The Gwynedd region

North Wales is the perfect holiday destination.

From the mountains of the Snowdon National Park which is a magnet for hikers and climbers. If the summit of Snowdon is too difficult for you to climb then go via Britain's only rack-and-pinion mountain railway train which takes you to the top where there is now a newly refurbished café and visitor centre.

To the Lleyn Peninsula where you will find; Iron Age hill forts, Neolithic tombs, standing stones as well as many beautiful sandy beaches. The beaches vary from vast expanses of soft, sand to tiny rocky coves. You can sit in a beachside pub, eat in a beach café, find an isolated cove or surf the waves. Bardsey Island, off the very tip of the Lleyn peninsula was once a place of pilgrimage and is now a simple boat trip away.

The Lleyn Coastal Path takes you past endless beaches and provides spectacular, panaromic views of the surrounding coast, taking in small villages along the way.

Take a step back in time and visit some castles, for example, Caernarfon, Conway, Criccieth, Dolwyddelan, Harlech and Penrhyn.


The Lleyn Peninsula is a very special, beautiful place. Once you have visited this part of Wales you will be sure to return. You will find some of the best sailing and surfing in North Wales.

Abersoch has a lovely harbour where people take to the sea in dinghies and yachts or have fun waterskiing and wakeboarding. Abersoch’s beautiful beach attracts families and the many restaurants provide a choice of dining scene. Take a fishing trip and catch some of the plentiful mackerel and sea bass. A visit to St Tudwal Islands will sometimes allow a viewing of seals or dolphins. The surfing beaches of Hell’s Mouth (Porth Neigwl) and Porth Ceriad are close by.

Aberdaron is an attractive small village with a pub that has a large terrace with open sea views. You can walk the coastal path along the headland to the tip of the Peninsula where you can view Bardsey Island and if you are lucky dolphins.

The Ty Coch Inn at Porth Dinllaen near Morfa Nefyn is a perfect place for lunch. It is one of the best located pubs in the UK. You can dip you toes in the sea while eating lunch and enjoying a drink.

Take a steam train from Porthmadog into the Snowdonia National Park.

Try one of the many golf courses at Abersoch, Nefyn, Pwllheli, Porthmadog or Royal St David’s.

Garnfadryn is a tiny village which is dominated by the Mountain of Garnfadryn. You can reach the top of Garnfadryn from Pencwmwl’s doorstep in 30 – 60 minutes depending on your level of fitness. The climb is worth it as you will be able to see the whole of the glorious Peninsula and on clear days you can see Holyhead at the end of Anglesey, across Cardigan Bay to Pembrokeshire and across the sea as far as Ireland, definitely worth the effort.

"Beautiful location - fantastic views and incredibly peaceful."

Lovely accommodation. Very clean and well finished. Beautiful location - fantastic views and incredibly peaceful. Very small garden was only gripe.

I’m really pleased to hear that you found Pencwmwl comfortable, clean, and peaceful and enjoyed the views. What a pity that you found the garden too small for your purposes. The two garden areas are excellent for BBQs and chilling out after a hard day on the beach. However, I do agree that it is unsuitable, if for example, eight guests fancy playing a 4 a-side football game. For future guests who would like an idea of the garden spaces that are available, you may wish to take a good look at the pictures on the website and view the video on You Tube, so you can make an informed decision as to whether Pencwmwl is the place for you.

"Excellent, well equipped cottage, great views in a quiet location"

The cottage exceeded our expectations - size, facilities, kitchen, dining and kids' games area were excellent. We went with friends and there was plenty of room for all of us. If you're looking for peace and quiet in comfort, with great views and nice outside area, this is the place for you. Centrally located on the Llyn Peninsular, the location is within range of all attractions - though you must have a car and a decent sense of direction!

"Very enjoyable stay"

We visited the cottage with friends so that we could do some walking on the LLyn Peninsula. The cottage is in a good central location to get around and has wonderful views. It is very peaceful and comfortable. A home from home!

"Fantastic, homely,amazing accomodation and location"

Pencwmwl is a beautiful home, relaxing but has absolutley everything and more that you need to entertain and keep three children of various ages busy. This property caters for your every need, the beds are so comfortable and what strikes you is the thought that has gone into making this home comfortable and welcoming. The property is so clean throughtout, the dishes are sparkling, all equipment is of high standard. The games room was a god send on rainy days and the evenings, we had DVD nights in the snug. What was a lovely suprise was found in the main bedroom behind the double mirrored doors was a walk in wardrobe and a television, we just thought it was really cute and lovely at night when the children had gone to sleep we could relax and watch the television in bed!! The views are truly beautiful and our little ones loved the lambs that come up to the fence at the front. We had a family barbeque which was fabulous as you had a choice whether to sit outside or sit in the conservatory looking at the view, beautiful. We couldnt recommend renting this property more, really you will love it. The location is great as you are in a short driving distance of Abersoch which we love. The couple who own the property are very helpful and cant do enough for you. Definantley be going again.

"Idyllic and tranquill base for beach holidays"

We spent Spring Bank 2012 at Pencwmwl. The house is off the beaten track but the owner could not have provided more helpful directions, which made finding the house like a treasure hunt. Upon arrival we were stunned by the fantastic views from every window, inside the house is very spacious and well equipped - there is even a nespresso machine! The house was very clean and welcoming. There are excellent facilities for entertaining, including a dining room which will comfortably accomodate 10, which was handy for the 30th birthday we held. Although it's off the beaten track, we were in Abersoch/Hell's Mouth within 20 mins - so it's very handy for the beach but still incredibly quiet. What made this place extra special were the little touches such as board games, books for the children, soap in the bathroom and a place to hang the wet suits. We have already booked for next year.

"Fantastic location"

The cottage is in a great location with fantastic views. It is well equipped and very comfortable. There is plenty of space and the games room was a very useful area for the children. The owner was extremely helpful and we particuarly appreciated the personal touches such as books/games for the children, soap in the bathrooms etc. We found lots to do in the area including the lovely walk up the hill behind the cottage. There are also some great beaches close by. All made for a very relaxing and enjoyable stay in the cottage thank you.

The cottage was set in a stunning location. We rented it with a group of friends and we all had young children. There always felt like there was plenty of room, even though at one point we were 8 people. The house is also sound proof which I know for us, with babies was a bonus. The owners were always extremely helpful before and after we stayed. There was everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. the surrounding area was beautiful to explore. We will definitely look at booking again and couldn't recommend it enough.

"What An absolute treat"

Beautiful scenery and not too far from the centre but car essential. There's a great taxi service nearby and the cottage has leaflets with lots of things to do. Nice location and wonderful on a starry night. We had fantastic weather and it was perfect for bbq'ing. Had a lot of fun, thanks!
