Morfa Nefyn is a small village on Wales’ Llŷn Peninsula, with a long, sandy beach and one of the country’s best seaside pubs. If you want easy access to the rugged coast, mountains and lakes of northwest Wales, Morfa Nefyn holiday cottages have a lot to offer. This traditional fishing community faces north, into the Irish Sea, in the county of Gwynedd, which was recently named as one of the best holiday destinations in the world. The village itself is little more than a scattering of stone cottages, a couple of shops, a chapel and a post office, overlooking a spectacular two-mile sweep of golden sand, sheltered from the sea by a pair of jagged headlands. Fishing boats bob in the natural harbour while Snowdonia's mountains loom in the distance. On the east headland, Ty Coch Inn has appeared in the Top Ten Beach Bars in the World. Enjoy a pint of local ale as the sun sets on the horizon, or at one of the tables next to a roaring fire. Ty Coch serves good food, too, prepared with fresh, seasonal ingredients from the fields of Gwynedd.
