About the property

Cottage in Mynydd Nefyn, North Wales - On The Hillside Overlooking Nefyn. Set Within Its Own 7 Acres Of Fields And Streams.

Llwyn Ffynnon Cottage is a stunning 19th century cottage, packed with original features – inglenook fireplace with log burner, beamed ceilings, and with all the modern facilities you could ever want. Drive into the property, over the bridge and into the wooded dell with ancient cascading streams. There is ample flat car parking in front of you. Walk down to the cottage, sit out on the terrace and be amazed at the views over the beaches and harbours of Nefyn and Porth Dinllaen – look out for the Ty Coch pub on the beach, and sometimes if you have the luck of the Irish, the Wicklow Hills – you won’t believe how close they appear. Walk down the footpath from the cottage along the side of the stream down to the beach – no more than 15 minutes, and then you are on the miles of golden beaches, all edged by the Rival Mountains. Walk directly out of the driveway onto the Coastal Path – the Pilgrims Way. North towards the Rivals, and you could be in Switzerland, or South towards Bardsey, and the Island of Saints.

2018 is Wales' Year of the Sea, celebrate by visiting three Blue Flag beaches on the Llyn; Aberdaron, Abersoch and Pwllehli. Not to mention beautiful Nefyn beach and the bay of Porthdinllaen.

The cottage has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, one bedroom and the shower room are on the ground floor. Please note that apart from the stairs there are also a couple of internal steps on the ground floor.

As we are on the side of the mountain the area outside the cottage, apart from the immediate garden and parking area, is not flat and there are a number of steps to access the front and back doors. It may not suitable for the infirm, although we have had a 91 year old staying who had no problems at all and our own parents manage perfectly well!

One well behaved dog is very welcome as we have one of our own and our fields are well fenced, although we cannot guarantee that they are fully dog proof and you should be aware that there is livestock in the surrounding fields.

The mountain lane to the cottage is single track and is only accessible to cars and 4x4's. There are only four other cottages at the top of the lane so traffic is very light!

During your stay you may meet Terry, who looks after the grounds for us. It's not always possible to cut the grass and strim during change over days but he's very nice and friendly, and wouldn't say no to a cup of coffee!

We have a number of outdoor games; Jenga, badminton, Boules and even some super soakers to play with in the stream or the sea! There is equipment for the beach, like buckets and spades, windbreaks and bbq bucket.

We do also have a summer mooring in Nefyn bay which we are happy to let you use if you wish. Please just let us know when you book so that we can give you all the details.

This is our home from home, we spend as much time here as we can and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

About Chris Woodhead

We are Chris and Jen Woodhead and although we live in Derbyshire we spend as much time as we can on the beautiful Llyn.

Chris spent many happy holidays as a child on Nefyn beach which is why we purchased this lovely property and our six children have been lucky enough to have the same experience.

We love it here so much that in 2012 we got married at Nant Gwrtheyrn, a hidden little piece of Switzerland, well worth a visit!

Chris Woodhead purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Chris Woodhead chose Nefyn

The cottage had been on the market for nearly two years and seemed as if it had been waiting especially for us. It was in need of some TLC but we fell in love with it as soon as we came through the gate to the dell and the beautiful stream, the sea view was the icing on the cake!

What makes this cottage unique

The seclusion of the property is wonderful, with just the babbling of the ancient stream, sound of the waterfall and bird song for company. There are an abundance of wild flowers on the banks of the stream and in our surrounding fields, from snowdrops, daffodils, violets and primroses in early spring, bluebells in May and campions and foxgloves in summer.

Sitting on the terrace above the sea on the mountainside, you can see Anglesey and the lighthouse at South Stack to the right and the double bays of Nefyn and Morfa Nefyn to the left! It's easy to while away the hours sat here, whether we are watching a weather front coming in, an amazing sunset, the Wicklow Mountains of Ireland or sailing boats in the bay.

The Welsh Coastal Path runs right past our gate and you can be up the mountain or on the beach before you know it. For us, there is no better place!

A truly unforgettable holiday in a beautiful cottage ! The Llyn peninsula is Stunning !! The view from the cottage patio was breathtaking , even our 13 yr old daughter and friend were wowed by it !

