  • "A lovely hidden gem."

    The cottage was so comfortable and homely it had everything you would want. Great location for visiting places nearby and to come back and relax in the hot tub in the evenings to watch the sunset. Lovely place to get some rest and relaxation we would highly recommend here.

  • "We had a lovely week in this beautiful, very well equipped cottage."

    It had everything we needed to enjoy our stay, starting with a thoughtful welcome hamper. It was the perfect base to explore the peninsula which has an incredible coastline and stunning beaches. The hot tub was a great way to relax afterwards. Wish we’d booked longer and will definitely return one day.

    We very much enjoyed exploring the peninsula and the cottage was a great location for this. The hot tub was fantastic for soothing sore feet and muscles after long walks. The cottage had everything that we needed. Thanks very much.

  • "A very comfortable and well refurbished Cottage."

    A great place to stay with easy access to great walks on the beautiful north wales coast. The cottage, which has been expertly converted from what was once a dairy, it is very comfortable and exceptionally well equipped. The cottage was perfectly clean and he welcome pack was excellent. The hot tub is an extra bonus. Carole (with an e btw!) and James were excellent hosts We had car problems on the journey to the cottage and were very late arriving. We kept in contact supportive. We were welcomed by Carole who lives next door James and Carole put me in contact with the local garage who, much to my surprise, were able to diagnose the problem and obtain and fit the necessary part the following day. It was a pleasure to chat to Carole although, as noted before, she was not at all intrusive. The history of the building was very interesting at one point it was a general store, haberdashery and private clinic all run by the same person! The cottage is highly recommended

  • "Lovely cottage with tasteful touches and it was nice to meet Carol, the host, in person."

    Basket of goodies, milk & bread appreciated. Enclosure for hot tub meant the lovely views could not be enjoyed when sitting outside, but a great facility for hot tub lovers.

    Carole, the owner, who lived next door was really welcoming and helpful but not intrusive in any way. The hot tub was well maintained and a wonderful treat to come back to after a day exploring the beautiful surroundings. Would highly recommend it as a perfect getaway.

    The hot tup was great after a long day hiking along the coastal paths & taking in the amazing views, then it was lovely relaxing in front of the wood burner.

  • "The property was amazing, and had everything we needed, even had a mini hamper, milk and a loaf of bread upon arrival, the owners, who lived nextdoor were nice and very accommodating, the hot tub was great followed by the log fire which made the place worth going, my only niggle and it was a very small one, was that the radiators were locked to 18 degrees which made the mornings quite cold, but this was a minor detail and wouldn't stop us going again!"

    We was there for 3 nights which wasn't enough to see the local beaches ect, this place definitely gets a 10/10 from us

  • "We had a perfect anniversary weekend at this lovely cottage."

    James and Carole were friendly and helpful, and went out of their way to make it a great stay. It was super cosy - we spent mornings and evenings in front of the log fire! And seeing the stars at night from the hot tub was magical, we've never seen so many stars. The cottage was in the perfect location, very quiet and 5 minutes from a small village, and a walk away from a beautiful beach. We would love to come back to visit in the future.

    The cottage is really, cosy, comfortable and homely and it was an added bonus to have a hot tub which we really enjoyed using. The hosts James and Carol were really friendly and and made us feel welcome on our arrival. We thought it was a lovely touch to have a welcome basket that contained biscuits, teas, coffees, jam, butter, chocolate, a beer and small wine. There was also a loaf of bread and a pint of milk for us which we were not expecting. We would definitely book again as it was the ideal place to recharge and see some of Wales. Thank you.

    The cottage provided us the perfect space for some much needed R&R, the hot tub topped the weekend off. The area is so quiet and just a short walk to the coastal path, and a short drive to other tows nearby. The cottage was clean and tidy and had everything we needed, the bed was so comfy! James was a great host and helped us with everything we needed. We will definitely be recommending to family and friends.

    James and Carole, the hosts could not have done any more for us and made sure we had everything we needed. The cottage is in a perfect spot for exploring the Llŷn by day and then returning for a dip in the hot tub under the stars. Could not recommend it enough, thoroughly enjoyed.

The property

Aberdaron 1.8 miles.

Resting in the small village of Rhiw, on the Llŷn Peninsula, is this semi-detached cottage, Bwthyn Siop Pencaerau.

With exposed bricks and beams, this stunning annex is a romantic dwelling for a coastal trip to this part of North Wales.

The interior of the property has a traditional cottage feel with a woodburning stove taking centre stage in the living/dining room, along with a Smart TV, leather sofas and a dining table so guests can enjoy a romantic evening meal rustled up in the well-equipped kitchen.

Moving upstairs there is a charming yellow bedroom with an exposed brick feature wall, storage so guests can unpack and a stylish en-suite shower room so you can get ready in style for an evening out or wash those sandy feet after a day at the beach.

Outside there is off-road parking, and a delightful courtyard to the rear of the house with a hot tub and two sun loungers so you can spend a romantic evening under the stars, as well as a front patio so you can take your morning coffee into the fresh air.

Just a short drive away is the gorgeous Porth Ysgo beach, whilst a little further you can explore the beach at Aberdaron, as well as the lovely Porth Simdde reserve and the shoreside 12th century church.

In the opposite direction you can head into Rhiw which boasts a 4 mile sandy beach and Plas yn Rhiw, a 16th century National Trust manor house with surrounding gardens.

A little further afar you can discover the coastal Castell Criccieth, head into Snowdonia National Park for an exciting day in the countryside, or take a thrill seeking adventure at Glasfryn Parc which is an activity centre hosting go karting, archery, watersports, bowling and much more.

For an exciting and scenic coastal break to this part of North Wales, choose Bwthyn Siop Pencaerau as your base.
