The North Wales region

Croeso (a warm Welsh welcome) to the Llyn Peninsula, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Llyn retains a unique Welsh charm and character that is still as strong as ever. The peninsula also enjoys a unique micro climate, benefiting from the gulf stream, bringing warmer sea temperatures and weather.

The Llyn Peninsula lies on the north-west corner of Wales, dividing Cardigan Bay (to the south) and Caernarfon Bay (to the north). Being three sides surrounded by the sea, you are never short of a sheltered beach and the climate is relatively mild with few or no frost in the winter. To the east are the mountains of Snowdonia, the highest mountain range in the UK south of the Scottish Highlands.

The peninsula stretches out around 30 miles into the Irish Sea and is only around 8 miles wide for much of it's length. Being west of the Welsh mountains and in the Gulf Stream, Llyn enjoys a mild, drier climate than that of the rest of Wales. During the winter there are few or no frosts, but the snow on the mountains in the distance is a beautiful sight.

Around the peninsula's nearly 100 miles of coastline, there are sweeping bays, small coves and rocky cliffs as well as islands, reefs (like Sarn Badrig in northern Cardigan Bay) and impressive headlands. Inland, the rolling countryside, hills and small communities all have a story to tell - and there are people all around ready to tell them.

The peninsula has it's own range of hills, the most prominent of which is in the north east, where the sharp peaks of Yr Eifl form the highest point on the peninsula at 564 metres high and even more sharply slope down into the waters of Caernarfon Bay below. The former miners village of Nant Gwrtheyrn is set amongst this sort of backdrop and is now the National Language and Heritage Centre for Wales. Here, people with absolutely no Welsh at all can learn and those that already know a bit can brush up on their skills.

Pwllheli is the main town for the peninsula, with it's bustling weekly market it is the centre of the community here on Llyn. Other main settlements include Aberdaron, Abersoch, Criccieth, Nefyn and Porthmadog.


Y Rhiw is a hilltop community overlooking the tip of the peninsula, with Cardigan Bay to the south and Caernarfon Bay to the north, on a clear day views extend as far as the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland.

Y Rhiw (just Rhiw as it is known by most) offers plenty of excellent walking across the hill on which it stands - Mynydd Rhiw. The summit is characterised by it's mast and in the late summer, it's carpet of colourful heather. This close knit community is around 3 miles from Aberdaron and nearly 12 miles from Pwllheli.

On the southern slopes of the hill is Plas-yn-Rhiw, now a National Trust property. This small manor house overlooks Porth Neigwl and has an interesting past, which can be explored inside the building and perhaps followed by a picnic in it's wonderful gardens.

The local area provides a whole host of different activities for those who are on holiday and for those who are not!
