The North Wales region
Snowdonia is justifiably well known for its fine mountains whilst the enchanting Llyn peninsula is the place to come for fine sandy beaches. But there's more to this penisula than you'd think: the coast walks include spectacular cliff scenery with small seabird colonies in the summer. And Llyn has its own mountains too, many crowned by well-preserved Iron Age hill forts and some rising sheer out of the Irish Sea. A pilgrims' route runs along the north coast, ending at Aberdaron from where the pilgrims would take a boat across the holy island of Ynys Enlli or Bardsey.
Llangybi is a village which is conveniently central for the Llyn beaches and coastal walks whilst the big mountains of Snowdonia lie not far to the east. The village is surrounded by farmland - including our own. It is overlooked by a rocky hill - Garn Bentyrch - which gives fine views in all directions, including right down to south Wales on clear days. It takes about half an hour to walk up it from Gwyndy and less than half that to visit St Cybi's holy well which is at the bottom of the hill. Here, people would come to take the healing waters which emerge in a powerful spring behind the stone well building. It tastes delicious. Gwyndy and Mur Crusto farm lie down a 300-metre track, well away from the public road. We can see all the western Snowdonia mountains including Snowdon itself.

"A delightful rural retreat on the stunning Llyn Peninsula - The Good Life!"
I recently enjoyed an extended stay of six weeks in Gwyndy Cottage. I had been looking for a peaceful rural retreat and couldn't have picked a better spot. The cottage is on a working small-holding of 13 acres, which I felt I had to myself – my own idyllic spot.
The cottage is very comfortable and well-equipped, and very spacious compared to other cottages I have stayed in. The open-plan layout and double-height ceiling makes the inside of the cottage quite impressive. It was winter when I stayed, and so the log-burning stove was perfect for the cold evenings. You can buy wood from the owners, and so all you have to do is cross the yard to the stables. I slept so well during my whole stay, not doubt due to how relaxing the whole experience was, and how cosy it was with the fire burning. The views from the conservatory on a clear day are lovely – from Snowdon in the distance, all the way along the coast. On a cloudless night, the lack of light pollution means the view of the stars can take your breath away.
Whilst I was looking for somewhere peaceful and tucked away while I worked on a writing project, I've spent quite a bit of time on the Llyn peninsula and it's a fantastic place if you love to get out and about and explore. The beaches and the coast are stunning, and if you enjoy walking, the views from any of the heights are amazing. There are lots of places for families too, and it is only a short distance to the heart of Snowdonia to the east. If you do love the outdoors, the enormous entrance porch on the cottage is ideal for muddy boots – you'll have plenty of room for storage.
Val and Bryan are very welcoming, and I felt at home immediately. Although they are unobtrusive, they are on hand straight-away if you need any help. The only problem with staying at Gwyndy is that once you get a taste for the good life, you won't want to go home again.
