  • "We enjoyed our stay at Bewthyn Defaid."

    The cottage is very well-equipped and in a nice quiet area. There were a few points that could be addressed : 1. New matresses are needed for the 2 single beds as the springs were sticking up. 2. We couldn't alter the central heating and there were some cold evenings. 3. The grill on the oven didn't work.

  • "The property is superb,lots of space ,spotlessly clean ."

    Huge kitchen & dining room with all the equipment needed. The shower is super powerful which is something we always like to have. All three bedrooms very light and lovely feel to them. We felt very comfortable in our weeks stay . The outdoor space was used extensively and gets the sun all day! Having coffee in the sun in the mornings through to several BBQs with sunsets . Nefyn is a great base to explore the fantastic lyn Peninsula with its Knock-out Views and top class beaches.& not with hoards of tourists!! Don’t miss booking this one it’s a real gem.

  • "Lovely little cottage and well located for walks on the coast."

    The cottage was clean and had all the essentials. Compared to other places we have stayed in, the ‘welcome pack’ was minimal. Some more information would have helped eg about the recycling arrangement, instructions for using the log burner, a map of the village, etc. We found the DVD player was not plugged into the tv and no cable to do this so unable to watch the dvds we brought with us. We didn’t use the log burner, but if we had we’d have had to buy logs as only two logs supplied and no log store - if advertising a log burner we felt more than two logs should be supplied! Overall a lovely cottage - just a few frustrations.

  • "I honestly didn't want to leave !"

    This was our first holiday with our 16 month border collie and this house was just perfect. It was spotless , stylish and so comfortable. The host had thought of everything. We couldn't have asked for more. Nefyn is very much my happy place and we will definitely be rebooking. Thank you so much .

  • "Lovely place, very convenient for beach, recently decorated to high standard."

    The only bad thing is the mattresses are uncomfortable. I'd recomend Emma mattresses as they are not too pricey, tough and don't have lumpy springs.

Pop open a bottle of something chilled and raise a glass to a superb holiday in Wales before tucking into your home-cooked dish within the separate dining room, offering a great sociable space for your loved ones to gather of an evening.

For a more relaxed moment, head into the sitting room and light up the woodburning stove, which offers a gentle warmth and a sense of atmosphere, as you curl up on the plush sofa and flick through the channels of the Smart TV.

Head up the staircase to find the three equally as delightful bedrooms, each served by the sleek family bathroom, containing a plush Jacuzzi bath and a walk-in shower, so that you can choose how best to prepare for bed or a new day.

Here, you can take your pick between a spacious king-size double bedroom and two elegantly-appointed single bedrooms, designed with a bright colour palette and plenty of space to keep your things.

As you wake up each morning, look forward to sitting out in the garden with your cup of tea, whilst admiring the views of Garn Boduan with its Iron Age hillfort, which is awaiting to be explored later on.

During a balmy evening, come back to the garden to light up the barbecue and enjoy a spot of alfresco dining as the sun sets over the rolling hills.

Immerse yourself in your local surroundings further by taking a short stroll into the town centre of Nefyn, where you will find a good selection of shops and places to eat and drink, as well as the Llŷn Maritime Museum situated a stone’s throw away for those interested in delving into the town’s past.

Summer afternoons can be spent at the beach, popular with families or if you are feel brave, try a round of golf at Nefyn’s famous headland golf course, which is not for the faint hearted.

From the doorstep of the cottage, be sure to explore Garn Boduan or keen walkers can choose to travel to the Snowdonia National Park, home to a magnitude of hiking and outdoor opportunities.
