Situated in the Llyn Peninsula Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), Ysgubor Bach stands alone half way between the historic village of Aberdaron and the beautiful beach at Porth Oer (Whistling Sands). Dating from 1748 it is a traditional stone built former farmhouse with exposed beams and real fires that has been recently renovated to a high standard and tastefully furnished, yet retains its homely atmosphere.

It is approximately 3/4 mile from local shops, cafes, public houses and beaches and an ideal location for those wishing to get away from it all and be within easy access to all amenities. There are a number of great golf courses nearby including that of Nefyn Golf Club sited on the cliffs above Porth Dinlaen some 15 miles away.

About this location

The Gwynedd region

The village of Aberdaron lies at the tip of the Ll?n Peninsula.The village is within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as well as Heritage Coastline.

There has been a place of Christian worship at the edge of the sea at Aberdaron since the fifth century. It's well worth a visit to St Hywyn's Church as the many pilgrim groups that visit to experience the beauty and peace of the area have found. Aberdaron was the last stop before the pilgrims traveled across the sea to Bardsey Island, famous for being known as the island of 20,000 saints.

"Lovely cottage, great rural location with fantastic views"

This was our second year back to Ysgubor Bach and, once again, we were
very happy with our choice. The cottage is in a great location. Less
than a mile from Whistling Sands. A beautiful, quite rural location with
fantastic views. Irina had cleaned and laid out the cottage as
beautifully as ever and was so helpful when one of our kids managed to
block the toilet. The cottage is always warm and the wood burning stove
is a bonus. We had some family stay with us at the beginning of the week
for a couple of days and then some friends for a couple of days at the
end of the week. They all commented on how comfortable and lovely the
cottage is. They said 'how did you find this little gem?'
The weather was great - sunny most days, just one day of rain. We all
felt so relaxed when we left on Saturday. Will definitely be booking
again for next year. We were even at the epicentre of an earthquake one
night and, although we felt the beds moving, the cottage is so sturdy
with such thick walls that not even a single plate fell off the wall!
There is a lovely big garden for the kids to run around in.
Thank you to Irina and Simon
