About Tyn y Parc BarnNext to a pretty farmhouse on the Plas yn Rhiw estate, groups of friends and families will adore this character packed barn close to the North Wales coast.
With an old water mill behind the farm buildings, this converted barn is modern, bright and full of coastal charm. Perfect for walkers, families, surfers and outdoor lovers, you’ll find the barn nestled at the bottom of the Rhiw mountain, which rises behind the barn, and also close to the long sandy beach at Porth Neigwl (Hell’s Mouth).
Once you’ve stepped through the entrance porch you’ll find yourself in the hall, with the kitchen on your right and then the living room and dining area beyond. Straight on from the hallway is a separate toilet, family bathroom with its separate shower and then another corridor which leads to the bedrooms. Then, there’s the warren of bedrooms to explore! The first of these is a quad room, with four single beds, and then there’s a small flight of stairs that leads to the master bedroom, and another double bedroom on the other side of the landing (which has a door leading to an external stone staircase). Outside, the large garden is shared with Tyn y Parc Farmhouse next door but you’ll still have your own patio furniture for outdoor lunches, dinners or breakfast before a day of exploring.
Follow the lane from the cottage to the beach at Porth Neigwl (Hell’s Mouth) which is three and a half miles of sandy and pebble shore and craggy headlands, perfect for walking and with waves favoured by surfers. You’ll find the nearest pub and shops four miles away at Aberdaron or it’s a little bit further to Abersoch where you’ll find lots of kitesurfers enjoying the sheltered location. The bustling market town of Pwllheli (also on the coast) is home to the closest supermarket, as well as providing more shops, cafes and pubs, perfect for an afternoon stroll.
You’ll find the western fringes of the Snowdonia National Park with its unspoilt mountains steeped in history about an hour away from the cottage. You can also head to the incredible little beach known as ‘Whistling Sands’ at Porthor, on the western coast of the Llyn Peninsula. True, the sand may squeak, rather than truly whistle, but it’s still fun. If beaches aren’t your thing, then slate mines and a variety of restored railway lines pepper the landscape. Try Bounce Below at Blaenau Ffestiniog, where giant trampolines fill a disused slate mine, or hurtle through the air over a disused quarry on Europe’s longest zip wire. For a less adrenaline-fuelled day out, the fantasy Italianate town of Portmeirion with its brightly coloured crowd of buildings is also worth a trip. When you stay with us, the funds from your holiday go towards caring for special landscapes and places, like the rugged Llyn Peninsula and its incredible coastline.
