About Tan y Bwlch

A beautifully restored 19th century cottage with panoramic sea views outside the front door.

Tan y Bwlch is a grade II listed traditional Penllyn crog loft cottage built in the early nineteenth-century. After a full restoration, its carefully preserved interior is a rare example of its type. The one-bedroom nook retains its original features including an inglenook fireplace, slate, tile and wooden floors and original beams.

Wake up early and explore the fascinating Plas yn Rhiw Estate. You’ll be blown away by the panoramic sea-views just outside your front door. The cottage is in one of the most sought after locations on the Llyn Peninsula.

Further afield, discover one of the nearby beaches of Abersoch or Porth Neigwl. There are also plenty of excellent seafront pubs in the area if you’d prefer a more relaxing afternoon.

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.
