Dec 19-Brand new Bathroom installed!

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 with a terraced area at the bottom of the front garden- lovely to listen to while enjoying a quiet drink. The long front garden also has a central 'sun trap' terrace. 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, washing/machine dryer, fridge freezer, microwave, fibre wifi,TV with DVD as well as a second toilet in addition to the brand new modern large family bathroom with a 'double' shower including a large powerful 'drench' head. Two sofas surround the log burner and the open plan living area has a family dining table. There is also a second toilet and handbasin next to the bathroom.

The beds in the brooms have been configured to provide maximum flexibility for families or couples. The front bedroom has a good quality zip and link bed; so it can either be a superking or two singles. The second bedroom has two single beds but these can also be linked to create a king size double.

The cottage also has its own private parking space with steps down to the sunny back yard.

We have implemented a detailed cleaning protocol and will ask guests to complete a simply current health questionnaire before and after the holiday.

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 -please enquire (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!!

Owner's reply:
Thank you for the positive review regarding the cottage. Yes it is unfortunate that in common with many villages in the area there is currently not a pub or full time restaurant in the village. However Berts kitchen a 5 minute walk from the cottage has just opened although only on a Saturday. Whilst it might not suit everyone the relatively frequent bus service from the village to Pwlhelli (15 mins) and Caernarfon (25 mins) runs into the evening. Thanks again for your comments and hopefully we can welcome you back soon..
