  • "Porth Penwaig is a lovely place to stay."

    The cottage is fully equipped, all kitchen utensils , bedding & even a picnic basket is supplied. It was spotlessly clean & the view is just breathtaking. The location was perfect for us, we have a 5yo daughter & a small dog. It was situated in a quiet coldesac, but walking distance to the beach. We walked the local coastal paths & climbed up one of the mountains. The Cliffs pub just up in Morfa serves delicious food. There is a pool table there which entertained our daughter for an evening when we popped in for a drink. This is a perfect stay if you are wanting to relax & recharge. On a rainy day we drove to a bowling alley which was approx 20mins away. Caernarfon & Portmadog are approx 30-40min drive for a change of scenery. The hosts do live next door & the lady was very friendly. There's nothing negative to say , thankyou for a lovely stay :)

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, a gem of a place to spend time relaxing."

    Modern and comfortable, great use of limited space. The view from the massive first floor lounge window and balcony was breathtaking. So wonderful to be able to watch the sea from the comfort of a sofa. Great location only a five minute walk to the massive, mostly, dog friendly beach and the stunning coastal path walks. The owners were charming and most helpful. We would have loved to stay longer and are already taking about a return visit.

    A holiday made even better by the beautiful accommodation. Porth Penwaig is a warm, comfortable and very nicely decorated cottage with all the mod cons. More than that though, the views from the cottage are second to none. There’s nothing better than waking up to a sea view and knowing that you’re only a 5 minute walk from the beach. In addition, the hosts are welcoming and helpful. This site was perfect for us as we love long walks along the beach and coastal paths. As it got dark, it was nice knowing that we were going back to a warm place where we could prepare and cook a warming meal. The beds were comfortable too, so we were able to get a good nights sleep. We will definitely be booking again. Loved this placed.

    The apartment is clean, facilities inside are very good. Nice stay and people there are very friendly and welcoming. A good base for reaching any part of the Llyn or further like Porthmadog. Only two little suggestions … The shower is great, but I noticed the shower base can be a bit slippy when you first step in it, maybe a shower mat needed so your feet grip. And the outside veranda windows need cleaning, this would make viewing outside from the inside even better as the sun sets.

    Thank you for your wonderful comments and suggestions. The outside veranda windows are supposed to be cleaned after each guest as per instruction to ensure that the view is not ruined. Apologies that this did not happen for your visit. It has been mentioned to the cleaner. 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

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.

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.
