Hafan (Haven) is a recently renovated family run holiday cottage available to rent for the first time this year. Perched in the picture post card village of Aberdaron, on the very tip of the Lleyn Peninsular, Hafan sleeps six and has ample off road parking for cars and boats. Hafan is available all year round. Sorry, no pets and no smoking.
Hafan is set safely off the quiet Deunant road with unspoilt views over the village to the Gwilan Islands and out to Cardigan Bay. With a well kept garden, patio and half an acre of wild bracken welsh hillside, its just a three minute walk down to the safe sandy beach and village. Most rooms, including the lounge, dining room and both upstairs bedrooms have sea views and Hafan is centrally heated with an additional wood burning stove in the lounge.
The ambiance is light and summary with solid Oak floors in the lounge, original pine floors in the dining room and original unspoilt quarry tiles in the kitchen. Both the bathroom and shower room have stylish modern fittings (waterfall style taps) and lovely warm travertine tiling. As well as two bedrooms and a wc upstairs, there is also a ground floor double bedroom and wc/shower room making Hafan suitable for restricted mobility guests.
Outside, there is a neat garden with a patio and picnic table overlooking the sea and village and a lawn terrace which also overlooks the sea and village.
Hafan is simply a beautiful Welsh sea-side cottage.

The Lleyn Peninsular is Wales' north West coastal region stretching from the great mountains of Snowdonia in the East to the tip of ancient Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Isalnd) in the West. Surrounded by the Irish Sea and Cardigan bay, the peninsular has fantastic coastal features and of course wonderful beaches including, Porth Oer with its famous whistling sands, (yes they really do whistle!) and the National Trusts Porth Ysgo and Porth Colmon. Some of the best surfing in Wales can be experienced at Hells Mouth and Aberdaron, Abersoch and Nefyn all have wonderful family sandy beaches.
Come away from the sea, which is difficult to do, and the landscape is divided into a patchwork of fields with the traditional stone walls and hedgerows farmed in an un hurried by gone fashion. Its quiet rural nature allows unusual and not often seen wildlife to flourish. Rare Choughs are easily spotted in the West and Ospreys, Buzzards and other spectacular birds all inhabit the land. The National Trust owns and protects large areas of hillside and is soon set to build a visitor centre of Excellence in Aberdaron..
Popular boating towns, such as Pwllheli, Nefyn and Abersoch all offer sailing and the Welsh Highland Steam railway sets off from Porthmadog right into the mountains of Snowden. The famous and unique village of Portmeirion and its Italian styled buildings hangs onto the side of Cardigan Bay and not far away from the guardian of the peninsular, the 13th Century Criccieth Castle.
If you need a break from the seaside, then peninsular is a walkers paradise, with mountains, moorlands and the National Coastal paths offering some of the best walking and cycling in the country. Golfers are well catered for with the spectacular cliff top course at Nefyn and beautiful Abersoch and opportunities for sea fishing are plentiful.
Aberdaron is a quiet, picture postcard former fishing village nestling on the very tip of the Lleyn Peninsula known as the 'Welsh Lands End'. Once the last stopping place for Pilgrims visiting Bardsey Island, the village is now quietly relaxing into a gem of an unspoilt Welsh seaside village.
Cafes selling family caught crabs and two pubs providing fine sea food menus complimenting nearby bustling towns of Abersoch and Pwellhi.
Wonderfully unspoilt, Aberdaron never the less has all the facilities you will need including a fish and chip shop, news agents, a Spar and gift shops.
However, the real Jewel in Aberdarons crown is the blue flagged mile long sandy beach. Safe and sheltered, the beach is perfect for families or water sport enthusiast who can sometimes share the waters with occasional porpoise and seal visitors. Alternativly, why not just soak up the sun with a drink from the beach side hotel and watch the boats sailing in the bay which is also a frequent stopping off point for visitng yachts to set anchor, come ashore and share the delights of this beautiful, hidden spot.
