  • "We had the most amazing stay at Pen y Cefn!"

    A real home from home! Our 2 dogs loved the outdoor space, and our 7yr old girl absolutely loved the hot tub! The views from the cottage, the peace and tranquility were second to none! We as a family cannot wait to return! A massive thankyou to you, the owners! You really have thought of everything in order to give everyone a memorable stay!

  • "Excellent all round."

    The cottage is superb. A real home from home. Everything has been thought of and the property is very well equipped. The hot tub is a real plus too. The location is ideal for exploring the coast line as well as being secluded and peaceful. We are already devising a plan to visit again. Thanks for having us.

  • "Great, quiet, secure location, ideally positioned to travel to many tourist attractions."

    Dogs loved the outdoor space. Bonus having the hot tub. Well equipped spacious kitchen, large dining table and two long sofa’s which was comfortable for the three of us. Main two bedrooms comfortable with great storage space. The two bathrooms are very small with limited space for turning and movement and would not suit those with mobility problems. Have made some suggestions directly with the owner regarding cleanliness issues and a couple of other things, who has been very responsive to them. Overall it is a lovely rental, needs some improvements here and there and is better suited to a small young family and/or 2 couples max because of the bathrooms.

  • "Thanks for a wonderful stay."

    Sheer luxury and so well equipped we loved everything about it. The setting is so peaceful and idyllic and just perfect for a relaxing break. Our sausage dog loved it too and was safe in the gated garden. The property was perfectly accessible too as my parents have mobility issues so they were able to walk around the property and garden easily with no trip hazards. The location is great and we were able to get to all of our favourite places within a short drive. All in all we would highly recommend ⭐️

    Thank you Gill for such lovely feedback. We are so pleased you and your party enjoyed your stay for both the 'sheer luxury' of the property and the' peaceful and idyllic' location. We certainly love it too! We would love to welcome you and your family and friends back to Pen Y Cefn some time in the future. Property Owner

    Nice welcome pack on arrival. Couple of small issues reported to the owners who welcomed us by email, and by maintaining contact, were able to confirm would be dealt with. One other issue which arose was amicably sorted out by the owners. Well presented property which we may well return to. Thanks to them for renting out a lovely family home which is ideal for family holidays

  • "Has the potential to be a lot better."

    Pen Y Cefn has the most beautiful, private setting in a lovely part of North Wales but the owner really needs to address the cleaning and maintenance issues. This place was grubby, dusty and needed a deep clean.

    Thank you for your very positive feedback on the setting and location of our much loved cottage As owners, we had already scheduled in a maintenance period in January/February 2023 to carry out a FRESHENING UP OF THE INTERIOR through repainting, and minor repairs, after a very busy booking season last year all through September, October, November and into December. We have in addition changed to a NEW CLEANING TEAM from a different provider for 2023 with an emphasis being placed on high standards of cleanliness every changeover. I am confident our much valued guests will appreciate these innovations for the new season of 2023. Property Owner

    Bathrooms smaller than expected. Lots of dust eg skirting boards, bed frames, lamp shades and cobwebs needs a more regular deep clean. Bed creaked. Good storage and facilities in kitchen. Walls in need of a refresh. For the price paid would expect it to be spotless.

    It had everything we needed (and more) for a relaxing break. Even the guy who came to check the hot-tub chemicals said it's the best place he visits! It was our first UK holiday in a long time, and also the first with our young dog who loved the freedom of the garden (and we didn't have to worry about her escaping). It was such a nice break, and we were very sad to leave.

  • "We had a lovely stay - The cottage had everything we needed and we thought the setting was beautiful."

    The hot tub was a lovely treat at the end of each day. The location was excellent for exploring beaches, castles and Snowdonia. We had one longer trip to Llandudno which was worth the journey. The only thing we felt was missing was hairdryer - it could have been that this was mentioned in the pre information and we missed it though. Over all a really lovely stay plenty of space for 8 very comfortable and relaxing holiday all round.

    We arrived to find it beautiful and clean with little supplies dotted round the house to get us started. The hot tub was warm and ready to go and after a few days we needed some support and the contact number was very helpful, they came out at the earliest opportunity to get it back up and running. There wasn’t much around us but we loved that it was quiet in the evenings being set back off the main road. It was very spacious inside and had everything we could have asked for, We are already planning our next trip and can’t wait to return!

The property

Pwllheli 4.9 miles.

Pen Y Cefn is a traditional Welsh long cottage enjoying a lovely position amidst rolling countryside, settled at the centre of the Llyn Peninsula, but near to Pwllheli.

This stone-built cottage has an all-ground-floor layout, and boasts a light, contemporary interior, paired with classic touches such as the slate and a mill stone flooring in the entrance hall.

Enter this home-from-home after a day of exploring the stunning Llyn Peninsula by heading to the heart of the home, the open-plan living space; here you can relax in the sitting area before the Smart TV or listen to music via the blue-tooth sound bar before you begin to prepare the evening meal.

Enjoy cooking within the newly installed, fully equipped kitchen, with its central island and French windows opening onto a patio.

Eat out on sunny evenings on the south facing patio, which catches the sun and then relax with a glass of wine as you watch over the children make use of the safe enclosed lawned garden with hot tub.

Alternatively move through to gather around the large dining table and toast to your wonderful holiday.

Then return to relax in the lounge area with its own wood burning stove and stunning views of the surrounding countryside via bifold doors.

Settle down in one of the four superb bedrooms, choosing from one of two king-size, or two twin rooms, all boasting simple and elegant style as well as practical storage.

Completing the layout of the property is the bathroom and shower room.

The coastline around this region is dotted with castles and coves, while fishing, sailing and watersports are all available.

Most of the coastline is owned by the National Trust and there are many remote bays, sandy beaches, cliffs, and wildlife havens like Bardsey Island to explore.

The Llyn Peninsula is itself renowned for its outstanding scenery and varied walking.

The Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park is 25 miles away, with its dramatic scenery and superb walks.

Also within easy reach are Portmeirion and the Isle of Anglesey.

With its proximity to such a wide range of destinations, Rhosfawr at the centre of the peninsular makes a superb base for a break.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.

Pwllheli 4.9 miles, Morfa Nefyn 6 miles, Llanbedrog 8.5 miles, Abersoch 11miles

Pen Y Cefn is in the small hamlet of Rhosfawr at the centre of the peninsular but nearest to the unofficial capital of the Llyn Peninsula, Pwllheli, and this is where you can access a range of shops for food and essentials, as well as restaurants and pubs.
