  • "Lovely property with everything you need."

    Fantastic location, 5-10 min walk to beach. Recommended

    Reviewed by CarlaApr 2022

  • "My only real criticism, and it's an important one for a large party, is the one toilet facility."

    This will be particularly important with very young or old people in the party. The external wet room was amusing but no good for nocturnal visits!

  • "Hi, lovely cottage and we loved the conservatory - a great place to relax."

    Just minor details - not enough wine glasses and some instructions on how to control the heating - it was very hot at night. We had a great stay though - thanks!

  • "We really liked the downstairs arrangement with the dining area, living area and conservatory."

    The upstairs would have been much improved if there had a been a bathroom there. One inside bathroom for a 5-bedroomed house was just not adequate. The outside toilet/shower room was unattractive and not too clean. There was one half roll of toilet paper in the house when we arrived and no dishwasher tablets - most rented properties provide some of each. We would recommend that the owner considers putting a notice on the recycling room to emphasise when the bins need to be put out. We didn't see the notice in the house until it was too late.

  • "A well positioned property in good walking distance from Aberdaron."

    We had a lovely week of walking and relaxing here at Rhianfa. Our only request would be a hand towel to accompany the bath towel supplied. We would stay here again.

  • "Very comfortable cottage 10 minutes walk from the village, beach & pub."

    Great location for coastal walks. Although it has space for 8, we found it perfect for a couple and just used the ground floor as it was competively priced at the time.

  • "Had a great time thanks."

    a very nice house. i guess the only gripe is only having 1 bathroom inside. Maybe add an access to the shower room from inside?

  • "The fires are NOT SAFE the front glass is broken, there is no handle on the door to open it safely, most of the windows do not shut properly which blows the curtains and it is very drafty, there is not enough seating for the amount of people that can stay (8), knobs missing from the cooker (you can't turn the oven on/off), the utility door does not open and close properly nor does it lock (security issue)."

    The conservatory roof leaks in on top of you and makes the floor very slippery (SLIP HAZARD) It would not cost the earth to make this property as good as what you are expecting it to be and then this would be an outstanding place to stay.

  • "A very relaxing stay in a lovely quiet location."

    Just a 10 min walk to the beach and out of season it was lovely and quiet. Great pub terrace overlooking the beach with friendly staff at Ty Newydd. The cottage was very comfortable with everything we needed. As ever with a holiday property there were minor issues (dripping kitchen tap, weak shower flow, sticking outside door, minor leak from the conservatory roof, vacuum not working up very well) but nothing that detracted from a relaxing stay. Great base to explore Pen Llyn and would definitely come back. We were nice and cosy even in the 70mph storm on one day.

  • "I only thing that is a bit disappointing is both toilet are downstairs, one being outside which is okay."

    The accommodation is good, plenty of space in the bedrooms, living room and conservatory. Other people stated there were spider webs however there were none when we stayed. Also the conservatory is excellent, a nice place to sit during the day and evening time, but there is a risk of water leak during the Autumn and Winter months. Overall, I was happy that we booked Rhianfa.

  • "This is a lovely comfortable base for exploring the wonderful area."

    The garden is not secure so we had to be vigilant with our two high energy dogs with two people manning the exits and they still managed to get in the (very quiet) road. The cleanliness in generally good, but some areas need attention, there are lots of cobwebs dust around, plug sockets not secured to the wall and dodgy bathroom light. These things didn’t impact on our holiday and we had a lovely time, The house is well equipped with everything you might need for a lovely relaxing holiday

    It’s a beautifully spacious rustic home away from home with all the amenities a young family need. The house is a 10 minute walk away from Aberdaron village and a 10 minute drive away from the whistling sands beach which I highly recommend. We will definitely stay at the Rhianfa again

  • "This was our second stay at Rhianfa and have thoroughly enjoyed both visits!"

    The house is a perfect family home with everything you could need for a home from home stay. The conservatory is our favourite room in the house with beautiful views out to the surrounding garden and perfect to relax in after a day on the beach. The layout and location of the house is fab and the outside shower room is a great addition. We would highly recommend Rhianfa and will definitely be back again !

  • "Rhianfa was a lovely cottage in a lovely location."

