The Llŷn Peninsula lies on the north-west corner of Wales, separating Caernarfon Bay to the north from Cardigan Bay to the south. To the east of the peninsula are the mountains of Snowdonia, the highest mountain range in the UK south of the Scottish Highlands. With three sides framed by the sea and beautiful and secluded beaches, and the other dominated by the peaks of the National Park, the Llŷn Peninsula is one of the most breathtaking places to spend a break in one of our excellent holiday cottages.
The peninsula stretches out around 30 miles into the Irish Sea and is only around 8 miles wide for most of its length. Llŷn enjoys a mild, drier climate than that of the rest of Wales due to its proximity to the Gulf Stream ocean current. During the winter there are few frosts, but mountains to the east are frequently covered with snow which makes for a stunning sight from Llŷn.
Around the peninsula's nearly 100 miles of coastline, there are sweeping bays, small coves and rocky cliffs as well as islands, reefs and impressive headlands. The peninsula has its own range of hills, the most prominent of which is in the north east, where the sharp peaks of Yr Eifl form the highest point on Llŷn at 564 metres, sloping down into the waters of Caernarfon Bay below.
The peninsula has a handful of lovely towns and villages in which to spend a break in one of our excellent holiday cottages.
Aberdaron is a small community and village at the tip of the Llŷn Peninsula and is often referred to as 'the Land's End of Wales'. The entire area around Aberdaron has been designated a Landscape of Historic Interest. The coastal waters are part of Pen Llŷn a'r Sarnau Special Area of Conservation, one of the largest marine designated sites in the UK, while the coastline forms part of the Aberdaron Coast and Bardsey Island Special Protection Area.
Bardsey Island itself is of interest to tourists, with a ferry operating from the Porth Meudwy inlet close to Aberdaron. Bardsey is a favourite spot among bird watchers, with thousands of birds stopping off at the nature reserve on their various migration routes. The island is also one of the best places in this part of Wales to see grey seals, sunbathing on the rocks or bobbing in the sea, and there’s even the chance of spotting the odd dolphin or porpoise in the water.
Abersoch is a village seaside resort on the southern edge of the Llŷn Peninsula, with top-notch beaches, internationally recognised sailing waters and beautiful scenery. The views of the Snowdonia National Park, just the other side of Abersoch Bay can be spectacular given the right weather conditions, and at the southern edge of this part of the Llŷn Peninsula is the area known as Cilan Uchaf, which aside from offering fine views over the bay is also a prime spot for horse riding.
Another option is Morfa Nefyn, a small village on the northern coast of the Llŷn Peninsula, renowned for its glorious beaches and superb water sports opportunities. The waters of Caernarfon Bay are among the cleanest around the entire Welsh coastline.
The Llyn (or Lleyn) Peninsula is a proud sweeping peninsula on the Wales coast that bows into the Irish Sea where dolphins swim and the offshore islands are windswept and largely untouched. The Peninsula stretches from Caernarfon to Porthmadog and our Llyn cottages set you right in the middle of this narrow headland where you are never far from the sea.
