  • "We have stayed in a lot of houses/cottages for new year with our friends but this was by far the best."

    It was extremely clean and well equipped. We spent a lot of time playing board games around the big table in the dining room and the log fire was lovely and cosy. We also enjoyed using the hot tub and walking down to the beach. We would definitely come back again. Thank you.

  • "Words can't describe how beautiful Llwyn Aethnen really is."

    If your after a quiet and relaxing holiday then I highly recommend staying at this property, it was the perfect choice and setting for us to escape the madness of city life. The owner Iwan was so accommodating and did everything that we requested to make our Christmas stay feel like home from home and even decorated the cottage for us for our Christmas stay. Iwan even allowed us to come to the cottage a day early and even left us a little welcome pack with tea, coffee, milk, chocolate and prosecco which was such a lovely and welcoming touch. The property is very clean and tidy and is well equipped it literally has everything you need. The views are just amazing especially from the hot tub and the beach is just a short walk away with some breathtaking views and a national trust walk if you want some regular exercise. I highly recommend this property and is deffo on my agenda to stop again.

  • "We were a family group of five adults and had a wonderful stay at Llwyn Aethnen."

    Lovely warm cosy cottage with everything you need for a stay in this beautiful part of Wales. With two lounges and shower rooms as well as a dining room there was plenty of space for six people without being on top of each other . The hot tub was truly special . Very private and with very little light pollution the night skies were amazing. There was a lovely welcome pack of local produce and even a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge chilling on our arrival. Extremely helpful host Iwan , nothing was too much trouble . Thank you for our amazing stay !

  • "We really enjoyed our holiday at Llywn Aethnen."

    Unfortunately we were late due to a tyre puncture and Iwan met us and showed us around late in the evening. We were so happy to settle into such a lovely cottage. Any issues and Iwan responded straight away and sorted it out. The local area is beautiful with the beach a short walk away. The house has everything you would need, for us as a family it was fantastic having the washing machine, dryer and line. My boys loved that their were toys in the cottage also. Iwan thought of everything. We would love to return one day. Thank you for a lovely stay!

    The house is immaculate and homely with little touches that really made it special. There was an abundance of kitchen utensils, towels and even games for the children.

The property

Resting peacefully in the breath-taking village of Trefor, you will find the beautiful Llwyn Aethnen.

Dating back to the 1500s, this stone-fronted, Grade II listed cottage offers an idyllic base for a family or group of six, looking to explore the true delights that North Wales has to offer.

Open up the pretty stable door and step into the warmth of the hallway, where you can pull off your mud-splattered boots following an awe-inspiring walk through the countryside.

Kick-back and relax on the stylish grey sofa within the spacious sitting room as you flick on the TV and admire the contemporary electric fire, before rustling up a tasty afternoon snack in the well-equipped kitchen, complete with all the necessary appliances for a smooth-sailing stay.

Delight in mouth-watering meals at the beautiful oak dining table as you crack open a bottle of bubbly and exchange your most memorable moments from your holiday so far.

Continue your evening in front of the traditional woodburning stove that sits perfectly within the magnificent inglenook fireplace, as you snuggle up to your nearest and dearest and enjoy a movie on the Smart TV.

Climb the staircase up to the first floor and be greeted by a bright and airy king-size bedroom that can be transformed into a twin on request.

A further twin bedroom offers a fantastic space to escape the excitement and wind down with your favourite book, before drifting off to sleep.

Discover an attractive double bedroom decorated with pretty oak furnishings and complete with ample storage space, leaving you with plenty of room to house all of your belongings.

Take your time getting ready for the day ahead in the chic first-floor shower room, or head downstairs for a quick rinse in the ground-floor shower room.

Soak up your incredible surroundings as you enjoy a dip in the hot tub or dine alfresco out on the patio, whilst the children play happily on the lawn.

Grab your bikes and embark on a spectacular cycle down to Traeth Nefyn Beach where you can indulge in a portion of fish and chips or a tasty ice cream, before continuing along the Llŷn coastal path towards the quaint coastal village of Porthdinllaen.

Stop off at the famous Tŷ Coch Inn for a bite to eat or enjoy a relaxing round of golf at the Nefyn District Golf Club.

Within 3/4 minutes walk of the property is the popular Trefor beach, perfect for taking in some scenery on a dramatic day of the Sea Stacks and Caernarfon Bay just a bit further along part of the Coast Path.

Spend the day in the bustling town of Caernarfon, where you can lose yourself in the history of Caernarfon Castle, a grand fortress and World Heritage Site dating all the way back to the 11th century, or take relaxing ride through the countryside on the Llanberis Lake Railways Steam Train.

Hop in the car and head in-land to the breath-taking Snowdonia National Park, boasting magnificent hiking trails and its very own surfing school, or head further afield to hike through beautiful meadows and discover the enchanting Aber Falls Waterfall.

Explore Slate Caverns or fly through the mountains with a family day out to Zip World before a quick visit to the fun-filled Greenwood family park.

Upon your return to your self-catering cottage, why not stop off at the local pub for a refreshing pint with the locals?

For an unforgettable escape to the North Wales Coast, book a stay at Llwyn Aethnen.
