Property type cottage

About the property

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.

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 Lleyn Peninsula

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!

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.

Relaxing and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.

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.
