  • "Bodsela Bach was everything we hoped it would be, a beautiful property with a gorgeous view, and every comfort with a qaulity finish."

    Our hosts were a very nice family and not at all intrusive. In a lovely quiet location and just a ten minute journey to the beautiful beach of Nefyn. Can't wait to return.

    Ideal location to explore this part of Wales and there are many gorgeous places within just a few miles. Hosts were very welcoming and the little welcome pack was much appreciated. Our little dog settled straight away and the enclosed front garden was a bonus. Can only think of good things to say about this place, possibly the best holiday cottage we have stayed in, and hope to return in the near future. Thank you for a lovely relaxing break, Carole, Phill and Daisy.

    What a delightful cottage. Fitted out with all mod cons and very tastefully decorated and soft furnishings. Spotlessly clean and lovely owners who live next door, on hand if any issues arise. Perfect enclosed small garden at the front with secure fencing for a pet. Lovely seating area, situated in a quiet location yet near enough to all local attractions. Pwllheli, Nefyn, Criccieth, Abersoch, Aberdaron are all a stones throw away and perfect to visit. Would highly recommend this beautiful cottage and we will certainly be returning.

The property

Nefyn 2.4 miles.

Idyllically positioned in the peaceful village of Boduan, a stone's throw away from the seaside town of Nefyn, rests this delightful single-storey cottage, Bodsela Bach attached to the owners own home.

Boasting a stylish and contemporary interior and set within easy reach of both the coast and country, Bodsela Bach offers an intimate setting for a couples retreat to North Wales.

Step through the private gravelled courtyard nestled at the foot of this lovely dwelling and make your way inside your home-from-home for the duration of your trip.

Be charmed by the fabulous open-plan layout, beautifully-appointed with an elegant monochromatic décor; look forward to snuggling up with your significant other on the plush sofa following a day of adventure, or make use of the range of modern amenities provided in the well-equipped kitchen to rustle up a romantic meal for two.

Enjoy a candlelit dinner at the intimate dining table, or venture out through the patio doors and indulge in a spot of alfresco dining as you soak in the last of the summer sun with your favourite tipple.

As your eyes grow heavy, head back indoors to discover the light and airy bedroom, boasting a sumptuous double bed providing your spot of rest.

In the morning, kick-start your day with an invigorating rinse in the contemporary shower room, stylishly tiled throughout, before heading off on an adventure.

Take the short drive into the heart of the nearby town of Nefyn where you'll find your local amenities; indulge in a bite to eat at the local pub, savor a delicious ice-cream with a scenic view across the coast, or head to the village store to stock up on ingredients to prepare from the comfort of your holiday home.

Whilst you're in the area, be sure to tour the local brewery of Cwrw Llŷn, where no trip would be complete without sampling the goods, or immerse yourself in history at the Amgueddfa Forwrol Llŷn Maritime Museum.

Embark on a scenic journey along the Llyn Coastal Path as it passes atop the rugged clifftops, soaking in the far-reaching sea views en route, or for a more challenging experience, head further afield to Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park and tackle the climb to the summit of Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), the tallest mountain in Wales.

Pack up your beach-going essentials and head to the village of Morfa Nefyn, where you can paddle the tranquil waters of Porth Nefyn or feel the glorious sand between your toes as you lounge with a good book.

If that's not your thing, test your swing with a game at the 18-hole championship course at Nefyn Golf Club, or unwind with a crisp glass of wine at the waterfront restaurant, The Cliffs, framing picture-perfect views across the bay.

Explore the hidden gems of North Wales with a stay at Bodsela Bach.
