Book a Llyn Peninsula Holiday Cottage in the for a Relaxing Seaside Holiday in Gwynedd North Wales

THE LLYN PENINSULA or Lleyn Peninsula, as it is sometimes spelt, in Gwynedd, Whether seeking to book a large holiday cottage for an activity holiday with friends or seeking romantic cottages for couples this North Wales peninsula offers a splendid choice of coastal and countryside cottages in a very beautiful location. The peninsula is full of rocky coves and sandy beaches warmed by the Gulf Stream and bound in by its coastal path. A land of contrasts, steeped in history, it remains an unspoilt, little-known gem.

Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty it is encircled by the Wales Coast Path. Often compared with the Cornwall of fifty years ago, its 70 miles of wildlife-rich coastline starts in rugged fashion on the north side with the towering peak of Yr Eifl plunging dramatically down to sea. And at its very point lies Bardsey Island, burial place of 20,000 saints, which has drawn pilgrims to its now ruined monastery, along the pilgrims’ road, ever since the 6th century.

With its unique and diverse blend of scenery; secluded rocky coves; sheltered little ports, sandy beaches; mountains; narrow little lanes lined with wildflowers; open countryside and wooded valleys, it provides the ideal setting for a relaxing holiday. There is also the added touch of “foreignness” with its unusual place-names and the Welsh language spoken around you, which makes the holiday that little different.
