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.
