Rhoshirwaun is a small, rural community on the spectacular Llyn Peninsula. This rugged arm of land juts into the ocean, in North Wales. It is an enchanting place to explore, with vast, sandy beaches, soaring cliffs and ancient fishing villages. There are no shops or pubs in the village – only a family-run garage – making it an ideal base if you want to relax in an authentic rural community and make the most of the surrounding countryside. The fields and woods on the doorstep of your Rhoshirwaun holiday cottage Gwynedd are crisscrossed by footpaths where you will often walk for miles with only the sound of birds singing in the hedgerows for company.
