“Perfect location to get away from it all.”
This old miner’s cottage is full of character and my family of 3 plus 2 dogs had a wonderful few days stay. The wood burner made it lovely and cosy. The owner has thought of everything you might possibly need in the kitchen. The pub in the village was very welcoming and the food tasty although they don’t serve every night. The cottage location is fantastic. Very close to the Lyn Peninsula - outstanding coastline and National Trust beaches plus only 35 mins approx to Portmeirion - a must see ...

Very close to Nant Gwrtheyrn and a spectacular walk or drive down. All in all a pleasurable stay and I just enjoyed sitting in the bedroom window seat just watching the changeable weather and hoping for some snow!
“We enjoyed our stay.”
Just no complaints. Lovely comfortable cottage in a great location. We don't normally return to the same properties trying to try a new one each time. However this year Sykes have confounded us, first with our holiday in July in Cornwall, and now with Henfro. Both have been properties we want to return to. So we were very disappointed to find that Henfro is no longer going to be available.
“The heating not working in lounge/ diner/ kitchen.”
Had to rely on one on the landing, if it was same that would be great. We did use log burner but not good in hot weather when just need the chill taking off. Settee needs extra padding in seat, uncomfortable! And the arm chair. Mold on shower curtain- just have two and treat one while others up! We've had experience of old bathroom extensions ourselves. Air freshener needs spraying before customers arrive, a bad smell as you enter on first day was very off putting. Think it was just age of property.
“The cottage was quaint and cosy, central heating and a logburner so it was very warm, plenty of extra little touches and the bottle of wine and chocs was very welcome!”
Extra bedding, towels etc. Great location with amazing views and walks, and we could bring our dogs , would definitely recommend it.
“Absolutely fabulous location.”
A must for walkers with the coastal and hill walks. Walks on the doorstep, mile or so down through Nant Gwytheyrn, the hidden valley, to the beach by the Welsh Language Centre with cafe and local history or up the hill behind the house. Not to be missed are the walk along the beach to the Ty Coch Inn at Porth Dillaen and the all day breakfast at the beach cafe at Port Oer (Whistling Sands). Like stepping back in time and wonderful to hear Welsh spoken as a first language. Everyone was friendly and I will be going back next year.
“Really lovely: comfortable home with log burner and surprisingly well equipped and in such a stunning location.”
Would love to visit again.
“Good coast line lovely walks very good food in the pub in the village of Llithfaen that is just down the road from the cottage.”
A very good village shop that you can get all you need .Once again it was a lovely place to stay

About the location
Nefyn 4 miles; Abersoch 12 miles.
The small village of Llithfaen is one of the highest villages on the Llyn Peninsula, enjoying some of the best views around due to its location on the slopes of the Yr Eifl mountain range.
The village boasts its own community-run village shop and local pub, which was established in 1988 and offers a friendly welcome.
Llithfaen is very proud of its Welsh heritage with the Welsh Language and Heritage Centre and restaurant located just up the road at Nant Gwrtheyrn, which also has a pebble beach.
The pretty coastal town of Nefyn lies 4 miles away, sitting atop sweeping cliffs, and is home to a fine, two-mile stretch of sandy beach, popular with families, along with a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants.
The village is also within reach of the amenities of the popular towns of Pwllheli, Abersoch and Caernarfon.
In nearby Porth Dinllaen is the Ty Coch pub, voted 3rd best 'beach bar' in the world in an online feature in June 2013.
The coastline around this region is dotted with castles and coves, while fishing, sailing and water sports are all available.
The Snowdonia National Park is 25 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..
