  • "The cottage was very comfortable and clean, although the decor could do with a refresh and update."

    It would help if some more general kitchen utensils were available, but we coped well enough. Great views from the cottage a very quiet and relaxing break.

  • "A delightful cottage attached to owners house."

    Beautiful position with views across the valley, well situated for visiting Llyn peninsula and Snowdonia. Lots of castles, and places of interest to visit. Property was clean, well equipped but interior tired looking. Owners welcoming and friendly.

  • "We had the most enjoyable stay in the property."

    It was well equipped had an amazing view to wake up to. The owners of the property were most helpful and friendly. We would love to go back and cannot reccomend this property enough.

  • "The most spacious one bed cottage we have ever stayed in (and it's a few!"

    ) The position is glorious - and it's not too remote. Snowdonia and the coast equally accessible. No Wi-Fi, as it said on the listing (it certainly didn't bother us) but the mobile phone signal was excellent (better then home, in fact) and we would suggest making that clear on the property write-up. We really enjoyed it and thoroughly recommended. Sid and Su.

    Remote setting, which I enjoyed.

  • "Had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Bryn Hafod."

    The owners couldn't have been nicer and the pictures of the view from the back of the cottage don't do it justice. I didn't venture too far afield but there are some fantastic walks in the area, particularly from Trefor. I didn't personally miss the Internet but if I was being really critical the place would have benefited from more kitchen utensils to make cooking easier. Overall I would definitely recommend Bryn Hafod, either as a base to explore the Lynn Peninsula, or just somewhere to unwind.

  • "A lovely, comfortable, small one bedroom cottage in rural Lyn Peninsula."

    Just right for the pair of us to have a relaxing break. The hosts made us feel welcome and had everything ready for us, including some fresh eggs from the farm. An excellent place to stay to explore the peninsula and appreciate the countryside. Share your stay with a working farm and be visited by chickens, sheep, cows, along with the farm dog and cat. A car is needed as amenities are not within walking distance, but that will not detract from this cottage.

  • "The cottage was absolutely perfect and in such a gorgeous location with lots of available walks straight from the door step!"

    It was a fantastic stay. The owners were fabulous also, we had a difficulty with our car and they made contact with a local mechanic (John Povey) in Penygroes. They even drove ahead of us to make sure the car got there. We would recommend this cottage to any couple!!

  • "This was our second holiday at Bryan Hafod."

    We last visited in September 2020. We were delighted with every aspect of the cottage. We received a friendly welcome from the owners on each occasion. If you would like a quiet, covid-safe retreat this is the one to choose. Beautiful location and suited us because our daughter lived only a short drive away.

  • "The accommodation met our expectations but the setting exceeded them with a window and balcony overlooking a small valley and hills beyond."

    It was very peaceful and also a good location for exploring both the Llyn Peninsular and Snowdonia.

  • "Property was much bigger than expected from the photos with 3 main rooms: bedroom with double bed, kitchen/diner with two comfortable chairs and fireplace (fake fire), and large living room with settee and separate bed settee."

    And has great views south south-east towards Snowdonia from the living room and from the small wooden patio outside backdoor where you can sit and watch the view and listen to the rushing stream that runs back of the property

The property

Nestled on the outskirts of the rural village of Clynnog Fawr, on the north coast of the Llŷn Peninsula, in Wales is this charming single-storey, split-level cottage.

Enclosed by stone walls and attached to the owner's home, this property rests on the owners working farm and boasts a characterful interior decor, ideal for couples.

Be welcomed into an open-plan kitchen/diner which has a quirky interior with a brick inglenook fireplace housing an electric woodburning-effect stove to keep you nice and warm.

There is a small dining table where you can gather for a romantic meal; break open a bottle of champagne and toast to a wonderful holiday.

The kitchen itself is in-keeping with the traditional farmhouse style and has all the necessary appliances.

There are three steps down which lead into a large sitting room, complete with a sofa where you can cosy up and unwind in front of the TV.

The sitting room has large window which offer an abundance of natural light and superb views across the surrounding farming fields.

From here, you will find the shower room.

Choose to rest your head in the double bedroom once the evening draws to a close with plenty of space to store your personal belongings.

This property rests on the outskirts of the small village of Clynnog Fawr, a popular base for outdoor enthusiasts, where you can get involved with plenty of walking, cycling and an abundance of wildlife.

Further afield is the royal town of Caernarfon, which offers the popular 13th century Caernarfon Castle and the beautiful Snowdonia Mountains and Coast.

Make sure you take a day trip towards Anglesey Sea Zoo which has over 150 species of exotic underwater creatures for you to spot.

The coastline also has access to a number of lovely sandy beaches, whilst further afield are the charming towns of Porthmadog and Blaenau Ffestiniog, for its steam railway and famous Zip World and Bounce Below, full of adventure.

About the location


Trefor 3.5 miles; Nefyn 10 miles; Portmerion 17 miles; Bangor 19 miles.

The small village of Clynnog Fawr nestles between the foothills of Snowdonia and the unspoiled north coast of the Llyn Peninsula. It has grown up around the mediaeval church of St Beuno, one of the most important pilgrimage sites for travellers journeying to Bardsey Island. The village benefits from a petrol station and convenience store. Nearby a stony beach, a haven for beachcombers, is a few minutes’ walk away. The small village of Trefor is nearby and is surrounded by sea and mountains, overlooking Caernarfon Bay, and enjoys a harbour with stone breakwater pier and sheltered sandy beach that the Wales Coastal Path runs past, or the more adventurous can enjoy a regular surf outside the breakwater. Nearby, in the village of Llithfaen, are the Welsh Language and Heritage Centre and restaurant. The pretty coastal town of Nefyn sits atop sweeping cliffs, and is home to a fine, two-mile stretch of sandy beach, along with a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, and the award-winning golf club is popular with families and couples alike. Clynnog is also within reach of the amenities of the popular towns of Pwllheli, Abersoch, Caernarfon, Portmerion and Bangor. The coastline around this region is dotted with castles and coves, while fishing, sailing and watersports are all available. The start of the Snowdonia National Park is five miles away, with its dramatic scenery and abundance of superb walks. With its proximity to such a wide range of destinations, this area makes a superb base for a break in North Wales.
