Llyn Peninsula holiday cottage This gorgeous house has been put together with talent and a great sense of style - contemporary with a retro 1950/60s twist. The spacious living area has an eclectic mix of 1960s pieces, complemented by stylish new sofas, an ottoman and bright colourful posters. Enjoy the traditional gramophone and have a little boogie! Two steps up from the lounge is a streamlined galley kitchen with pale grey units where all requirements are catered for and beyond is a spacious shower room. There are two delightful bedrooms on the first and second floors - a king size bed on the first floor and a zip and link bed on the second. There are two folding beds provided for children as well as a traveling cot. What delights in this property is the attention to detail. Incorporated in the kitchen wall is a red post box - suggestions and comments from guests are encouraged to be posted here. The first floor landing is an extra seating area - on wet days a miniature snooker table, Rubik's Cube, playing cards and plenty of books provide amusing distractions. Stop and learn a few Welsh phrases chalked up on a blackboard as you descend the stairs. These original ideas all help to enhance your stay. There is a small courtyard at the back with table, chairs and barbecue - put on the fairy lights as the day fades. Trefor Village Trefor is a small traditional ex-mining village - if you're feeling brave visit the pub and try out a few Welsh phrases. The village shop is conveniently located across the road from the property. Coastal Path and beaches Just a short walk from the cottage there is a small beach and access to the coastal path but be warned there are steep drops along the edge of the cliff. However, the path offers magnificent views up towards the old granite quarry which is still the main supplier of curling stones for the popular Scottish sport. A short drive over the mountain, join the path again at lovely Nefyn to admire the 2 beautiful bays of Nefyn and Morfa Nefyn. Dip down onto Nefyn beach with its bright, colourful beach huts - a perfect safe bathing spot for children. Rejoin the path and cross the rocky promontory beyond Morfa Nefyn down to Porthdinllaen beach - lovely and sandy with the famous Ty Coch pub on the water's edge and dip your feet in the water while enjoying traditional ales. The pub is so popular it has been voted the 3rd most popular beach bar in the world! Pilgrims churches A few miles northward from Trefor is the village of Clynnog Fawr. The very large and impressive church has many original fittings and a saint's shrine in a small chapel at the side where sick pilgrims would rest on rushes before continuing their journey. On the mountain road towards Nefyn is the small hamlet of Pistyll where down off the main road is a lovely 12th century church just above the cliff. It is kept as it was long ago with sweet smelling rushes on the floor and walls adorned with medical herbs - apparently a long standing local tradition relating to the needs of the pilgrims. The pilgrims' destination was Bardsey Island and the embarkation point was the lovely whitewashed village of Aberdaron. Here there is also a stunning church and boat trips can be taken to Bardsey itself. Caernarfon Castle and Victoria Dock Edward I's colossal building is magnificent and breathtaking. Wander round this huge fortress - children will love the circular stairways up to the towers with their arrow slit walls and creepy dungeons. The Victoria Dock nearby has a theatre and restaurants as well as shops including an excellent independent book shop. Palas Prints is a good place for browsing on wet days. Snowdonia National Park This is about 40 minutes away by car. Llanberis, at the foot of Snowdon, is the perfect starting point for a walk to the summit and the Snowdon railway starts here. Pick a good day to see the views if going by train and booking is advisable. 2 Bedrooms sleeping a maximum of 4 adults and 2 children 1 King size bedroom on 1st floor, 1 Linked bedroom on 2nd floor 2 zed beds provided for children plus travel cot.
