  • “The cottage is in need of some improvement and modernization.”

    In the owned own words ," this is not a 5 star accommodation" we agree and would rate it about 2 star. Accommodation failed to meet the good standard we have had previously from Sykes.

    - Mr Heathcote, June 2021

    Thank you for your feedback. A comprehensive scheme of decoration and modernisation was planned for winter 2019/20. Covid put paid to that. Unfortunately, the Welsh government did not allow us to visit the cottage during either lockdown. During the latest 7 month lockdown the lack of heating caused paint on the walls to flake and some rust to appear, in particular on the front of the fridge. There were also some unexpected repairs to make. We have been reluctant to cancel anyone's holiday, post lockdown as many bookings this summer have been rescheduled from last year. All essential repairs were made in April and there is a comprehensive cleaning scheme, as ever. We explain to all guests that the cottage is waiting for a "good decorate" at the end of the season and hope that this does not affect the quality of their holiday. Thank you again for your feedback. - Sykes owner relations

The property

A pretty, whitewashed, stone, terraced cottage, set on the outskirts of the village of Llithfaen, one of the highest villages on the Llyn Peninsula, enjoys some wonderful views and is just four miles from the delightful coastal resort of Nefyn and eight miles from the market town of Pwllheli, North Wales.

This pretty cottage provides a cosy base, ideal for exploring this wonderful part of North Wales for a couple, two friends or a small family.

A homely little place with a coastal theme, the cottage is full of quirkiness and character features such as the exposed beams in the sitting room and the open fire is a lovely addition, especially during those cooler months.

The sitting room offers comfortable seating and a dining area, and a cosy bathroom has been neatly tucked away, off the living accommodation.

A well-equipped kitchen and two double bedrooms upstairs, one enjoying wonderful countryside and distant sea views, complete this lovely cottage.

Outside there is a front garden with furniture, accessed down some steps from the paved patio area.

Take in the sea breeze and enjoy those wonderful views after a busy day out and about, walking on the mountains.

Benefiting from a sunny aspect it’s an ideal spot to sit and relax, enjoy a drink or even some alfresco dining perhaps?

On the doorstep, and within walking distance of the cottage, are the abandoned slate village of Nant Gwrtheyrn (now a popular Welsh language centre), miles of relaxing, rolling countryside, with spectacular views over the whole of Tremadog and Caernarfon Bays and the incredible prehistoric remains of Tre'r Ceiri, a hill fort, with stunning views, made up of 150 dry stone hut circles.

The area is an ideal base for either an active walking holiday or a relaxing, sightseeing tour, full of history, spectacular scenery and award-winning beaches.

Discover deserted coves and enjoy miles of sandy beaches which this coastline is famed for.

Just a few miles away are the sailing centres at Abersoch and Pwllheli, and the beautiful village of Aberdaron with a National Trust visitor centre.

Slightly further afield is the stunning Snowdonia National Park, the Italianate village and gardens of Portmeirion, definitely worth a visit and for history lovers there are many historic castles, including Criccieth, Caernarfon and Harlech.

This lovely cottage offers a great holiday base for a relaxing break, all year round.

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.
