A delightful link-detached former chapel house in an elevated position in the small rural hamlet of Gyrn Goch on the north coast of the Llyn Peninsula.
With superb views of the sea towards Anglesey, and with a wooded backdrop, this charming cottage is an ideal base for exploring this beautiful part of North Wales and close to the three small coastal mountains of Gyrn Goch, Gyrn Ddu and Yr Eifl, known as The Rivals, which sweep majestically down to the sea.
Fully refurbished, this lovely cottage has been sympathetically and stylishly equipped to a high standard.
It has a wonderful open plan living accommodation downstairs, having an attractive slate floor throughout and a comfy sitting area with a lovely outlook towards the coast.

For keen walkers, there are many footpaths and the beautiful Welsh countryside is on the doorstep.
The rugged grey mountain tops of The Rivals, the peninsula and valleys are breathtaking all year round, whether they may be bearing the lush greens and bracken of the summer, the orange hues of autumn or the white carpet of winter.
The cottage is well situated for many cycle tracks too.
Glynllifon Park is just a few minutes’ drive away, and a great day out with something for everybody, gardens, craft workshops, café and steam engine.
