About Hywyn

A holiday apartment in Henfaes House, close to the beach in the heart of Aberdaron.

Hywyn is a bright, spacious apartment that occupies the ground floor of Henfaes house at the heart of Aberdaron. Rise early and enjoy a lazy breakfast before heading onto the nearby Aberdaron beach. The wide family bay is great for families and novice surfers too. 

For more experience surfers, the nearby beaches of Porth Ceiriad and Porth Neigwl have bigger swells. Learn more about the local environment, get ideas for activities, walks, attractions and things to do on the peninsula at our Porth y Swnt interpretation centre. Guests of the cottage receive free entry.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
