Walkers will be in their element with Snowdonia National Park on the doorstep, and the Welsh Coastal Path behind the cottages where fresh air and stunning scenery are waiting to be enjoyed. Beach-lovers may take their pick from golden sands along the Llyn Peninsula including Aberdaron, Morfa Nefyn and Hell's Mouth.

Within the extensive farmland there is a private lake, ponds and grassy wetlands which stretch across seven acres of land set aside for wildlife. You can be sure to enjoy a variety of wildlife in its natural habitat in ever-changing lighting conditions from dawn to dusk. A photographer's and artist's dream.

Further details

The cottages are available to guests all year around. They are lovely in the spring and summer months, and equally so in Autumn when the gorgeous rustic colours come out to play. When the snow falls, the farm is transformed into a winter wonderful. With our log fires and complementary kindling, rest-assured you can stay cosy and keep warm whilst enjoying the beautiful scenary.

We will respond promptly to any enquiries and take you through the booking and payment process. There is no charge for this service.

The cottages are rented out on a weekly basis (7 nights from Saturday 3.30pm to the following Saturday 10.30am) and the charge for each week can be found on the table.

Weekend bookings may be accepted on a last-minute basis or during the off-peak months. All bookings of less than 7 days duration will be charged at a daily rate (minimum booking is 3 days). See special offers or call the main contact to request a quote.

The cottage is mainly ground level, however, please be aware there are four steps up to the main bathroom.

Please note: There is a £8 heating allowance per day for each cottage. Any additional usage will be charged accordingly.

Further details indoors

The recently-refurbished Lavender cottage, comprises of a lounge with a wood-burning stove, kitchen and two bedrooms - one double bedroom with en-suite shower and another room with twin beds. Altogether, the cottage will sleep up to four persons.

The main bathroom is traditional in style with bath & overhead shower with underfloor heating. A single WC is also available on the ground floor.

With vaulted ceilings and old oak beams, pitch pine doors and wood burning stove, this is a very cosy cottage on those cooler autumnal & winter days.

Further details outdoors

As a guest of Gyrn Goch cottages, you are welcome to explore the private land at your leisure which extends across 37 acres. The land includes many green fields (a local farmer uses these for grazing sheep, so if you visit us in springtime you may be fortunate to see adorable new-born lambs), grassy wetlands, ponds and a beautiful lake (unfortunately there are limited fish, as the herons and cormorants enjoy dining out there whenever we attempt to replenish the stock).

This natural wetland area is separated from the cottages by fences and cattle grids. The green space has been set aside to encourage the natural vegetation and local wildlife to flourish and therefore has very little safety equipment and no safety rails. Entering this area is at your own risk and we ask guests to be particularly vigilant in this area of the farm, particularly with children. Please be aware that there is deep water in the lake. There is a small boat by the lake but again, this may only be used at your own risk.

Many of our guests choose to spend their days on the farm, enjoying the tranquillity and relaxing with a good book - all with the convenience of their cosy cottage and excellent self-catering facilities to hand. An outdoor bbq, chiminea and patio area allows guests to enjoy an evening meal outdoors as the sun sets over the sea. Outdoor games such as hula hoops & cricket bats to keep children occupied are provided in the cottage, as well as selection of fun board games to keep the family entertained on a rainy day.



Location description from owner

The North Wales region

The Llyn Peninsula and North Wales offer dramatic scenery, from rugged mountains (including the impressive trio known as 'The Rivals') and sheltered valleys to green fields and Blue Flag beaches. Wildlife flourishes in the lakes, streams and woodlands offering the opportunity to discover unusual flowers such as orchids or rare birds during a leisurely stroll or ramble.

The region also lies close to Snowdonia National Park which offers a wealth of activities including the chance to scale the mighty Snowdon (at 3560ft the highest peak in England and Wales) to mountain-biking, horse riding, sailing and white-water rafting as well as more relaxing ways to explore the raw beauty of the area such as the Snowdon Mountain Railway.

For those with an appreciation for architecture, there are many impressive Welsh castles a short drive away, including those at Harlech, Caernarfon & Criccieth. Local towns and golden beaches in North Wales including Trefor, Morfa Nefyn & Abersoch are lovely spots to have a paddle or an ice-cream and can be easily reached by car, or on foot in the case of Trefor.

Many guests choose to drive over to Anglesey for a day. The isle offers many attractions including the beautiful Beaumaris Castle, Anglesey Sea Zoo (ideal on a rainy day) and Anglesey Model Village & Gardens - and, of course, has the notoriety of being home to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge until recently. Country pub lunches and boat trips are just some of the leisurely ways to enjoy the island.

There are plenty of ways to keep restless children happy in this region of North Wales including Dwyfor Ranch rabbit and animal farm at Criccieth, Gypsy Wood in Caernarfon (think wetland welly walks and picnics) and Glasfryn Parc activity centre (archery, go-karting and ten-pin bowling are amongst the activities offered) near Pwllheli.

If you prefer to simply relax or read a book in peaceful surroundings, the ample private land around the cottages allows the luxury of this without having to travel. The weather can be dramatic at times. There may be sunny days with clear blue skies and horizontal rain an hour later, especially in the spring and autumn. This makes for some stunning sunsets. Have your camera or paintbrush to hand to capture the magic.


Other attractions of North Wales within easy reach by car include...
The Sygun Copper Mine at Beddgelert (winner of the Prince of Wales tourism award),
The Airworld Aviation Museum at Caernarfon Airport,
Electric Mountain Visitor Centre at Llamberis,
The Ropeworks (zip wires and climbing walls for high-energy adults and children).

Gyrngoch

Turn right out of the farm gate and two minutes down the A499 you will reach Glynllifon Park, which is home to around 3,000 rare species of trees. This Natural Heritage site is a great day out and offers something of interest for everybody including gardens, a tree trail, craft workshops, cafe and steam engine (restored by the English steeplejack & TV personality Fred Dibnah).

There are many beautiful Welsh beaches just a few minutes westward along the coast by car. These are all listed and photographed on our website www.gyrngoch-cottages.com. Arm yourself with an Ordnance Survey map to discover the footpaths and shortcuts.

Many pubs offer good food and a pleasant place to rest. The Goat Inn is around a twenty minute drive from the cottage and is a popular choice. Guests often choose to enjoy a pub lunch whilst sightseeing during the day, before retiring to the farm to enjoy a relaxing evening in their cottage - perhaps with a glass of red wine and a roaring log fire. Whilst pubs and restaurants are within easy reach by car from Ystumllech farm, part of the attraction of the cottages is that they are surrounded by acres of beautiful Welsh countryside and therefore local pubs are not within close walking distance.

“Wish we could have stayed all summer!”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2013

We had two splendid weeks, with very good weather, in Lavender Cottage. The cottage and the rest of the property was beautiful, peaceful and clean. Would love to have a cottage of that for ourselves! The owners are very welcoming, helpful and kind. The area is very interesting to explore, with beautiful beaches, great castles, vivid villages and Snowdonia within easy reach. Met some wonderfully nice people too. Would recommend it to all my friends and family and we certainly hope to be back in the future!
