Description

This is a warm (although larger than you would expect!) stone quarryman's cottage in the village of Trefor on the Llyn Peninsula. Set in a row of terraced cottages half a mile from the beach, the cottage has the added benefit of a babbling stream at the bottom of the garden- lovely to listen to while enjoying a quiet drink on the 'sun trap' terrace on a summer evening. Although traditional, the cottage also has a 'modern feel' and it is the perfect location for couples or families wanting to enjoy local walks and wildlife or for those who just want to get away from it all. The cottage benefits from central heating (although not always necessary with the log burner!) as well as mod cons including a dishwasher and washing/machine dryer.

Trefor is a traditional quarrying village which nestles in the shadow of Tre'r Ceiri which is one of the best preserved Iron Age hillforts in the UK. Trefor has a small harbour and a beach with plenty of parking.

Trefor is a traditional quarrying village which nestles in the shadow of Tre'r Ceiri which is one of the best preserved Iron Age hillforts in the UK. Trefor has a small harbour and a beach with plenty of parking. Surfing and diving is possible here. There is a small shop and a Post Office in the village. There are lots of walks starting from your cottage doorstep.

Trefor is situated on the north coast of the Llyn Peninsula, between Caernarfon and the market town of Pwllheli just off the main A499 road. It is just 15 minutes drive from Pwllheli, 20 minutes from Caernarfon and less than half an hour from Abersoch.

It is ideally placed for exploring Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsula with plenty of walking on its doorstep. Climb up to the old quarry on Yr Eifl for panoramic views towards Anglesey. Or follow the coastal path which continues around the Peninsula. The local village of Clynnog Fawr has an impressive church St.Beuno which was used by pilgrims travelling to Bardsey Island.

One well-behaved dog welcome (We ask that they do not sleep on the sofas or beds). Fibre WIFI is available.. but as is often the case in rural settings.. mobile reception can be limited indoors.. but it all adds to the charm!!

Location description from owner

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 designed by William Clough Ellis. Many know Portmeirion for its role as The Village in Patrick McGoohans television series The Prisoner. It is also known for the Portmeirion Pottery, designed by Clough’s daughter Susan Williams-Ellis

Trefor

The village of TREFOR is to be found on the Llyn Peninsula close to Caernarfon and Pwllhelli. 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. Nowadays, the inner harbour is mostly occupied by pleasure boats. It is a popular dive site for those interested in SCUBA diving. 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.

“Fabulous”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2017

Just had a short break at Yr Encil, we had a fantastic time. Lovely, warm and cosy cottage, everything there you need, great facilities, beautiful walks and a handy bus ride to visit local towns. Can't wait to return in the very near future.

Owner's reply: Diane thanks so much for your kind words we really appreciate it and great to you will be back. We look forward to it! Thank you Esther

“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!
