  • "We can't thank Gareth, the owner, enough for his support during our stay at Coetswis."

    My father was taken ill during our stay and Gareth went out of his way to assist us in getting my father to hospital. Fortunately, we were able to continue our stay at Coetswis and did not have to cut the holiday short. The cottage is lovely and in a fabulous spot. It is very well equipped and lovely and comfortable We hope to be able to book another holiday at the cottage when my father is able to travel again.

  • "Location is great, easy access to all main parts of the Lleyn peninsular."

    The farm where the holiday let is situated is very tidy, views are magnificent and we felt ‘very at home’ there. The nearby beach is stony , but there are walks nearby and the sunsets are lovely. It is worth noting that during these “peculiar”times , finding places to eat out is difficult . Some of the pubs are only open Thursday-Sunday. We can recommend a vineyard at Penygroes , which has a large cafe serving great lunches. Gareth, the owner ,will always make time for you , even though he leads a busy life. We will most certainly return to this cottage.

    Gareth was so helpful and friendly. We have 2 boys and they absolutely loved the farm. Close to nature, loads of wildlife and a beech 5 minutes away. The games room was a brilliant addition and the cottage was spot on.

    It's a perfect size for a family of 4 plus a dog. The games room is an added bonus especially for those with teenage kids. The owner is very pleasant and helpful. We are being a bit picky when we say that for us, the sofas weren't very comfortable, the tv is too high on the wall and the floor could have been mopped but that wouldn't stop us booking again.

  • "We returned to Pennarth having had a wonderful time on Gareth’s farm at Easter."

    The location is beautiful, such a great base for trips out to lovely beaches and coastal walks. The property is perfectly set out, under floor heating in the bathroom and conservatory such a luxury at this time of year (December/January.) The games room provided fun pool and table tennis tournaments, as well as a very generously stocked board game cupboard. It was a real treat, on arrival, to walk into a warm cottage with a twinkling Christmas tree waiting to greet us along with some food essentials and extra treats. Attention to detail and discrete, but unintrusive, personal involvement is this owner’s overall quality.

    The property is well equipped with all the mod cons for your comfort WiFi is available and fast and of course TV although in all honesty it was not anything we took advantage of when we visited. The cottage was very clean and the welcome pack is a very nice touch. the Llyn peninsula is a very diverse coastline, from sweeping sandy beaches to dramatic cliffs and mountains with beautiful scenery all around and ideally situated for visiting the local towns and attractions. We had a friend visiting from the USA and she has fallen in love the property and the location and says she can't wait to visit again. Gareth the owner is a great guy and will always help out if you need any information regarding the area or local places of interest. Our time there was just what we needed to recharge our physical and emotional batteries. Highly recommended.

  • "The location of our cottage was perfect, nestled in lovely, quiet country lanes, close to a beautiful stretch of coastline and on the cleanest farm imaginable."

    With 2 nine year old boys in tow we weren’t sure whether it wouldn’t be too quiet for them, and that we might be too noisy for the setting, but Gareth, the totally lovely host and farmer, ensured it was just right for them. He showed them the animals and tractors, plus he had created a great “games room” with pool table and table tennis, and lots of games to keep them entertained. The cottage was immaculate with a cosy, yet stylish, decor. A television in both bedrooms and the lounge was yet another clever idea. A welcome tray of goodies was a nice touch, especially the chocolate! We all, adults, kids and our sweet dog Winnie, had a great time and would not hesitate to return or to recommend to everyone.

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.
