Cottage in Mynydd Nefyn, North Wales - Situated 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 dell, ample car parking, surrounded by water falls and ancient streams, 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 along the side of the stream down to the beach – no more than 10 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. Spoilt for choice. North towards the Rivals, and you could be in Switzerland, or South towards Bardsey, and the Island of Saints.

Relaxing and peaceful
We arrived and were immediately enchanted - it was a lovely house with fantastic views . It was very clean and well equipped . It is perfectly laid out inside with plenty of 'living' space and lots of space outdoors, it was like a home from home . Great walks to the beach , good shops in Nefyn and Morfa Nefyn - and good local pubs to get dinner . We will return next year.

We stayed here for one week during September, and were extremely fortunate to enjoy the beautiful Indian Summer. The cottage occupied an elevated position with uninterrupted views of the sea. We and our dogs enjoyed fantastic walks directly from the cottage, taking in the splendid coastal views in either direction as we walked. Only 10 minutes walk to the village and the beach. An ideal base to explore the surrounding areas such as Portmadoc, Caernarfon, Ffestiniog Railway etc. The cottage itself was lovely, having a large family kitchen and a cozy lounge, useful two bathrooms - choice of bath or shower. Fully equipped for all your needs, including lots of games, books, an excellent selection of dvd's, even buckets and spades for the kids. The garden and grounds were beautiful - we sat for hours gazing out to sea whilst listening to the birds singing. We all slept very peacefully in the comfy beds. All in all very Highly Recommended and suitable for families of all ages, groups of friends or couples.
Stunningly beautiful and Well equipped
We have searched for years to find the perfect holiday cottage for our family of three children aged 5, 7 and 11 and our Border Collie, that has everything we need. Enough space for us all, enclosed garden and rural (a home from home) and walking distance to the beach. Tucked away in this beautiful part of Wales we can now stop the search.
Jen and Chris have got the perfect place here with everything you could want. Their attention to detail is fantastic. Everywhere is spotless and clean which is always a bonus! The children enjoyed playing in the garden and field and there were great walks for us all right from the cottage.
The views are amazing, you can sit outside for hours just looking out over the water. A lovely tranquil and relaxing place to be.
We have already booked our week for next summer and look forward to making many more memories over the years as we return.
Thank you Chris and Jen for sharing this little piece of heaven.

Activity and Interests
Beaches to sunbath on - a 10 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.
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.
