About Tyn y Parc FarmhouseNestling at the foot of the Rhiw mountain, this wonderful slate-roofed Welsh stone farmhouse is also close enough to the sea for invigorating coastal rambles.
Brilliant for larger families or groups of friends, this pretty farmhouse with a former working mill wheel at the back makes a great base for exploring the slopes of southern Snowdonia. Next door is Tyn y Parc Barn, so the two properties can be booked together.
The glazed porch opens into the dining room and beyond that the cosy living room with its comfortable sofas. Also downstairs, you’ll find the kitchen with a utility and drying room off that, perfect if you’ve come back to dry off after a typically Welsh walk. Upstairs, there are the two twin bedrooms and the master bedroom, with lush mountain and field views. There’s also the family bathroom with its spacious separate shower. Outside, the large garden is shared with Tyn y Parc Barn next door, but each cottage has its own outdoor seating and glorious views of the surrounding Welsh countryside.
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, 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.
