  • "Ideally situated for the coastal walk, beach and only 5 minutes from outlets in the village centre."

    The accommodation has everything you need and is comfortable. Would also suit golfers as it is only minutes from Nefyn and about 15 minute drive from Pwllheli and Abersoch.

    thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. we hope to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely week in November."

    The house was beautifully decorated, comfortable and very well equipped. The view was amazing, even in bad weather and the owners were really kind, friendly snd helpful. The only drawback with this property was having to enter through a bedroom, especially after a walk with boots etc on. It is a shame the door couldn’t be to the side instead. A larger mat would be helpful to keep the floor as clean as possible and give you more space to wipe and remove boots. It was an irritation but it didn’t take away from the fantastic time we had and would go back again

    thanks for your wonderful feedback, the property description does state that you enter the cottage through the bedroom. thanks so much abiut the top re the larger mat, we have taken in on board and changed the mat. we really hope to welcome. you back again soon. Property Owner

  • "The property was modern, with attractive decor and furnishing."

    The views were spectacular, the beds were comfortable and the access and welcome were great. Just one or two tiny things would have given us perfection: only 2 dishwasher tablets were provided, and there was no grill pan that we could find. We cooked in nearly every night and ate and drank very well despite those tiny omissions!

  • "Lovely property - very relaxing and decorated beautifully."

    The entrance into the bedroom might need a bigger mat for muddy boots …. Other than that it was great!

  • "A lovely modern property with a stunning view of the coast from the lounge."

    The bi-folding doors are such a great feature. The property was spotless and so looked after with some nice homely touches. Perfect location for the coastal walks.

  • "The property is lovely and the view of Cardigan Bay is stunning from the lounge."

    We would definitely recommend with the Beach of Nefyn minutes away and Porthdinllaen only a 45 min walk along the scenic coastal path and beach for a refreshing drink at the Tŷ Coch Inn. Abersoch is worth a drive to visit, a very friendly and welcoming village. Perfect property to stay in with a little dog to enjoy the Llŷn Peninsula.

  • "The property was beautiful and immaculately clean with spectacular views."

    When we arrived we were welcomed by a lovely friendly couple Mari and her husband Carwyn who were the owners of the property and put us at ease from the moment we met them, they even left us bottles of beer from the local brewery. They told us about the area and said if we needed anything just to ask but also left us to our own devices. It is a great place to stay especially if you like walks, exploring and beautiful scenery. We will definitely be recommending it to others.

    Would be more than happy to stay again. My only criticism would be that we struggled for storage space for clothes in the main bedroom. Apart from that, perfect.

  • "Lovely place to stay."

    The views are stunning, and the house is well equiped with everything you need. Stayed with a busy toddler, and had everything we needed, including a high chair and baby bath. The layout is a little unusual, as you walk into a bedroom from the front door, but this did not affect our stay too much. Nefyn itself is not the most lively of villages, but very short drive to several good and child friendly pubs. The nearby garden was lovely, and ideal for a picnic with a view of the sea, and surrounding hills. House is on coastal footpath, and short walk to the beach. Overall a wonderful stay. Diolch yn fawr iawn!

    The view of the sea and mountains are breathtaking and was lovely just to sit and look at the view, changing all the time. Close to coastal path and beach within walking distance. The accommodation is modern, comfortable and all mod cons. 10+ Will definitely be booking again.

  • "We were very pleased with Porth Penwaig."

    It was very well designed and had everything you would need. The views from the lounge are outstanding and it is the perfect place to relax or explore the surrounding areas. Also ideal for walks along the coast. The couple who own the property were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We will be recommending it to our family and friends.

  • "Absolutely amazing!"

    It was simply perfect - beautifully furnished and modern, in a perfect location. The owner was so friendly, and just a text away with whatever we needed (and even left fresh flowers on arrival). The sea views are breathtaking, especially at sunset. You do need to go through the twin room on the ground floor to get to the front door so it may not be suitable for those wanting privacy, but it wasn’t an issue for us :-) We can’t wait to come back!

The property

Nestled down a private lane, close to the centre of Nefyn on the north coast of the magnificent Llŷn Peninsula, you can truly relax overlooking the sea and the magnificent coastline with views of Ynys Llanddwyn and Yr Eifl, is Porth Penwaig.

This charming property boasts superb sea views and makes for an idyllic retreat for a small family or couple wanting to escape to the North Wales coast, with the added convenience of being within easy reach of the popular resorts of Pwllheli and Abersoch, as well as excellent walking and hiking opportunities in Snowdonia National Park.

Leave your car on the spacious driveway and enter through the twin bedroom to find a Smart TV and fitted wardrobes, complete with lovely oak doors, and a shower room with walk-in shower, where you can prepare for each day, while venturing up the staircase will bring you to the open-plan living space.

The fully-fitted kitchen offers a range of integrated appliances, including a fridge/freezer and a dishwasher to take care of any washing up, here you can prepare delicious home-cooked meals to be enjoyed at the dining table, or perhaps on the balcony, through the bi-folding doors, as you admire the impressive sea views and take advantage of being within a dark skies zone with an evening of stragazing.

Relax on the sofa in the sitting room with a glass of wine as you find your favourite show to watch on the Smart TV or sit peacefully and enjoy the scenic mountain views, before retiring to the king-size bedroom to catch up on rest.

Spend time in the large private garden with amazing views; just a short stroll down the private lane and accessed by a gate, enjoy a meal on the picnic table to really capture the best of the coastal landscape and soak up your incredible setting.

Nefyn's beach is a short walk away, boasting a two-mile stretch of golden sand, perfect for sunbathing, sandcastle building, swimming and exploring rockpools, making it extremely popular with families, while a good selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and with a beach cafe opening in the summer 2021 can all be found within easy reach.

Take a walk along the coastal path accessed directly from the property with the world famous Tŷ Coch Inn offering excellent food and drink just a 40 minute walk.

Keen golfers can soak up the breath-taking scenery whilst enjoying a round at the 27-hole championship course Nefyn & District Golf Club, while keen walkers can join the Llŷn Coastal Path, which runs along the cliff tops between Caernarfon and Porthmadog in Gwynedd, encompassing much of the Llŷn Peninsula's designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Head to the sailing haven of Pwllheli and visit its impressive marina, which holds 400 boats, as well as two fantastic beaches, one of which has been awarded a Blue Flag, where you can try your hand at a range of watersports before stopping off for some well-deserved award-winning fish and chips.

Close by are Criccieth and its imposing medieval castle, and the picturesque harbour town of Abersoch, while a trip to Bardsey Island to see an array of seabirds is a must for wildlife lovers.

Snowdonia National Park is within 25 miles and boasts spectacular landscapes and a plethora of walking and cycling trails, and for those seeking adventure, a challenging hike up Snowdon, Wales' highest peak, awaits.
