we were happily surprised with our anniversary greetings and Prosecco from Sam!

As there was lots of detail on the website for things to see and do, we had already planned our week from that, and the cottage has lots more information and leaftlets too. We enjoyed the local walks from the doorstep of the cottage-stunning area and views, and most helpful information on these was provided at the cottage. We visited castles, travelled on the Welsh Highland Steam railway and went up to the summit of Snowdon on the mountain railway(steam is best). Portmeirion was brilliant and the drive along the llanberis pass was fabulous.

The cottage is well placed for things to see and do and a wonderful place to relax in after a days excursions.

We really enjoyed our week stay and would love to stay again in the future just to spend more time at the cottage relaxing!

Will definately recommend to friends and family.

Thank you Sam.

Brian and Linda

peaceful location in a lovely part of North Wales

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet location close to hill and coast walks then this is a perfect spot. From here we explored the Llyn Peninsular by bike and by car and also spent one day in Snowdonia. Some great beaches along the coast especially 'whistling sands' . A great cottage.
