Rose Cottage is the perfect bolt hole from which to explore the Llyn Peninsula with its idyllic beaches and countryside.
We are ideally located for Abersoch, Aberdaron, Criccieth, Llanbedrog, Nefyn, Pwllheli and Porthmadog and the stunning 84 mile Llyn Coastal Path. With numerous historic and scenic attractions close by including Snowdonia National Park, Ffestiniog Railway, Welsh Highland Railway, Caernarfon, Criccieth and Harlech Castles, and the Italianate village of Portmeirion there are plenty of activities to enjoy a holiday at any time of year.
The cottage has 2 ground floor bedrooms and one attic room. The main pretty double bedroom has a king size brass bed, and en-suite shower room with washbasin and WC. The second ground floor twin room is adjacent to the bathroom. The third single room is accessed by steep, ladder-like stairs which lead to the attic where there is a sweet single bedroom with limited headroom - just the place to relax with a book. Cots are available on request and towels are supplied at an additional £5 per person.
The cosy living room includes an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, 2 large sofas, bespoke furniture, colour-tv / dvd and video player with freeview channels, books, hi-fi, dvd's, games and magazines. The kitchen/diner is fully equipped ( high chairs on request).
We are currently in the process of updating our internet facilities but in the mean time wifi is available from the nearby office building exclusively for us by guests. As we are in a very rural location we do advise that internet connection can sometimes be intermittent.
Outside enjoy a bbq in your own small cottage garden or take a woodland walk around the Glasfryn estate.
Pets are welcome - provided dogs are kept on a lead.
A local produce hamper, with provisions for a full English breakfast for the duration of your stay is available for £25.
Home-made meals can also be sourced from our farm shop.
The house is available as of 4 pm on the Friday. We kindly ask guests to vacate by 10 am on the morning of departure.

The Gwynedd region
Plas Glasfryn is a beautiful mansion house situated in the Llyn Peninsula. For generations this has been the home of the Williams-Ellis family.
In 1994, Jonathan and Helen Williams-Ellis began to develop Glasfryn Activity Park, which is now one of Wales' best family attractions.
All five cottages are situated on the estate and each have their own private gardens tended by Tilly Jones, the gardener with a little help from her Scottie dog, Huxley.
We're great dog lovers here at Glasfryn and welcome guests who want to bring their pets with them on holiday.
All five Glasfryn cottages are situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The magnificent landscape of Snowdonia and the coastline of Cardigan Bay are easily accessible, so whether it's a day on the beach or a hike to a magical waterfall, the choice is yours.
The Llyn Peninsula is a wild landscape of unspoilt natural scenery, ringed by a stunning coastline. This is great walking country and in its entirety the Llyn Coastal Path is 146km or 84 miles long, extending from Caernarfon along the north Llyn coast to Uwchmynydd and then to Porthmadog. The scenery is varied: small coves and wide expanses of sand, rugged cliffs and ever changing seas.
From Glasfryn, the walk to the iron age hill fort of Tre'r Ceiri is less than a 10 minute drive away. Another enchanting spot is St Cybi's well, a healing well of immense charm and atmosphere.
Access is easy to the sandy beaches and rocky inlets of the Peninsula (again a 10 minute hop in the car).
The small market town of Pwllheli with its award winning marina & blue flag beach is 4 miles away. There are shops, cafes and restaurants aplenty plus a cinema, public library and leisure centre. Abersoch is 10 miles away and Criccieth, Porthmadog, Aberdaron and Nefyn are all within easy reach.
There are numerous historic and scenic attractions such as the Snowdonia National Park, Ffestiniog Steam Railway, Welsh Highland Steam Railway, Caernarfon, Criccieth and Harlech Castles and the Italianate village of Portmeirion designed by Clough Williams-Ellis, a family forebear.
