  • "Well situated cottage in a quiet area of Nefyn but close to the high Street, with a short walk to the beach and coastal paths."

    Good area for golf too. Great for a couple, with extended fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and dining area with patio doors opening onto a small paved, benched area great for alfresco eating. Enjoyed the holiday.

  • "The cottage was comfortable having all the things you would need to have, the only thing missing was a washing line, but a clothes airer was provided."

    Hand sanitiser and gloves were provided, if required. We did have a problem with the hot water, there wasn't any, but a quick phone call to the owner and he was there sorting it within 10 minutes, and no further problems occurred. The local area is great for walking, many mountain footpaths and coastal walks, clean sandy beaches nearby, does get busy though, ideal for sea bird and seal watchers from the nearby coastal cliff paths. Would recommend this cottage for a relaxing stay. We found a lot of the local attractions were closed, due to the covid 19 virus, but we were able to enjoy the outside area anyway.

  • "Ideal cottage for a couple."

    Lovely and clean and very well maintained. Managed to heat the house on a chilly winter weekend. Good base for walking the coastal path down past the golf course, stunning scenery. Bit tight to park anything bigger than a Qashqai outside if both neighbours are in.

  • "Haddef is an absolutely delightful, spacious, beautiful cottage."

    It is tastefully furnished with a luxurious bathroom and a large, well equipped, modern kitchen. It is set in lovely countryside, and is perfectly positioned for visiting the area and the fabulous beaches on the Llyn Peninsula, all of which are in very easy reach. Just a short walk takes you to Nefyn beach, Morfa Nefyn, and Porthdinllaen. The Ty Coch pub is also easily accessible, either across the beach, or via the golf course, and the coastal path is just stunning. Many other attractive villages, such as Aberdaron and Abersoch, are just a short car ride away. The Llyn Brewery in Nefyn is also definitely worth a visit. We particularly enjoyed our evenings relaxing in the lovely garden at Haddef, where we barbecued most nights. The views from the back of the cottage are beautiful. I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough. The owners did everything they could to make us welcome, and we are certainly intending to return again soon.

    The back garden was a peaceful setting for relaxation.aThe front room was a little dark with a street view only,only to be expected.Surounding area is stunning,good for walkers.The village lacks a good bar/inn/restaurant.The village seems to be ebbing away just as the herring and ship building industries have faded into the history books.Such a shame as the people are friendly and helpful.Havong transport to discover places of interest further afield is we feel essential.

    The quality of the conversion is obvious , only the best of everything used, no expense spared. Thoughtfully left milk,Welsh cakes & prosecco too!

  • "From the moment I saw 'Haddef' on the website I had a very good feeling about it and this feeling got better when speaking to the owner before arrival who was so helpful."

    Sometimes your hopes are not realised but this was not the case with 'Haddef'. When we arrived we found the cottage was beautiful. It was tastefully decorated and finished to a very high standard. It was so clean it felt brand new, as though we were the first people to stay there. I doubt there are many homes as well stocked as 'Haddef'. What was really nice were the extra little touches the owner provided - a pint of milk in the fridge, fresh flowers in the vase, a bottle of welcoming bubbly and complimentary tickets to a local attraction. Really thoughtful and got our holiday off to a great start. 'Haddef' is situated in a beautiful part of North Wales and stunning views and scenery are on your doorstep. We were incredibly lucky with the weather and have had the most amazing holiday. We will be leaving with heavy hearts. I cannot rate 'Haddef' highly enough, the owners have done a marvellous job and should be very proud. Thank you very much.

We managed to visit a lot of the beautiful beaches on the Llyn Pennisula and do some of the easy stretches of the coastal walks, including Criccieth, Aberdaron, Whistling Sands, Porthole Colmon and of course the beautiful Nefyn Beach, didn't get to Moerfa Nefyn no road access. The Airworld Museum was a very nice surprise doesn't look much from the outside but it's Dr Who's tardis of aviation memorabilia and some moving heroic stories. Nice Cafe further down the front from the museum, The Coffee Cafe, all fresh produce we called in for a breakfast on our way home, it was well worth the tiny detour, try the popcorn ice cream

The property

A lovely, welcoming terraced cottage nestled away from the main thoroughfare in a quiet location in the coastal village of Nefyn, only a short stroll away from all the village amenities.

Haddef is beautifully appointed and perfect for a couple looking for a romantic break and seeking to spend some quality time together, with that little bit extra, a touch of luxury.

Completely renovated to an exceptionally high standard and tastefully decorated this cottage is very deceptive from the outside but will not disappoint you.

From the moment you step inside you will feel relaxed and at home, the perfect start to any holiday.

The high end finish and the attention to detail is second to none, the cottage owner has thought of everything you could possible need and want to make this cottage and holiday a memorable experience.

Haddef offers warm, stylish and well-appointed accommodation throughout with modern spotlighting, solid oak flooring and oak furniture.

The sitting room has been comfortably furnished, with the wonderful exposed stone chimney breast and fireplace housing a warming woodburner, perfect for those chillier evenings, or setting the scene for enjoying a romantic candlelit meal or an evening in watching your favourite film.

The modern, classic cream kitchen is light, bright and very spacious and very well-equipped, right down to the wine cooler!

With wonderful solid oak work surfaces and a splendid centre island and breakfast bar, this kitchen is perfect to enjoy a fresh morning cup of coffee whilst preparing a leisurely breakfast.

From here the patio doors open out to the garden, perfect for alfresco dining.

To complete you holiday cottage, upstairs is a beautiful king-size bedroom and a wonderful bathroom with modern units, a double walk-in shower and with your favourite music piped through from downstairs you can enjoy a little bit of pampering and a long hot soak in the double-ended bath, just what you need after a day out and about exploring.

Outside, off the kitchen, is an enclosed, rear patio with picnic table and benches, so why not enjoy a refreshing cold drink on a warm summer’s day or evening?

Steps lead up to an elevated garden area with pretty borders and a further seating area, and a good-sized shed provides excellent storage for bikes.

Enjoy walks and romantic evening strolls on the beach.

Horse riding is available nearby; ride through quiet country lanes enjoying the beautiful scenery from the saddle.

The cottage is ideally situated close to the Maritime Museum and within walking distance from Nefyn Beach and the coastal footpath.

Haddef is also the perfect location for golfers, Morfa Nefyn, situated 2 miles away, boasts two of the finest 18 hole golf championship links courses in Wales.

You will find several golf courses in the area at Pwllheli and Porthmadog and not forgetting Royal St David’s Harlech, home of the Welsh Amateur Championship.

The Nanhoron Arms Hotel is a short walk away if you don’t fancy cooking and the famous Ty Coch Inn, down on the beach at Porthdinllaen is nearby, in fact the whole of the Llyn Peninsula is just waiting to be explored.

Plas yn Rhiw (NT) has beautiful ornamental gardens and is worth a visit and Porthmadog, home to the famous Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways and the famous Italianate village and gardens of Portmeirion are about a twenty mile drive away.

The towns of Abersoch and Pwllheli are close by, plus within driving distance is the stunning Snowdonia National Park, with all its attractions, and the wonderful Isle of Anglesey is a little further afield and is definitely worth a trip over.

This beautiful cottage is sure to delight, making a truly superb base for a couple looking to explore the area, and one you are sure to want to return to time after time.
