The North Wales / Snowdonia/Gwynedd region
North Wales is the perfect holiday destination.
From the mountains of the Snowdon National Park which is a magnet for hikers and climbers. If the summit of Snowdon is too difficult for you to climb then go via Britain's only rack-and-pinion mountain railway train which takes you to the top where there is now a newly refurbished café and visitor centre.
To the Lleyn Peninsula where you will find; Iron Age hill forts, Neolithic tombs, standing stones as well as many beautiful sandy beaches. The beaches vary from vast expanses of soft, sand to tiny rocky coves. You can sit in a beachside pub, eat in a beach café, find an isolated cove or surf the waves. Bardsey Island, off the very tip of the Lleyn peninsula was once a place of pilgrimage and is now a simple boat trip away.
The Lleyn Coastal Path takes you past endless beaches and provides spectacular, panaromic views of the surrounding coast, taking in small villages along the way.
Take a step back in time and visit some castles, for example, Caernarfon, Conway, Criccieth, Dolwyddelan, Harlech and Penrhyn.
The Abersoch / Garnfadryn area
The Lleyn Peninsula is a very special, beautiful place. Once you have visited this part of Wales you will be sure to return. You will find some of the best sailing and surfing in North Wales.
Abersoch has a lovely harbour where people take to the sea in dinghies and yachts or have fun waterskiing and wakeboarding. Abersoch’s beautiful beach attracts families and the many restaurants provide a choice of dining scene. Take a fishing trip and catch some of the plentiful mackerel and sea bass. A visit to St Tudwal Islands will sometimes allow a viewing of seals or dolphins. The surfing beaches of Hell’s Mouth (Porth Neigwl) and Porth Ceriad are close by.
Aberdaron is an attractive small village with a pub that has a large terrace with open sea views. You can walk the coastal path along the headland to the tip of the Peninsula where you can view Bardsey Island and if you are lucky dolphins.
The Ty Coch Inn at Porth Dinllaen near Morfa Nefyn is a perfect place for lunch. It is one of the best located pubs in the UK. You can dip you toes in the sea while eating lunch and enjoying a drink.
Take a steam train from Porthmadog into the Snowdonia National Park.
Try one of the many golf courses at Abersoch, Nefyn, Pwllheli, Porthmadog or Royal St David’s.
Garnfadryn is a tiny village which is dominated by the Mountain of Garnfadryn. You can reach the top of Garnfadryn from Pencwmwl’s doorstep in 30 – 60 minutes depending on your level of fitness. The climb is worth it as you will be able to see the whole of the glorious Peninsula and on clear days you can see Holyhead at the end of Anglesey, across Cardigan Bay to Pembrokeshire and across the sea as far as Ireland, definitely worth the effort.

We visited the cottage with friends so that we could do some walking on the LLyn Peninsula. The cottage is in a good central location to get around and has wonderful views. It is very peaceful and comfortable. A home from home!

Pencwmwl is a beautiful home, relaxing but has absolutley everything and more that you need to entertain and keep three children of various ages busy.
This property caters for your every need, the beds are so comfortable and what strikes you is the thought that has gone into making this home comfortable and welcoming.
The property is so clean throughtout, the dishes are sparkling, all equipment is of high standard.
The games room was a god send on rainy days and the evenings, we had DVD nights in the snug.
What was a lovely suprise was found in the main bedroom behind the double mirrored doors was a walk in wardrobe and a television, we just thought it was really cute and lovely at night when the children had gone to sleep we could relax and watch the television in bed!!
The views are truly beautiful and our little ones loved the lambs that come up to the fence at the front.
We had a family barbeque which was fabulous as you had a choice whether to sit outside or sit in the conservatory looking at the view, beautiful.
We couldnt recommend renting this property more, really you will love it.
The location is great as you are in a short driving distance of Abersoch which we love.
The couple who own the property are very helpful and cant do enough for you.
Definantley be going again.

There were 7 of us (inc 2 young children) and it was exactly what we'd hoped for. Spacious, modern and well equipped. There's also a gamesroom with pool table, table tennis, dartboard and... more
