The North Wales region
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.
Abersoch is a pretty seaside village on the South side of Llyn Peninsula, North West Wales. It's beaches and shore line run along Tremadog Bay which is a large inlet of Cardigan Bay which is defined by the Cambrian and Llyn coast.
Abersoch along with many other villages on the Llyn was mostly known as a small fishing hamlet before tourism took over. With the river Soch running into a small tidal bay it soon become popular with pleasure boating. Farming was and still does play an important part to the village.
Lead mining was another industry and the old shaft housing can be seen to the South of the main beach at the Penrhyn Du headland. During the second half of the nineteenth century two hundred and forty miners, dressers, washers and engine drivers were at work in the mines. Many of these workmen had come to work the mines from other regions with over half from Cornwall and Devon.
Over the last century Abersoch has changed dramatically with modern transport. Firstly the train came to Pwllheli, where people would take a horse and cart the five and a half miles to complete there journey to the village. Then came modern cars, and no longer was Abersoch out of the reach to the working man.

"A great house in a great location"
We rented the house at half term with the threat of the big storm heading our way across the Irish Sea. As ever, the threats were worse than reality and the weather was pretty good. The location of th… More
