Lovely cottage in a great area for beaches, mountains and biking. Slightly terrifying lane to drive up to the house but great views and right on the coast path. Very nicely decorated and fitted out with a good outside storage area for wetsuits/ bikes etc. Only criticism is a lack of drying facilities if it’s a wet week, but we had s great time. I recommend mountain biking at coed y brenin and walking the northern rhynogs as well as all the great stuff on offer on the peninsular
Ty'n y Mynydd is a white washed stone old cottage tucked in to the hillside nearly 300 feet above sea level with magnificent views across the bay. The cottage is secluded up a very narrow country lane with no passing traffic, ensuring a peaceful away from it all holiday ...
The interior is in keeping with the character of the cottage - there are slate floors and country style furniture in the well equipped kitchen. The thick stone walls and a log burner make sure the cottage is warm and cosy. The main bedroom is on ground floor level and is comfortable. The second bedroom - the 'crog'- has bags of charm .... It can be found up a set of wooden stairs but be warned - access for a tall person is not easy; one needs to be bent almost double to get under the beam in the doorway ...
The outside space is a real bonus ... there is a spacious grassed area and a patio where a cool glass of wine can be enjoyed whilst watching some magnificent sunsets as the sun disappears over the horizon after a day out exploring the delights of the Llyn Peninsula.
There is also an adjoining field which is home to two delightful Shetland ponies.
Our party of four adults had a great week in this cottage exploring some exceptional coastal scenery in this relatively quiet part of Wales... a walk across the rocky promontory of Porthdinllaen (NT) to the Ty Coch Inn for refreshments is a must; visiting the majestic Caernarvon Castle; walks along the beaches at Abersoch and Criccieth and Llanbedrog (NT) can be recommended but the highlights of the week were days out on the Welsh Highland Railway and a visit to Bardsey Island - well worth the expense ...
A getaway week away from the real world, in this delightful location, was just what the doctor ordered ...!
A beautiful old cottage in a stunning location. Approached via a narrow country lane climbing to over 270 feet, but worth it for the views across the bay to Nefyn & Morfa Nefyn. The cottage is well furnished and comfortable with central heating and a log-burner (which we didn't need to use). Kitchen is small but well equipped with additional facilities in the adjoining washroom. The location right on the Coastal Path is relatively secluded and very peaceful.
A great place to spend a holiday on this beautiful peninsular.
