One well-behaved pet welcome (We ask that they do not sleep on the sofas or beds)

The North Wales region

Trefor is in a prime position for exploring the Snowdonia mountain range or the Llyn peninsula with all its splendid beaches and coastal walks.

CAERNARFON

The Royal town of Caernarfon just 13 miles away has an impressive castle and quaint old town set within its old city walls.
On the road towards Pen y Groes, you can visit the Inigo Jones Slateworks for a guided tour and a Slate craft Shop.
Also towards Caernarfon is Parc Glynllifon - a country park offering 8 miles of country paths which cater for visitors of all abilities.
The expansive beach of Dinas Dinlle is on road towards Caernarfon. This is a very popular beach with easy access and cafes nearby.

PWLLHELI

Pwllheli just 8 miles away is a historical Market town with a range of traditional and local stores, bars and restaurants and boasts one of Wales' best marinas with moorings for up to 400 boats. Many of the buildings in Pwllheli are listed, including the Old Workhouse, The Penlan Fawr, Whitehall and The Old Town Hall and a stroll around the town is quite rewarding.
There are two main beaches, South Beach with its Blue Flag award, or the Glan-y-Mor, towards the rear of the marina.

On the road to Pwllheli just a few miles away is an Activity centre - Glasfryn Wake Parc - for Go Karting, Quad bikes, fishing, archery, wakeboarding and kayaking.

SNOWDONIA NATIONAL PARK

Snowdonia National Park the highest mountain range in England and Wales is an area of outstanding natural beauty and contains some of the most magnificent scenery in Wales.
Visit the picturesque villages of Beddgelert and Llanberis where the railway can be taken for Snowdon.

PORTMEIRION

Visit Portmeirion the beautiful village and gardens built in an Italian style on a rugged hilltop overlooking the estuary. Many know Portmeirion for its role as "The Village" in Patrick McGoohan's television series "The Prisoner". It is also known for the Portmeirion Pottery, designed by Clough's daughter Susan Williams-Ellis (1918-1997).

Llyn Peninsula

The village of TREFOR is to be found on the Lleyn(or Llyn) Peninsula close to Caernarfon and Pwllheli.
Trefor developed thanks to the local granite quarry. Its small harbour became extremely busy in the days when local granite from the Eifl Quarry was shipped to all over Europe. The beach, a mix of sand and pebbles, is mostly sheltered. Trevor's pier – built during the granite boom years and now a popular spot with fishermen – extends into the sea for about 650ft/200m. Nowadays, the inner harbor is mostly occupied by pleasure boats.

It is a popular dive site for those interested in SCUBA diving and who appreciate the variety of sea life that exists in this location. Nestling at the foot of Yr Eifl (worth the walk to the summit for a spectacular view of Nant Gwrtheyrn) the village of Trefor is popular with families, diving, watersports and fishing enthusiasts and it provides you with an ideal base for exploring the Peninsula.

The village itself has a small grocery store with a Cafe, and a sub post-office.
Buses run from Trefor into Pwllheli and Caernarfon.
The beach is just 5 minutes walk from the house.

Close by, at CLYNNOG FAWR, there's the ancient Church of St Beuno, a major Llyn landmark on the Pilgrims' Route to Bardsey Island.

Also nearby at MORFA NEFYN a popular seaside resort, there is a unique 26 hole golf course with a view of the sea from every tee.

“Lovely and cosy”

Reviewed 29 Mar 2013

We loved our stay. The cottage was so cosy with the log burner. Great to be able to walk out the front door and go straight to the coastal path for our walks. Had a few days in Snowdonia too. There was everything we needed, and everything was new. Steve and Jane

“Home from home cottage surrounded by beautiful countryside”

Reviewed 20 Mar 2013

Recently refurbished cottage with a wellcoming log burner. The decor is modern while maintaining the cottage feel. Very, very clean. Lots of room for 4. The thick walls make for a very quiet retreet. The kitchen has all the modern appliances needed. The garden has a stream running through it!! The surrounding countryside has many walks suitable for young families to more senior walkers. The headland includes the coastal path along cliffs with many sea birds, only a 15 minute walk from the cottage. Plenty to see further affield. Will definately return!