    It was great that it was dog friendly, although our dogs are well mannered and don't go on furniture and we didn't allow them upstairs. Even though it was pretty windy while we were there the cottage was cosy and we were able to use the conservatory during the day. The location was great, we walked into the village every day and the coastal walks certainly blew the cobwebs away! There were 8 of us which meant we had to have a bit of a rota for the bathroom - but we knew that before we arrived! Would definitely come back for another visit.

    What a fantastic place-every eventuality of equipment provided-the bed linen was of a brilliant quality and vintage welsh quilts too Amazing collection of books to dip in and out off-conservatory was so cosy to sit in and great to have Netflix available on the tv- Sympathetically furnished to its era We only wish we could have stayed longer and hope to return very soon

  • "We love to stay at Rhianfa this was not our first visit and hopefully not our last it is a large house very well equipped and very comfortable."

    The large conservatory is especially a relaxing and a comfortable space to sit in and read in the evenings.It is very homely without rules and regulations. The only downside for us as we have two dogs is that the garden is not completely enclosed which means they have to be carefully watched when out side.Rhianfa is within walking distance of Aberdaron although it is a very steep hill back.Aberdaron is a picturesque village with great cafes, pubs, chip shop, bakery,and a very long sandy beach.

    When I rang up to clarify this on Saturday I was told there wasn’t a sky box advertised and so I had to read the description out from your website , no apologies were made I was told some one would get back to me but they never did. We have booked many cottages through you over the years and have been satisfied before and we only hope this time was an aberration .

  • "The sea views were only from 1 upstairs bedroom."

    The Garden was not secure after and after spending a long time searching for a suitable property it was very dissapointing as we had to walk the dog on a lead. The shower was very poor as very slow flow. The night storage heaters were not easy to control and the main heating was from 2 fires and there was no fuel. We were looking forward to a relaxing holiday and it was stressful due to the unenclosed garden and the road.

  • "We had a lovely holiday, the cottage was in a great spot on the edge of a pretty little village and beach."

    Our dog had a great time exploring local beaches (some beaches had restrictions through Sept), but the garden was not secure and so he had to be kept on the lead at all times in the garden which was a shame. All in all we had a great time.

The property

A lovely, detached coastal property set in its own gardens and enjoying some lovely countryside and coastal views, located just on the outskirts of the beautiful little fishing village of Aberdaron, which is situated on the Southern tip of the stunning Llyn Peninsula.

This property is perfect for family holidays and is the ideal base for exploring the area and creating some wonderful memories to take away with you after your time here.

This delightful cottage offers welcoming, comfortable and homely holiday accommodation, arranged over two floors and within a short stroll of the village and sheltered sandy beach.

There is a light and bright walk through sitting and dining area, with stripped wood flooring, making it a very sociable space to sit and relax, or for watching your favourite family movie.

On those chillier evenings the warming multi-fuel stove is a great addition to the sitting and dining area, with an extendable table to accommodate everyone where a family meal becomes a banquet with the dancing flames and crackling of logs on the open fire.

The well-equipped kitchen, with granite worktops and double electric range cooker will certainly please the chef in the family.

The cottage has five bedrooms, including a king-size double on the ground floor which boasts two windows overlooking the lovely garden, the other four bedrooms are arranged on the first floor, and all enjoy a pleasant view.

All the bedrooms are serviced by one family bathroom on the ground floor, but there is an external wet room which is great for when you are coming off the beach.

A wonderful fully glazed conservatory leads off the sitting room and opens to the garden, providing a lovely spot for taking in the beautiful coastal views, or for reading the paper and enjoying a morning cup of coffee.

It also provides an ideal vantage point to watch the younger members of the family play in the garden, a perfect place for them to run off any excess energy they may have left after a day of building sandcastles and exploring the hidden coves and rock pools.

There are some lovely walks close by, many of which link up to the Welsh Coastal Path, opening up miles of unspoilt coastal and cliff top walks.

Visit the famous Whistling Sands beach or the superb surf beach at Hells Mouth.

The marine visitor centre in Aberdaron is also well worth a visit or have a leisurely lunch at one of the local village pubs.

Close by are the popular resorts of Abersoch and Pwllheli, and the stunning Caernarfon castle, which are well worth exploring.

Further afield but within driving distance is the Italianate village of Portmeirion, the wonderful Snowdonia National Park, and the Isle of Anglesey.

This cottage is in a great location for enjoying the many coastal resorts as well as offering easy access to many of the attractions in this area, providing a wonderful base for all the family, anytime of the year.
