Beach-lovers will be able to take their pick from golden sands along the Llyn Peninsula including Aberdaron, Morfa Nefyn and Hell's Mouth.

Within the farmland there is a private lake, ponds and 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 for rental 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 wonderland. 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.

This cottage has stairs to reach all bedrooms on the upper floor, which may limit access to guests with disabilities.

Please note: There is a heating allowance for each cottage of £8 per day. Any electricity used over that will be charged accordingly.

Further details indoors

The recently-refurbished Rosemary cottage, comprises of a lounge with a log-burning stove, kitchen and three bedrooms - one master double bedroom with en-suite shower, another double bedroom and a third bedroom with twin beds. Altogether, the cottage will sleep up to six persons.

The main bathroom is traditional in style with free-standing bath and underfloor heating. A double shower room is also available on the upper level, plus separate WC and hand basin on the ground floor. A utility room houses a washing machine.

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 lush 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), wetlands, ponds and a lake with a small central island. While the lake is very beautiful, 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, enjoy 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 and patio area allows guests to enjoy an evening meal outdoors as the sun sets over the sea. Games to keep children occupied are provided in the cottage, as well as selection of 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 have a wonderful variety of wildlife and scenery on the doorstep. Walkers & nature enthustiasts will be in their element with Snowdonia National Park close by.

If you're looking to enjoy the many gorgeous beaches, you can drive in a south-westerly direction along the Llyn Peninsula strip and take your pick from Morfa Nefyn, Hell's Mouth and Aberdaron. Images can be seen in our photo gallery at www.gyrngoch-cottages.com.

The historical aspects of the region can also be explored, particularly in the many Welsh castles which formed strategic placements in days gone by. Castles at Caernarfon, Cricieth, Harlech and Beaumaris on Anglesey are all popular attractions.

The weather across the region can be very dramatic - sunny and bright with clear blue skies and horizontal rain an hour later, especially in the spring and autumn. This makes for some stunning sunsets, so grab your camera to capture the magic.

Most popular attractions are within a 30-40 minute drive from Gyrn Goch Cottages.

Please view our smaller sister cottage, Lavender Cottage, for additional details of the region or visit our website www.gyrngoch-cottages.com

Gyrngoch

The Welsh Coastal Path lies a short way up the mountain just behind the cottages and, depending on the time of year and the growth of bracken, can be conveniently joined at this point. The impressive mountain trio known as The Rivals dominates the skyline and can be tackled by experienced walkers. Views from the summit are rewarding and can reach as far as the Isle of Man & The Wicklow Mountains of Ireland on a clear day. An Ordnance Survey map is a useful way for walkers to discover other footpaths and shortcuts in the local area.

For sunshine and sand, the closest beach to Gyrn Goch cottages is Trefor, a short 5-minute drive away from the farm. The sun sets over the sea and picturesque pink and blue skies of Trefor Pier can be admired from the land around the cottages. Views photographed and kindly shared by our guests can be seen on our own website www.gyrngoch-cottages.com.

Turn right out of the farm gate and two-minutes drive down the A499 you will find the National Heritage site of Glynllifon Park. The park is home to around 3,000 rare species of trees and is a safe habitat for many species of wildlife, including badgers, otters, the lesser horseshoe bat and a variety of marine life and birds.The attraction has something for everybody including peaceful woodland walks, workshops, Welsh art and crafts, a picnic area and one of the oldest working steam steam engines in Britain (restored by the famous steeplejack and TV personality Fred Dibnah).

Whilst there are no pubs in easy walking distance of the cottages, you will find no shortage of places to eat and drink on your travels of the immediate area. The Harp Hotel at Llandwrog, opposite Glynllifon Park, serves tasty food as does the Goat Inn (twenty minutes drive from the cottages).

“A Welsh gem”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2016

This is our second visit to Rosemary cottage (see my previous review) A wonderful mountain backdrop with beautiful farmland in front reaching out to views of the sea, what more could you possibly want? We arrived with friends who stayed overnight and they were so blown away by the cottage that they are going to book a week for themselves. When they left they were replaced by Nana and Grandad who absolutely fell in love with the farm and I'm sure will be back with us on our next visit. We visited Portmerion, Caernafon, Abersoch, Llanbedrog and more. Kite flying in Pwllheli was a highlight for me but this is the only place we visit as a family where we don't mind if the weather is bad and we are forced to stay inside. Thank you very much to Geoff and Denise. This is a true Welsh gem.

“Highly recommended”

“Great Location, great property”

Reviewed 31 Jan 2013

Enjoyed an autumnal break at this property. Really well equipped and lovely inside. This is out of the way but still near to everywhere. Can't fault the property or the break apart from not catching a fish in the lake. But enjoyed messing about in the boat anyway.

“Beautifully tranquil”

Reviewed 31 May 2012

Absolutely perfect. Fantastic surroundings and cottage. Exceptionally clean and very well appointed. We will definitely return.
