    “Llyn Peninsula is an area of outstanding views - we went to Porth Awyr last year as well, and we and our bid dog are getting to know a lovely range of hill walks (not too steep!”

    ), in addition to the well-known coastal walks. More to come no doubt!

    ), in addition to the well-known coastal walks. More to come no doubt! The area is approaching Aberdaron, so is nearly at the end of the peninsula - you can see Bardey Island peeping through from the back garden. The cottage is good - especially if you enjoy a quiet, peaceful area, where the only likely ones to see are the local couple of farmers and their cows, sheeps, farm dogs - and an occasional friendly visit from the owner.

The cottage

Aberdaron 3.5 miles.

This attractive, detached whitewashed stone cottage is set on a quiet lane in a rural, picturesque location surrounded by wonderful rolling countryside, only a short drive from the beautiful little fishing village of Aberdaron.

This single-storey cottage will appeal to couples or a small family who want to enjoy time together exploring one of the most beautiful areas along this coastline.

The peace and tranquillity is wonderful and the cottage welcoming, boasting a sitting room with comfortable leather sofas making the perfect place to unwind after a long day exploring.

Put your feet up by the warming open fire and enjoy a good book, or reminisce over the day’s activities.

The farmhouse-style kitchen is well equipped with a comfy dining area ideal for leisurely breakfasts, leading through to the conservatory, which is great for catching the morning sun and enjoying a cup of fresh coffee whilst planning the day ahead.

Outside, the garden area enjoys a sunny aspect with fantastic countryside views.

Porth Awyr is surrounded by lovely country walks that join up with the Welsh Coastal Path, opening up miles of unspoilt coastal and clifftop walks.

Also within easy reach is the charming fishing village of Aberdaron, with its sheltered sandy beach, and the superb surf beach at Hells Mouth, really making this cottage an ideal base.

The famous Whistling Sands Beach is just over two miles away and is set in one of the National Trust’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The marine visitors centre in Aberdaron is also well worth a visit, or you can simply enjoy lunch at one of the local village pubs.

Abersoch and Pwllheli are popular resorts only a short drive away and further afield, but still within driving distance, is the Italianate village of Portmeirion, the wonderful Snowdonia National Park, and the Isle of Anglesey.

This pretty cottage is an ideal base for exploring the riches this beautiful area offers, all year round.

On each side of the river's mouth is the beach for walking and playing on, and a promenade where you can watch the sailing boats and regattas in the bay. There is also a National Trust visitor centre and car park. The popular resorts of Pwllheli and Abersoch are within easy reach. Discover fabulous castles and coves, or enjoy excellent fishing, watersports and golf opportunities, all available nearby.
