About this location
The Gwynedd region
The Llyn, or Lleyn as the English often spell it, is sometimes known as the edge of Wales and if you like walking on the edge you will love the Llyn peninsula with it's wide variety of activity holidays. But if your preference is a quiet seaside holiday then fear not as the Llyn offers a great range of holidays and places to visit, from historic sites, peaceful harbour villages, fantastic countryside and beautiful beaches.
You will find the Llyn on the map to the west of Snowdonia, ........the long finger of land pointing toward Ireland. The towns of Criccieth, Pwllheli, and Abersoch and the smaller villages and seaside resorts such as Aberdaron, Nefyn, Porth Dinllaen offer a wide range of accommodation, whether you are seeking self catering cottage accommodation or serviced hotel accommodation. Many cottages are to be found in isolated locations on the hills and valleys of the Llyn ....ideal bases for walking this beautiful landscape, and where ever you stay on this narrow strip of land you are never far from the clear blue seas or the rolling green hills.
10 minutes drive from Rhiw is Aberdaron, a community and former fishing village at the western tip of the Llyn Peninsula. It is sometimes referred to as the "Land's End of Wales" (Welsh: Pendraw'r Byd). The community includes Bardsey Island (Welsh: Ynys Enlli), the coastal area around Porthoer, and the villages of Anelog, Llanfaelrhys, Penycaerau, Rhoshirwaun, Rhydlios, Uwchmynydd and Y Rhiw.
The village was the last rest stop for pilgrims heading to Bardsey Island, the legendary "island of 20,000 saints". I strongly recommend a day trip to this wonderful island to sample its beauty and tranquillity.
In the 18th and 19th centuries it developed as a shipbuilding centre and port. The mining and quarrying industries became major employers, and limestone, lead, jasper and manganese were exported, and there are the ruins of an old pier running out to sea at Porth Simdde, which is the local name for the west end of Aberdaron Beach. After the Second World War the mining industry collapsed, and Aberdaron gradually developed into a popular holiday resort. The beach was awarded a Seaside Award in 2008.
The coast itself forms part of the Aberdaron Coast and Bardsey Island Special Protection Area and was designated a Heritage Coast in 1974. In 1956 the area was included in Llyn Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Conservation Areas have been created in Aberdaron, Bardsey Island and Y Rhiw and the area has been designated a Landscape of Historic Interest.
Things to do
The Llyn Peninsula is one of Wales' finest Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers the chance to escape the ever increasing hustle and bustle of modern day life. The rolling and often dramatic landscape of Llyn runs down into sweeping sandy beaches, hidden coves and rocky cliffs along a coastline of nearly 100 miles which has a charm unique to this corner of Wales. A walk up one of the hills of Llyn offers spectacular views across Cardigan Bay to the south, Anglesey to the north and even the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland to the west. Plus there's always a cosy pub or tea shop to relax in afterwards!
To view the stunning scenery of the Llyn Peninsula visit the Llyn Light website - http://www.llynlight.co.uk
Below is a list of just a selection of the places to visit in the area during your stay.
There are some 19 sandy beaches along the coast of Llyn, all of which are accessible to families and only one or two require a walk of more than 5 minutes from your car.
Off the beaten track
One of the main attractions of Llyn is the walking from an easy track with a pram to the more demanding climbs to seek out amazing views.
Rainy Day activities
The climate is very temperate on Llyn but it can of course rain sometimes. From the Ffestiniog Railway to Anglesey Sea Zoo there are thankfully a lot of options to occupy the kids in the rain these days. Gone are the days of sitting around playing scrabble and waiting for the weather to change!
For Children of all ages there Greenwood Forest Park and Anglsey Sea Zoo to vist. For younger children Foel Farm Park, Henblas Parc and Llanystumdwy Rabbit Farm are great fun.
Nant Gwrtheyrn Welsh Language Centre and Glynllifon Park offer local culture and art suitable for a sunny or rainy day. Portmeirion Village is also a favourite.
Among the many reasons for visiting Llyn is the high quality of sporting opportunities. There are several stunningly beautiful golf courses,the nearest just 15 minutes drive away.
Other sporting activities in the area include
Sailing in Pwllheli and Abersoch
Wakeboarding, canoeing, surfing and windsurfing at Pwllheli and Abersoch
Boat Trips, both pleasure trips and fishing including a day trip to Bardsey Island
Walking, hiking and rock climbing across the Peninsula and in Snowdonia
Cycling along our network of gorgeous country lanes marked out by ancient hedgerow
Diving at Porth Ysgaden and various other parts of coastline which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest
Fishing. There are plenty places either from the rocky shore for black bream and pollack or on the beach for bass and flatfish
Horseriding at Llanbedrog on the road to Abersoch.
Archery in Llanbedrog.
Wildlife and Bird watching
If you value watching wildlife, there is a spectacular amount to see and do in the immediate area around Tan Y Llan. By way of illustration, at Morfa Nefyn you are likely to see stonechat, oystercatcher, cormorant, greater black backed gull and grey seal. At Pwllheli you will see grey heron, curlew, snipe, redshank and other waders. Near Aberdaron you might catch sight of fulmar, manx shearwater and chough. At Abersoch you will often see harbour porpoises and bottlenose dolphins. Venture into Snowdonia and witness the majestic sight of the raven and red kite; and don't forget the Osprey in the Glaslyn Valley, which you can witness bringing fish to the nest via a telescope. You can even see puffins at South Stack and the RSPB is about to open its first venture on the Peninsula with a reserve at nearby Trefor. All in all this really is a spectacular place if you enjoy the natural world.
Strongly reccommended is a day trip to Bardsey Island (Ynys Enlli).
On top of all this, the coastline of Llyn is so well protected, free from trawlers and maintained by the National Trust in part, that you will see an abundance of life in its thousands of rock pools. Make the most of this by walking all or part of the completed Llyn Coastal path, an adventure for which Tan Y Llan provides an idyllic base.
Heritage and Sightseeing
This part of Wales has a huge amount to see on top of all the naturally occurring attractions. For example, Wales has the highest concentration of castles in Europe and four of them in this part of the country are World Heritage Sites.
Conwy, Caernarfon, Harlech, Criccieth and Penrhyn are just a few of the castles in the area, and Plas Yn Rhiw, Craflwyn, Plas Newydd, and Bodnant Gardens are also unmissable.
Festivals and Special Events
The county of Gwynedd now boasts world class events from the fast growing “Wakestock” weekend of wakeboarding to international sailing regattas at Pwllheli, surfing championships at Porth Neigwl and championship standard golf tournaments at Nefyn and Harlech.
The Abersoch jazz festival and Local and regional farm shows (from the Tudweiliog show to the famous Anglesey show) are also staged in the area.
827 square miles of glacial landscape, abundant rivers, lakes and waterfalls, flora and fauna, wildlife, pretty villages, welcoming pubs and stunning views. That's if you can drag yourselves away from the beach.

"Perfect peace and relaxation off the beaten track"
Had a little trouble locating the drive for the property, but that is no reflection on the property. Bags of space and just a unique and interesting place to stay - appears to be ideal for large group… More
Thank you Marie and Paul :) so glad you had a lovely time. My best wishes to you. Douglas