We had family staying in the wern camping site which was on the shortest walk to the beach ( in cottage information book ) so

Perfect ! We had a walk along the coastal path to the Ty couch inn, stunning !! Great food , BBQ on the beach ( great BBQ bucket at cottage ) , saw Dolphins at Wern camping site end of nefyn Beach , visited portdaeron and Abersoch and a great late afternoon at Hells mouth on surf and body boards , unfortunately surf only up for one day in our week ! Had take out from Bombay joe as in Nefyn ( excellent ) and ate at Nanhoron arms which was also very good and walkable from house along the coastal path , a great week in a home from home cottage with everything you could want ! Thanks for the Wine and Bara brith !!

Extremely over priced for starters, feel like I've been well and truly stung here. The lounge was out of bounds for anyone larger than a cat, the house felt and looked tired, it needs some serious TLC, the house is in serious need of a revamp and please take those curtains down and wash them, they made me feel itchy, ditch that awful sofa, spend some money on the place. It's just not funny, sort out your kitchen utensils, pan cupboard etc, nothing makes sense in the kitchen, an under counter fridge is not big enough. Then the poor overgrown garden, all wooden frames, gates etc need maintenance. I feel like no one cares about this property, which is such a shame as it's in a lovely spot with fabulous views, when I say lovely spot, the road leading to the house is so narrow it's untrue, then you have to unload the car and carry it all to the house down a sloping path, if you're not 100% fit it's a nightmare. I really could go on, but I'm home now never to return to cats paradise.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have been to the Lleyn peninsula many times and love the area. The cottage was ideal and very well equipped. The weather was kind to us all week and we enjoyed sitting outside enjoying the fabulous view over Nefyn and Morfa Nefyn. We would definitely stay there again

Homely cottage with a fabulous view

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a week at this cottage. We were blessed with fabulous weather and love walking. The coastal scenery is stunning and there are walks literally from the cottage. We saw the whole of the Llyn and can recommend a trip to Bardsey Island! The local people were very friendly and helpful.

Beaches to sunbath on - a 15 minute walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world or a short drive to the other 26 Llyn beaches, from Whistling Sands to Hells Mouth, and not a donkey in sight. Rock pools and crabs, streams that run over the beaches and into the sea, feeding sandcastle moats and fill the buckets of toddlers, and shells and stones to collect - but not keep.


If you're traveling by train, the nearest railway station is Pwllheli. There is a very good local bus service that will get you into Nefyn, then just a short walk to the cottage. Alternatively use the main Rail link in Bangor, then it would be better to Taxi to the cottage. You don't need any transport whilst on holiday, everywhere is just a short walk on the ancient green roads that surround our cottage.


The Cottage is at Mynydd Nefyn, between the hamlet of Pystyll and the village of Nefyn. Just on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

We are 7 miles from the marina’s, and yachting centre of Pwllheli, 12 miles from the beaches and surf of Abersoch, and 19 miles from the Castles in Caernarfon.

Further Details:

There are a wealth of things to see and do in the beautiful countryside around Llwyn Ffynnon, several pubs: The Bryn Cynan for good wholesome meals, a walk along the beach for good ale and outdoor food at the 'third best beach bar in the world' Ty-Coch, a post office, chemist, and a large general store with deli all within walking distance. The medieval town Caernarfon is a few miles away, the Castle stands guard over the Menai - the place of the Prince of Wales Investiture, with museums and views over the Harbour and on into The Isle of the Angels. The Welsh Highland Railway is Snowdonia’s newest railway.Trains start a spectacular 25 mile scenic journey from beneath the castle walls at Caernarfon. The trains - hauled by the world's most powerful narrow gauge steam locomotives - climb from sea level to over 650ft on the foothills of Snowdon, before zig-zagging dramatically down the steep hillside to reach Portmadoc. Then take the Ffestiniog Railway on a 13½-mile journey from the harbour in Porthmadog to the slate-quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. These historic trains climb over 700 feet from sea level into the mountains through tranquil pastures and magnificent forests, past lakes and waterfalls. Or Go Karting for Kids old and young at GlasfrynParc. Horse Trekking at the Snowdonia Riding Stables, offering you superb riding amongst some of the best mountain and coastal scenery in the British Isles, whether you are a complete beginner or a competent rider. And did you know Surfing has really taken off in North Wales, with the big surf beaches of Abersoch, and Hells Mouth, lots of help through the summer with well organized expert tuition. Or just a fishing trip from Pwllheli, out into the bay to catch Tope, Bass or Bream. Cast from the beach for Mackeral and Pollock. BBQ gently on the beach with a large glass of wine. Climb Snowdon on a clear day for stunning views down the Llyn to Bardsey sound.
